2013 NFL Draft Live Blog and Open Thread: Day Two

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

Day two of our live blog!

Here we go, it's the second day of the NFL Draft and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will get to finally make their first pick. They have plenty of needs and could target a variety of players with the 11th pick in the second round. Cornerback, tight end, defensive lineman, linebacker and even wide receiver are positions the Buccaneers could be looking at at this point.

We'll be with you throughout the second and third round, and we'll be providing analysis when they end, of course. Let's go!

This is the second thread, the first thread can be found here.


9:13 p.m.: The pick is Mike Glennon of NC State. Here's the story.

9:08 p.m.: The Jets take guard Brian Winters, which means the Bucs are on the clock.

9:04 p.m.: The St. Louis Rams just took safety T.J. McDonald while the Tennessee Titans grabbed cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson. The Jets are on the clock, and the Bucs are on the clock after them.

9:01 p.m.: There goes Tyrann Mathieu to the Arizona Cardinals. Maybe the most controversial player in the draft, he had both on- and off-field concerns dropping him down. Three picks until the Bucs are on the clock.

8:58 p.m.: Run on cornerbacks continues here, with Leon McFadden going to the Cleveland Browns.

8:53 p.m.: Bennie Logan just went to the Philadelphia Eagles, while the Oakland Raiders took Sio Moore. One player to pay attention to: Damontre Moore. He's falling but has talent.

8:46 p.m.: Travis Kelce goes off the board. He was probably the second-best cornerbacks but had a mass of character questions. Chiefs taking the chance on him. The Jaguars took Dwayne Gratz next, while the Lions went with Larry Warford.

8:38 p.m.: Christine Michael rounds out the second round, going to the Seattle Seahawks. Ridiculously talented back, but he has some off-field concerns.

8:34 p.m.: And there goes another draft day faller off the board in Eddie Lacy, going to the Packers.

8:29 p.m.: Robert Alford out of Southeast Louisiana. A talented cornerback, but a bit of a wildcard. The Falcons are desperately trying to upgrade their secondary. Too bad they still don't have a pass rush. Meanwhile, the Patriots took WR Aaron Dobson.

8:17 p.m.: Safety D.J. Swearinger goes to the Houston Texans. Montee Ball to the Broncos means Eddie Lacy keeps falling. That medical has to be pretty bad.

8:12 p.m.: Vance McDonald just went to the 49ers, while the Baltimore Ravens took linebacker Arthur Brown. Finally he goes off the board. We're getting to the end of the second round now, so the Bucs could make their pick soon.

8:04 p.m.: Jamar Taylor for the Dolphins. We're seeing a run on cornerbacks now, started by the Buccaneers intriguingly.

8:02 p.m.: The Bengals just took Margus Hunt. Intriguing, and the Bucs were rumored to be interested.

7:57 p.m.: And another linebacker goes off the board with Jamie Collins to the Patriots. Errr...seriously, what's wrong with Arthur Brown?

7:52 p.m.: The Washington Redskins have taken cornerback David Amerson, while the Chicago Bears took linebacker Jonathan Bostic. What, exactly, is wrong with Arthur Brown?

7:44 p.m.: I don't pay attention for a couple of picks and I miss two? Wow. Cardinals took Kevin Minter before, while the Cowboys just took tight end Gavin Escobar (a possible Bucs target) and the Steelers got running back Le'Veon Bell. And the Giants took defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins. Yeesh.

7:36 p.m.: The Buffalo Bills take Kiko Alonso. Why does Arthur Brown keep falling?

7:32 p.m.: The Panthers took DT Kawann Short. They really want to shore up that defensive line.

7:27 p.m.: The Bucs have selected Johnthan Banks. Here's our story.

7:25 p.m.: Menelik Watson to the Raiders. The Buccaneers have made their pick and will not trade down.

7:20 p.m.: The Bills take Robert Woods out of USC. Very professional receiver. Really liked him, but there are a number of receivers like him in this draft.

7:16 p.m.: And there goes the best defensive end in the draft for my money in Tank Carradine to the 49ers. The rich just keep getting richer.

7:06 p.m.: And the Mark Sanchez era ends with a whine. The New York Jets just took Geno Smith.

7:03 p.m.: And there goes Manti Te'o, so we can stop worrying about him going to the Buccaneers. We're now just five picks away from the Bucs' pick. If they don't trade down.

6:59 p.m.: The Bengals just took the first running back in the draft with Gio Bernard. First time since 1963 no running back went in the first round. Meanwhile, the Chargers have traded up with the Arizona Cardinals. Who are they targeting?

6:54 p.m.: The Detroit Lions just took cornerback Darius Slay. Interesting that he's going this early. Still plenty cornerbacks on the board for the Bucs.

6:52 p.m.: The Bengals are re-signing Andre Smith per Adam Schefter. So there's that.

6:48 p.m.: And there goes Zach Ertz. Travis Kelce and Gavin Escobar are the top tight ends on the board now.

6:42 p.m.: The Titans take Justin Hunter out of Tennessee. Keep him local. Hunter may be the most physically gifted receiver in the draft. And they gave up a third-rounder and a seventh rounder for that? Damn.

6:40 p.m.: The Tennessee Titans have traded up. Why? No one knows (yet).

6:36 p.m.: The Jaguars have selected safety Jonathan Cyprien. You could argue he was the best safety in the draft. Great pick.

6:34 p.m.: And we're off again! The Jacksonville Jaguars are on the clock.

6:28 p.m.: Bill Polian blasted Tyrann Mathieu:

5:54 p.m.: We're ready for the live blog! The second round of the draft starts in just over half an hour.
