Round 2

1(33).

RB Lamar Miller – Miami(FL)

This is a case of having a Top 20 player fall to you, and you dont pass on him regardless of position. Lamar Miller could easily be selected in the middle of the 1st but happens to fall in this mock. Steven Jackson has alot of carries under his belt and St. Louis needs more dynamic playmakers on the offensive side of the ball. 

2(34).

TE Coby Fleener – Stanford 

After the Colts select Andrew Luck, they need to start filling in the necessary parts to make him succesful. After losing Jacob Tamme and Dallas Clark, Luck’s ex-teammate makes for a great pick in round 2. 

3(35).

WR Alshon Jeffrey – South Carolina

The Vikings really lack any playmakers outside of Percy Harvin at the WR position. If they want to give Christian Ponder the greatest chance at success, they need to give him better options than Michael Jenkins and Devin Aromashodu. 

4(36).

RB David Wilson – Virginia Tech

RB could be a possibility in round 1 if Trent Richardson were to fall to them. However, in this scenario they target a change of pace back for LaGarette Blount with David Wilson. Wilson’s game breaking ability would be a great compliment to Blount’s downhill style. 

5(37).

QB Brandon Weeden – Oklahoma St.

 The Browns were big losers in trying to land a QB this offseason. They failed to trade up for RGIII and missed out on Matt Flynn. After passing up on Ryan Tannehill with the #4 pick, they land Weeden here, who is an immediate upgrade over Colt McCoy. 

6(38).

WR Mohamed Sanu – Rutgers 

It’s no secret that the Jaguars must find a legitimate #1 WR for Blaine Gabbert. The Laurent Robinson signing was solid, but he’s not a top wideout.  Sanu gives the Jags a great option at wideout, and a deep threat for Gabbert  

7(39).(from Wash)

DT Devon Still – Penn St. 

This pick was the Redskins, but the Rams acquire it from trading down in round 2. I’ve had the Rams selecting a DT in round 1 in the past, but in this mock they wait till the 2nd round to get their DT. Signing Kendall Langford was a nice start to fix the D-line, but another DT is needed. 

8(40).

WR Brian Quick – Appalachian St.

Panthers have found their QB of the future, and recently committed to Steve Smith. Time to give both of those guys help by drafting a vertical threat, and someone who is a threat in the redzone. 

9(41).

OT Mike Adams – Ohio St.

The Bills are extremely thin at OT. After losing Demetress Bell to Free Agency they must lean towards Chris Hairston and Erik Pears to protect Ryan Fitzpatrick.  Buffalo needs to target an OT early to bring in competition and find out who the best lineman is. Adams has 1st round talent and should be considered a steal here. 

10(42).

OT Bobby Massie – Ole Miss

Lydon Murtha,Nate Garner, and Will Barker. Those are the other OT’s on the roster besides All-Pro Jake Long. To say that the Dolphins need help at RT is an understatement. Massie is a natural RT and would be a huge upgrade over any other candidate on the Dolphins roster. 

11(43).

CB Jayron Hosley – Virginia Tech  

Seahawks have a strong secondary and CB’s Richard Sherman, a 5th round pick and Brandon Browner, a former CFL corner, played better than anyone expected them to last season. However, insurance should be a consideration in Seattle just in case either or both regress in 2012. 

12(44).

DT Alameda Ta’amu – Wahington

The Chiefs have done a solid job filling their needs this offseason, but still lack a true dominate force at NT. Ta’amu is a massive NT with natural strength that gives Romeo Crennel the potential of a dominant defensive line.  

13(45).

DE/OLB Nick Perry – USC

Would Nick Perry really be available here for Dallas on draft day? It’s not that far fetched to think he could take a plunge, and if he were Dallas shouldn’t hesitate even though they franchised Anthony Spencer. Spencer is only a stop-gap until the Cowboys can find a more talented and consistent option across from DeMarcus Ware.  

14(46).

OLB Bobby Wagner – Utah St.

After the spending frenzy in 2011, the Eagles forgot to address the LB position. Current OLB Brian Rolle played solid and probably earned himself a starting gig in 2012, but aside from that, the cupboard is bare. Wagner brings alot to the table and would be very appealing to the Eagles in the middle of the 2nd round. 

15(47).

S Harrison Smith – Notre Dame

Currently there are only 3 safeties on the Jets roster; Eric Smith, the injury prone and overrated Laron Landry, and Tracy Wilson. To say that more quality is needed here is obvious. After missing out on Mark Barron in round 1, they get a solid Harrison Smith here.   

16(48).(from Oakland)

DE/OLB Shea McClellin – Boise St. 

Pats ran mostly a 4-3 last season mainly due to the fact that they lacked the pieces to run a 3-4. Belichick will use multiple formation in the front seven, and likes guys with versatility. McClellin would be a great fit as OLB but can play with his hand in the dirt in the 4-3. 

17(49).

OT Zebrie Sanders - Florida St. 

Chargers made the right move by re-signing LT Jared Gaither. On the other side of the line is one of the worst starting RT’s in the game Jeromey Clary. Clary needs to be replaced immediately. Not to mention, their backup OT Brandyn Dombrowski was one of the lowest graded OT’s in all of football last season.  

18(50).

DT Jerel Worthy – Michigan St.

The Bears have made it known that they are interested in adding to their DL this offseason. They selected Stephen Paea last year, but he’s nothing more than a rotational guy at this point.  If Worthy were available here, the Bears shouldn’t hesitate. 

19(51).(from Arizona)

CB – Josh Robinson – UCF

Asante Samuel’s days in a Eagle uniform seem to be numbered, and although still a great CB, Nnamdi Asomugha will be 31 when the season starts. The Eagles need to add some youth for the future of their CB’s 

20(52).

OG Kelechie Osemele – Iowa St.  

Steve Hutchinson was signed this offseason, but at 34 years old he is entering the end of his career. Osemele could could be his future replacement and challenge Leroy Harris for the starting RG spot from day 1.  

21(53).

RB Doug Martin – Boise St.

With Cedric Benson gone, the Bengals needs to find a big back to fit thier downhill running style. Martin is potential a guy that Cincy could target in round 1, but would jump at the chance to land him here in the second. 

22(54).

OG Amini Silatolu – Midwestern St. 

Detroit double-dips at OL here with the selection of Silatolu. The Lions have longed lacked true road grades on their offensive line, and must focus on rebuilding the trenches early in this draft. Silatolu brings agility and strength to an average group 

23(55).

TE Dwayne Allen – Clemson

This one is a simple as the Falcons need to find a successor to Tony Gonazalez. Allen is extremely athletic and gives the Falcons versatility and two dangerous weapons from the TE spot.  

24(56).

DT Josh Chapman – Alabama

Steelers need to find their future at NT to replace an aging and injured Casey Hampton. Chapman is a tad undersized for the spot, but makes up for it with his strength and his ability to stop the run. 

25(57).

DT Brandon Thompson – Clemson 

With Bunkley in New Orleans, and Marcus Thomas yet to re-sign, the Broncos need to look into acquiring a young run-stuffer in the middle of the defensive line. Thompson has the size and quickness that Denver is looking for. 

26(58).

DE/OLB Andre Branch – Clemson

Brooks Reed did a great job filling in for an injured Mario Williams last season. With Reed set to start opposite Connor Barwin, the Texans need to address depth at this spot incase of injury.  

27(59).

CB Brandon Boykin – Georgia 

Chalres Woodson is still playing at a high level, but he’s 35 years old. Green Bay needs to think about developing a CB to take his place. At worst, Boykin could battle with Jarrett Bush and Sam Shields for the 3rd CB spot.  

28(60).

WR Chris Givens – Wake Forest

Anquan Boldin’s best days are behind him and Tandon Doss and David Reed haven’t developed into anything more than mediocre WR’s. Ravens desperately need help opposite of Torrey Smtih. 

29(61).

CB Chase Minnifield – Virginia

Carlos Rogers had a fantastic season, but will be  31 when the 2012 season rolls around. Minnifield could man the nickel spot untill he is ready to take over as a starter. 

 30(62).

RB Bernard Pierce – Temple 

With the plethora of picks New England has, they can afford to take the best player available. With the departure of Benjarvis Green-Ellis, look for the Patriots to invest in RB early in the draft.   

31(63).

DE Vinny Curry – Marshall

It’s no secret that Tom Cughlin loves depth at Defensive line. With the future of Osi Umenyiora in doubt, Giants should consider getting a DE to develop and add to an already potent defense.

    That would be a really nice two rounds for the Broncos. I think one of Thomas or McBean will stay but will be rotational/back ups.

  2. CHARLIE JOHN NAPIERKOWSKI says:

    I LIKE YOUR 2ND ROUND PICK FOR THE BEARS THEY NEED TO GET BETTER WRS ON THAT TEAM AND I THINK JONES IS ONE OF THE WRS THAT CAN HELP THEM NOW ALL WE HAVE TO WAIT TIL THE DRAFT TO FIND OUT

    • mockdraft says:

      Thank you and thanks for visiting! I think Jones is great value in Round 2. Alshon Jeffrey would make sense in Round 1 for Chicago, but I feel there’s the same value by waiting a round and getting someone of Jones caliber.

  3. Matt says:

    The Lions will not pass up on Peter Kontz who will fill a big hole at Center. They could not run the ball because of the Center and guards of the lionsa are small and weak. In the second round I can see a OT or a CB. They will wait until the third or fourth round for a safety. The OL, CB and LB are there biggest needs.

    • mockdraft says:

      Peter Konz is defiantly a legit option, and in the end, it’s probably the right way to go, but for this mock I had to give them Secondary help. If they do go Konz in round 1 there will be some solid CB and LB talent in round 2.

      • matt says:

        I agree. I think they should wait until the second round and look for a Minniefield or a Boykins at CB. They can wait until the third or trade up into the second for a LT. The Safety position is deep and that might be the third round or fourth round. There is a new rumor that the Lions are talking with the Bangels to trade Suh for there two late first round selections. They ahve to free up cap sapace for Johnson, Avril, and Tulloch and Farley played better then Suh at the end of the season. Can’t tie up to much money in the DT position.

        • DETFAN69 says:

          You got to be kidding!!! No way Detroit trades Suh…., besides the will restructure CJ’s contract to open up some cap space. They will not get rid of one of the building blocks that has turned this franchise around.

  4. David says:

    I wouldn’t mind the Richardson pick for the Hawks, but I’m not sure if he’ll fall that far haha. A one two punch of Lynch and Richardson would be awesome, plus it just wouldn’t be fair.

    As for the second round, I don’t see them picking up an offensive lineman here, pretty good depth there and John Moffitt was really coming into his own prior to his injury, same with James Carpenter. The guys that backed them up did great, the Hawks barely lost a step. That was with 3 OL-men on IR.

    Realistically I see a DE, or rush LB at the 2 spot if the Hawks don’t get one in the 1st. Maybe, Maybe a QB depending on who’s left at that point.

    • mockdraft says:

      I think RG needs an upgrade. Im one of the biggest Zeitler fans there is. The guy is a beast at blocking, very underrated IMO. I was leaning DE for them in both rounds, but in this scenario the cards didn’t fall that way

      • David says:

        Just my opinion, Moffitt will be an all-pro at some point in his career. More depth would be good, a guy who will eventually need replacement it Robert Gallery. Unless you’re name is Steve Hutchinson you don’t last very long at the Guard position in the NFL haha, he missed some games this year because of injury. I’m excited about the Hawk’s line right now, as I said even when we lost 3 to IR the guys who were in reserve did their jobs great. Okung was lost the game before Chicago and a lot of people were ready to call the season, going up against the Bears with a make shift O-line, especially a second string tackle in Paul Mcquistan, who could quite possibly also be the ugliest man in the NFL.H
        What ever PC and Group decide to do I have faith in. his first 2 drafts have been great, picking good, quality players in just about every round. The Defense is just a pass rusher away from being one of the Leagues best. The offense is a QB away from being great. What ever happen, I can’t wait till next season.

  5. Chuck N. says:

    Steelers won’t reach or in rd1 or go cb in rd2. They’ll go BAP in rd1 – looks like ILB from bama or ASU. DB help will be @ safety – 2 cb picks last year who went on IR prior to Denver game & 4 year deal given to Taylor last summer. Need depth!!!!

    • mockdraft says:

      I know that they selected Curtis Brown and Cortez Allen last draft, but with William Gay entering FA, with neither one of those CB yet proving anything (obviously b/c of injury), and due to the fact that they lack any true playmkaers at CB, I can see them addressing CB early in the draft, or through FA

  6. hinkleyhick says:

    The Packers will NOT select another running back in this draft much less in the second round!! They need OL-DL-DB-LB help and this draft will be strictly for those positions. RBs are no where on their radar. They are happy with Starks.

    • mockdraft says:

      I believe they are happy with Starks as well, but I also believe that RB has to be on their radar at some point in this draft. I know that Green Bay doesn’t run the ball as much as other teams so theres not much of an emphasis place of a solid stable of RB’s like in other places. With that being said, they need more healthy bodies in the backfiled and could target a RB in rds 2-4.

  7. Logan says:

    Not a fan of you second round pick of Indy. I do agree that they need to rebuild that defense, but the biggest problems are in the secondary. The Colts linebacking corps is actually really good. Ernie Sims and Phillip Wheeler will probably be brought back for cheap and Pat Angerer and Kavell Conner look like the real deal. Linebackers in the Colts scheme are rotational players and can always be had in the mid-rounds. The Colts could really use another good DT to pair with Moala and Nevis and Thompson fits perfectly as a 1-tech in the 4-3. No way they pass on that.

    • mockdraft says:

      I completely agree with you, but I made that selection just because of the fact that Wheeler is a FA. Indy should do their best to re-ign him, and if they do then obviously it will change. I have had Thompson mocked to Indy before and Im sure he will be an optin ofr them come draft day, but just happens for this mock I went the talent that was available. Thanks for checking out the site!

  8. Jon says:

    Cowboys will either grab a OL or CB in the first three rounds witha PassRushing DE or OLB as the third need. Can see them grabbing Barron out of bama if Kirpatrick and DeCastro are off the board as well good mock

  9. Steve says:

    For the Browns I would like to see them swap with Miami and take Richardson with the #8 and then Jenkins at #42. The rest of the picks remain the same and we are ready to rock.

  10. mstewart says:

    If the Giants were to draft Burfict in the 1st and Martin in the 2nd round, it would be a successful draft. I guess you feel that they will draft OL in the 3rd rd and maybe another OL in the 4th or 5th round as well.

    • mockdraft says:

      I think OL needs to be addressed early on for them, but with what was available for this mock I thought it made more sense to go that direction.

  11. Shawn Bailey says:

    In this scenario, Cleveland would take Chase Minnifield over Glenn in the second. He’s great value and would make fans who were disappointed we didn’t draft Clay Matthews happy–nothing wrong with a talented legacy player…

    • mockdraft says:

      Minnifield would make sense as well, Clev. def needs something across from Haden, but I think you can find better value in Rounds 3 and on at CB than you can with O-line, thats why I went with Glenn

  12. Sean says:

    YOUR DRAFT ORDER IS WRONG.eagles pick #45 and #47.if u copied Walter he was wrong.I also can’t see Philly taking k wright just because u r assuming desean is gone and k wright is a similar player.if they don’t resign him its not because his attitude its because he is too frail to give him that much cash.so why let him go to essentially draft the same guy.they’ll be looking to up their redzone production like a 6’3″+ reciever or te also that’s quite a reach for a player that djax or no djax doesn’t fill the teams biggest need

  13. mstewart says:

    Although I like your picks for the Giants, I can’t see Kuechly lasting until the 32nd pick in the 1st round. Doug Martin would be an excellent choice in the 2nd round.

    • mockdraft says:

      Maybe Its just me, but Im not a fan at all of Kuechly. Realistically he probably will go earlier, but I don’t see enough dynamic plays or plays in the backfield for me to give him a grade similar to where others think he will go. He probably won’t make it that far to the Giants, but I think that’s his range.

  14. ted says:

    Love your picks for NE Pats. But trying to figure out who they wil draft is next to impossible. If they use all their picks they could become the scourge of the NFL on the d side of the ball. Wow draft looks scary is Pats use all picks, don’t forget they are allready a young team on the d side of the ball. Draft could be interesting. WIndow for Brady closing fast not many more chances for them

  15. Steve says:

    Your comments on the Browns second round pick are absurd. Calling the defense less than average? As terrible as the offense was the defense was 5th in the NFL in scoring and 10th in total yards allowed.

  16. Scott says:

    Hello,

    Good job on mock, however, you left out one of the best Rbs in David Wilson of Virgina Tech. Don’t be surprised if the Rams draft him in round 2 if he doesn’t get taken earlier.

    • mockdraft says:

      Thank you, and I realized it when i posted it, and was a complete oversight on my part. Thought I already had him listed but didn’t. Wilson has a wide draft range, wouldn’t shock me if he was picked late 1st, or fell to the bottom of round 2.
