It's one of those things everyone likes to talk about but only one team actually has the guts to do, reach for or trade up for the most hyped player in the draft.

It's usually a quarterback, but sometimes it's a defensive guy or a running back. But this year it is a quarterback; it's Tim Tebow.

No one attracts the kind of attention Tebow does this year. It's not worth talking about his merits, his weaknesses, or even what he's fixed since the end of the season.

All that matters at this point is which NFL team is going to take a chance on him.

I did a Round One mock earlier, which you can find here .

With that done, on to Round Two.

St. Louis Rams Take Derrick Morgan

Somehow Derrick Morgan made it through the first round, but things like this happen. With their quarterback fielding questions from the media on Day Two, the Rams take Morgan.

Detroit Lions Take Jahvid Best

The Lions need a better running game, Kevin Smith will be returning from an ACL tear, and Matthew Stafford could use someone out of the backfield. Best is the best sense here.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Take Arrelious Benn

The Bucs need a new wide receiver, and Benn becomes a steal with this pick. He's fast and he has good hands.

Kansas City Chiefs Take Demaryius Thomas

Matt Cassell could use another wide receiver as well, so Thomas goes off the board here.

Philadelphia Eagles Take Carlos Dunlap

The Eagles continue rebuilding in a year they swear they're not rebuilding.

Cleveland Browns Take Colt McCoy

This pick seems to be the most logical one considering neither Jake Delhomme or Seneca Wallace are the long-term answer at quarterback for Cleveland.

Oakland Raiders Take Jerry Hughes

And Oakland Fans are happy Al Davis didn't forget what year it was and draft Graham Harrell. Hughes ran a 4.59 at The Combine and did everything else a player needs to do to get Davis's attention.

San Diego Chargers Take Terrence Cody

Cody has taken on his detractors by losing weight during the off season. This commitment to correct his perceived problem is good enough for the Chargers to take him here.

Buffalo Bills Take Linval Joseph

Joseph projects to be a good value with this pick. He's a beast of a guy with good strength and speed for his size.

WE HAVE A TRADE!!! Jacksonville Jaguars Take Tim Tebow

The Jaguars trade up with Tampa Bay to get the hyped quarterback. It's a good move as taking him in the second round relieves some of the pressure to start him and his presence only will help sell tickets.

Denver Broncos Take Kareem Jackson

Jackson ran a fast 40 time and proved he was good in coverage last year.

New England Patriots Take Rob Gronkowski

The Patriots need a new tight end, and a 6'6", 258 lb tight end prospect could fill that need nicely.

Denver Broncos Take Jon Asamoah

The Broncos are going to need some lineman to protect Kyle Orton, making Asamoah the darling of Day Two for Broncos fans.

New York Giants Take Jamar Chaney

Chaney showed good speed at The Combine and had 90 tackles his senior season. He'll be a good addition to the Giants defense.

New England Patriots Take Damian Williams

Tom Brady needs another star wide receiver to throw to other than Randy Moss, Williams has the potential to fill that role.

Carolina Panthers Take Brandon LaFell

LaFell becomes one of the better-looking prospects on the board at this point and the Panthers have stated they would like to upgrade the position.

San Francisco 49ers Take Dexter McCluster

With defensive needs handled in the first round, the 49ers address their running game.

Kansas City Chiefs Take Nate Allen

Allen has been flying under the radar because of Eric Berry and Taylor Mays, but he's still a top talent and the Chiefs nab him with the 50th pick.

Houston Texans Take Ben Tate

The Texans address the need for a better running game by taking Tate. He ran a good time at The Combine, good enough to go in the second round.

Pittsburgh Steelers Take Geno Atkins

The defensive tackle out of Georgia has great speed for his size and showed an ability to get to the quarterback. The Steelers lacked this kind of player last year when Troy Polamalu was injured.

New England Patriots Take Tyson Alualu

Alualu played a 3-4 defense at college. This will be all Bill Belichick needs to see and Alualu becomes another menace for the rest of the AFC East to deal with.

Cincinnati Bengals Take Koa Misi

Misi was a tackling machine his senior year and he showed well at The Combine. Misi projects well here.

Philadelphia Eagles Take Lamarr Houston

Andy Reid continues rebuilding his defense with this pick. Houston ran a 4.85 40 despite weighing more than 300 lbs.

Green Bay Packers Take Alex Carrington

Carrington will add depth to the end of the Packers' line. At 6'5", 280 lbs, he'll get some starts in 2010.

Baltimore Ravens Take Chris Cook

The Ravens secondary got penalized pretty bad in the playoffs last year, which usually means the player getting penalized is losing a step and trying to compensate. So it's time to bring in some new blood.

Arizona Cardinals Take Jimmy Graham

Graham is a tight end no one seems to be talking about. They'll be talking about him plenty after the 2010 season.

Dallas Cowboys Take Morgan Burnett

The Cowboys go for one of the higher-rated players on the board and fill a need at the same time.

Seattle Seahawks Take Chad Jones

Pete Carroll, upset Burnett was taken just before them, takes Jones while there still are decent safeties to be taken.

New York Jets Take Patrick Robinson

The Jets need help on their pass coverage and Robinson is a bit of a steal at this slot.

Minnesota Vikings Take J.D. Walton

The Vikings go for the center out of Baylor. Pouncey was off the board in Round One in this mock and Walton was too much of a reach.

Indianapolis Colts Take Brandon Ghee

The Colts add depth to their secondary and take one of the better second round projections in the cornerback out of Wake Forest.

New Orleans Saints Take Cam Thomas

The Saints line gets some depth and ends the first round with Thomas. Thomas is a solid pick for this slot and his size, 6'4", 330 lbs, will be hard for opposing offensive lineman to deal with.
