NEW YORK -- An unusual first round is history. We now turn our attention to Part II of this NFL draft trilogy with the second and third round Friday night at Radio City Music Hall.
For many teams, the first-round pick addressed a primary area of need on the roster. Some teams, however, went in surprising directions that left trouble spots unaddressed.
For those teams, Friday becomes about tending to matters of common sense. Here are six teams that should have obvious target areas enter Round 2.
New York Jets
New York added two potential impact players in cornerback Dee "Revis Who?" Milliner and defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson. It's now essential that general manager John Idzik focuses on the other side of the ball. The Jets need playmakers on offense, and talent is on the board at receiver, running back and tight end.
Remember, John Abraham is out the door, taking with him 68.5 sacks in seven seasons with Atlanta. Even with Abraham last season, the Falcons were a subpar unit getting to the quarterback, ranking 28th in the league with just 29 sacks. Finding someone who can get to the passer will make the whole defense better.
Green Bay Packers
New England Patriots
Now the work begins, and the Patriots would be wise to focus on wide receiver Friday. The departure of Wes Welker and Brandon Lloyd has left the position with a dearth of talent, and the failed pursuit of Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders showed New England is fully aware it has a need.
