If anything, I actually believe there could be quite a bit of jockying in the mid-20's range this year. With that in mind, it could get interesting depending on which WR's and which O-lineman are available. I suspect a team like San Francisco, for instance, might be interested in jumping ahead of Baltimore to have their first choice at interior lineman available. San Francisco might also be wanting to jump ahead of Denver for a certain TE or Houston if they have a specific WR.
All speculation, of course.
The mid-late 20s look like a total mish-mosh this year. 24 - 31 are all 3-4 teams except Denver (who is likely looking for a big dlineman.) And it looks like a ton of 3-4 edge rushers will be available about that time.
I've been playing out some scenarios just goofing around to see what happens if Tannehill falls based nothing on his skillset, just past experience with the 2nd/3rd/4th QBs tending to fall in recent years (except last year) and last year having so many teams grabbing young QBs that drafting another young QB seems unlikely. If he gets past the Browns at 22, perhaps thats a big "if" but I'd expect all of those playoff teams to be fielding calls from Mia or KC or Seattle trying to move back into the end of the 1st round.
And based on what I've been reading and hearing, there really doesn't seem to be that big a difference between say pick 7 and pick 40 so moving down a little would make sense to me. Then again, I assume everyone will be trying to move down in this draft.
