13. The Arizona Cardinals Select OT Cordy Glenn, Georgia

I don't know much about the Cardinals, but I do know that they were letting defenders hit Kevin Kolb and John Skelton way too much in 2011.   Glenn played at the tackle position at Georgia, but he has the frame to play at guard as well.He is the offensive line's version of caulk. he plugs up any leak among the line and solidifies the wall. It surely cannot hurt to have a backup plan in case Adam Snyder and Daryn Colledge cannot play. After all, they are both over 30.    

14. The Dallas Cowboys Select S Mark Barron, Alabama

If Jerry Jones and the Cowboys haven't learned yet, they need safety help or else they're going to destroyed by Tony Romo, Mike Vick, and soon, Robert Griffin III, Mark Barron was a solid cog in that Alabama defense and he has enough speed and length to cover the field. 

15. The Philadelphia Eagles Select DT Fletcher Cox, Mississippi State

Fletcher Cox was rising pretty quickly on some draft boards, but he isn't going to just keep dropping. He is an explosive tackle that can create disruptions in the backfield along with Cullen Jenkins.

16. The New York Jets Select RB Trent Richardson, Alabama

While the Jets aren't exactly hurting for running backs and aren't likely to stay in their spot during the actual draft, Richardson would represent too much value to just pass up. He is a top ten talent and he fits perfectly with Rex Ryan's ground and pound philosophy.
