Round 2:

33. Houston Texans – Jimmy Garoppolo – QB – Eastern Illinois
Commish’s Comments:  Garoppolo has all of the tools. He just needs time to develop. Bill O’Brien might like the project. ROUND 3

34. Washington Redskins Morgan Moses – OT – Virginia
Commish’s Comments:  The Redskins tried to get Donald Penn as their right tackle. If they get Desean Jackson, right tackle becomes their main need on offense. Moses is smart and athletic. He might end up going higher than this. ROUND 3

35. Cleveland Browns – Dee Ford – OLB – Auburn
Commish’s Comments: OLB isn’t a huge need for the Browns, but new coach Mike Pettine is a defensive-minded guy who can never have enough pass rushers.  ROUND 3

36. Oakland Raiders – Derek Carr – QB – Fresno St.
Commish’s Comments:  Since the Texans couldn’t possibly draft Carr, the Raiders get the guy they want falling into their lap here in round 2. Carr can learn behind Schaub. ROUND 3

37. Atlanta Falcons – Jeremiah Attaochu – DE/OLB – Georgia Tech
Commish’s Comments:  The local product is an excellent fit in the 3-4 and is currently rising up boards. ROUND 3

38. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Marqise Lee – WR – USC
Commish’s Comments: In a deep draft, great players always fall. Lee doesn’t have the elite straight-line speed, but he is extremely quick and can be a huge threat at any point of the field. ROUND 3

39. Jacksonville Jaguars – Kyle Van Noy – DE/OLB – BYU
Commish’s Comments:  Gus Bradley needs a pass rusher after getting his quarterback in the 1st round. ROUND 3

40. Minnesota Vikings – Zach Mettenberger – QB – LSU
Commish’s Comments: Mettenberger might be a top 10 talent that slips due to the torn ACL he had at the end of the 2013 season. His strong arm and experience in Cam Cameron’s offense makes him an ideal fit in Norv Turner’s offense. Cam Cameron used to be Norv Turner’s offensive coordinator. ROUND 3

41. Buffalo Bills – Allen Robinson – WR – Penn St.  
Commish’s Comments: The Bills need to get their young QB a big target at WR. Robinson might normally be a 1st round pick, but in this draft, he is as solid of a 2nd round selection as they come. ROUND 3

42. Tennessee Titans – Carlos Hyde – RB – Ohio St. 
Commish’s Comments: The Titans need a back they can lean on with Chris Johnson likely playing elsewhere in 2014. Hyde is a power back who can carry the ball 20-25 times a game. ROUND 3

43. New York Giants – Ra’Shede Hageman – DT/DE – Minnesota 
Commish’s Comments: The Giants always seem to like the physical freaks along their defensive line. Hageman is that freak who presents himself as a boom or bust prospect. ROUND 3

44. St. Louis Rams – Jimmie Ward – SS – Northern Illinois
Commish’s Comments: Ward is a hard-hitting strong safety who brings a presence to the back of the Rams defense. ROUND 3

45. Detroit Lions – Jason Verrett – CB – TCU
Commish’s Comments: Verrett lacks ideal size, but he is a ball hawk and thrives in man coverage. ROUND 3

46. Pittsburgh Steelers – Cyrus Kouandjio – OT – Alabama 
Commish’s Comments: Kouandjio has all of the physical talent, but struggles some in pass protection. ROUND 3

47. Dallas Cowboys – Brandon Thomas – OG – Clemson
Commish’s Comments: Thomas is a nasty guard who plays with aggression. He’d fit nicely next to Travis Frederick. ROUND 3

48. Baltimore Ravens – Antonio Richardson – OT – Tennessee 
Commish’s Comments: Richardson is a prototypical right tackle and a great replacement for Michael Oher. ROUND 3

49. New York Jets – Jaylen Watkins – CB – Florida 
Commish’s Comments:  The Jets need a CB and haven’t addressed that this off-season. Watkins would be a nice addition opposite Dee Milliner. ROUND 3

50. Miami Dolphins – Joel Bitonio – OT – Nevada
Commish’s Comments:  The Dolphins get another nasty offensive lineman in their revamping of the mess from last year. Bitonio has long arms and can play either guard or tackle. ROUND 3

51. Chicago Bears – Scott Crichton – DE – Oregon St.
Commish’s Comments: Crichton presents himself as a pass rushing threat and best player available at a position the Bears need to improve at. ROUND 3

52. Arizona Cardinals – AJ McCarron – QB – Alabama   
Commish’s Comments: 
McCarron is not a favorite of mine, but I’d fully understand this pick. He can learn behind Palmer and fits nicely into Bruce Arians’ offense. ROUND 3

53. Green Bay Packers – Deone Bucannon – S – Washington St. 
Commish’s Comments: Bucannon is a big hitter in the secondary, but can also play the centerfield position well. ROUND 3

54. Philadelphia Eagles – Jordan Matthews – WR – Vanderbilt 
Commish’s Comments: If Chip Kelly wants to get bigger at receiver, Matthews would be an ideal pick here. ROUND 3

55. Cincinnati Bengals –Paul Richardson – WR – Colorado 
Commish’s Comments: The Bengals love measurables. Richardson is one of the fastest players in this draft and has been compared, as a player, to Desean Jackson. Nice replacement for Andrew Hawkins. ROUND 3

56. San Francisco 49ers (via KC) – Stephon Tuitt – DE – Notre Dame
Commish’s Comments:  Tuitt brings some youth and athleticism to the 49ers defensive line. ROUND 3

57. San Diego Chargers – Trevor Reilly – DE/OLB – Utah
Commish’s Comments: Reilly has had some injury issues, but his blend of size, speed, and athleticism is as good as anyone in this draft. ROUND 3

58. New Orleans Saints – Louchiez Purifoy – CB – Florida 
Commish’s Comments: The Saints could use a corner opposite of Kennan Lewis. Purifoy has 1st round talent, but has slipped a little after an average pro day workout. ROUND 3

59. Indianapolis Colts – Gabe Jackson – OG – Mississippi St. 
Commish’s Comments: Jackson is a big mauler as a guard. He’s a good fit in Pep Hamilton’s offense if they want to get the run game going. ROUND 3

60. Carolina Panthers – Davonte Adams – WR – Fresno St.
Commish’s Comments: Adams doesn’t have electric speed, but he made some big plays for Derek Carr and knows how to go up and get the ball. ROUND 3

61. San Francisco 49ers – Keith McGill – CB/S – Utah 
Commish’s Comments: McGill is a big defensive back who can start at CB, but also transition to safety if it doesn’t work at corner. ROUND 3

62. New England Patriots – Austin Seferian-Jenkins – TE – Washington 
Commish’s Comments: A couple of character concerns and injury concerns have Seferian-Jenkins slip a little bit in this deep draft, but why wouldn’t the Patriots want to pair him up with Gronk? ROUND 3

63. Denver Broncos – Kareem Martin – DE – North Carolina
Commish’s Comments: Martin has the look of a dominant defensive end. He is still raw and needs to put it all together. ROUND 3

64. Seattle Seahawks – Stanley Jean-Baptiste – CB – Nebraska
Commish’s Comments: Of course the Seahawks would want the biggest defensive back in the draft. ROUND 3
