Day Two of the 2014 NFL Draft might not provide as much drama as Day One, but there are plenty of story lines to discuss ahead of Friday night at Radio City Music Hall.

In the last five years, Day Two of the draft has been loaded with trades of teams moving up, down or hoarding picks for future drafts. Last year, there were nine trades on Day Two, 10 in 2012, nine in 2011, 11 in 2010 and 12 in 2009.

Teams will likely be jostling for a number of the remaining skill position prospects at quarterback, running back and wide receiver.

After Blake Bortles (No. 3 to Jacksonville), Johnny Manziel (No. 22 to Cleveland) and Teddy Bridgewater (No. 30 to Minnesota) went off the board on Day One, the Houston Texans face a difficult decision as they try to address their glaring need for a franchise quarterback.

The Texans wisely took defensive end Jadeveon Clowney to solidify its defensive front for the next 10 years, but now are in the awkward position of possibly selecting Fresno State’s Derek Carr, whose brother David they picked No. 1 overall in 2002. David Carr lasted just four years in Houston.

Houston general manager Rick Smith was possibly hoping Bridgewater would fall out of the first and into the second round, where the Texans again lead off at No. 33 overall. However, all is not lost in Houston with Carr, Eastern Illinois’s Jimmy Garoppolo, Alabama’s AJ McCarron, LSU’s Zach Mettenberger, Georgia’s Aaron Murray and Clemson’s Tajh Boyd all certifiable options.

Running back has also been a popular position in the second round for quite some time. In 2013, five rushers were selected in the second, two went in 2012, four in 2011 and three in 2010. Any number of the top-ranked running backs like Ohio State’s Carlos Hyde, Washington’s Bishop Shankey or Auburn’s Tre Mason could find a new home early in the second round.

Cleveland did sign Ben Tate away from Houston, but could be in play for Hyde, Shankey or Mason at No. 35 overall, and Atlanta right after at No. 36 could certainly be in play for a rusher.

Five receivers went in the first round Thursday, but USC star wide out Marqise Lee is still available as well as Penn State’s Allen Robinson and Indiana’s Cody Latimer.

There could be a run on receivers just below the top of the second round but above the middle picks. At No. 38, Jacksonville could be seeking a new receiver to grow with Bortles, especially with Justin Blackmon’s future with the team in doubt. Seattle could also be in the market for a new wide out for Russell Wilson at No. 39.
