Round 2 (part 1) of 2 Rounds

33. (2.1) DEN: Stanley Jean-Baptiste, CB, Nebraska
Denver can trade back for an additional mid round pick and still solidify the back end of their secondary.
34. (2.2) WAS: Cyrus Kouandjio, OT, Alabama
Cyrus Kouandjio would not only provide additional protection for RG3, but a right tackle of his size would open some serious holes in the running game, making him an ideal fit with the Redskins. Speaking of which, let's get the Redskins to change their name to the Pigskins. It's not racist, it's a football reference, it pays homage to Washington's fan base of the 1980's, and the team could still call themselves The Skins. On top of that, a new hog related logo could help Daniel Snyder sell a boatload of merchandise...Seems like a win-win situation if you ask me.
35. (2.3) CLE: Xavier Su'a-Filo, G/T, UCLA
After addressing WR and QB in the 1st Round, this is purely a value pick, although it substantially improves the offensive line of the Browns, much to the same extent that taking a T in the 1st Round would have.
36. (2.4) OAK: Tom Savage, QB, Pittsburgh
Tom Savage was well traveled for a variety of reasons in his college career, but he has ideal NFL size and arm strength. His nomad ways make him a perfect Raider.
37. (2.5) ATL: Jeremiah Attaochu, DE/OLB, Georgia Tech
Assuming Atlanta elects to go with a LT in the 1st Round, a raw but talented local product like Jeremiah Attaochu of Georgia Tech could be a steal when it comes to finding a bargain when it comes to a much needed pass rusher.
38. (2.6) TB: Kyle Van Noy, OLB, BYU
With the Bucs moving back to a Tampa-2 defense under new defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier, they need to find LB's who can better fit that system. Kyle Van Noy of BYU would be an immediate improvement at the SAM.
39. (2.7) JAX: Allen Robinson, WR, Penn State
With Justin Blackmon's future in Jacksonville, and the NFL for that matter, still up in the air, the Jags need to look for another go-to WR. Allen Robinson fills that bill. The only reason he's still available in the 2nd Round is due to inconsistent QB play and a deep WR class.
40. (2.8) MIN: Zach Mettenberger, QB, LSU
While he is coming off of a late season knee injury, Zack Mettenberger is ahead of schedule on his rehab and is already throwing for scouts. With a strong accurate arm and high football I.Q., Mettenberger is an ideal fit to ultimately take over in Norv Turner's new offense.
41. (2.9) BUF: Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State*
After giving E.J. Manuel some additional protection up front, the Bills could look to give him a big target to ultimately develop into the go to WR they have been lacking. While Kelvin Benjamin is raw in terms of his route running, blocking and focus, there is no questioning that he is one of the most physically gifted WR's in this year's draft class.
42. (2.10) TEN: Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, Eastern Illinois
It looks like the Titans are interested in giving themselves an insurance option in the even that Jake Locker cannot return from the dreaded lisfranc foot injury. In fact, with Tennessee electing to decline Locker's fifth year option, they may be looking for more than just insurance.
43. (2.11) NYG: Scott Crichton, DE, Oregon State*
Selecting Zack Martin in the 1st Round would help the G-men rebuild their offensive line. An underrated DE like Scott Crichton in the 2nd Round would help re-fortify their once fierce pass rush, which has taken some hits due to age and free agency over the past few years.
44. (2.12) STL: Davante Adams, WR, Fresno State*
If the Rams can address LT, S and either a WR or a CB with their first three picks, I think they'd be pretty happy. With the top of this draft being extremely deep at WR, the value at that position trumps reaching for a CB.
45. (2.13) DET: Deone Bucannon, S, Washington State
In James Ihedigbo and Glover Quin, the Lions have two projected starters who are better off playing SS in an era when most teams are looking for two faster players who can play FS. Not only does Deone Buccanon of Oregon State have both range and a nose for the ball, but he has fantastic character as well.
46. (2.14) PIT: Louis Nix III, DT, Notre Dame*
The Steelers would be wise to pass on a talent like Louis Nix, III in the 1st Round despite his talent simply because there are very few teams in the market for a true NT at the top of this year's draft.
47. (2.15) DAL: Dominique Easley, DE, Florida
Dallas could look at DE, S, WLB, or address their OL with their pick in the 2nd Round. If they can address DE in the 1st Round, a 3-Technique DT with 1st Round talent like Dominique Easley of Florida would be worth the gamble in the 2nd Round even though he's already undergone surgery on both of his knees.
48. (2.16) BAL: Jimmie Ward, S, Northern Illinois
A hybrid like Jimmie Ward who can play FS would allow Matt Elam to move to his more natural position at SS.
