For the draft's final two days, be sure to follow along with Mike Clay's NFL Draft Tracker, which updates each selection and also provides full details as each draft-day trade unfolds.
Adam Levitan recalls the most memorable moments of day one.
This is my mock projection of the next two rounds:
33. Jaguars -- Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib
Day One Addition(s): RT Luke Joeckel
Nassib is strongly rumored to be the top QB on Jacksonville's board.
34. 49ers -- Stanford TE Zach Ertz
Day One Addition(s): FS Eric Reid
Ertz is a pass-catching upgrade in the old Delanie Walker role.
35. Eagles -- Alabama NT Jesse Williams
Day One Addition(s): RT Lane Johnson
Philly's defense gets more physical by selecting immovable Williams.
36. Lions -- Florida State OT Menelik Watson
Day One Addition(s): RE Ezekiel Ansah
Offensive line is Detroit's biggest need after the Ansah pick.
37. Bengals -- Florida International S Johnathan Cyprien
Day One Addition(s): TE Tyler Eifert
The Bengals may have drafted Cyprien 21st had Eifert not fallen.
38. Cardinals -- North Carolina State QB Mike Glennon
Day One Addition(s): RG Jonathan Cooper
Carson Palmer is 33. Glennon becomes Bruce Arians' QB of the future.
39. Jets -- West Virginia QB Geno Smith
Day One Addition(s): CB Dee Milliner, DT Sheldon Richardson
The Jets' focus turns to offense on day two. Geno is their top QB.
40. Titans -- Florida State DE Tank Carradine
Day One Addition(s): RG Chance Warmack
Tennessee needs another pass rusher to mask its shaky secondary.
41. Bills -- Tennessee WR Justin Hunter
Day One Addition(s): QB E.J. Manuel
Hunter is the field stretcher Buffalo has lacked since Lee Evans' prime.
42. Raiders -- Kentucky OG Larry Warford
Day One Addition(s): CB D.J. Hayden
The Raiders are desperate for power blockers. Warford is a mauler.
43. Buccaneers -- Cincinnati TE Travis Kelce
Day One Addition(s): CB Darrelle Revis
Kelce is a fantastic all-around tight end and can start right away.
44. Panthers -- Boise State CB Jamar Taylor
Day One Addition(s): DT Star Lotulelei
After stealing Star, cornerback leaps atop Carolina's list of needs.
45. Chargers -- Arkansas-Pine Bluff LT Terron Armstead
Day One Addition(s): RT D.J. Fluker
GM Tom Telesco isn't finished adding talent to a brutal offensive line.
46. Bills -- Kansas State ILB Arthur Brown
The Bills add physicality at inside 'backer by picking thumper Brown.
47. Cowboys -- South Carolina S D.J. Swearinger
Day One Addition(s): G/C Travis Frederick
With the O-Line squared away, safety is Dallas' top remaining need.
48. Steelers -- Alabama RB Eddie Lacy
Day One Addition(s): OLB Jarvis Jones
Lacy is the back the Steelers hoped Jonathan Dwyer would be.
49. Giants -- Notre Dame ILB Manti Te'o
Day One Addition(s): LG Justin Pugh
Te'o is good value here for the middle linebacker-needy G-Men.
50. Bears -- USC QB Matt Barkley
Day One Addition(s): G/T Kyle Long
The Bears put contract-year QB Jay Cutler on notice with this pick.
51. Redskins -- Tennessee Tech WR Da'Rick Rogers
Day One Addition(s): None. See RG3 trade.
Mike Shanahan could envision Rogers as his next Brandon Marshall.
52. Patriots -- SMU DE Margus Hunt
Day One Addition(s): None. Traded out.
The Pats would've considered Hunt had they stayed the 29th pick.
53. Bengals -- North Carolina RB Giovani Bernard
Bernard adds playmaking ability to a backfield that badly needs it.
54. Chiefs (Trade with Dolphins) -- LSU ILB Kevin Minter
Day One Addition(s): LT Eric Fisher
After trading Branden Albert, the Chiefs acquire a plug-and-play starter.
55. Packers -- UCLA RB Johnathan Franklin
Day One Addition(s): RE Datone Jones
GM Ted Thompson can shore up running back long term with Franklin.
56. Seahawks -- San Diego State TE Gavin Escobar
Day One Addition(s): WR Percy Harvin
Long and athletic, Escobar creates mismatches in the passing game.
57. Texans -- Connecticut ILB Sio Moore
Day One Addition(s): WR DeAndre Hopkins
Moore could be a day-one starter next to Brian Cushing inside.
58. Broncos -- Michigan State RB Le'Veon Bell
Day One Addition(s): DT Sylvester Williams
Bell can pass block, which is critical in Peyton Manning's offense.
59. Patriots -- California WR Keenan Allen
The receiver-needy Pats can't pass up the value of Allen at No. 59.
60. Falcons -- Texas A&M DE Damontre Moore
Day One Addition(s): CB Desmond Trufant
Moore needs to get stronger, but he dominated in the SEC.
61. 49ers -- Ohio State DT Johnathan Hankins
Hankins adds bulk and depth to San Francisco's thin defensive line.
62. Ravens -- USC WR Robert Woods
Day One Addition(s): SS Matt Elam
Woods is a classic Z receiver and perfect complement to Torrey Smith.
