Brugler on best remaining players per NFLDraftScout.com

-- By Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com --

FRISCO, Texas -- After the selection of 32 players in the highly-celebrated first round of the 2018 NFL Draft Thursday, plenty of surprisingly good names were available to reset boards for Day 2, Friday.

Several players slipped due to medicals (Harold Landry, Maurice Hurst) while others simply didn't find a spot.

For those still focused on quarterbacks, even after five were taken in first round, watch for needy teams to consider Oklahoma State's Mason Rudolph (No. 15 below) and Richmond's Kyle Lauletta (rated as No. 7 QB and No. 94 overall before draft).

According to NFLDraftScout.com rankings, here are the top-50 prospects still available entering round two.

So here is your cheat sheet when draft goes back on the air Friday at 7 p.m. ET.

--1. Harold Landry, DE, Boston College (6-2, 252, 4.64, #7)

Although his senior season didn't go as expected, due mostly to injuries, Landry still possesses the outstanding bend, shoulder dip and speed that NFL teams covet on the edges. Medical concerns could be the key reason he fell out of the first round.

--2. James Daniels, OC, Iowa (6-3, 306, 5.23, #78)

With his balance, punch and toughness, Daniels has the ingredients of a long-time NFL starter. He is quick to engage and control the point of attack, sustaining his mean streak through the whistle. Daniels had knee issues in college, is that the reason behind his fall?

--3. Will Hernandez, OG, UTEP (6-2, 327, 5.15, #76)

A mauler with elite grip strength, Hernandez loves to play the bully role regardless of the score or clock, displaying the natural power and surprising foot quickness to be a plug-and-play starter.

--4. Connor Williams, OT, Texas (6-5, 296, 5.05, #55)

The tale of two tapes: the 2016 game film for Williams shows a future top-20 draft pick, but his 2017 tape was a combination of uneven play and injuries, leading to concerns and questions. Half the league will have him on the board as a guard and the other half at tackle.

--5. Josh Jackson, CB, Iowa (6-0, 196, 4.56, #15)

Jackson shows the football intelligence and ball skills to excel as an outside zone cornerback in the NFL. He would be higher on this list, but his issues in run support and press-man coverage are bothersome.

--6. Courtland Sutton, WR, SMU (6-3, 218, 4.54, #16)

No receiver prospect in this class has a higher NFL ceiling than Sutton with exceptional athletic prowess for man his size. However, there will be a massive difference between the offense at SMU and that of whichever team drafts him.

--7. Derrius Guice, RB, LSU (5-10, 224, 4.49, #5)

Guice stresses defenses with his quick, explosive cuts and his angry run style make him tough to finish, although it also leads to durability concerns. He has the competitive nature and athletic profile of a runner no NFL team wants to see in their division.

--8. Ronnie Harrison, SS, Alabama (6-2, 207, 4.57, #15)

A violent downhill player, Harrison has an outstanding closing burst and creates collisions. He shows some flaws in coverage, but he has a large tackle radius and athletic traits to be a NFL starter.

--9. Sam Hubbard, DE, Ohio State (6-5, 270, 4.76, #6)

His tape doesn't show a difference-maker, but Hubbard has a well-rounded skill-set with the athleticism and intelligence that fuels his versatility, projecting as a long-term starter.

--10. Dallas Goedert, TE, South Dakota State (6-5, 256, 4.70, #86)

Goedert needs time to refine his routes and blocking, but those deficiencies are based more inexperience rather than inability. His physical skill-set and dependable ball skills make him the top tight end option in this class.

--11. Christian Kirk, WR, Texas A&M (5-10, 201, 4.47, #3)
