Now that Round 1 is officially in the books, it's never too early to start making predictions for Friday's second round. After some surprises on Day 1, several players worthy of a first-round pick still remain on the board.
First-round selections are always the most important, but the teams that maximize value in rounds 2-7 tend to find themselves in the playoffs on a regular basis.
Here is how I see the next round of the draft playing out.
33. St. Louis Rams: Rueben Randle, WR, LSU
The best receiver on the board, he fills a huge position of need for the Rams, who missed out on Justin Blackmon.
34. Indianapolis Colts: Courtney Upshaw, DE/OLB, Alabama
The Colts will try to trade Dwight Freeney, but in any case, Upshaw is too good a player to pass up at this point in the draft.
35. Baltimore Ravens: Peter Konz, C, Wisconsin
Once again, Ozzie Newsome's patience pays off, The Ravens are able to land first-round talent in the second round at a position of need.
36. Denver Broncos: Devon Still, DT Penn State
The Broncos were patient, and it pays off. Still will be able to start immediately and will fill a huge need for Denver.
37. Cleveland Browns: Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford
They got their running back and quarterback in just a few hours. Now that they have a right tackle, this offense is starting to take shape.
38. Jacksonville Jaguars: Andre Branch, DE, Clemson
After landing their receiver in the first round, they get their missing piece on defense with a big-time pass-rusher.
39. St. Louis Rams: Jerel Worthy, DT, Michigan State
Even after adding Michael Brockers in Round 1, the Rams could still use another defensive tackle in their rotation.
40. Carolina Panthers: Janoris Jenkins, CB, Northern Alabama
Jenkins has his share of character flaws, but at this point in the draft, he is worth the gamble.
41. Buffalo Bills: Cordy Glenn, OT/OG, Georgia
The Bills can see how he does at tackle before kicking him inside. In any case, he is too good of a player to pass on at this point.
42. Miami Dolphins: Vinny Curry, DE, Marshall
Despite carrying the small-school label, Curry is one of the safest defensive prospects in the draft. After rolling the dice on Ryan Tannehill, Miami would like to make a safer pick to follow it up.
43. Seattle Seahawks: Lamar Miller, RB, Miami, Fla.
Marshawn Lynch is a good player, but in this league, you need two guys to carry the load. Miller would be a great third-down back.
44. Kansas City Chiefs: Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford
With two good receiving tight ends on the roster, the Chiefs are going to be a tough team to defend in 2012.
45. St. Louis Rams: Josh Robinson, CB, Central Florida
Robinson has a ton of speed and upside. He will fill a need position that was ravaged by injuries in 2011.
46. Philadelphia Eagles: Kirk Cousins, QB, Michigan State
This is a bit early for Cousins, but he is an ideal fit in Andy Reid's offense. Think Kevin Kolb 2.0.
47. New York Jets: Mohamed Sanu, WR, Rutgers
Sanu is not a speedster, but he can be a reliable target opposite Santonio Holmes from Day 1.
48. New England Patriots: Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech
Now that they have their new defensive toys, the Pats can turn their attention to the offensive side of the ball.
49. San Diego Chargers: Mike Adams, OT, Ohio State
Adams has some baggage after failing a drug test at the combine. But at this point, he is well worth the gamble.
50. Chicago Bears: Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina
Jeffery has some red flags in terms of weight, but he is a naturally gifted receiver who would give the Bears a huge upgrade as a No. 2.
51. Philadelphia Eagles: Ben Jones, C, Georgia
If Jones can start right away, if would finally put any offensive line issues in Philly to rest.
52. Tennessee Titans: Casey Heyward, CB, Vanderbilt
The attention turns to the defensive side of the ball as they look for an eventual replacement for Cortland Finnegan.
53. Cincinnati Bengals: Kendall Reyes, DT, Connecticut
Reyes is a very underrated prospect who will give an aging defensive line some fresh blood in the rotation.
54. Detroit Lions: Jamell Fleming, CB, Oklahoma
After giving some help to an aging offensive line, attention must now turn to the defense, particular in the secondary.
55. Atlanta Falcons: Lavonte David, OLB, Nebraska
David is a physical player who will find his way into the starting lineup in no time.
56. Pittsburgh Steelers: Mike Martin, DT, Michigan
A strong, hard-nosed player who produces more than his natural abilities would suggest. In typical Steeler fashion, he will sit and learn before being forced into the starting lineup.
57. Denver Broncos: Brock Osweiler, QB, Arizona State
Denver has already been linked to the Arizona State product as an eventual successor to Peyton Manning. Osweiler is a very raw prospect, but has great size for the position and can make all the throws.
58. Houston Texans: Josh Chapman, DT, Alabama
Chapman is not going to give you much in terms of pass rush. But any team looking for immediate help in stopping the run should look no further than Chapman.
Chapman was a vital cog in the great Alabama defense, eating up blocks and creating lanes for linebackers to roam and make plays. He is scheme diverse, able to play as a 3-4 nose or as a 4-3 0 or 1-technique.
59. Green Bay Packers: Chris Polk, RB, Washington
James Starks is a nice player, but he cannot carry the weight of an offense on his own. Polk is largely unspectacular, but he has great vision and will get you the yards you need.
60. Baltimore Ravens: James Brown, OG, Troy
Adds depth on a much-depleted offensive line. He could compete with Jah Reid for the starting job.
61. San Francisco 49ers: Dwayne Allen, TE, Clemson
Adding another dynamic presence opposite Vernon Davis would make this offense very difficult to deal with.
62. New England Patriots: Jared Crick, DE, Nebraska
A versatile defensive lineman who can line up in either a 4-3 or 3-4. He proved that he can produce without a stud like Ndamukong Suh next to him.
63. New York Giants: Bobbie Massie, OT, Ole Miss
They have the stud running backs, now they have a long-term solution at right tackle to keep Eli Manning comfortable and upright.
