Last week I posted a Mock Draft for the first round, now just three weeks away, and now it has come time for the second round! First rounds are hard to judge because trades can come out of nowhere, and second rounds are murkier still, and I’ll be thrilled if I get a single one of these right. Anyways, here goes…
St Louis Rams (33) (First Round- Trent Richardson) Rueben Randle WR, LSU. With Justin Blackmon gone, St Louis go for another playmaker on the offense to help Sam Bradford
Indianapolis Colts (34) (Andrew Luck) Kendall Reyes DT, UConn. With the rebuilding on, Indianapolis goes for defensive help on the lines.
Minnesota Vikings (35) (Matt Kalil) Alshon Jeffrey WR, S Carolina. Christian Ponder gets as much help as possible early on.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (36) (Morris Claiborne) Lamar Miller RB, Miami. I am not sold on Tampa Bay’s offense, Josh Freeman really regressed and while LeGarrette Blount does not look like he can do it alone. They invested a lot in Carl Nicks, so why not play to that strength even more?
Cleveland Browns (37) (Justin Blackmon) Alfonzo Dennard CB, Nebraska. They passed on Claiborne in the first, still get a good corner in the second.
Jacksonville Jaguars (38) (Riley Reiff) Andre Branch DE, Clemson. Jeremy Mincey gets his bookend DE, Branch should fit in well with Jacksonville.
St Louis Rams (39) Zach Brown LB, UNC. St Louis did not lose most of their games just because Bradford was injured, their defense needs work.
Carolina Panthers (40) (Luke Keuchly) Ronnell Lewis LB, Oklahoma. Suddenly Carolina has a very strong linebacker core.
Buffalo Bills (41) (Michael Floyd) Mike Adams OT, Ohio St. Adams may very not make it this far, but there are questions about Adams’ ability so it’s not that big a stretch. If Buffalo takes an offensive lineman in round one, I could see them taking a receiver like Sanu, Jeffrey or Randle here if any of them are available. Adams is kinda doughy and his stock is starting to slip, but hes better than having NO LT.
Miami Dolphins (42) (Ryan Tannehill) Harrison Smith S, Notre Dame. Miami needs a safety after Yeremiah Bell was cut.
Seattle Seahawks (43) (Melvin Ingram) Mohammed Sanu WR, Rutgers. There are bigger needs, but with a new QB in town, getting help is important.
Kansas City Chiefs (44) (Dontari Poe) Jayron Hosley CB, Virginia Tech. They lost Brandon Carr, so corner becomes a position of need.
Dallas Cowboys (45) (Dre Kirkpatrick) Chandler Jones DE/OLB, Syracuse. Dallas keeps their focus on defense with the Syracuse super athlete.
Philadelphia Eagles (46) (Mark Barron) Jerel Worthy DT, Michigan St. The Eagles need help on the lines, and Worthy should be available here.
New York Tebows (47) (Whitney Mercilus) Doug Martin RB, Boise St. NY needs to shore up that running attack, despite Tim Tebow…
New England Patriots (48) (Nick Perry, Fletcher Cox) Josh Robinson CB, Central Florida. New England cannot keep running out their receivers both ways as defensive backs.
San Diego Chargers (49) (Courtney Upshaw) Kevin Zeitler G,Wisconsin. Zeitler is a strong guard who will help the poor Chargers line.
Chicago Bears (50) (Jonathan Martin) Mychal Kendricks LB,Cal. Sad to think of preparing for life after Urlacher.
Philadelphia Eagles (51) Zebrie Sanders OT, FSU. Oh Jason Peters, you just HAD to go blow up your Achilles didn’t you?
Demetrius Demetruss Bell just signed with Philly, but as any Bills fan can tell you, thats an 8 game plan at best.
Tennessee Titans (52) (Cordy Glenn) Brandon Thompson DT, Clemson. Tennessee needs help on both lines, and if they go Guard in the first like I have them, expect them to address the other line in round two, and vice versa.
Cincinnati Bengals (53) (Stephen Hill, Janoris Jenkins) Kelechi Osemele G, Iowa St. The Bengals continue to take the best player available on this fast improving team. Life is good in Cincinnati these days.
Detroit Lions (54) (Peter Konz) Brandon Boykin CB, Georgia. There is the corner that Lion’s fans have been clamoring for early on.
Atlanta Falcons (55) Amini Silatolu G, Midwestern St. Atlanta needs help up front, after investing so much in Julio Jones last year, they had better pick wisely with their first pick of the draft.
Pittsburgh Steelers (56) (Dont’a Hightower) Vinny CurryDE/OLB, Marshall. Pittsburgh is so much more fun when they have a great defense, don’t you agree? They spend their first two picks keeping their reputation intact with two high upside picks.
Denver Broncos (57) (fictional Mike Wallace trade) Alameda Ta’amu NT/DT, Washington. OK even though my scenario of Mike Wallace being traded probably won’t happen, Denver does need someone to man the line on defense, there was no pass rush up front and they struggled to stop the run.
Houston Texans (58) (Michael Brockers) Brian Quick WR, Appalachian St. What a great name for a receiver, not quite as good as “Mercilus” for a linebacker, but its right there. Houston finally gets some help for Andre Johnson.
Green Bay Packers (59) (Devon Still) Bobby Wagner LB,Utah St. Bad defenses are covered up well when you have an astounding offense like Green Bay does, but it won’t always be this way. Wagner is a solid player for a thin linebacker corps.
Baltimore Ravens (60) (Kendall Wright) Shea McClellin DE,Boise St. McClellin can move to linebacker if need be, and he provides a nice edge rush for the aging Ravens.
San Francisco 49ers (61) (Stephen Gilmore) Dwayne Allen TE, Clemson. San Fran already has a great TE, but as New England has proved, why have one great one when you can have two? If Alex Smith continues to improve, this will be a great pick for San Francisco.
New England Patriots (62) (Nick Perry, Fletcher Cox) Marvin McNutt WR,Iowa. Your guess is as good as mine as to what NE does on draft day, but I wouldn’t rule out another receiver after the first three picks went to the defense.
New York Giants (63) (Cody Fleener) David Wilson RB, Virginia Tech. Now that Brandon Philips is gone, I doubt New York wants Ahmad Bradshaw to solo the load.
