Ring The Bell, Round 2 Is About To Start

Saturday, April 28, 2007

Round 1 is over (the longest first round in draft history according to Roger Goodell), but we're not done yet. The Arizona Cardinals are on the clock with the first pick of the second round (33rd overall); find out who they took after the jump.

(The following blogs took part in Round 2.)Dr. Doom, The Sports Hernia, Awful Officiating, Bucktown Skins Fan, Draft King, Point 23, HotFoot, The Feed, Complete Sports, 49ers Nation, BfloBlog, Digital Headbutt, PsampBlog, Sports Show on Mute, Mush Sports, Ladies..., Check out my HEMI, Stupid Sideline Reporters, La Revolucion, The 700 Level, If I Ran..., East Coast Bias, G-Money, Rumors and Rants, Extrapolater, Run up the Score, and The Big Picture.



Round 2, Pick 33: the Arizona Cardinals are on the clock

Arizona traded a second and a fourth round pick to Oakland for this choice.

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: the Oakland Raiders selected Trent Edwards, QB, Stanford

Real Life NFL Draft: the Arizona Cardinals select Alan Branch, DT, Michigan

Round 2, Pick 34: the Detroit Lions are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: the Detroit Lions selected Sidney Rice, WR, South Carolina

Trade: Detroit kicks the pick to Buffalo - terms will be forthcoming.

Real Life NFL Draft: the Buffalo Bills select Paul Posluszny, LB, Penn State

Those leftover first rounders are dropping like flies.

Round 2, Pick 35: the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: the Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected Brandon Meriweather, S, Miami

Terms of the Buffalo-Detroit deal: the two teams swapped second round picks, with Detroit getting the Bills' third-rounder as well.

Real Life NFL Draft: the Tampa Bay Buccaneers select Arron Sears, OG, Tennessee

Round 2, Pick 36: the Philadelphia Eagles are on the clock

Note: there have been a lot of changes in the draft order since the second round mock was started, so from this point on I'll list the player only for those picks, not the team. Should save a lot of confusion.

Just checked the results and Sears was the first player not drafted by our crack team of bloggers, who had Justin Blalock, Ryan Kalil and Tony Ugoh remaining on the board in front of the Tennessee guard.

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: Marcus McCauley, CB, Fresno State

Real Life NFL Draft: the Philadelphia Eagles select Kevin Kolb, QB, Houston

The Eagles fans on hand seem mildly displeased, and they might have a point: Kiper just said he has Kolb rated as the sixth best quarterback in the draft.

Second pick in a row that our bloggers did not foresee at all. Trent Edwards was the third and final quarterback on our board.

Round 2, Pick 37: the Chicago Bears are on the clock

Trade: the San Diego Chargers are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: Steve Smith, WR, USC

Real Life NFL Draft: Eric Weddle, S, Utah

Another example of right player, wrong position. The mock had the Chargers waiting until #62 to grab Weddle, but they moved up to take him here.

Round 2, Pick 38: the Oakland Raiders (from Arizona) are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: Josh Wilson, S, Maryland

That trade from above? Four draft picks to the Bears (three this year, one in 2008) so the Chargers could move up.

Real Life NFL Draft: the Oakland Raiders select Zach Miller, TE, Arizona State

Round 2, Pick 39: the Atlanta Falcons are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: Anthony Gonzales, WR, Ohio State

Gonzales went near the end of the first round, so we'll see who Atlanta adds in this position.

Real Life NFL Draft: the Atlanta Falcons select Justin Blalock, OG, Texas

Oddly enough, I tabbed Blalock with the Patriots second first round pick in a mock draft on the Fox Sports blogs. Word was that he is very versatile, capable of playing both guard and tackle.

Round 2, Pick 40: the Miami Dolphins are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: Drew Stanton, QB, Michigan State

Real Life NFL Draft: John Beck, QB, BYU

Not bad. Right position, wrong player, but it could fill a need for the Dolphins.

Round 2, Pick 41: the Minnesota Vikings are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: Dwayne Bowe, WR, LSU

Trade: the Atlanta Falcons are on the clock

Real Life NFL Draft: Chris Houston, CB, Arkansas

Round 2, Pick 42: the San Francisco 49ers are on the clock

Trade: San Francisco deals the pick to Indianapolis. The Colts are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: Ben Grubbs, OG, Auburn

Real Life NFL Draft: Tony Ugoh, OT, Arkansas

Round 2, Pick 43: the Detroit Lions are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: Ray McDonald, DE, Florida

Real Life NFL Draft: Drew Stanton, QB, Michigan State

Was that Drew Rosenhaus with Stanton? The guy was with Greg Olsen when he was selected near the end of the first round, not even two hours ago. Either they are situation very close to one another or Rosenhaus is capable of time travel.

Round 2, Pick 44: the Minnesota Vikings are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: Kenny Scott, CB, Georgia Tech

Real Life NFL Draft: Sidney Rice, WR, South Carolina

One of the guys I've blogged with for a long time over at Fox Sports, Demonicume, is a South Carolina alum who still follows the team very closely. He's watched Rice a ton over the last few years and thinks he's the real deal.

Round 2, Pick 45: the Carolina Panthers are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: David Harris, LB, Michigan

Real Life NFL Draft: Dwayne Jarrett, WR, USC

Keyshawn Johnson has a new friend to play with and mold in his own image.

Round 2, Pick 46: the Pittsburgh Steelers are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: Mason Crosby, K, Colorado

God, I hope so.

Real Life NFL Draft: LaMarr Woodley, DE, Michigan

Who decided it would be a good idea for Keyshawn Johnson to interview Dwayne Jarrett? Keyshawn has been pretty good today, in my opinion, but that was painful to watch.

Round 2, Pick 47: the Green Bay Packers are on the clock

Trade: the Packers deal the pick to the Jets. The New York Jets are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: Zach Miller, TE, Arizona State

Real Life NFL Draft: David Harris, LB, Michigan

Round 2, Pick 48: the Jacksonville Jaguars are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: Justin Blalock, OG, Texas

Real Life NFL Draft: Justin Durant, LB, Hampton

Round 2, Pick 49: the Cincinnati Bengals are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: Johnnie Lee Higgins, WR, UTEP

Real Life NFL Draft: Kenny Irons, RB, Auburn

Over to ESPN2 we go...

Round 2, Pick 50: the Tennessee Titans are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: Tank Tyler, DT, North Carolina State

Real Life NFL Draft: Chris Henry, RB, Arizona

Don't worry, I'm not gonna make any jokes about getting arrested. I promise. I'm not that witty.

Round 2, Pick 51: the New York Giants are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: Jeff Samardzija, WR, Notre Dame

Most horrifying discovery of this draft season? Samardzija has a tramp stamp. Talk about nightmare fuel...

Real Life NFL Draft: the New York Giants select Steve Smith, WR, USC

Round 2, Pick 52: the St. Louis Rams are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: Craig Davis, WR, LSU

Real Life NFL Draft: the St. Louis Rams select Brian Leonard, FB, Rutgers

Round 2, Pick 53: the Dallas Cowboys are on the clock

Trade: Dallas deals the pick to Cleveland. The very active Browns are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: Tanard Jackson, DB, Syracuse

Real Life NFL Draft: Eric Wright, CB, UNLV

Round 2, Pick 54: the Kansas City Chiefs are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: Tony Ugoh, OG, Arkansas

From the comments: mookie said...NO!!!!!!!!!!Brian Leonard was my pick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why do the RAMS need him?????????? - not bad, though, mook. Only missed by three positions.

Real Life NFL Draft: Turk McBride, DE, Tennessee

Round 2, Pick 55: the Seattle Seahawks are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: Brian Leonard, FB, Rutgers

Real Life NFL Draft: Josh Wilson, CB, Maryland

Round 2, Pick 56: the Denver Broncos are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: Buster Davis, LB, Florida State

Real Life NFL Draft: Tim Crowder, DE, Texas

Round 2, Pick 57: the Philadelphia Eagles are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: Michael Bush, RB, Louisville

Real Life NFL Draft: Victor Abiamiri, DE, Notre Dame

Round 2, Pick 58: the New Orleans Saints are on the clock

Trade: New Orleans trades the pick to Detroit. The Lions are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: Anthony Spencer, DE, Purdue

Real Life NFL Draft: Ikaika Alama-Francis, DE, Hawaii

Possibly the best name of anyone drafted so far.

The ESPN studio crew was just talking about the Raiders. Just before the commercial, someone said they would take a fifth round pick for Randy Moss at this point.

Call me naive, but shouldn't the Raiders be looking to hold on to Moss at this point? They just drafted a quarterback who can actually throw the deep ball, which should benefit both Moss and JaMarcus Russell. I'm not so sure Moss is as much of a liability as everyone wants to believe.

Round 2, Pick 59: the Carolina Panthers are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: Aundrae Allison, WR, East Carolina

Real Live NFL Draft: Ryan Kalil, C, USC

Andy Reid was joking around with Chris Berman during an interview and mentioned that he would like to have Keyshawn Johnson "come down here and score some touchdowns for us." Someone off camera was quick to say, "That's tampering." Reid was clearly joking around (although really - would he turn down the chance to have Johnson on his team?), but it was still an interesting insight into the way NFL insiders talk with one another. Is there any doubt he would have said the same thing to Keyshawn had they run into one another on the streets of New York? I don't think so, and I don't think it can be called tampering, but I guess it's a fine, fine line.

Round 2, Pick 60: the Miami Dolphins are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: Ryan Kalil, C, USC

Real Live NFL Draft: Samson Satele, C, Hawaii

Just missed on this one, althought again, the position was on the money.

Round 2, Pick 61: the Baltimore Ravens are on the clock

Trade: the Ravens deal the pick to Detroit. The Lions are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: Lorenzo Booker, RB, Florida State

Real Live NFL Draft: Gerald Alexander, S, Boise State

Round 2, Pick 62: the Chicago Bears are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: Eric Weddle, S, Utah

Real Live NFL Draft: Dan Bazuin, DE, Central Michigan

Trent Edwards is waaaaaaaaay more depressing than Brady Quinn ever was. Very nice of Trey Wingo to read off a list of guys who were either drafted on the second day or not at all. Just what the guy wants to think about after watching TV and waiting for the phone to ring for the last nine hours: having to do the same thing again tomorrow.

Stop trying to help, Trey.

Round 2, Pick 63: the Green Bay Packers are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: Daymeion Hughes, CB, California

Real Live NFL Draft: Brandon Jackson, RB, Nebraska

Last pick. Hope everyone enjoyed what happened here today (even though the majority of the day was a fairly bland listing of picks). I should be around for the rest of the weekend, so stop back in if you like and see what's going on.

Round 2, Pick 64: the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are on the clock

Sports Bloggers Mock Draft: Jason Hill, WR, Washington State

Real Live NFL Draft: Sabby Piscitelli, S, Oregon State

Okay...THIS is the best name I've seen today.

OMDQ,can you at least give the blogger name and who he/she picked for that particular draft position?

mookie, I don't have that information offhand. The draft order and selections were taken from the post AA did yesterday.

Apr 28, 2007, 6:53:00 PM  

I'd just like to point out that in the bloggers' mock draft, I picked Eric Weddle to go to San Diego in the 2nd round...I'm either a genius or totally freaking lucky. Since I had never heard of Eric Weddle before making that pick, it's most likely the latter.

mookie, that was supposed to be the order, but I can't guarantee that it is correct. For instance, I made a pick for Tennessee at number 50, but it was somehow changed to an entirely different player.

If anyone picked for a certain team and wants to comment on it when the real pick is made, please do so.

Apr 28, 2007, 7:15:00 PM  

OMDQ,can you at least give the blogger name?

That's what I meant to say. Sorry for not making that clear.

mookie said...
Apr 28, 2007, 7:33:00 PM  

mookie, I haven't been giving blogger names because I don't know for sure who made what picks.

For instance, I selected David Ball in the second round. The name on AA's list was Tank Tyler. I'm not going to put my name on that pick because I didn't make it. Likewise, I wouldn't put the names of others on picks that I don't know for sure they made.

Apr 28, 2007, 7:42:00 PM  

NO!!!!!!!!!!Brian Leonard was my pick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why do the RAMS need him??????????

people will not be disappointed in Sidney Rice. he'sa Keyshawn Johnson still WR. everyone is coveting speed in the NFL, but the difference in many games is key downs. on 3rd and long, Sidney will keep the drive alive even if your QB couldnt hit the broadside of barn from the inside

Hey everyone. I am a huge college football fan like you and a few college buddies and I like to wager (like most everyone) on college games, which by way are almost here!! My favorite team is probably USC right now, but that changes frequently:). Anyway, we were asked to find a good site that carries US Friendly Sportsbooks, as well as odds, scores, trends, predictions, game analyses, etc. We not only found that but we found a site that will be offering a FREE Football Consensus (college and pro) this season. They, which was nice, also have done the reasearch on online casinos and poker rooms that take credit cards, have some rad bonuses and actually keep their bonus promises, as well as payouts. You might want to try them at http://www.coachescorner.com (Coaches Corner Sports) as so far after a few months we have not had any problems. Good luck with your favorite team!
