PewterReport.com issues our fourth mock draft of the year. Who is projected to go to Tampa Bay in the second round? Who will the Falcons and Saints take in round two? Find out here.
The 2011 NFL Draft season is in high gear after the conclusion of the East-West Shrine Game, the Senior Bowl, the NFL Scouting Combine, and player pro-days. Pewter Report issues our fourth mock draft of the year. Yesterday we forecasted the first round. Here is a projection of the second round.

33. New England Patriots- UCLA OLB Akeem Ayers
He’s a perfect for them and their defense. Ayers would be a force in New England.  

34. Buffalo Bills- Clemson DT Jarvis Jenkins
The Bills coached him in the Senior Bowl and he had massive week for them. He would fit well in their defense.

35. Cincinnati Bengals- Pittsburgh WR Jonathan Baldwin
The Bengals are likely to get rid of both Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Ownes this offseason.

36. Denver Broncos- Illinois LB Martez Wilson
The Broncos have struggled to stop the run for years. Wilson allows them to move D.J. Williams back to his natural Will linebacker spot.

37. Cleveland Browns- Oregon State DT Stephen Paea
They need defensive linemen for Dick Jauron’s 4-3 defense. Paea could’ve been a first-rounder if he stayed healthy.

38. Arizona Cardinals- Miami CB Brandon Harris
The Cardinals could use some help in their secondary. 

39. Tennessee Titans- Arkansas QB Ryan Mallett
The Titans need a quarterback badly. Mallett has a big-time arm.

40. Dallas Cowboys- UCLA S Rahim Moore
The Cowboys are looking for safety help and Moore is good value here. 

41. Washington Redskins- Florida State QB Christian Ponder
The Redskins need a long-term quarterback for Mike Shanahan’s offense.

42. Houston Texans- Virginia CB Ras-I Dowling
The Texans get a first-round caliber corner in round two. He’ll pair well with Kareem Jackson. 

43. Minnesota Vikings- Texas CB Curtis Brown
The Vikings need cornerback help.

44. Detroit Lions- North Carolina LB Bruce Carter
The Lions are very interested in Carter and are spending a lot of time with him.

45. San Francisco 49ers- Arizona State OLB Brooks Reed

New d-coordinator Vic Fanigo wants a blitz happy 3-4 defense. Reed is a good fit for that. 

46. Denver Broncos- Oklahoma S Quinton Carter
The Broncos need some help in the backend of their secondary and have shown interest in Carter.

47. St. Louis Rams- Notre Dame TE Kyle Rudolph
This is a great spot to get the top tight end in the draft. Rudolph will work well with Sam Bradford.

48. Oakland Raiders-Florida State G Rodney Hudson
The Raiders could use offensive line help at guard and right tackle. Hudson is the kind of top-shelf athlete the Raiders like to draft.

49. Jacksonville Jaguars- Utah CB Brandon Burton
The Jags have a big hole at corner. Rashean Mathis is declining.

50. San Diego Chargers- Miami WR Leonard Hankerson
The Chargers could use a long-term receiver with a lot of question marks at the position.

51. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Wisconsin TE Lance Kendricks
Read the analysis for why the Bucs would take Kendricks in the Pewter Report Buccaneers Seven-Round Mock Draft.

52. New York Giants- Washington LB Mason Foster
Foster is versatile and will help bolster New York’s linebacking corps. Foster is rising up draft boards

53. Indianapolis Colts- Boise State WR Titus Young
The Colts could add some extra weapons for Peyton Manning.

54. Philadelphia Eagles- North Carolina DT Marvin Austin
The Eagles have dealt with character concerns in the past.

55. Kansas City Chiefs- Indiana WR Tandon Doss
The Chiefs would like to add another threat across from Dwayne Bowe.

56. New Orleans Saints- Villanova G/T Benjamin Ijalana
There are question marks along the Saints offensive line. Ijalana is versatile. 

57. Seattle Seahawks- TCU G Marcus Cannon
Cannon is good value, and will upgrade the Seahawks offensive line.

58. Baltimore Ravens- Troy WR Jerrel Jernigan
Baltimore could use another receiver. Houshmanzedah and Mason are aging. Jernigan could also return kicks.

59. Atlanta Falcons- Miami DE Allen Bailey
Atlanta could use another defensive end. Bailey is good value.

60. New England Patriots- Illinois RB Mikel LeShoure
The Patriots will probably use this pick to select the best player available. LeShoure would add another pair of legs to an already good running back stable.

61. San Diego Chargers- Pittsburgh DE/OLB Jabaal Sheard
Sheard would help the Chargers pass rush. Larry English has been disappointing thus far.

62. Chicago Bears- Penn State C/G Stephen Wisniewski
The Bears need help all over the offensive line.

63. Pittsburgh Steelers- Iowa DT/DE Christian Ballard
Ballard would fit well as a five-technique in the Steelers scheme. 

64. Green Bay Packers- Alabama G/T James Carpenter
Carpenter is versatile and can play at multiple offensive line positions for the Packers.

    If the 2nd round were to go as follows, I have to pass on the TE. Yes, it would be nice to have someone to groom to replace (and helpout) K2, but with players like DT M. Austin, LB M. Foster, and DE J. Sheard sill on the board you have to improve the front 7 and take one of those 3 players (provided the scouts, and coaches believe they would fit our Tampa 2.1). After watching Austin's pro-day and listening to Mike Mayock, he'd be a nice number 3 in the rotation for the DT's. The TE is a need position, but unless he's a Gates or someone that will be getting 60+ catches and double digit TD's, it can wait. After taken J Houston in the 1st round, this team still needs defensive help. Unless FA starts up before the draft (and that doesn't look like its going to) they have to attact the def and help out our offense by getting more turnovers, more 3 and out's, and better field position! Lets hope our "Rock Star" GM can turn these draft picks into more GOLD PLAYERS!!! Go Buc's....

    Does anybody else think that we should take Marvin Austin in the second if he falls to us?

    why not try and get Weslye Saunders in the 6th or 7th. He is an athletic freak who would develop well. He has great hands and is a good blocker. He was considered a first round pick coming into the 10-11 season but then got kicked of South Carolinas team for violating NCAA laws on Agents, the same thing Marvin Austin and Robert Quinn did and they're still first rounders. Saunders could be the biggest steal in this draft. He is going 6th or 7th but more likely undrafted free agent and he could more than likely start next year

    Guys, it's just speculation. Mock drafts are fun to read and create ourselves but the chances of these players being selected in the order offered here is about as likely as BF47 admitting he was wrong about Dominik/Morris. The way some of you react to poor Charlie's little exercise, I'm surprised you didn't call your mom to grab her pistol and head over to the Pewter Report compound. I'm still a "best player at a position of need" guy. While I agree that the team needs to start planning to improve the TE position, I would prefer a later round developmental type as opposed to a second round choice. Like most of you I think the focus should stay on the defensive side if warranted by the available players. Please don't force drafting by position to satisfy the people who cite need as the first priority. We have more than one need; especially with the legal issues facing our star CB.

    Frankly I'd rather have Titus Young or Mason Foster... or a bunch of other guys. Nothing against Kendricks cause I think he's going to be legit, but I think we have some other legitimate needs before we fill the backup TE spot.
  • avatar

    not happening....no way they don't make sure to get another de....te in the 3rd rd and that lb from marshall in the 4th rd.

    Listen, to spend a second round pick on a TE is just a big waste of time. He is not an immediate need for us to draft him for depth in the second round. Our defense will be our achilis heel until we fix it. NO WAY do we take a Back up TE in the second ROUND, that won't happen I guarantee it, NO WAY!!! To argue over it is pointless it won't happen. Dominick would have to lose his mind for that to happen and you don't have to be a brain surgeon to know where we have our weaknesses especially after we will lose Talib possibly next yr. Again, NO way!!

    At first glance, I didn't like the Kendricks pick. After thinking about it, it's not a bad pick at all. He's one of the top two TEs in this draft and he provides much needed insurance at an important position. Freeman is still developing and a TE is a young QBs best friend. Winslow is one of the best pass catching TEs in the league, but his knees could become an issue. We don't have a solid back up to step in to take his place. The other benefit other than insurance for Winslow is two TE sets. Having Winslow and Kendricks on the field at the same time would be interesting. I'm not completely sold on the pick, but I wouldn't be dissapointed if it happened.

    While I do like Kendricks I'd be hard pressed to pass on Sheard and Ijalana at 51.

    You're nuts if you think they'll draft a TE in the second round. They'll probably target an OL or OLB at this spot. They may even trade up to draft one of those defensive positions.

    I think we have other needs then TE right now. Besides you can look at some of the FA's out there for TE to work with Winslow. Best two that stand out - Zack Miller - OAK. If we want someone who can move the chains he would be the guy. Also Kevin Boss - NYG. He's not as fast as some other TE's, but he can make the blocks and is good as a Red Zone receiver. 16 TD's in the past 3 years. Besides we still have Gilmore, who can block and seemed to come into his own as receiver(given limited chances), and I think we can see Purvis grow as a TE in this system. Spend the 2nd round on a best Defensive player available.

    Good mock, and good pick for the Bucs. Kendricks is a baller. Another pass receiving tight end and Free should be stocked at every position with weapons to grow with.
  • avatar

    A TE in the second round??? Seriously??? Winslow may be fragile, but he's a potential Pro Bowler. Don't see any on the defense. Feels like this is just baiting us to blog... will wait for the final draft issue with player assessments for each position and then the final Pewter Report mock draft. Should be a defense heavy draft.

    Sorry, Pewter Report, you lost me on this one. Kendricks over Foster? And right after you just posted an article on how the Bucs need to revamp their LB Corps? Can't say I agree.
  • avatar

    It must be a never ending source of frustration for SR and CC when people think these picks are who the writer would take. In CC's offseason plan he had the Bucs revamping the DEs and LBs. So did SR. Then CC wrote that LB story saying they need to do it. In their mocks they forecast who they believe the Bucs are going to take, not who they want them to take.
  • avatar

    It's all about #5...and don't forget it. That, and Dominik will be quick to tell you not to pigeon hole them into certain defensive picks in the early rounds, either. Kendricks in the second round would NOT surprise me in the least. I would totally support that pick, too.
  • avatar

    I also don't like this pick. Yes we need a tight end in case Winslow goes down, but guys like Virgil Green, Rob Housler, Julius Thomas and Cameron Jordan will likely be available in rounds 4 through 6. The Bucs have more pressing needs. Given the best and worst case scenarios with Talib (he gets off on the criminal charges but gets suspended by the NFL under the personal conduct policy or he gets convicted and serves jail time), I think we need to target a corner in round 2. Before Talib decided to discharge his weapon, I would have taken a second DE (assuming the Bucs take a DE in the first round) or the best available LB or OL in round 2. With Black, Ruud, Trueblood, and Joseph being UFA's and no guarantee of resigning them after the CBA is resolved, there are gaping holes at LB and RG. Talib's issue leaves a potentially huge problem in the secondary, unless the coaches feel Biggers or Lewis are ready to step up and start. Ras-I Dowling is a first round talent with injury issues (but great character) who will likely be taken in the second round, though most mocks have him going before the Bucs pick. Advice to Mark Dominick: trade up in the second to get Dowling.

    I got to disagree with Skull and Bones. First of all, Kendricks is damn good. He would be upgrade over Winslow. Winslow is a liability in the run game. Kendricks is an instant upgrade there. That's just the short-term. Secondly think long term. Winslow is not going to be a guy that plays into his 30s. His knees are damaged goods. He's got another year or two with the way he's been used. Taking Kendricks will extend Winslow's career beyond that. Even though Winslow will be the 'starting' tight end. Kendricks will log more snaps and upgrade the Bucs rushing attack. The Bucs don't need a starting guard. They will keep Joseph, and they love Larsen. You make a point about a linebacker. Foster would be good, but there are quality linebackers and defensive ends later in the draft. There are only four quality tight ends in the draft: Rudolph, Kendricks, Stocker, and Housler. All four will be gone by the time the Bucs pick in round three, so this is the only pick they can really use to get a tight end.

    Since the Bucs have not been able to sign any of their O-linemen back, they will take an OT/OG with the 51st pick - Derrick Sherrod, Marcus Cannon, or Orlando Franklin.

    that would be an absolutely horrible pick considering the talent still avail. Wouldn't you rather have a starter at OG or LB or Sheard than a #2 TE?
