SEC superlatives: NFL Draft Day 2 (1:49)

Third-round pick Cam Sutton is a cover corner. The Steelers want to play more man coverage in 2017, according to defensive backs coach Carnell Lake. "It's apparent to improve our defense," he said.

Jeremy Fowler ESPN Staff Writer 

Steelers got their corner at No. 94 overall: Tennessee's Cameron Sutton. At 5-foot-11, Sutton will likely be a candidate to play the slot, but he has experience on the outside as a press corner, too. Sutton started every game before his senior year, when he missed half the year with a fractured ankle. Can return punts. A potential replacement for Will Gay down the road.

With Cal QB Davis Webb off the board, the Steelers could use one of their two late-third-round picks on a quarterback before most of them are gone. They very well might eschew one entirely, but Tennessee's Josh Dobbs and Pitt's Nate Peterman are available. The team met with both players during the pre-draft process.

Mike Triplett ESPN Staff Writer 

Sean Payton wasn't lying about two things -- he said he loved the running back class in the middle rounds of this draft, and he said the Saints coveted these Day 2 picks, in general. The Saints will have a total of three third-round picks now after giving up next year's second-round pick to get RB Alvin Kamara.

Saints add a weapon in RB Alvin Kamara

Although he was never a workhorse back, Mel Kiper Jr. thinks that Tennessee's Kamara has the diverse skill set NFL teams are seeking.

Mike Triplett ESPN Staff Writer 

The Saints traded up to No. 67 to draft Tennessee RB Alvin Kamara. The price wasn't too high (next year's 2nd-rounder and this year's 7th-rounder to San Francisco). Their backfield is awfully crowded all of a sudden after they signed Adrian Peterson last week to pair with Mark Ingram. But Kamara is a dual threat who can catch passes, so there could be room for all three of them. Before the Saints signed Peterson, I thought he might be a second-round target for New Orleans.

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

The 49ers have back-to-back picks to open the third round and a whole lot of options. With Notre Dame's DeShone Kizer the only quarterback taken in the second round, the Niners could find their developmental prospect for coach Kyle Shanahan if they wanted to. Some of the signal callers still available as the Niners' pick approaches: Cal's Davis Webb, Pitt's Nathan Peterman, Tennessee's Joshua Dobbs and Miami's Brad Kaaya.

ESPN Stats and Information  

The SEC had 12 players taken in the first round Thursday night -- including nine from the West division alone -- tied for the most by any conference in the common draft era. The SEC has produced the most first-round picks in six of the past seven drafts.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Is Friday the day the Browns, 49ers, Saints or Cardinals pick their QB of the future? DeShone Kizer, Joshua Dobbs, Nathan Peterman and Davis Webb lead the best signal-callers available headed into the second night of the NFL draft.

Which SEC first-rounder is the best fit? (1:12)

Edward Aschoff ESPN Staff Writer 

The SEC had 12 players drafted in this year's NFL Draft. That ties the record by a conference (ACC - 2006, SEC - 2013). Alabama led the conference with four picks, while LSU was second with three. The SEC has now hit double-digit draft numbers in the first round six times since 2005

Remaining players for Friday include RB Dalvin Cook, RB Joe Mixon, RB Alvin Kamara, WR Zay Jones, RB/WR Curtis Samuel, QB DeShone Kizer.

No Eagles defender had more than seven sacks in 2016. Derek Barnett doesn't have the elite athletic traits of Myles Garrett, but he broke Reggie White's Tennessee record with 33 career sacks.

Edward Aschoff ESPN Staff Writer 

Derek Barnett broke Reggie White's sack record at Tennessee (33) and is one of the best natural pass-rushers in the draft. Goes 14th to Philadelphia but surprisingly goes before Alabama's Jonathan Allen

Tim McManus ESPN Staff Writer 

The Eagles needed a pass-rusher to help fuel Jim Schwartz's scheme, and land one of the more productive college players in Tennessee's Derek Barnett at 14 overall. Barnett broke Reggie White's sack record at Tennessee (32) and posted 13 takedowns this past season.
