Jalen Hurts feels blessed to be an Eagle after his long journey (1:09)

New Eagles draftee Jalen Hurts talks about his journey to the NFL and how he feels blessed to be an NFL player. (1:09)

Whew, Rounds 2 and 3 of the 2020 NFL draft were a whirlwind, and now we get to turn around and do Rounds 4-7 early on Saturday. Day 2 of the draft is where the good teams find values and steal early starters. It's also where the bad teams pick prospects based on traits and ceilings, and that's how they get burned.

There were a few surprises on Friday night. I didn't expect the Eagles to be the team to take quarterback Jalen Hurts. And there were a couple of prospects who fell much further than I thought.

After I went through the picks I liked and didn't like from the first round, let's do it again for Day 2. Check out the best available prospects heading into Round 4 on Saturday, and join me at noon ET on ESPN, ABC and the ESPN App as we run through the best day of the draft.

Picks I liked from Day 2

Baltimore Ravens

The picks: J.K. Dobbins, RB, Ohio State (No. 55); Justin Madubuike, DT, Texas A&M (No. 71); Devin Duvernay, WR, Texas (No. 92); Malik Harrison, ILB, Ohio State; Tyre Phillips, OT, Mississippi State (No. 106)

OK, so it's easy to be a winner on Day 2 when you have five picks, but I really like what Baltimore did here. The word I've used to describe Dobbins is "fierce." He gets downhill in a hurry. He is my second-ranked running back, and I thought he might sneak into the end of Round 1. Instead the Ravens got him at No. 55, and he'll inject some youth into a record-breaking rushing attack. This is a pick for value. I'm a big fan of Madubuike, whom Baltimore got in Round 3. He has some upside as an interior pass-rusher. Both Dobbins and Madubuike made my list of favorite prospects by position.

The Ravens also got a speedy slot receiver in Duvernay near the end of Day 2, and he could catch a few balls at the line of scrimmage and take them for touchdowns. He caught 106 passes for 1,386 yards last year. Then the Ravens got some value with Harrison at No. 98; he was my 74th-ranked prospect. He could end up playing outside linebacker with first-round pick Patrick Queen taking over in the middle. Phillips is an underrated mauler at offensive tackle.

This Ravens class is in the running for an A.
