49. New York Giants

  1. OT Dallas Thomas, Tennessee – Eli and the running game need to boost their offensive line. They do so by adding Thomas, who is a bit raw but can develop nicely. – Matias Wodner

50. Chicago Bears

OLB Khaseem Greene, Rutgers – The Bears lost their OLB Nick Roach as he went off to join the Raiders. Khaseem steps into his shoes along side fellow rookie MLB Manti Te’o. Seems reminiscent of when the Titans were starting rookie LB’s Colin McCarthy and Akeem Ayers a few years ago, though these players will have to deal with Aaron Rodgers. – Justin Stewart

51. Washington Redskins

CB Jamar Taylor, Boise State – After missing Aqib Talib and losing DeAngelo Hall, the Washington Redskins use their second-round pick on someone who can help their pass defense. – Joshua Huffman

52. Minnesota Vikings

DT SYlvester Williams, North Carolina – The Vikings added Greg Jennings in the off season and also have the great AP.  They continue to work on their defense through the draft.  Facing the likes of Calvin Johnson and Aaron Rodgers twice a year each, safety may be in play here as well, but the value picks were gone in this mock. – JoshGunnels

53. Cincinnati Bengals

RB Giovani Bernard, North Carolina – BenJarvus Green-Ellis is a solid running back, but he isn’t a home run threat and isn’t very explosive. Bernard is, and he could end up being the starter sooner than later. – Matias Wodner

54. Miami Dolphins

OLB Sio Moore, Connecticut – Moore’s a solid tackler who also plays well in coverage. With the departure of Karlos Dansby, the need at LB is even greater and the Dolphins need to take someone in the first few rounds to help solidify the group. Moore seems like a fine candidate. – Justin Stewart

55. Green Bay Packers

DT Johnathan Hankins, Ohio State – Green Bay Packers need another defensive lineman, especially if Jerel Worthy isn’t ready to start the 2013-14 season. Johnathan Hankins is a potential first-round choice for them. But if he’s available in Round 2? Suit him up. – Joshua Huffman

56. Seattle Seahawks

DE Alex Okafor, Texas  - This is the first pick for the Seattle Seahawks in the draft.  They have a dynamic offense with the help of rookie sensation Russell Wilson and need to focus on defense with their first pick.  Okafor is underrated right now and gives the Seahawks the most impact of the players out there.  He could start day one and easily work into their weak DE rotation.  Solid run stopper and can get upfield after the QB as well. – Josh Gunnels

57. Houston Texans

WR DeAndre Hopkins, Clemson – The Texans need a number 2 receiver opposite Andre Johnson. Kevin Walter has been serviceable, but never good enough to make the offense as explosive as it could be. Adding Hopkins, who at times was even better than Clemson star receiver Sammy Watkins, can make them even more dangerous in the playoffs. – Matias Wodner

58. Denver Broncos

DT John Jenkins, Georgia – Jenkins has a big body at 6’4, 346 lbs. He’ll be able to eat up linemen while LB Von Miller blasts through to throw down QB’s. – Justin Stewart

59. New England Patriots

WR Stedman Bailey – After losing Wes Welker, Brandon Lloyd and Julian Edelman, the New England Patriots need to surround Tom Brady with more weapons. – Joshua Huffman

60. Atlanta Falcons

TE Tyler Eifert, Notre Dame – The Falcons took care of their pass rush needs by getting Carradine in the first.  The amazing Tony Gonzalez has said he’s going to return for one more year, but it’s time for the Falcons to look for his replacement.  They snatch the first TE off the board with Eifert and have to be very pleased with these two picks at the end of each round. – Josh Gunnels

61. San Francisco 49ers

TE Gavin Escobar, San Diego State – After losing Delanie Walker, the 49ers need to replace him via the draft. Escobar is strong, athletic and can fill Walker’s role if coached up correctly. – Matias Wodner

62. Baltimore Ravens

CB David Amerson, North Carolina – Baltimore had a fire sale this offseason of most of their defense, including almost all of their backfield. One of the players they lost was CB Cary Williams. Amerson has good speed (4.44 40-yard) and sized (6’1, 205 lbs). Grabbing him at the end of the second round is a good deal for the Ravens. – Justin Stewart

 

Notes of Interest:

Skill Positions? – Only WR Tavon Austin and RB Eddie Lacy were taken in the first round.

Falling Stars:  Bjeorn Werner,  Cordarelle Patterson, Sheldon Richardson, Damontre Moore

Quarterbacks:  Only 2 QB’s in the first two rounds? Is the talent really that weak this year?  I would put really long odds on this happening.  Teams covet QB’s and always seem to reach for them every year.

No cornerback has ever been drafted as high as the 2nd overall pick (Joe Haden – 7th overall, Deion Sanders – 5th overall).

Exactly half of the first 10 picks went to offensive line: 3 tackles and 2 guards.  That must be a record.

So what are the moves that stick out to you?  What would you have done differently?

    Absolutely NO way Dion Jordan falls out of the top 10. I think the Titans would be ecstatic to take him. Also, I think Geno falls all the way to 8th, and possibly further. All these recent QB trades show how uncertain teams are about the top QB prospects.

    • http://www.titansized.com/ Justin Stewart

      Yeah. Shortly after we finished this, all the QB moves started happening. Obviously not the strongest class for them. Teams are settling for some pretty average guys.

      • David Fleming

        I think Geno will be only QB drafted in 1st round, which sucks for us. I wanted Jacksonville, Oakland, Cards, Bills, and Jets to all consider first round QBs. Leaves more players for us.

        • http://www.titansized.com/ Justin Stewart

          That would have been nice…

        • josh gunnels

          I would be shocked if only 1 QB goes in the first. Teams are going to convince themselves they have to reach up and get their guy regardless of “value”.

          • David Fleming

            Yeah I can see some teams trading back into the 1st to grab a guy like Barkley or EJ Manuel, but I think Geno will be the only top 20 QB taken, which is so rare.

        • josh gunnels

          Although the recent Kolb/Palmer/Flynn news does change that scenario quite a bit.

    • josh gunnels

      Truth.

    • josh gunnels

      I don’t know. Isn’t Jordan a 3-4 guy? Gray was just saying how they don’t want pass rush speciliasts etc. But that could be smoke screen.

      And why has Werner fallen out of favor with everyone?

      • David Fleming

        I don’t think Jordan can be classified as anything other than a freak, and I mean that in the nicest, most complimentary way. At nearly 6’7″ and 250 lbs, he can rush the passer as well as cover TEs and WRs. I think he’ll add another 20 lbs in the NFL and become an Aldon Smith/JPP type force, with more athleticism. If he falls to 10 and we don’t take em, Bud Adams better watch out for me.

        • josh gunnels

          I agree he’s awesome, just think Gray and Williams would rather have someone more like Werner that can play the run as well. I don’t see Jordan holding up against the run untill he puts on the 20 lbs you’re talking about.

          “I don’t think Jordan can be classified as anything other than a freak, and I mean that in the nicest, most complimentary way.”
