When the second round begins Friday evening, expect some clubs to trade into the first ten selections. Teams reset their boards Thursday following the completion of the first round and there will quickly be some recognition of the top remaining talent. With that said, it’s still difficult to predict who will go where.
Eric Galko and Greg Gabriel teamed up for this mock, with Greg handling the odd picks and Eric the even.
34. Washington Redskins: Xavier Su’a-Filo, OG, UCLA: The Redskins fill a need on the O-line.
36. Oakland Raiders: Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State: The Raiders take care of their QB need here.
37. Atlanta Falcons: Jeremy Attaochu, OLB/DE, Georgia Tech: The Falcons were looking to trade back into the first round for a pass rusher. A good one falls to them here.
40. Seattle Seahawks: Dave Yankey, OG, Stanford: Yankey might not be the best athlete, but he is a tough, hard-nosed and technique sound lineman.
42. Tennessee Titans: DeMarcus Lawrence, DE/OLB, Boise St: Lawrence is the edge rusher the Titans have been looking to acquire.
43. New York Giants: Ra’SHede Hageman, DT, Minnesota: Many thought that Hageman was a lock for the first round.
45. Detroit Lions: Chris Boreland, LB, Wisconsin: A tough, instinctive play making Mike backer.
48. Baltimore Ravens: C.J. Fiedorowicz, TE, Iowa: A consistent and reliable TE who can play both in tight and flexed out.
49. New York Jets: Devante Adams, WR, Fresno State: A tall, big-play receiver.
51. Chicago Bears: Will Sutton, DT, Arizona State: A solid 3-technique who can play the run and rush the passer.
52. Arizona Cardinals: A.J. McCarron, QB, Alabama: A.J. will back-up current starter Carson Palmer for a year or two and then step in to run the offense.
53. Green Bay Packers: Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington: If it weren’t for the foot injury, ASJ would have gone higher.
54. Philadelphia Eagles: Bruce Ellington, WR, South Carolina: Quick and fast playmaker who is perfect for the slot.
55. Cincinnati Bengals: Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri: The Bengals add pass rushing depth with Missouri’s Ealy.
56. San Francisco 49ers: Kyle Van Noy, LB, BYU: Too good to pass up at this spot.
57. San Diego Chargers: Joel Bitonio, OL, Nevada: The versatile lineman can play guard or tackle.
59. Indianapolis Colts: Carlos Hyde, RB, Ohio State: Just in case Trent Richardson doesn’t pick up his game.
61. San Francisco 49ers: Cody Latimer, WR, Indiana: Tall receiver with great straight-line speed and hands.
62. New England Patriots: Troy Niklas, TE, Notre Dame: The big TE is raw, but has unlimited upside.
63. Denver Broncos: DaQuan Jones, DT, Penn State: A big inside player to help an already strong defense.
64. Seattle Seahawks: Jarvis Landry, WR, LSU: Until he ran poorly at the Combine, everyone thought Landry was a lock for the first round.
