49. New York Giants
Arthur Brown, LB, Kansas State (SCOUTING REPORT)
After snagging another pass rusher in round one, the Giants add Brown – a natural linebacker that will excel at the “Will” position in the NFL.
50. Chicago Bears
Corey Lemonier, DE, Auburn (SCOUTING REPORT)
Lemonier is getting some first round talk, but his inconsistency pulls him into the second round for me. Adding some speed opposite Julius Peppers would give the Bears secondary less time to have to cover the NFC North receivers.
51. Washington Redskins
Johnathan Hankins, DL, Ohio State* (SCOUTING REPORT)
The Redskins defensive line could use some talent and depth, especially with Adam Carriker suffering a setback in his recovery. Hankins is inconsistent, but flashes first round talent.
52. Minnesota Vikings
Mike Glennon, QB, NC State (SCOUTING REPORT)
Glennon’s feet and head are a work in progress, but he has an NFL ready arm. It remains to be seen if Christian Ponder is a franchise QB, but we know that Joe Webb isn’t a top backup nor a potential starter in the future.
53. Cincinnati Bengals
Damontre Moore, DE/OLB, Texas A&M* (SCOUTING REPORT)
Why not? Moore is getting knocks for off-field issues in some circles, but he has flashes of top-ten ability. If I were an NFL GM, I’d have no trouble picking him in the first round.
54. Miami Dolphins (via IND)
Aaron Dobson, WR, Marshall (SCOUTING REPORT)
Draft a young quarterback. Surround him with targets. Win playoff games. That seems to be what the Dolphins are trying to do and Dobson could be the next piece in the puzzle.
55. Seattle Seahawks
Robert Woods, WR, USC* (SCOUTING REPORT)
Pete Carroll and Robert Woods, a match made in heaven. The suddenly juggernaut Seahawks are loading up on talent on both sides of the ball and Woods would give Russell Wilson another dynamic outside target.
56. Green Bay Packers
Sylvester Williams, DT/DE, North Carolina (SCOUTING REPORT)
The Packers have a need for 3-4 linemen and Williams could be the guy here if the front office feels like he can come in and contribute right away.
57. Houston Texans
Jordan Poyer, CB, Oregon State (SCOUTING REPORT)
Adding Poyer as a third corner behind Kareem Jackson and Jonathan Joseph – he can compete with Brandon Harris – is necessary as the Colts are upping the arms race in the offense department.
58. Denver Broncos
Kyle Long, OL, Oregon (SCOUTING REPORT)
Long has an intriguing story and has some skills and athleticism, but I don’t see him as a first round talent. Put him in front of Manning and he will be a solid starter.
59. New England Patriots
Markus Wheaton, WR, Oregon State (SCOUTING REPORT)
Here is the double-dip at receiver that I alluded to. Wheaton can stretch the field vertically and is versatile enough to line up both inside and outside. I liken him to Deion Branch with (much) better speed.
60. Atlanta Falcons
Vance McDonald, TE, Rice
Tony Gonzalez is coming back for another year, but now is the time to draft his replacement. McDonald can contribute at all three levels of the passing game.
61. San Francisco 49ers
Zach Ertz, TE, Stanford (SCOUTING REPORT)
Adding Ertz to this offense would make it pretty ridiculous. The Ertz / Stanford / Harbaugh connection could be key here.
62. Baltimore Ravens
DJ Swearinger, CB/S, South Carolina (SCOUTING NOTES)
Ed Reed isn’t coming back. Swearinger can’t fill those shoes, but he has the talent to come in and help mold the new look Ravens defense.
