It's Day 2 of the 2019 NFL draft. The action picks back up in Nashville, Tennessee, for Rounds 2 and 3 on Friday night, and there are still several top-tier prospects on the board. With only one cornerback, one running back and two wide receivers going in Round 1, some teams are going to get what they view as Day 1 talent here on Day 2. For teams who didn't pick in Round 1, like the Cleveland Browns and Chicago Bears, the selection process starts here.

    Panthers Add Injury Insurance, Take QB Will Grier

    The Panthers have a high-end quarterback in Cam Newton, but the former NFL MVP is recovering from shoulder surgery this offseason. Therefore, the selection of West Virginia quarterback Will Grier should be seen as injury insurance. With time to develop, though, Grier could emerge as a quality starter—potentially giving Carolina some future trade ammunition.

    Bills Get Knox at 96

    Buffalo got another weapon for second-year quarterback Josh Allen by drafting Mississippi tight end Dawson Knox in the third round. While Knox didn't have eye-popping numbers in college, he does bring a good combination of blocking ability and field-stretching potential. He averaged 18.9 yards per reception in 2018.

    Giants Add a Pass-Rusher in Round 3

    New York added another piece to its defensive front, grabbing Old Dominion edge-rusher Oshane Ximines with the 95th overall pick. Ximines doesn't have a big-program pedigree, but he does have plenty of proven production. He had 20.5 sacks over the past two seasons.

    Cowboys Add Penn State Guard McGovern at 90

    The Dallas Cowboys bolstered their offensive line by grabbing Penn State interior lineman Connor McGovern in the third round. McGovern has experience playing both guard and center and should be a versatile piece of the Dallas O-line.

    Ravens Draft Jaylon Ferguson 85th Overall

    The Baltimore Ravens grabbed Louisiana Tech pass-rusher Jaylon Ferguson, who had an NCAA-record 45 career sacks. This was a position of need after both Terrell Suggs and Za'Darius Smith departed in free agency.

    Steelers Snag CB Layne 83rd Overall

    The Pittsburgh Steelers needed depth in the secondary. They added Michigan State cornerback Justin Layne in Round 3. The lanky 6'3" defensive back had an impressive 15 passes defended in 2018 alone.

    TakiTaki Is a Tackling Machine

    The Browns were in need of linebacker depth even before they parted with Jamie Collins in the offseason. They added BYU linebacker Sione Takitaki in the third round (80th overall). Takitaki racked up 118 tackles, 9.0 tackles for a loss and 3.0 sacks in 2018.

    Patriots Get Chase Winovich at 77

    New England grabbed Michigan defensive end Chase Winovich with the 77th pick in the draft. Winovich is a gritty defender who should fit the Patriots system and who could step right in and replace Trey Flowers, who departed in free agency. He isn't a pure pass-rusher, but Winovich can get after the quarterback. He had 13.0 sacks over the last two seasons.

    Bears Take David Montgomery at 73

    The Chicago Bears got their replacement for Jordan Howard, who was traded to the Eagles in the offseason. The Iowa State ball-carrier has tremendous burst and vision and should be a nice complement to Tarik Cohen. In 2018, he amassed 1,216 yards rushing and 13 touchdowns.

    Rams Snag Henderson at 70

    The Rams scooped up Memphis running back Darrell Henderson with the 70th pick. This shouldn't be viewed as a statement on Todd Gurley's health. Henderson can be a tremendous change-of-pace back alongside Gurley. He has true home-run-hitting ability, as evidenced by his 8.92 yards-per-carry average in 2018.

    Jets Land Jachai Polite at 68

    Florida pass-rusher Jachai Polite slid late in the draft process but was at one point viewed by many as a first-round talent. He racked up 17.5 tackles for a loss and 11.0 sacks in 2018, and those didn't happen by accident.
