Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to day two of the 2015 NFL Draft! All throughout tonight, May 1st, 2015, we will be tracking each draft pick and providing instant analysis as it happens. Mile High Report staff contributors and NFL Draft hounds, Scotty Payne and Christopher Hart, will be providing the instant pick analysis for each team throughout the Day 2 event. Refresh this post and comment below.

What do you think John Elway and the Denver Broncos will do on Day 2? Yesterday the Broncos traded up for linebacker Shane Ray. Day 2 could also get interesting as two quarterback prospects the Broncos are looking at are projected to be third-round picks as well


New York Giants via
the Tennessee Titans

Landon Collins SS Alabama

Good pick for the Giants who really need safety help.- Scotty Payne

Landon Collins provides an impact player at the safety position for the New York Giants who could use a couple of them. They get a player with a high first round grade here at the start of round two - Christopher Hart

Tampa Bay Bucs
Donovan Smith OT Penn State

Donovan Smith has been a late riser up the draft boards. Not the most athletic tackle in the draft, but will provide Jameis Winston some protection.  Likely will play RT immediately as a rookie for Tampa Bay. - Christopher Hart

The Bucs need tackle help, and Smith will help protect Jameis Winston - Scotty Payne

Oakland Raiders
Mario Edwards Jr. DE Florida State

Mario Edwards is a versatile defender who can play inside and outside, but underachieved in his career at Florida State.   If someone can get the most out of him, Jack Del Rio could. - Christopher Hart

Edwards will be the Derek Wolfe/Malik Jackson for the Oakland Raiders. He has a high upside. Not a bad pick for the Raiders. - Scotty Payne

Jacksonville Jaguars
T.J. Yeldon RB Alabama

Blake Bortles needed a running back to help him out and the Jaguars take TJ Yeldon.  He isn't the best back on the board in my opinion, lacks a second gear, but can get the tough yards and has good vision.   Tough SEC tested player. - Christopher Hart

I would have picked a few other backs before Yeldon, but this give Bortles a tough back to hand the ball of too. - Scotty Payne

New York Jets
Devin Smith WR Ohio State

The Jets end up getting a burner to go along side Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.   Smith is a versatile player who likely gets put in the slot immediately for the Green Machine. - Hart

I like this pick for the Jets. It gives Geno a deep threat - Scotty Payne

38 Preston Smith LB Mississippi State Preston Smith is a versatile defensive lineman who can play inside and out. Tremendous value for Washington. - Christopher Hart

I really like this pick for Washington. One of my favorite players in this draft.
Chicago Bears
Eddie Goldman NT Florida State

Eddie Goldman to the Bears is a fantastic selection, should be able anchor their new defense. - Christopher Hart

Goldman is a big man and adds size to the middle of the Bears defense - Scotty Payne

Tennessee Titans via the New York Giants
Dorial Green-Beckham WR Missouri

Dorial Green-Beckham is one of the most gifted wide receivers in this class, but character concerns are plentiful.  He could become a top receiver in the NFL if he keeps his head on straight, he has everything else you can't teach. - Christopher Hart

This dude is a freak - Scotty Payne

Carolina Panthers via the St. Louis Rams
Devin Funchess WR/TE Michigan State

The Panthers select Devin Funchess, who I compared to Kelvin Benjamin in my Top Day 2 players available article.   Cam Newton finally has legitimate targets at WR after last years pathetic display. -Christopher Hart

The Panthers give Cam Newton another big target - Scotty Payne

Atlanta Falcons
Jalen Collins DB LSU

Jalen Collins is a selection who has elite measurables and quality play tape, but major character concerns.- Christopher Hart

Nice upgrade for the Falcons. He fits the Seattle mold - Scotty Payne

Houston Texans via the Cleveland Browns
Benardrick McKinney ILB Mississippi State

Benardrick McKinney is one of the best linebackers in this class and would have been a great pick for Denver.   Instead, he is in Houston where he will take command of their interior for the oft-injured Brian Cushing. - Christopher Hart

I wanted the Broncos to select McKinney. Good pick up for the Texans

New Orleans Saints
Hau'oli Kikaha OLB Washington

Kikaha has some of the best pass rush moves in this class based on his martial arts background, but has significant medical concerns. - Christopher Hart

Talented pass rusher, but injury concerns worry me -Scotty Payne

Minnesota Vikings
Eric Kendricks LB UCLA

Kendricks is a phenomenal fit for the Vikings who need help at linebacker with an aging Chad Greenway.   Waynes and Kendricks give the Vikings two stud defenders, perhaps the best at their positions in the draft.  Well done, Hornheads. - Christopher Hart

I like this pick for the Vikings. Great value. - Scotty Payne

San Francisco 49ers
Jaquiski Tartt S Samford

Tartt has the build of a strong safety, but has single-high potential as a FS in the NFL.   He is the first FCS player selected in the 2015 draft.   An under the radar, late riser. - Christopher Hart

He's a big thumper who will add some attitude back to the Niners defense

Philadelphia Eagles via the Miami Dolphins
Eric Rowe CB/S Utah

Eric Rowe is a great selection for the Eagles.   It will be interesting to see if they value him at CB or FS.   He is a better FS than CB and displayed that in his earliest years with the Utes. - Christopher Hart

Great pick for the Eagles! - Scotty

San Diego Chargers
Denzel Perryman ILB Miami

Perryman to the Chargers gives them a formidable force in the middle.  Excellent value. - Christopher Hart

is a big hitter. Good add for the Chargers. - Scotty

Kansas City Chiefs
Mitch Morse C Missouri

Mitch Morse is a versatile lineman who can come in and play OG/C for the Chiefs who need help at both spots.  He too was a rising prospect and should compete for a starting position immediately. - Christopher Hart

solid add by the Chiefs here who are without a center. - Scotty Payne

50 PHI
Buffalo Bills
Ronald Darby CB Florida State

Darby is a quality corner, who a lot of scouts had rated higher than his teammate.   Can contribute in the nickel packages immediately.  With the AFC East beefing up on WR's, the Bills needed a coverman. Christopher Hart

Good cover guy. Nice Pick. - Scotty Payne

Cleveland Browns via Houston Texans
Nate Orchard OLB Utah Nate Orchard to the Browns gives them another quality selection.  They have been absolutely phenomenal in this draft.  Fantastic pick! - Christopher Hart
Miami Dolphins via Eagles
Jordan Phillips DT Oklahoma Jordan Phillips has Pro-Bowl caliber talent, but has medical concerns with his back.   Miami was in need of some interior help on their defensive line and they get good value with Phillips here if he stays healthy. - Christopher Hart
Cincinnati Bengals
Jake Fisher OT/G Oregon

Jake Fisher is a fantastic value for the Bengals at this point in time, who many believed could have been their first round pick to begin with. - Christopher Hart

I wanted the Broncos to get him. Crap. - Scotty

Detroit Lions
Ameer Abdullah RB Nebraska Ameer Abdullah has been cited as receiving the highest character grade several scouts have ever given and he is a helluva playmaker too.  Helps the Lions offense out. - Christopher Hart
Via the Arizona Cardinals
Maxx Wiliams TE Minnesota Maxx Williams is a great pick for the Ravens who needed a starter once Owen Daniels joined the Broncos.   Another great Ozzie Newsome selection.- Christopher Hart
Pittsburgh Steelers
Senquez Golson CB Ole Miss Senquez Golson has been flying up draft boards.   Compares to MIA CB Brent Grimes.  Small, compact, but a fierce competitor. - Chris Topher Hart
St. Louis Rams
Robert Havenstein OT Wisconsin Havenstein to the Rams gives them a huge bodied OT who can start at right tackle immediately.- Christopher Hart
Arizona Cardinals via the Baltimore Ravens
Markus Golden DE/OLB Missouri Golden is a player that some scouts felt was the better half out of the Ray and Golden tandem.   With pass rushers flying off the board, Arizona nabs their man. - Hart
Denver Broncos
Ty Sambrailo OL Colorado State Sambrailo is probably a third round player, but he can play inside or outside for the Broncos.  I had thought for a long time he would be a selection for Denver and they go ahead and nab him here.   It fits a need and with OL flying off the boards, they did well to get him. - Christopher Hart
Dallas Cowboys
Randy Gregory DE/OLB Nebraska Randy Gregory to the Cowboys. They definitely needed some help at edge rusher.   They are getting a Top 15 talent with character concerns int he second. - Christopher Hart
Tampa Bay Bucs via the Colts
Ali Marpet OL Hobart I love this guy. Great pick by the Bucs who traded up for him. -Scotty Payne
Green Bay Packers
Quinten Collins CB/S Miami(OH) Adds depth to the Green Bay Packers secondary. - Scotty Payne
63 BAL
Seattle Seahawks
Frank Clark OLB Michigan Frank Clark to Seattle had major character concerns, some teams had him removed from boards completely for drug use and poor character.   He was dismissed from Michigan.   Huge reach and Seattle's first pick. He has upside though. talented edge rusher who comes with some character concerns - Christopher Hart
New England Patriots
Jordan Richards S Stanford Belichick adds depth at safety - Scotty Payne
Indianapolis Colts via the Tampa Bay Bucs
D'Joun Smith CB Florida Alantic Colts add depth to their secondary
Tennessee Titans
Jeremiah Poutasi T/G Utah A big big man who will shift inside to guard
Jacksonville Jaguars
A.J. Cann G South Carolina A good guard who will help protect Blake Bortles
Oakland Raiders
Clive Walford TE Miami Another nice weapon for quarterback Derek Carr
69 BAL
Seattle Seahawks via the Washington Redkins
Tyler Lockett WR KSU Another small speedy weapon for Russell Wilson
Houston Texans via the New York Jets
Jaelen Strong WR ASU A receiver to help replace Andre Johnson
Chicago Bears
Hroniss Grasu C Oregon An athletic center who I liked for the Broncos.
St. Louis Rams
Jamon Brown OT Louisville He's a big boy. Probably a better guard.
Atlanta Falcons
Tevin Coleman RB Indiana An explosive running back who can be their lead back
New York Giants
Owa Odighizuwa DE UCLA There goes my guy. He's going to be good.
New Orleans Saints
Garrett Grayson QB Colorado State Well there's one quarterback off the board. I liked Grayson.
Kansas City Chiefs
Chris Conley WR Georgia This guy is fast. Had a great combine.
Cleveland Browns
Duke Johnson RB Miami Duke is an electrifying back who will fit nicely in the Cleveland backfield.
New Orleans Saints
P.J. Williams CB Florida State A smooth corner who has some character concerns.
San Francisco 49ers
Eli Harold OLB Virginia A pass rusher who needs to do better in the run game.
Detriot Lions
Alex Carter DB Stanford Adds depth to the Lions secondary
81 PHI
Buffalo Bills
John Miller OG Louisville Bills need help at guard, and Miller is an intriguing prospect
New York Jets via the Houston Texans
Lorenzo Mauldin OLB Louisville Jets add a edge rusher to their defense. A good pick for them.
San Diego Chargers
Craig Mager CB Texas St. A raw press corner who adds depth to the Chargers secondary
Philadelphia Eagles
Jordan Hicks OLB Texas A linebacker who fits the Eagles defense very well.
Cincinnati Bengals
Tyler Kroft TE Rutgers A balanced tight end who will block and be a receiving weapon for Andy Dalton
Arizona Cardinals
David Johnson RB Northern Iowa A big back who compliments Andre Ellington very well.
Pittsburgh Steelers
Sammie Coates WR Auburns A speed guy who can take the top off a defense
Minnesota Vikings
Danielle Hunter DE/OLB LSU A raw athletic pass rusher who needs to learn the game
St. Louis Rams
Sean Mannion QB Oregon State Im not a fan of Mannion, but he'll backup Nick Foles
Baltimore Ravens
Carl Davis DT Iowa A very talented player who has some off the field issues
Dallas Cowboys
Chaz Green OT Florida Dallas adds some depth at OT
Denver Broncos
Jeff Heuerman TE Ohio State A athletic tight end who can block well. A kubiak type tight end
Indianapolis Colts
Henry Anderson DE Stanford A tough 3-4 defensive end who helps the Colts defensive line
Green Bay Packers
Ty Montgomery WR Stanford Another eceiver for Aaron Rodgers
Washington Redskins
Matt Jones RB Florida A big running back who will replace Roy Helu
Cleveland Browns
Xaxier Cooper DT Washington State Adding some much needed depth at defensive tackle
New England Patriots
Genero Grissom DE Oklahoma A versatile guy who fits New England very well
Kansas City Chiefs
Steven Nelson CB Oregon St. A tough corner who adds more depth to the Chiefs secondary
Cincinnati Bengals
Paul Dawson LB TCU Great player, but character is the question and dindt test well.
