Not many thought that Utah defensive tackle Star Lotulelei would drop to the Carolina Panthers at No. 14. And most certainly, not many thought that Florida State’s E.J. Manuel would end up being the first quarterback drafted at No. 16.

What kinds of surprises are in store for us tonight? It’s time to look ahead and delve into the Day 2 possibilities.

My latest mock draft incorporates all the combine results and latest transactions around the league. Free agency is two weeks away and once it opens team needs will change dramatically. As it stands today, the draft is gaining a little more clarity as we now have an idea or who could be the first overall pick in the draft.
