33. Arizona Cardinals – Byron Murphy (CB/Washington)

Adam Schefter tweeted this morning that Murphy is the “heavy” favorite to be taken with the top pick tonight unless Arizona trades it.

34. Indianapolis Colts – Greedy Williams (CB/LSU)

Indianapolis traded out of the first round and it may not have hurt them as only one cornerback was selected. Indianapolis’ secondary needs an upgrade, but a defensive lineman could be selected here too.

35. Oakland Raiders – Drew Lock (QB/Missouri)

The Raiders have Derek Carr, but he is a byproduct of an old regime who Jon Gruden could look to move on from.

36. San Francisco 49ers – D.K. Metcalf (WR/Ole Miss)

The 49ers were tied to Odell Beckham Jr. and Antonio Brown this offseason, but failed to land either player.

37. Seattle Seahawks – Cody Ford (G/OT/Oklahoma)

Seattle addressed the defensive line with their top pick, now the look to bolster the other side of the trenches. Offensive line has been an issue for the Seahawks in recent years.

38. Jacksonville Jaguars – Jawaan Taylor (OT/Florida)

A guy many thought the Jaguars would take at No. 7 falls to them in Round Two. They look brilliant if this happens and they get Josh Allen.

39. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Nasir Adderly (S/Delaware)

Tampa continues to address the defense. An upgrade at safety is needed and the Bucs should have a couple of options here, especially if the Seahawks pass on a safety.

40. Buffalo Bills – A.J. Brown (WR/Ole Miss)

Another talented player falls to Buffalo. This time, they land a much-needed weapon for Josh Allen.

41. Denver Broncos – Erik McCoy (G/C/Texas A&M)

A replacement for Matt Paradis, who signed with Carolina. If Drew Lock is still available, his fall could end.

42. Cincinnati Bengals – D’Andre Walker (LB/Georgia)

Cincinnati wanted either Devin Bush or Devin White in the opening round, but the Steelers snuck up and stole White right under their noses.

43. Detroit Lions – Elgton Jenkins (G/C/Mississippi State)

A pass rusher could be taken too, but Jenkins helps fill the void left by T.J. Lang’s retirement.

44. Green Bay Packers – Irv Smith Jr. (TE/Alabama)

Green Bay focused on the defense in the first round, so I think they’ll shift to the offense in the second. Jimmy Graham isn’t the player he once was.

45. Los Angeles Rams – Greg Little (OT/Ole Miss)

Much like the Eagles, the Rams have a talented, but old blindside protector in Andrew Whitworth. Little could be groomed as the heir.

46. Indianapolis Colts – Chauncey Gardner-Johnson (S/CB/Florida)

Addressing the secondary continues for the Colts. Gardner-Johnson could function in a hybrid role similar to Tyrann Matthieu.

47. Carolina Panthers – Dalton Riner (OT/G/Kansas State)

Carolina needs to address Cam Newton’s poor protection at some point. Rock-Ya Sin could be selected here too.

48. Miami Dolphins – Will Grier (QB/West Virginia)

Miami could surrender this pick to acquire Josh Rosen, but either way, Ryan Fitzpatrick is not a long-term solution for the Dolphins.

49. Cleveland Browns – Dre’Mont Jones (DT/Ohio State)

Stopping the run was the Achilles heel of Cleveland last year and they haven’t done much to address the issue so far.

50. Minnesota Vikings – Jaylon Ferguson (EDGE/Louisiana Tech)

Eversen Griffen is talented, but going through some personal issues that could affect his long-term plans with the team.

51. Tennessee Titans – Jachai Polite (EDGE/Florida)

Derrick Morgan is a freena gent and Brian Orakpo retired, leaving Tennessee thin on the edge. Cameron Wake was signed, but at age 37 he doesn’t have much left in the tank.

52. Denver Broncos – Rock-Ya Sin (CB/Temple)

Chris Harris has demanded a trade. Even if he does stay, cornerback has been a position of need for the Broncos.

53. Philadelphia Eagles – David Montgomery (RB/Iowa State)

Philadelphia acquired Jordan Howard via trade, but he lacks explosion and offers nothing in the passing game.

54. Houston Texans – Damien Harris (RB/Alabama)

Lamar Miller hasn’t lived up to expectations while D’Onta Foreman comes with medical concerns, so don’t be surprised if Houston looks for a running back today.

55. Houston Texans – Trayvon Mullen (CB/Clemson)

Secondary always seems to be a position of need for the Texans.

56. New England Patriots – Ryan Finley (QB/N.C. State)

New England needs to find a successor to Tom Brady, who turns 42 this summer.

57. Philadelphia Eagles – Germaine Pratt (LB/N.C. State)

Inside linebacker woes plagued the Eagles last year and Mychal Kendricks was never truly replaced.

58. Dallas Cowboys – Taylor Rapp (S/Washington)

After missing out on Earl Thomas, the Cowboys get their upgrade at safety in the draft.

59. Indianapolis Colts – Khalen Saunders (DT/Western Illinois)

The Colts continue to build up the defense, addressing the trenches with this pick.

60. Los Angeles Chargers – Amani Oruwariye (CB/Penn State)

Casey Hayward are Desmond King are a solid 1-2 combo, but the Chargers need to replace the recently departed and oft-injured Jason Verrett.

61. Kansas City Chiefs – Juan Thornhill (S/Virginia)

There’s no secret that the weakness to the Chiefs in 2018 was their secondary and unfortunately, not much has been done to address this.

62. New Orleans Saints – Parris Campbell (WR/Ohio State)

Michael Thomas is a stud, but the Saints have failed to get stellar production aside from him.

63. Kansas City Chiefs – Myles Gaskin (RB/Washington)

Kareem Hunt was released last year and I don’t trust Carlos Hyde/Damien Williams to be able to shoulder the load for the Chiefs.

64. New England Patriots – Mack Wilson (LB/Alabama)

New England has needed to find someone of quality to line up next to Dont’a Hightower since Jamie Collins was shipped to Cleveland in 2016.
