NFL Draft Day 2: The Best of The Rest

New, comments

The creme of the crop has been sifted through and extracted, yet Jeff Fisher and Les Snead are left with no lack of options on day two of the NFL Draft.

After the first round, most of us were left breathless, leaning up against a wall, yelling for a break and a water bottle. But the show must go one. The first day of the draft saw talent laden players such as Tavon Austin, Chance Warmack, and Jonathan Cooper find their NFL homes, but surprise picks also played a large role in shaping round one. Players such as Travis Frederick and Justin Pugh weren't forecasted to land in the first round and subsequently forced players who were predicted to be day one picks into day two. Day two is brimming with talent.

Here is some of the best available talent:

Safeties:

  • Jonathan Cyprien
  • Baccari Rambo
  • D.J. Swearenger
  • Jamoris Slaughter
  • Shamarko Thomas
  • T.J. McDonald
  • Josh Evans
  • Earl Wolff
  • Phillip THomas

Guards:

  • Larry Warford
  • Hugh Thornton
  • Dallas Thomas
  • Brian Winters
  • Barrett Jones

Running backs:

  • Giovanni Bernard
  • Montee Ball
  • Eddie Lacy
  • Marcus Lattimore
  • Christine Michael

Wide Receivers:

  • Justin Hunter
  • Keenan Allen
  • Stedman Bailey
  • Quinton Patton
  • Robert Woods
  • Da'Rick Rogers

Defensive Tackles:

  • Kawaan Short
  • Akeem Spence
  • Bennie Logan

While the Rams don't have a selection in the 2nd, the wealth of talent left ensures the Rams are sitting pretty with two selections in the 3rd. Also, expect a run on corners and wide receivers in the second, leaving the Rams to choose from a deep safety class.....Oh, and Geno Smith is still out there...for whatever that's worth.

Who do you foresee falling to the Rams in the third?
