SANTA CLARA — This is the live blog for Day 2 of the 2016 NFL draft. I will update this frequently with information and analysis as the picks roll in.
4:00 Bold prediction: The 49ers will trade into the second round and draft LSU inside linebacker Deion Jones.
4:12 Browns take Oklahoma State edge-rusher Emmanuel Ogbah with Pick 32. Great pick. Should have been a first-rounder.
4:13 How far will Myles Jack fall, and will he fall to the 49ers in Round 3? And would the Niners pass on him?? I think they would. Trent Baalke can’t afford to draft any medical redshirts. He could get fired before they ever see the field.
4:19 The Titans take edge-rusher Kevin Dodd, who isn’t half the player Ogbah is. Teams aren’t touching inside linebackers.
4:22 Scratch that. The Cowboys take Notre Dame inside linebacker Jaylon Smith with Myles Jack on the board. Are teams more concerned with Jack’s knee than Smith’s knee? That would be fascinating.
4:28 The Jaguars trade up two spots with the Ravens to take UCLA linebacker Myles Jack. Their first round pick was Jalen Ramsey. They have the best draft so far.
4:30 It’s official: Kansas State guard Cody Whitehair is available at Pick 37.
4:35 Chiefs take Mississippi State defensive end Chris Jones, whom I consider one of the top-15 players in the draft. The Niners could have stayed at Pick 37 and taken him had they taken Jack Conklin with Pick 7.
4:41 The Ravens trade down again, this time with the Dolphins who take Baylor CB Xavien Howard, one of may favorite corners in the draft. He and Byron Maxwell will make an excellent duo.
4:44 The Bucs take Eastern Kentucky defensive end Noah Spence, who may be the best edge-rusher in the entire draft. He falls to Round 2 because he failed drug tests a a few years ago at Ohio State.
4:48 The Giants draft slot receiver Sterling Shepard, which probably means Victor Cruz is done.
4:52 The Bills trade up to Pick 41 and take Alabama inside linebacker Reggie Ragland. All of the top inside linebackers have been picked. Now, teams will start drafting linebacker/safety hybrids.
4:59 The Ravens take Boise state outside linebacker Kamalei Correa with Pick 42. Raiders pick at No. 44. I think they’ll take USC S/LB Su’a Cravens.
5:01 Titans take Penn State nose tackle Austin Johnson. Raiders on the clock. A linebacker would make the most sense, although they also could take a defensive tackle, such as Florida’s Jonathan Bullard.
5:06 The Raiders defensive tackle Jihad Ward. I like this pick. He can play 3-technique or 5-technique. Gives the Raiders defense options.
5:10 Titans take Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry. With Pick 45. If Deion Jones falls 10 more picks, I think the Niners will trade up for him.
5:36 With the Pick 50, the Seahawks pick Alabama defensive tackle Jaran Reed. He will replace Brandon Mebane.
5:37 Just sat in the same room as Arik Armstead and DeForest Buckner. Armstead is ripped. Makes Buckner look small.
5:46 The Jets take Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg with Pick 51. Terrible, but at least they didn’t take Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook. Cook would have been even worse.
5:49 The Falcons take Deion Jones. Didn’t think he’d get picked that high. Now the 49ers most likely will target Clemson ILB B.J. Goodson in Round 3.
6:03 Bengals take wide receiver Tyler Boyd. Great complement for A.J. Green.
6:06 The Bears take Cody Whitehair, the best guard in the draft.
6:17 With Pick 59, the Bucs select a kicker — Robert Aguayo from Florida State.
6:24 Michigan State edge-rusher Shilique Calhoun is still available.
6:27 The Saints trade up for Pick 61 and take Ohio State safety Vonn Bell.
6:28 The 49ers are going to take Connor Cook, right? Ugh.
6:32 The Panthers take Samford CB James Bradberry to replace Josh Norman.
6:35 With the final pick in Round 2, the Broncos take Georgia Tech defensive tackle Adam Gotsis to replace Malik Jackson.
6:39 The Browns take Penn State defensive end Carl Nassib with Pick 65. I guess Hue Jackson doesn’t think much of Connor Cook.
6:43 The 49ers are on the clock after Dallas takes Nebraska defensive tackle Maliek Collins.
6:47 49ers take Mississippi State cornerback Will Redmond. Good pick. Makes you think the 49ers may trade back into Round 3 for an inside linebacker.
