9. The Carolina Panthers Select DT Dontari Poe, Memphis

The Carolina Panthers will roll the dice once again on a boom-or-bust player in Dontari Poe. The Panthers couldn't stop the run at all last year and Poe, an athletic big man who tore up the track at the Scouting Combine, could help plug some holes on the interior and eat up blockers to allow Charles Johnson to get a good shot on the quarterback.  

10. The Buffalo Bills Select LB Luke Kuechly, Boston College

The Bills might overdraft Kuechly a bit, but he fortifies a group of linebackers that can truly shine behind a fearsome defensive line.

11. The Kansas City Chiefs Select OLB/DE Melvin Ingram, South Carolina

With Peyton Manning in the division now, having another pass rusher opposite of Tamba Hali is invaluable. They already have a couple of good corners and a very good safety in Eric Berry. With their offensive weapons finally returning from injury, the Chiefs are built for success.

12. The Seattle Seahawks Select DE Quinton Coples, North Carolina 

The Seahawks need some help for their pass rush and Coples could provide them with that boost. He would probably benefit quite well by playing on the other side of Chris Clemons.
