A flurry of trades in the first round shuffled the order for Rounds 2 and 3 on Day 2 of the NFL draft. It is best just to get used to the change because the trades aren't done yet. 

Obviously, Day 2 does not feature the kind of star power of Thursday's first round, but it does offer some excellent prospects and plenty of excitement. 

Have a look at the draft order, and then I'll offer up a few predictions for the excitement that awaits NFL junkies on Friday.

Day 2 Predictions

Houston Will Add More Power to Front Seven

The Houston Texans are on the clock...again. After taking Jadeveon Clowney with the No. 1 selection on Thursday, the Texans will get the first selection on Friday.

This sets up for a potentially interesting situation, as the Texans have to identify their quarterback of the future, and the best one on the board is Derek Carr.

Colts' beat writer Mike Chappell helps explain:

The Texans have to avoid this situation. If Carr was a surefire prospect in the vein of Andrew Luck, the Texans could look past the family connection. 

He is available in Round 2 for a reason, however. The Texans will opt to let him slide by and instead add Louis Nix III from Notre Dame. 

He is the best pure nose tackle prospect in this draft. Houston's front seven would be complete and scary with the addition of both Clowney and Nix. 

 

Carr Will Drive into Oakland

With the Texans passing on Carr, it clears the path for the Raiders to grab their signal-caller of the future.

The Raiders select fourth in the second round. Drafting before them are the Texans, Redskins and Browns.

If the Texans don't take Carr, and no team trades in front of the Raiders, he will be available.

This should be acceptable to Oakland. Bleacher Report's Matt Miller explains that the Raiders have long appeared to be enamored with Carr: 

With Matt Schaub ready to handle starting duties under center in Oakland next season, Carr would have no pressure to come in and play right away. That is especially true with him not going in the first round.

After Khalil Mack fell in their lap at No. 5, this draft is working out all right for the Raiders. 

 

Timmy Jernigan's Free Fall Will Stop in Chicago

Some, including me, mocked Timmy Jernigan to the Chicago Bears at pick No. 14. He didn't go in that selection or any other in the first round. 

The news in this tweet from Sports Illustrated may have something to do with that: 

Jernigan never figured to be the kind of player who explodes into the backfield to make big plays. This makes it easier to pass on him in the face of any red flags, and it will leave him on the board for much of the second round. 

He won't last past the Bears at No. 19 in the second round, though. 

They finished this past season dead last in rush defense. That side of the ball has gotten old, soft and vulnerable. With their first selection, they went for cornerback Kyle Fuller. That means they almost have to add to the front seven with their next selection to shore up that awful run defense. 

They will overlook whatever concerns there are with Jernigan to bring in his strength and ability to clog running lanes.
