2014 NFL Draft Day Two Reactions: SEC Bloggers on the Second- and Third-Round Picks

A round-up of what our conference sites are saying after the latest installment in the NFL Draft

Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports

It was another good night for the SEC on Friday, as the second- and third-round picks were announced. So what do our SEC blogs make of the selections?

Philadelphia Eagles Select Jordan Matthews, Record Setting Vanderbilt WR, with the 42nd Pick of the NFL Draft: Matthews is the highest pick out of Vandy in six years. [Anchor of Gold]

The Chicago Bears Select Ego Ferguson 51st Overall: LSU players getting selected became something of a theme on Friday night. It started with Ferguson, who went a bit higher than most people expected. [And the Valley Shook]

The Cincinnati Bengals Select Jeremy Hill 55th Overall: Think about how high he might have gone if it weren't for the character questions. [And the Valley Shook]

2014 NFL Draft: Kony Ealy drafted by the Carolina Panthers: "While Michael Sam stole headlines during Mizzou's 12-2 run in 2013, Ealy was Missouri's best defensive end for most of the last half of the season." [Rock M Nation]

The Miami Dolphins Select Jarvis Landry 63rd Overall: See what I meant by a pattern developing? Landry was a key element to one of the most dynamic LSU offenses ever. [And the Valley Shook]

2014 NFL Draft: Justin Britt drafted 64th by the Seattle Seahawks: He was a two-star recruit, which doesn't disprove recruit rankings but does show that you don't have to be a four-start to be pro-caliber. [Rock M Nation]

Travis Swanson Drafted by the Detroit Lions: "Swanson played under contrasting styles in the Bobby Petrino offense and Bret Bielema offense. This vast experience in those schemes gives him the flexibility to adapt to many NFL teams' styles." [Arkansas Fight]

Mississippi State's Gabe Jackson is now an Oakland Raider: The first player off the board for the Bulldogs this year. [For Whom the Cowbell Tolls]

NFL Draft 2014: Donte Moncrief Drafted by Colts in 3rd Round: "Moncrief was arguably the best wide receiver to ever come through Oxford, and his name is littered across the Rebel record books despite his truncated stay." He also owns at least one marvelous bow tie. [Red Cup Rebellion]

Panthers Select Trai Turner 92nd Overall: Not bad for a guy that you could argue should have stayed around another year. [And the Valley Shook]
