True Blue Fans Mock Draft 4.0: Round 2

As I mentioned in Round 1, these picks will be affected by veteran Free Agency as well as Pro Days and Interviews. Also, for time and my own sanity, all of the remaining rounds will be discussed speed dating style. One sentence and done. Well, except for the Colts, of course.

Round 2

1. Houston Texans

Dee Ford – DE/OLB – Auburn

Dee Ford gives Houston a chance to pressure off the edge, something they’ve lacked outside of J.J. Watt.

2. Washington

Kyle Van Noy – OLB – BYU

Orakpo is aging and Van Noy could be his replacement if Orakpo is not brought back after this season.

3. Cleveland Browns

David Yankey – OG – Stanford

Yankey is a solid get here for the Browns after having poor post-season workouts.

4. Oakland Raiders

Derek Carr – QB – Fresno State

Carr is my 3rd rated QB, yes, ahead of Johnny Football, and could do very well if placed in the right system.

5. Atlanta Falcons

Jace Amaro – TE – Texas Tech

With Tony Gonzalez leaving Atlanta needs to address the TE position after their spending spree in free agency on both offensive and defensive lines.

6. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Xavier Su’a-Filo – OG – UCLA

My guess is Lovie tries to move back to Dungy-ball and tries running the ball more often so Su’a-Filo makes sense.

7. Jacksonville Jaguars

Carlos Hyde – RB – Ohio State

Jacksonville did sign Gerhart but I’m not convinced he’s their back of the future.

8. Minnesota Vikings

Jimmie Ward – FS – Northern Illinois

Ward could go in the first round or drop into the third, but Minnesota needs his playmaking abilities.

9. Buffalo Bills

Cyrus Kouandjio – OT – Alabama

Kouandjio was considered as a first rounder up until the end of this season and the post-season workouts have not helped him.

10. Tennessee Titans

Tre Mason – RB – Auburn

With Chris Johnson likely out, Tennessee needs a replacement.

11. New York Giants

Timmy Jernigan – DT – Florida State

I’ve not heard much on Jernigan since his stock initially rose but the Giants need a presense in the middle of their line.

12. St. Louis Rams

Deone Bucannon – S – Washington State

Bucannon is a playmaker that Fischer will love at the back of his defense.

13. Detroit Lions

Scott Crichton – DE – Oregon State

Pass rush is an immediate need for the Lions.

14. Pittsburgh Steelers

Stephon Tuitt – DE – Notre Dame

Tuitt has fallen greatly since the end of the season, but Pittsburgh would be happy to help cushion his fall.

15. Dallas Cowboys

Trent Murphy – DE – Stanford

Dallas needs a solid pass rusher from the DL and Murphy is a never quit, high-motor guy.

16. Baltimore Ravens

Weston Richburg – OC – Colorado State

The Ravens are a mess at OC and Richburg could step in and play immediately.

17. New York Jets

Pierre Desir – CB – Lindenwood

Desir would give Rex Ryan a solid CB to plug in right away after losing out on basically every CB on the market.

18. Miami Dolphins

Bishop Sankey – RB – Washington

Sankey gives Miami a better option at RB than anyone they have on their current roster.

19. Chicago Bears

Lamarcus Joyner – CB/FS – Florida State

Chicago needs secondary help and Joyner would be a versatile upgrade who can play both CB and S.

20. Arizona Cardinals

Jimmy Garappolo – QB – Eastern Illinois

The Mad Kangol Hatter strikes again by drafting his QB of the future.

21. Green Bay Packers

Austin Safarian-Jenkins – TE – Washington

Green Bay desparately needs a TE to help Aaron Rodgers as his safety valve.

22. Philadelphia Eagles

Jordan Tripp – OLB – Montana

I’ve been a huge fan of Tripp since I started draft prep and Eagles fans will be happy with the versatile skill set he brings.

23. Cincinnati Bengals

Marcus Roberson – CB – Florida

The Bengals need secondary help and could realistically take CBs with their first two picks.

24. San Francisco 49ers (from Kansas City)

Jordan Matthews – WR Vanderbilt

San Francisco needs another playmaker with all the injuries that Michael Crabtree has every year.

25. San Diego Chargers

Martavius Bryant – WR – Clemson

The “other” Clemson WR would be a perfect fit for a Chargers team in need of WR help.

26. New Orleans Saints

Keith McGill – CB – Utah

New Orleans could use another big CB to play press-man coverage in Rob Ryan’s aggressive defense.

27. Indianapolis Colts

Jarvis Landry – WR – LSU

The best quality in this draft is at the WR position. Ryan Grigson has consistently said he loves to draft players that fall due to their performances in post-season workouts. Landry is most definitely one of those guys. He’s a strong handed WR who sets up his routes beautifully. Also, he’s a willing and able blocker. While he doens’t have the speed of some of his WR counterparts, he makes up for it in toughness and productivity.

Other potential picks:
Chris Borland – ILB – Wisconsin (unlikely due to D’Qwell Jackson signing)
Donte Moncrief – WR – Mississippi
Davante Adams – WR – Freson State
Jeremiah Attaochu – OLB – Georgia Tech

28. Carolina Panthers

Joel Bitonio – OT – Nevada

Most of Carolina’s OL retired this offseason so they’ll need to replace them and quickly.

29. San Francisco 49ers

Marcus Martin – C – USC

San Francisco has not resigned their starting C and Martin could play immediately.

30. New England Patriots

Troy Niklas – TE – Notre Dame

Niklas is a versatile big TE who is a willing blocker and very productive while at Notre Dame.

31. Denver Broncos

Chris Borland – ILB – Wisconsin

Denver needs to shore up the middle of that defense and Borland could be one of the most instinctive LBs in this class.

32. Seattle Seahawks

Jack Mewhort – OT – Ohio State

With how much Seattle will likely run the ball, it’s good to have a solid OT prospect who can step in and play if needed.
