CBSSports.com senior writer Pete Prisco analyzes each pick from Round 2 of the 2014 NFL Draft, grading each team on its draft-night selections.
|33||B-||Texans select: Xavier Su'a Filo, OG, UCLA |
This is a safe pick for a team that needs line help. He's a mauler and will be a rookie starter. Why not Louis Nix?
|34||A||Cowboys select: DeMarcus Lawrence, DE, Boise State |
Great move by the Cowboys. I had a first-round grade on this kid. They need pass-rush help.
|35||C||Browns select: Joel Bitonio, OG, Nevada |
Why not a receiver here? I know they have guard issues and might want to replace the right tackle, but passing on receivers? I like Bitonio as a player, though.
|36||B||Raiders select: Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State |
They loved this kid all along, and they need a quarterback, so I get it. In the second round, it's a good pick.
|37||B||Falcons select: Ra'shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota |
The Falcons wanted to get bigger on both lines, and they have in this draft. This is a feast or famine pick. He could be a star like Richard Seymour, but the motor is a concern.
|38||B+||Buccaneers select: Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington |
They need a tight end and I love this kid. He is inconsistent, but he has a ton of talent. This is a good, sound, pick.
|39||B+||Jaguars select: Marqise Lee, WR, Southern California |
This is a good pick. He had first-round talent. Why he dropped is a mystery. He will be their No. 1 in a year or so. Blake Bortles has to be happy.
|40||B||Lions select: Kyle Van Noy, OLB, Brigham Young |
The best players are going off the board, and this is one of them. I like this pick much more than their first-round pick. Van Noy will upgrade that speed on defense.
|41||A||Rams select: Lamarcus Joyner, CB, Florida State |
I hate to keep giving out good grades, but this is one of my favorite players in this draft. He will be a special nickel corner. The Rams are killing it.
|42||B-||Eagles select: Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt |
I think there were better options, but Matthews is a good player. He doesn't play as fast as his time, but he will catch a lot of balls in that offense. Trading up with other receivers on the board is a bit of a mystery.
|43||C||Giants select: Weston Richburg, C, Colorado State |
Why didn't they take a defensive player? Richburg is a good player, but I think they needed defensive help.
|44||B-||Bills select: Cyrus Kouandjio, OT, Alabama |
I thought this kid regressed in a big way last season. If he can play like he did in 2012, it's a good pick. That's a big if, but it could be a big hit. The value is here.
|45||B||Seahawks select: Paul Richardson, WR, Colorado |
He can fly, and will help upgrade their passing game. He isn't big, but he can run. That will be a plus for Russell Wilson.
|46||B-||Steelers select: Stephon Tuitt, DT, Notre Dame |
Tuitt was a really good player in 2012, but not so good in 2013. So I will grade it like that.
|47||B||Redskins select: Trent Murphy, DE, Stanford |
Murphy was on my Better-Than team, so I like him as a player. He is better than I expected when I watched him. But where does he fit with the Redskins?
|48||B+||Ravens select: Timmy Jernigan, DT, Florida State |
There is great value in getting Jernigan for the Ravens. He had first-round talent, and he can be a good rotation player as a rookie.
|49||C+||Jets select: Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech |
They need weapons for the offense, but why not a receiver? They do have Jeff Cumberland at tight end. I would have taken a receiver, but Amaro will help.
|50||B||Chargers select: Jeremiah Attaochu, DE, Georgia Tech |
Getting an outside pass rusher is a nice move. They can pair him with Melvin Ingram as edge rushers in passing situations.
|51||B-||Bears select: Ego Ferguson, DT, LSU |
This might be a little high for him, but he was a guy who a lot of scouts really liked. They need help there, so it fits.
|52||C||Cardinals select: Troy Niklas, TE, Notre Dame |
The Cardinals need a blocking tight end and. Bruce Arians loves them, so I get it. But this is kind of high for that.
|53||B||Packers select: Davante Adams, WR, Fresno State |
I like the pick of Adams for a team that lost James Jones. He will be a perfect fit for their offense.
|54||C+||Titans select: Bishop Sankey, RB, Washington |
They get a replacement for Chris Johnson, and he's a versatile back who can factor in the passing game. But, he is a back.
|55||C+||Bengals select: Jeremy Hill, RB, LSU |
I knew they needed a runner, but again this is too high. But Hue Jackson wants to run it more. That's not a good thing.
|56||A||Broncos select: Cody Latimer, WR, Indiana |
This is a great pick. The Broncos get another weapon. Scary. He can be a big-play weapon in a year or so.
|57||C+||49ers select: Carlos Hyde, RB, Ohio State |
With Gore aging, I get it. But they seemingly draft a back a year, which is weird.
|58||B+||Saints select: Stanley Jean-Baptiste, CB, Nebraska |
I love this big corner and they need help there. The trend is to pick bigger corners and he is at 6-3. Nice pick.
|59||C+||Colts select: Jack Mewhort, OT, Ohio State |
I imagine he is being moved to guard, but this is still a little high. He was a bit stiff when I watched him.
|60||D||Panthers select: Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri |
This is a strange pick for a team that has two good edge rushers with so many needs. Dave Gettleman is following the Giants way, but come on.
|61||B||Jaguars select: Allen Robinson, WR, Penn State |
I like this pick again by the Jaguars. This is a big receiver to go with Lee. Nice job.
|62||C-||Patriots select: Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, Eastern Illinois |
This is a weird choice. They have Ryan Mallett and Tom Brady has some good years left. Plus, I think this is high for him.
|63||C-||Dolphins select: Jarvis Landry, WR, LSU |
I guess if you like 4.7 receivers this works. I don't like it. He's reliable, but is that worth a second-round pick? There were better options.
|64||B-||Seahawks select: Justin Britt, OT, Missouri |
This is a little high for him, but it does fill a need as a possible right tackle. He is a tough guy in the Seattle mold of players.
