Randall Cobb (59th Overall)
57. Seattle Seahawks—Curtis Brown—Cornerback—Texas
In the first round, Seattle made a decisive move for their future by adding Jake Locker. In the second, they’ll likely turn their focus to the other side of the ball, or more particularly, the defensive backfield. Brown is the second Texas corner off the board this round and perhaps the more NFL-ready. He has excellent feet and man-cover skills.
58. Baltimore Ravens—Kelvin Sheppard—Inside Linebacker—LSU
For the Ravens, no defensive position is due for an improvement as much as the inside backer spot next to Ray Lewis. Sheppard has great size, instincts, and enough range to make it as a starter early in the NFL. He’s a terrific fit for the Ravens and could not ask for a better mentor to learn from.
59. Atlanta Falcons—Randall Cobb—Wide Receiver—Kentucky
While gearing up for future Super Bowl runs, the Falcons must give Matt Ryan additional weapons to keep defenses off balance. Cobb is an extremely versatile, explosive offensive weapon that could develop into a very effective Wide Receiver in Atlanta. Additionally, he offers return value.
