2017 NFL Mock Draft Round 2
Selections 33-48

Consensus Mock Draft #16 | April 20, 2017 01:10 AM EST

33 Cleveland
DeShone Kizer
    Notre Dame
    QB
    Reach/Value:     -7
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
233
Alternate Pick #1
Budda Baker
Alternate Pick #2
Quincy Wilson

Having selected two great players in the first round, the Browns come to this pick with a quarterback being one of the top prospects on the board. While a number of defensive backs would be enticing here, and I personally would select one, something tells me the Browns won't be able to resist selecting a quarterback at some point in this draft. It's like leaving a candy bar on the dinner table and telling your five-year-old not to eat it. The first night or two it may not move, but eventually you are bound to find that little devil with chocolate on his face and an empty wrapper in his hand. Well, the Cleveland Browns are that five-year-old, and with three of the top four candy bars in this draft already gone, they take the Ohio native himself. Kizer has some of the highest potential in this group with some of the largest bust-potential, as well. What I will say is he is smart, and knows how to play from the pocket. His arm is special, and if Hue Jackson can be patient with him, similar to the way he was in Baltimore when they drafted Joe Flacco, Kizer can have early success. Still, I would preach to the Browns to take a sabbatical from candy bars for the time being. ~Austin Smith


34 San Francisco
Budda Baker
    Washington
    S
    Reach/Value:     +7
Height:
5'10"
Weight:
195
Alternate Pick #1
Taco Charlton
Alternate Pick #2
Carl Lawson

The 49ers have made it clear that they are looking to add a safety in the draft. While many Niners fans are hoping for Malik Hooker, he's yet to visit the team. Coming off injuries after only one year as a starter, he'd be a long shot with the Niners' second-overall pick. Washington's Budda Baker, however, should be firmly in play early in RD2. Baker doesn't have Hooker's highlight reel, but he's a fierce, physical defender who'd fit perfectly in the 49ers' new defense. A three-year starter in a talented Washington secondary, Baker has the range and ball skills to challenge Jimmie Ward for the team's starting free safety spot with the flexibility to contribute, as a slot corner, should Ward win the job. ~Brett Clancy


35 Jacksonville
Adoree Jackson
    USC
    CB
    Reach/Value:     -10
Height:
5'10"
Weight:
186
Alternate Pick #1
Dion Dawkins
Alternate Pick #2
Montravius Adams

Jaguars' GM, David Caldwell, mentioned some time ago that his favorite draft pick was Dennard "Shoelace" Robinson, for his magnetic personality, and I'm sure he sees the same in USC CB Adoree "Sweet Pea" Jackson. Not that it would be an emotional pick at this spot, as Nolan Nawrocki and Gil Brandt both have Jackson rated as a first-round talent on recent draft boards. In terms of position fit for the Jaguars, the 5'-10, 186-pound speedster is so versatile he could contribute in any one of several roles. Jackson played multiple positions on both the offensive and defensive side of the ball during his college career, in addition to being the team's primary kick and punt returner. In 2016, he won both the Jim Thorpe Trophy as top defensive back in the nation, and the Jet Award as top return specialist, while still finding time to chip in on offense and compete in the Olympic Trials as a long-jumper. It is rare to land a player considered the best at one position in college, never mind two.


36 Chicago
Quincy Wilson
    Florida
    CB
    Reach/Value:     +8
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
211
Alternate Pick #1
Chidobe Awuzie
Alternate Pick #2
Zay Jones

There are many variables that will affect this pick - Will the Bears take a DB in RD1? Will they go DL and take a DB in RD2? Will a QB slip to pick 36? Will Pace trade back into the First to grab one of said Quarterbacks? As a Chicago fan, and as their mock analyst, I am preparing for any one of the multitude of scenarios out there. In this iteration, Chicago lucks into Solomon Thomas in the first, none of the QBs slip, and there are about a thousand starting-caliber DBs on the board. Here, Quincy Wilson is the pick: a physical one-on-one Corner with size and focus. Wilson is a high-floor, mid-ceiling player who will start quickly and for a long time. That said, it is a veritable DB buffet at pick 36, and don't be surprised to see the Bears walk away with any one of Jackson, Baker, Melifonwu, Lewis, Awuzie, etc. If DB isn't the play, I have already cast my vote for moving this pick back into the First Round to chase Pat Mahomes and his ungodly hose. But the real curveball on the table is a selection of Evan Engram, who the Bears have visited with and shown a true interest in. Regardless of the pick, I have faith that the player selected will be an early contributor.


37 LA Rams
Zay Jones
    East Carolina
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     -5
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
201
Alternate Pick #1
Chidobe Awuzie
Alternate Pick #2
Tre'Davious White

The Los Angeles Rams were one of the worst offensive teams in the league last year in almost every statistic. After they finally gave Jared Goff the keys to the offense, the Rams began the rebuild process that has been much needed for a few years now. With receivers like Kenny Britt and Brian Quick leaving in Free Agency, They should be looking for a young wideout with a lot of potential who can replace them. A guy like Zay Jones can do more than just replace them; he can be a true franchise number one receiver. Last season at East Carolina, he broke the single-season receptions record with 158. Yes, 158 receptions in 12 games... He's a ball magnet who does a great job high-pointing the football and finishing jump balls. Jones is a high character guy on and off the field and would be a player any organization would love to have. Zay Jones could be the next big piece to help this offense and allow sophomore QB Goff to take the next step to improving the passing game. ~Michael Gelb, Rams Analyst


38 LA Chargers
Chidobe Awuzie
    Colorado
    CB
    Reach/Value:     +7
Height:
6'0"
Weight:
202
Alternate Pick #1
Dion Dawkins
Alternate Pick #2
Tre'Davious White

This isn't the first time we've double-dipped on DBs for the Bolts, and it wouldn't be that much of a surprise of we see this happen again next week, when the real picks start rolling in. With the Chargers bringing in Gus Bradley as Defensive Coordinator, it stands to reason that he'll be bringing in players that fit the mold of what he's looking for. In Chidobe Awuzie, Coach Bradley would be getting the height and length he likes at corner and he'll be equally attracted to the corner's ability to play on an island in man coverage. Awuzie is an interesting draft story, as his stock has steadily climbed throughout the evaluation process. He would be a nice value pick here, but don't be surprised if he's not available when this pick comes up. If that is the case, I suspect the Bolts would hold off on addressing cornerback, shifting their focus to other needs.


39 NY Jets
Evan Engram
    Ole Miss
    TE
    Reach/Value:     -10
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
234
Alternate Pick #1
Tre'Davious White
Alternate Pick #2
Taco Charlton

We opt for a new face here this week, in the shape of Ole Miss TE Evan Engram. The Jets haven't used TEs much over the last 2 years under former OC Chan Gailey. With New Orleans' acquisition of TE Coby Fleener in last year's Free Agency, hopefully former Saints' OC and new Jets' OC John Morton have seen the value a TE can bring to an offense. All Jets TE's combined had 24 targets in 2015 and just 11 targets last season. Fleener had 82 targets under John Morton last year. The loss of Brandon Marshall (128 targets) should open up more opportunities for everyone else, including the TE's. With 65 catches for 926 yards and 8 TDs last season, Engram is a receiving TE that creates mismatches. At 6'3" and 235 lbs, he is too big for most DBs. With a time of 4.42 in the forty at the Combine, he is too fast for most LB's. If you want an in-line blocker, he isn't your guy, but he would be another young weapon to utilize in the passing game.


40 Carolina
Obi Melifonwu
    Connecticut
    S
    Reach/Value:     +7
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
224
Alternate Pick #1
Pat Elflein
Alternate Pick #2
Marcus Williams

In Round One, we compared Derek Barnett to Myles Garrett. Here in Round Two, let's look at Obi Melifonwu compared to Jamal Adams. I'm not saying Obi is better; however, I am saying, damn. Damn, this kid is 6'4 and ran the fastest forty time of any Safety at the Combine (4.4). He is long and rangy. Read this article on the interest level the Panthers have shown in one Obi. Okay, he may not be Obi-Wan Kenobi, but he is one great option for the Panthers at Pick 40.~@PanthersDrafter, Panthers Analyst





41 Cincinnati
Taco Charlton
    Michigan
    EDGE
    Reach/Value:     +6
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
277
Alternate Pick #1
Carl Lawson
Alternate Pick #2
Demarcus Walker

Cincinnati underperformed at getting to the QB last season. The Bengals recently traded for the services of DE Chris Smith who is a talented player but the jury is still out on how productive he cwill be. Taco Charlton fits the Bengal prototype coming off the edge. Johnson and Dunlap are both over 6'4" and very athletic. Charlton is a relentless pass rusher who has tremendous athleticism especially with his long frame. He has explosive legs and quick block shedding hands. There are some concerns about his work ethic and inconsistency but I do recall the same things being said about Carlos Dunlap when Marvin Lewis drafted him out of Florida. If coach Lewis can get the same production out of Charlton as with Dunlap, the Bengals will do nicely in 2017. If Charlton can put in the work this summer and finish the offseason with a strong camp he could earn a big role in the Cincy D-line rotation.


42 New Orleans
Tre'Davious White
    LSU
    CB
    Reach/Value:     -8
Height:
5'11"
Weight:
191
Alternate Pick #1
Marcus Williams
Alternate Pick #2
Raekwon McMillan

With two talented defensive linemen selected in RD1, the Saints stay on the defensive side of the ball yet again with an addition to the secondary. LSU's Tre'Davious Whitecompletes what could be the biggest trifecta of defensive talent that New Orleans has ever added in the first two rounds of a draft.

New Orleans could utilize White in press coverage against slot receivers, but his versatility provides the Saints with options. White is fluid with solid instincts. He also saw double-duty as a punt returner on the LSU special teams. Defensive Coordinator Dennis Allen and Saints' Secondary Coach Aaron Glenn are former teammates, so perhaps the two can convince Sean Payton and Mickey Loomis that an "all-defense" draft is the quickest route back to a Super Bowl for the Saints.


43 Philadelphia
Jourdan Lewis
    Michigan
    CB
    Reach/Value:     -33
Height:
5'10"
Weight:
188
Alternate Pick #1
Carl Lawson
Alternate Pick #2
Demarcus Walker

A lot of people may say that the Eagles' cornerbacks were beaten like a drum last year, and that they were a bunch of over-matched, under-talented, TD-surrendering, practice-squad-worthy schlumps, and while all of that may be true...wait, I forgot where I was going with this.

Anyhoo, the Eagles need corners in this draft (at least two), and they'll get them. This week, Philly doubles up on CBs, with Humphrey in RD1 and Jourdan Lewis here in RD2. Like Tre' White last week, some people feel Lewis is strictly a slot corner. I think that the WORST Lewis will be is a good nickel corner, with the upside of being a very good starting outside corner. These days, the third CB is arguably as important as your team's starting LBs, Safeties, and Defensive Tackles...so that "slot corner" designation really shouldn't be a negative any more than "third LB" is. Here's an unusual stat: Lewis has only allowed 905 yards receiving in the last three years COMBINED. Eye Test = Passed. ~Broz, Eagles Analyst


44 Buffalo
Caleb Brantley
    Florida
    DL3T
    Reach/Value:     -47
Height:

Weight:

Alternate Pick #1
Montravius Adams
Alternate Pick #2
Dalvin Tomlinson

I spend far too much time on Draftsmas.

I've had my tree up for weeks, with the blue ornaments on the RD2 branch hand-painted with the names copied from my personal spreadsheet: Carl Lawson, the one I made last year, but then he went back to Auburn (It's bigger than the Jerry Hughes ornament). My prized Caleb "Bull" Brantley, PFF's top-rated SEC D-Lineman in pass-rush productivity, so bright, it's brimming with its own energy, so disruptive. My Raekwon McMillan, my "fall-back" ornament if I don't grab the Foster or Reddick bauble on the next branch up. There's a spot where my precious Zay Jones and Chidobe Awuzie once hung; they were stolen by heathens from LA. Oh, and the lelftover Deshone Kizer bulb; it's bigger than most, but may take too long to polish. Sure hope Whaley Claus finds this place on April 27th.

I'll make cookies.


45 Arizona
Raekwon McMillan
    Ohio State
    ILB
    Reach/Value:     -7
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
240
Alternate Pick #1
Chris Wormley
Alternate Pick #2
Sidney Jones

If the Cardinals have serious interest in RD1 prospects like Reuben Foster and Hasson Reddick in RD1, they could target a prospect like Ohio State's Raekwon McMillan in RD2. McMillan was cast as a two-down, downhill thumper in run support early in the evaluation process. While McMillan may never excel in coverage, a strong showing at the Combine (4.61 forty-yard dash, 23 bench, 7.15 3-cone) showed he has the athletic ability to make plays at the next level. Look no further than McMillan's prodigious collegiate production, as he tallied 275 tackles, 6 sacks, 18 TFL, 1 INT, and 10 PD over three years in Columbus. The Cards brought Karlos Dansby back on a one-year deal to solidify the interior of the defense, but a playmaking linebacker like McMillan could be an excellent long-term partner with $LB Deone Bucannon.


46 Indianapolis
T.J. Watt
    Wisconsin
    EDGE
    Reach/Value:     +0
Height:
6'4"
Weight:

Alternate Pick #1
Carl Lawson
Alternate Pick #2
Demarcus Walker

The "Wattage level"in the AFC South will jump exponentially if the Colts end up selecting the younger Watt brother. The storylines will be as interesting (and redundant) as they were when Indy set up for the Peyton and Eli square-off. Only the Manning brothers didn't play each other twice a season like these two will if T.J. does, in fact, become a Colt.

While there's no doubt the Colts need Edge help, the bigger question will be, is Watt the right fit? My initial thought is that if he is half as good as his older brother, then yeah - go for it. Certainly he showed he could disrupt the QB in his 2016 season, compiling 11.5 sacks, along with batting down four passes and forcing another 2 fumbles. Add to that stat package his 63 total tackles and 15.5 TFL, and you can begin to see the potential that Indy might have when T.J. puts on the Shoe.


47 Baltimore
Carl Lawson
    Auburn
    EDGE
    Reach/Value:     +6
Height:

Weight:

Alternate Pick #1
Chris Wormley
Alternate Pick #2
Davon Godchaux

When I ranked Carl Lawson #1 coming out of high school, I projected that he would surpass Dwight Freeney. A college career hindered by injuries has tempered my confidence in that projection, but coming anywhere close to reaching that potential would make him a major steal in Rd2. Lawson is a physical freak, a great lockerroom presence, and a determined worker who will never have an off-the-field issue. His ability to be versatile, drop into coverage, or stay healthy remain question marks, but this is a best case scenario for Baltimore at #47. Since 2013, Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil combined for 65.5 sacks over 4 injury riddled seasons. Half of the tandem is gone, and the other half will turn 35 during the 2017 season. The former Auburn star is the solution to re-energizing the Ravens' pass rush. Other options: Chris Wormley would help replace Timmy Jernigan, Alvin Kamara could be a big-time back, and Cooper Kupp would be a great addition to the receiving corps. There are a lot of ways this pick could go.


48 Minnesota

Alternate Pick #2
Dan Feeney

For the first time this draft season (I think!?), the Vikings land powerful defensive lineman Montravius Adams. Adams' stock took a big jump after he lit it up in Mobile, during Senior Bowl Week. Talent has never really been the concern for him, though, as he's been criticized in many scouting reports for his lack of consistent effort, which certainly won't sit well with a coach like Mike Zimmer. Having said that, I personally feel like it's hard to believe that a guy can play for Coach Zim, along with the high-effort group of defensive lineman the Vikings already have, and not be motivated on a regular basis. With that in mind, I strongly believe that a Defensive Tackle is on the Vikings' radar in RD2 and they won't be afraid to pull the trigger on Montravius Adams, especially with the future of Sharrif Floyd in doubt.
