8:01 p.m.

No. 33 Green Bay (from Cleveland)

Kevin King, CB, 6-3, 203, Washington

One of the tallest corners in the draft. Big question is top-end speed.

No. 34 Jacksonville (from Seattle through San Francisco)

Cam Robinson, OT, 6-6, 322, Alabama

The All-American has all the measurable. Needs more consistent footwork.

No. 35 Seattle (from Jacksonville)

Malik McDowell, DT, 6-6, 295, Michigan State

Inconsistent play and some injuries as a junior kept him out of the first round. Freaky athlete.

No. 36 Arizona (from Chicago)

Budda Baker, S, 5-10, 195, Washington

Baker goes to the team that has the player he is most often compared: Tyrann Mathieu.

No. 37 Buffalo (Los Angeles Rams)

Zay Jones, WR, 6-2, 201, East Carolina

Jones led the nation in catches with a record 158 last season. Yes, 158.

No. 38 Los Angeles Chargers

Forrest Lamp, OL, 6-4, 309, Western Kentucky

Tackle who might move inside in the pros, but he graded out as well as any linemen in the draft.

No. 39 New York Jets

Marcus Maye, S, 6-0, 210, Florida

Two picks and two safeties for the Jets.

No. 40 Carolina

Curtis Samuel, WR/RB, 6-0, 205, Ohio State

Panthers add versatile Samuel to Christian McCaffrey, who they took in Round 1.

No. 41 Minnesota 

Dalvin Cook, RB, 5-10, 210, Florida State

Character question dragged Cook down, but the Vikings got a potential star to replace Adrian Peterson.

No. 42 New Orleans

Marcus Williams, S, 6-1, 202, Utah

7:15 p.m.

The Green Bay Packers opened the second round of the NFL draft by selecting Washington cornerback Kevin King.

Green Bay traded out of the first round, so King, a 6-3 former safety, was its first addition in this draft. The Packers owned the 29th pick, which they sent to Cleveland on Thursday night.

Just before Friday's selection, Commissioner Roger Goodell and former Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski thanked Philadelphia and the fans. Folks in the theater even booed Goodell's tribute, but not when "Jaws" repeated it.

6:45 p.m.

Cardinals first-round draft pick Haason Reddick arrived in Arizona Friday and gushed about his new NFL home.

He praised the welcoming fans and called the area "heaven on earth."

Apparently nobody warned him about practicing in 120-degree summer temperatures.

The versatile linebacker also said he's looking forward to learning behind veteran Karlos Dansby, who was signed to a one-year contract.

Reddick, the 13th pick overall, said he's already talked to Dansby and that he's "blessed and lucky" to be in a position to learn from him.

Round two of the draft begins at 7 p.m. with a pick by Green Bay.
