33. Jacksonville Jaguars
Xavier Rhodes, CB/S, Florida State (SCOUTING NOTES)
Rhodes might end up transitioning to safety in the NFL, but his physicality and size will serve him well at either position.
34. Kansas City Chiefs
Zach Ertz, TE, Stanford (SCOUTING NOTES)
Ertz is going to be a complete tight end in the NFL – if he falls out of the top 25 picks, he’ll be a steal.
35. Philadelphia Eagles
Matt Barkley, QB, USC (SCOUTING REPORT)
It’s hard to predict who will be coaching in Philadelphia next year, but Matt Barkley is an upgrade over Nick Foles regardless of whose scheme is going to be run.
36. Detroit Lions
Phillip Thomas, FS, Fresno State (SCOUTING REPORT)
Thomas was the nation’s most productive safety in 2012 and is just the sort of ball-hawking defender the Lions need.
37. Cincinnati Bengals (via OAK)
Giovani Bernard, RB, North Carolina
Bernard would give the Bengals an added dimension. Green-Ellis is a solid back, but Bernard has the explosive play ability that he lacks.
38. Arizona Cardinals
Mike Glennon, QB, NC State (SCOUTING REPORT)
Now that the Cardinals have addressed their line, they get their very own quarterback. Glennon isn’t a polished prospect, but he has the skills necessary to develop.
XX. Cleveland Browns
The Browns forfeit this pick due to the supplemental draft selection of Josh Gordon
39. New York Jets
Jesse Williams, DT, Alabama (SCOUTING NOTES)
If Mike DeVito isn’t back with the Jets, Jesse Williams could prove to be a huge upgrade. He would make Mo Wilkerson even better.
40. Tennessee Titans
Terrance Williams, WR, Baylor (SCOUTING NOTES)
Reuniting Williams and Kendall Wright could prove to be just what Jake Locker needed in Tennessee. Williams has even more explosive play ability than Wright.
41. Buffalo Bills
Stedman Bailey, WR, West Virginia (SCOUTING NOTES)
You’ve got a quarterback, now give him a target. Stevie Williams and the talented Bailey, combined with CJ Spiller and Fred Jackson sounds like the start of something special.
42. Miami Dolphins
DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Clemson (SCOUTING NOTES)
“Nuke” had a national coming out party against LSU and may end up being the most sought-after receiver if he lights up the combine like we think he will.
43. Tampa Bay Bucs
Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee (SCOUTING NOTES)
If Hunter plays up to even 80% of his potential, the Bucs will be very happy. They are getting a big target with size and athleticism to spare.
44. Carolina Panthers
Sam Montgomery, DE/OLB, LSU* (SCOUTING NOTES)
Montgomery isn’t as flexible as his counterpart Mingo, but he has a few nice moves and some great straight-line speed. He is a boom/bust pick here.
XX. New Orleans Saints
The Saints have forfeited their second round pick due to the “Bountygate” scandal.
45. San Diego Chargers
Margus Hunt, DE, SMU (SCOUTING NOTES)
Margus Hunt is an absolute freak physically. His motor never stops and if his technique keeps improving, this will be a bargain of a pick.
46. St. Louis Rams
Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama (SCOUTING NOTES)
Lacy is a back with a set of moves that work for him. If Steven Jackson leaves, I don’t think the Rams will miss a beat with Lacy.
47. Dallas Cowboys
Da’rick Rogers, WR, Tennessee Tech
The Cowboys should probably add more offensive line help, but Rogers is an intriguing target here for Romo. Next to Witten and Bryant, Rogers could be an animal.
48. Pittsburgh Steelers
Jordan Poyer, CB, Oregon State
Poyer plays like a Steeler. He can press at the line of scrimmage and competes on every down – he would add some youth and talent to the already great Pittsburgh secondary.
