17. Justin Bethel, Presbyterian, 5-11, 200. He was a very good player at the FCS level, but he has to prove he can play with the big boys. His 39½-inch vertical jump at the combine got teams' notice. Bethel will take time to develop but should be a good special teams player while he's learning to play NFL defense.

18. Kelcie McCray, Arkansas State, 6-2, 202. He has good size and can move at free safety. McCray doesn't always take the right angle, and he is not the most consistent tackler.

19. Jerron McMillian, Maine, 5-11, 203. He worked out impressively and moved up the draft boards as a result. He had a very productive 2011 season. McMillian has a feel for coverage. He is a developmental prospect.

20. Winston Guy, Kentucky, 6-1, 218. This is a box safety who is speed deficient. Guy is a hard hitter. He is around the ball a lot. He has played cornerback as well as a rover-type position.

21. Sean Cattouse, California, 6-2, 211. He has the size it takes to mix it up in the running game. Cattouse lacks speed but has some athleticism. He came on late in the year but never played up to his potential.

22. Phillip Thomas, Syracuse, 5-10, 198. He was a productive college player but is speed deficient and lacks ideal size. He has decent instincts and toughness. Thomas has some special teams potential.
