65. Oakland Raiders: Brandon Parker, OT, North Carolina A&T
Parker played left tackle at North Carolina A&T, and he better stay there, considering Oakland gave up third, fifth and seventh-round selections. He likely will serve as a wing tackle until Donald Penn retires/moves on.
66. New York Giants: Lorenzo Carter, EDGE, Georgia
At 250 pounds, Carter was able to run a 4,50 40-yard dash at the combine. If the Giants can find the right spot for him in the scheme (outside linebacker), they should have a nice piece to play at the second level.
67. Cleveland Browns: Chad Thomas, DE, Miami
Thomas will give the Browns someone who can get a bit of pass-rush going, having 5.5 sacks with The U a year ago. At this juncture, Cleveland is getting a talent that should help in subpackages and occasionally in base.
68. Houston Texans: Justin Reid, S, Stanford
Reid can really play, making this an excellent pick for the Texans. Houston didn’t have a selection in the first two rounds, but it made up for that by landing one of the best safeties in the class. Last year, Reid has 99 tackles.
69. New York Giants: D.J. Hill, DT, North Carolina State
At 311 pounds, Hill will slot inside and help Damon Harrison stuff the run. It’s a solid play by Dave Getteman, who clearly wants to build from the inside out.
