Bayless’ Last Minute 2nd Round NFL Mock Draft


 33. OT – Donovan Smith, Penn State

The Titans desperately need a right tackle and have to protect their first-round pick. Smith projects as a right tackle in the NFL.

 34. MLB – Denzel Perryman, Miami

Perryman can fill the MIKE linebacker role and thrive in Lovie Smith’s defense, alongside Lavonte David, to form a dynamic duo. Eric Kendrick is another possibility here too but I like Perryman’s skill set in Tampa better.

 35. CB – Eric Rowe, Utah

Oakland has a lot of needs to fill. Rowe makes sense as he is one of the top players left on the board. Tackle T.J. Clemmings is a possibility here too.

 36. G – A.J. Cann, South Carolina

The Jaguars need a ton of help at guard and Cann is the best available at this juncture. The team could also beef up the secondary, especially when you consider that they face the Colts twice a year, and could consider a cornerback. Running back is another possibility with T.J. Yeldon a possible choice with this pick too.

 37. OLB – Eli Harold, Virginia

The Jets are missing an edge rusher to their vastly improved defense. Harold would be a great fit. The Jets could also take a chance on Randy Gregory, who is a great fit in Bowles defense but also has major red flags. Another option is at running back, where Ameer Abdullah would be a great weapon out of the backfield.

 38. OLB – Hau’Oli Kikaha, Washington

The Redskins need another pass rusher and Kikaha can play OLB in a 3-4. They can also consider a safety here. Landon Collins is a possibility but he is not what the team typically looks for at that position.

 39. DT – Carl Davis, Iowa

The Bears need a nose tackle as they switch over to the 3-4 defense. Davis can tie up blockers and even play a 5-technique defensive end too. Other defensive lineman the team can consider are Eddie Goldman and Mario Edwards.

40. S – Landon Collins, Alabama

Collins could end up being a steal here. He can play in the box and fill an immediate need there. His coverage skills aren’t the greatest though. They could also look at linebacker or defensive lineman here as well.

 41. OT – T.J. Clemmings, Pittsburgh

The Rams might take Dorial Green-Beckham here but their line is awful and Clemmings would instantly compete for the right tackle spot. He is also a fantastic run blocker, which will help their first round pick Todd Gurley. The team also brought in QB Bryce Petty for multiple visits so he could be a choice here too.

 42. RB – Ameer Abdullah, Nebraska

Abdullah has great vision and would be a great fit for a team that uses a zone blocking scheme like Atlanta. His only concerns are his size (5’8) and he is prone to fumbling but other than that he is a home run threat whenever he has the ball. The Falcons could also look at TE Maxx Williams here too as they need help at tight end.

 43. WR – Sammie Coates, Auburn

The Browns need a playmaker and Coates is a vertical threat with great speed and size. The Browns need to get a playmaker on offense with this pick.

 44. CB – Ronald Darby, Florida State

The Saints can also consider a target for Drew Brees here but their secondary needs help. Darby is a potential long-term starter at cornerback.

 45. ILB – Benardrick McKinney, Mississippi State

The Vikings need at least one linebacker in this draft. McKinney is one of the top left on the board here. They could also target a wideout with this selection.

 46. ILB – Eric Kendricks, UCLA

The 49ers need two linebackers to replace Chris Borland and Patrick Willis. Kendricks could be the steal of the second round with this selection.

 47. CB – P.J. Williams, Florida State

Williams can play both man and zone coverage and would be a good fit for the Dolphins. His recent DUI might knock him down to the 3rd round but easily has the talent to get drafted here.

 48. OT – Jake Fisher, Oregon

Fisher could be their new right tackle, allowing them to switch D.J. Fluker to guard. The Chargers O-Line needs help. They could also target an inside linebacker with this pick too.

 49. DE – Mario Edwards, Florida State

The Chiefs could use help at defensive end and Edwards fits in their 3-4 scheme. They could also address the receiver and offensive line positions.

 50. G – Ali Marpet, Hobart

The Bills might take a QB but a middling QB prospect is not what the Bills need. Marpet should be able to adapt to the gap scheme blocking the Bills use and has versatility at all three positions but will likely be a guard in the NFL, a big position of need for the team.

 51. WR – Jaelen Strong, Arizona State

The Texans need a potential number #1 receiver to replace the departed Andre Johnson. Strong is one of the top choices on the board. He is physical and dangerous after the catch. The Texans could also look to add a replacement for Brooks Reed at OLB with this selection.

 52. CB – Jalen Collins, LSU

The Eagles like press corners and Collins fits that bill. He does have a history of fighting with coaches and that can cause him to slip but should be a good fit here. They might reach for a safety here although no one worthy of this pick is available.

 53. DT – Eddie Goldman, Florida State

The Bengals need a run-stuffer. Goldman makes a lot of sense with this pick. The team can also look at a receiver here or possibly TE Maxx Williams.

 54. RB – T.J. Yeldon, Alabama

A running back to accompany Joique Bell would really help this team. Yeldon could the starter for this team week 1. The Lions could also address DT, with Jordan Phillips as a possibility.

 55. DE – Owa Odighizuwa, UCLA

The Cardinals need a pass rusher. They also can look at running back with this choice too. Odighizuwa fits in well with this team though.

 56. CB – Quentin Rollins, Miami (OH)

The Steelers really have to address the secondary with this pick. Rollins is above-average in both man and zone coverage. I like him with this pick.

 57. WR – Devin Smith, Ohio State

Smith gives the Panthers a deep threat. I am not a fan of his personally but this team needs a vertical threat. They can also look to draft an offensive tackle here as well.

 58. TE – Maxx Williams, Minnesota

The Ravens can really address their passing game in this draft with Williams. The Ravens could also spruce up their offense by adding a running back here with this pick.

 59. G – Mitch Morse, Missouri

Morse is athletic and a good fit for a zone blocking scheme. Kubiak likes athletic lineman. The Broncos could also look at a defensive lineman here with this pick as well.

 60. OLB – Randy Gregory, Nebraska

The rumor is that Dallas likes Gregory and he might fall this far but he fills a need here. They could also look at running back or addressing both lines with this pick.

 61. S – James Sample, Louisville

Sample is a tone-setter in the box and the Colts have next to nothing at safety. The draft is weak at the safety position so a reach on a guy like Sample would not be out of the question.

 62. DT – Jordan Phillips. Oklahoma

Although not a pressing need, Phillips has enough potential to warrant this pick. His knock is that he has a poor motor. Maybe the Packers can get a lot out of him.

 63. WR – Dorial Green-Beckham

The Seahawks can take the risk and grab Green-Beckham here. They need a #1 receiver on the team and he and be that guy going forward. The Seahawks could also use an offensive lineman with this pick too.

 64. G – Tre Jackson, Florida State

The Pats desperately need a guard. They have brought Jackson in for a few visits and he offers good value with this pick. A big-play threat receiver is also a direction this team could go.
