3/12 Update

26. Houston Texans. Rueben Randle, WR, LSU
The search for a big-play receiver opposite Andre Johnson seems to be an unending journey. The Texans finally solve that problem by drafting Randle.

27. New England Patriots (from New Orleans). Courtney Upshaw, OLB, Alabama
The Patriots' defense struggled in 2011 and a big reason was its inability to pressure the quarterback. Upshaw would be the physical run defender and pass rusher who fits the scheme.

28. Green Bay Packers. Andre Branch, OLB, Clemson
Clay Matthews needs help rushing the passer and Branch is the dynamic athlete who would fit in perfectly on the opposite side.

29. Baltimore Ravens. Jerel Worthy, DT, Michigan State
Baltimore could use an injection of young talent on the defensive line. The Ravens have had success with gifted players with consistency issues similar to Worthy.

30. San Francisco 49ers. Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor
For the 49ers' offense to become a well-rounded unit, it must add speed and playmaking ability at the receiver position. Wright has both.

31. New England Patriots. Janoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama
In an effort to continue to upgrade their defense, the Patriots grab Jenkins. He has the special physical skills to be a shutdown cornerback.

32. New York Giants. Doug Martin, RB, Boise State
After releasing Brandon Jacobs and with Ahmad Bradshaw coming off surgery, the Giants are thin at running back. Martin is a strong inside runner with good receiving skills and is solid in pass protection.
I would take Worthy or Upshaw over Randle.
