9. Detroit Lions- A’Shawn Robinson, DL, Alabama

Detroit is currently ranked among the league’s worst run defenses allowing over 4 yards per carry. Some of the issues might be due to Haloti Ngata working his way into shape after missing most of the preseason. However, even a full-strength Ngata might not be enough to solve Detroit’s problems against the run.

Alabama’s A’Shawn Robinson is arguably the top run-stuffing defender in this draft class.  He uses his thick frame, raw power and length to hold at the the point of attack. Robinson doesn’t offer much as a pass rusher which will negatively impact his overall stock. However, if a team is looking to clog up the middle Robinson is their man.

10. Washington Redskins- Vernon Hargreaves III, CB, Florida

The Washington Redskins have had issues in their secondary for the past several seasons. They have been unable to consistently shutdown the opponents passing attack and it has shown up in the record books. Vernon Hargreaves III is a fluid athlete who possesses the instincts to develop into a shut-down corner.

Hargreaves doesn’t have great size for the position but he makes up for that with his play-making ability. He doesn’t only keep the ball out of the receiver’s hands he also generates turnovers with interceptions.

11. Philadelphia Eagles- Jack Conklin, OL, Michigan State

A lot of the Eagles problems this season have been blamed on the team’s inability to run the football. They have talent at running back with reining rushing champion DeMarco Murray but there are issues along the offensive line. The problem area has been directly pointed out as the guard position.

Michigan State’s Jack Conklin is the best run blocker in this draft class thanks to his nasty demeanor and strength. Conklin currently lines up at left tackle, but he doesn’t have the quickest feet and might be better served moving inside to guard.

12. Cleveland Browns- De’Runnya Wilson, WR, Mississippi State

The Cleveland Browns quarterback situation gets most of the media attention, but it’s safe to say the wide receiver position is equally troubled. It’ll be tough for most quarterbacks to find a ton of success with the likes of Dwayne Bowe and Brian Hartline in the starting lineup.

De’Runnya Wilson is the type of playmaker that would help the Browns get a better handle on the quarterback situation. Wilson is a big target who plays a physical brand of football. He’s the type of target who consistently wins in contested situations and attacks the ball at its highest point.

Wilson will remind Johnny Manziel a lot of his college teammate Mike Evans.
