JKP's Two Round Mock Draft

Hope ya'll are enjoying the snow! Here is a two round mock for your enjoyment while you keep warm inside.

  1. HOU - Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina

    The Texans need some pass rush outside of JJ Swat. The owner has also praised Clowney publicly.

  2. STL (via WAS) - Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M

    When Bradford returns, he'll need someone to watch his backside. At this point in his career, Jake Long might be better served playing on the right side anyway.

  3. JAC - Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M

    Manziel will draw some comparisons to Russell Wilson in terms of his height, playmaking ability, and spontaneous innovation. Gus Bradley, the former Seahawk DC might see the same in Manziel.

  4. CLE - Blake Bortles, QB, UCF

    Besides the quarterback situation, the Browns have a surprisingly good roster. They desperately need a QB, and Blake Bortles has drawn some comparisons to Ben Roethlisberger.

  5. OAK - Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville

    Bridgewater does not have the prototypical frame or throwing motion of Andrew Luck, but he does have character, leadership, and football smarts.

  6. ATL - Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn

    Regardless of whether Robinson plays on the right or left side, he will add beef and power to an offensive line sorely in need.

  7. TB - Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson

    The Bucs could go in a couple of directions here, but Sammy Watkins is a game-breaker and is just too good to pass up.

  8. MIN - Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA

    With Mike Zimmer, the Vikings may elect to move to a 3-4 Defense. Barr would be ideal for the 3-4.

  9. BUF - Eric Ebron, TE, UNC

    This just makes too much sense. When EJ Manuel takes center next year, he could use some passing targets, and Ebron is ultra-athletic.

  10. DET - Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M

    The Lions have been looking for a counterpart to Calvin Johnson for some time. This could get scary, especially if the opposing team has smaller corners.

  11. TEN - CJ Mosely, LB, Alabama

    Zach Brown is a nice LB, but Tennessee really needs another stud LB, and a defensive leader.

  12. NYG - David Yankey, OG, Stanford

    The Giants need to get back to running the ball effectively to restore balance to the offense. Yankey could be transformative for the Giants.

  13. STL - Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville

    It's no secret that the Rams need a safety. Pryor is a hard hitting guy that can fly.

  14. CHI - Khalil Mack, DE, Buffalo

    Peppers is getting old and Chicago still has not found a good complement.

  15. PIT - Zack Martin, OT, Notre Dame

    This pick was originally Taylor Lewan. However, I think Martin's play at the Senior Bowl springs him in front of Lewan, just like it did for Fisher over Joeckel.

  16. BAL - Travis Swanson, C, Arkansas

    The Ravens running game, and offense, has suffered since Matt Birk retired. Getting the best center in the draft would help immensely.

  17. DAL - Timmy Jernigan, DT, FSU

    While Jason Hatcher is a superb pass-rushing DT, Kevin Hayden is a turnstile. The Cowboys need a burly run stuffing presence like Jernigan.

  18. NYJ - Marqise Lee, WR, USC

    Through the rough patches, Geno Smith has really shined at times. Getting a dynamic passing threat like Lee might do wonders for a QB who was accustomed to throwing to threats like Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey.

  19. MIA - Cyrus Kouandjio, OT, Alabama

    It's no secret that Tannehill has been on the ground too much.

  20. ARI - Antonio Richardson, OT, Tennessee

    Bradley Sowell has performed admirably for a fill in at LT. Nevertheless, Carson Palmer could use another OT.

  21. GB - Rashede Hageman, DE/DT, Minnesota

    The Packers run defense was putrid this past year. Hageman will help clog the lanes.

  22. PHI - Jeremiah Attaochu, OLB, GT

    In his first year, Kelly did an incredible coaching job, getting the most out of his players. However, he'll have to improve his defense. Attaochu, who is very underrated would be a dynamic defender to build around.

  23. KC - Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech

    Alex Smith with Andy Reid were a perfect pairing. Smith however needs a threat beyond Dwayne Bowe in order to open up the passing game.

  24. CIN - Derek Carr, QB, Fresno St.

    We have all known that Andy Dalton is only going to take the Bengals so far. In order to go further than the first round of the playoffs, the Bengals will need to get a better QB. Carr is not perfect and makes some mistakes, but he has a live arm and is has a high football IQ.

  25. SD - Darqueeze Dennard, CB, Michigan St.

    San Diego has been burned far too much by the big play this year. Their cornerbacks, once a strength, are now the weakness. Getting a stud like Dennard would be a step towards correcting this defensive vulnerability.

  26. CLE (via IND) - Kelvin Benjamin, WR, FSU

    After getting a passer, Cleveland could use another target besides Josh Gordon, who like Atlas, has taken the world on his back. Benjamin, though raw, would provide a big presence on the other side of the field and draw his own attention.

  27. NO - Dee Ford, OLB, Auburn

    Yes, Ford lit up the Senior Bowl. But, he was also spectacular this entire year. Rob Ryan would love to have a lightning quick OLB off the edge.

  28. CAR - Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan

    Lewan is a powerful and nasty OT. His footwork needs a lot of work though, which is why he slides down the board. Carolina could not be happier. Gross is getting older, and Byron Bell is awful.

  29. NE - Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington

    Even if Rob Gronkowski comes back at full strength next year (something we have begun to say in consecutive years now), Tom Brady would love another TE threat.

  30. SF -Jason Verrett, CB, TCU

    The Niners have been starting a bunch of recycled and older CBs over the past few years. Now, they get some young talent.

  31. DEN - Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State

    Champ Bailey is old and a fraction of what he used to be. DRC also might retire early. Needless to say, Denver needs CBs!

  32. SEA - Xavier Su'a Filo, OG, UCLA

    The Seahawks offensive line could use an upgrade. Carroll and his associates always like to get dynamic athletes with a bunch of upside.

  33. HOU - Zach Mettenberger, QB, LSU

    Mettenberger won't be ready to play this year, but Houston has good enough QBs to wait. And when healthy, Mettenberger is perhaps the best QB of this class.

  34. WAS - Allen Robinson, WR, Penn St.

    It is no secret that RGIII really struggled this year. At WR, the Redskins have Pierre Garcon and not much else. This is partially because Washington gave up the world for him, and effectively have not been able to add any talent next to him.

  35. CLE - Cyril Richardson, OG, Baylor

    The Browns need an upgrade at RG.

  36. OAK - Gabe Jackson, OG, Miss. St.

    After getting Bridgewater, Oakland needs to add some parts up front. Gabe Jackson is a powerful guard and would fit on the Raiders O-line.

  37. ATL - Aaron Donald, DT, Pitt

    Babinaeux is getting old and the Falcons could use a difference maker up front.

  38. TB - Aaron Lynch, DE, USF

    Tampa is still looking for a difference maker at DE. Lynch is not fully developed, but is a top 10 talent that would rival Clowney if developed.

  39. JAC - Morgan Moses, OT, Virginia

    Even when Joeckel returns, the Jaguars need another OT.

  40. MIN - Jimmy Garopollo, QB, E. Illinois

    The Vikings are in quite a bind here as they have unfortunately missed out on the top QBs. Garopollo though has shown a lot of talent through the post-season bowl games.

  41. BUF - Davante Adams, WR, Fresno St.

    Even after adding Eric Ebron, EJ Manuel could still use some other passing targets. Adams is much like Mohammed Sanu, he is big, thick, and is a strong pass-catcher.

  42. TEN - Louis Nix, NT, Notre Dame

    The Titans do not have much besides Jurrell Casey in Sammie Lee Hill. Nix has some knee problems, and is a two-down player, but is a top-notch run defender and worth a shot here.

  43. NYG - Ryan Shazier, OLB, Ohio St.

    Jon Beason has been just what the Giants needed: a shot of leadership and talent at the linebacker position. Adding Shazier next to him would do wonders in revamping the defense.

  44. STL - Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt

    Bradford is going to need someone to throw to when he returns from injury.

  45. DET - Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech

    After getting a WR, the Lions luck out again, getting a top notch CB.

  46. PIT - Shayne Skov, ILB, Stanford

    What was once a stable of incredible linebackers is now not so impressive. Skov would fit nicely on the inside of the Steeler 34.

  47. DAL - Haha Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama

    Dallas could use an upgrade over JJ Wilcox.

  48. BAL - Odell Beckham, WR, LSU

    After getting the running game going with Travis Swanson, Joe Flacco has to begging for another target besides Torrey Smith. Beckham is too good of a value to pass over.

  49. NYJ - Ka'Deem Carey, RB, Arizona

    Although Chris Ivory has helped rejuvenate the pound-and-ground offense in NY, Carey could be a great long-term fixture.

  50. MIA - Marcus Roberson, CB, Florida

    After trading away their premier corner to Indy years ago, Miami has some second-string guys playing CB.

  51. CHI - Ego Ferguson, DT/DE, LSU

    Even when Henry Melton returns to form, Chicago needs another big body up front.

  52. ARI - Dee Ford, OLB, Auburn

    The Cards defense is already pretty good, but adding another pass rushing threat would make them even better. Ford is lightning quick off the edge.

  53. GB - Chris Borland, ILB, Wisconsin

    AJ Hawk has been only mediocre, and the Packers could still use another LB. Borland is already Wisconsin's favorite son.

  54. PHI - Dion Bailey, S, USC

    Kelly will need to continue to add dynamic players on defense, and Bailey has played both S and LB.

  55. CIN - Scott Crichton, DE, Oregon St.

    Whether or not Michael Johnson leaves via FA, Cincinnati could afford to restock their pass rushers.

  56. SF - Stephon Tuitt, DE, Notre Dame

    The Niners D-Line is aging and needs fresh talent. Tuitt not only fills a need here, but is a heck of a value.

  57. SD - Deone Bucannon, S, Washington

    Marcus Gilchrist is not an ideal SS. Bucannon would really add some umph(!) to the secondary.

  58. NO - Jack Mewhort, OT, Ohio State

    Charles Brown was a disaster as an LT and Terron Armstead might be better suited to the right side.

  59. IND - Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio St.

    Indy could use an upgrade almost anywhere on their defense. Roby is a very fast corner.

  60. CAR - Jarvis Landry, WR, LSU

    Landry doesn't have the athleticism of Beckham, or the size of some of the other WR prospects, but he is very underrated and is a great all-around WR. Cam Newton also needs a target to throw to because he has nothing besides Steve Smith, who is past his prime.

  61. SF - Paul Richardson, WR, Colorado

    Perhaps Richardson could be what AJ Jenkins never was.

  62. NE - Brandon Coleman, WR, Rutgers

    Brady needs some targets, and Belicheck loves his Rutgers guys.

  63. DEN - Ed Reynolds, S, Stanford

    Denver's secondary still needs more talent.

  64. SEA - Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon St.

    Although Cooks is very talented, I am afraid that his size will really keep him from being drafted higher. Seattle, however, likes athletic and dynamic players that have a chip on their shoulder. Cooks and Wilson might also be a perfect match.
