WR Cody Latimer (Indiana University) - Denver Broncos
- Latimer was highly touted coming into the draft, with many believing he would go in the first round. The fact that he fell to the second round would have been a steal for a team to begin with, but the fact that he fell to the Broncos makes this pick that much better. Peyton Manning is going to make this kid a star for the next few years and provide a leeway to a long career for the ex Hoosier. He has a big frame and has great hands, and playing with Peyton Manning makes the Latimer-Broncos relationship a perfect match.
C Marcus Martin (USC) – San Francisco 49ers
- The first thing you notice when watching Martin’s tape are his feet. For a center, having great feet is a key element to being successful. And not only are the 49ers in need of a center, but he will come in right away and have a veteran line surrounding him that can help groom and bring him along quickly. The 49ers already have one of the best offensive lines in the league, and Martin can come in right away and help them keep it that way.
WR Davante Adams (Fresno State) – Green Bay Packers
- I love everything about this pick by the Packers. With the best back shoulder throwing quarterback in the league, Adams will be primed to have not just an immediate impact, but an "Offensive Rookie of the Year" caliber year. As an ex prep basketball star, Adams has great body control, long arms, and can jump through the roof. A lot of teams would have been good fits for him to land, but this is a great fit.
DE Stephon Tuitt (Notre Dame) – Pittsburgh Steelers
-Great, great pickup for the Steelers with Tuitt in the second round. They will be able to move him all over the line but he should dominate playing the 5-technique in their 3-4 scheme. He is powerful and has long arms that you love to see at his position. I thought the Shazier pick in the first round was a good fit, but adding Tuitt was a great move by Coach Tomlin and Pittsburgh’s front office, they’re going to be fun to watch in this system.
