No Tigers on draft's 2nd day

Wide receiver Darvin Adams is projected to go early on the final day of the draft.

Four offensive tackles were chosen on the second day of the NFL draft on Friday. Auburn All-America Lee Ziemba was not one of them. Neither was wide receiver Darvin Adams or running back/h-back Mario Fannin.

All three had hoped to be chosen in the top three downs, but their hopes were dashed. They’ll have to wait another day. The final four rounds of the draft are set for Saturday.

Ziemba broke an Auburn record for consecutive starts 52, starting every game of his career. Most analysts projected him as a third-round pick.

Adams was projected to go in the fourth round and Fannin in later rounds, but both had expressed optimism they could go earlier.

Quarterback Cam Newton was the No. 1 pick, going to the Carolina Panthers on Thursday. Defensive tackle Nick Fairley was the 13th player picked in the first round, going to the Detroit Lions.
