33. Jacksonville Jaguars
Xavier Rhodes, CB/S, Florida State (SCOUTING NOTES)
Rhodes might end up going higher than this, but his technique is far behind his size and athleticism.
34. Kansas City Chiefs
Tyler Wilson, QB, Arkansas (SCOUTING NOTES)
The Chiefs will most likely have to trade back into the first round to land their quarterback. If they do, they’ll get a tough signal-caller that will excel with Andy Reid at the helm.
35. Philadelphia Eagles
Jesse Williams, DT, Alabama (SCOUTING NOTES)
The Eagles need someone stout in the middle and I’m not sure there is anyone stouter than Williams.
36. Detroit Lions
Jarvis Jones, OLB/ILB, Georgia (SCOUTING REPORT)
If rumors of Jones’ clean bill of health are true, Jones will go much higher than this – think top 15-20. If I’m an NFL team, I’d still be pretty worried.
37. Cincinnati Bengals (via OAK)
Giovani Bernard, RB, North Carolina
Bernard is the dynamic running back they need to overhaul the position. Green-Ellis is what he is – three to five yards and a cloud of dust.
38. Arizona Cardinals
Mike Glennon, QB, NC State (SCOUTING REPORT)
Glennon has a cannon, but he lacks good footwork and decision-making ability. Arizona may have to trade up a bit to land their quarterback, but they are getting a slightly better John Skelton here in my opinion.
XX. Cleveland Browns
The Browns forfeit this pick due to the supplemental draft selection of Josh Gordon
39. New York Jets
Jonathan Cyprien, SS, FIU
If LaRon Landry or Yeremiah Bell aren’t back with the team next year, the Jets will need someone to cover in the back end. Cyprien plays both positions and may be an upgrade on either player.
40. Tennessee Titans
Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame (SCOUTING NOTES)
Landing the dynamic Eifert this late is a coup for the Titans. He might have the strongest hands in the 2013 NFL Draft class.
41. Buffalo Bills
Manti Te’o, LB, Notre Dame (SCOUTING REPORT)
Cut through the “catfish” crap and you have a really good football player in Manti Te’o. If he falls into the latter part of the first round, expect a team like the Bills that need a solid tackler to target him.
42. Miami Dolphins
Zach Ertz, TE, Stanford (SCOUTING NOTES)
The Michael Egnew experiment has certainly failed so far. Ertz is a great receiver that can improve a bit in his blocking.
43. Tampa Bay Bucs
Larry Warford, OG, Kentucky
Warford is a guy that I’ve warmed to over the last year. He is a monster inside and is very tough to move off the point of attack.
44. Carolina Panthers
Quinton Patton, WR, LA Tech
Patton doesn’t do any one thing incredibly well, but he has the all around game to contribute as a rookie and aid in Cam Newton’s development.
XX. New Orleans Saints
The Saints have forfeited their second round pick due to the “Bountygate” scandal.
45. San Diego Chargers
Matt Barkley, QB, USC (SCOUTING REPORT)
Is it time to move on from Phillip Rivers? I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Chargers spend a day two pick on a quarterback that their new coaching staff feels they can develop.
46. St. Louis Rams
Markus Wheaton, WR, Oregon State (SCOUTING REPORT)
Wheaton is a receiver with speed that can attack all three levels in the passing game.
47. Dallas Cowboys
Travis Frederick, OG/OC, Wisconsin (SCOUTING REPORT)
Keep upgrading that offensive line – Fluker in the first, a new guard/center in the second. Somewhere, Tony Romo is smiling.
48. Pittsburgh Steelers
Tony Jefferson, S, Oklahoma* (SCOUTING REPORT)
Ryan Clark and Troy Polamalu can’t do it alone forever. Jefferson is a safety that loves playing in the box, but has the ability to cover deep as well.
