Round 2
PK(OVR)TEAMNAMEPOSSCHOOL
1(33)San FranciscoDavid BaasOGMichigan
 Baas should improve San Francisco's interior offensive line, but the 49ers have far greater needs, and it's surprising they chose to take an interior offensive lineman instead of a receiver or a safety here.
Complete analysis
2(34)ClevelandBrodney PoolDBOklahoma
 The Browns drafted safety Sean Jones out of Georgia in the second round last year, but he missed the season to injury. If Jones is healthy, he and Pool should develop into an excellent starting tandem.
Complete analysis
3(35)Philadelphia (from Miami)Reggie BrownWRGeorgia
 The Eagles got an excellent value for this second-round pick, and it gives them insurance in case the Terrell Owens contract situation worsens. Brown led Georgia in receptions the last two seasons, despite playing behind the more-heralded Fred Gibson.
Complete analysis
4(36)Tampa BayBarrett RuudLBNebraska
 The Buccaneers get a tough, instinctive linebacker who makes up for any deficiencies in athleticism with great smarts and terrific hustle.
Complete analysis
5(37)Detroit (from Tennessee)Shaun CodyDEUSC
 Cody is a first-round talent who slipped into the second because of concerns about his consistency. Nevertheless, Detroit did well to move up and take him.
Complete analysis
6(38)OaklandStanford RouttDBHouston
 Raiders owner Al Davis always has been in love with speed. Unfortunately, that's about all he's getting here. Routt was a track star at Houston, but he's a developmental prospect from a football standpoint.
Complete analysis
7(39)ChicagoMark BradleyWROklahoma
 The Bears stayed on offense with their second pick and once again filled a pressing need. Bradley has 4.4 speed and should bring life to both the passing game and special teams.
Complete analysis
8(40)New Orleans (from Washington)Josh BullocksDBNebraska
 The Saints added a versatile safety in Bullocks. He has excellent speed for his size and good overall quickness and athletic ability, but he doesn't play with enough of a mean streak, isn't physical at the point of attack and doesn't always fill hard in run support.
Complete analysis
9(41)Tennessee (from Detroit)Michael RoosOTEastern Washington
 Tennessee appeared to reach for a cornerback here when it could have addressed a need at offensive tackle with Khalif Barnes still on the board. Roos is a developmental prospect from a small school who will take a while before he's ready.
Complete analysis
10(42)DallasKevin BurnettLBTennessee
 With the team switching to the 3-4 defense, it needs as many front-seven defenders as it can get. Burnett flashes the ability to shed blocks quickly and has excellent range. He also has the speed to rush the passer and match up in coverage.
Complete analysis
11(43)NY GiantsCorey WebsterDBLSU
 The Giants didn't have great depth at corner heading into the draft, but Webster, who should compete for the nickel-back role, helps solve that problem.
Complete analysis
12(44)ArizonaJ.J. ArringtonRBCalifornia
 The Cardinals tried hard to deal for Buffalo's Travis Henry before the draft but to no avail. Instead they nab Arrington, rated by most as the best back not among the big three (Brown, Benson and Williams).
Complete analysis
13(45)Seattle (from Carolina)Lofa TatupuLBUSC
 Rated by some as a fourth- or fifth-round prospect, Tatupu nevertheless is hard to overlook when on the field. He has tremendous athleticism and could push for playing time as a rookie.
Complete analysis
14(46)Miami (from Kansas City)Matt RothDEIowa
 The Dolphins signed Vonnie Holliday in free agency, but at this point he's not really an every-down player. Roth not only gives the team depth, he's a first-round talent Miami landed in the second round, so he's a great value, as well.
Complete analysis
15(47)NY Jets (from Houston through Oakland)Mike NugentPKOhio State
 A kicker in the second round is enough to send most fans over the edge, but Nugent has the talent to be the exception to the rule, and the Jets clearly need to improve their kicking game.
Complete analysis
16(48)CincinnatiOdell ThurmanLBGeorgia
 Thurman is the best available linebacker and fills a need for the Bengals on the inside. He lasted this long because of some character concerns over a three-game suspension last season at Georgia.
Complete analysis
17(49)MinnesotaMarcus JohnsonOGMississippi
 Johnson is listed as a tackle, and he is versatile enough to line up there, but he is a far better fit at guard, so look for Minnesota to play him there.
Complete analysis
18(50)St. LouisRonald BartellDBHoward
 Bartell Jr. is a developmental prospect who really struggled in the Senior Bowl. But he has awesome potential because of his rare blend of height, bulk and speed.
Complete analysis
19(51)Green Bay (from New Orleans)Nick CollinsDBBethune-Cookman
 The Packers may have reached here, because Collins is a small-school developmental prospect who is very athletic but very raw. He has some learning to do before he becomes a regular in the NFL.
Complete analysis
20(52)JacksonvilleKhalif BarnesOTWashington
 Jacksonville's 2005 draft has been a roller coaster thus far. While drafting Matt Jones in the first round raised a lot of eyebrows, the Jaguars did very well to add Barnes, who has has the natural ability of a first-rounder.
Complete analysis
21(53)BaltimoreDan CodyLBOklahoma
 Cody slipped to the second round because of concerns about his clinical depression and the effect his medication has on him. However, Baltimore has just added a first-round talent in the second round if Cody's condition doesn't become an issue.
Complete analysis
22(54)Carolina (from Seattle)Eric SheltonRBLouisville
 Considering the durability issues surrounding starters Stephen Davis and DeShaun Foster, Shelton was a great value at a position of need.
Complete analysis
23(55)BuffaloRoscoe ParrishWRMiami (FL)
 Parrish is a good value late in the second round, but the Bills certainly had other positions of need they could have addressed with this pick.
Complete analysis
24(56)DenverDarrent WilliamsDBOklahoma State
 The second round is the time to take chances on highly talented prospects with some potential flags, and that's exactly what the Broncos did here. Williams has major character, durability and size concerns, but he's a gifted athlete with a lot of toughness and playmaking flair.
Complete analysis
25(57)NY JetsJustin MillerDBClemson
 The Jets knew they could trade back and still get a good cover corner prospect in the second round, but they couldn't have known they'd get this good a value.
Complete analysis
26(58)Green BayTerrence MurphyWRTexas A&M
 Murphy is a good value as a late-second round selection, but he's not a good fit for a Packers team that could have used upgrades along the defensive front seven.
Complete analysis
27(59)AtlantaJonathan BabineauxDTIowa
 There's a lot to like about this pick if you're a Falcons fan. The team took a chance with Roddy White in the first round but it paid off, as it gets the one-gap defensive tackle it needed here.
Complete analysis
28(60)IndianapolisKelvin HaydenDBIllinois
 Surprisingly enough, this is the Colts' second cornerback selection in two rounds. The good news is both could emerge as starters.
Complete analysis
29(61)San DiegoVincent JacksonWRNorthern Colorado
 Receiver is one of San Diego's most pressing needs, so it's not surprising they took one in the second round after spending two first-round picks on defense.
Complete analysis
30(62)PittsburghBryant McFaddenDBFlorida State
 Pittsburgh has done an excellent job of filling two if its top three needs thus far. McFadden is a Bill Cowher-type corner who excels in run support.
Complete analysis
31(63)PhiladelphiaMatt McCoyLBSan Diego State
 Outside linebacker isn't a significant need, but Philadelphia wouldn't mind upgrading the position on either side of the formation.
Complete analysis
32(64)Baltimore (from New England)Adam TerryOTSyracuse
 Baltimore did well to draft Terry, because Orlando Brown has struggled and the team needs someone to push him for playing time.
