Two days and 100 picks are in the books at the 2014 NFL draft.
A whirlwind of a first round that included top-five trades, star players falling down the board and shocking picks only set the stage for Day 2. On Friday, the second and third rounds unfolded, and teams began to see their draft classes take shape and their biggest needs filled in a resounding way.
While the meat of the draft won't be cut into until Saturday when the Rounds 4 through 7 take place, there is still plenty to dissect with most teams having made multiple draft picks at this point.
Let's break down everything you need to know from Day 2 of the draft.

Jags Aren't Messing Around on Offense
In case you were wondering whether the Jacksonville Jaguars were seriously going to revamp their offense or just throw another top-10 quarterback draft pick into an awful offense, Jacksonville convincingly proved the former to be true Friday night.
Jacksonville got its franchise quarterback Thursday with its No. 3 overall selection, but Friday it gave Blake Bortles a duo of targets to throw to as the Jaguars selected both Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson in the second round.
Out of USC, Lee was one of a few wideouts who fell out of the first round—but he didn't take long to get swooped up. The former Trojan has peak playmaking ability and can take it to the house at any point.
And as NFL.com analyst Daniel Jeremiah noted, both receivers translate well to Bortles' strengths:
With Justin Blackmon's future with the organization very much in doubt, per ESPN, it seems all but certain given the Jags' early aggressive moves that they don't plan on counting on him down the road.
But with the young core of receivers Jacksonville suddenly has around a developing Bortles and incumbent starter Chad Henne, the future looks bright for the Jags.
49ers Get Bigger, Stronger
San Francisco figured to be a busy team on Friday, but after making what seemed like a thousand trades, the 49ers settled into four stellar picks that will only bolster their big and tough identity.
The Niners' first pick of Friday was Carlos Hyde. The Ohio State running back was largely regarded as the draft's top back, and his blend of size, burst, power and speed seems to fit perfectly into the San Francisco offense and backfield.
The team's day was just getting started. After trading out of the second round yet again, the 49ers nestled into the 70th overall pick and got an ideal fit at center—Marcus Martin. A former USC standout, Martin's big frame and burly style of play also fits the Niners mold.
CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco thinks Martin has a shot to win a starting spot right away:
San Francisco once more addressed the offensive line at the end of Round 3, getting Clemson tackle Brandon Thomas. Before that, the 49ers nabbed hard-hitting linebacker Chris Borland in an ideal fit to the tough-nosed NFC West.
The Niners will likely have to go through Seattle to get back to the Super Bowl, and they seemed to know that quite well given their selections Friday. As much of the league gets smaller and faster, San Francisco continues to bulk up in the NFC West arms race.
Raiders Quietly Grab Future Starting QB
The Browns and Vikings both grabbed apparent future starting quarterbacks in Thursday's first round, but ever so quietly, the Raiders did the same early on in Friday's second round.
Oakland selected Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr with the No. 36 overall pick, filling the much-needed void of a young quarterback who can soon step into a starting role.
Carr didn't end up cracking the top tier of quarterbacks in Bortles, Johnny Manziel and Teddy Bridgewater, but he came in arguably more experienced than any other top QB in the class. His command of the offense at Fresno State, ability to make every throw and amount of time spent in a college system makes him the best bet to have success early on among the top quarterbacks.
Plus, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport revealed he was even Oakland's top QB choice:
Oakland got the obvious pick at No. 5 in Khalil Mack to give its defense an immediate leader and captain, but the team's need for a quarterback was pressing. The Raiders have Matt Schaub but certainly need a promising youngster to teach the system and compete with Schaub for the starting role.
Time will tell if Carr lives up to his potential, but he'll get the chance to prove himself in Oakland.
