2016 NFL Draft: Round 2 Mock

Round one is in the books, and there are still a lot of quality players available, especially along the defensive line. Here is how Round 2 could shake out.


32. Cleveland Browns - DE/OLB Kamalei Correa, Boise State. The Browns lack ideal pass rushing from the 3-4 alignment.

33. Tennessee Titans - OLB Myles Jack, UCLA. With three second round picks, the Titans could gamble on Jack's potential.

34. Dallas Cowboys - DE Kevin Dodd, Clemson. The Cowboys are interested in a quarterback, but I think it would be silly to ignore defense and take an inferior prospect like Connor Cook or Christian Hackenberg.

35. San Diego Chargers - CB/S TJ Green, Clemson. The Chargers fortify the secondary with a player who can play either cornerback or safety.

36. Baltimore Ravens - DE/OLB Emmanuel Ogbah, Oklahoma State. Ogbah is not a complete end, but he can get after the quarterback. Baltimore needs pass rushing help bad.

37. Kansas City Chiefs - CB/S Sean Davis, Maryland. Davis is built like ex-Chiefs corenrback Sean Smith. Kansas City needs help opposite Marcus Peters.

38. Jacksonville Jaguars - DE/OLB Noah Spence, Eastern Kentucky. Spence is a risk due to off the field concerns, but on the field, he would give Jacksonville yet another pass rusher for Gus Bradley to utilize.

39. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - OLB/S Su'a Cravens, USC. Cravens could pass at safety, but his future lies at strongside linebacker.

40. New York Giants - OG Cody Whitehair, Kansas State. The Giants decided to pass on Laremy Tunsil in round one. Offensive line is still a very big need area. Whitehair is solid, and should start from day one.

41. Chicago Bears - DE/DT Jarran Reed, Alabama. Reed's lack of pass rushing ability pushed him to the second round, but his beef would make him an ideal fit in Chiago's 3-4 alignment.

42. Miami Dolphins - CB Mackenzie Alexander, Clemson. Alexander does not offer the size Miami might prefer, but the Dolphins have to come out of this draft with secondary help.

43. Tennessee Titans - MLB Reggie Ragland, Alabama. A classic 3-4 middle linebacker thumper, Ragland and Myles Jack could represent the future middle linebacker tandem in Tennessee.

44. Oakland Raiders - DT Andrew Billings, Baylor. Billings is able to penetrate and get after the quarterback from the interior, and would be a nice compliment to Dan Williams.

45. Tennessee Titans - WR Sterling Shepard, Oklahoma. The Titans are committed to getting Marcus Mariota help. Shepard makes an ideal slot receiver at the next level.

46. Detriot Lions - CB Kendall Fuller, Virginia Tech. Fuller might be more talented than his older brother Kyle. He would have been a first round pick if not for a serious injury.

47. New Orleans Saints - OG/OT Le'Raven Clark, Texas Tech. The Saints are committed to building a strong running game. Clark is a project, but should be a second round pick due to talent.

48. Indianapolis Colts - RB Derrick Henry, Alabama. Alabama running backs have not fared that well in the NFL, but Henry is good value here. He is a bowling ball who will help take some pressure off of Andrew Luck and the passing game.

49. Buffalo Bills - QB Christian Hackenberg, Penn State. Hackenberg will go somewhere in the second round. I am not sure where. Buffalo would like to draft a quarterback to develop behind Tyrod Taylor.

50. Atlanta Falcons - TE Hunter Henry, Alabama. The tight end position was en vogue a few years ago, but has fallen off considerably since then. Henry is the most talented in a weak group.

51. New York Jets - OT Jason Spriggs, Indiana. The Jets need two tackles. Spriggs is great value here and could eventually be passable on the left side.

52. Houston Texans - WR Pharoh Cooper, South Carolina. Could the Texans go back to back at wide reciever? Cooper would be a very good third receiver, who Houston could use in a variety of ways.

53. Washington Redskins - RB CJ Prosise, Notre Dame. The Redskins surprisingly went wide receiver in round one, so why not double up on offense? Matt Jones might not hold up full time, and a rotation at running back would make the most sense.

54. Minnesota Vikings - CB/S Vonn Bell, Ohio State. Bell may be too small to play safety full time, but could backup all four secondary positions in Washington.

55. Cincinnati Bengals - WR Michael Thomas, Ohio State. The Bengals missed out on the receiver run in round one. Thomas is raw, but would have been a first round pick had he played for a team that properly showcased him.

56. Seattle Seahawks - OG Christian Westerman, Arizona State. The Seahawks will likely spend a few picks to address the worst offensive line in football.

57. Green Bay Packers - DE/OLB Kyler Fackrell, Utah State. Fackrell may be a bit atheltically challenged, but can do a little bit of everything on the football field.

58. Pittsburgh Steelers - OLB Josh Perry, Ohio State. Perry might not be the pure pass rusher the Steelers covet, but he can do a bit of everything and has ideal 3-4 outside linebacker size.

59. Kansas City Chiefs - DE/DT Hassan Ridgeway, Texas. Andy Reid is always looking to beef up both the offensive and defensive lines.

60. New England Patriots - WR Leonte Carroo, Rutgers. The Patriots love to draft Rutgers players. Carroo does not have the name as other receivers drafted, but could start immediately in New England.

61. New England Patriots - DT Javon Hargrave, South Carolina State. The Patriots cut Dominique Easley, and always prefer to have a deep group of defensive lineman.

62. Carolina Panthers - CB Xavien Howard, Baylor. The Panthers stay true to their board, but eventually they have to address some holes. Cornerback is a huge need area.

63. Denver Broncos - OG/C Nick Martin. Martin is not his brother Zach but should be a solid starter at either guard or center.
