    With the 45th overall pick, the San Diego Chargers select...



    Arthur Brown, LB, Kansas State

    Kind of a tough spot for the Chargers. I was tempted to go with Eddie Lacy, as I've not been particularly impressed with Ryan Mathews. Cornerback is a possibility, but I don't see a great value on the board there. Could double dip the offensive line ala Detroit. Ultimately, I went with Brown, who would line up right next to Donald Butler in the hole vacated by Takeo Spikes, and give the Chargers a great young set of inside linebackers in their defensive scheme.

    With the 46th overall pick, the Our St. Louis Rams select:
    2013 ClanRam Insiders 2 Round Mock Draft (Selection Thread)-eric-reid.jpg

    Eric Reid, S, LSU

    Many thought Reid would be a 1st round selection. Having him available in the 2nd is a very nice surprise for our RAMS.

    Reid has the ability to play throughout a number of different coverage packages. Reid can patrol the middle of the field with real dominance. He is genuine run stopper as well. His raw speed and quick change of direction will allow him to make great plays on the ball, he's already a proven top tackler.

    With the 47th overall pick in the draft, the Dallas Cowboys select:

    2013 ClanRam Insiders 2 Round Mock Draft (Selection Thread)-tankkk.jpg

    Cornelius "Tank" Carrdine, DE, FSU

    Tank is probably the top 4-3 DE in this draft had he stayed healthy. He got unlucky and tore his ACL this past year. Prior to that, I believe he outperformed teammate Bjoern Werner. Carradine has prototypical size. He is powerful but also decisively quick. He's an absolute steal at this spot in the draft. I know the Cowboys just franchise tagged Anthony Spencer, but you don't pass on a prospect for a 1 yr deal kind of guy. Having Carradine across from Ware will be vicious and deadly, especially on rushing downs where they can swing Spencer or Carradine at DT. They'll need all the pass rush they can get going up against RG3, Vick, and Eli Manning.

    Re: 2013 ClanRam Insiders 2 Round Mock Draft (Selection Thread)

    With the 48th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers select:


    JOHN JENKINS, NT, GEORGIA

    The Steelers may have finally hit the wall in terms of being able to carry one of the oldest rosters in the NFL. Their defensive line is old, James Harrison was injured and old last year, and their secondary is old. Their offensive line got some youth last year, and it's the defense's turn. The first round addressed the pass rush with Moore, and there is still some depth at Safety in the draft. Corner was never a great position anyway, but that was an option as well. Justin Hunter looks like a possible replacement for Mike Wallace, but I think the Steelers feel they need to address the defense first, and as long as they keep Sanders, they can afford to wait on a receiver.

    As for Jenkins, he is a massive human being who will dominate in the Steelers 3-4. He was born to play their nose, and will easily clog up the middle, replacing Casey Hampton, who looks like he won't be back with the Steelers.
    I believe!

    With the 49th pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the New York Giants select:

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	hunt.jpg 
Views:	264 
Size:	94.6 KB 
ID:	3391

    Margus Hunt, DE SMU

    The Giants elected to grab a linebacker in the first round, and are happy to see a versatile talent like Hunt fall to them in round 2. The Giants are always quick to bolster their defensive line, and last year's struggles from both of their starting ends as well as the departure of Osi to free agency will only heighten that urge here.

    Hunt started football at a late age, concentrating instead on track and field early on in life, so he's still very raw with plenty of potential and upside. He is a mammoth of a man standing 6'8 and weighing in at 277 pounds, but A 4.6 40 at the combine shows he has the speed to rush from the edge. He's a very intriguing athletic specimen and provides great versatility to play up and down the line, a trait the Giants covet in their defenders. He lined up at both 4-3 and 3-4 ends, as well as 4-3 tackle during his senior season with the Mustangs. Hunt can also block kicks like nobody's business, knocking down 17 in his career.

    Hunt steps into a defensive rotation that will allow him to start slowly, learning and developing from a talented group, so that he may properly reach his huge ceiling.

    With the 50th pick, the Chicago Bears select.....



    Kawann Short, DT, Purdue

    The Bears franchised their top pass rusher in Henry Melton. Even if he comes back, they will need to add to that line. They get excellent value with Short available at #50. Not all that stout on the run, but an excellent pass rusher.

    The Bears could also look to rebuild the LB corp with Khaseem Greene, or go with an interior lineman like Kyle Long or Barrett Jones.

    Re: 2013 ClanRam Insiders 2 Round Mock Draft (Selection Thread)

    With the 51st pick, the Washington Redskins select:


    David Amerson, DB, North Carolina State
    The Redskins finally make their first selection of the draft. They need a lot of help in the defensive backfield, and Amerson has huge upside. Few come to the table with his combination of size (6'1, 205) and speed (4.44 forty). While he had a disappointing campaign in 2012, he is a potentially a great value at this point in the draft. Time will tell whether his best position is CB or FS.

    With the 52nd overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft, the Minnesota Vikings select:


    Blidi Wreh-Wilson, CB, UConn

    After the loss of Antonie Winfield to clear cap space, the Vikings find themselves with a big hole at Cornerback. Blidi Wreh has prototypical cornerback size at 6'1, and the minimal 4.5 speed that teams want from their corners. Blidi is also a big time playmaker with 8 interceptions in his 4 year college career including two pick sixes. All this despite missing 5 games his Junior year. Blidi Wreh steps in immediately and competes for the starting spot opposite Chris Cook.

    Re: 2013 ClanRam Insiders 2 Round Mock Draft (Selection Thread)

    With the 53rd overall pick, the Cincinnati Bengals select...



    Matt Barkley, QB, USC

    Nothing about this pick makes sense, right? But hear me out.

    With an extra second round pick, the Bengals have the potential to do something a little unexpected. They've already grabbed a linebacker and a safety to help their defense. They'd be wise to look on the offensive side of the ball.

    Sure, Eddie Lacy is on the board and he'd make a lot of sense as part of the Cincinnati backfield. They could go with a receiver in Justin Hunter or Robert Woods to give their offense another weapon. But none of those players represent the value of Matt Barkley - a possibility to go in the first round if not the Top Ten if a team is needy enough. He is too good to pass up.

    In a radio interview this month, Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden indicated that Andy Dalton is still their guy, but he needs to improve in all areas of the game. The Bengals also need a back-up quarterback, because Josh Johnson really doesn't offer much for that role. So with Barkley, they get the best of both worlds. They get a capable back-up with first round potential whom they could trade for picks down the road if Dalton improves, or they get a talented signal-caller to push and perhaps replace Dalton if he doesn't make strides.

    With the 54th pick overall, the Miami Dolphins select:
    2013 ClanRam Insiders 2 Round Mock Draft (Selection Thread)-justin-hunter.jpg

    Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee

    Hunter is gradually recovering from a 2011 torn ACL. He totaled 73 receptions for 1,083 yards and 9 TD's in 2012. At the combine, Hunter gave proof that the lanky, blazing fast receiver from 2010 and 2011 was on his way back. The Dolphins need more weapons for Ryan Tannehill and Hunter will become more of a deep threat the further he gets from his injury.

    With the 55th overall pick in the draft, the Green Bay Packers select:

    2013 ClanRam Insiders 2 Round Mock Draft (Selection Thread)-edddiii.jpg

    Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama

    No SJ? No problem. The Packers land the consensus #1 RB in the draft. They finally get a guy who can carry the rock 20+ times a game and be their featured back. A guy who can be the grinder in between the tackles, someone who can run down the clock effectively. Lacy will fit right in here. I was thinking of swinging Geo Bernard here because he is so explosive, but the Packers need a true hard nosed RB. Lacy is a big and strong back, and the Packers get better with the selection.

    Re: 2013 ClanRam Insiders 2 Round Mock Draft (Selection Thread)

    With the 56th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks select:


    KYLE LONG, OT, OREGON

    The Seahawks went into the offseason off an amazing ride last season as they paid a large contract to Matt Flynn who then never started for them after Russell Wilson defied the odds and not only started and got them to the playoffs, but won the wild card game in Washington. Of course he had a lot of help from the defense(and the replacement refs... fail mary).

    And so, going into the offseason, the Seahawks needed more help on the offensive line, receiver and the pass rush. They addressed the latter two through trading for Harvin and picking up seemingly half the defensive end and tackle population. Finally picking in the 2nd round, they take the Rams' Chris Long's very own brother who played tackle in the Seahawks' backyard at Oregon. He'll fit in at RT or Guard to protect Wilson. Besides, the NFC West can't have too much Long.
    I believe!

    With the 57th pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Houston Texans select:

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	sylvester-williams1.jpg 
Views:	161 
Size:	96.4 KB 
ID:	3394

    Sylvester Williams, DT North Carolina

    One could argue that the Texans have more pressing needs after an explosive year from JJ Watt and the continued solid presence of Antonio Smith, but they simply can't ignore a talent of this caliber falling to them this far into the second round, as Williams was predicted by many as a first round pick. Another offensive weapon or possibly a safety would be nice here, but the ability to turn the defensive line into an enormous strength outweighs those interests.

    While he did play in a 4-3 at North Carolina, Williams was asked to line up at the nose and on the edge, and has the strength and bulk to play at the end position or at tackle in a 3-4. He has a quick first step and a great swim move to breach the pocket and rush the passer. His success will largely be determined by his own work ethic, which has been called into question throughout his career, and may be a big reason why he slips to the end of the second round. However, The Texans believe that grouping him with Watt and Smith will help keep him in line. Williams will immediately step into a solid rotation and help bolster an already thriving defensive unit.

    The Texans also do well in keeping his services from reaching Conference foes Denver and New England, who would have loved to pounce on Williams had he fallen a tad further.

    Re: 2013 ClanRam Insiders 2 Round Mock Draft (Selection Thread)

    With the 58th pick, the Broncos select.....


    Bacarri Rambo, S, Georgia

    At 13-3, the Broncos don't have a lot of holes except to replace Dumervil (which we did for them in round 1). Manning won't be around forever, so they could try to get his replacement here. Magahee is 32, so the same could be said of RB as QB. But the value of Rambo with this pick just makes too much sense, IMO. Some scouts see his coverage skills as 2nd only to Vacarro, which is saying something in a very deep class of Safeties. As well, he is a ballhawk who finds his way to the pigskin.

    Both starters (Mike Adams and Rahim Moore) are still with the team, but Adams is over 30 and both could be upgraded.

    With the 59th pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the New England Patriots select:


    Markus Wheaton, WR, Oregon State
    The Patriots' offense is built around attacking the middle of the field with slot-receiver Danny Amendola and the TE duo of Gronk and Gonzalez. What they need is a player who can "take the top off the defense." Wheaton is the best remaining option to fill this role. He's a player who not only times fast, he plays fast. As he'll see a lot of single coverage in New England, expect him to make some big plays as a rookie.
