Day one of the 2014 NFL Draft is already in the books and now things gets interesting. The first round went pretty much as expected, but day two is where the depth and value of this draft will shine bright. If you look at the draft board it’s clear there are some very good players still available to start round two.

In fact, there will be very good players that last all the way through the third round. With the new draft format, Day Two is the most exciting and action packed day of the draft, here is how I think it shakes out.

Will Patriots fans ever see a scene similar to the one played out in Indianapolis earlier this year, with Andrew Luck defeating legendary Colts quarterback Peyton Manning?

It seems unfathomable at this juncture to picture Tom Brady leading a different team—let’s say the Vikings for arguments sake—into Gillette Stadium. As crazy as it sounds, I wouldn’t discount the possibility of Coach Bill Belichick moving on from Tom Brady before Brady is ready to move on himself.
