And on the second day of the draft, much like the first, the Jets get things kicked off with a trade.

OK, so Shonn Greene won't generate as much buzz as the Mark Sanchez deal did -- that room was on fire yesterday when they did -- but he's an interesting pick for a team that has seen Thomas Jones hold out of all the minicamps to date and is reaching that critical RB age of 31 this August. I am not the biggest Greene fan, but he sends a message and has a little Jones in his game, to boot.

Fletcher, another Iowa kid, could be this year's Charles Godfrey. Many had the versatile Godfrey pegged as a corner, and though he didn't stack up at that position with many of last year's draft prospects, he transitioned very well to safety and became a Day One starter in Carolina. Fletcher had a nice series of workouts and could be an instant competitor for the Rams, who are needy on defense.

We won't blog as often on Day Two, periodically chiming in when needed. Hope you're enjoying your Sunday.
