The first round is history and there are still two days of draft fun to be had. There were some surprises and a few rises as well as falls in the annual selection process. Juiced Sports takes an immediate look at how the draft could go on Friday evening.
33. St. Louis: Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech
The Rams were able to take care of defense in the first with DT Michael Brockers from LSU. Now they can give their first round-worthy wide receiver in Stephen Hill.
34. Indianapolis: Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford
Andrew Luck needs someone to throw the ball to outside of Reggie Wayne and Luck is more than comfortable with Fleener who will come in and be his safety net.
35. Baltimore (MIN): Mychal Kendricks, ILB, California
Minnesota traded up with Baltimore and the Ravens grab Ray Lewis’ replacement in Kendricks. He’s a strong leader and a very good player.
36. Denver (TB): Jerel Worthy, DT, Michigan St.
Denver traded out of the first and still gets value with Michigan State’s star defensive tackle Jerel Worthy. The Broncos needed a man in the middle and they don’t sacrifice value with this pick.
37. Cleveland: Rueben Randle, WR, LSU
The Browns surprised everyone with their new quarterback in Brandon Weeden and have their running back in Trent Richardson, so they can now get their outside threat with Randle.
38. Jacksonville: Cordy Glenn, OT/OG, Georgia
Went WR in the first with their new number one in Justin Blackmon, but could still use some offensive line help. Glenn is a swing guy that will likely play guard and move Eben Britton out to right tackle.
39. St. Louis (WAS): Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford
He fell out of the first round, but Jonathan Martin has talent and would be a great blocker for Sam Bradford.
40. Carolina: Courtney Upshaw, DE, Alabama
Courtney Upshaw is the best player on the board and gives the Panthers a pass rushing presence on the opposite side of Charles Johnson.
41. Buffalo: Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina
You have been thrilled if your Buffalo. You’ve totally upgraded your defense with Stephon Gilmore and Mario Williams, so you upgrade the offense in round two.
42. Miami: Chris Givens, WR, Wake Forest
The Dolphins got their QB of the future, now they have to get someone for him to throw to. Givens is an underrated playmaker who can start right away for Miami (by default?).
43. Seattle: Devon Still, DT, Penn State
The defense doesn’t need a ton of work, but Still offers a run stopping ability that the Seahawks lack.
44. Kansas City: Amini Silatou, OG, Midwestern State
The small school guy can fill the void that Brian Waters left when he went to New England. The Chiefs need a lot of help in their interior offensive line.
45. St. Louis (DAL): Janoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama
Jeff Fisher isn’t afraid of off-the-field issues and needs a guy opposite Cortland Finnegan and Jenkins’ talent fits the bill.
46. Philadelphia: Bobby Wagner, OLB, Utah State
The Eagles got their guy in the first with Fletcher Cox, now they need to upgrade outside linebacker. Wagner can play all three spots.
47. New York Jets: Mohamed Sanu, WR, Rutgers
If the Jets want Mark Sanchez or Tim Tebow to succeed, they need get them weapons outside of Dustin Keller and Santonio Holmes. Sanu is a guy that is willing to be used in all situations and go across the middle. Perfect for Tony Sparano’s way of offense.
48. New England (OAK): Josh Robinson, CB, UCF
The Pats had a rough time on defense last season, and despite going defense with two picks in the first, they upgrade the secondary in the second.
49. San Diego: Dwayne Allen, TE, Clemson
Antonio Gates won’t play forever and has proven to have injury issues. Allen can step in for Gates and learn from one of the best in the business.
50. Chicago: Trumaine Johnson, CB, Montana
Despite the off-the-field issues, Johnson is a tremendous talent. He is likely to shore up the putrid secondary in Chicago.
51. Philadelphia (ARI): Brandon Boykin, CB, Georgia
The Eagles dealt Asante Samuel for a VHS copy of Gremlins 2 just before the draft; they get an upgrade at slot to fill his spot. Boykin is a prototypical nickel corner with tons of experience at the position.
52. Tennessee: Andre Branch, DE, Clemson
Branch falls in the draft in a big way, but the Titans reap the benefits and upgrades their defensive end position.
53. Cincinnati: Juron Criner, WR, Arizona
Criner is a playmaker and the Bengals have a ton of picks. While it’s a luxury, the Bengals need talent opposite A.J. Green.
54. Detroit: Jamell Fleming, CB, Oklahoma
The Lions need corner help and after taking care of their offensive line, they handle their secondary with a good player from a good school.
55. Atlanta: Peter Konz, OL, Wisconsin
Atlanta needs help with their interior offensive line, so with their first pick, they go safe with the center out of Wisconsin.
56. Pittsburgh: Alfonzo Dennard, CB, Nebraska
Dennard has a lot of talent and can serve as a backup safety and slot corner while he matures his game.
57. Denver: Brock Osweiler, QB, Arizona State
Denver needs an heir to Peyton Manning and they pick him up in the second round. Osweiler has got a lot of fans in the league.
58. Houston: Bobby Massie, OT, Mississippi
Releasing Eric Winston opened up at need at right tackle for Houston. They get a gem in Massie.
59. New Orleans: Forfeit
New Orleans has forfeited this pick due to punishments given by the NFL.
60. Green Bay: Lamar Miller, HB, Miami
Miller is a blazer and the Packers have no clear starter at running back.
61. Baltimore: Isiah Pead, HB, Cincinnati
Ray Rice may holdout with his Franchise Tag, so adding a great backup and potential fill-in is important.
62. San Francisco: Casey Heyward, CB, Vanderbilt
Carlos Rogers is a Pro Bowler, but outside of him, the Niners lack talent at corner.
63. New England: Brandon Brooks, OG, Miami (OH)
The Pats love adding through the lines, so they pick up Brooks who can play center and guard for New England.
64. New York Giants: Lavonte David, OLB, Nebraska
The Giants have always struggled at linebacker, so they add a stud in David.
65. Indianapolis: George Iloka, FS, Boise State
66. St. Louis: Zach Brown, OLB, UNC
67. Minnesota: James Brown, OG, Troy
68. Cleveland: Orson Charles, TE, Georgia
69. Tampa Bay: Jayron Hosley, CB, Virginia Tech
70. Washington: Ben Jones, OL, Georgia
71. Jacksonville: LaMichael James, HB, Oregon
72. Buffalo: Ladrius Green, TE, Louisiana-Lafayette
73. Miami: Michael Egnew, TE, Missouri
74. Miami (CHI/CAR): Mitchell Schwartz, OT, California
75. Kansas City: James-Michael Johnson, ILB, Nevada
76. Seattle: Keenan Robinson, ILB, Texas
77. Houston (PHI): Brandon Taylor, SS, LSU
78. New York Jets: Kelechi Osemele, OT/OG, Iowa St.
79. Oakland: Forfeited (2010 Supplemental Draft-Terrell Pryor)
The Raiders used this pick to draft Terrell Pryor in the 2010 Supplemental Draft.
80. San Diego: Jeff Allen, OT, Illinois
81. Chicago: Markelle Martin, FS, Oklahoma State
82. Arizona: Zebrie Sanders, OT, FSU
83. Dallas: Jared Crick, DE/DT, Nebraska
84. Tennessee: Ron Brooks, CB, LSU
85. Cincinnati: Vinny Curry, DE, Marshall
86. Atlanta: Donald Stephenson, OT, Oklahoma
87. Detroit: Brandon Washington, OG, Miami
88. Pittsburgh: Brian Quick, WR, Appalachian State
89. Denver: Michael Brewster, OL, Ohio State
90. Philadelphia (HOU): Kirk Cousins, QB, Michigan State
91. New Orleans: Chase Minnifield, CB, Virginia
92. Green Bay: Dwight Bentley, CB, Louisiana-Lafayette
93. Baltimore: Greg Childs, WR, Arkansas
94. San Francisco: Trent Robinson, FS, Michigan State
95. Cincinnati (NE): Antonio Allen, SS, South Carolina
96. New York Giants: Ryan Broyles, WR, Oklahoma
