Holmgren played it too cute. Skins will ride the lightning.

    Plug-in from day 1.

4. Dolphins: (Trade) Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M

Holmgren saves face. Dolphins show a pulse.

Claiborne and (FA) Wright replace Barber and Talib. Makes sense.

Added Free Agent WRs. Pass on Blackmon.

Young QB. Add Dez 2.0 to (FA) Laurent Robinson.

Mike, I apologize!

9. Panthers: Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame

Cam’s the man.

17. Bengals: Stephon Gilmore, CB, South Carolina

Talented and unblemished resume.

18. Chargers: Mark Barron, S, Alabama

A healthy Cutler equals a playoff team.

20. Titans: Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama

Physical corner from a big-time program.

21. Bengals: Michael Brockers, DT, LSU

Can’t find these guys in the 2nd round. Can’t afford these guys in Free Agency.

22. Browns Brandon Weeden, QB, Oklahoma State

Mike strikes! The system fits Brandon like a   glove. Starts on day 1.

23. Lions: Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford

Another 5000 passing yards starts up front.

24. Steelers: Dont’a Hightower, ILB, Alabama

Rock solid. Will replace Farrier.

The Peyton project begins with protection.

26. Texans: Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor

Wright complements Andre Johnson.

27. Pats: Janoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama

Risk vs. reward.

Bookends with Clay.

29. Ravens: Devon Still, DT, Penn State

Toss up between Still and Worthy.

30. 49ers: Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford
