2017 NFL Mock Draft Round 2
Selections 49-64

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

49 Washington
Demarcus Walker
    Florida St
    EDGE
    Reach/Value:     +5
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
280
Alternate Pick #1
Marcus Williams
Alternate Pick #2
Zach Cunningham

Trent Murphy is suspended for the first four games of the 2017 season because of a failed PED test. What's ironic about this pick is that my comparable for DeMarcus Walker was...Trent Murphy! Walker is a workman-like EDGE defender who is strong against the run and is going to play assignment-sound. Walker's going to get the sacks that are schemed for him, but he likely will not be cruising past any tackles in the NFL. He is also versatile and could be @Kennedy_Paynter on Twitter


50 Tampa Bay
Marcus Williams
    Utah
    S
    Reach/Value:     +2
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
202
Alternate Pick #1
Adam Shaheen
Alternate Pick #2
Gerald Everett

The DRAFTSIM has been mocking Williams to the Bucs often over the past few months, more often than any other player. And why not? He's the rangy single-high Free Safety that represents the Bucs' #1 need. Williams is hecka athletic and a proven playmaker. Matt Miller says that Williams is a little lean and needs to add strength, but he's got a reputation at Utah for professional preparation habits, so expect that to happen.

The Bucs' brass haven't visited with WIlliams, although this could be subterfuge. According to WalterFootball, only Budda Baker and Obi Melifonwu really fit the mold the team is looking for, among tracked visits. Both are off the board at #50. I have no idea who the Bucs will select on Day 2 of the draft, but in this scenario Marcus Williams makes as much sense as anyone.


51 Denver
Jarrad Davis
    Florida
    OLB
    Reach/Value:     -10
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
238
Alternate Pick #1
Chris Wormley
Alternate Pick #2
Davon Godchaux

As much as I think Davis falling here is a stretch, it is not uncommon for middle linebackers to fall in the draft. Often some of the biggest steals in this process are linebackers in the second round. If this indeed happens, I would expect the Broncos to jump on him. If not, T.J. Watt visited Denver for a workout, and could make the transition to playing Inside Linebacker in that scheme if asked. Either way, the defense needs some young blood to help re-energize a unit that took a step back in 2016. ~Austin Smith


52 Cleveland
Sidney Jones
    Washington
    CB
    Reach/Value:     -6
Height:
6'0"
Weight:
186
Alternate Pick #1
Taylor Moton
Alternate Pick #2
Desmond King

I was debating between debating between Jones and Teez Tabor here, and I came to the conclusion that the torn Achilles scares me less than the 4.75 forty. I know Tabor (and draft fans across the country) would tell me to watch the tape, and I have. I have also watched tape of Antonio Brown and A.J. Green, and a 4.75 ain't keeping up with them. Also, the tape on Jones isn't all that different than that of Tabor. Both had three strong seasons before declaring as Juniors. Who knows, if the Browns get lucky, Tabor may still be available at pick 65, and they can let them duel it out on the practice field. ~Austin Smith


53 Detroit
Zach Cunningham
    Vanderbilt
    OLB
    Reach/Value:     +0
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
234
Alternate Pick #1
Tyus Bowser
Alternate Pick #2
Rasul Douglas

Zach Cunningham gives the Lions' defense the linebacker they've been coveting for years. His elite ability to be a playmaker, with 125 tackles including 16.5 TFL, reflects a linebacker just scratching at potential. What stands out about Cunningham, however, is his football intelligence. He never takes a bad angle or feels out of position. In this clip, you can see Zach is peeking into the backfield while working the sideline to the ball carrier; he's waiting to explode.

The cherry topping is Cunningham's ability to cover tight ends and running backs alike. Keep in mind, while Vanderbilt is a respectable school, doesn't have a "Who's Who" of former 5-star prospects playing on their defense and yet, Cunningham excelled in his Junior year. When you mix speed, coverage ability, and football intelligence in a player who blows up the Combine, you get a special talent ready for unparalleled success.


54 Miami
Dion Dawkins
    Temple
    OG
    Reach/Value:     +11
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
314
Alternate Pick #1
Dan Feeney
Alternate Pick #2
Dorian Johnson

The Dolphins struck gold last when they were able to acquire one of the best two or three players in the draft at pick 13. For having the guts to draft Tunsil, who'll probably become very acquainted with Hawaii over the next decade, the Dolphins should pot themselves on the back...I mean pat (hehe, get it?). If Miami could ride this good fortune and pair Tunsil up with a couple of big, talented interior linemen, they could quickly find themselves sporting one of the best O-Lines in the league, which would make Jay Ajayi and Ryan Tannehill very happy.

A four year starter at left tackle for Temple, Dion Dawkins brings all kinds of experience to the NFL. He'll move inside to guard for the Dolphins...but the versatility to fill in at tackle when needed is invaluable. Miami finished 10th in the league with only 30 sacks allowed, so an infusion of talent coupled with the emerging stardom of Tunsil could have Miami challenging Dallas for the title of #1 NFL O-Line in no time.


55 NY Giants
Chris Wormley
    Michigan
    DL5T
    Reach/Value:     +17
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
298
Alternate Pick #1
Taylor Moton
Alternate Pick #2
Adam Shaheen

The 2016 Giants' defense was among the league's best and returns ten of its eleven starters in 2017. After five weeks on the free agent market, defensive tackle Jonathan Hankins was able to find a team willing to meet his $10 million annual price tag, as he signed with the Indianapolis Colts last week. Chris Wormley adds rotational versatility, offering D-Line value inside at the 3-technique and outside at Defensive End under Coach Spagnuolo. He reportedly brings high character and leadership qualities to a locker room. Giants' defensive line coach Patrick Graham attended the Michigan Wolverine's Pro Day back in March.


56 Oakland
Derek Rivers
    Youngstown St
    EDGE
    Reach/Value:     -11
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
248
Alternate Pick #1
Jordan Willis
Alternate Pick #2
Alvin Kamara

If Oakland opts for a prospect on the offensive side of the ball in RD1, there is almost no way the franchise neglects the defensive side in RD2. On that side of the ball, only Khalil Mack, Bruce Irvin, and Karl Joseph are nearly certain to be a key component of the team's plans in 2018, so, with a unit full of gaping holes, look for the Silver & Black to heavily consider using an early selection on addressing the area where it all starts- the front. If it comes to prioritizing, Reggie could choose to address the league's worst pass rush with a player like Derek Rivers- a beastly sleeper prospect. Recent RD2 picks Mario Edwards and Jihad Ward have serious questions and have combined for only two sacks in their respective careers. Even if one or both ultimately pan out, neither are built as true edge rushers. Adding a player that can get to the QB, would help the abysmal LB corps and the weak pass coverage of the Raiders by taking some of the pressure off of those units. If they choose to go another route, Davon Godchaux would be the next best fit of the available prospects in this mock. Should the Raiders not land Marshawn Lynch, Alvin Kamara or Joe Mixon could be in the conversation, but I would be stunned if offense gets the first two selections.





57 Houston
Jordan Willis
    Kansas State
    EDGE
    Reach/Value:     -18
Height:

Weight:

Alternate Pick #2
Davon Godchaux
Alternate Pick #2
Elijah Qualls

Most of the football world is projecting a QB or RT to the Texans in RD1, to include a General with deep ties. QB and OT are Houston's greatest weaknesses; both positions must be addressed this offseason. While there's a steep decline in value beyond the top five QB prospects, the difference between a RD1 and RD3 OT prospect is less. Therefore, I believe QB remains Houston's #1 priority entering the draft, as long as the cost is not too high. After fielding the league's top defense last season, one would think defense is not a need. But after losing three starters to FA and potentially Wilfork to retirement; it is vital for the Texans to reload the defense. One highly-underrated defender that could become elite is Jordan Willis. Since Willis played college in an offensive conference, he's been overlooked by many people. True scouts know what Willis brings to the table: a relentless competitor that fights to the whistle on every play, who has been a key contributor since his true Sophomore season. Over the past three seasons, Willis has compiled 24.5 sacks and 38.5 TFL in 37 games played. That's steady production, folks! ~CME, Texans Analyst


58 Seattle
Cooper Kupp
    E Washington
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     +1
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
204
Alternate Pick #2
JuJu Smith-Schuster
Alternate Pick #2
Taylor Moton

There's only so many weeks I can write about how bad Jermaine Kearse was in 2016. Unluckily, Seattle has other issues in the receiving game. Tyler Lockett is coming off a rather-gruesome injury after underperforming his rookie year: Fewer targets, receptions, yards, and TD while also posting a lower catch percentage (2015, 73.9%; 2016, 62.1%). In order for Seattle to hedge their bets on offense, they should look towards playmakers like Cooper Kupp. The affable EWU man snagged 428 career catches, enabling him to rack up 6,464 yards and 73 TD (all of which are FCS records). A man of his talents would work wonders in Seattle. ~@JefferyMChapman, Seahawks Analyst


59 Kansas City
Alvin Kamara
    Tennessee
    RBF
    Reach/Value:     -19
Height:
5'10"
Weight:
214
Alternate Pick #2
Anthony Walker
Alternate Pick #2
Tarrell Basham

Alvin Kamara may be the best fit for KC's RB needs. The Hutchinson Community College transfer runs with excellent balance and is extremely productive, tallying 23 TDs in just 284 touches at Tennessee. He also has great hands catching the ball out of the backfield. Kamara set a school record for all-purpose yardage in the Vols' 45-38 double-overtime loss at Texas A&M this season, finishing with 312. He became the first player from a Power-5 school in 20 years to gain 150 yards receiving and 125 yards rushing in the same game. Kamara split carries with Jalen Hurd at Tennessee until the latter abruptly left the team in October last season with plans to transfer. Some feel that the Vol's offense improved once Kamara took the full load. Based upon Hurd's mother's tweet during Kamara's Combine workout, sour grapes exist. Hurd will most likely be available in the Supplemental Draft, usually in early July.


60 Dallas
Tarrell Basham
    Ohio
    EDGE
    Reach/Value:     -23
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
269
Alternate Pick #2
Desmond King
Alternate Pick #2
Ryan Anderson

Cuzzin Jerruh wants a "War Daddy" . . . that would be a Hell-Bent-For-Leatherpass-rusher coming off the EDGE to inflict bodily harm on opposing QBs! Assuming (as we are wont to do here at DraftTek) that RD1 did not result in this type of prospect, a personal favorite of DC Rod Marinelli is available: Tarrell Basham (doncha just love that last name?).

His production at Ohio illustrates a consistency that is hard to match: Freshman All-American notice (9.5 TFL, 7.5 sacks), Sophomore season (6 TFL, 5 sacks), Junior season (led team with 11 TFL, 5.5 sacks), and in his Senior season earned Mid-American Conference's Defensive POY (16 TFL, 11.5 sacks - tied for 11th in the FBS). Yes, Tarrell was quite a football player during his career at Ohio, but his parents are probably most proud of his perfect high school attendance and the fact he's the first member of the family to attend college. This fits HC Jason Garrett's definition of the "Right Kind of Guy"!


61 Green Bay
Ryan Anderson
    Alabama
    EDGE
    Reach/Value:     -29
Height:

Alternate Pick #2
Davon Godchaux
Alternate Pick #2
Tyus Bowser

One word that has unfortunately been widely used to describe the Packers' defense is "soft." There aren't enough players that bring intensity and nastiness like Mike Daniels does, for example. One quick way for the Packers to improve that situation would be to draft Ryan Anderson. Described as "the most hateful" player on Alabama's defense, Ryan looks to intimidate opponents, not just outplay them. He's physical and aggressive without crossing any lines and is as assignment-sure as you could ask of an edge defender. Anderson holds the edge against the run, attacks the quarterback while maintaining lane integrity, and locates the ball consistently. He's not your flashy speed-rusher type, but he will be a disrupter and cause the quarterback some angst, even if he doesn't get a sack. Anderson will be a solid NFL starter for years to come.

62 Pittsburgh
Tyus Bowser
    Houston
    EDGE
    Reach/Value:     -17
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
247
Alternate Pick #2
Davis Webb
Alternate Pick #2
Brad Kaaya

Having landed a target of opportunity at TE in the first, the Steelers have no choice but to address needs here in the second. There is no more pressing need than Outside Linebacker for the team. While James Harrison is taking his farewell tour, the Steelers would ideally be rotating in a talented draft pick to take over next year. Bowser is an elite athlete (37.5" Vert, 6.75 sec 3-Cone) with rare collegiate experience playing standing up and dropping into coverage. He should be able to see the field fairly early as a result of his college system. While his ceiling may be a little limited by his size, he's been a productive player (8.5 sacks in 8 games as a Senior) with the tools to excel at the next level.


63 Atlanta
Tanoh Kpassagnon
    Villanova
    DL5T
    Reach/Value:     -26
Height:
6'7"
Weight:

Alternate Pick #2
Davon Godchaux
Alternate Pick #2
Marcus Maye

With the hole at Guard filled, the Falcons will need to address the edges of their DL. When your team has 34 sacks and one player gets 15.5 of them, that's more than a little unbalanced. Vic Beasley will need help, even with the growth of Grady Jarrett and the return of Adrian Clayborn and Derrick Shelby. However, that returning talent could allow the Falcons to gamble on a high-upside talent that needs time to develop, and no one fits that better than Kpassagnon. He has unbelievable length, height, and explosive power, but Kpassagnon is definitely raw. Still, Quinn really seems intrigued by him and he would be worth taking a risk on, with most of the pass rushers off the board. In a perfect world, a LEO rusher like Derek Rivers or TJ Watt would fall this far, but alas, this is not a perfect world. Kpassagnon makes a nice compensation pick.


64 Carolina
Pat Elflein
    Ohio St
    OC
    Reach/Value:     +10
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
303
Alternate Pick #2
Taylor Moton
Alternate Pick #2
Roderick Johnson

The Panthers went Defense with their first two picks and now it is time to focus on the other side of the ball. Ryan Kalil is getting old and there needs to be a long-term plan to replace him. Elflein is a player that will add versatility and will grow into a great replacement to Ryan Kalil one day and immediately provide depth to all of the interior line positions.. Elflein can provide interior strength and help protect Cam Newton for years to come. Great pick late in Round Two. He is seen as a very safe pick. ~@PanthersDrafter, Panthers
