21. The Cincinnati Bengals Select DE Andre Branch, Clemson

Bengals woud probably love to add another rotational rusher on their defensive line, because I don't think a couple of first round busts like Derrick Harvey and Jamaal anderson are going to help them very much. 

22. The Cleveland Browns DE Nick Perry, Southern California

The Browns could use a high energy pass rusher like Nick Perry. He is a nice fit for a 4-3 team and he  has an explosiveness and motor that allows him to get around offensive linemen. He could easily become a fan favorite in Cleveland much like Jeremy Mincey here in Jacksonville. Their playing styles are very similiar to each other. 

23. The Detroit Lions Select CB Dre Kirkpatrick, Alabama

The Lions need secondary help quickly and Kirkpatrick would be a nice choice for them. Having an aerial circus is nice once in a while, but to have one every single week is going to catch up with you one of these days. Perhaps having Kirkpatrick could keep the Lions from giving up 40+ points to the Packers twice every year.  

24. The Pittsburgh Steelers Select OG David Decastro, Stanford

Trai Essex is starting to show his age, so the Steelers are going to need someone for the future.  While Doug Legursky is a nice person to have at guard, he also has to take over for the oft-injured Maurkice Pouncey. Decastro has the ability to run and pass block effectively, which is perfect for Steelers offense.
