Second Round | Picks 33 - 48

No. 33) CAR selects Ladd McConkey - WR, Georgia

The wide receiver position is a huge need for the Panthers, and McConkey's ability to get open and consistency as a pass-catcher could make him Bryce Young's number-one target early on.

No. 34) NE selects Xavier Legette - WR, South Carolina

After selecting Maye in the first round, the Patriots get the quarterback a true weapon in Legette, who is both a deep threat and a YAC machine.

No. 35) ARI selects Chop Robinson - EDGE, Penn State

The Cardinals addressed skill position needs in the first round and now find a twitchy and athletic pass rusher in Robinson, who is a little lean for an NFL edge but can develop into a problematic defender in the right scheme.

No. 36) WAS selects Tyler Guyton - OT, Oklahoma

After picking up Daniels second overall, the Commanders immediately address the trenches with Guyton, a raw and inexperienced prospect who nonetheless could be the answer at right tackle long term.

No. 37) LAC selects Kris Jenkins - DT, Michigan

It seems inevitable that the Chargers will pick up at least one Michigan player, starting here with Jenkins, who possesses the size and physicality that Harbaugh seems to covet, especially along the trenches.

No. 38) TEN selects Jordan Morgan - OT, Arizona

The Titans have a need at left tackle, and Morgan's extensive collegiate experience would make him an ideal candidate, but with shorter arms, he might fall into the guard position early in his career.

No. 39) CAR (via NYG) selects Marshawn Kneeland - EDGE, Western Michigan

After trading away Brian Burns - which netted this very selection - the Panthers address their pass rush with Kneeland, a heavy-handed pass rusher who should take a big step with a dramatic improvement in coaching and training.

No. 40) WAS (via CHI) selects Chris Braswell - EDGE, Alabama

The Commanders received this selection from the Bears in the Montez Sweat trade, and Washington ended up reinvesting the pick back into the position with Braswell, a productive pass-rusher who wins with strong technique and explosive hands.

No. 41) GB (via NYJ) selects Javon Bullard - S, Georgia

The Packers draft perhaps the best all-around safety in Bullard, who will be able to do anything asked of him lined up next to the recently signed Xavier McKinney.

No. 42) HOU (via MIN) selects Braden Fiske - DT, Florida State

The Texans could use some more help across their defensive interior, and Fiske is an athletic option who would provide penetration and run-stuffing up front.

No. 43) ATL selects Kamari Lassiter - CB, Georgia

After picking up an edge rusher, the Falcons double down on defense with Lassiter, a tall, handsy press corner who should round out Atlanta's secondary perfectly.

No. 44) LV selects Keon Coleman - WR, Florida State

Coleman's numbers from the scouting combine drew concern regarding the receiver's top-end speed, but here the Raiders feel good about adding a productive receiver who wins with route running and body position, skills often seen in more veteran players.

No. 45) NO (via DEN) Troy Franklin - WR, Oregon

The Saints need a running mate opposite of Chris Olave and Franklin's downfield ability makes him an interesting option for an offense trying to get the most out of Derek Carr.

No. 46) IND selects Patrick Paul - OT, Houston

Few teams covet offensive linemen more than the Colts, and Paul's lumbering frame makes him an interesting left tackle option to plug in next to Quenton Nelson, although it would likely displace 2023 starter Bernhard Raimann.

No. 47) NYG (via SEA) selects Kingsley Suamataia - OT, BYU

The Giants will probably debate on drafting an offensive lineman sixth overall, but here they ultimately elect to wait for a player like Suamataia, who could become the team's starting right tackle early on.

No. 48) JAX selects Brandon Dorlus - DT, Oregon

The Jaguars double-down on defensive additions with Dorlus, a versatile lineman who could play end, but will likely be a defensive tackle in clear passing situations.
