The Biggest Steals from Day 2 of the 2014 NFL Draft

This has been a bizarre draft. 

Despite a number of solid selections early in the second round, the storyline in the second and third rounds was really all about reaches. 

Very few picks on the second day of the draft could truly be described as steals, but the following nine selections brought their teams elite value. 

When evaluating the selections, I considered a combination of my own personal draft grades and the general consensus on each prospect's value.

What was not considered was the projected slot where players would be drafted. For example, even though Marqise Lee appeared in many first-round mock drafts, he does not appear on this list. Lee was overvalued in the media due to his high-profile college career, but ultimately, he was selected in a fair range, making it difficult to call him a true steal.

It's worth noting that of these nine selections, five were made by the Cardinals, Rams and 49ers, as the loaded NFC West just continues to get stronger.
