Second-Day Mock Draft

Friday, April 26, 2013


For the draft's final two days, be sure to follow along with Mike Clay's NFL Draft Tracker, which updates each selection and also provides full details as each draft-day trade unfolds.

Adam Levitan recalls the most memorable moments of day one.

This is my mock projection of the next two rounds:

33. Jaguars -- Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib

Day One Addition(s): RT Luke Joeckel

Nassib is strongly rumored to be the top QB on Jacksonville's board.

34. 49ers -- Stanford TE Zach Ertz

Day One Addition(s): FS Eric Reid

Ertz is a pass-catching upgrade in the old Delanie Walker role.

35. Eagles -- Alabama NT Jesse Williams

Day One Addition(s): RT Lane Johnson

Philly's defense gets more physical by selecting immovable Williams.

36. Lions -- Florida State OT Menelik Watson

Day One Addition(s): RE Ezekiel Ansah

Offensive line is Detroit's biggest need after the Ansah pick.

37. Bengals -- Florida International S Johnathan Cyprien

Day One Addition(s): TE Tyler Eifert

The Bengals may have drafted Cyprien 21st had Eifert not fallen.

38. Cardinals -- North Carolina State QB Mike Glennon

Day One Addition(s): RG Jonathan Cooper

Carson Palmer is 33. Glennon becomes Bruce Arians' QB of the future.

39. Jets -- West Virginia QB Geno Smith

Day One Addition(s): CB Dee Milliner, DT Sheldon Richardson

The Jets' focus turns to offense on day two. Geno is their top QB.

40. Titans -- Florida State DE Tank Carradine

Day One Addition(s): RG Chance Warmack

Tennessee needs another pass rusher to mask its shaky secondary.

41. Bills -- Tennessee WR Justin Hunter

Day One Addition(s): QB E.J. Manuel

Hunter is the field stretcher Buffalo has lacked since Lee Evans' prime.

42. Raiders -- Kentucky OG Larry Warford

Day One Addition(s): CB D.J. Hayden

The Raiders are desperate for power blockers. Warford is a mauler.

43. Buccaneers -- Cincinnati TE Travis Kelce

Day One Addition(s): CB Darrelle Revis

Kelce is a fantastic all-around tight end and can start right away.

44. Panthers -- Boise State CB Jamar Taylor

Day One Addition(s): DT Star Lotulelei

After stealing Star, cornerback leaps atop Carolina's list of needs.

45. Chargers -- Arkansas-Pine Bluff LT Terron Armstead

Day One Addition(s): RT D.J. Fluker

GM Tom Telesco isn't finished adding talent to a brutal offensive line.

46. Bills -- Kansas State ILB Arthur Brown

The Bills add physicality at inside 'backer by picking thumper Brown.

47. Cowboys -- South Carolina S D.J. Swearinger

Day One Addition(s): G/C Travis Frederick

With the O-Line squared away, safety is Dallas' top remaining need.

48. Steelers -- Alabama RB Eddie Lacy

Day One Addition(s): OLB Jarvis Jones

Lacy is the back the Steelers hoped Jonathan Dwyer would be.

49. Giants -- Notre Dame ILB Manti Te'o

Day One Addition(s): LG Justin Pugh

Te'o is good value here for the middle linebacker-needy G-Men.

50. Bears -- USC QB Matt Barkley

Day One Addition(s): G/T Kyle Long

The Bears put contract-year QB Jay Cutler on notice with this pick.

51. Redskins -- Tennessee Tech WR Da'Rick Rogers

Day One Addition(s): None. See RG3 trade.

Mike Shanahan could envision Rogers as his next Brandon Marshall.

52. Patriots -- SMU DE Margus Hunt

Day One Addition(s): None. Traded out.

The Pats would've considered Hunt had they stayed the 29th pick.

53. Bengals -- North Carolina RB Giovani Bernard

Bernard adds playmaking ability to a backfield that badly needs it.

54. Chiefs (Trade with Dolphins) -- LSU ILB Kevin Minter

Day One Addition(s): LT Eric Fisher

After trading Branden Albert, the Chiefs acquire a plug-and-play starter.

55. Packers -- UCLA RB Johnathan Franklin

Day One Addition(s): RE Datone Jones

GM Ted Thompson can shore up running back long term with Franklin.

56. Seahawks -- San Diego State TE Gavin Escobar

Day One Addition(s): WR Percy Harvin

Long and athletic, Escobar creates mismatches in the passing game.

57. Texans -- Connecticut ILB Sio Moore

Day One Addition(s): WR DeAndre Hopkins

Moore could be a day-one starter next to Brian Cushing inside.

58. Broncos -- Michigan State RB Le'Veon Bell

Day One Addition(s): DT Sylvester Williams

Bell can pass block, which is critical in Peyton Manning's offense.

59. Patriots -- California WR Keenan Allen

The receiver-needy Pats can't pass up the value of Allen at No. 59.

60. Falcons -- Texas A&M DE Damontre Moore

Day One Addition(s): CB Desmond Trufant

Moore needs to get stronger, but he dominated in the SEC.

61. 49ers -- Ohio State DT Johnathan Hankins

Hankins adds bulk and depth to San Francisco's thin defensive line.

62. Ravens -- USC WR Robert Woods

Day One Addition(s): SS Matt Elam

Woods is a classic Z receiver and perfect complement to Torrey Smith.
