33. Jacksonville Jaguars
Jordan Poyer, CB, Oregon State
After improving their pass rush, adding a cornerback that can play outside and contribute on special teams would be a fantastic pickup for the Jaguards. Poyer doesn’t have elite speed, but every other part of his game is top-notch.
34. Kansas City Chiefs
Jesse Williams, DT, Alabama (SCOUTING NOTES)
If I were the Chiefs, I’d put Jesse Williams at nose tackle and let Dontari Poe play in more of an attacking position. Williams is the prototypical guy to take up space and blockers.
35. Philadelphia Eagles
Ryan Nassib, QB, Syracuse (SCOUTING REPORT)
Chip Kelly is an innovator – it is tough to to tell what sort of quarterback he is going to want in Philadelphia. Nassib has some athleticism and a decent arm and will not last too far on day two if at tall.
36. Detroit Lions
Dion Jordan, DE, Oregon (SCOUTING REPORT)
Jordan has a lot of talent, but concerns about his health and ability to keep weight on are troubling. As a potential Cliff Avril replacement, I like it.
37. Cincinnati Bengals (via OAK)
Giovani Bernard, RB, North Carolina
The Bengals need some more dynamic options in their backfield and Bernard is just the guy. He has better speed and elusiveness than Green-Ellis and can get more yards than the play gets blocked for. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Bengals draft two back somewhat early.
38. Arizona Cardinals
Matt Barkley, QB, USC (SCOUTING REPORT)
The Cardinals will probably have to trade up to land Barkley as I think he’ll probably be off the board by the end of the first round. With some offensive line help from the first round and possibly free agency, the Cardinals have the pieces in place for Barkley to be successful.
XX. Cleveland Browns
The Browns forfeit this pick due to the supplemental draft selection of Josh Gordon
39. New York Jets
Mike Glennon, QB, NC State (SCOUTING REPORT)
Mark Sanchez. Sanchez, Mark. Former USC quarterback. The Sanchize. Four good reasons to draft a quarterback.
40. Tennessee Titans
Johnathon Hankins, DL, Ohio State* (SCOUTING NOTES)
Hankins is a large man that moves like a much smaller one. That said, he doesn’t always play with the physicality and nastiness that NFL teams want to see from a defensive tackle. I can’t see him falling much lower than this.
41. Buffalo Bills
Kevin Minter, LB, LSU (SCOUTING NOTES)
This would be a dream for the Bills, landing a late first round talent at inside linebacker to go behind their talented – at least on paper – defensive line. Minter just tackles people.
42. Miami Dolphins
Robert Woods, WR, USC* (SCOUTING REPORT)
Woods was over-shadowed during his junior season, as Marqise Lee burst onto the nation’s stage. However, Woods has great hands, is a savvy route runner and competes for the ball on every play – he could play for my team any day.
43. Tampa Bay Bucs
Xavier Rhodes, CB/S, Florida State (SCOUTING NOTES)
Rhodes’ future might be at safety in the NFL, but the large-framed cornerback has the versatility to do a lot of things. A team looking to add a physical hybrid defensive back need not look any further.
44. Carolina Panthers
Zach Ertz, TE, Stanford (SCOUTING NOTES)
Adding another layer of security for Cam Newton in the form of a big tight end might be necessary after losing his offensive coordinator. Ertz is a complete player, blocking as well as being a talented receiver.
XX. New Orleans Saints
The Saints have forfeited their second round pick due to the “Bountygate” scandal.
45. San Diego Chargers
Stedman Bailey, WR, West Virginia (SCOUTING REPORT)
The Chargers haven’t had a lot of luck drafting receivers lately, but Bailey will not disappoint. He separates easily, has excellent hands and can contribute on special teams as well.
46. St. Louis Rams
Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama (SCOUTING REPORT)
Lacy would be the youthful replacement for Steven Jackson, who looks like his time as a featured back in the NFL is over. Lacy is a complete back who can come in and start as a rookie.
47. Dallas Cowboys
Travis Frederick, OG/OC, Wisconsin (SCOUTING REPORT)
Joining Fluker, Frederick would be the second addition the Cowboys offensive line. Demarco Murray and Tony Romo will thank Jerry Jones later.
48. Pittsburgh Steelers
Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington (SCOUTING REPORT)
Trufant has the swagger that will allow him to fit in immediately in Pittsburgh. He is physical, fast and can cover without safety help – which he won’t always get with Troy Polamalu flying around.
