Good talent available at No. 35



Branch The first of the Bucs' two second-round picks will be approaching shortly, and there's some quality talent that could fall to Tampa Bay.

As of now, Michigan defensive tackle Alan Branch, predicted by almost everyone to be picked in the first half of the first round, is still on the board. Also, a player the Bucs have expressed interest in, USC center Ryan Kalil, is there.

Also available: USC receiver Dwayne Jarrett and Arkansas cornerback Chris Houston. The second-round pick might be just as intriguing as many of the first-round picks chosen today.
