Live Blog: NFL Draft, Round Two

There are a lot of gems on the board. Let's see if I can make it through both rounds without interruption like last night. The Patriots have one second round pick and two third round picks tonight. There is a chance the Patriots could move up if they target a specific player.

Game on from Chicago as we continue the 2015 Draft with Rounds Two and Three.

33. Giants (acquired in trade with Titans)- Landon Collins, S, Alabama

Great move by the Giants as they trade up to acquire a player who should have been selected last night. The Giants defense needs to get younger and they start that mission in this draft.

34. Buccaneers- Donovan Smith, T Penn State

The Bucs have serious protection issues, and if you want Winston to succeed, you need to keep him upright. Smith may have been projected to go later, but from a talent perspective, it's all there. It's up to him how good he'll be.

35. Oakland Raiders- Mario Edwards Jr., DE, Florida State

Flexible along the defensive line and he is very good at stopping the run, but he needs some serious work on his pass rushing abilities. He's a little light too, so he might have to put some muscle on.

36. Jaguars- T.J. Yeldon, RB, Alabama

The Jags probably could have waited and found a running back late, but they roll the dice on the talented Yeldon. He has great quickness for his side and may dominate in a one-cut system.

37. Jets- Devin Smith, WR, Ohio State

Excellent pick by the Jets; he is a perfect compliment to Brandon Marshall, Jace Amaro and the Jets running game.

38. Redskins- Preston Smith, LB, Mississippi State

Washington has some holes to fill on both sides of the ball, and this pick will do just that. Preston Smith is a beast and will add an element of toughness to the Redskin defense.

39. Bears- Eddie Goldman, NT, Florida State

The Bears angered me when they drafted a wide receiver over Danny Shelton, but they get lucky and land Eddie Goldman, a beast nose tackle out of FSU. Good pick, but they got lucky.

40. Titans- Dorial Green-Beckham, WR, Oklahoma

The Titans roll the dice on maybe the most talented receiver in the draft. DGB had multiple off the field issues that pushed him out of the first round.

41. Panthers (via trade with Rams)- Devin Funchess, WR/TE, Michigan

Funchess moved to wide receiver as a senior, but he isn't fast enough and he'll end up playing tight end in the NFL. He's an excellent player and will give Cam Newton a big target to look for. Good pick, but he's miscast as a wide out.

42. Falcons- Jalen Collins, CB, LSU

The Falcons land a gem that could have easily been selected in the first round. There were questions about the fact he didn't start every game, but he wasn't playing at some small school, he was at LSU, a team that ALWAYS has great defensive backs. Strong pick for the Falcons, a team in need of outside corners.

43. Texans (via trade with Browns)- Benardrick McKinney, Mississippi State

True inside linebacker that will help the Texans right away, and he'll flourish with Watt, Wilfork, and Clowney in front of him. Bill O'Brien continues to build his defense and Romeo Crennel has more toys to deploy.

44. Saints- Hau'oli Kikaha, LB, Washington

The Saints draft one of the best pass rushers in the country. Kikaha is not a workout warrior, he is simply an awesome football player. He did have an injury that scared teams off, but this could be a steal.

45. Vikings- Erik Kendricks, ILB, UCLA

The Vikings land Butkus Award winner Eric Kendricks, who in my opinion is the best inside linebacker in the draft. The Vikings have had two solid picks and that roster is starting to see some serious improvement.

46. 49ers- Jaquiski Tartt, S, Samford

Tartt comes from a small school but he brings big talent to the 49ers. Tartt makes plays, and after being ravaged in the offseason, the Niners need some young players to step up in '15.

47. Eagles (via trade with Dolphins)- Eric Rowe, CB, Utah

Another cornerback that was graded as a first round pick but slipped into the second round. The Eagles are super aggressive when they see what they want, and Rowe was clearly targeted before the draft. Chip Kelly gets his man.

48. Chargers- Denzel Perryman, ILB, Miami (FL)

San Diego lands an inside linebacker that could be starting for the next decade. He's tough, smart, quick and is just a great football player. Strong pick for the Chargers.

49. Chiefs- Mitch Morse, T, Missouri

The Chiefs land themselves a lineman that can play every position. Andy Reid will most likely use him at center, but again, he can play anywhere and he'll be fine.

50. Bills- Ronald Darby, CB, Florida State

Rex loves his cornerbacks, but I'm not a fan of this pick. Decent athlete, but he gets burnt A LOT.

51. Browns- Nate Orchard, LB, Utah

The Browns continue to add to their defense with olb Nate Orchard. The Ute had a great career and was one of the better pass rushers in the country. He's still improving, something NFL teams are always looking for.

52. Dolphins- Jordan Phillips, DT, Oklahoma

This is a steal for the Dolphins; Phillips has some issues with stamina, but he just needs NFL coaching. Playing next to Suh should push him to be more consistent.

53. Bengals- Jake Fisher, T, Oregon

This second round is loaded with possible first year starters, and Fisher is in that category. Fisher is a strong pass and run blocker and should succeed in the NFL.

54. Lions- Ameer Abdullah, RB, Nebraska

Small but productive running back out of Nebraska will give the Lions the weapon they wanted in Reggie Bush, a guy that can run, catch, and return kicks. The Lions offense picks up another weapon.

55. Ravens- Maxx Williams, TE, Minnesota

The best true tight end in the draft finally goes off the board to a team that desperately needs a tight end. Joe Flacco is going to like Williams. Williams family has a long history in the NFL.

56. Steelers- Senquez Golson, CB, Ole Miss

The Steelers have had some retirements of starting defensive backs, and they go out and find themselves a ball-hawking cornerback in Golson. The Steelers have had a strong start to the 2015 draft.

57. Rams- Rob Havenstein- T, Wisconsin

The Wisconsin grinder takes his talent to St. Louis to block for Todd Gurley and Nick Foles. Havenstein is another player that won't look good at the combine but will whoop people on Sunday.

58. Cardinals- Markus Golden, DE, Missouri

Good pass rusher in college, but he may not have the size to play three downs. As a situational pass rusher, he could contribute.

59. Broncos- Ty Sambrailo, T, Colorado State

The Broncos are always looking for good linemen, and they find a super athletic tackle in Sambrailo. He can play inside too but he may just end up as a left tackle.

60. Cowboys- Randy Gregory, OLB, Nebraska

The Cowboys may have just drafted the steal of the 2015 draft. Gregory, talent-wise, is the best pass rusher in the draft, but his off the field issues could derail his career.

61. Buccaneers- Ali Marpet, G, Hobart College

I'd be lying if I said I knew anything about him, but this shows that the Bucs are serious about fixing their offensive line.

62. Packers- Quinten Rollins, CB, Miami (OH)

The Packers find a cornerback that was athletic enough to play both basketball while at Miami of Ohio. Rollins only played one year of football, but he showed the same talent as he possessed in basketball. His story is similar to Nate Robinson, a great college basketball player who played football for a year and dominated.

63. Seahawks- Frank Clark, DT, Michigan

The Seahawks take a gamble on a player that has had major issues off the field. If they don't reign Clark in, he could become a huge problem.

64. Patriots- Jordan Richards, S, Stanford

Pat Chung better be on high alert because Richards is the type of player that could very easily steal his job. Surprising but good pick for New England, a team in need d-backs that can cover.
