The Cowboys drafted the strong safety of the future last season with J.J. Wilcox, but free safety is a different discussion. Clinton-Dix would provide an immediate upgrade at free safety and would help give Dallas some semblance of a pass defense.
18. New York Jets - Marqise Lee, WR, USC
Although he's been a turnover machine, Geno Smith will likely hold onto the starting gig for another year. And the Jets need to add more weapons to the offensive arsenal and Lee will be one of the targets New York will consider.
19. Miami Dolphins - Cyrus Kouandjio, OT, Alabama
The Dolphins might be able to get by with their patchwork offensive line for now, but no question an upgrade is needed. Kouandjio is still developing and needs to improve his technique, but the size and athleticism combo is enough to earn him a spot in the top-20.
20. Arizona Cardinals - Ryan Shazier, OLB, Ohio State
The Cardinals defense has been quietly been one of the better units in the league, but need to get younger at outside linebacker. Shazier has shown the versatility to be effective dropping in space (122 tackles this season) or rushing the passer and making stops in the backfield (22.5 tackles for loss).
21. Green Bay Packers - Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech
Incumbent Packers starting tight ends Jermichael Finley and Andrew Quarless are both free agents after this season so the Packers might be shopping for a new starter at the position next offseason.
22. San Diego Chargers - Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
The Chargers addressed the offensive line in the first round last April with D.J. Fluker, but San Diego still needs help in the trenches, specifically at left tackle. Lewan has the athleticism, base and wingspan to start at left tackle as a rookie.
23. Philadelphia Eagles - Ra'Shede Hageman, DL, Minnesota
Chip Kelly will continue to build the Eagles' defense and look to get bigger, faster and stronger. Hageman is an upgrade in all three of those areas and would give Philadelphia a versatile guy in the trenches.
24. Kansas City Chiefs - Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State
The Chiefs offense needs to add more playmakers that will help produce explosive plays. Benjamin might give some Kansas City fans flashbacks of Jonathan Baldwin, because of the size, speed and potential, but he's worth the gamble here.
25. Cincinnati Bengals - Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State
The Bengals have some talented players on the depth chart at cornerback, but need to continue to build depth there. Gilbert has the size, body control and overall speed to hold up on an island at the NFL level.
26. Cleveland Browns (from Indianapolis) - Cedric Ogbuehi, OT, Texas A&M
The right tackle position has been a trouble spot for the Browns offense this season and Cleveland should toy with the idea of adding a right tackle and moving Mitchell Schwartz inside to guard. Ogbuehi isn't quite as well-known as his teammate Jake Matthews, but he is almost as talented with a high ceiling himself.
27. New Orleans Saints - Vic Beasley, OLB, Clemson
