After the NFL Draft we had a look at the Eastbay Combine Videos of the First Round Picks. Now we’ll dive into the Round 2 picks. Kicking off the 2nd round were the previously 1-15 St. Louis Rams. They decided to go with University of Indiana Offensive Lineman Roger Saffold. He will be a nice addition to try to protect #1 overall pick Sam Bradford.
With pick 51 overall the Minnesota Vikings took Stanford Running Back and 2009 Hesiman Trophy Runner-Up Toby Gerhart. Gerhart lost the Heisman Trophy by only 28 points (the smallest margin of victory in the history of the award). In his senior season Toby rushed 343 times for 1,871 yards and 27 touchdowns. He will team with stud RB Adrian Peterson to man the Viking backfield this season.
With the next pick, the Steelers took Defensive End Jason Worilds who played college ball for the Virginia Tech Hokies. Worilds brings a ton of speed and quickness to the table for the Steelers. They will look to develop him into a strong, disruptive pass rusher in Pittsburgh.
At 53 overall the New England Patriots selected Jermaine Cunningham from Florida. Although he played behind a lot of great talent for the Gators, Bill Belichick took him for his versatility and for the possibility of joining the Patriots LB rotation.
