ensure they get the top QB on their board.

Jabaal Sheard, OLB Pittsburgh
The Bills got their interior force yesterday and are lucky to have the
explosive, competitive Sheard still on the board at #34.
35. Cincinnati Bengals
Da’Quan Bowers, DE Clemson
Marvin Lewis knows time is running out for him in Cincinnati, so the threat
of a shortened career for Bowers is not a deterrent at this point in round
36. Denver Broncos
Stephen Paea, DT Oregon State
The Broncos need to beef up their interior, and Paea is a perfect fit for
their new 4-3 defense.

Kyle Rudolph, TE Notre Dame
The Cardinals take the athletic, versatile Rudolph who is the best player
left on their board.
39. Tennessee Titans
Kenrick Ellis, DT Hampton

Christian Ballard, DE Iowa
Ballard is a perfect fit at DE for the Cowboys’ 3-4 defense.
41. Washington Redskins

WR is clearly at the top of their list.
42. Houston Texans
Akeem Ayers, OLB UCLA
After taking DE JJ Watt yesterday the Texans are looking to find a pass
rushing OLB for their 3-4 defense.
43. Minnesota Vikings
Marvin Austin, DT North Carolina
The Vikings hope they can get Austin to play up to his potential on the
interior, which is considerable.
44. Detroit Lions
|To the chagrin of some fans, Detroit didn't nab a
cornerback in the first round. But Dowling could be awaiting them in the
Ras-I Dowling, CB Virginia
Detroit continues to upgrade their defense by filling their biggest need with
one of the best players left on everyone’s board, not just their own.

corner on their board.
46. Denver Broncos
Curtis Brown, CB Texas

47. St. Louis Rams
Leonard Hankerson, WR Miami
Hankerson is an underrated WR that is quicker than advertised and is the
perfect weapon for Sam Bradford.
48. New England Patriots
Brooks Reed, OLB Arizona
Some projected the Pats to take Reed with their second pick of the first
round but are able to get much better value by waiting until this point in round
49. Washington Redskins
Rodney Hudson, OL Florida State
Hudson is the perfect athlete on the interior for Washington’s zone blocking
50. San Diego Chargers
Jason Pinkston, OT Pittsburgh

52. New York Giants
Stefan Wisniewski, OC Penn State

53. Indianapolis Colts
Mikel LeShoure, RB Illinois
LeShoure is an every down back that will contribute immediately in Indy.
54. Philadelphia Eagles
Andy Dalton, QB TCU

business, so it makes sense that they would look to develop a new young talent
behind Michael Vick.
55. Kansas City Chiefs
Justin Houston, OLB Georgia
The Chiefs take another gamble with the talented but wildly inconsistent
56. New England Patriots
Ryan Williams, RB Virginia Tech
The best RB in the draft falls all the way to the back end of the 2nd round,
and the Pats waste no time taking him.
57. Seattle Seahawks
Ryan Mallett, QB Arkansas
Pete Carroll might just be the perfect coach to get the most out of the much
58. Baltimore Ravens
Jerrel Jernigan, WR Troy
The Ravens desperately need an explosive playmaker that can stretch the field
and Jernigan is a tremendous value at the end of round 2.
59. Cleveland Browns
Marcus Gilbert, OT Florida
The Browns are looking to for an upgrade at right tackle and believe they
have their man here in round 2.
60. New England Patriots
Rahim Moore, SAF UCLA
Brandon Merriweather’s off the field concerns force New England’s hand here
at the end of round 2.
61. San Diego Chargers
Dontay Moch, LB Nevada
Moch has the elite speed teams covet and could fit inside or outside in San
Diego’s linebacking corps.
62. Chicago Bears
Drake Nevis, DT LSU
The Bears are lucky to Nevis still on the board, who will be a perfect
3-technique in their defense.
63. Pittsburgh Steelers
Ben Ijalana, OL Villanova
Ijalana has the natural ability to start at a number of positions along
Pittsburgh’s offensive line.
64. Green Bay Packers
Jacquizz Rodgers, RB Oregon State

dynamic playmaker with the ball in his hand.
