33. Jacksonville Jaguars
Johnthan Banks, CB, Mississippi State (SCOUTING REPORT)
Alan Ball and Mike Harris are your starting cornerbacks in Jacksonville – that needs to change. Banks was much more impressive in games than he was at the NFL Combine.
34. San Francisco 49ers (via KC)
Matt Elam, S, Florida* (SCOUTING REPORT)
Elam is a missile. As a third safety, with the potential to start in place of Craig Dahl, the 49ers would be very happy to grab this gator at the top of the second round.
35. Philadelphia Eagles
Ryan Nassib, QB, Syracuse (SCOUTING REPORT)
It remains to be seen whether Chip Kelly will get along with Mike Vick and Nick Foles and vice-versa. Nassib is a talented guy that I can see fitting in in Philly.
36. Detroit Lions
Jamie Collins, DE/OLB, Southern Miss (SCOUTING REPORT)
If the Lions pass on the likes of Mingo, Ansah and Jordan in round one, they are going to need to get a guy from the second tier in round two. Collins is an explosive athlete that will continue to develop in the NFL.
37. Cincinnati Bengals (via OAK)
Menelik Watson, OL, Florida State
I see why people are infatuated with Watson, but he still has a lot to learn. His athleticism is off the charts, but he still needs to learn how to put it all together.
38. Arizona Cardinals
Matt Barkley, QB, USC (SCOUTING REPORT)
The Cardinals might be okay sticking with the status quo at quarterback – perhaps Drew Stanton is the quarterback of the future. That said, I think they would be wise to bring in some competition. Barkley is a polarizing prospect, but I like him better than the likes of Glennon and company here.
XX. Cleveland Browns
The Browns forfeit this pick due to the supplemental draft selection of Josh Gordon
39. New York Jets
Manti Te’o, LB, Notre Dame (SCOUTING REPORT)
Publicity! Oh yeah, and some defense too.
40. Tennessee Titans
Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame (SCOUTING REPORT)
Eifert in the second round is a talent that is hard to pass up. Replacing Jared Cook is tough, but Eifert has the hands and athletic ability to contribute as a rookie.
41. Buffalo Bills
Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee (SCOUTING REPORT)
The Bills added a quarterback in round one, now go get him a new target to throw to. Hunter’s potential is off the charts.
42. Miami Dolphins
Larry Warford, OG, Kentucky (SCOUTING REPORT)
Warford is a powerful blocker that would make Doug Martin smile. Plug Warford in and let him open up holes for Martin for the next 8-10 years.
43. Tampa Bay Bucs
Jamar Taylor, CB, Boise State (SCOUTING REPORT)
Even if the Bucs are able to trade for Revis, they shouldn’t avoid drafting a talented corner like Taylor either. Taylor is a physical corner that plays the way Schiano likes.
44. Carolina Panthers
Quinton Patton, WR, LA Tech (SCOUTING REPORT)
Brandon LaFell has developed into a starter, but the elusive 3rd option hasn’t appeared for Cam Newton yet at the wide receiver position. Patton and Steve Smith, along with LaFell, would give Newton the weapons he needs.
XX. New Orleans Saints
The Saints have forfeited their second round pick due to the “Bountygate” scandal.
45. San Diego Chargers
Giovani Bernard, RB, North Carolina
Is Ryan Mathews really the guy you want to trust with the ball? Gio Bernard is a dynamic back that could put Mathews on the sidelines permanently.
46. St. Louis Rams
Jesse Williams, DT, Alabama (SCOUTING NOTES)
Offensive line was taken care of in the first round, time for the defensive line. Williams will plug stuff up, allowing Fletcher Cox to penetrate and disrupt the defense.
47. Dallas Cowboys
Travis Frederick, OG/OC, Wisconsin (SCOUTING REPORT)
Fluker was just the beginning and Frederick might not be the end. He can play any of the interior line positions, giving the Cowboys some flexibility inside. I love him as a pulling guard, he is so good at the second level.
48. Pittsburgh Steelers
Stedman Bailey, WR, West Virginia (SCOUTING REPORT)
After losing Mike Wallace, and potentially Emmanuel Sanders, the Steelers need another wideout for Roethlisberger to throw to. Bailey runs great routes and can contribute on special teams as well.
