Day two of the NFL draft brought us nine picks from the four AFC West teams in rounds two and three. Here are the picks from each team.
35th pick - Mario Edwards Jr. (DE) Florida State
Edwards Jr. is a Defensive End from Florida State. Raiders fans who weren't happy about their team choosing WR Amari Cooper when Leonard Williams was still on the board should be pleased with a solid defensive pick.
Edwards certainly has a fan in CBS Sports Jason La Confora. Confora wrote earlier this month about Edwards potentially being an under-the-radar first round pick.
68th pick - Clive Walford (TE) Miami (FL)
ESPN's draft analysts loved this pick. I'm guessing Derek Carr is also pretty happy about it.
New Raiders TE Clive Walford averaged 3.26 Yards Per Route Run, No. 1 among draft-eligible tight ends— Pro Football Focus (@PFF) May 2, 2015
48th pick - Denzel Perryman (ILB) Miami (FL)
Perryman was 2013 and 2014 First Team All-ACC and was credited with 100 tackles in each of his last two seasons. He is a bit undersized, but Perryman's talent and effort appears to more than make up for that.
Charger fans: When Ted Thompson/Highsmith in GB love a player, it's a good sign. And they loved Denzel Perryman, as many in league did.— Peter King (@SI_PeterKing) May 2, 2015
83rd pick - Craig Mager (CB) Texas State
chargers talked about wanting to get faster. they do it drafting CB Craig Mager in the third round out of Texas State.— Alex Flanagan (@Alex_Flanagan) May 2, 2015
49th pick - Mitch Morse (C) Missouri
The Chiefs are no longer without an answer at center. Morse can play center or guard making it that much more likely he'll see some playing time sooner than later with the Chiefs.
Mitch Morse one of the more underrated players in this draft. He will play in the NFL a long time and can legitimately play all 5 OL spots— Dane Brugler (@dpbrugler) May 2, 2015
76th pick - Chris Conley (WR) Georgia
The Chiefs traded up for the 76th pick (from the 80th) to grab Conley. Conley looks like a solid pick for the Chiefs. And there's this (which I personally think is awesome) . . .
98th pick - Steven Nelson (CB) Oregon State
With their 3rd round compensatory pick the Chiefs selected a player on the defensive side after two offensive picks.

59th pick - Ty Sambrailo (OT) Colorado State
The Broncos not surprisingly picked an offensive linemen sooner than later. Sambrailo was on the 2014 Second Team All Mountain-West and had a strong showing in the Senior Bowl. Hopefully Sambrailo can do as good of a job protecting Peyton Manning as he did for CSU's QB Garret Grayson.
.@johnelway on Ty Sambrailo: "He really fits our system ... he's going to compete for a starting job at right tackle."— Andrew Mason (@MaseDenver) May 2, 2015
For an offensive line that is going through a massive restructuring it seems wise to get guys like Sambrilo who can play multiple positions. Sambrailo seems ready to go wherever he is needed.
Ty Sambrailo "My versaility is a big reason I was picked up. I want to compete at whatever position they want."— Troy Renck (@TroyRenck) May 2, 2015
92nd pick - Jeff Heurmann (TE) Ohio State
Bradley Roby will have a fellow Buckeye on the team next season. Heurmann dealt with an injury most of last season which resulted in him being more of a blocker than a receiver.
