25. Atlanta Falcons- Max Tuerk, OL, USC

The Atlanta Falcons used the 2015 draft to restock the talent pool on the defensive side of the ball and now need to work on the offensive line. They are still trying to overcome the failure of top-pick Peter Konz who never developed into the starting center they expected.

USC’s Max Tuerk has the potential to succeed where Konz failed. Tuerk is a great athlete who excels at getting out on the move and throwing blocks all over the field. His movement skills and use of leverage makes him a good fit for Kyle Shanahan’s zone-blocking system.

Tuerk brings an added bonus with his versatility as he has experience lining up at offensive tackle, guard and center.

26. Seattle Seahawks- Laquon Treadwell, WR, Ole Miss

The Seattle Seahawks offseason trade for Jimmy Graham is already starting to look like a mistake. Graham has reportedly been very vocal about how unhappy he is with his role in the offense. He’s use to being the top offensive target but has yet to see many targets.

Seattle’s GM Jon Schineder has never been afraid to quickly cut ties with a malcontent, see Percy Harvin, which means Graham might have a short stay with the Seahawks.

If this the case, Seattle must work to bring in another offensive weapon for Russell Wilson. Ole Miss’s Laquon Treadwell could serve as a Graham replacement thanks to his size, leaping ability and ability to high point the ball.

27. Cincinnati Bengals- Leonard Floyd, LB, Georiga

The Cincinnati Bengals have one of the more deep rosters in the NFL. They’ve made a ton of great moves with their draft picks which has allowed them to employ a next-man-up strategy. Their decision to draft Cedric Ogbuehi and Jake Fisher in the first two rounds of the 2015 draft has set the offensive line up for a bright future.

This year they can use a similar strategy and target a versatile defender like Leonard Floyd. He gets most attention because of his potential as a pass rusher, but he has also shown strong coverage skills. The Bengals could bring him into the mix and develop him at either defensive end or linebacker.

28. Denver Broncos- Cody Whitehair, OG, Kansas State

Cody Whitehair is an underrated prospect who has a chance to be an excellent NFL offensive lineman. He’s a highly athletic player who quickly gets out of his stance and can work in space. Whitehair also excels at climbing to the second level and getting out on the move.

His skill set is a great Gary Kubiak’s zone-blocking scheme which looks for more athletic offensive linemen. With or without Peyton Manning, the Denver Broncos need to address their offensive line this offseason.
