Friday, April 29

Patriots keep adding picks

Raiders receive:
» Third-round pick (No. 92):
Joseph Barksdale
» Fourth-round pick (No. 125):
Taiwan Jones


Patriots receive:
» Seventh-round pick (No. 219):
Malcolm Williams
» 2012 second-round pick

Analysis: The Raiders moved up to No. 92 well before the pick was actually made. The result was the team's second lineman selected in two rounds (the other was Stefen Wisniewski). It's just another draft for the Patriots, who stockpiled more picks, now having added a first- and second-round pick for the 2012 draft.

Ravens, Eagles swap third-round picks

Ravens receive:
» Third-round pick (No. 85):
Jah Reid


Eagles receive:
» Third-round pick (No. 90):
Curtis Marsh
» Sixth-round pick (No. 191):
Jason Kelce

Analysis: A round after adding a receiver (Torrey Smith), the Ravens add another piece to the offense, this time along the line of scrimmage. Could Reid's addition mean Michael Oher makes move over to right tackle? The Eagles turned pick No. 90 into another defensive back.

Jags bulk up the line

Jaguars receive:
» Third-round pick (No. 76):
William Rackley


49ers receive:
» Third-round pick (No. 80):
Chris Culliver
» Sixth-round pick (No. 182):
Ronald Johnson

Analysis: The Jaguars make a move for one of the draft's bigger sleepers -- Rackley, who becomes just the ninth Lehigh player ever selected in the NFL draft.

Dolphins dig deep into bolstering run game

Dolphins receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 62):
Daniel Thomas


Redskins receive:
» Third-round pick (No. 79):
Leonard Hankerson
» Fifth-round pick (No. 146):
Dejon Gomes
» Seventh-round pick (No. 217):
Maurice Hurt

Analysis: The Dolphins' efforts to upgrade the rushing attack continue with the selection of Thomas, who was a productive between-the-tackles runner at Kansas State. The Redskins hope Hankerson can develop into a bona fide No. 1 receiver.

Texans get defensive with picks

Texans receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 60):
Brandon Harris


Patriots receive:
» Third-round pick (No. 73):
Stevan Ridley
» Fifth-round pick (No. 138):
Marcus Cannon

Analysis: The Texans had the NFL's lowest-rated passing defense in 2010 and have been extremely aggressive in rebuilding that unit. After selecting J.J. Watt and Brooks Reed to help Mario Williams with the pass rush, Houston added Harris to the back end.

Lions build up backfield

Lions receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 57):
Mikel Leshoure
» Fifth-round pick (No. 157):

» Fourth-round pick (No. 107):
Kris Durham
» Fifth-round pick (No. 154):
Richard Sherman
» Seventh-round pick (No. 205):
Lazarius Levingston

Analysis: A year after trading back into the late first round to select Jahvid Best, the Lions made another move to attain a running back. The Seahawks, meanwhile, added their second lineman in the draft after selecting James Carpenter in the first round.

Bears add necessary bulk to defensive front

Bears receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 53):
Stephen Paea


Redskins receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 62):
Traded to Dolphins
» Fourth-round pick (No. 127): Traded to Texans

Analysis: After the Bears considered moving up in the first round, they finally pulled the trigger on a player they hope can help fill the shoes of Tommie Harris, who was released by the team in February.

Colts continue to beef up O-line

Colts receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 49):
Ben Ijalana


Redskins receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 53):
Traded to Bears
» Fifth-round pick (No. 152): Traded to Texans

Analysis: After selecting Anthony Castonzo in the first round, the Colts continued to aggressively shore up their offensive line by moving up four spots in Round 2 for Ijalana, who projects as a guard at the next level.

49ers move in for Kaepernick

49ers receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 36):
Colin Kaepernick


Broncos receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 45):
Rahim Moore
» Fourth-round pick (No. 108):
Quinton Carter
» Fifth-round pick (No. 141): Traded to Packers

Analysis: NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora reports that the team was very persistent in trying to land Kaepernick, according to league sources.

Browns receive:
» First-round pick (No. 21):
Phil Taylor


Chiefs receive:
» First-round pick (No. 27):
Jonathan Baldwin
» Third-round pick (No. 70):
Justin Houston

Analysis: The switch back to a 4-3 base defense necessitated a move on the defensive line, which the Browns pulled off with the massive Taylor, who will fill the hole left by the departed Shaun Rogers. When pick No. 27 turned into No. 26 after the Ravens took a pass, the Chiefs added a receiver to team with Dwayne Bowe. More ...
