The Falcoholic's 2009 NFL Draft Live Blog, Second Round

New, comments

And we're back! The first day thread was starting to chug a little, so consider this your new thread for all things second round.

While you're here, start weighing in on who you think will be available for the Falcons in the second round. I don't know about you, but I'm starting to get nervous that we're going to find ourselves in no-man's land once more, with most of the best players in the second round off the board again.

At any rate, this is a glorious day. Raise a glass to Peria Jerry and follow me to freedom!

9:55 p.m.: With the last pick in the second round, the Broncos pick TE Richard Quinn. Very good blocker who isn't great at catching the ball, which makes him kind of a weird pick in the second.

It was a great first day of the draft for the Falcons, and I'll see you all back here as often as possible for tomorrow's action. I'll have a scouting report on William Moore up shortly, so be sure to weigh in.

9:48 p.m.: Cody Brown, a defensive end from Connecticut, is the pick here. They're telling me a talented kid, and he's got the numbers, but I'd have to watch tape to really tell you a lot about him. There have been some real surprises in the second round.

9:46 p.m.: There goes yet another pick in our little mock draft exercise. The Titans reach a bit for Sen'Derrick Marks, the sometimes unmotivated defensive tackle out of Auburn.

9:41 p.m.: Sean Smith is a steal for the Dolphins, and I am sweating my ass off. That is it.

9:38 p.m.: The Giants continue a very good draft (bastards stole Sintim!) by taking tackle William Beatty, an athletic left tackle out of Connecticut. Gotta give them props.

9:30 p.m.: Our detestable rivals in Carolina make another quality pick, with safety/cornerback Sherrod Martin. He may be able to step in as starter early on unless his nagging injuries catch up.

9:25 p.m.: Next up, the Patriots continue a very good draft by picking up huge offensive tackle Sebastian Vollmer. I'm a little surprised to see him go this early, but he fits well with their offensive line.

9:24 p.m.: The Ravens pick up Paul Kruger, who in addition to slashing your face off will also tackle your quarterback. Nice pickup for a team that alreayd had a very good defense.

9:19 p.m.: The Colts pick up Fili Moala at defensive tackle, which is a very solid pick. Lot of USC players in this draft.

9:12 p.m.: The Falcons select S William Moore, who is pretty much the best value still available at this point. Well-rounded safety who will compete with DeCoud to start and will likely be a starter at one of our two spots within a year or two. Very happy with this pick!

9:10 p.m.: Who is this guy? And why is he picking Phil Loadholt, who is awesome? Damn him. The Falcons are ON THE CLOCK!

9:07 p.m.: The Iggles pick running back LeSean McCoy, who is an excellent fit for their offense. Please, everyone pick offense so the Falcons can get who they want.

9:03 p.m.: David Veikune, potential outside linebacker and defensive end, goes to the Browns. We're getting to the point where I have legitimately never heard of some of these guys.

9:01 p.m.: The Bills pick Andy Levitra, who will definitely give them a surging lift. Oh, wait, his name is Levitre. My bad.

8:59 p.m.: I think the Dallas Cowboys just missed their pick. I think those were just mannequins in their draft room, honestly.

8:54 p.m.: Seattle picks Max Unger at center, which is a very solid pick, while some other team goes with some other guy with a really long name. I'm sorry, I was looking for more beer.

8:47 p.m.: Speaking of insane, the Broncos go with safety Darcel McBath. I think I speak for everyone here when I say "what....the...hell?"

8:43 p.m.: Al Davis is certifiably insane. Michael Mitchell? He sounds like he should be doing my taxes or mixing my drinks, not playing safety in the NFL.

8:41 p.m.: If I see this commercial where the dude with the face the size of a dinner platter tells me steroids are as American as apple pie, I'm going to go into a roid rage and break my brother's face. Or, you know, have another drink.

8:33 p.m.: Clint Sintim goes to the Giants, and I'm pissed. I will survive, but this is the official mancrush of The Falcoholic. I...I need a moment to grieve.

8:30 p.m.: GREAT pick for the Dolphins here. Pat White will fit in perfectly in the Wildcat, and the Dolphins are a dynamic offensive team. They're not going to be a lot of fun to play, that's for sure.

8:24 p.m.: Our earnest foes, the Carolina Panthers, got a truly awesome value in Everette Brown. He should've been picked in the 20s but made it all the way to 43. Incredible value, and I don't like it because of it.

8:17 p.m.: The Bills select CB Jairus Byrd, which is a very interesting pick. Love the name, too. Not sure he was the best CB on the board, though.

8:13 p.m.: And the Patriots follow up with CB Darius Butler. The Patriots are re-inventing the defense, so I gotta give them props. Their secondary has been a weakness for years.

8:10 p.m.: Welcome back, guys! The Patriots pick is in, and it is....DT Ron Brace! Very good choice there, as he's a run clogger, but I was nervous they'd go Sintim. He survives for another pick.
