On the Beat: Experts' mock draft, picks Nos. 25-32

NFL.com gathered writers and broadcasters from around the country to play GM for the teams they cover on a daily basis.

25. MIAMI DOLPHINS

Team needs: Wide receiver, defensive line, linebacker, cornerback, offensive line (For more: AFC East team needs)

On the beat: Jeff Darlington, Miami Herald

Analysis: "The one thing you get with (him) is obviously just brilliant hands, this guy does not miss. He's got the size to become that prototypical wide receiver."


26. BALTIMORE RAVENS

Team needs: Wide receiver, linebacker, defensive line, safety, cornerback (For more: AFC North team needs)

On the beat: Mike Duffy, BaltimoreRavens.com

Analysis: "The Ravens never really had that home run hitting threat ... adding (this guy) would really add another dimension to this offense."


27. INDIANAPOLIS COLTS

Team needs: Defensive line, wide receiver, linebacker, running back (For more: AFC South team needs)

On the beat: Michael Lombardi, NFL Network

Analysis: "Let's face it, everything that starts with the Colts is their offense. Peyton Manning needs a receiver to replace Marvin Harrison, somebody who can make plays on the outside."


28. BUFFALO BILLS

Team needs: Offensive line, defensive line, tight end, linebacker, running back, wide receiver (For more: AFC East team needs)

On the beat: Chris Brown, Buffalobills.com

Analysis: "The Bills interviewed him at the combine ... (he's) been quoted as saying he was very excited coming out of that meeting, so apparently he feels he'd be a good fit for the Bills."


29. NEW YORK GIANTS

Team needs: Wide receiver, linebacker, tight end, offensive line, quarterback, running back (For more: NFC East team needs)

On the beat: Mike Garafolo, Newark Star-Ledger

Analysis: "This is the perfect time to take (this guy), it's good value ... he's a fundamentally sound guy, you know you're going to get a good football player, a guy who likes to play the game."


30. TENNESSEE TITANS

Team needs: Defensive line, wide receiver, cornerback, quarterback (For more: AFC South team needs)

On the beat: Vic Carucci, NFL.com

Analysis: "(He) offers a combination of excellent speed, the No. 1 priority quality at that position, really good ball instincts, and the mentality to make big plays, something a lot of college players don't have once they get to the NFL."


31. ARIZONA CARDINALS

Team needs: Linebacker, running back, defensive line, offensive line (For more: NFC West team needs)

On the beat: Ron Wolfley, Cardinals radio network

Analysis: "The great thing about (him), is that he'll grab you by the face mask and rip it right off. Now that's a Ken Whisenhunt guy, and that's who the Cardinals need."


32. PITTSBURGH STEELERS

Team needs: Defensive line, safety, tight end, offensive line, cornerback (For more: AFC North team needs)

On the beat: Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Analysis: "(He's) a very good two-gap player, he's a perfect fit for the defensive end in a 3-4 ... he's very good at taking on the block, reading the play, and making the tackle."
