Vincent chimes in this afternoon with his thoughts as to who will will go where, tonight in round 2.Rnd 2 Pick 33: Jaguars- Robert Woods WR USC. Rather than draft a QB, Jacksonville needs to draft good offensive players.Rnd2 Pick 34: 49ers- Jamar Taylor CB Boise State. 49ers considered Revis, considered Charles Woodson. Cheaper and better to draft at this point.Rnd 2 Pick 35: Eagles- Jesse Williams DT Alabama. Great interior run defender to anchor the d-line.Rnd2 Pick 36: Lions – Menelik Watson OT Florida State. Got pass rusher in 1st round, and starting tackle in 2nd.Rnd 2 Pick 37: Bengals – Eddie Lacy RB Alabama. Provides stability in running game. Upgrade over Green-Ellis.Rnd 2 Pick 38: Cardinals – Matt Barkley QB USC. Cards get legit QB to groom behind Palmer experiment. No tackle worth taking here.Rnd 2 Pick 39: Jets – Geno Smith QB WV. Other positions of need, but if he’s still available Jets take him over Nassib. He’s a top 10 talent, and will cause further QB controversy.Rnd 2 Pick 40: Titans – Cornellius Carredine DE Florida State. NFL ready defensive end.Rnd 2 Pick 41: Bills – Terron Armstead OT Arkansas Pinebluff. The workout wonder finds home on Bills line.Rnd 2 Pick 42: Raiders – Ryan Nassib QB Syracuse. A year to groom him, second year to compete as starter.Rnd 2 Pick 43: Bucs – Kevin Minter ILB LSU. Will be athletic tackling machine.Rnd 2 Pick 44: Panthers – David Amerson NC State. Tall CB to play either CB or FS (both positions of need). In state, developing, and hard working.Rnd 2 Pick 45: Chargers- Monti Te’o ILB Notre Dame. Te’o will fit in well in a laid back city. He can focus on football and get back to being a good middle linebacker.Rnd 2 Pick 46: Bills – Arthur Brown OLB Kansas State. Further help to the linebacking corps. Could move indside.Rnd 2 Pick 47: Cowboys – Jonathan Cyprien SS Florida. Fills a need, also a quality player. Could start.Rnd 2 Pick 48: Steelers – Keenan Allen WR Cal. Solid, but not spectacular WR. More Hines Ward than Mike Wallace.Rnd 2 Pick 49: Giants – Johnthan Banks CB Mississippi State. Not a lot of needs, he could see playing time.Rnd 2 Pick 50: Bears- Markus Wheaton WR Oregon State. Fills Johnny Knox’s shoes. Complimentary player to Alshon Jeffrey, and Brandon Marshall.Rnd 2 Pick 51: Redskins- Phillip Thomas FS Fresno State. Good FS, active, and caused 13 turnovers in 2012.Rnd 2 Pick 52: Patriots – Justin Hunter WR Tennessee. Tall, fast vertical threat, to play Randy Moss opposite Amendola’s Wes Welker. 6’4″ with 4.3 speed.Rnd 2 Pick 53: Bengals – DJ Swearinger S South Carolina. Need to improve the safety play, and remove Taylor Mays.Rnd 2 Pick 54: Dolphins- Dwayne Gratz CB UConn. Someone to fill a starting CB position.Rnd 2 Pick 55: Packers- Montee Ball RB Wisconsin. Fan favorite, fills need. A reach, but still makes sense.Rnd 2 Pick 56: Seahawks – Johnathan Hankins DT Ohio State. Fills a need, and a late 1st round type talent.Rnd 2 Pick 57: Texans – Margus Hunt DE SMU. Can fill the Mario Williams role.Rnd 2 Pick 58: Broncos – Sam Montgomery DE/LB LSU. Can fit in the front 7 rotation at several spots.Rnd 2 Pick 59: Patriots – Quinton Patton WR Louisiana Tech. Provides the always pass friendly Pats offense with more weapons. More polished route runner, aggressive, competitive, and could be the steal  of the draft.Rnd 2 Pick 60: Falcons- Zach Ertz TE Stanford. Falcons bring back Tony Gonzalez, but also get his replacement for 2014.Rnd 2 Pick 61: 49ers – John Jenkins DT Georgia. The biggest of the mamouth DT’s. Will eat up space for 10 years.Rnd 2 Pick 62: Ravens – There is no player to replace Ray Lewis. Best player available is Alex Okafor DE Texas. Another rush OLB to rotate in and eventually take over.
