Stampede Blue is covering the 2012 NFL Draft from Radio City Music Hall in New York City April 26th-28th.

16. New York Jets - Gang Green Nation
Quinton Coples | Defensive end | North Carolina: Taking Coples over Ingram had a few people scratching their heads, but there is no denying Coples' talent. He gives the Jets another potent pass rusher to pair with Calvin Pace.
17. Cincinnati Bengals (via Oakland Raiders) - Cincy Jungle
Dre Kirkpatrick | Cornerback | Alabama: The Bengals had a big need at corner, and Kirkpatrick falling into their lap at 17 is a small coup in this first round.
18. San Diego Chargers - Bolts From The Blue
Melvin Ingram | Defensive end | South Carolina: The Chargers defense was the scapegoat for Norv Turner and A.J. Smith last year. Thus, it makes sense to beef up the pass rush with Ingram, a player many thought would not fall to them at No. 18.
19. Chicago Bears - Windy City Gridiron
Shea McClellin | Linebacker | Boise State: A surprise pick for a team with Brian Urlacher and Lance Briggs. The Bears could have gone offense here, but McClellin was highly rated coming into this draft.
20. Tennessee Titans - Music City Miracles
Kendall Wright | Wide receiver | Baylor: The Titans invested a ton in quarterback Jake Locker last year. This year, they give him a weapon to throw the ball to in Wright. Wright timed poorly in the 40 yard dash at the Scouting Combine, but he seems to play faster than his times suggest. The move also makes sense considering last season's injury to Kenny Britt.
