Welcome to Day 2 of the 2013 NFL Draft! After an exciting first day, in which John Elway and the Denver Broncos selected the best player available, Bronco fans are looking forward to a more sexy pick at a skill position.
Could it be running back? Of course, you all know I am still holding out hope that Manti Te'o somehow, someway makes his way to Denver for the next 10 years. However, the big boards and pundits all think Te'o will be long gone before the 58th pick comes up.
NOTE: Keep refreshing this page after each pick as I will be updating this thread live with reactions from our own MHR Staffers. Go Broncos!

Broncos Next Pick: Round 2 (58)
|2013 NFL Draft - Round 2|
|33||Johnathan Cyprien, DB||Florida International||Jags get a very good safety here. Gus Bradley adds his enforcer to a defense that has many holes. Solid pick here for the Jags. ~ Scotty Payne|
|34||Justin Hunter, WR||Tennessee||Hunter is a talented kid. Tall at 6'4, smaller frame and does need to work on his hands. Has great upside though. Gives Jake Locker another weapon. ~ Scotty Payne|
|35||Zach Ertz, TE||Stanford||Ertz is a nice athletic Tight End for Chip Kelley. Plays more like a WR. Very good pick for the Eagles. ~ Scotty Payne|
|36||Darius Slay, CB||Mississippi State||Darius Slay has been a fast riser up draft boards, and obviously the Lions felt he was better than his teammate Johnathan Banks. He has some injury concerns, but played more consistently than his higher touted counterpart this year. ~ Christopher Hart|
|37||Giovani Bernard, RB||North Carolina||Giovani Bernard is a solid pickup for the Bengals offense. He lacks top end speed, but has solid hustle. He's great in the passing game. Gives Andy Dalton another weapon. Solid draft so far for the Bengals. ~ Scotty Payne|
|38||Manti Te'o, ILB||Notre Dame||The Chargers finally get their heir to Junior Seau and you Bronco fans who hated on Te'o are going to rue this day for the next ten years. My reaction? F#$%$%&^%$&$% ~ Tim Lynch|
|39||Geno Smith, QB||West Virginia||The Jets get some QB competition for Sanchez in Geno Smith. Jets fans are cheering and somewhere Mark Sanchez is upset. ~ Scotty Payne|
|40||Tank Carradine, DE||Florida State||Nooo! The Rich get richer. Tank when healthy is a great edge rusher. Pair him with Aldon Smith and Niners have a pretty good young pass rush. ~ Scotty Payne|
|41||Robert Woods, WR||USC||Robert Woods is a solid possession receiver who runs good routes and has excellent hands. Should be a great complimentary receiver to Calvin Johnson, Jr. and give the Lions more explosiveness in their offensive in a competitive division. ~ Christopher Hart|
|42||Menelik Watson, OT||Florida State||Menelik Watson is a very raw football player with extreme upside. He is a prototypical NFL RT, but has the athleticism to man down LT. Unfortunately, there is a lot to pick up mentally for him to become a successful NFL player. I do not expect him to become a good contributor for a while because he routinely misses pass blocking assignments and gets confused blocking in space at the second level. ~ Chris Hart|
|43||Johnthan Banks, CB||Mississippi State||Banks is a solid pickup for the Bucs. Pair him with Revis and they have two very good ball hawks. He has good size, doesn't have the speed you would like, but has long arms and good ball skills. Very nice pick by the Bucs. ~ Scotty Payne|
|44||Kwann Short, DT||Purdue||Short and Star give the Panthers a great duo in the middle. They have improved their interior D-Line greatly with the last two picks. ~ Scotty Payne|
|45||Kevin Minter, ILB||LSU||Kevin Minter is the best run stuffing ILB in this draft. He will bring a physical presence to the Cardinals and has three-down potential. ~ Christopher Hart|
|46||Kiko Alonso, LB||Oregon|
