By Chris Malumphy

With the first pick in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft the Houston Texans selected guard Xavier Su'a-Filo from UCLA. Following a trade with the Washington Redskins, the Dallas Cowboys picked Boise State defensive end Demarcus Lawrence. The Browns added Nevada guard Joel Bitonio. Quarterback Derek Carr of Fresno State was selected by the Oakland Raiders to challenge Matt Schaub. The Falcons took 6-6 defensive tackle Ra'Shede Hageman. The Buccaneers followed with tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins from Washington. USC wide receiver Marquise Lee provides the Jaguars and Blake Bortles with an interesting target. The Detroit Lions took linebacker Kyle Van Noy from Brigham Young. The Rams picked cornerback Lamarcus Joyner from Florida State. Vanderbilt wide receiver Jordan Matthews went to the Eagles who obtained the pick from the Titans. The New York Giants picked center Weston Richburg from Colorado State. Alabama tackle Cyrus Kouandjio will play for the Bills. Colorado wide receiver Paul Richardson will join the the Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks. The Pittsburgh Steelers continue to improve their defense by adding Stephon Tuitt from Notre Dame. After 46 picks had been made, the Washington Redskins finally make their first selection by taking Trent Murphy from Standford. Florida State nose tackle Timmy Jernigan was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens. Texas Tech tight end Jace Amaro will provide Geno Smith and Michael Vick with a new target in New York. Jeremiah Attaochu, a linebacker from Georgia Tech, was drafted by the San Diego Chargers.

LSU defensive tackle Ego Ferguson will try to help shore up the Bears defensive line. The Arizona Cardinals grabbed tight end Troy Niklas from Notre Dame. Fresno State wide receiver Davante Adams will catch passes from Aaron Rodgers in the near future. It took longer than ever before, but the first running back selected in the 2014 NFL draft Bishop Sankey from Washington who goes to the Tennessee Titans. LSU running back Jeremy Hill went next to the Bengals. The Broncos added yet another receiver by drafting Cody Latimer from Indiana. Once the running backs started coming off the board, they came in a hurry, and one of the best went to the already talent heavy San Francisco 49ers who selected Carlos Hyde from Ohio State. The Saints hoped to improve their defensive backfield by taking Stanley Jean-Baptiste a Nebraska cornerback. Andrew Luck gains a new blocker as the Colts select tackle Jack Mewhort of Ohio State with their first pick in the draft. Kony Ealy, a defensive end from Missouri, was picked by the Carolina Panthers. The Jaguars looked to Penn State to get receiver Allen Robinson and give Blake Bortles another new target. If he remains with the Patriots, Ryan Mallett will get some competition for the backup position behind Tom Brady since New England drafted quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo from Eastern Illinois who broke all Tony Romo's records at the school. The Dolphins picked LSU wide receiver Jarvis Landry. The last selection of the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft was tackle Justin Britt of Missouri who will join the Seattle Seahawks.
