New, comments

Day 2 mock draft

NCAA Football: North Carolina at Florida State Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

After an exciting day one of the 2017 NFL Draft, there are still a massive handful of very talented players available for the day two of the draft. With two rounds today, how will the rest of these early impact players be drafted?

ROUND TWO

33. Green Bay Packers from Cleveland Browns- Jordan Willis, Edge Defender, Kansas State: The Packers desperately need athletic pass rushers. Willis brings all the tools to the table to be a successful defender.

34. Seattle Seahawks from San Francisco 49ers- Cam Robinson, Offensive Tackle, Alabama: Seattle’s offensive line has been a problem for too long now. Robinson could step in day one and immediately boost the group.

35. Jacksonville Jaguars- Forrest Lamp, Offensive Line, WKU: Lamp will boost their interior line and give them strong trenches to pave the way for Leonard Fournette

36. Chicago Bears- Budda Baker, Safety, Washington: An athletic, intelligent and versatile safety to put at the back end of a young defense makes a lot of sense.

37. Los Angeles Rams- Dan Feeney, Offensive Line, Indiana: Feeney is a clean, experienced guard prospect who would bring some savvy and youth to the Rams’ woeful line.

38. Los Angeles Chargers- Obi Melifonwu, Safety, UConn: The Chargers need talent at the back end of their defense and Melifonwu’s upside and versatility would be hard to pass up on.

39. New York Jets- Carl Lawson, Edge Defender, Auburn: While a quarterback would make sense here, Todd Bowles will stick with what he knows and bring in a polished pass rusher to boost the defense.

40. Carolina Panthers- Tim Williams, Edge Defender, Alabama: The Panthers need to upgrade their pass rush after addressing offense in the first round.

41. Cincinnati Bengals- Derek Rivers, Edge Defender, Youngstown State: The Bengals help an aging line with an athletic and polished small school defender.

42. New Orleans Saints- Kevin King, Cornerback, Washington: There are a lot of different directions New Orleans can go, but doubling down on athletic corners in the first two rounds makes sense for this woeful defense.

43. Philadelphia Eagles- Dalvin Cook, Running Back, FSU: The Eagles need a true home run threat out of the backfield and Dalvin Cook can bring that dynamic in the passing game or running game.

44. Buffalo Bills- Curtis Samuel, Offensive Player, Ohio State: After losing Robert Woods, the Bills need to add a playmaker to their offense opposite Sammy Watkins.

45. Arizona Cardinals- Deshone Kizer, Quarterback, Notre Dame: Despite being incredibly gifted, Kizer fell out of the first due to inconsistency. Coming into an environment where he can sit and learn from a great coaching staff will be valuable.

46. Indianapolis Colts- Malik McDowell, Defensive Line, Michigan State: Similar to taking Chris Jones last year, Chris Ballard takes a chance on a gifted defensive linemen with some effort questions. Potentially huge payoff.

47. Baltimore Ravens- Raekwon McMillan, Linebacker, Ohio State: The Ravens need to continue to rebuild their defense and McMillan is a true defensive quarterback to do so with.

48. Minnesota Vikings- Taylor Moton, Offensive Line, WMU: Teams like Moton at tackle or guard but there is no doubt the Vikings could use upgrades at both.

49. Washington- JuJu Smith Schuster, Wide Receiver, USC: After losing Desean Jackson and Pierre Garcon to free agency, Washington needs to add youth and physicality to their receiving corps.

50. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Joe Mixon, Running Back, Oklahoma: Joe Mixon’s off the field issues scared teams out of taking him in the first round, but having Mixon in an offense with Mike Evans, Desean Jackson and OJ Howard might be to good to pass up for the Bucs.

51. Denver Broncos- Zach Cunningham, Linebacker, Vanderbilt: The Bronco’s run defense took a major step back last year with Danny Trevathan in Chicago. Cunningham fixes that immediately.

52. Cleveland Browns from Tennessee Titans- Marcus Williams, Safety, Utah: After getting Jabrill Peppers, pairing him with an athletic ball hawk would massively improve the Browns’ secondary.

53. Detroit Lions- Alvin Kamara, Running Back, Tennessee: The Lions could go a lot of directions, but they may bank on Alvin Kamara’s high upside to boost their running game.

54. Miami Dolphins- Chidobe Awuzie, Cornerback, Colorado: The Dolphins should continue to upgrade their defense with an athletic, feisty cornerback.

55. New York Giants- Jaleel Johnson, Defensive Tackle, Iowa: The Giants offset the loss of Jon Hankins with a physical and technically sound interior defender.

56. Oakland Raiders- Sidney Jones, Cornerback, Washington: The Raiders should take a chance on Jones’ health given their woeful secondary. If he can return to form, they could have the two best cornerbacks in this draft.

57. Houston Texans- Pat Elflein, Center, Ohio State: The Texans do not have a ton of pressing needs, so upgrading their line for Deshaun Watson would be a smart choice.

58. Seattle Seahawks- Akhello Witherspoon, Cornerback, Colorado: The Seahawks need to add youth to their secondary and Witherspoon’s athletic ability, size and ball skills are a perfect fit.

59. Kansas City Chiefs- Tyus Bowser, Linebacker, Houston: A bit out of left field, but Bowser is a guy who can play inside or outside in Kansas City’s scheme and work well with their blitz heavy philosophy.

60. Dallas Cowboys- Cordrea Tankersley, Cornerback, Clemson: Dallas needs to improve their secondary and Tankersley would be an immediate impact man coverage corner.

61. Green Bay Packers- Quincy Wilson, Cornerback, Florida: The Packers seem to prioritize size in their secondary so Wilson makes a lot of sense given his build and upside.

62. Pittsburgh Steelers- Fabian Moreau, Cornerback, UCLA: The Steelers continue to get younger on defense here with a solid cover cornerback.

63. Atlanta Falcons- Tedric Thompson, Safety, Colorado: The Falcons adding a ball hawk to the back of their young secondary would be a great move.

64. Carolina Panthers from New England Patriots- Carlos Henderson, Wide Receiver, LATech: The Panthers need speed on offense. Having Henderson as a deep threat could take pressure off the middle of the field passing game.

THIRD ROUND

65. Cleveland Browns- Chris Wormley, Defensive Lineman, Michigan: The Effort to rebuild Cleveland’s defense continues with a high upside and versatile lineman.

66. San Francisco 49ers- Taywan Taylor, Wide Receiver, Western Kentucky: The 49ers need to add speed to their rebuilding offense. Here’s how to start.

67. San Francisco 49ers from Chicago Bears- Rasul Douglas, Cornerback, WVU: A long, ball hawking cornerback to a rebuilding defense makes sense.

68. Jacksonville Jaguars- Isaac Asiata, Guard, Utah: This would continue to reubuild the offensive philosophy to being a more physical football team.

69. Los Angeles Rams- Dion Dawkins, Offensive Line, Temple: The Rams need to continue to fix their offensive line.

70. New York Jets- Isaiah Ford, Wide Receiver, Virginia Tech: With Brandon Marshall out of town and Eric Decker on the mend from injury, the Jets would be smart to add a young, polished and dependable wide receiver.

71. Los Angeles Chargers- Tarell Basham, Edge Rusher, Ohio: The Chargers could add more youth to their front lines with this strong, physical pass rusher.

72. New England Patriots from Carolina Panthers- Vince Biegel, Linebacker, Wisconsin: Biegel is a versatile guy who can rush, cover and defend the run. Perfect patriot.

73. Cincinnati Bengals- Carlos Watkins, Defensive Tackle, Clemson: The Bengals would benefit from adding youth their defensive line, especially players with Watkins’ motor.

74. Baltimore Ravens from Philadelphia Eagles- Bucky Hodges, Tight End, Virginia Tech: It is an unknown as to what position Bucky Hodges should be playing in the NFL. However, getting Joe Flacco that big of a target in the passing game would be very smart.

75. Buffalo Bills- Josh Jones, Safety, NC State: The Bills can add more speed and physicality to their secondary with this pick.

76. New Orleans Saints- Eddie Jackson, Safety, Alabama: The Saints should really take advantage of the secondary talent in this draft.

77. Arizona Cardinals- Jake Butt, Tight End, Michigan: Jake Butt’s injury pushed him down in the draft, but he would be a nice piece in a the Cardinals passing game.

78. Baltimore Ravens- Teez Tabor, Cornerback, Florida: It would be such a Ravens thing to do to take the guy everyone loves but fell due to off the field concerns.

79. Minnesota Vikings- Marcus Maye, Safety, Florida: Pairing a solid safety like Maye with a playmaker like Harrison Smith would be outstanding.

80. Indianapolis Colts- George Kittle, Tight End, Iowa: A strong blocker and very good athlete, the Colts could upgrade their offense with a traditional tight end.

81. Washington- Samaje Perine, Running Back, Oklahoma: Washington gets a big bodied and physical runner to take pressure of their passing game.

82. Denver Broncos- Dalvin Tomlinson, Defensive Tackle, Alabama: The Broncos can strengthen their defensive interior with a huge, high motor run defender.

83. Tennessee Titans- Ryan Switzer, Wide Receiver, UNC: Yet another receiver for Marcus Mariota to exploit.

84. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Jourdan Lewis, Cornerback, Michigan: The Bucaneers need to improve their secondary.

85. Detroit Lions- KD Cannon, Wide Receiver, Baylor: The Lions would benefit from adding a true deep threat to their offense.

86. Minnesota Vikings from Miami Dolphins- D’Onta Foreman, Running Back, Texas: The Vikings need a bell cow to take pressure off of the passing game and Foreman is well experienced at that.

87. New York Giants- Jamaal Williams, Running Back, BYU: The Giants have a pretty strong roster and adding a power element to their offense would make a high upside unit even harder to defend.

88. Oakland Raiders- Kareem Hunt, Running Back, Toledo: Even with Marshawn Lynch in town, the Raiders need a long term option at running back. Hunt can contribute early as a change of pace back and grow into a bigger role.

89. Houston Texans- Michael Roberts, Tight End, Toledo: Why not give Deshaun Watson another big target in the end zone?

90. Seattle Seahawks- Ethan Pocic, Center, LSU: Keep upgrading that offensive line for Russ.

91. Buffalo Bills from Kansas City Chiefs- Dorian Johnson, Guard, Pitt: The Bills have a strong run offense that they should continue to build around with line depth.

92. Dallas Cowboys- Jadar Johnson, Safety, Clemson: Dallas adding another ball hawk to their secondary who could push to start would be a good move.

93. Green Bay Packers- Chris Godwin, Wide Receiver, Penn State: Godwin is the type of receiver Green Bay loves and he could see a big role early on.

94. Pittsburgh Steelers- Davis Webb, Quarterback, Cal: Teams seem to be enamored by Webb’s arm and size, so it makes sense that the Steelers could take a chance on him as a developmental player.

95. Seattle Seahawks from Atlanta Falcons- Josh Harvey Clemons, Safety, Louisville: It almost makes too much sense that the Seahawks would look for a massive safety to eventually replace Kam Chancellor.

96. New England Patriots- Gerald Everett, Tight End, South Alabama: The Patriots would be wise to add an athletic tight end given Rob Gronkowski’s health.

97. Miami Dolphins (compensatory selection)- Larry Ogunjobi, Defensive Tackle, Charlotte: Ogunjobi is a raw, high upside defensive tackle who has immensely good character.

98. Carolina Panthers (compensatory selection)- Corn Elder, Cornerback, Miami: The Panthers need to upgrade their secondary and Elder’s coverage and tackling ability will be of value.

99. Philadelphia Eagles from Baltimore Ravens (compensatory selection)- Desmond King, Cornerback, Iowa: The Eagles need to upgrade their cornerback position. King is a smaller cornerback, but his physical style of play, his savvy at the position and his ball skills would give the Eagles a good dynamic in their defensive backfield.

100. Tennessee Titans from Los Angeles Rams (compensatory selection): Cameron Sutton, Cornerback, Tennessee: The Titans need more youth in their secondary. Cam Sutton staying in state would give them a versatile and dependable cover cornerback.

101. Denver Broncos (compensatory selection)-Jeremy McNichols, Running Back, Boise State: McNichols is a solid all around back who can give the Broncos guy with speed and hands out of the backfield.

101. Seattle Seahawks (compensatory selection)- Dede Westbrook, Wide Receiver, Oklahoma: Despite off the field issues, the Seahawks could take a chance on Dede Westbrook’s speed.

103. New Orleans Saints from New England Patriots through Cleveland Browns (compensatory selection)- Nathan Peterman, Quarterback, Pitt: Head scratchingly, the NFL seems to like Nathan Peterman’s upside so maybe the Saints go looking for Drew Brees’ heir.

104. Kansas City Chiefs (compensatory selection)- Marlon Mack, Running Back, USF: The Chiefs don’t need a running back, but Marlon Mack would give them a home run threat element that they lost when Jamaal Charles left town.

105. Pittsburgh Steelers (compensatory selection)- Josh Reynolds, Wide Receiver, Texas A&M: The Steelers love drafting receivers every single year. Reynolds is a big-bodied player who can dominate at the catch point.

106. Seattle Seahawks (compensatory selection)- Tanoh Kpassagnon, Edge Defender, Villanova: The Seahawks should be upgrading their defensive line and everyone knows how much they like big athletes.

107. New York Jets (compensatory selection)- Josh Dobbs, Quarterback, Tennessee: Taking a swing on a quarterback in the middle rounds who has Dobbs’ brains, mobility and accuracy could pay off for them. They would benefit from taking a chance on a quarterback.
