17. San Diego Chargers

Wisconsin. Melvin Gordon. 17. player. 13. Two running backs come off the board in back to back picks. The Chargers need an upgrade at running back and honestly only time will tell if Gordon or Gurley is better.. Running Back

18. Kansas City Chiefs

Wide Receiver. Arizona State. Jaelen Strong. 18. player. 124. Wide receivers in Kansas City scored zero touchdowns in 2014. For a full season. This doesn’t get as much attention as it should, but the Chiefs know it and continue to re-tool their pass catchers.

19. Cleveland Browns (via Buffalo Bills)

The Browns waited on picking up a quality offensive lineman and it pays off with Peat still on the board. Good teams are built in the trenches and the Browns get a foundation building block here.. Offensive Tackle. Stanford. Andrus Peat. 19. player. 53

20. Philadelphia Eagles

Jalen Collins. 20. player. 54. Time to bring in the second corner to pair with Byron Maxwell. Chip Kelly continues to trust his offensive scheme to carry the day and adds another quality defensive piece here.. Cornerback. LSU

21. Cincinnati Bengals

56. Alvin “Bud” Dupree finds a new home with the playoff-caliber Bengals. Is h the piece that finally gets them a win? That’s a big question for Marvin Lewis and company.. Defensive End. Kentucky. Alvin Dupree. 21. player

22. Pittsburgh Steelers

Safety. Alabama. Landon Collins. 22. player. 55. A new strong safety who may be able to set the tone on defense for the Steelers. He’s the best safety in the 2015 class by a long shot and he’s going to make the Steelers happy for years to come.

23. Detroit Lions

Offensive Tackle. LSU. La'el Collins. 23. player. 50. La’el Collins will help make Matthew Stafford look like himself again. Stafford is a threat for 5,000 yards every season and with a talented offensive tackle added to the mix, meeting that mark shouldn’t prove too difficult.

24. Arizona Cardinals

24. player. 32. With other linebackers already off the board, the Cardinals will have to “settle” for the talented Thompson. His intriguing ability and size make him a strong selection.. Linebacker. Washington. Shaq Thompson

Next: Picks 25-32 starting with a big guy for Carolina
