Pick
Team Player name
Pos
School Notes
33
Jacksonville Jaguars Matt Elam
SS
Florida Many options for the Jags here, but strong safety is a must.
34
San Francisco 49ers (from Chiefs) Eric Reid
FS
LSU Craig Dahl should see competition for the starting job, and Reid has what it takes to win it outright.
35
Philadelphia Eagles Margus Hunt
DE
Southern Methodist The Eagles need help at defensive end in their new 3-4 alignment.
36
Detroit Lions D.J. Fluker
OT
Alabama Solidifying the OL is a must, and this move would allow Riley Reiff to play left tackle.
37
Cincinnati Bengals (from Raiders) Jonathan Cyprien
SS
Florida International Cincy has to do something at strong safety. Cyprien has a bright future.
38
Arizona Cardinals Zach Ertz
TE
Stanford Ertz could upgrade the position. Indy added two tight ends early last year when Bruce Arians was calling plays.
39
Cleveland Browns Josh Gordon
WR
Baylor 2012 Supplemental Selection
40
New York Jets Menelik Watson
OT
Florida State The Jets have a lot of holes, and it may be tough to pass on Matt Barkley here, but RT is a big must.
41
Buffalo Bills Quinton Patton
WR
Louisiana Tech Buffalo should look to add a wide receiver on Day 2, and Patton gives them something to work with in 2013.
42
Tennessee Titans Arthur Brown
OLB
Kansas State Brown is a solid pick here and gives the Titans depth, if not something more.
43
Miami Dolphins Terron Armstead
OT
Arkansas-Pine Bluff This would allow Jonathan Martin to play right tackle and give the team young bookends.
44
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sam Montgomery
DE
LSU You can never have too many young pass rushers, and Montgomery is a beast against the run. Bonus.
45
Carolina Panthers Sylvester Williams
DT
North Carolina The Panthers get a borderline first-rounder in the middle of the second to improve their run defense.
46
New Orleans Saints Skipped Selection
--
-- Bounty Gate penalty
47
San Diego Chargers Manti Te'o
ILB
Notre Dame Te'o can help in pass coverage and battle for a starting inside job with Jonas Mouton.
48
St. Louis Rams Johnthan Banks
CB
Mississippi State They could to interior D-line here, too. CB gets the nod due to available defensive line depth.
49
Dallas Cowboys Phillip Thomas
FS
Fresno State Montee Ball could be a sneaky pick here, but Thomas is the smarter selection.
50
Pittsburgh Steelers Montee Ball
RB
Wisconsin Speaking of Ball ... Pittsburgh needs to have a reliable running game, but WR could be this pick.
51
New York Giants Alex Okafor
DE
Texas Not a sexy pick or a flashy pass rusher, but Okafor is more than serviceable.
52
Chicago Bears Matt Barkley
QB
Southern California Jay Cutler's deal is up after the year, and let's face it, he has been just average.
53
Washington Redskins Jamar Taylor
CB
Boise State Cornerback depth is a must, and Washington has little of it.
54
Minnesota Vikings Jesse Williams
DT
Alabama Three picks in the first 54 allows Minnesota to build depth along the defensive line.
55
Cincinnati Bengals Giovani Bernard
RB
North Carolina Cincinnati has to find a complementary back to spell the Law Firm. Bernard is lightning in a bottle.
56
Miami Dolphins (from Colts) Khaseem Greene
OLB
Rutgers Miami was super busy in the offseason, which leaves depth/competition options at this point.
57
Green Bay Packers Barrett Jones
C
Alabama Green Bay could stand an upgrade at the position.
58
Seattle Seahawks Larry Warford
OG
Kentucky A great team never can have too much offensive line depth.
59
Houston Texans Ryan Nassib
QB
Syracuse Houston could go a number of ways, although landing Matt Schaub's successor would be smart.
60
Denver Broncos Le'Veon Bell
RB
Michigan State Bell would be a nice replacement if Denver parts ways with Willis McGahee or Knowshon Moreno. Ronnie Hillman can't do it alone.
61
New England Patriots David Amerson
CB
North Carolina State New England can afford a semi-luxury pick at this point of the draft.
62
Atlanta Falcons D.J. Hayden
CB
Houston The Falcons are in dire need of secondary depth.
63
San Francisco 49ers EJ Manuel
QB
Florida State Manuel is too good to pass on when your backups are Colt McCoy and Scott Tolzien.
64
Baltimore Ravens Travis Frederick
C
Wisconsin Can battle for the starting job with 2012 fourth-rounder Gino Gradkowski.
