Looking Ahead to the 2nd Round

New, comment

Now that the Packers selected RB Marshawn Lynch in the 1st round of the SB Nation mock draft, it's time to look ahead to the 2nd round. This is arguably the most important selection in the draft for NFL teams because you are still drafting a high caliber of player, depending on the depth of this year's draft it can be someone just as good as a late first round pick, and he will play under an affordable rookie contract for a few seasons.

I've still never seen an instance where GM Ted Thompson has traded up in the second round, but he traded down out of two high second round picks last season. I'll start going over a few potential names over the next couple of days and I should be drafting sometime early next week.
