2017 NFL Mock Draft Round 2
Selections 33-48

Consensus Mock Draft #12 | March 22, 2017 01:30 AM EST

33 Cleveland
Cam Robinson
    Alabama
    OT
    Reach/Value:     -4
Height:
6'6"
Weight:
322
Original CMD#10 Pick:
DeShone Kizer
Alternate Pick #2
Jourdan Lewis

I never felt comfortable predicting Cam Robinson to the Browns at 12 but Cleveland has to jump on him here if he falls to this point. The bottom line is Cam Robinson has been one of the best offensive lineman in the country from the minute he stepped on campus at Alabama. He is a dominant run-blocker that proved at his Pro Day that he has the feet to play on the left should the Browns choose to trade Joe Thomas at some point. While the Browns have done an outstanding job of improving their offensive line, Robinson could be the final piece on the right side. The additions of Kevin Zeitler and JC Tretter, along with the return of Joel Bitonio will solidify the inside of that line. This, along with the additions of Myles Garrett and Jonathan Allen would make the Browns one of the better teams in the league up front on both sides of the ball, which is a long way from the one-win team they were in 2016. ~Austin Smith

Gareon Conley
    Ohio St
    CB
    Reach/Value:     +1
Height:

Weight:

Original CMD#10 Pick:
DeShone Kizer
Alternate Pick #2
Tim Williams

The other side of Jimmie Ward's move to FS is that the 49ers will need to add more talent at cornerback, and Gareon Conley would be a perfect fit early in RD2. Playing in the same secondary as two potential top 10 picks, Marshon Lattimore and Malik Hooker, has Conley sliding under the radar a bit. Affectionately referred to as the "Other" OSU corner, Conley allowed only 14 receptions for 159 yards on the season in 2016 (yes you read that correctly!), per Pro Football Focus. While he still needs to improve as a run defender, Conley is a talented press corner that would excel in Robert Saleh's system and could allow the 49ers to move on from Tramaine Brock when his contract runs out following the 2017 season. ~Brett Clancy


35 Jacksonville
Bucky Hodges
    Va Tech
    TE
    Reach/Value:     -30
Height:
6'6"
Weight:
257
Original CMD#10 Pick:
Dion Dawkins
Alternate Pick #2
DeShone Kizer

One position that looks a bit thin for the Jaguars, following a major makeover this spring is the TE spot. Specifically a high volume pass receiver to replace the disappointing Julius Thomas, an expensive free agent signing in 2015 brought in to complement a fine young wide-receiver corps. Thomas was traded as part of a deal bringing LT Brandon Albert to the team from Miami. An ideal draft candidate to fill that role appears to be Bucky Hodges out of VA Tech, a strapping 6'-6", 260-pounder with superb athleticism for his size. Not mentioned in the conversation alongside top TE prospects O.J. Howard and David Njoku, Hodges is actually bigger, equally athletic, and brings better college production than either. Hodges seems exceptionally mature for his years as well, and came to college as a QB recruit, adding broader football intelligence to his resume.


36 Chicago
DeShone Kizer
    Notre Dame
    QB
    Reach/Value:     +8
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
233
Original CMD#10 Pick:
Zay Jones
Alternate Pick #2
Budda Baker

Now this is more like it. No longer burdened with the expectation of finding a savior at pick #3, the Bears are free to wait and let a great, projectable talent fall into their lap at #36. Kizer is a bit of an enigma. One day he looks all-world, unleashing a natural cannon of an arm while gliding across the field. The next day he couldn't hit the ground with a handful of rice. Kizer has one of the top three arms in this draft, no question. The question is whether or not he can regulate that velocity sufficiently to make all the throws. Some of that can come with coaching, but alot of the skills that he seems to struggle with are innate - he can hit a receiver, but can he hit him in just the right place to avoid injury or to get that receiver 5 extra yards? (see the 1:02 mark in the same video above) Those questions need to be answered, but in the Second Round with a new starting QB under center, Chicago can afford to wait and find out if Kizer can become the franchise signal caller many think he can be.


37 LA Rams
Adoree Jackson
    USC
    CB
    Reach/Value:     +5
Height:
5'11"
Weight:
185
Original CMD#10 Pick:
Zay Jones
Alternate Pick #2
Cooper Kupp

Adoree Jackson is considered one of the most talented athletes in this upcoming draft class. At USC he made plays as a corner, wide receiver, and returner on special teams. Jackson had a stellar year his junior season winning the Jim Thorpe award and being named a All-America, collecting 5 picks and 11 PBUs. He also showed his versatility by returning two punts and two kickoffs for touchdowns as well. Jackson is only 5'10", 185 lbs but he makes his money by using his athleticism and speed to be able to play with some bigger and more physical receivers. He does a great job on creating angles on the ball to make the big play. He will need to learn when to pick and choose his aggression on the ball, and he might be limited in the slot early on due to his size (or lack of). The Rams already have a solid front seven that has the potential to be one of the best for years to come. For a team that ranked in the bottom half of the NFC in takeaways, they need to add more playmakers onto the backend of this defense. If the USC phenom is on the board, it would be tough for LA to pass up on Jackson. - Michael Gelb


38 LA Chargers
Jourdan Lewis
    Michigan
    CB
    Reach/Value:     +11
Height:
5'10"
Weight:
188
Original CMD#10 Pick:
Tre'Davious White
Alternate Pick #2
Dion Dawkins

In a somewhat surprising move, the Chargers cut ties with CB Brandon Flowers (along with DJ Fluker and Stevie Johnson) shortly before Free Agency began this year, leaving 3rd-year cornerback Craig Mager to play the nickel. After posting a solid 70 grade (according to ProFootballFocus.com's metrics) as a rookie in 2015, Mager ranked 106/112 at his position in 2016, and his teammate Trevor Williams wasn't much better, ranking 100/112. In short, the Chargers basically have Jason Verrett, Casey Hayward, and that's about it.

Fortunately, there's plenty of depth at cornerback in the 2017 NFL Draft, and there will be some good ones available in the 2nd Round. Jourdan Lewis is a player that can step in and play in the slot from Day 1. Though he's smaller in stature, Lewis has absolutely everything you want in a slot corner. He's extremely quick, agile, instinctive, competitive, and he's not afraid to get his nose dirty when it comes to defending the run. Because Gus Bradley tends to play from his base alignment a lot more than most defensive coordinators, the Chargers shouldn't feel too pressured to reach for a slot corner here in the 2nd. If a player like Lewis is available, though, they might just pull the trigger.


39 NY Jets
Tre'Davious White
    LSU
    CB
    Reach/Value:     -1
Height:
5'11"
Weight:
192
Original CMD#10 Pick:
Teez Tabor
Alternate Pick #2
Budda Baker

The Jets made two other notable Free Agent signing this week. Mike Maccagnan will hope that he has finally found D'Brickashaw Ferguson's replacement in ex Jags OT Kelvin Beachum. Former Dallas CB Morris Claiborne will also look to reignite his injury hampered career in Metlife, in a one year, prove-it deal. Claiborne, once labeled a bust, seems to have turned a corner. There was a notable upturn in his play last season, before he succumbed to a season ending groin injury. After putting all their eggs in the Ryan Clady basket last year, it would be smart move to get cover for the injury prone Claiborne, particularly with the quality and depth at CB, in this years' draft. Tre'Davious White, a 4 year starter for LSU looked good at the Combine. White ran the 40 in 4.47 and with 16 reps on the bench press, showed a nice combination of strength and speed. His kick return ability is an added bonus and may make him even more appealing to the Jets.


40 Carolina
Budda Baker
    Washington

    Reach/Value:     +6
Height:

Weight:

Original CMD#10 Pick:
Ethan Pocic
Alternate Pick #2
Zay Jones

At Pick #8, the Panthers took a player that plays the same position as newly-signed Free Agent, Julius Peppers. At Pick #40, they look to sign one that plays the same position as also newly-signed Free Agent Captain Munnerlyn. Budda is feisty, fast and would be a great addition to the Panthers' Secondary. He ran a 4.45 forty-time at the Combine and is quicker than fast. Also, he is a great blitzer off the edge, which the Panthers love to do. Just like Solomon in the First Round, this pick shows that the Panthers are looking to the future and are channeling their inner zen with Budda Baker. ~@PanthersDrafter, Panthers Analyst





41 Cincinnati
Tim Williams
    Alabama
    EDGE
    Reach/Value:     +5
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
244
Original CMD#10 Pick:
T.J. Watt
Alternate Pick #2
Demarcus Walker

After adding a boost to the passing offense in RD1 with WR Corey Davis, the Bengals look to add some punch on the defensive line this week in RD2 with Alabamaís Tim Williams. The Bengals finished tied for 19th in the NFL in sacks in 2016, so an edge rushing threat to pair with Carlos Dunlap could vault their pass rush back towards the top of the league. Tim Williams is an interesting case: he was one of the most dynamic, polished, and versatile pass rushers in the nation, yet was only a situational player for the Tide. Itís hard to say why Saban didnít play him more often, because he generates constant pressure on the QB when heís on the field. Watch some of his moves here, and get ready to say ĒOh no he didnít!Ē at 1:55.


42 New Orleans
Raekwon McMillan
    Ohio State
    ILB
    Reach/Value:     -9
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
240
Original CMD#10 Pick:
Jarrad Davis
Alternate Pick #2
Montravius Adams

This former Buckeye LB has jumped up the Drafttek.com Big Board 17 spots since the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine, and now lands with the Saints as their 3rd overall pick . Raekwon McMillan could possibly see action at MLB but may possibly slide to the weakside ILB spot and battle veteran Dannell Ellerbe.

The Saints will ultimately make this pick knowing that McMillan is a fundamentally sound tackler and helps solidify the middle of the defense, mainly on first and second downs. Would the Saints make this selection knowing CB Teez Tabor and OLB Jarrad Davis are still available with this pick? Maybe. Maybe not.

Our own Austin Smith has penned his thoughts right here on how McMillan might fit for either a 4-3 or 3-4 base defense. For the purpose of this CMD, however, we have New Orleans adding a talented player who can quickly size up what is happening on the field in front of him and react accordingly. He racked up over 230 tackles the past two seasons for Ohio State, and is a leader on the field.


43 Philadelphia

Original CMD#10 Pick:
T.J. Watt
Alternate Pick #2
Demarcus Walker

The Eagles arguably had the worst set of cornerbacks in the league in 2016. So what did they do? They let 2 of their top 3 CBs walk (Nolan Carroll and Leodis McKelvin), and added no one in Free Agency. Remember Jalen Mills, the guy from the 7th round with the green hair? He's your current #1 cornerback on the Eagles' depth chart. If that's not enough to scare you...C.J. Smith is the current #2 guy. So now that we've illustrated why the Eagles went cornerback in RD1 and RD2 this week, let's take a closer look at Teez Tabor. I'll state this plainly: Tabor's Combine sucked eggs. In my opinion, Tabor is the classic example of a guy that does not test well in track shoes and yoga pants, but knows how to ball on the field (9 career INTs, 3 TDs) and stand out on tape. He may not have the straight line speed you want (we'll see how he runs at his Pro Day this week), but he demonstrates great instincts, confidence, and closing speed to break up (or intercept) passes on the field. ~Broz, Eagles Analyst


44 Buffalo
Caleb Brantley
    Florida
    DL3T
    Reach/Value:     -23
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
297
Original CMD#10 Pick:
Zay Jones
Alternate Pick #2
Cooper Kupp

With some major positional needs addressed in Free Agency, Whaley can afford to take Kyle Williams' heir-apparent here. Although Kyle's been the heart and soul of Buffalo's D-Line, the 34-year-old is slated to pull down $8.4M in 2017. Caleb "Bull" Brantley would be a perfect infusion of talent, youth, and versatility on the Bills' defensive line. At 6'2" 297 lbs, Brantley is not likely depth behind Dareus at NT. He could be played at 5-technique in base and move to 3-technique in passing situations. Brantley is ProFootballFocus.com's top-rated D-Lineman in pass rush productivity in the SEC. He lacks finishing speed, but Brantley matches Aaron Donald in his initial quickness, penetration, and non-stop effort. He's been on the Bills' radar for some time (scouts at two of his games and Combine interview). Brantley's sure to be a coach's favorite, with his amazing attitude, bright mind, and interior disruptive presence that will help his teammates make plays.


45 Arizona
Patrick Mahomes II
    Texas Tech
    QB
    Reach/Value:     -26
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
229
Original CMD#10 Pick:
Dion Dawkins
Alternate Pick #2
Zay Jones

This may be a dream scenario for the Cardinals. Not only do they get a core defensive player in RD1, but they get a shot at a possible QB of the future by standing pat in RD2. Patrick Mahomes II has put up stunning numbers in Texas Tech's "Air Raid" offense the past two seasons, compiling 9,705 yards and 77 TDs. While the numbers from a college spread offense don't usually translate to the next level, Mahomes has the arm talent and natural accuracy that will. HC Bruce Arians is sure to love his confidence and swagger. While Mahomes is admittedly a bit of a project, Coach BA will have plenty of time to work with him while Carson Palmer is still in the fold. If they can hit on Mahomes with this pick, Arizona could set themselves up for the elusive, seamless transition at QB once Palmer retires.


46 Indianapolis
Davon Godchaux
    LSU
    DL5T
    Reach/Value:     +0
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
293
Original CMD#10 Pick:
T.J. Watt
Alternate Pick #2
Demarcus Walker

Colts' GM Chris Ballard made one of the most important remarks of his young tenure at the recent NFL Scouting Combine. He stated that Indy is not making "Instant Coffee." It underscores the void of depth and overall talent the Colts roster has become in the past few years. Davon Godchaux may not be the "glamour pick" that Colts Nation is relying on. Given time, however, he could become just as important. Maybe the Colts get lucky with an EDGE rusher in RD1, maybe not. Bottom line is a foundation must be created, and Godchaux has plenty of upside. Initially, the 6-3, 310 lb. DL from LSU will most likely see action on passing downs as a 3-tech, in nickel or dime packages. His run defense is suspect, but coaching and additional weight and strength conditioning could enhance that aspect. Godchaux had 14 QB sacks and 45 hurries the past two seasons (as a sophomore and junior), and was also one of the players the Colts purposely targeted and interviewed during the NFL Combine.

Original CMD#10 Pick:

Alternate Pick #2
JuJu Smith-Schuster

Zay Jones has a chip on his shoulder. A marginally recruited high school athlete, he went to a minor D1 college, and he, despite setting the record for all-time receptions, is an only lightly talked about prospect. None of that hurts his confidence, however as he has proclaimed his hands to be "the best in the Draft." Sound like a guy who is a good fit to come in as a "replacement" for Steve Smith? Jones is an ideal complement to a playmaking Mike Wallace and a high-ability receiver with less-than-stellar hands in Breshad Perriman. As the Ravens continue to look Flacco-centric on offense, Jones gives him a weapon that is desperately needed, and I'd be surprised to see Day 2 end without a receiver selected. That said, Evan Engram and T.J. Watt are two of the other prospects to keep in mind here.

Original CMD#10 Pick:
Dan Feeney
Alternate Pick #2
Montravius Adams

Say what you want about the Vikings overpaying for LT Riley Reiff and RT Mike Remmers, but the #1 priority for Rick Spielman going into this off season was to pick up two starting-caliber offensive tackles, and he did his job. The Vikings don't need a Top-5 offensive line to be a contending team in 2017, as their defense should continue to carry them, but if they can have an average unit in both pass protection and run blocking, their offense should be able to do more than enough to win a lot of games. That being said, there's still a hole at RG that could be filled, as Jeremiah Sirles is likely penciled in as the starter there right now.

In Dion Dawkins, the Vikings would get a player that has been a three-year starter at left tackle, but projects better on the right side as a pro. Check out this scouting report to learn more. It's hard to say how Dawkins will handle the transition, but he could work out the kinks in practice with Sirles in the starting lineup, then take over at RG when he's ready. At the end of the day, adding Reiff, Remmers, and Dawkins would give the Vikings a much-needed upgrade, as well as some of their best depth in a long time, on the offensive line.
