2013 NFL Draft: Round 2 Open Thread (Picks 46-62)


Well, the New York Jets think their quarterback problems are solved. I'm happy for them. I am glad the last 16 quarterbacks they have selected in the first two round have worked out. ...

The stars seem to be aligning for John Elway and the Denver Broncos to select another defensive player at cornerback, but if Eddie Lacy continues to fall, do you think he might be a value pick at that point?

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 3 (90)

2013 NFL Draft - Round 2
33 JAC 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 TEN 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 PHI 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 DET 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 CIN 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 SD 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 NYJ 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 SF 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 BUF 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 OAK 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 TB 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 CAR 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 ARI 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 BUF Kiko Alonso, LB Oregon Kiko Alonzo in the second round for the Bills is a bit of a reach, but he has a lot of beef in front of him and should help out a Buffalo defense who desperately needed help in the second level of their defense. ~ Christopher Hart
47 DAL Gavin Escobar, TE SDSU Gavin Escobar has been a rising prospect for months. Pairing him with Jason Witten gives the Cowboys a double threat at tight end which will give teams headaches. ~ Christopher Hart
48 PIT Le'Veon Bell, RB Michigan State Le'Veon Bell going to the Steelers hurts. He is a perfect fit for the physical nature of their team and should immediately come in and start. Fantastic value for a team rumored to be in the need for a back after Rashard Mendenhall's departure. ~ Christopher Hart
49 NYG Johnathan Hankins, DT Ohio State Giants add another solid pick to that D-Line. Hankins will stuff the middle of that line and let Tuck and JPP attack QB's off the ends. Solid pick by the Giants. ~ Scotty Payne
50 CHI Jon Bostic, ILB Florida With the loss of Urlacher the Bears need a replacement at LB. They did add some free agents to compete, but Bostic could be the long term answer for the Bears defense. ~ Scotty Payne
51 WAS David Amerson, CB North Carolina State Amerson is a solid pickup for the the Skins. Can play safety or corner. Great ball skills, but is a boom or bust type prospect. The skins secondary could use him though. ~ Scotty Payne
52 NE Jamie Collins, DE/OLB Southern Miss Collins is your perfect New England Patriot type player. Very versatile and a uber athletic edge rusher. Great pick. ~ Scotty Payne
53 CIN Margus Hunt, DE SMU Hunt is a athletically gifted man. He is 26 though and is very raw when it comes to football. He's a developmental pick for the Bengals, but has great upside. ~ Scotty Payne
54 MIA Jamar Taylor, CB Boise State Taylor is a solid corner for the Dolphins. They lost Sean Smith and Taylor would be a nice replacement for him. Solid pick up. ~ Scotty Payne
55 SF Vance McDonald, TE Rice Vance McDonald replaces Delanie Walker on the Niners offense. Niners continue to get deeper and deeper. ~ Scotty Payne
56 BAL Arthur Brown, ILB Kansas State Ravens look to fill the void at ILB left by Ray Lewis and Danelle Ellerby. Brown is a solid prospect. ~ Mike Gomez
57 HOU D.J. Swearinger, CB South Carolina A big safety who can tackle and play special teams. Needs to improve in coverage however. ~ Scotty Payne
58 DEN Montee Ball, RB Wisconsin Love this this pick. Montee Ball in a Peyton Manning offense is awesome. Good size back and a good value at 58. Great pick. Bye bye Willis McGahee. ~ Scotty Payne
C$^%F$%%NO NO F%^$%&^* ~ Mike Gomez
Something has got to stop John Fox from punting on 4th and 1, here is the back that will ensure that he gets four yards when it is 3rd and 3. ~ Ian Henson
59 NE Aaron Dobson, WR Marshall Aaron Dobson give the Patriots some much needed help at receiver. ~ Scotty Payne
60 ATL Robert Alford, CB SE Louisana Robert Alford is a solid pick up for the Falcons. Another solid addition to their secondary. ~ Scotty Payne
61 GB Eddie Lacy, RB Alabama Packers finally select the free falling Lacy. Lacy is a solid downhill runner who does have some injury concerns. Aaron Rodgers must be happy to finally have a solid running game. ~ Scotty Payne
62 SEA Christine Michael, RB Texas A&M Christine Michael is my favorite back in this class. Great runner for the Seahawks. Has some off the field issues, could be a potential steal for the Seahawks. ~ Scotty Payne
