    Follow me … don’t cost nothin’ @PeteFiutak

    There will be trades to screw this all up, but here are the right picks that make too much sense for each team in the second round.

    33. Tennessee
    OT T.J. Clemmings, Pitt – The Titans are all in with Marcus Mariota from Day One. Now it’s time to protect the franchise.

    34. Tampa Bay
    DT Eddie Goldman, Florida State – Lovie Smith passed on some terrific linemen to take Jameis. The defensive front will be addressed with Winston’s teammate, passing on Randy Gregory.

    35. Oakland
    CB Jalen Collins, LSU – The secondary has to be addressed several times throughout the rest of the draft. Corner is a must.

    36. Jacksonville
    RB Tevin Coleman, Indiana – It would be nice to give Blake Bortles a receiver to go to, but the ground attack has to be helped out. Now. The offensive line could be addressed.

    37. NY Jets
    OT Jake Fisher, Oregon – La’el Collins is by far the best offensive tackle still left on the board, but the Jets just can’t do it.

    38. Washington
    SS Landon Collins, Alabama – An absolute steal here for a defense that has to load up on defensive backs. The Redskins could move up to make sure no one else pulls ahead to take the thumping run stopper.

    39. Chicago
    OLB/DE Eli Harold, Virginia – There will be some though to messing around with Randy Gregory, but the defense will get the safer pure edge rusher.

    40. NY Giants
    LB Eric Kendricks, UCLA – The Giants had to have been ticked when Green Bay snagged Damarious Randall. The free safety would’ve been the ideal need pick, but grabbing a solid linebacker will be easy after addressing the O line with Ereck Flowers in the first.

    41. St. Louis
    WR Devin Smith, Ohio State – Does the offense need more weapons after taking Todd Gurley? Smith is the home run hitter who could help Nick Foles out even faster than the first round Georgia star.

    42. Atlanta
    TE Maxx Williams, Minnesota – The Falcons desperately needed a linebacker, and they got one in Vic Beasley. Now it’s time to give Matt Ryan a little more help with a receiving tight end. He’s not going to be Tony Gonzalez, but he’ll quickly become a factor.

    43. Cleveland
    WR Jaelen Strong, Arizona State – The Browns went heavy with the first two picks to fortify the lines with Danny Shelton and Cameron Erving. The receiving corps has to be helped out with this pick. The offense needs more playmakers. Fast.

    44. New Orleans
    QB Bryce Petty, Baylor – The Saints might be going for it now, but they’re not going to mess around with their future any longer. Petty has Brees-like potential with a few years of development. He’ll get it.

    45. Minnesota
    LB Benardrick McKinney, Mississippi State – The Vikings got their corner in Trae Waynes, and now it’s time to get their leader at linebacker. However, it’s going to drive them nuts that OT La’el Collins is out there, and they really can’t take him.

    46. San Francisco
    LB Denzel Perryman, Miami – This will be the first of a few linebacker picks to try replacing Patrick Willis and Chris Borland. Perryman will be a statistical star on the inside.

    47. Miami
    DE Preston Smith, Mississippi State – All of a sudden, finding more help for the outside of the defense is a must after the disastrous Dion Jordan pick just got worse. The Dolphins will pass on the sequel in Randy Gregory for Smith.

    48. San Diego
    WR Tyler Lockett, Kansas State – The do-it-all playmaker adds more flash to the receiving corps and could do more for the return game. Add him with Melvin Gordon, and all of a sudden, the offense looks far more dangerous.

    49. Kansas City
    OT Donovan Smith, Penn State – Big enough to potentially work at guard, and good enough to be tried out at right tackle, Smith will find a role on a line that needs more help.

    50. Buffalo
    DE Randy Gregory, Nebraska – The Bills have lots and lots of other needs, and they don’t need another pass rusher, but this is just so Rex Ryan. Gregory doesn’t have to be a star right away, and at this spot, he becomes an easy chance worth taking.

    51. Houston
    WR/TE Devin Funchess, Michigan – A good value pick here, the offense could use a hybrid type of receiver to be a part of the puzzle. The Texans will find a true wide receiver later.

    52. Philadelphia
    CB P.J. Williams, Florida State – As wacky as Chip Kelly is supposed to be, he’s going to come out of the first two rounds with a few solid prospects getting WR Nelson Agholor in the first round and taking a corner in the second.

    53. Cincinnati
    DT Jordan Phillips, Oklahoma – The Bengals got their offensive tackle of the future in Cedric Ogbuehi, and now it’s time to go after the defensive front. Phillips is the run-clogger who can help right away.

    54. Detroit
    WR Dorial Green-Beckham, Missouri/Oklahoma – It’s too perfect. Can DGB learn from his idol? Calvin Johnson could be the perfect mentor for a shoot-for-the-stars prospect. Watch the rest of the NFC North shudder in fear at the possibilities.

    55. Arizona
    DE Owamagbe Odighizuwa , UCLA – The Cardinals need a pass rushing hydrid, and there’s one right there for the taking. He’d be a starter from Day One.

    56. Pittsburgh
    LB Hau’oli Kikaha, Washington – The Steelers took a pass rusher in Bud Dupree, but they need more. Kikaha might have been a disappointment in the offseason workouts, but he’d play right away for a D that needs him.

    57. Carolina
    RB Ameer Abdullah, Nebraska – There aren’t any offensive tackles worth taking here. The Panthers need to get younger and more explosive at running back. That’s Abdullah.

    58. Baltimore
    CB Ronald Darby, Florida State – After going with a speed receiver in the first round in Breshad Perriman, the Ravens have to look at defensive back. Darby isn’t a bad value pick here.

    59. Denver
    OT La’el Collins, LSU – It’s a cheap chance worth taking. The Broncos might be in Win Now mode, and there’s a shot this pick could fizzle out fast depending on Collins’ circumstances, but if it all clears up, this is the type of pick that might put the Broncos over the top.

    60. Dallas
    RB Jay Ajayi, Boise State – The Cowboys will have their choice of several decent running back options. A pounding workhorse behind this line? It’ll be a perfect marriage.

    61. Indianapolis
    RB Duke Johnson, Miami – How scary is the Colt offense after taking Phillip Dorsett? It’ll be that much more freighting after getting his teammate for the backfield.

    62. Green Bay
    LB Paul Dawson, TCU – He might not have the right personality for Green Bay, but as a pure talent he’s exactly what the defense needs. He’s a first round talent, but the attitude concerns knocked him down this far. Green Bay will get a steal.

    63. Seattle
    WR Sammie Coates, Auburn – The Seahawks have done a nice job without top-shelf wide receivers, but now they need to ramp things up a bit more. A deep threat like Coates to go along with Jimmy Graham makes Russell Wilson unstoppable.

    64. New England
    G A.J. Cann, South Carolina – It might not be the sexiest pick for a team that needs wide receivers, but the Patriots love to secure the lines. Cann is the best guard in the draft – and much cheaper than Detroit paid for Laken Tomlinson.
