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.
