NFL Draft: Day Two Mock Draft

By Chris Steuber

Scout.com NFL Draft Analyst
Posted Apr 23, 2010




After an eventful prime time debut of the NFL Draft on Thursday night, Scout.com's NFL Draft Analyst Chris Steuber projects the second and third rounds that will take place on Friday night. Find out where Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen (pictured left) will end up inside.



Now that the first round is complete, and the second and third rounds take center stage on Friday night, NFL teams and draft analysts can revisit their draft boards and create scenarios for another mock draft.

The new draft format has created an opportunity that’s unique, and has almost made the second round just as intriguing as the first round. The first round is where all of the top prospects are selected, but through the years, players selected in the second and third rounds have had similar success as those drafted in the opening frame.

There are some great players still available, and it all starts with the St. Louis Rams once again…

Round 2


Brian Price

Junior
DT
6-1
303
The Rams decided to take Sam Bradford over Ndamukong Suh with the first pick, but they still need a DT who can get after the QB. Price is the answer in St. Louis.


Jimmy Clausen

Junior
QB
6-3
222
The Vikings traded out of the first round, because they saw the value that was still on the board in round two. The fact that Clausen fell out of the opening frame is unbelievable, and the Vikings are fortunate to draft a young QB with his skills.



Arrelious Benn

Junior
WR
6-1
219
The Buccaneers upgraded their D-Line with the selection of Gerald McCoy in the first round, and in the second round they give Josh Freeman a weapon he can grow with in Benn.



Sergio Kindle

Senior
OLB
6-3
250
The Chiefs selected all-world safety Eric Berry in the first round, and they will continue to add help on defense in the second round with the selection of Kindle.



Taylor Mays

Senior
S
6-3
230
The Eagles traded up in the first round and took Michigan DE Brandon Graham over Texas FS Earl Thomas. By passing on Thomas, the Eagles will look for a safety with this pick and it will be between Mays and Nate Allen. Mays is a higher rated player and is the pick for Philly.



Colt McCoy

Senior
QB
6-1
216
The Browns addressed their secondary woes with the selection of Joe Haden in the opening frame, and it's likely that they will look for offensive help with this pick. They could draft a WR, but McCoy is the young leader they value at QB.


Charles Brown

Senior
OT
6-6
303
The Raiders made a solid selection in the first round with LB Rolando McClain, but they still have to upgrade their O-Line. Brown offers great value at this pick and is the type of athlete Al Davis covets.



Golden Tate

Junior
WR
5-10
199
The Dolphins traded down in the first round and came away with Penn State DT Jared Odrick. Even though they traded for Brandon Marshall this offseason, Tate's ability as a playmaker is too great to pass up.


Rodger Saffold

Senior
OT
6-5
316
The Bills stunned the NFL universe when they drafted C.J. Spiller in the first round over one of the top OTs. But they luck out in the second round, as Saffold is still on the board.



Everson Griffen

Junior
DE
6-3
273
The Bucs had to come out of this draft with D-Line help and a young WR. They accomplished their goal with the selections of McCoy, Benn and now Griffen.


Terrence Cody

Senior
DT
6-4
349
The Ravens traded out of the first round and were another team that saw the value and depth in this year's draft. There's plenty of options on the board for the Ravens with this pick, but Cody can add a lot to their D-Line and make others better.


Carlos Dunlap

Junior
DE
6-6
270
The Patriots are masters of the draft and understand how it works. They made a couple of trades in the first round and finally settled on Rutgers CB Devin McCourty. With this pick, they should upgrade their pass rush, and Dunlap is the perfect fit for the Patriots.


Jon Asamoah

Senior
OG
6-4
305
The Broncos were aggressive in the first round by trading down a couple of times and finally settling on WR Demaryius Thomas. And then, they made the biggest move on Thursday night when they drafted Florida QB Tim Tebow. In the second round, they upgrade the interior of their O-Line with Asamoah.



Daryl Washington

Senior
LB
6-2
230
The Giants drafted intriguing South Florida DE Jason Pierre-Paul in the first round, and continue to focus on their defensive front seven with the addition of Washington.


Damian Williams

Junior
WR
6-1
197
The uncertainty of when Wes Welker will be able to return to the lineup and the age of Randy Moss makes drafting a WR a huge priority for the Patriots. Williams is a solid all-around receiver, who does everything well.



Taylor Price

Senior
WR
6-1
204
Not having a first round pick this year, the Panthers finally get their chance to improve their team. There's no question that the Panthers have to add another playmaker at wide receiver, and Price seems to be a perfect fit.



Nate Allen

Senior
FS
6-1
207
The 49ers ignored their defensive needs in the first round, as they improved their O-Line with the selections of Rutgers OT Anthony Davis and Idaho OG Mike Iupati. And by taking a solid all-around safety like Allen with this pick, he should help out their secondary from day one.



Linval Joseph

Junior
DT
6-5
328
The Chiefs may look at O-Line help or a WR with this pick, but they continue to add to their defense with the massive Joseph.



Jonathan Dwyer

Junior
RB
5-11
229
The Texans were hoping for Ryan Mathews in round one, but the Chargers traded up to steal him and Houston decided to take Alabama CB Kareem Jackson. With RB still a need, the selection of Dwyer makes sense.



Akwasi Owusu-Ansah

Senior
CB
6-0
207
The Steelers made a solid pick in the first round with Florida center Maurkice Pouncey, and will elect to upgrade their secondary in the second round with an intriguing playmaker in Owusu-Ansah.



Aaron Hernandez

Junior
TE
6-3
245
The Patriots are a team that's never shy of drafting tight ends high in the draft. And despite signing veteran Alge Crumpler, they will look for a young, pass catching TE who can stretch the field. Hernandez gives Tom Brady another weapon to utilize.



Lamarr Houston

Senior
DT
6-3
305
The Bengals got the playmaking TE they needed on offense in round one with Jermaine Gresham. And now on defense, they need a pass rushing DT that can get after the QB. Houston is a great fit.



Dexter McCluster

Senior
RB
5-9
172
The Eagles added speed on defense with their first two picks in the draft, and now add a dynamic player on offense with the selection of McCluster.



Chris Cook

Senior
CB
6-2
212
The Packers had to be thrilled that Iowa OT Bryan Bulaga fell to them in the first round and in the second round, Cook is the big CB that fits Green Bay's profile.



Jimmy Graham

Senior
TE
6-6
260
The Ravens have to look towards the future at TE with Todd Heap getting older and being injury prone. Graham is the type of developmental pass catching TE they can take a chance on, not to mention, he's from the "U".



Brandon Ghee

Junior
CB
5-11
196
The Cardinals got a gift in the first round with Tennessee DT Dan Williams falling to them, and with this pick they can draft the best CB available. Ghee has great athleticism and is a solid cover corner.



Bruce Campbell

Junior
OT
6-7
314
The Cowboys may have received the steal of the draft when they moved up in the first round for Dez Bryant. And with this pick, the Cowboys get Campbell, who is an intriguing prospect that has great upside. He's their LT of the future.



Jason Worilds

Junior
DE
6-1
254
The Seahawks may have had the best opening night of any team on Thursday, as they came away with Russell Okung and Earl Thomas. The next priority for the Seahawks is to find a pass rusher, and Worilds has tremendous ability off the edge.


Alex Carrington

Senior
DE
6-5
286
The Jets stole Boise State CB Kyle Wilson in the first round, and they continue to add to their strength in the second frame with the addition of Carrington.



Camaron Thomas

Senior
DT
6-4
330
The Vikings could go in a few directions with this pick, but with Thomas still available he adds depth to the defensive front.



Vladimir Ducasse

Senior
OG
6-5
332
The Colts added their speed rusher in the first round with TCU DE Jerry Hughes. In the second round, adding depth on the O-Line is a priority. Ducasse can play guard or tackle at the next level.



Sean Lee

Senior
LB
6-2
236
The Saints got good value in the first round with the selection of Patrick Robinson, but they still need help in their front seven. Lee has first round talent, but injuries have stalled his progress.

I'd be happy with Owusu-Ansah in the 2nd. I don't know much about the OT from WV but I'd go with Gerhart in the 3rd.

I'd like to see the Steelers get an extra 2nd round pick, since, it appears that some first round talent fell into the second round.

Trade 3.18, 4.18 and 5.20 to the Raiders for their 2.7 pick. (If they have to throw in the 7th that can be traded)

2.7 - Linval Joseph (a true 3-4 DE) or Taylor Mays (safety)
2.20 - Sean Lee (ILB) or Golden Tate (WR)

it's not, our 4th and two 5ths would only get us to the bottom of Round 3.

that 5th we got for Sanstonio sure is valuable, huh? :roll:

IMO, they'll need to move up a little to get Tate.

thing about deep drafts is that if there's a bunch of 1st round type talent in the 2nd and 3rd, wouldn't it follow that there's a bunch of 3rd round type talent slipping to the 4th and 5th? Our FO has said that it feels good about what's going to be available on Saturday, and we have a bunch of picks.

As to 'Stonio, we got a 5 for 12 GAMES of his services. He's going to want $10 mil + on his next deal... no way we pay him based on his behavior anyways, so why not get SOMETHING now while sending a message by trading him? Guess they valued a 5 now over a 3 comp in '11.

i have no problem with trading Sanstonio, i'm just convinced that if we had waited until now we could have gotten more than a 5th for him or could have used him to trade up here in the 2nd round.

i'm going to be reminded tomorrow when we pick in the 5th round and the ESPN guys mention this was the pick we got for Sanstonio, maybe after that i'll try to move on. :lol:

The problems with waiting were that we lose the PR benefit of the swift trade...sending the moron packing...and we might end up with nothing for him if the other teams dont cooperate once the draft heats up. Plus, our draft outlook would be more muddled...bad enough with the questions around Pig Ben.

Only problem with this is that recent experience suggests our talent evaluation in rounds 4-7 blows chunks...
