Day one of the 2018 NFL Draft is over. This year’s draft was expected to be an exciting one and it didn’t disappoint. A record four quarterbacks were taken in the top ten picks. There were six trades - one of them including the Bucs.
With three picks now in the second round, Tampa has plenty of options to choose from after further solidifying the defensive line with first-round pick Vita Vea.
If your team didn’t impress you in the first round, hopefully they can make up for it in the second round.
(33). Cleveland Browns - Harold Landry, DE, Boston College. The Browns are thrilled to line Landry up on the other side of Myles Garrett.
(34). New York Giants - Will Hernandez, OG, UTEP. Saquon Barkley needs running room and Eli Manning needs protection. The pick is an easy one.
(35). Cleveland Browns from Houston Texans - Tyrell Crosby, OT, Oregon. The Browns got their quarterback and cornerback in round one. Now they need someone to replace Joe Thomas.
(36). Indianapolis Colts - Sam Hubbard, DE, Ohio State. The Colts get their pass rusher in the fearless Hubbard.
(37). Indianapolis Colts from New York Jets - Derrius Guice, RB, LSU. Andrew Luck gets more help on offense.
(38). Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Josh Jackson, CB, Iowa. Tampa Bay address their needs in the defensive backfield after skipping out on Derwin James.
(39). Chicago Bears - Courtland Sutton, WR, SMU. When you have a young, developing quarterback - you need to get him as much help as you can.
(40). Denver Broncos - Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia. With just two running backs on the roster, Denver grabs a potential three-down back in Chubb.
(41). Oakland Raiders - Lorenzo Carter, LB, Georgia. Two Bulldogs go back-to-back after the Raiders get Khalil Mack some help.
(42). Miami Dolphins - Dallas Goedert, TE, South Dakota State. Adam Gase gets his athletic tight end for his offense.
(44). Washington Redskins - Ronald Jones, RB, USC. Shocked to see him fall this far, Washington quickly swipes the talented runner.
(45). Green Bay Packers - Christian Kirk, WR, Texas A&M. He won’t be Jordy Nelson right away, but it’s a great start.
(46). Cincinnati Bengals - Donte Jackson, CB, LSU. The Bengals need a cornerback to help keep up with the offensive improvements the NFC North.
(47). Arizona Cardinals - Martinas Rankin, OT, Mississippi State. New quarterback Josh Rosen needs someone to watch his back.
(48). Los Angeles Chargers - Mason Rudolph, QB, Oklahoma State. Yep, it’s time to start finding the heir apparent to Philip Rivers.
(49). Indianapolis Colts from New York Jets through Seattle Seahawks - Brian O’Neill, OT, Pittsburgh. The Colts are going to make sure Luck stays upright when he comes back.
(50). Dallas Cowboys - Mike Gesicki, TE, Penn State. Dak Prescott needs a big redzone target now that Dez Bryant is gone.
(51). Detroit Lions - Harrison Phillips, DT, Stanford. Detroit grabs the talented lineman out of Stanford to help out Ziggy Ansah.
(52). Baltimore Ravens - James Daniels, C, Iowa. Ryan Jensen’s replacement is the road-grader out of the Midwest.
(53). Tampa Bay Buccaneers from Buffalo Bills - Justin Reid, S, Stanford. The Bucs further solidify the defensive backfield.
(54). Kansas City Chiefs - Tim Settle, DT, Virginia Tech. The Chiefs need a big body to clog the middle of their defense.
(55). Carolina Panthers - Austin Corbett, OG, Nevada. Carolina loves to run the ball and Corbett will help them immediately.
(56). Tampa Bay Buccaneers from Buffalo Bills through Los Angeles Rams - Braden Smith, OG, Auburn. Even though Quenton Nelson would have been the ideal pick, Tampa is happy to grab Smith.
(57). Tennesse Titans - Jesse Bates, S, Wake Forest. Bates is an instant upgrade over Johnathan Cyprien and will make a great compliment to Kevin Byard’s game.
(58). Atlanta Falcons - Maurice Hurst, DT, Michigan. Head Coach Dan Quinn is ecstatic to add another disruptive defensive linemen to his rotation.
(59). San Francisco 49ers from New Orleans Saints - Ronnie Harrison, S, Alabama. John Lynch gets his safety to replace Eric Reid.
(60). Pittsburgh Steelers - Malik Jefferson, ILB, Texas. The Steelers got their safety in round one. With Ryan Shazier already out for 2018, they need help at linebacker.
(61). Jacksonville Jaguars - Deion Cain, WR, Clemson. Jacksonville gets a burner to take the safety out of the box for Leonard Fournette.
(62). Minnesota Vikings - Connor Williams, OT, Texas. It’s debatable whether Williams will play tackle or guard, but regardless, the Vikings could use either one.
(63). New England Patriots - Arden Key, DE, LSU. If anyone can correct past mistakes, it’s the Patriots.
(64). Cleveland Browns from Philadelphia Eagles - D.J. Chark, WR, LSU. The Browns grab a speedy receiver for Baker Mayfield.
