Winners and Losers on Day 2 of the NFL Draft

Winner: Dolphins

The Dolphins landed two premier players in the second round: Oregon safety Jevon Holland and Notre Dame lineman Liam Eichenberg. Both were spots of need and Eichenberg in particular could have been a first round pick.

Winner: Chargers

The Chargers are destroying this draft. They needed a cornerback and got an elite one in Asante Samuel Jr. Then they got a dynamic playmaking receiver in the third round when they selected Josh Palmer from Tennessee. They also added Tre’ McKitty, a Tight End who is a bit of a project but could be very productive.

Winner: Giants

The Giants traded down and still got a player that many thought they would take at No. 11 overall: Azeez Ojulari. Dave Gettleman is making trades and it feels so good!

Winner: Browns

The Browns made a trade up in the second round and landed Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, who was thought to be a mid first round pick. Great value and potentially a big time player on their defense. They also landed speedy receiver Anthony Schwartz in Round 3.

Winner: Cardinals

Ron. Dale. Moore. Enough said. The Cardinals got an absolutely electric receiver to add to their arsenal of weapons.

Loser: Rams

The Rams don’t need a wide receiver, yet they took their first pick in the draft and picked a 155 pound receiver Tutu Atwell. Some scout love Atwell and he can absolutely fly, but it does not fit a need for them.

Loser: Bengals

The Bengals desperately needed to address their offensive line and they did. But they traded down in the second round a took a lineman in Jackson Carmen who was ranked as a third round prospect. If they had stayed at No. 38, they could have selected Tevin Jenkins.

Loser: Seahawks

Another team that didn’t need a wide receiver took one. D’Wayne Eskridge could be a dynamic player, but where does he fit into an offense that has two elite receivers and no offensive line?
