3/26 costrander3689's Mock Draft (Round 2)
1 - HOU: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
O'Brein wants a high-IQ, high-accuracy QB, and that's what Bridgewater is. He needs to bulk up a bit, and his arm strength could be better, but he has the highest floor of any QB in the draft, and a fairly high ceiling
2 - STL: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn
With Jake Long on the mend and becoming injured more often, getting a future LT would be a good move. He can start at RT like Joekel and Fisher did last year in a preparation to move over eventually
3 - JAX: Jadeveon Clowney, DE , South Carolina
I can't see the Jaguars taking Bortles or Manziel here with Clowney available. He'd be an immediate impact starter on defense, and they can look for a 2nd round QB
4 - CLE: Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida
They should look hard at Watkins here, but they really need a QB. Bortles can sit behind Hoyer for a few weeks until he's ready to roll, and Shanahan can prep him up
5 - OAK: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M
Manziel could also be the pick here, but after losing Veldheer, drafting a new LT here is their best choice
6 - ATL: Khalil Mack, LB , Buffalo
With the top 2 OTs and Clowney off the board, Mack is their best option here, which is just fine. THey're moving to a 3-4, so picking up Mack would give them the outside pass-rushing force they will need
7 - TB: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson
The Bucs should just wait and see what they can get here. Landing Watkins would be a huge steal, especially as it looks like Mike Williams will be cut
8 - MIN: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M
Taking Manziel at 8 is a bit of a risk, but his ceiling is very, very high, making it worth it.
9 - BUF: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
Cordy Glenn is a great OT, but he should be a RT. Drafting Lewan would give them a legitimate LT, and a very solid pair of starters
10 - DET: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State
This pick should be between Gilbert, Evans and Clinton-Dix. I think Gilbert gives them the best value and fills the bigger need
11 - TEN: Anthony Barr, LB, UCLA
The Titans need to find some serious pass rushing help, and should strongly consder Barr here. They should look at what the Broncos did with Von Miller, and mimic that with him
12 - NYG: Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina
The Giants have a bigger need for TE than WR, making Ebron a better pick than Evans. If he can improve his blocking to an "average" level, he'll be a top 5 TE in a year or two
13 - STL: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
They could look at safety here, but passing on Evans might be a much bigger mistake. Austin, Bailey and Givens are solid receivers, but none of them make defenses nervous in the red zone
14 - CHI: Aaron Donald, DL , Pittsburgh
The biggest hole on their defense is pass-rushing DT. Donald would be a good pick to replace Melton
15 - PIT: Darqueze Dennard, CB , Michigan State
The Steelers have a huge need at CB, and Dennard is a great value pick with #1 potential early on
16 - BAL: Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama
With Ihedigbo out, the Ravens need a new FS to pair with Elam. Clinton-Dix's coverage ability would pair nicely with the hard hitter
17 - DAL: Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame
With Henry Melton coming in, they need a big-body DT to pair with him. Nix shold draw plenty of attention away from him and their young DEs
18 - NYJ: Marqise Lee, WR , USC
The Jets need someone to find a #1 WR. Lee isn't quite there, but he does have that potential, and his speed would pair nicely with Decker's size and route running
19 - MIA: Zack Martin, OT, Notre Dame
The Dolphins need several new OL starters. Martin can play RT or either guard spot, giving them versatility moving forward
20 - ARI: C.J. Mosley, OLB, Alabama
Mosley is a steal here. Though his stock has been dropping, he's an excellent player, and a thumper that would pair nicely with Daryl Washington
21 - GB: Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville
The Packers need to find some serious defensive help, especially at safety. Pryor has solid range, but has the biggest impact as a hitter and run stopper
22 - PHI: Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech
The Eagles need to add some CB talent, and getting a starting CB here would be the best option
23 - KC: Odell Beckham, WR , LSU
With a glaring need at WR, and several intriguing prospects in this range, the Chiefs should take a shot on the lanky Beckham
24 - CIN: Kony Ealy, DL , Missouri
Ealy is a huge steal here, and has the potential to replace Michael Johnson from Day 1
25 - SD: Jason Verrett, CB , TCU
San Diego has no starting CBs that and QB would be worried about throwing towards. Verrett's power and speed would change that
26 - CLE: Brandin Cooks, WR , Oregon State
With a new QB, o-line and HB, the Browns should finish building their offense with a speedy outside WR to pair with Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron
27 - NO: Dee Ford, DE , Auburn
The Saints' defense took a huge step forward last year, but still needs a few pieces. Adding Ford here would give them the outside speed rusher they need
28 - CAR: Cyrus Kouandjio, OL , Alabama
Instead of reaching for a WR, the Panthers should get a LT here who actually has value worth this pick
29 - NE: Jace Amaro, TE , Texas Tech
Gronk is seemingly always injured, and Hernandez is gone, leaving Brady with a slurry of unimpressive TEs. Adding Amaro would give him a big, physical target over the middle and out of the backfield like Hernandez used to
30 - SF: Bradley Roby, CB , Ohio State
The 49ers biggest need is at CB, and Roby happens to be one of the top players on the board
31 - DEN: Allen Robinson, WR , Penn State
After losing Decker, and with Welker well on the wrong side of 30, the Broncos should strongly consider a WR here to line up outside with Demarius Thomas
32 - SEA: David Yankey, G , Stanford
Seattle needs a RT and an upgrade at guard. Yankey can fill either of those spots, and give them flexibility to fill the other later on

Above Average -- everyone including you is enamored with bridgewater he did nothing at the combine and even less on his pro day which was as bad as it gets.What will he do in a real game?

Above Average -- I like seeing Yankee in the first. Plus, I think when all the media trashing is done and the dust settles, Bridgewater will rightfully be drafted in the top ten.
