College: Alabama
Class: 2014 SR
Position: QB
Rating:
Overall Rank: 57
Pos Rank: 7

Head Coach: Bill O'Brien
2013 Record: 2-14

ANALYSIS: Billy O'Brien is part of the Bill Belichick coaching tree. So to is Nick Saban. The three are all close. O'Brien gets a winner in McCarron who loves the game and will have all the opportunity in the world to thrive in Houston under this coach and staff.

Round 2
34
Washington Redskins
DE Kony Ealy
Player: Kony Ealy
Height: 6-4
Weight: 273

Rating:
Overall Rank: 27
Pos Rank: 2

Head Coach: Jay Gruden
2013 Record: 3-13

ANALYSIS: Washington finally gets to pick. They need help on the offensive front, defensive line and in the secondary. Here they go with defensive end Kony Ealy, the highest rated player still on the board.

35
Cleveland Browns
Height: 6-5
Weight: 240
Hometown: Belle Glade, Fla.
College: Florida State

Overall Rank: 23
Pos Rank: 4

Head Coach: Mike Pettine
2013 Record: 4-12

ANALYSIS: Cleveland got their offensive tackle and quarterback. Now it's time for wide receiver. Here they pick Kelvin Benjamin. Even in the second round he's a high risk high reward guy. But the Browns take their shot with Benjamin, who has a chance to be a monster on Sundays.

Round 2
36
Oakland Raiders
Player: Jimmie Ward
Height: 5-11
Weight: 193
Hometown: Mobile, Ala.
Class: 2014 SR
Position: S
Rating:
Overall Rank: 63
Pos Rank: 4

Head Coach: Dennis Allen
2013 Record: 4-12

ANALYSIS: Oakland needs to bolster their secondary. Here the Raiders pick safety Jimmie Ward. He should give their secondary a big boost. They have some older veterans in the back end and he should really benefit from playing with guys with that kind of experience.

Round 2
37
Atlanta Falcons

Height: 6-2
Weight: 252
Hometown: Odenville, Ala.
College: Auburn

Rating:
Overall Rank: 81
Pos Rank: 9

Rating:
Overall Rank: 12
Pos Rank: 3

Head Coach: Gus Bradley
2013 Record: 4-12
