Doug’s Mock: Round 2
33. St. Louis Rams
LaVonte David, LB, Nebraska (Scouting Report)
David is one of the more underrated players in this class. He has terrific instincts, great coverage skills and he’s an adept tackler.
34. Indianapolis Colts
Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford (Scouting Report)
Luck gets his safety blanket here in Fleener. The Colts need more weapons on offense, and this TE should be explosive.
35. Minnesota Vikings
Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech (Scouting Report)
It won’t surprise me to see this ultra athletic WR fall to the second round. He’s a work in progress and teams want to win now.
36. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Lamar Miller, RB, Miami (Scouting Report)
A great complement to the bruising LaGarrette Blount, Miller is one of the most explosive backs in this draft.
37. Cleveland Browns
Brandon Weeden, QB, Oklahoma State (Scouting Report)
Obvious pick here. I love Weeden’s maturity, big arm and accuracy. He may need some work reading defenses and coming from the OSU offense, but I think he’ll step in and start over McCoy right away.
38. Jacksonville Jaguars
Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor (Scouting Report)
If Blaine Gabbert hopes to succeed, he’s going to need some weapons.
39. St. Louis Rams (via Washington)
Kelechi Osemele, OG/OT, Iowa State (Scouting Report)
The Rams need some help protecting Bradford. Osemele could be a darkhorse future LT if he improves his technique.
40. Carolina Panthers
Brandon Boykin, CB, Georgia (Scouting Report)
Boykin might best suited for the slot early, but the Panthers love their versatile, explosive play makers.
41. Buffalo Bills
Reuben Randle, WR, LSU (Scouting Report)
If Fitzpatrick hopes to succeed in the NFL, he’s going to need more targets than Stevie Johnson.
42. Miami Dolphins
Vinny Curry, OLB/DE, Marshall (Scouting Report)
The Conference USA product can rush this his hand down or standing up, he won’t wow you with speed, but he’s powerful and showcases some nice moves.
43. Seattle Seahawks
Amini Silatolu, OG, Midwestern State (Scouting Report)
The Seahawks young, rebuilt offensive line continues with this Zeitler pick.
44. Kansas City Chiefs
Alameda Ta’amu, DT, Washington (Scouting Report)
He has a potential future as a nose tackle, if he can’t get his technique down and his strength up, he can still be used as a penetrating lineman.
45 Dallas Cowboys
Brandon Thompson, DT, Clemson (Scouting Report)
The Cowboys need to beef up their defensive line and this off-nose could fit well in Dallas.
46. Philadelphia Eagles
Bobby Wagner, LB, Utah State (Scouting Report)
Even after trading for DeMeco Ryans, linebacker is still a need in Philly.
47. New York Jets
Harrison Smith, S, Notre Dame (Scouting Report)
Laron Landry is a major injury risk and the Jets have needed safety help for years.
48. New England Patriots (via Oak)
Kevin Zeitler, OG, Wisconsin (Scouting Report)
Matt Light’s retirement weakened the Patriots offensive line, and Brian Waters is expected to leave next season. With Sebastian Vollmer’s back injury history, it may be best to look at Marcus Cannon as a future tackle rather than guard.
