AFC East:

Buffalo Bills — 41. Robert Woods WR, USC — 46. Kiko Alonso LB, Oregon — 78. Marquise Goodwin WR, Texas

B+ — Woods will be a great, consistent weapon for Manuel. Goodwin gives them a deep threat and a return man while Alonso is a dynamic LB.

Miami Dolphins — 54. Jamar Taylor CB, Boise State — 77. Dallas Thomas OT/OG, Tennessee — 93. Will Davis CB, Utah State

B — Jamar Taylor was a steal here and Thomas can possibly play 4 to 5 positions on the line. Davis is a strong man to man CB.

New England Patriots — 52. Jamie Collins DE/OLB, Southern Miss — 59. Aaron Dobson WR, Marshall — 83. Logan Ryan CB, Rutgers — 91. Duron Harmon S, Rutgers

B — Collins is a dynamic pass rusher and Dobson is a high potential WR. Ryan is a solid while Harmon was the “HUH?” pick the Patriots always have.

New York Jets — 39. Geno Smith QB, WVU — 72. Brian Winters OG, Kent State

A- — Geno Smith was a steal at pick 39 and Winters is a good OG prospect who can play either guard spot and possible tackle.

AFC South:

Houston Texans — 57. D.J. Swearinger S, South Carolina — 89. Brennan Williams OT, UNC — 95. Sam Montgomery DE/OLB, LSU

B+ — Swearinger fills a need opposite Reed and will take over for him in a couple years. Williams could start at RT in a year or 2 and Montgomery is a late 1st round talent but an UDFA brain.

Indianapolis Colts — 86. Hugh Thorton OG, Illinois

C+ — Fills a need but I thought there were better guard prospects available.

Jacksonville Jaguars — 33. Jonathan Cyprien S, FIU — 64. Dwayne Gratz CB, Connecticut

A — Cyprien was a great pick and will start from day 1. Gratz can come in a start immediately, though I thought there were better CB prospects available.

Tennessee Titans — 34. Justin Hunter WR, Tennessee — 70. Blidi Wreh-Wilson CB, Connecticut — 97. Zaviar Gooden OLB, Missouri

A+ — Possibly the best day 2 draft. Hunter would have been a top 10 pick before the injury and plays a lot like Randy Moss. BWW is a long corner who i had with a mid 2nd grade. Gooden is an athletic OLB who has the potential to be great. Gooden and Brown are the most athletic OLB duo in the NFL.

AFC North:

Baltimore Ravens — 56. Arthur Brown LB, Kansas State — 94. Brandon Williams NT, Missouri Southern State

A- — Brown had 1st round talent, but at his size, I think he is better suited for a 4-3. Terrance Cody didn’t work out, so Williams is his replacement.

Cincinnati Bengals — 37. Giovani Bernard RB, UNC — 53. Margus Hunt DE, SMU — 84. Shawn Williams S, Georgia

A- — Bernard is the speed back Cincy needed. He can also catch the ball extremely well. Hunt is a physical specimen who has only played football for 5 years. If he develops is a home run pick. Williams is athletic, smart and a great leader. Zimmers prototypical safety.

Cleveland Browns — 68. Leon McFadden CB, San Diego State

C — McFadden is a small CB who has good athletic ability. Has good ST ability, but I thought there were better CB prospects available.

Pittsburgh Steelers — 48. LeVeon Bell RB, Michigan State — Markus Wheaton WR, Oregon State

C+ — Bells is a big back who is has some elusiveness. However he likes to run more east/west than north/south. Wheaton is a good value at this point and could replace Mike Wallace.

AFC West:

Denver Broncos — 58. Montee Ball RB, Wisconsin — 90. Kayvon Webster CB, South Florida

D- — Montee Ball has a lot of tread on his tires as well as some injury concerns with concussions. With Lacy and Franklin available, I don’t understand the pick. Webster was drafted a few rounds too early.

Kansas City Chiefs — 63. Travis Kelce TE, Cincinnati — 96. Knile Davis RB, Arkansas

C- — Kelce is a high risk, high reward player. He is a great all around TE who has had some drug issues. Knile Davis might have gone undrafted if the Chiefs didn’t take him. He put on a show at the combine though.

Oakland Raiders — 42. Menelik Watson OT, FSU — 66. Sio Moore OLB, Connecticut

A — Watson was being talked about as a mid-late 1st round possibility. He fills a huge need for Oakland. Sio Moore is also a great OLB prospect who can play either side.

San Diego Chargers — 38. Manti Te’o LB, Notre Dame — 76. Keenan Allen WR, Cal

A — Te’o had 1st round talent and is a good fit in the middle for SD. Allen is an absolute steal if his knee completely heals. He might have been the best WR in the draft.
