NFL Draft Order 2013: Updated Picking Order for Rounds 2 and 3

The 2013 NFL draft hasn't been short on intrigue thus far through the first 32 picks. With so much value existing in Rounds 2 and 3 thanks to the unique depth of this class, the second day of action in New York City should be particularly exciting.

Only one quarterback was taken in the first round in ex-Florida State standout EJ Manuel, who went  No. 16 overall to the Buffalo Bills.

Plenty more signal-callers figure to come off the board on Friday—and it won't take too long. Let's take a look at the updated draft order, while also highlighting some of the best players available this evening and where they might wind up.

Storylines

Will Jacksonville Jaguars kick off Day 2 by selecting a quarterback?

New GM David Caldwell wisely didn't reach for a QB with the No. 2 overall pick, instead opting for the safe option of offensive tackle Luke Joeckel. That sets up the Jags at No. 33 overall in prime position to choose between three promising quarterbacks.

West Virginia’s Geno Smith was widely considered the top prospect, but didn’t go in the first round. Questions about arm strength and physical tools surround Matt Barkley, despite the fact that he enjoyed a four-year tenure as starter for Southern California.

Those are the two likeliest candidates to attempt to solidify the position in Jacksonville, which is currently occupied by 2011 No. 10 overall pick Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne.

Neither has proven to be a viable long-term answer for the struggling franchise, and having the right player under center is critical to turning the Jaguars’ fortunes around.

However, NFL Network's Gil Brandt seems to believe that the Jags will take Mississippi State cornerback Johnthan Banks:

It's difficult to say what is a smokescreen and what isn't at this stage. But whether it’s Smith, Barkley or someone else, don’t expect Jacksonville to wait much longer in addressing the quarterback position.

 

Three franchise running backs will be chosen on Day 2

Alabama’s Eddie Lacy is a 231-pound bruiser capable of shouldering a heavy workload from the beginning, and his surprising nimbleness and ability to finish runs will help make him successful as a rookie.

Although he may not have as big of an impact in his maiden NFL campaign, ex-South Carolina star Marcus Lattimore shouldn’t fall outside of the third round.

The team that chooses the inspiring Lattimore will be getting a player who is fighting through a second potential career-threatening injury at a rapid pace, and Lattimore himself said he’d be ready for Week 1.

With an uncanny nose for the end zone, the aptitude to catch the ball and blend of power and speed, Lattimore will be a wonderful success story. NFL Network's Jeff Darlington is sold on the impressively resilient running back:

Johnathan Franklin isn’t as well known coming out of UCLA, but he is just as good as his other two higher profile counterparts. Don’t be surprised if he has the most instant success in 2013 due to his decisive running style, stocky frame and lateral quickness to slip through the smallest of holes.

Selecting running backs is increasingly dicey in today’s NFL, but there are three legitimate studs available.

 

Projecting landing spots for other notable prospects

Stanford TE Zach Ertz could be in for a reunion with Jim Harbaugh in San Francisco.

San Francisco 49ers (No. 34, via KC)Zach Ertz, TE, Stanford: Niners head coach Jim Harbaugh recruited Ertz to Stanford, and that connection should be enough to land him in the Golden State.

Ertz is a crisp route-runner with soft hands, sound fundamentals and a strong understanding of what the Niners do offensively. He would be a nice complement to stud TE Vernon Davis, with the ability to also split out wide and stretch the field.

 

Cincinnati Bengals (No. 37, via OAK)—Jonathan Cyprien, S, Florida International: Upgrading the strong safety position would be ideal for the Bengals, who don’t have many other pressing needs to fill.

Cyprien is a hard-hitting step up from Taylor Mays, and has flashed the ability to be a ball hawk by grabbing four interceptions in his final year at FIU.

Buffalo Bills (No. 41)—Manti Te’o, ILB, Notre Dame: The fall ends for the ex-Fighting Irish All-American, as the Bills use the ninth pick of the second round to snag the savvy linebacker.

Which prospect has the most Pro Bowl potential?

Te’o could fill in the heart of the defense, allowing Kelvin Sheppard to slide over to the outside linebacker spot. Defensive coordinator Mike Pettine has been coy about schemes, but indicated the Bills will use both 4-3 and 3-4 alignments. Either way, Te’o presents wonderful value, making up for the perceived first-round reach for Manuel.

 

Carolina Panthers (No. 44)—Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee: At 6’4” and 200 pounds with a 40.5” vertical leap, Hunter has the upside to be a No. 1 wide receiver and an extremely dangerous deep threat in addition to being a red-zone monster.

Cordarrelle Patterson may have gotten more hype—and he’s outstanding in his own right—but Hunter is a steal at this juncture for Carolina. Cam Newton gets a needed No. 2 option to pair across the aging Steve Smith.
