Matt Barkley, QB, Philadelphia - A talented, but possible undersized, quarterback, Barkley needed to land in a spot where his lack of height wouldn’t be a problem. Chip Kelly's offense, or whatever version of it he brings to the NFL, values moving the defense around to create passing lanes, so Barkley shouldn’t have to worry much about passing over taller defensive lineman. After Vick reminds the league that he isn't very good anymore, which may take a year or so, Barkley will get the chance to win the job in Philly.
 
18. Aaron Dobson, WR, New England Patriots - A talented guy who goes to a great offense with a chance to play early, so why is his draft stock so low? Well, for good reason. The Patriots run one of the most complicated offensive systems in the league, and many receivers have failed to pick up the reads quickly enough to be productive. Time will tell if Dobson can, but if he does he'll be a steal at this slot.
 
19. Mike Glennon, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers -  Another of the backup quarterbacks with a chance to start in the next couple of years, Glennon has a strong arm and good size. He'll have at least a large part of this year, and most likely all of it, to improve his decision making and decrease his interceptions. If Freeman doesn’t have a bounce back year, he'll get the chance to start heading into 2014.
 
20. Tyler Eifert, TE, Cincinnati Bengals - I'm not a big fan of drafting tight ends, I think you can find value in plenty of places at the position, but the pickings get pretty slim this year at this point, so taking Eifert here isn't a bad idea. Cincinnati will likely use him in two tight end sets with Jermaine Gresham, and you could see him get a lot of work lined up at wideout too. He could end up like a poor man's Gronk.
