Mikes Mock Draft: 49-64

49) San Diego Chargers
Kevin Zeitler, OG, Wisconsin (Scouting Report)
With the retirement of Kris Dielman the Chargers need to find a starting OG. Zeitler like Konz is a typical Wisconsin lineman. Mean, powerful and technically sound.

50) Chicago Bears
Kelechi Osemele, OG, Iowa State (Scouting Report)
After passing on Riley Reiff and Cordy Glenn in the first round the Bears take the massive Osemele who profiles to OG in the NFL. Bobby Massie is also an option but, OG is a bigger area of need for the Bears.

51) Philadelphia Eagles (via Ari)
Bobby Wagner, LB, Utah State (Scouting Report)
The Eagles were able to pick up DeMeco Ryans from the Texans in a trade which was a huge pickup, but more help is needed at OLB. Wagner is a perfect fit for what the Eagles look for in a LB, fast, athletic and a little undersized. Adding Wagner to Ryans would give the Eagles linebacking corps a completely different look.

52) Tennessee Titans
Jayron Hosley, CB, Virginia Tech (Scouting Report)
The Titans lost Cortland Finnegan in free agency which leaves a big hole. Despite having Jason McCourty and Alterraun Verner the Titans need another CB. Hosley is a terrific zone corner back. He is ball-hawk who makes tremendous plays on the ball. He would give the Titans three real solid corners.

53)Cincinnati Bengals
Lamar Miller, RB, Miami (FL) (Scouting Report)
The Bengals signed BenJarvus Green-Ellis to a three year deal in free agency and have Bernard Scott in the mix. Neither of those guys can come close to the ceiling that Miller has. Miller would start off in a time share with BJGE and Scott, but it wouldn’t take him long to gain starter status.

54) Detroit Lions
Andre Branch, DE/OLB, Clemson (Scouting Notes)
The Lions were able to franchise DE Cliff Avril, but there is a distinct possibility they will be unable to lock him up long term. You can never have enough pass rushers, so adding Branch not only provides insurance and depth in case Avril leaves, but it also gives Jim Schwartz another pass rushers to play with.


55) Atlanta Falcons
Bobby Massie, OT, Ole Miss
The Falcons struggled to protect Matt Ryan’s blind side all last season. Massie is the best OT on the board and should be considered a very good value pick here.

56) Pittsburgh Steelers
David Wilson, RB, Virginia Tech (Scouting Report)
The Steelers would love to upgrade their offensive line but with a run of offensive lineman the Steelers take the best running back on the board. Mendenhall won’t be ready for the start of the season and hasn’t been as productive as the Steelers would have liked. Wilson is an explosive back who runs extremely hard.

57) Denver Broncos
Jerel Worthy, DT, Michigan State (Scouting Report)
The Broncos passed on a defensive tackle at #25 for Casey Hayward and the gamble pays off as they get a first round caliber defensive tackle at the end of the second round.

58) Houston Texans
Brian Quick, WR, Appalachain State (Scouting Report)
The Texans added the best tight end in the draft in the first round and now get another big WR to pair with Andre Johnson. Adding Fleener and Quick to the Texans offense is a scary thought for the rest of the NFL.

XX) New Orleans Saints

59) Green Bay Packers
Bruce Irvin, OLB, West Virginia (Scouting Report)
With most of the other pass rushers off the board the Packers take a chance on the most athletic one. At this point in the draft the risk is well worth the reward for what ever team picks Irvin.

60) Baltimore Ravens
Jeff Allen, OT/OG, Illinois
The Ravens suffered a big blow when the lost Ben Grubbs to the Saints in free agency. Jeff Allen is a really underrated OL who can play OG an OT. Combined with McClellin the Ravens get two smart, hardworking football players.

61) San Francisco 49ers
Alameda Ta’amu, DT, Washington (Scouting Report
The 49ers would love to get a big veritcal WR to go with Randy Moss, but Quick goes off the board right in front of them. The 49ers can afford to go with the best player available and Ta’amu will be able to get in the rotation on the DL and provide depth to a very good unit.

62) New England Patriots
Josh Robinson, CB, Central Florida (Scouting Report)
After selecting Tru Johnson with their first second round pick, the Patriot decide to get another CB with the ultra athletic Josh Robinson. Robinson is the most athletic corner in the draft. He can flat out blaze (and I’m not talking like Janoris Jenkins). He has a fluid base, can turn and run with anyone and doesn’t shy away from playing in run support. The Patriots should have the book on Robinson with their coaching connections to the UCF program. Coming out of round two with Johnson and Robinson adds man to man coverage skills, athleticism and depth to a secondary that sorely lacked it last year.

63) New York Giants
Mychal Kendricks, ILB, California (Scouting Report)
Kendricks is a freak athlete as the middle linebacker position. He is a former defensive end who moved to MLB later in his college career. The Giants struggled to replace Jon Goff who was lost for the season with injury and is now a free agent. Kendricks has the ability to be the second best linebacker in this draft class outside of Luke Kuechly.

    With the other additional 3rd received in a trade Pats take
    Antonio Allen S South Carolina.

  2. Dano S says:

    Pats will trade a number 1 pick for someone tring to get QB at the end of round and will get additional 2nd round and third round picks.
    1 Janoris Jenkins CB N.Alabama 2 Chris Polk RB Washington
    2 Devon Still DL Penn State 2 Mitchell Schwartz G Cal. 3 Audie Cole LB
    NCS 4 Cam Johnson DE Virginia. Take a chance on Jenkins doesn’t sound like he was born with a silver spoon and he has the great talent.

  3. rdf63 says:

    Chandler Jones is not a first value or caliber player. He may be consideration at 48 but no higher. I really like the Brockers and Wagners picks but we need either a impact player at 32 or trade it. Granted jones had inuries but his numbers are mediocre with 38 tackles, 4.5 sacks, 7.5 tackles for loss, one interception, two forced fumbles, two broken-up passes and three quarterback hurries. In addition, the highest ranking he received is First team All Big East which is not enough to pick at 31.

  4. BILL says:

    pats take Wagner @ 48 with Curry, Branch , and Kendricks still on the board? No way.

    If you think Trumaine Johnson is a perfect fit as FS, why wouldn’t Pats take him @ 48?

    27 and 31 with Brockers & Jones could be real game changers. I don’t know if they will be great, but they could, and BB should know.

  5. bob says:

    Love picks in first and second round; really fills weaknesses.

  6. floridated says:

    Like your Patriots picks but after all the trades that come with their draft their final product will look nothing like this. Novel idea bill trade up of one of the big horses on d line or how about a true corner in the top 5 you have the picks use them for a change. Decent on FA market but nothing earth shattering. Games you lost were now sit Bill were because your defense sucked had no pressure on Manning at all. Present secondary could not contain grandpa’s rest home checker team…

  7. rdf63 says:

    I like the picks because what the Pats need in the 1st two rounds is a safety, cb, dl and DE/olb. Quick is a bit of a reach but would be solid with a free agents signing. The only part missed is a center and Konz is the only real top notch center available in the draft and the Pats may get a OL in 4th round, sign Connolly and wait for next year to get a center.

  8. joeisme says:

    I think the Packers will go pass rush in rounds 1 & 2. I haven’t seen Reyes in the 1st round in any mock. He would help the Pack, but is certainly not the edge rusher they desperately need. Curry or McClellin in round 2. Round 3 is Brewster (C) if he is available there or a CB.

  9. Chargerfan says:

    Charger fan here.. Just wanted to say that I’ve been following the draft now for a few years. I put hours into reading mock drafts, prospect scouting reports, etc. It’s a hobby of mine. I have come to find that this particular site always has very respectable picks with each team’s needs well thought out. No mind-numbing bone-head picks that tell you that the author has no idea what he’s doing. I hate the Patriots, but good job on the mocks Pats fans

    • Steve says:

      Used to think the same thing. Until now that is. So Browns trade 4, 22, 37, and 100 to move up TWO SPOTS!!!! COME ON MAN!!!!! That’s just asinine. Heckert would quit if Holmgren forced him into that rubbish. Get Real. I’m done with this site as you have lost all credibility.

      • td says:

        don’t worry, it’s just fantasy junkies.

        Most Pat’s fans have been trained by BB for the past 12 years of realistic thinking on the draft.

  10. bob the ump says:

    Don’t like your Giants picks. Why take a problem in burflict. Hightower makes better sense. Can call signals and makes big plays in big games.
    IS A MLB!. Which is what the Giants need. Our needs are RT and LT. By draft day we’ll know about Beatty’s recovery but Diehl and Mackenzie have to go!

  11. Diehard82 says:

    Decent looking mock, and I believe some team will “panic” and overdraft Tannehill like with Locker and Ponder last year, but it won’t be Seattle. I know mocking trades is tough, but I can virtually guarantee Seattle will be doing everything humanly possible to trade down from 11/12 to get more picks. If Robinson is still on the board, I could defintely see Cincy trading up from 23 (their 2nd first round pick) to nab him, and then hope DeCastro or Wright are there at 17. Seattle would probably do that for Cincy’s 2nd and 3rd rounders (a discount).

  12. Steve says:

    Guess the Giants OL didn’t let them down in the Superbowl.

  13. TD says:

    You know BB is not going to keep both 1st rounders, especially since they are so close. He might even trade both for some more 2nd round action.

  14. Chris kevorkian says:

    Really want center out og wisc. and MLB Hightower and ta’amu and ciner in 2nd. I would love those four in first two rds…..interior lines both strengthened …..pass rush would improve. Big wr to help stretch defenses and help welker and tes. Great lb to play w mayo, niño, and spikes.

  15. yoav says:

    Love all 4 of your picks first 2 round , poised for 3-4 excellent seasons with those 4 with what we have in place . Please dont trade picks bill ! please for once draft for need bill !

  16. jim says:

    i like the mock but there is no way the titans take a center like brewster after the season he had…he is 3rd round center tops especially with other offensive lineman such as jones from georgia is on the board still

  17. Hank Poteat says:

    I like the mock. One consideration; Brandon Lloyd will end up in NE with McDaniels arriving. Thus, the outside receiver isn’t as big of a need. I’d predict LB or OC here (I’m assuming Koppen is gone, Connolly starts and we need to build online depth)

  18. Eric says:

    I like your selections. I’d be ecstatic if the Pats ended up with all 4 these draft picks – I’d be thrilled with 3 of the 4 – I’d be happy with 2 of the 4 – I’d please with 1 of the 4 – and I expect (unfortunately – once again) none of them will get drafted by the Pats.

  19. Scott says:

    If Sam Montgomery declares and is available with the Pats’ second pick, I’d have a hard time passing on him. With Jenkins at CB (a pick that I really like), that means one of McCourty, Dowling, or Arrington would be getting very limited CB snaps, but I’d be fine with any one of those 3 at FS next to Chung as opposed to Barron. If Belichick truly does want to play mostly man, then Dowling, Jenkins, Arrington, and Edelman as the CBs with McCourty and Chung as the starting safeties seems great to me. Or maybe McCourty gets his head on straight and it’s Arrington at FS. I don’t really care.

    Other than that, I’m a big fan. Montgomery over Barron is the only thing I’d change.

  20. Sean says:

    Kuechly and Brandon Thomas are good picks for the eagles but I don’t like taking a MLB to play olb.

  21. Brent says:

    Great job.

    This would be a very good draft for the Pats…and the Jets.

    I don’t think Gordy Glenn OG Georgia goes quite as high, and I think Whitney Mercilus, assuming his speed at the Combine is 4.6 goes quite as low. More to the bottom of the first, top of the second.

  22. Tyjax says:

    Loved each pick, I think if the Pats ended up with this crew in the first 2 rounds we’d be set for a Superbowl run!
