NEW YORK, NY - APRIL 28: NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell leads a moment of silence for the victims of the storms and tornados which struck Alamaba on April 27 and is joined on stage by the members of the 2011 Draft class and the 2011 Pro Football Hall of Fame class during the 2011 NFL Draft at Radio City Music Hall on April 28, 2011 in New York City.

One of the good things about having the NFL Draft being three days is that it gives experts and fans extra time to evaluate what happened and what is to come. Oh, and more mock drafts can be done between day one and day two. SB Nation's Mocking The Draft put together their mock draft for round two and they have three Mountain West players going in this round.
Seeing the Oakland Raiders pick Kaerpernick makes me chuckle since Al Daivs who loves the fast players said earlier today that the Raiders had Kaepernick rated as the top overall quarterback on their board.
According to Pro Football Talk, the New England Patroits are in a good spot to make a trade to teams that want Andy Dalton, Ryan Mallet or Colin Kaepernick since they hold the 33rd pick. Arizona is the only team that would be a logical trading partner with the Patriots, because the Bengals and Bills are right behind the Pats and either Dalton and Mallet will be there for their taking. However, the Cardinals are sitting at 38th and would need to trade with the Patriots to asure they get the player they want at 33.
NFL Network's Mike Mayock's top 10 players on the board goes like this:
- Da'Quan Bowers DE, Clemson
- Marvin Austin, DT, UNC
- Akeem Ayers, LB, UCLA
- Aaron Williams, CB, Texas
- Kyle Rudolph, TE, Notre Dame
- Ryan Mallet, QB, Arkansas
- Rahim Moore, S, UCLA
- Brooks Reed, DE, Arizona
- Lance Kendricks, TE, Wisconsin
- Stephen Paea, DT, Oregon State
No, Dalton or others on his top 10 best players available.
Make sure to check back tomorrow once other sites start putting together their mock drafts or at least re-rank the rest of the players.
