NFL 2014 Consensus Mock Draft
Round 2 - Picks 33-64

CMD #12
April 23, 2014


33 Houston
Blake Bortles
    UCF
    QB
    Reach/Value:     +23
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
232
Alternate Pick #1
Derek Carr
Alternate Pick #2
Jace Amaro
And here's your surprise . . . will Blake Bortles really fall this far? Normally one of the highly-rated signal callers takes a tumble, but speculation has centered around that being either Teddy Bridgewater or (gasp!) Johnny Football. If this gamble pays off, no doubt the Texans and their fans will be ecstatic . . . with Ryan Fitzpatrick signed to start the season, the pressure to play Bortles immediately will be lessened as a 2nd Round selection. As his 2013 highlights indicate, Bortles is blessed with both an NFL arm and athleticism to boot.
34 Washington
Kelvin Benjamin
    Florida State
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     -50
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
235
Alternate Pick #1
David Yankey
Alternate Pick #2
Gabe Jackson
Among WRs, 26 of the top 30 TD producers are over 6'1", accounting for 85% of the touchdowns among this group. In contrast, shorter receivers dominate yards gained between the twenties. So, what do these figures mean for the Redskins? Well, even though the Redskins' passing attack seems to be stacked with the additions of Jackson and Roberts to Reed and Garcon, only Reed is over 6'0" and Hankerson tore his ACL late in the season. The addition of Kelvin Benjamin would give the Redskins an Alshon Jeffrey-type receiver to add to this group and will make the Redskins a dangerous team in the red zone, and not just in between the 20s.
35 Cleveland
Derek Carr
    Fresno State
    QB
    Reach/Value:     +10
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
214
Alternate Pick #1
David Yankey
Alternate Pick #2
Gabe Jackson
Again, this pick largely depends on Houston's RD1 first pick overall. Having Ryan Fitzpatrick as a bridge QB leads one to the reasonable conclusion that they will pass on a QB until RD2. If, however, the Texans do take a QB, the Browns will certainly use the 26th pick on a QB. In our latest CMD, the Browns are rewarded for their patience and land Carr, who has been linked by numerous sources as the choice here. Browns Head Coach Mike Pettine gushes over Carr's prospects in this excellent piece by the Akron Beacon Journal. The game film doesn't lie, and Carr has done nothing to disprove his performance during this protracted offseason. ~Mike Sudds, Browns Analyst
36 Oakland
Allen Robinson
    Penn State
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     -3
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
220
Alternate Pick #1
Jordan Matthews
Alternate Pick #2
Davante Adams
After adding the havoc-wreaking Mack in RD1, Oakland will have brought in an elite defender, but they will still have needs. Primarily, the Raiders need a #1 target at the receiver position.Is Robinson that guy? If so, he or recent visitor Jordan Matthews of Vanderbilt, will be the pick. If not, a defensive tackle like Quarles, Tuitt, or Easley could be a viable option. While quarterback may be better left for RD3 or RD4 with Carr gone, do not be surprised if Garoppolo or Savage lands here. Given the options, Robinson has the size and skill set to help the team improve on their #29 ranking in touchdown receptions and may be the most logical choice here.
37 Atlanta
Cyrus Kouandjio
    Alabama
    LOT
    Reach/Value:     -10
Height:
6'7"
Weight:
322
Alternate Pick #1
Jace Amaro
Alternate Pick #2
Stephon Tuitt
During the 2013 regular season, Kouandjio had 14 knockdown blocks and allowed just 1.5 sacks in 286 pass attempts; however, during the Sugar Bowl, OU's Eric Striker beat Kouandjio often to the outside and had a strip-sack of QB A.J. McCarron late in the game. From the Falcon perspective, when your franchise QB was sacked 40 times in 2013 and starting OT Lamar Holmes allowed 10 of them, you have to invest in the OL . . . even if that investment had a poor Combine performance. Pro Football Focus graded the Falcons' OL equally inept at both running and pass protection, a negative 41 score for each category. Can Cyrus pick up his game? It's a gamble Atlanta has to take.
38 Tampa Bay
David Yankey
    Stanford
    OG
    Reach/Value:     -2
Height:
6'6"
Weight:
315
Alternate Pick #1
Scott Crichton
Alternate Pick #2
Ryan Shazier
Looking at the Bucs' roster, it's easy to conclude that the team's top draft needs are at WR and OG, so a DRAFTSIM model with Mike Evans and David Yankey looks pretty good, right?? Well, not if you look at who the team is hosting for official team visits. Check out this compilation of Bucs' official player visits, and you will find the five QB references in our RD1 analysis, in addition to the likes of CB Kyle Fuller and DE Dee Ford. The latter could compete with David Yankey here at the #34 pick. Until the team signed Micheal Johnson, Defensive End ranked as the team's top need. But the Bucs absolutely need starting talent at OG, so Yankey gets the nod.
39 Jacksonville
Dee Ford
    Auburn
    DE43
    Reach/Value:     +4
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
252
Alternate Pick #1
Scott Crichton
Alternate Pick #2
Jordan Matthews
Last week Jacksonville released sixth-year LB Russell Allen. Sensing that they could upgrade their depth at the position they signed four-year veteran Dakota Watson in Free Agency. Dave Caldwell understands they need more speed and better production from that position. Having RD1 talent Dee Ford fall to them in the 2nd would be a great start at both. The former Auburn DE is scheme-versatile; they could use him as a Stand-up Linebacker or a Hand-In the Dirt Edge Rusher. Ultimately, Ford is exactly what Gus Bradley is looking for as the "Leo" Backer in his defensive scheme. With a good draft and the recent FA acquisitions this defense is ready to compete on Sundays.
40 Minnesota
Jace Amaro
    Texas Tech
    TE
    Reach/Value:     +11
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
265
Alternate Pick #1
Scott Crichton
Alternate Pick #2
Bashaud Breeland
Once again Jace Amaro falls to the Vikings here in RD2. After the dust settled last week, I didn't get any hate mail from Vikings' fans, which tells me I'm either onto something or I've been written off. I'm hoping it's the former. In Jace Amaro, as Neal Coolong from Behind the Steel Curtain describes, the Vikings could be grabbing the next "Joker" to wreak havoc on NFL defenses. Think of the impact a guy who plays like Jimmy Graham would have in purple, on the same field as Adrian Peterson. Undoubtedly, this is a scary thought for opposing Defensive Coordinators. I say, bring it on!



41 Buffalo
A Seferian-Jenkins
    Washington
    TE
    Reach/Value:     -11
Height:
6'6"
Weight:
267
Alternate Pick #1
Scott Crichton
Alternate Pick #2
Jordan Matthews
I'm not just saying this because Amaro was taken one pick prior to AS-J, but the Bills get the better player for their scheme. Amaro will play more of a slot receiver position as he did 88% of the time at Texas Tech, where AS-J lines up all over the place (in-line, slot, wide, backfield). This unpredictability works in OC Nate Hackett's favor. The Bills need to ramp up their screen game, and that's AS-J's bailiwick. One more reason the Bills need AS-J: fewest drops as a TE, and Hackett intends to keep those chains moving this year.
42 Tennessee
Ryan Shazier
    Ohio State
    OLB34
    Reach/Value:     +6
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
237
Alternate Pick #1
James Gayle
Alternate Pick #2
Jackson Jeffcoat
The DRAFTSIM model can be cruel sometimes, as the Titans just miss out on players like Amaro and Ford. Fortunately, Tennessee can benefit from adding Mosley and Shazier. According to Pro Football Focus, every Tennessee Linebacker, except Akeem Ayers, graded out negatively, so they are all agruably upgradable. Shazier's quick first step and ability and quickness in coverage would help him translate into an immediate starter as a weakside linebacker. Though he is not the pure pass rusher teams like out of an outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme, Shazier does provide good penetration on blitzes, which will offer another wrinkle for Horton to add to his gameplans.
43 NY Giants
Stephon Tuitt
    Notre Dame
    DT43
    Reach/Value:     +5
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
304
Alternate Pick #1
Jordan Matthews
Alternate Pick #2
Davante Adams
The Giants like to use their defensive ends as defensive tackles in sub-packages, but the presence of Stephon Tuitt might allow them to get an athletic pass rusher with defensive end experience in their sub-packages without having to revert to their NASCAR package. Tuitt hasn't had a great pre-draft process or even a great 2013 season, but he has a lot of talent and has been compared to Richard Seymour by some scouts. The Giants have a positive history of developing defensive linemen (Marvin Austin being the exception) and should be able to maximize Tuitt's great physical abilities.
44 St Louis
Deone Bucannon
    Washington St.
    SS
    Reach/Value:     -27
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
215
Alternate Pick #1
Jordan Matthews
Alternate Pick #2
Davante Adams
After missing out on Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix, safety remains the Rams' most glaring need heading into RD2. The Rams clearly prefer their safeties to be equally-adept at both coverage and run support. Bucannon has very good ball skills, is excellent in run support, and has the range to play the role of centerfielder. Despite the obvious need at the safety position, the Rams have been curiously quiet in addressing it this off-season. To-date, the Rams have not signed a free agent safety, nor have they had any known pre-draft visits from the top safeties in this draft. The Rams are more secretive than most teams, for they don't even release the names of their pre-draft visitors.
45 Detroit
Kyle Van Noy
    BYU
    OLB43
    Reach/Value:     +4
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
243
Alternate Pick #1
Scott Crichton
Alternate Pick #2
Kareem Martin
Selecting Kyle Van Noy here validates the selection of FS Clinton-Dix in RD1. The Lions' brain trust realizes that if they are going to find quality in a Safety, they must act fast. Conversely, the nice depth in the OLB class affords the opportunity to wait until Day 2 of the draft. Here, they find CFB's sixth-ranked defender in tackles for loss since 2005. Van Noy played every LB position in BYU's multiple-front defense, and played both Defensive End positions as well.

46 Pittsburgh
Jordan Matthews
    Vanderbilt
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     +4
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
212
Alternate Pick #1
Davante Adams
Alternate Pick #2
Paul Richardson
The Steelers lost Emmanuel Sanders and Jericho Cotchery in Free Agency leaving Antonio Brown as the only receiver with more than ten catches last year. While expectations are high for second man Marcus Wheaton and even though there are some developmental players on the roster, the team definitely wants to add talent at receiver. Matthews is a well-rounded receiver with good height, adequate speed, great hands, and a proven record as a playmaker. Opposing SEC defenses knew he was getting the ball but he continued to produce, catching over 200 balls for more than a mile and a half of receiving over the last two years.
47 Dallas
Dominique Easley
    Florida
    DT43
    Reach/Value:     -8
Height:
6'2''
Weight:
288
Alternate Pick #1
Scott Crichton
Alternate Pick #2
Kelcy Quarles
Mr. Easley is coming to town for a visit . . . yep, if the Gator born to play 3-technique can recover from his most recent torn ACL as quickly as he did in 2010, Dallas may have a 2nd Round gem! It's true Dallas signed Henry Melton, a "quick-twitch" 3-technique DT for Marinelli's defense; however, he suffered a torn ACL last year as well. Whether utilizing the two disrupters as a platoon or simply "doubling down" on a bet that at least one of them will be ready to play, the position is entirely too important to Marinelli's scheme not to have quality depth, as Jason Hatcher took his 11 sacks, 7 QB hits, and 33 QB hurries from 2013 to the Redskins.
48 Baltimore
JaWuan James
    Tennessee
    ROT
    Reach/Value:     -13
Height:
6'6"
Weight:
311
Alternate Pick #1
Bishop Sankey
Alternate Pick #2
Carlos Hyde
Antonio Richardson has been the pick here previously, but his teammate has passed him on our Big Board. Jameshas been a starter at right tackle his entire career at Tennessee for an offensive line that was considered one of the nation's best. Adding the big Volunteer in RD2 along with a running back like Tre Mason in RD3 would go a long way toward boosting an offense that ranked dead last in yards per carry. Although Baltimore has some significant needs on defense, this draft will be considered a failure if it does not address the weakness of the offensive line and the running back positions.
