Round 2

33 LA Rams Brian Quick WR Appalachian State 6' 5" 220
DraftSite's comments:St. Louis needed a wide receiver, and while Quick isn't as heralded as some of the other wide receivers still on the board, he is just as talented. He'll be given plenty of opportunity to showcase with Sam Bradford throwing him the ball.
34 Indianapolis Coby Fleener TE Stanford 6' 6" 248
DraftSite's comments:Talk about a perfect fit for Fleener, going to Indianapolis to play with his college partner and best friend Andrew Luck. For a team that lost Dallas Clark and Jacob Tamme they definitely needed some help at that position.
35 Baltimore Trade Icon Courtney Upshaw DE Alabama 6' 2" 262
DraftSite's comments:Baltimore isn't sure if Sergio Kindle is going to come back, and with Jarrett Johnson leaving for San Diego, they needed some more help at outside linebacker. Courtney Upshaw would have been a great pick at the original spot in the first round, and is even better now considering they picked up a bunch of additional draft picks to do so.
36 Denver Trade Icon Derek Wolfe DT Cincinnati 6' 5" 298
DraftSite's comments:Despite not measuring up ideally by NFL standards, Wolfe was one of the more productive defensive tackles in college this year at Cincinnati and should be able to step in right away for Denver at a position in which they need a lot of help.
37 Cleveland Mitchell Schwartz OT Cal 6' 5" 310
DraftSite's comments:They probably could have gotten Mitchell Schwartz later in the draft, but it's hard to predict when it comes to tackles since they often go early. He solidifies a strong Cleveland offensive line with Joe Thomas and Alex Mack.
38 Jacksonville Andre Branch DE Clemson 6' 5" 260
DraftSite's comments:Great pick for a Jacksonville team who desperately needed some pass rush. Branch had over 10 sacks and 17 tfls this year at Clemson, proving he knows how to get in the backfield.
39 LA Rams Trade Icon Janoris Jenkins CB North Alabama 5' 11" 186
DraftSite's comments:Janoris Jenkins has a ton of talent and easily could have been a first round pick. For a team that needed a lot of secondary help going into this year, the combination of him and newly signed Cortland Finnegan, instantly give them one of the better secondaries in the league.
40 Carolina Amini Silatolu OG Midwestern State 6' 3" 325
DraftSite's comments:Carolina has needed a standout guard for a while, and Silatolu gives them that. While he played at a small school and some wonder if he is too raw, the Panthers have good players surrounding him with Jordan Gross, Ryan Kalil, and Jeff Otah
41 Buffalo Cordy Glenn OG Georgia 6' 5" 330
DraftSite's comments:THe Bills definitely needed a tackle after losing Demetress Bell, and while Glenn might be looked at as a guard, he could play tackle just as easily and be successful at it.
42 Miami Jonathan Martin* OT Stanford 6' 6" 282
DraftSite's comments:The Dolphins desperately needed a right tackle, and they got one of the best in college football last year. He's an athletic player who will anchor their line with Jake Long for years to come.
43 NY Jets Trade Icon Stephen Hill* WR Georgia Tech 6' 5" 206
DraftSite's comments:Unbelievably athletic, but also very raw. He's 6'5" though and the Jets might try to use him like they did with Plaxico Burress. The Jets definitely needed some more wide receivers and Stephen Hill gives them a great prospect and weapon for whichever quarterback starts.
44 Kansas City Jeff Allen OG Illinois 6' 5" 305
DraftSite's comments:Jeff Allen completes Kansas City's offensive line with Branden Albert and Eric Winston at tackle, and Jon Asamoah and Rodney Hudson inside. While he played tackle most of his illustrious career at Illinois, he'll likely play guard or could switch in and out of tackle when needed.
45 Chicago Trade Icon Alshon Jeffery* WR South Carolina 6' 3" 234
DraftSite's comments:Huge wide receiver, who along with Brandon Marshall makes their need at wide receiver disappear. He can grab any ball out of the air, and with a good quarterback should be able to do it much more consistently.
46 Philadelphia Mychal Kendricks OLB Cal 6' 0" 241
DraftSite's comments:Kendricks is a very athletic outside linebacker and very productive player at Cal, who will be a great fit next to DeMeco Ryans in the middle of Philadelphia's improving defense.
47 Seattle Trade Icon Bobby Wagner ILB Utah State 6' 1" 230
DraftSite's comments:Wagner had a great senior bowl and was one of the best linebackers in college this year, so he'll provide a Seattle team in need of help at linebacker, a stable middle defender.
48 New England Trade Icon Tavon Wilson S Illinois 6' 0" 205
DraftSite's comments:The Patriots probably could have waited to get Wilson, or could have done what they normally do and trade down, but clearly they didn't want to wait. Wilson was a great safety net at Illinois and provides New England with a player in the back part of their defense to put next to Patrick Chung and replace Brandon Meriweather.
49 LA Chargers Kendall Reyes DT Connecticut 6' 4" 295
DraftSite's comments:Reyes gives San Diego more ammo for their defensive line along with last year's pick Corey Liuget, previous 1st round pick Luis Castillo, and some of their big nose tackles like Antonio Garay and Cam Thomas. Might not be an immediate place for him in the starting lineup, but he should be able to make an impact every time he's in the game.
50 LA Rams Trade Icon Isaiah Pead RB Cincinnati 5' 10" 193
DraftSite's comments:Great running back at Cincinnati and showed his skill-set at the Senior Bowl running well and returning kicks with ease.
51 Green Bay Trade Icon Jerel Worthy* DT Michigan State 6' 3" 292
DraftSite's comments:One of the more dominant players in the Big Ten this year playing defensive tackle at Michigan State. Green Bay's defensive line will be a little crowded but could fit in nicely next to B.J. Raji and opposite either Mike Neal, C.J. Wilson, or Jarius Wynn.
52 Tennessee Zach Brown OLB UNC 6' 2" 225
DraftSite's comments:The fastest linebacker in the draft, now gives Tennessee one of the best future middle-3 linebackers in the league with last year's rookie Colin McCarthy and Akeem Ayers.
53 Cincinnati Devon Still DT Penn State 6' 5" 311
DraftSite's comments:Cincinnati now boasts arguably the best and youngest defensive tackle rotations in the league along with Domata Peko and Geno Atkins. Still was one of the bright spots in a difficult year for Penn State getting behind the line constantly, talling 17 tackles for a loss as a senior.
54 Detroit Ryan Broyles WR Oklahoma 5' 11" 178
DraftSite's comments:Once again the Lions pick on the wrong side of the ball with needs at cornerback. Had it not been for the injuries this year at Oklahoma, Broyles could have been a first round pick based on his productivity alone. He along with Calvin Johnson will catch every ball thrown in the air.
55 Atlanta Peter Konz* OC Wisconsin 6' 5" 315
DraftSite's comments:Atlanta needed a center for the future with Todd McClure getting up there in age, and they just got the best center prospect in the draft.
56 Pittsburgh Mike Adams OT Ohio State 6' 8" 300
DraftSite's comments:There were thoughts that he could have been picked by Pittsburgh in the first round, but instead fell to them in the 2nd round and along with David DeCastro and Maurkice Pouncey, gives them one of the best young center-to-left part of the line in the league.
57 Denver Brock Osweiler* QB Arizona State 6' 8" 245
DraftSite's comments:Denver needed a future quarterback and a potential starter in case Peyton Manning gets injured again. Osweiler has a great arm and big frame, and will be able to learn from another relatively immobile quarterback.
58 Tampa Bay Trade Icon Lavonte David ILB Nebraska 6' 1" 211
DraftSite's comments:David is a tackling machine at Nebraska, and gives Tampa Bay a strong middle linebacking crew along with Quincy Black, Mason Foster, and Dekoda Watson.
New OrleansForfeit
59 Philadelphia Trade Icon Vinny Curry DE Marshall 6' 5" 242
DraftSite's comments:Curry has been one of the most productive defensive ends in all of college football the last two years. The Eagles might not have needed a defensive end with Trent Cole, Jason Babin, and Brandon Graham already there, but Curry will provide a little extra help on the line and on special teams.
60 Baltimore Kelechi Osemele OG Iowa State 6' 5" 328
DraftSite's comments:Could play guard to replace Ben Grubbs or even outside at tackle instead of Bryant McKinnie. He showed great versatility and length at Iowa State and will be a great player to move around the offensive line for the Ravens.
61 San Francisco LaMichael James* RB Oregon 5' 9" 180
DraftSite's comments:LaMichael James was one of the most explosive players in the league last year, and will be used primarily next year for kick returns, given that they already have Frank Gore, another undersized running back Kendall Hunter, and newly signed Brandon Jacobs.
62 Green Bay Trade Icon Casey Hayward CB Vanderbilt 6' 0" 185
DraftSite's comments:Many thought Hayward was going to be targeted by New England, which is possibly why Green Bay traded up for him. He was a ball hawk at Vanderbilt consistently grabbing interceptions and gives Green Bay well-needed depth at cornerback behind Charles Woodson.
63 NY Giants Rueben Randle* WR LSU 6' 3" 201
DraftSite's comments:Randle could have been a first round pick if he stayed in school another year. Big, tall receiver who gives the Giants one more great threat to catch the ball along with Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz.
