Round 2
Round 2 /

Florida State. Josh Sweat. 33. player. 53. Sweat is a raw, yet explosive, athlete. He would give Cleveland another dynamic pass rusher in addition to Myles Garrett to develop on the edge. — Dan. Edge Rusher

Running Back. USC. Ronald Jones. 34. player. 31. The Giants have been trying different guys at RB for years. It’s time to get a true stud at the position. — Kyle

Oklahoma State. James Washington. 35. player. 53. The Browns could use a reliable receiving target on offense. Washington also has a knack for making big plays. He’d be interesting to pair with first overall pick, Sam Darnold. — Dan. Wide Receiver

46. Indianapolis needs help on the offensive line to keep Luck upright once he’s able to return. Okorafor does not get a lot of attention, but has the potential to develop into a very good starter at tackle in the league. — Kyle. Offensive Tackle. Western Michigan. Chukwuma Okorafor. 36. player

Georgia. Sony Michel. 37. player. 30. Michel is an explosive runner with big play potential. He’s this year’s Alvin Kamara, and he could fulfill a similar role in the Jets offense. — Dan. Running Back

48. This is a pure “best player available” pick for the Bucs. Alexander would have easily been a first round pick if his season hadn’t been disrupted by a nagging injury. He’s also a good punt returner. — Kyle. Cornerback. Louisville. Jaire Alexander. 38. player

player. 57. The Bears take another chance on bendy, athletic edge rusher. Built similarly to Leonard Floyd, Key could easily make the transition to outside linebacker in their scheme. He’s a top-20 talent who will fall to the second round because of character red flags. — Dan. Edge Rusher. LSU. Arden Key. 39

player. 45. Denver would love to just reload on defense, but they need to commit to giving their rookie QB the help he needs along the offensive line. Miller is already generating a lot more buzz coming out of the combine. His athletic testing was outstanding. — Kyle. Offensive Tackle. UCLA. Kolton Miller. 40

41. player. 28. Oakland finds their nickel cornerback in Stewart. The North Carolina product is a tough defensive back with excellent football instincts. He’ll be an effective slot defender in the NFL. — Dan. Cornerback. North Carolina. MJ Stewart

Malik Jefferson. 42. player. 59. The Dolphins could consider a top LB in the first round, but here they get arguably one of the most athletic LBs in the draft. — Kyle. Linebacker. Texas
