The Bengals don't always draft players with character issues; in fact, they haven't done that recently. However, they haven't hesitated to take troubled players in the past, and given that they're not capable of getting out of the first round, maybe they'll take a chance on Dorial Green-Beckham. Beckham would be a terrific number two target for Andy Dalton, and he would also draw attention away from A.J. Green.
22. Pittsburgh Steelers- Randy Gregory, DE/OLB
It always seems like a talented prospect falls to the Steelers every April, and that could be Randy Gregory this year. Pittsburgh is usually hesitant to select a conversion player in the first round but Gregory is too talented for the Steelers front office not to consider him. He would also fill a huge need as a edge rusher, as the Steelers definitely need to improve on their ability to get to the quarterback.
23. Detroit Lions- Melvin Gordon, RB
Reggie Bush was released earlier in the offseason, so the Lions need to find someone to split the load with Joique Bell. Detroit's front office likes picking the top player available, and Melvin Gordon is that guy.
24. Arizona Cardinals, Malcom Brown, DE/DT
The Cardinals have lost a number of talented defensive players over the last couple of years. One is Darnell Dockett, who signed with the rival 49ers. Arizona has brought in Cory Redding, but the former Colt is 34.
25. Carolina Panthers- Shaq Thompson, LB/S
Shaq Thompson told the media that he has gotten the most interest from the Panthers. That could mean nothing or that could mean everything. Carolina ' biggest needs are at receiver and at tackle but they could select the top prospect on the board to fill a lesser hole. The Panthers definitely need to find a third linebacker or a strong safety and they also need some backup plan for Thomas Davis, a 32 year old heading into his contract year.
