2017 NFL Mock Draft Final Edition: Projections For All 7 Rounds - Day 2

This is round two of my 2017 NFL mock draft. The first round is located here.


33. Browns: Quincy Wilson, CB, Florida
If Wilson falls to Round 2, he won't last long. He's a great fit for the Browns, who badly need corner help. This would be strong value and give the Browns likely day one starter. 

34. 49ers: Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State
That's right, Cook falls to round 2. I think the buzz about his off-the-field issues causing him to fall to Round 2 is legit. The 49ers have shown interest in him and although it doesn't fill a massive need, it is great value. But, don't be surprised if Joe Mixon ends up being taken before him. The off-the-field stuff (plus injuries), has NFL teams worried. I also think T.J. Watt would be a quality fit here. 

35. Jaguars: Evan Engram, TE, Ole Miss
I think both Engram and Indiana's Dan Feeney make sense here. We'll give the Jags a move tight end in Engram. He's almost a WR playing tight end and he'd give the Jags a quality Julius Thomas replacement. 

36. TRADE: Seahawks: (via Bears): Kevin King, CB, Washington
The Seahawks trade down and still end up with a player they could take in Round 1. King's stock has risen, thanks to testing off the charts at the Combine. At 6-foot-3, he's a prototypical Seahawks corner and could start early. 

37. Rams: Carl Lawson, EDGE, Auburn
The Rams added Connor Barwin to help fill their 3-4 OLB need, but more help is needed. There's Robert Quinn, Eugene Sims and William Hayes are gone and Ethan Westbrooks had a domestic violence arrest, although he was re-signed. Lawson provides the Rams with a long-term option who I like quite a bit. 

38. Chargers: Malik McDowell, DT, Michigan State
Dan Feeney is also an option, but McDowell fills a need too. Corey Liuget has struggled the last two years and McDowell could be his replacement.  A top 15 talent, attitude and effort issues will push McDowell down to the second round. 

39. Jets: Jabrill Peppers, S, Michigan
The Jets need help at safety and they stop Peppers' slide. The failed drug test will raise red flags, even if Peppers' claim of being overhydrated due to illness was true. He was a borderline first round pick and still could be. This is as far as I see Peppers sliding.

40. Panthers: Budda Baker, S, Washington 
The Panthers need another young safety and Baker can provide that. He's undersized, but a great player. Baker is a free safety and should start right away. He also fits the Panthers BPA plan. 

41. Bengals: Joe Mixon, RB, Oklahoma 
The Bengals have serious interest in Mixon and it makes sense. They've never feared off-the-field issues and Mixon is perhaps the second-best back in this year's class. Mixon would provide an upgrade over Jeremy Hill, who could still serve as a goal line back while under contract. Gio Bernard could still be a change-of-pace back. A LB or DE (whichever the Bengals don't take in Round 1), makes sense too. 

42. Saints: Chidobe Awuzie, CB, Colorado
There's been first round buzz around Awuzie, but a few of the corners will likely fall. Awuzie can do a bit of everything: play outside, inside and even at safety in a pinch. The Saints need corner help and Awuzie can provide that early. If there's an early run on CBs, Awuzie could go in Round 1. 

43. Eagles: Cordrea Tankersley, CB, Clemson
The top three corners for the Eagles right now are Jalen Mills, Ron Brooks and Patrick Robinson, with only Robinson a free agent after next year. Ew. Adding two corners in the first three rounds is a real option for the Eagles. Here's another physical corner to play outside.

44. Bills: Sidney Jones, CB, Washington
The Bills need corners and Jones is a damn good one. If it was for an Achilles injury, he'd be a first round pick. He might be able to play, or at least close to it, in September. 

45. Cardinals: Tre'Davious White, CB, LSU
The Cardinals need a No. 2 corner and White can be that player. He offers added return value, not that the Cardinals really need that. I think there could be a mini-run on corners in this range. White could sneak into round one. 

46. Colts: Adoree' Jackson, CB, USC
The Colts need some corner help, something Jim Irsay has said. Off-the-field issues will push Williams down, but he's one of the better pure pass rusher this year.  

47. Vikings: Dan Feeney, OG, Indiana
The Vikings had terrible offensive line play this year and Feeney can help shore that up. The Vikings added two tackles, but I wouldn't be surprised if they added a guard early too.  

UP NEXT: Likely NFL Draft Busts

48. Ravens: Pat Elflein, C, OSU
Jeremy Zuttah is gone and the Ravens need a replacement center. Elflein is the best one in this year's draft class. A defensive player also makes sense. 

49. Redskins: Alvin Kamara, RB, Tennessee
The Redskins could go defense here, but Kamara is solid value and fills a need. He has some Jamaal Charles in him and the Redskins need another RB. He could go before this if a team loves him. 

50. Bucs: Marcus Williams, S, Utah
The Bucs could go safety in round 1, but they get one here. Williams is a free safety, making him a better partner for J.J. Wilcox. Williams is absurdly young, at just 20 years old. He has plenty of upside. 

51. Broncos: Jake Butt, TE, Michigan
The Broncos don't have a true pass catching threat at TE. Taking Butt, despite his injury, would provide Denver with one. Even if he misses part (or all) of the year, Denver can afford to wait. I think he ends up in round two, although maybe not this high. 

52. Browns (via Titans): Josh Jones, S, N.C. State
Jones, in many ways, is a lesser version of Obi Melifonwu. He would be a Day 1 starter for the Browns, filling a massive need.

53. Lions: Chris Wormley, DT, Michigan
The Lions need another DL to pair with A'Shawn Robinson and ideally that's a disruptive player. That is what Wormley can be. A LB or pass rusher (whichever one the Lions don't get in round 1) is also an option here. 

54. Dolphins: Jordan Willis, DE, Kansas State
The Dolphins could go DE in round one if Lamp is gone. But if they can land Lamp, they'll be happy to snag Willis in round two. A strong pre-draft process really helped Willis and I think this is about the right range.  

55. Giants: D'Onta Foreman, RB, Texas 
Remember the prime Brandon Jacobs years for the Giants? Drafting Foreman can bring that type of bruising, powerful running game back to New York. Foreman might only be a two-down back, but if that's the case, he'll make a perfect pairing with Paul Perkins. If LeGarrette Blount signs before the draft, this pick won't happen. 

56. Raiders: Desmond King, DB, Iowa
With LB taken care of, the Raiders look towards the secondary. King lacks speed and size, but he would thrive in a zone scheme. He could also shift to safety if corner doesn't work out. He's been the best college corner for at least the last two years. 

57. Texans: Davis Webb, QB, Cal
I think the Texans pass on a QB in round one, but Webb makes sense if he's here in round two. I don't buy the Webb in the first round hype at all. Which makes it fitting the Texans get him, since they also ended up with Tom Savage, who had the same crazy hype. 

58. Seahawks: Antonio Garcia, OT, Troy
Seattle really needs another lineman, preferable a tackle. Garcia is the top one left and could go earlier. 

59. Kansas City Chiefs: Teez Tabor, CB, Florida
Before brutal a combine and pro day, Tabor could have been a first round pick. But he didn't test well (now claiming a hamstring injury) and that will hurt his stock. Still, Tabor has the best ball skills in the draft.

60. Cowboys: Fabian Moreau, CB, UCLA
The Cowboys took care of edge rusher, but still need help in the secondary. We'll give them a corner here, one who might have gone earlier had he not torn a pectoral muscle during his pro day. But he should be ready to start the year and the Cowboys did bring him in for a visit. 

61. Packers: Raekwon McMillan, LB, OSU
This is a steal for the Packers. McMillan could go much earlier. The Packers don't value ILBs all that much, but the value is too good here. 

62. Steelers: Tyus Bowser, OLB, Houston
Bowser has risen up boards in the pre-draft process and this might be too low for him. He missed time this year, which helped keep him under the radar.

63. Falcons: Dorian Johnson, OG, Pitt
The Falcons only major need on offense is at guard. Johnson should be able to step in right away. In a bad OL class, he could go earlier than this. 

64. Panthers (via Patriots): Tarell Basham, DE, Ohio
Here's a young edge rusher the Panthers need. Basham will fit well in a 4-3 scheme.  


65. Browns: Curtis Samuel, WR, Ohio State
Here's a dynamic weapon for the Browns offense. Samuel is a Percy Harvin type, who can play some RB but will mostly be a slot WR. It's a great fit and Samuel could go in Round 2. 

66. 49ers: Ahkello Witherspoon, CB, Colorado
The 49ers are moving to a Seahawks style 4-3 scheme. Witherspoon has the size that fits the Seahawks corner mold perfectly.  

67. Seahawks (via Bears*): Derek Rivers, EDGE, Youngstown State
Here's some added depth for Seattle at pass rusher. With several picks early this year, Seattle could trade up or down.

68. Jaguars: Dion Dawkins, OL, Temple
It's not great value, but Dawkins fills a need. He can start off at guard and maybe play tackle when Braden Albert leaves. 

69. Rams: Bucky Hodges, TE, Virginia Tech
The Rams need more weapons for Jared Goff and Hodges could be a great one. I love him and he'd be an upgrade over Lance Kendricks. Tyler Higbee is on the roster, but Hodges has more upside. 

70. Jets: Zay Jones, WR, ECU
Jones is a potential round two pick. With Brandon Marshall gone, the Jets could use another WR. 

71. Chargers: Cooper Kupp, WR, Eastern Washington
Travis Benjamin wasn't great and the Chargers could use another WR. I think a round 3 run on WRs is likely, but Kupp and several others could go in Round 2. He's a Percy Harvin type, who could play some third down back for the Chargers. 

72. Patriots (from Panthers): Tim Williams, EDGE, Alabama
Here's a much-needed edge rusher for the Patriots. Williams struggles against the run and has off-the-field issues, but he's a dynamic edge rusher.    

73. Bengals: Ethan Pocic, OL, LSU
Pocic could play guard or center, both of which the Bengals need. 

74. Ravens (from Eagles): Cam Sutton, CB, Tennessee 
Even with Brandon Carr on the roster, more CB help is needed. Sutton is the top one left. 

UP NEXT: Most Likely NFL Draft Busts

75. Bills: Anthony Walker, LB, Northwestern
Zach Brown is gone, so the Bills will look for another LB to help out. This is near the top of Walker's range. 

76. Saints: Chris Godwin, WR, Penn State
Defense remains an option, but Michael Thomas is the only young player under contract for the long-term at WR. Godwin has good value and if the Saints are done with Brandon Coleman, Godwin can be an outside WR. 

77. Cardinals: Marcus Maye, S, Florida
Antoine Bethea is replacing Tony Jefferson and D.J. Swearinger, but he's not a long-term option. Maye is and could go before this. 

78. Ravens: Ryan Anderson, EDGE, Alabama
This is solid value for Anderson, who should play early. The Ravens need young pass rushing help badly. 

79. Vikings: Montravius Adams, DT, Auburn
Sharrif Floyd's future is up in the air because of a knee issue. Adams, who could go in round two, can replace him.

80. Colts: Dawuane Smoot, EDGE, Illinois
The Colts aren't done upgrading their pass rushers. Smoot could go earlier than this and should be a fit as a 3-4 OLB. 

81. Redskins: JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR, USC
Terrelle Pryor and Brian Quick are on the roster now, but they are only on one-year deals. Smith-Schuster can play a role right away, ideally in a similar way Pierre Garcon did. 

82. Broncos: Carlos Henderson, WR, La Tech
This is great value for Denver, as Henderson could sneak into the late second. He won't be a No. 1 option, but he could become a No. 2. For the time being, he'll be an upgrade as the Broncos' No. 3 option.

83. Titans: Jordan Leggett, TE, Clemson
More weapons for Marcus Mariota is a good thing. Leggett is another quality TE in a loaded class.   

84. Bucs: Kareem Hunt, RB, Toledo
This is near the top of Hunt's range, but he's a good runner. With Doug Martin a major question mark, the Bucs will look for another RB. 

85. Lions: Corn Elder, CB, Miami
There isn't a linebacker worth taking, which is the Lions' top need. But, Elder is a perfect fit as a slot corner for the Lions. He plays bigger than he is. 

86. Vikings (from Dolphins): Gerald Everett, TE, South Alabama
The Vikings like using two tight ends and Everett can be that. With Rhett Ellison gone and the Vikings having two 3rds in an amazing TE class, don't be surprised if they pull the trigger. 

87. Giants: Carlos Watkins, DT, Clemson
Johnanthan Hankins isn't coming back, so here's a replacement. The Giants could look for another DT even earlier than this. 

88. Raiders: Elijah Qualls, DL, Washington
The Raiders cut Dan Williams, so defensive line help is needed. Qualls can be a run-stuffer, although hopefully more productive than Qualls.

89. Texans: Rasul Dogulas, CB, West Virginia
A.J. Bouye went to the Jags. Here's his replacement. 

90. Seahawks: Justin Evans, S, Texas A&M
How long will Kam Chancellor be in Seattle? If he leaves, Evans is a quality replacement. 

91. Chiefs: Chad Hansen, WR, Cal
Will Chris Conley take a step forward? Here's some insurance if not. Hansen could be a quality No. 2 WR in the NFL. This year's WR class is full of them. 

92. Cowboys: Eddie Jackson, S, Alabama
The Cowboys get lucky and they snag the top safety left. Evans could start early for the Cowboys. Coming off a broken leg hurts Jackson, but he could go before this. 

93. Packers: Marlon Mack, RB, South Florida
Ty Montgomery might not be a true feature back, but Mack can help shoulder the load. He's a talented runner and fits what the Packers look for at RB. 

94. Steelers: Amara Darboh, WR, Michigan
The Steelers are looking for a WR early, and this is the right range for Darboh.

95. Falcons: Tanoh Kpassagnon, DL, Villanova
Here's some more defensive help for the Falcons. A great size-speed combo, Kpassagnon could be a key part of the Falcons defensive line long-term, but he reminds me of Margus Hunt. 

96. Patriots: Howard Wilson, CB, Houston
With Malcolm Butler's future in doubt, the Pats need another corner. 

97. Dolphins (Compensatory Pick*): Larry Ogunjobi, DL, Charlotte
With Earl Mitchell gone, the Dolphins need defensive line help. Ogunjobi can serve as a rotational player, although he's still raw. 

98. Panthers*: Taylor Moton, OT, Western Michigan
There's a real chance a poor OT class drives Moton up higher. But if he lasts, he's a fit. The Panthers still need OL help. 

99. Eagles* (via Ravens): DeMarcus Walker, EDGE, Florida State
With Connor Barwin gone, the Eagles need more young depth. Adding a WR or another CB could be an option here too. 

100. Titans* (from Rams): Taywan Taylor, WR, Western Kentucky
The Titans keep adding weapons. Taylor will be a slot option. 

101. Broncos*: Dalvin Tomlinson, DL, Alabama
Tomlinson is a younger, and potentially better, player than Domata Peko. He could help upgrade the Broncos run defense in a few years. 

102. Bears (via Seahawks*): Isaiah Ford, WR, Virginia Tech
A poor Combine helped hurt Ford's stock. But this is solid value and he could help replace Alshon Jeffery. Remember, this is part of the early Bears-Seahawks trade.

103. Saints* (from Pats via Browns): Duke Riley, LB, LSU
The Saints might not even wait this long to adda linebacker. 

104. Chiefs*: Carroll Phillips, EDGE, Illinois
If the Chiefs are looking for extra edge rusher depth, Phillips makes sense. The Chiefs don't have a ton of needs, so they could target the best player or trade down. 

105. Steelers*: Joshua Dobbs, QB, Tennessee
Landry Jones isn't the answer as a starter or backup. Dobbs, who is a literally rocket scientist, can learn behind Big Ben. Maybe he only ends up as a backup, but the Steelers are playing with house money in the compensatory round. 

106. Seahawks*: Julie'n Davenport, OT, Bucknell
Would anyone fault the Seahawks for taking two OL players? Davenport is raw, but has upside. That's how Seattle likes its linemen. 

107. Jets*: Roderick Johnson, OT, Florida State
Much like Moton, a poor OT class could push Johnson up. The Jets need OT help, especially if Brandon Shell doesn't pan out.
