NFL Draft Recap: Picks 33-36

The second round of the 2020 Draft is underway.

The first four picks went to Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Detroit, and the New York Giants.

33. Cincinnati Bengals: WR Tee Higgins, Clemson

Clemson wide receiver Tee Higgins is the first pick of the second round and is the newest Cincinnati Bengal.

After taking LSU quarterback Joe Burrow with the number one overall pick, the Bengals add the number one receiver from the Clemson Tigers, the team in which Burrow and LSU defeated in the National Championship game.

Higgins will be complimenting longtime Bengals star receiver A.J. Green, who missed all of last season with an ankle injury.

Higgins finished seventh in the ACC with 59 catches last season and led the ACC in receiving touchdowns in both 2018 and 2019.

34. Indianapolis Colts: WR Michael Pittman Jr. USC

The Indianapolis Colts then selected Michael Pittman Jr. from USC, the second time in this draft that receivers have gone back to back.

Pittman will be a much-needed complement to T.Y. Hilton. Pittman led the PAC-12 in receptions and yards (101 catches, 1,275 yards). A very solid, and much-needed addition for the Colts offense, and Philip Rivers now has another big-play target.

35. Detroit Lions: RB D’Andre Swift, Georgia

The Lions have been a very pass-heavy offense for what feels like forever. They have yet to find a true feature back since Barry Sanders retired.

With Swift, they add a guy who can catch and run out of the backfield. Kerryon Johnson and Swift will give Matthew Stafford and the passing game a solid run game to rely on.

36. New York Giants: S Xavier McKinney, Alabama

What a pick for the Giants. McKinney is the best safety in the draft, and he is very versatile.

The Giants need a guy who they can spread all across the defensive backfield, and McKinney is that guy. A very big pickup for the Giants.
