With 31 picks complete in the 2016 NFL Draft, Day Two begins with the second round on Friday night and several very talented players still available on the draft board.

When will UCLA's Myles Jack come off the board? And Alabama's front seven defenders? What about Heisman Trophy winning running back Derrick Henry and Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook? Here is a scenario how the second round could play out.


32. Cleveland Browns: Myles Jack, LB, UCLA -- I'm not sure the Browns would take Jack here, but good chance Cleveland deals this pick with Jack being a possible option.

33. Tennessee Titans: Vonn Bell, S, Ohio State -- The Titans are searching for an upgrade at safety and have done their homework on the Ohio State defensive back.


34. Dallas Cowboys: Emmanuel Ogbah, DE, Oklahoma State -- After going running back in round one, the Cowboys likely address the pass rush here and Ogbah is on the short list.

35. San Diego Chargers: Jason Spriggs, OT, Indiana -- With the injury history of King Dunlap the Chargers would be wise to add more depth at offensive tackle.

36. Baltimore Ravens: Mackensie Alexander, CB, Clemson -- With zero career interceptions, Alexander fell out of the first round, but he won't have to wait very long on Day Two.

37. Kansas City Chiefs: Xavien Howard, CB, Baylor -- With Sean Smith leaving in free agency, the Chiefs will be looking for a cornerback to add to the rotation.

38. Jacksonville Jaguars: Noah Spence, DE/OLB, Eastern Kentucky -- The Jaguars are hoping to add more pass rush and Spence is a value pick this late in the draft and worth the risk.

39. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Kevin Dodd, DE, Clemson -- Some thought Dodd was in play for the Buccaneers in the first round, but are able to land him in the second.


40. New York Giants: Michael Thomas, WR, Ohio State -- Odell Beckham is entrenched as the No. 1 receiver, but the Giants are looking for a viable No. 2 receiving option.

41. Chicago Bears: A'Shawn Robinson, DL, Alabama -- The Bears continue to build the front-seven, especially with a talent like Robinson sliding to this pick.

42. Miami Dolphins: Derrick Henry, RB, Alabama -- Miami was hoping to land Elliott in the first round, but Henry is a nice consolation prize in the second round.

43. Tennessee Titans: Jarran Reed, DT, Alabama -- Tennessee lacks quality depth across the defensive line, especially at nose tackle where Reed is an instant contributor.

44. Oakland Raiders: Reggie Ragland, LB, Alabama -- The Raiders are looking for an upgrade at middle linebacker and Ragland is an NFL ready thumper.

45. Tennessee Titans: Braxton Miller, WR, Ohio State -- Although he will likely be a gadget player as a rookie, Miller will compete for starting reps by year two.

46. Detroit Lions: Jonathan Bullard, DL, Florida -- Ziggy Ansah is an impact player, but the Lions are looking to add more defensive end depth opposite him.


47. New Orleans Saints: Kendall Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech -- With Kennan Lewis' injuries, the Saints could use more cornerback insurance with a player like Fuller.

48. Indianapolis Colts: Kamalei Correa, DE/OLB, Boise State -- The Colts need to upgrade the pass rush and hybrid linebacker Correa fits Indianapolis' 3-4 base scheme.

49. Buffalo Bills: Connor Cook, QB, Michigan State -- Not only is Cook a possible long-term answer for the Bills, but he will push Tyrod Taylor for starting reps as a rookie.

50. Atlanta Falcons: Hunter Henry, TE, Arkansas -- Although he doesn't offer much as a blocker, Henry is a reliable pass-catcher in the Owen Daniels mold.

51. New York Jets: Christian Hackenberg, QB, Penn State -- Time will tell if Ryan Fitzpatrick re-signs, but the Jets are still hoping to find the quarterback of the future.

52. Houston Texans: Cody Whitehair, OL, Kansas State -- Houston has depth concerns across the offensive line and Whitehair has versatility at tackle, guard and center.


53. Washington Redskins: Andrew Billings, DT, Baylor -- The Redskins need to add depth at nose tackle and Billings is an ascending talent that can be groomed.

54. Minnesota Vikings: Nick Martin, OG, Notre Dame -- With the versatility to play center or guard, Martin helps the Vikings concerns across the interior of the line.

55. Cincinnati Bengals: Sterling Shepard, WR, Oklahoma -- The Bengals' top wide receiver options were off the board in round one, but Shepard is worth the wait.

56. Seattle Seahawks: Chris Jones, DT, Mississippi State -- Seattle is looking to get younger on the defensive line and Jones flashes first-round talent at times.

57. Green Bay Packers: Kentrell Brothers, LB, Missouri -- Brothers might not have ideal athleticism, but his instincts more than make up for his lack of speed.

58. Pittsburgh Steelers: Shilique Calhoun, DE/OLB, Michigan State -- Pass rusher Jarvis Jones is entering a contract year and James Harrison turns 38 years old next week.


59. Kansas City Chiefs: Caleb Benenoch, OL, UCLA -- The Chiefs need to add guard depth through the draft and Benenoch has intriguing athleticism.

60. New England Patriots: Kenneth Dixon, RB, Louisiana Tech -- The Patriots have a crowded running back depth chart, but could still use an upgrade.

61. New England Patriots: Sean Davis, CB/S, Maryland -- The Patriots have shown a great deal of interest in Davis, who provides corner/safety versatility.

62. Carolina Panthers: Will Redmond, CB, Mississippi State -- With Josh Norman now in Washington, cornerback shoots towards the top of Carolina's needs.

63. Denver Broncos: Su'a Cravens, LB, USC -- Despite some tweener traits and unimpressive testing numbers, Cravens is a smart, reliable player.
