2014 NFL Draft: Day Two Live Updates

5

The 2014 NFL Draft continues with rounds two and three underway this evening.

  • The Lions traded up to the 40th pick (Seahawks pick) to snag OLB Kyle Van Noy. Van Noy was a pass rushing menace when he played behind Ziggy Ansah. Pairing the former BYU teammates together could turn out to be a great move by the Lions
  • Chip Kelly landed “his guy” in Vanderbilt wide out Jordan Matthews. Kelly was all over him throughout the pre-draft process. They also later added another receiver in Josh Huff.
  • The Giants may have solved their biggest need in the draft by taking Colorado State center Weston Richburg. Richburg’s tape verses Albama’s front seven was extremely impressive.
  • One of the more surprising picks of the second round has been Seattle taking wide receiver Paul Richardson. Richardson is explosive but played under 170 pounds in college football at Colorado.
  • The Jets instantly upgrade their offense by adding pass catching demon Jace Amaro
  • The Dolphins took Jarvis Landry, who has drew a ton of comparisons to Anquan Boldin
  • The Rams look to bolster their backfield by taking Heisman Trophy candidate Trey Mason from Auburn
  • The Redskins had an excellent value pick with taking offensive tackle Morgan Moses early in round three
  • Surprising to see New England take Jimmy Garropolo. Is Ryan Mallet on the block?
  • Good work by Jacksonville adding both Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson. You need to surround your new young quarterback with talent.
  • Do people feel the Jets reached for McDougle in the 3rd round? Who would you have liked to see picked instead?
  • The Titans were the first team to select a running back, targeting Bishop Sankey. Carlos Hyde also went to the 49ers.
  • KAsh

    Damn it. I was hoping we picked up Richardson in the third.

  • Frank Antonelli

    That’s how you draft! You patiently wait and Amaro falls into your lap!

  • KAsh

    McDougle! Our secondary now officially becomes the DMZ!

  • Geronimo

    Kash calls McDougle, out of nowhere.

    Now if Hill and Nelson could walk into a lab and come out as one guy, we’ll be alright.

  • Jeremiah Johnson

    It’ll be very interesting to see how Amaro is used this year since he didn’t play like a traditional TE in college.

    I wasn’t familiar with McDougle at all, but after doing some googling, it seems like they drafted Kyle Wilson’s replacement. Based upon some highlight videos, which certainly don’t tell the whole story, he seems to play the ball well, was used as to blitz the QB (& Rex loves his CB blitzes), & had some nice kick & INT returns.
