The picks on Day 2 came a bit quicker, but they were just as significant as the selections from the first day. Second and third-round picks are a pretty big deal in the NFL.

The Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks had six players picked in the second and third rounds in their starting lineup last season. That includes star quarterback, Russell Wilson, who was taken in the third round in 2012.

Could one of these players have a similar impact? Time will tell, but here's a list of all the players taken on Day 2, per NFL.com.

Players to Watch Who Were Selected in Round 2

Bishop Sankey

Joe Nicholson/Associated Press

It took 54 picks, but there was finally a halfback selected. Why has the running back position become such a seemingly unimportant position? Frank Schwab of Yahoo! Sports has a theory. Schwab writes:

The running back position isn't unimportant in the NFL, it's just a commodity nobody wants to invest in. Teams are using more running back committees. The short average career of a running back means no team wants to use a first-round pick on one for three or four quality years.

Of all the running backs in the 2014 draft, Sankey jumped out the most. Perhaps that's why he was the first back off the board.

Sankey ran for 1,870 yards and 20 touchdowns in 2013 at Washington. His quickness, versatility, toughness and leadership could make him a star and a fantasy football monster.

 

Jimmy Garoppolo

Tom Brady is 37 years old. He's a legend—we know that—but he can't play forever. Garoppolo hails from tiny Eastern Illinois, but he impressed scouts with his intellect and instincts.

Obviously, Garoppolo will be asked to backup Brady for the time being. The team will be hopeful that he can learn from a future Hall of Famer.

How does Garoppolo feel about this potential role? Per Mike Reiss of ESPN.com, Garoppolo said:

"I feel good about it. It's one of those things, whether I was coming in as the starter or the backup, I'm going to go in and approach it the same way either way. That's what good football players do."

That's the Patriot way.

Players to Watch Who Were Selected in Round 3

Tre Mason

PASADENA, CA - JANUARY 06:  Running back Tre Mason #21 of the Auburn Tigers runs for 37-yard touchdown against the Florida State Seminoles in the fourth quarter to take a 31-27 lead in the 2014 Vizio BCS National Championship Game at the Rose Bowl on Janu

An injury to the former Auburn star didn't seem to hurt Mason's draft stock much. The St. Louis Rams took him 75th overall in the third round on Friday. That's about where he was projected throughout the months leading up to the draft.

His mammoth season in 2013 had to open the eyes of some general managers.

In helping to lead Auburn to the national championship game, Mason ran for 1,816 yards and 23 touchdowns last season.

The Rams needed another back to help complement Zac Stacy. Mason could be the guy. 

 

Louis Nix III

As a 3-4 nose tackle, few players have the strength and presence on the ball that Nix III has. The Texans took him in the third round with the 83rd pick overall.

There are some concerns about his conditioning, but if he can improve in that area, he could be similar to Vince Wilfork in the NFL.
