49. New York Giants
Keenan Allen, WR, California* (SCOUTING REPORT)
The Giants caught a falling star in Werner in the first round and do the same with Allen in the second round. He isn’t fully healed it would seem from his knee injury, but he will be a solid option for Manning as a rookie.
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)
Blidi Wreh-Wilson, CB, UConn (SCOUTING REPORT)
Adding Wreh-Wilson to replace Sean Smith is a decent fit here for the Dolphins, although they might be tempted to add some receivers here as well.
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
Kawann Short, DT, Purdue (SCOUTING REPORT)The Packers have a need for defensive linemen and Short 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
Aaron Dobson, WR, Marshall (SCOUTING REPORT)
Dobson and Hunter is another double-dip in the NFL Draft for the Patriots. Adding two wide receivers that can help at multiple levels of the field heightens the chances that one of them will pan out.
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.
