True Blue Fans Mock Draft 3.0: Round 2

As I mentioned in Round 1, these picks will be affected by veteran Free Agency. Some picks have changed due to projected trades. However, after Round 1, there aren’t any more trade projections as prospects 20-75 are basically equal.

Round 2

1. Houston Texans

Morgan Moses – OT – Virginia

Houston has to protect Bortles. Drafting Moses gives them a solid starter at RT that can move to LT when needed.

2. Washington

Bradley Roby – CB – Ohio State

Roby is a solid cover CB who immediately helps a flawed Washington secondary.

3. Cleveland Browns

Carlos Hyde – RB – Ohio State

After moving Trent Richardson, Cleveland failed to give the team a lead RB. Hyde is a Buckeye that would get Browns fans something to cheer about.

4. Kansas City Chiefs (from Oakland)

David Yankey – OG – Stanford

Yankey did not perform well at the Combine and has slid on many boards. KC will likely lose both Geoff Schwartz and Jon Asamoah in free agency so Yankey can step in and play immediately.

5. St. Louis Rams

Cyrus Kouandjio – OT – Alabama

Kouandjio did not perform well this season and has several red flags but it’s like Fischer stops his slide here. It wouldn’t be surprising if he fell further though.

6. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Scott Crichton – DE/OLB – Oregon State

The Bucs and HC Lovie Smith are likely to take the best pass rusher available after taking Robinson in the first round. Crichton offers a versatile lineman that can get after the QB.

7. Jacksonville Jaguars

Xavier Su’a-Filo – OG – UCLA

Jacksonville recently cut their starting OG. Su’a-Filo provides them with an immediate upgrade at the position.

8. Cleveland Browns (from Minnesota)

Jimmy Garoppolo – QB – Eastern Illinois

Cleveland missed out on the top 5 QBs in this draft and take the hot name that some scouts believe could turn out to be a solid pro QB.

9. Buffalo Bills

Kyle Van Noy – OLB – BYU

Van Noy is a versatile defender that can make plays. He’s adept at rushing the passer but needs work in coverage.

10. Tennessee Titans

Kyle Fuller – CB – Virginia Tech

Tennesse will need a physical replacement for Verner, who is likely to leave in free agency. Fuller gives them that physical presense.

11. New York Giants

Tre Mason – RB – Auburn

The Giants need an insurance policy for David Wilson. Mason ran well at Auburn and would be a more reliable option.

12. St. Louis Rams

Marcus Roberson – CB – Florida

Roberson gives Fischer another solid CB. Pairing him with Jenkins and the Rams have a secondary to be feared.

13. Detroit Lions

Jimmie Ward – SS – Northern Illinois

Detroit needs a solid cover guy in their secondary. Ward gives them a playmaker who is willing to come up and make a tackle when needed.

14. Pittsburgh Steelers

Trent Murphy – DE – Stanford

After Worilids signed his tag, the Steelers will have some tough decisions to make and will likely cut a veteran. Murphy is a hard worker that will fit well in the blue collar Steelers locker room.

15. Dallas Cowboys

Stephon Tuitt – DT/DE – Notre Dame

Dallas needs help all over their defense. Tuitt’s stock has fallen greatly over the past year but he could be a perfect fit in Monte Kiffin’s defense.

16. Baltimore Ravens

Kelvin Benjamin – WR – Florida State

Baltimore greatly missed the size and playmaking of Anquan Bolden last season. Benjamin gives them a lesser version of Bolden.

17. New York Jets

Austin Sefarian-Jenkins – TE – Washington

The Jets just keep adding weapons for Geno Smith. Sefarian-Jenkins offers a promising safety valve for the times Geno panicks and channels his inner Mark Sanchez.

18. Miami Dolphins

Joel Bitonio – OT – Nevada

Miami solidify their issues at the OT spot with Bitonio, a little known but highly regarded player out of Nevada.

19. Chicago Bears

Lamarcus Joyner – CB/FS – Florida State

Joyner is a versatile player and could easily move to FS but also would be an immediate replacement after Charles Tillman leaves via free agency.

20. Arizona Cardinals

Zach Mettenberger – QB – LSU

QBs are always overvalued in the draft. Mettenberger is more likely a 3rd/4th round guy, but Arians likes himself “big” QBs like Mettenberger.

21. Green Bay Packers

Deone Bucannon – SS – Washington State

The Packers needs Safety help. Bucannon is a promising SS and could help with their secondary problems.

22. Philadelphia Eagles

Jeremiah Attaochu – OLB – Georgia Tech

Philadelphia needs to help their secondary as much as possible. One of the ways to do that is to get after the QB with your pass rush, something Attaochu does quite well.

23. Cincinnati Bengals

Pierre Desir – CB – Lindenwood

Yes, the Bengals took a CB in the 1st, however, it wouldn’t be surprising to see them invest twice in easily their weakest position.

24. San Francisco 49ers (from Kansas City)

Marcus Martin – OC – USC

The 49ers are allowing their former starting OC to test free agency. Martin is one of the top OC in the draft and could come in to compete right away.

25. San Diego Chargers

DaQuan Jones – DT/NT – Penn State

To run the other Pagano’s defense, the Chargers need a legitimate NT. Jones provides just that.

26. New Orleans Saints

Martavis Bryant – WR – Clemson

With the impending franchise tag fight with Jimmy Graham looming, Drew Brees is going to need another big pass catcher to throw to in the red zone.

27. Indianapolis Colts

Jordan Matthews – WR – Vanderbilt

Another mock, and Matthews falls to the Colts again due to the extreme depth at the WR position. Matthews is one of the most comlete WRs in this draft. He has prototypical WR size at 6’3″ and 212 lbs, and the largest hands of any WR at the Combine. Matthews can develop into a legitimate WR1 to replace Reggie Wayne. Matthew is a tireless worker, has great hands, and runs great routes. He consistently put up the top receiving numbers in the SEC even with defenses knowing he was Vanderbilt’s only receiving option and with no legitimate QB to throw him the ball. While WR is not the biggest need for the Colts, Matthews is too good a player to pass up at this position.

28. Carolina Panthers

Davante Adams – WR – Fresno State

Steve Smith can’t play forever and Adams gives Cam Newton another WR to chuck the ball downfield to.

29. San Francisco 49ers

Ahmad Dixon – SS – Baylor

San Francisco will likely need a replacement for Dante [W]Hitner, the W is silent. Dixon gives them a quality replacement.

30. New England Patriots

Dominique Easley – DT – Florida

Easley provides the Patriots insurance for Vince Wilfork if he’s unable to make a full recovery. While Easley is not the prototypical NT, he is a big body that can eat up blockers and provide a pass rush up the middle.

31. Denver Broncos

Donte Moncrief – WR – Mississippi

Denver must realize Eric Decker will not likely be with the team next season. Moncrief gives the Broncos a guy who can fill in as the 3rd/4th receiving option in Denver’s pass happy offense.

32. Seattle Seahawks

Stanley Jean-Baptiste – CB – Nebraska

Jean-Baptiste fits the mold of what Seattle likes in their CBs. He’s big, physical and not afraid to mix it up. With Brandon Browner leaving in free agency, after suprisingly being reinstated by the NFL, this pick makes sense.
