2012 NFL Mock Draft – Round 2 (49-64)

49. San Diego Chargers
Whitney Mercilus, DE/OLB, Illinois (Scouting Report)
I’ll come right out and say it, I’m not a huge fan of Mercilus. That said, he can get after the passer, which is something that you’re going to have to do in the AFC for the foreseeable future.

50. Chicago Bears
A.J. Jenkins, WR, Illinois (Scouting Report)
Jenkins is an incredibly smooth receiver that can play outside or in the slot. He is very good with the ball in his hands.

51. Philadelphia Eagles (via Arizona)
Jerel Worthy, DL, Michigan State (Scouting Report)
Andy Reid is not afraid to eschew a need and grab the best player available. Worthy could be a penetrating force for the Eagles.

52. Tennessee Titans
Brandon Thompson, DT, Clemson(Scouting Report)
Thompson is a big (6-3/310) defender with tons of potential as a 1-gap DL. Has the physicality and quickness to dominate in either a 4-3 or attacking 3-4.

53. Cincinnati Bengals
Chris Polk, RB, Washington (Scouting Report)
Polk is somewhat of a polarizing figure. Some insist that he is a 1st round talent, while others feel that he may last until the third round. I’m right in the middle, figuring that while he isn’t in the same class as Trent Richardson, I’d rather take my chances with Polk than a lot of other backs.

54. Detroit Lions
Brandon Boykin, CB, Georgia (Scouting Report)
Boykin might be small in stature but he has a big heart and speed to burn. He will be an immediate starter in Detroit.

55. Atlanta Falcons
Ladarius Green, TE, La-Lafayette
Green is an excellent receiver that would be able to take over that part of Tony Gonzalez’ game.

56. Pittsburgh Steelers
Bobby Massie, OL, Mississippi
Massie is an underrated lineman that could help add some depth on the Steelers offensive line. Adding a cornerback or safety here could also be an option.

57. Denver Broncos
Zach Brown, OLB, North Carolina (Scouting Report)
Brown is an incredible athlete that should thrive in a system as a weakside linebacker where he can use his speed and natural athletic ability.

58. Houston Texans
Mohamed Sanu, WR, Rutgers (Scouting Report)
Sanu’s game isn’t predicated on speed, as his 4.65 number at the combine showed. However, adding Sanu underneath will help Schaub and company immensely.

XX. New Orleans Saints
Pick forfeited due to league sanctions.

59. Green Bay Packers
Kendall Reyes, DL, UConn (Scouting Report)
Reyes is a bit over-rated in my opinion, but his frame and potential will get him drafted within the first 60-70 picks.

60. Baltimore Ravens
Andre Branch, DE/OLB, Clemson (Scouting Notes)
Branch can get after the passer, but he looks a little soft on tape. I wouldn’t draft him until midway through the 2nd round at earliest.

61. San Francisco 49ers
Dwayne Allen, TE, Clemson (Scouting Report)
Dwayne Allen and Vernon Davis could be an incredible duo for Coach Harbaugh.

62. New England Patriots
Lavonte David, LB, Nebraska (Scouting Notes)
Adding a linebacker that can cover a lot of ground in both the run game and in coverage should be a priority for the Patriots. David is undersized, but should be able to take on the role that Gary Guyton failed at.

63. New York Giants
Mitchell Schwartz, OL, Cal (Scouting Report)
Schwartz is a very versatile lineman that could start as a guard and fill in at both tackle positions when needed. He could even play some center in a pinch.
