Pete Prisco, CBSSports.com Senior Writer - Round 2 No. 33: Rams select: Brian Quick, WR, Appalachian State Grade STL.gif This is a bit of a reach for a raw kid. He does have size and can run, but he has lapses and doesn't always run great routes. Boom or bust. B- No. 34: Colts select: Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford Grade IND.gif I love this pick. He will be a star. He is the perfect guy for the modern NFL passing game. He will be a star. A No. 35: Ravens select: Courtney Upshaw, DE, Alabama Grade BAL.gif The Ravens traded down and got a heck of a player. That's why Ozzie Newsome and Eric DeCosta are ranked among the best as personnel men. Nice pick. A No. 36: Broncos select: Derek Wolfe, DT, Cincinnati Grade DEN.gif They needed help at defensive tackle, but why not Worthy? I liked him better. Wolfe is a little bit of a reach. Worthy was a better choice. C No. 37: Browns select: Mitchell Schwartz, DT, California Grade CLE.gif I actually have to applaud the Browns for this pick. He is a tough guy. Nice pick. B+ No. 38: Jaguars select: Andre Branch, DE, Clemson Grade JAC.gif They needed to get a defensive end and they did. I really like this pick. He was an underrated player in this draft. B+ No. 39: Rams select: Janoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama Grade STL.gif This is a Jeff Fisher pick. It can really pay off if he stays out of trouble. Big if. Risky. C-

No. 40: Panthers select: Amini Silatolu, OG, Midwestern State Grade CAR.gif This is a small-school tough guy who has a chance to be a Mike Iupati mauler. Level of competition is a concern. B
