PTP: NFL Draft Second Day

Good morning everyone and welcome to the second day of the NFL Draft. I will be here throughout the day with live coverage and random comments from time to time. There were a lot of big name players left on the board after Saturday’s opening two rounds and possible trades are all over the place so here we go.

Third Round

64.) Detroit LionsKevin Smith, RB, Central Florida

Danny: “This is a great pick. The Lions needed a back badly and Smith is a beast who will be a star.”

65.) St. Louis RamsJohn Greco, OT, Toledo
66.) Miami DolphinsKendall Langdon, DE, Hampton
67.) Carolina PanthersCharles Godfrey, CB Iowa
68.) Atlanta FalconsChevis Jackson, CB, LSU

Danny: “As if I wouldn’t comment on every LSU player taken, please! Jackson going this high surprises me, but it’s not like he isn’t worth it. Jackson is going to help a secondary that lost DeAngelo Hall and is missing an explosive corner.”

69.) San Diego ChargersJacob Hester, FB, LSU

Danny: “Well, two LSU players in a row and another guy I didn’t expect to go this high but he certainly has the talent to live up to a third round pick. After losing Lorenzo Neal and Michael Turner in the offseason, the Chargers needed a back that could do everything. You couldn’t have asked for a better one then Jacob Hester.”

70.) Chicago BearsEarl Bennett, WR, Vanderbilt
71.) Baltimore RavensTavares Gooden, LB, Miami
72.) Buffalo BillsChris Ellis, DE, Virginia Tech
73.) Kansas City ChiefsJamaal Charles, RB, Texas

79.) Houston TexansAntwaun Molden, CB, Eastern Kentucky
80.) Philadelphia EaglesBryan Smith, DE, McNeese State
81.) Arizona CardinalsEarly Doucet, WR, LSU

Danny: “Well, Doucet is finally off the board as the third LSU player taken in the third round. Doucet adds a lot to any team and even though his speed may not be the best, he can make catches anywhere on the field and fight through tackles.”

82.) Kansas City ChiefsDaJuan Morgan, S, NC State
83.) Tampa Bay BuccaneersJeremy Zuttah, OG, Rutgers
84.) Atlanta FalconsHarry Douglas, WR, Louisville
85.) Tennessee TitansCraig Stevens, TE, California

117.) Philadelphia EaglesQuintin Demps, S, UTEP
118.) Houston TexansXavier Adibi, LB, Virginia Tech
119.) Denver BroncosJack Williams, CB, Kent State
120.) Chicago BearsCraig Steltz, S, LSU

Danny: “Steltz finally gets taken off the board but Ali Highsmith is still there, I just don’t get it. I do know though that Steltz could jump into the starting line-up or at least the dime package right away for the Bears.”

135.) Green Bay PackersJosh Sitton, OT, Central Florida

Danny: “The fourth round is over and there are three to go. Lots of big names still hanging around including quarterbacks John David Booty, Andre Woodson, and Colt Brennan and also linebacker Ali Highsmith. Some teams are going to be getting some nice bargains as the day goes on.”

Fifth Round

TRADE: Packers trade pick to Saints.

237.) New Orleans SaintsAdrian Arrington, WR, Michigan

Danny: “Interesting to say the least. The Saints have about six or seven receivers already signed, but one or two could be gone by the time training camp gets going. I’m guessing the pressure is really on last year’s first round pick out of Tennessee, Robert Meachem.”

Danny: “Well everyone, this is the second straight year that I’ve been with you from the first pick all the way through to Mr. Irrelevant. It was not nearly as long a weekend as it was last year, but it still took everything out of me. Not that I care though because it is football baby. Now I am having it taken away from me and not getting jack shit until August and that’s just preseason.

Oh man, what to do? Have a good rest of the weekend everyone and hope you enjoyed the draft with all of us here at IP.”
