Inevitably, there is first round talent that falls into the second round every year. Team needs, character, and value at positions dictate a draft that doesn’t always make sense. Going into round two Friday, there is an abundance of talent left on the board. Some thoughts…
The Rams are set up to have a solid round two with three picks in the top 13. They addressed the need on the defensive line in the first round. They can still address other needs with potential first round talent with the likes of Cordy Glenn or Jonathan Martin on the offensive line, Stephen Hill, Rueben Randle, or Alshon Jeffery at WR, or take a gamble on Janoris Jenkins at CB. Lavonte David could fill a need at linebacker as well. Things are good in St. Louis.
Courtney Upshaw found himself on the wrong end of a number of 3-4 pass rushers selected in the first round. He will provide a huge value to someone in the second. Could it be the Colts who are moving to a 3-4?
Jerel Worthy was tied to the Broncos in many first round mock drafts. Is it possible they still land him in the second? Devon Still is another available possibility.
Those in need of help on the offensive line can cash in on the above mentioned Cordy Glenn or Jonathan Martin, as well as Peter Konz, Amini Silatolu, Jeff Allen, and Bobby Massey.
Andre Branch and Vinny Currey provide value for those still looking for pass rushers.
While he was border line first round material due to blocking, Coby Fleener is still available for someone looking to upgrade at Tight End, or copy the Patriots two TE attack.
