3/26 costrander3689's Mock Draft (Round 2)
1 - HOU: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
The Texans are a team that is ready to go, but needs a driver. Bridgewater is a high-floor prospect with very good IQ and accuracy that should thrive in Houston's run-first, precision offense
2 - STL: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn
(from WAS) The Rams could look at Watkins here, but I don't think they trust Saffold eough to start him at RT again, and with Long on the recovery, Robinson would be an attractive option as an immediate RT and fill-in LT
3 - JAX: Jadeveon Clowney, DE , South Carolina
The Jaguars should aim for a QB in the 2nd round if Clowney or Robinson is still on the board. Grabbing one of those palyers here is a good move, and gives them an immediate impact starter. Henne can hold down the fort well enough until they find a good QB
4 - CLE: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson
Watkins might be the safest prospect currently on the board, and the thought of pairing him with Josh Gordon has to be very appealing. The Browns have enough ammo to add a QB later in the round, or trade up for one in the teens, should Bortles or Manziel fall
5 - OAK: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M
THe Raiders might be tempted by Bortles or Manziel here, but they shouldn't take the bait, and should lock up a cornerstone LT to replace Veldheer
6 - ATL: Khalil Mack, LB , Buffalo
With the top 2 OTs off the board, and the Flacons clearly moving towards a hybrid or 3-4 front, grabbing Mack here is an ideal move
7 - TB: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
Might be a slight reach, but the Bucs are set on offense, and Evans has better value here than Lewan. He'd also give McCown or Glennon another big target to pair with Vincent Jackson, who Evans says he models his game after
8 - MIN: Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida
The Vikings need to take a shot at future stability at the QB position. With Cassel as the likely Day 1 starter, and being picked 8th, there is not a ton of pressure on Bortles to succeed out of the gates; he'll have some time to learn the offense
9 - BUF: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
Evans or Ebron would be nice here as well, but the Bills need to protect Manuel, and adding an athletic LT would be a good move. This pick also allows them to slide Glenn over to RT, solidifying both spots
10 - DET: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State
With Evans and Watkins off the b oard, Glibert looks like the most likely pick here. The Lions need to shore up their defense, and this would be a good start
11 - TEN: Kony Ealy, DL , Missouri
I've been mocking Ealy here for a while, and still like it. Either he or Barr would be a good fit as a pass rusher across from Derrick Morgan
12 - NYG: Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina
With Beason resigned, the Giants can focus on pumping up their offense. With the top OTs gone, Ebron has great value here, and gives Eli a monster target that can get deep consistently
13 - STL: Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama
Since Evans is gone, I dont think the Rams will look to reach for a WR. However, they need a center-fielder, and HCD is the best in the draft
14 - CHI: Aaron Donald, DL , Pittsburgh
The Bears should be going DT or DB here. Donald has huge value, and would replace Melton, who is likely headed elsewhere
15 - PIT: Darqueze Dennard, CB , Michigan State
If Dennard is sitting here, the Steelers should eschew their other needs and take him. They badly need a pressure CB, and Dennard has Day 1 starting ability
16 - BAL: Marqise Lee, WR , USC
Yes, they resigned Jacoby Jones, but he's primariy a punt returner, and does not fit as a #2 WR. Lee should start there immediately, and help draw attention from Torrey Smith
17 - DAL: Tim Jernigan, DT, Florida State
Dallas' d-line is a mess. They need to fill almost every position, and getting a really good 3-tech rusher is a good move here
18 - NYJ: Anthony Barr, LB, UCLA
Barr's fall might be more due to teams filling needs than his abilities. The Jets have a serious need for a pass rusher, and though Decker is not #1 WR, he does eleviate some of the immediate need of drafting a WR early
19 - MIA: Zack Martin, OT, Notre Dame
Martin is another player that I have consistently had going to the same team. After signing Albert, the Dolphins still need 3 more starting o-linemen. Expect them to draft 2 or 3 in the first few rounds
20 - ARI: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M
Barring a team trading up for him, I think the Cardnials will happily take Manziel here. Palmer is the clear starter, and Manziel would have little pressure on him as a backup while he learns the system for a year or 2
21 - GB: Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville
The Packers badly need a #1 safety. Pryor is an excellent all-around type safety and can do whatever they need him to do
22 - PHI: Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame
The best player on the board gives the Eagles a top NT that they can continue to build around
23 - KC: Brandin Cooks, WR , Oregon State
Bowe is a decent #1, but the Chiefs need more pass catchers. Cooks gives them the fireld-stretcher that they badly need
24 - CIN: C.J. Mosley, OLB, Alabama
Maualuga is not a good MLB, and drafting Mosley here would be a good upgrade and give them the BPA
25 - SD: Odell Beckham, WR , LSU
Keenan Allen is a #1 WR-in-the-making for the Chargers. However, they need to continue developing this offense, and adding Beckham is a good move here
26 - CLE: Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, Eastern Illinois
The Browns should be looking at Garoppolo and Carr here. I think Garoppolo has more upside, and a higher floor
27 - NO: Dee Ford, DE , Auburn
Unless there's a top WR available here, Dee Ford is a very good pick here for a team that needs pass rushers
28 - CAR: Cyrus Kouandjio, OL , Alabama
If Kouandjio is available, the Panthers shouldn't put too much thought into this pick as a replacement for Jordan Gross
29 - NE: Ra'Shede Hageman, DL , Minnesota
With Wilfork asking for a release, adding a NT should be high on the Pats wish list. Hageman should fill that slot nicely
30 - SF: Jason Verrett, CB , TCU
The 49ers have been dumping DBs, and should be in the market for a CB or WR early on. Verrett has really good value here, and should be their #3 or #2 CB immediately
31 - DEN: Ryan Shazier, LB , Ohio State
WIth Woodyard off to Tennessee, the Broncos should be looking for a new, athletic MLB early on. Shazier is the most athletic early round LB in the draft, and would be a nice replacement
32 - SEA: Xavier Su'a-Filo, OL , UCLA
The Seahawks should be looking at DT, OG and TE here. Su'a-Filo should be an immediate starter at RG
