Ten Best Available After Round Two Of The NFL Draft
One more day.
North Carolina QB Sam Howell
It's been a bizarre draft when it comes to the quarterback position and Sam Howell is still on the board. Howell has a lot of experience from his time at North Carolina and could compete immediately for a starting spot. Seattle hasn't pulled the trigger on a QB yet, so watch for them to grab Howell at 109.
Oklahoma DT Perrion Winfrey
Perrion Winfrey has a lot of upside that could make him a top interior pass rusher in the NFL. His quickness and aggressive hands were why he recorded 5.5 sacks for the Sooners in 2021. A lot of teams could use depth on the interior defensive line like the Giants at 112 or the Browns at 123.
Texas San Antonio CB Tariq Woolen
Cornerback is a super deep position in this draft and there are a few guys still available that could be solid rotational players; Tariq Woolen is one of those guys. Woolen is 6'4, 205 pounds which is an extremely rare build for a cornerback in the league. With his size and 4.26 40 yard dash time, he's bound to be a solid player.
Minnesota OT Daniel Faalele
Faalele is a mountain of man; he stands at 6'9, 380 pounds and moves very well for a person of his stature. He's super swift in the passing game and in the run game he works tremendous on double teams displacing defensive linemen. Offensive line depth is alway a concern and there are a lot of teams in the market for a dude with Faaleles size.
Cincinnati CB Coby Bryant
Much like Woolen, Bryant has the potential to be a very good rotational corner in this league. Bryant has a lot of similar traits to Josh Norman; he breaks on the ball quickly, sinks his hips well, and possesses great ball skills. New England at 115, San Francisco at 136, or Baltimore at 139 would be great suitors.
Coastal Carolina TE Isaiah Likely
Likely is on the small side for an NFL tight end, but he'd be a solid number two; a second fiddle to a primary blocking tight end. His deficiencies in the run game are made up by his ability to catch the football. The former Chanticleer has very strong hands and is a shifty route runner.
Kentucky G Darian Kinnard
Kinnard plays with a chip on his shoulder; a real mean mauler in the trenches. He stands at 6'5, 322 pounds and will be able to play either right tackle or both guard positions in the league. The best aspect of Kinnards game is his heavy punch that he delivers in the run game; almost like a taser for defensive linemen.
Memphis WR Calvin Austin III
Calvin Austin is small, yet possesses big play ability. At 5'7, 170 pounds, Austin ran a 4.3 second 40 yard dash. The Memphis alum is great at beating press coverage with his quick first step, and if a corner doesn't get their hands on him, he'll run right by them. He has all the potential in the world to be a solid number two or three because of his reliable hands and burst.
Texas A&M RB Isaiah Spiller
The first running back didn't come off the board until day two, and in day three I believe we'll see a run on them headlined by Spiller. He's a true dual threat back as he rushed for 1,011 yards and caught 25 passes for 189 yards. Denver at 116, Tennessee at 143, and Chicago at 150 are all spots I could see Spiller landing.
Iowa State DE Eyioma Uwazurike
Edge was arguably the best position group in the draft so it's not a surprise to see an efficient player like Uwazurike still on the board. In 2021, the 6'6 pass rusher tallied 9 sacks. He has great power moves that start with his intense and strong punch. Baltimore at 119, Miami at 125, and Green Bay at 132 are all viable landing spots for the Iowa State Cyclone.
