16. Houston Texans

player. 10. The Texans are going to try a year behind a lackluster starting QB (again), but they will add a weapon to replace Andre Johnson and help the new guy out.. Wide Receiver. UCF. Breshad Perriman. 16

17. San Diego Chargers

13. The running back position is finally settled with Gordon coming in and ready to be the feature back immediately. He’s an excellent player and the Chargers won’t have to worry too much about injury anymore.. Running Back. Wisconsin. Melvin Gordon. 17. player

18. Kansas City Chiefs

Wide Receiver. Arizona State. Jaelen Strong. 18. player. 124. Remember those zero (ZERO!) touchdowns that wide receivers scored in Kansas City last year? They need to do something to make sure those guys on the outside can score. Replacing one of them with Strong is a step in the right direction.

19. Cleveland Browns (via Buffalo Bills)

Offensive Tackle. Stanford. Andrus Peat. 19. player. 53. Having Peat in place will strengthen an offensive line that could use an anchor. The Browns’ second pick in the first round isn’t sexy again but it will help more than the flashy pick from last year.

20. Tennessee Titans (via Philadelphia Eagles)

20. player. 54. Seeing Dupree fall this far is a god send for the Titans. They brought in help this offseason, but Dupree will be the future. At 20 overall and with picks to burn now, he’s worth taking.. Defensive End. Kentucky. Alvin Dupree

Next: Picks 21-32

21. Cincinnati Bengals

Wide Receiver. Oklahoma. Dorial Green-Beckham. 21. player. 56. Green-Beckham is a talented wide receiver and he’ll provide another target for Andy Dalton to toss the ball to. If Dalton can’t do it with Green-Beckham in the mix then the Bengals may have bigger problems on their hands. It won’t be the receiving corps, though.

22. Pittsburgh Steelers

Safety. Alabama. Landon Collins. 22. player. 55. Bringing in the best safety in the draft, the Steelers make sure their defense doesn’t miss a beat. Collins is highly talented and will be a day one starter.

23. Detroit Lions

Malcom Brown. 23. player. 50. The Detroit Lions no longer have their stud defensive tackles, so bringing in a rookie who can be a building block in the interior line is important. Brown figures to be a foundation piece.. Defensive Tackle. Texas
