34. New England — Darius Butler, CB, Connecticut, Senior: Butler didn't have a single interception in '09. And that's simply because no quarterback in his right mind threw the ball near him. There's a lot of talk of the Patriots being interested in making him the 23rd pick. If they can get him at No. 34, even better.

35. St. Louis — James Laurinaitis, LB, Ohio State, Senior: The 2007 Butkus Award winner is everything Coach Spags would want — tough, smart and tireless. Add Laurinaitis to that unit and the Rams are suddenly boiling with up-and-coming talent in their front seven.

36. Cleveland — Hakeem Nicks, WR, North Carolina, Junior: Crabtree could be the man in the first round if Braylon Edwards is shipped to New York, as is widely rumored. If not, Jackson and Nicks with first- and second-round picks would be quite a first day for Cleveland.

37. Seattle — Jamon Meredith, OT, South Carolina, Senior: Walter Jones is headed toward the last few years of his career, but the 'Hawks have dedicated a lot of money to Sean Locklear as their left tackle of the future. Either way, Meredith is versatile enough to play either left or right tackle and could provide some depth to the O-line.

38. Cincinnati — Donald Brown, RB, Connecticut, Junior: The NCAA's leading rusher in '08 could be a steal in the second round. Cedric Benson had a very strong finish to the '08 season. He and Brown could make for a dynamic 1-2.

39. Jacksonville — Josh Freeman, QB, Kansas State, Junior: As Freeman has reportedly accepted his invitation to sit in the green room on Draft Day, this would certainly be some spectacle. In all the years that the NFL has invited a select group of prospects to the event, none has ever slipped to No. 39 overall. Jacksonville doesn't need a starting quarterback, per se, but at this spot might grab Freeman.

40. Oakland — Eric Wood, C, Louisville, Senior: The third of the three prized center prospects goes in the top 40 to Oakland, where coach Tom Cable knows a thing or two about the offensive line. Wood can play center, guard or tackle at the next level.

41. Green Bay — Ron Brace, DT, Boston College, Senior: Aside from his college teammate Raji, Brace is probably the only DT in this draft who can handle the DT spot in a 3-4 defense tomorrow. Orakpo and Brace would be nice first-day pickups for the woeful Packers D.

42. Buffalo — Jared Cook, TE, South Carolina, Junior: Trent Edwards already got T.O. this offseason. Add Cook, an athletic tight end with solid hands and blocking ability, and Buffalo might actually have a dangerous passing offense this year.

43. San Francisco — Sean Smith, CB, Utah, Senior: A guy named Smith out of Utah? Shouldn't that give 49ers fans nightmares? This Smith — Sean, not Alex — is a 6-4 ballhawk. Still relatively new to the cornerback position, he'll learn from veterans Walt Harris and Nate Clements.

44. Miami — Connor Barwin, DE/LB/TE, Cincinnati, Senior: A defensive end/linebacker/tight end? Really? That exists? Apparently, they do. Barwin can play a variety of positions for the defending AFC East champions. Parcells and Co. would be delighted to see him drop to 44th overall.

45. N.Y. Giants — Clint Sintim, OLB, Virginia, Senior: Sintim led all Div. I linebackers in sacks last season with 11. Though New York added Michael Boley this offseason, Danny Clark isn't getting any younger at OLB. Sintim could play right away in New York.

46. Houston — Vontae Davis, CB, Illinois, Junior: If Davis slips all the way to here, it'd be a major shocker for the talking heads. But with a relatively underwhelming class of cornerback prospects, this is actually quite possible. Vernon's brother could start right away in Houston.

47. New England — Fili Moala, DT, USC, Senior: There's a need for interior help on that D-Line. Moala might take some time to learn the ropes of the Patriots defensive schemes, but could be a strong pick for the long-term. Several of New England's defensive linemen have contracts that are up the next two offseasons.

48. Denver — Louis Delmas, S, Western Michigan, Senior: Delmas is an aggressive, hard-hitting DB who played both corner and safety at Western Michigan. A team captain in college, he'll bring a mature attitude and work ethic to the rebuilding Broncos defense. Learning from Champ Bailey and Brian Dawkins can't hurt.

49. Chicago — Mike Mickens, CB, Cincinnati, Senior: The second-round run on defensive backs continues with Mickens leaping over D.J. Moore and Alphonso Smith and going to Chicago at 49th. The Bears' D was 30th in the league in pass defense last year.

50. Cleveland — William Moore, S, Missouri, Senior: Solid hitter and quarterback of the Mizzou defense. Battled injuries during his senior year, which might have hurt his draft stock a bit. Mangini's D picks up a solid contributor who can play right away.

51. Dallas — Patrick Chung, S, Oregon, Senior: Yep, another defensive back comes flying off the board. With Roy Williams now out of the picture in Big D, Chung and his 51 collegiate starts slides right into the defensive backfield. A two-time first-team All-Pac 10 performer, Chung is as accomplished a college D-back you'll find.

52. N.Y. Jets — Lawrence Sidbury, DE, Richmond, Senior: A relative unknown out of Richmond, the Jets take a gamble on a small-school warrior who dominated against lesser competition. In the FCS Championship game against Montana last season, Sidbury recorded four sacks and led his team to a title. Jets fans in Radio City might be scratching their heads if this pick is made on Saturday night, but they should be clapping their hands.

53. Philadelphia — Rashad Johnson, S, Alabama, Senior: With Brian Dawkins now in Denver, the two Quintins — Demps and Mikell — take over at the safety spots in Philly. Johnson, the defensive captain of last year's surprise Alabama team, would add some depth.

54. Minnesota — Brian Robiskie, WR, Ohio State, Senior: The son of Falcons wide receiver coach Terry Robiskie, the Ohio State grad is considered one of the more NFL-ready wide receivers in this draft class. Bobby Wade led the Vikes with just 53 catches last season. There's always room for another set of hands.

55. Atlanta — Paul Kruger, DE, Utah, Junior: The Falcons add some depth to the defensive line with Kruger, the 23-year-old defensive end from the Sugar Bowl champion Utes. Kruger's a survivor, having bounced back from a near life-threatening automobile accident as a child and multiple stab wounds from a 2008 incident.

56. Miami — Kenny Britt, WR, Rutgers, Junior: Britt had a fantastic end to the season last year, accumulating over 1,000 yards and scoring six touchdowns in his final eight games. Britt might be the youngest player taken in this draft. He's a tough kid from Bayonne, N.J. Right up Bill Parcells' alley.

57. Baltimore — Alphonso Smith, CB, Wake Forest, Senior: The ACC's all-time leader in interceptions didn't wow anyone in the combine or on his pro day, but no doubt has a knack for the ball. Baltimore added Domonique Foxworth in the offseason, but the corner spot could use some help.

58. New England — James Casey, TE/WR, Rice, Sophomore: Casey and Jarrett Dillard formed one of the scarier receiver duos in college football last season. Casey caught 111 passes at the wideout spot, but will likely play tight end at the next level. A former seventh-round pick of the Chicago White Sox, Casey is one of the older players (24 years old) in the draft, is married and was a triple major with a 3.8 GPA at one of the better schools in the nation. Another high-character guy for Bill Belichick's locker room.

59. Carolina — Juaquin Iglesias, WR, Oklahoma, Senior: At 35 years of age, Muhsin Muhammad had a surprisingly productive season in '08. He's not the long-term answer at the No. 2 wideout, though. Sadly, it seems as though Dwayne Jarrett isn't either. Iglesias — a scoring machine at Oklahoma — might just be.

60. N.Y. Giants — Phil Loadholt, OT, Oklahoma, Senior: At 6-8, 332 pounds, Loadholt is one of the biggest linemen in the draft. The Giants have what is thought to be the best offensive line in the entire league. Right tackle Kareem McKenzie is getting up there in age.

61. Indianapolis — LeSean McCoy, RB, Pittsburgh, Sophomore: "Shady" has great vision and strong natural instincts. He'd be a nice addition that could spell Joseph Addai along with Mike Hart.

62. Tennessee — D.J. Moore, CB, Vanderbilt, Senior: Disappointing 40 times at both the combine and his pro day have hurt Moore's draft-day stock. Tennessee's starting cornerback situation appears to be set with Nick Harper and Cortland Finnegan, but the spot can certainly use some depth. Moore could end up being the steal of this draft at No. 62 overall.

63. Arizona — Shonn Greene, RB, Iowa, Junior: Running back is certainly an area of need for the Cardinals. Greene was a star at Iowa and would be an explosive addition to the Arizona backfield.

64. Pittsburgh — Duke Robinson, OG, Oklahoma, Senior: Two interior offensive linemen in the first two rounds for the Steelers? Sure, why not? The O-line is Pittsburgh's No. 1 need and Robinson adds interior help.

33. Detroit — Evander Hood, DT, Missouri, Senior: The Lions brought in Grady Jackson over the offseason. But he's not the long-term answer in the middle. Hood is. A star at Mizzou, the Lions would be more than happy to scoop him up 33rd overall.
