The day after the Jacksonville Jaguars selected a potential franchise quarterback to open the NFL draft, the team turned their attention to the other side of the ball.
Jacksonville picked Georgia cornerback Tyson Campbell on Friday to kick off a busy night of drawing. The teams have made their selections for the second and third rounds and will return to action on Saturday to complete the draft with rounds 4 through 7.
Campbell, 21, started 24 games in three seasons with Georgia. He was a five-star recruit from Florida high school and was ranked second best cornerback in his class behind only Patrick Surtain Jr., who was ranked 9th overall by the Denver Broncos on Thursday night.
The New York Jets followed, followed by Ole Miss wide receiver Elijah Moore with the second choice of the second round in 34th place overall. The Broncos took North Carolina back to 35th with Javonte Williams (NYSE :), the Miami Dolphins picked Oregon Safety Jevon Holland in 36th, and the Eagles picked Alabama Center Landon Dickerson in 37th.
The New England Patriots maintained their strong pipeline with Alabama when they picked Crimson Tide Defensive Tackle Christian Barmore with the sixth round two pick. Barmore will reunite with college teammate Mac Jones, who New England moved into 15th place overall in the first round.
Florida state cornerback Asante Samuel Jr. had to wait until the middle of round two for the Los Angeles Chargers to pick him 47th overall. Samuel Jr. led the Seminoles with three interceptions and served as team captain in 2020 before signing out after eight games.
Notre Dame pass rusher Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah slipped to 52nd when the Cleveland Browns picked him. Many design analysts had predicted the former Fighting Irish Star as the first choice after a junior season in which he was first-team All-American Player of the Year on the Atlantic coast and won the Butkus Award.
Kyle Trask was the only quarterback on Round 2. The former Florida Gators' caller was selected by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to study under Tom Brady after throwing 4,283 yards, 43 touchdowns and eight interceptions with the Gators in 2020.
