    Evan Silva's Second-Day Mock Draft

    Second-Day Mock Draft
    Friday, April 26, 2013

    For the draft's final two days, be sure to follow along with Mike Clay's NFL Draft Tracker, which updates each selection and also provides full details as each draft-day trade unfolds.

    This is my mock projection of the next two rounds:

    33. Jaguars -- Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib

    Day One Addition(s): RT Luke Joeckel

    Nassib is strongly rumored to be the top QB on Jacksonville's board.

    34. ***** -- Stanford TE Zach Ertz

    Day One Addition(s): FS Eric Reid

    Ertz is a pass-catching upgrade in the old Delanie Walker role.

    35. Eagles -- Alabama NT Jesse Williams

    Day One Addition(s): RT Lane Johnson

    Philly's defense gets more physical by selecting immovable Williams.

    36. Lions -- Florida State OT Menelik Watson

    Day One Addition(s): RE Ezekiel Ansah

    Offensive line is Detroit's biggest need after the Ansah pick.

    37. Bengals -- Florida International S Johnathan Cyprien

    Day One Addition(s): TE Tyler Eifert

    The Bengals may have drafted Cyprien 21st had Eifert not fallen.

    38. Cardinals -- North Carolina State QB Mike Glennon

    Day One Addition(s): RG Jonathan Cooper

    Carson Palmer is 33. Glennon becomes Bruce Arians' QB of the future.

    39. Jets -- West Virginia QB Geno Smith

    Day One Addition(s): CB Dee Milliner, DT Sheldon Richardson

    The Jets' focus turns to offense on day two. Geno is their top QB.

    40. Titans -- Florida State DE Tank Carradine

    Day One Addition(s): RG Chance Warmack

    Tennessee needs another pass rusher to mask its shaky secondary.

    41. Bills -- Tennessee WR Justin Hunter

    Day One Addition(s): QB E.J. Manuel

    Hunter is the field stretcher Buffalo has lacked since Lee Evans' prime.

    42. Raiders -- Kentucky OG Larry Warford

    Day One Addition(s): CB D.J. Hayden

    The Raiders are desperate for power blockers. Warford is a mauler.

    43. Buccaneers -- Cincinnati TE Travis Kelce

    Day One Addition(s): CB Darrelle Revis

    Kelce is a fantastic all-around tight end and can start right away.

    44. Panthers -- Boise State CB Jamar Taylor

    Day One Addition(s): DT Star Lotulelei

    After stealing Star, cornerback leaps atop Carolina's list of needs.

    45. Chargers -- Arkansas-Pine Bluff LT Terron Armstead

    Day One Addition(s): RT D.J. Fluker

    GM Tom Telesco isn't finished adding talent to a brutal offensive line.

    46. Bills -- Kansas State ILB Arthur Brown

    The Bills add physicality at inside 'backer by picking thumper Brown.

    47. Cowboys -- South Carolina S D.J. Swearinger

    Day One Addition(s): G/C Travis Frederick

    With the O-Line squared away, safety is Dallas' top remaining need.

    48. Steelers -- Alabama RB Eddie Lacy

    Day One Addition(s): OLB Jarvis Jones

    Lacy is the back the Steelers hoped Jonathan Dwyer would be.

    49. Giants -- Notre Dame ILB Manti Te'o

    Day One Addition(s): LG Justin Pugh

    Te'o is good value here for the middle linebacker-needy G-Men.

    50. Bears -- USC QB Matt Barkley

    Day One Addition(s): G/T Kyle Long

    The Bears put contract-year QB Jay Cutler on notice with this pick.

    51. Redskins -- Tennessee Tech WR Da'Rick Rogers

    Day One Addition(s): None. See RG3 trade.

    Mike Shanahan could envision Rogers as his next Brandon Marshall.

    52. Patriots -- SMU DE Margus Hunt

    Day One Addition(s): None. Traded out.

    The Pats would've considered Hunt had they stayed the 29th pick.

    53. Bengals -- North Carolina RB Giovani Bernard

    Bernard adds playmaking ability to a backfield that badly needs it.

    54. Chiefs (Trade with Dolphins) -- LSU ILB Kevin Minter

    Day One Addition(s): LT Eric Fisher

    After trading Branden Albert, the Chiefs acquire a plug-and-play starter.

    55. Packers -- UCLA RB Johnathan Franklin

    Day One Addition(s): RE Datone Jones

    GM Ted Thompson can shore up running back long term with Franklin.

    56. Seahawks -- San Diego State TE Gavin Escobar

    Day One Addition(s): WR Percy Harvin

    Long and athletic, Escobar creates mismatches in the passing game.

    57. Texans -- Connecticut ILB Sio Moore

    Day One Addition(s): WR DeAndre Hopkins

    Moore could be a day-one starter next to Brian Cushing inside.

    58. Broncos -- Michigan State RB Le'Veon Bell

    Day One Addition(s): DT Sylvester Williams

    Bell can pass block, which is critical in Peyton Manning's offense.

    59. Patriots -- California WR Keenan Allen

    The receiver-needy Pats can't pass up the value of Allen at No. 59.

    60. Falcons -- Texas A&M DE Damontre Moore

    Day One Addition(s): CB Desmond Trufant

    Moore needs to get stronger, but he dominated in the SEC.

    61. ***** -- Ohio State DT Johnathan Hankins

    Hankins adds bulk and depth to San Francisco's thin defensive line.

    62. Ravens -- USC WR Robert Woods

    Day One Addition(s): SS Matt Elam

    Woods is a classic Z receiver and perfect complement to Torrey Smith.


    Third-Round Projections

    63. Chiefs -- Georgia FS Bacarri Rambo

    64. Jaguars -- Mississippi State CB Johnthan Banks

    65. Lions -- Auburn DE Corey Lemonier

    66. Raiders -- Arkansas QB Tyler Wilson

    67. Eagles -- Southern Miss LB Jamie Collins

    68. Browns -- Connecticut CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson

    69. Cardinals -- Texas DE Alex Okafor

    70. Titans -- Oregon State CB Jordan Poyer

    71. Rams -- Kent State OG Brian Winters

    72. Jets -- West Virginia WR Stedman Bailey

    73. Buccaneers -- Georgia NT John Jenkins

    74. Cowboys -- Clemson RB Andre Ellington

    75. Saints -- Missouri Southern State DT Brandon Williams

    76. Chargers -- Syracuse SS Shamarko Thomas

    77. Dolphins -- Mississippi State CB Darius Slay

    78. Bills -- Tennessee OG Dallas Thomas

    79. Steelers -- Texas A&M WR Ryan Swope

    80. Cowboys -- Fresno State S Phillip Thomas

    81. Giants -- Georgia DE Cornelius Washington

    82. Dolphins -- Wisconsin RB Montee Ball

    83. Patriots -- Oregon State WR Markus Wheaton

    84. Bengals -- Ohio State OT Reid Fragel

    85. Redskins -- LSU CB Tyrann Mathieu

    86. Colts -- Texas A&M RB Christine Michael

    87. Seahawks -- Colorado OG David Bakhtiari

    88. Packers -- Georgia Southern SS J.J. Wilcox

    89. Texans -- Florida TE Jordan Reed

    90. Broncos -- Western Kentucky DE Quanterus Smith

    91. Patriots -- Georgia CB Sanders Commings

    92. Rams -- North Carolina State S Earl Wolff

    93. ***** -- Marshall WR Aaron Dobson

    94. Ravens -- Florida ILB Jon Bostic

    95. Texans -- Williams & Mary S B.W. Webb

    96. Chiefs -- Connecticut CB Dwayne Gratz

    97. Titans -- Purdue DT Kawann Short

    Others Considered: Louisiana Tech WR Quinton Patton, SE Louisiana CB Robert Alford, Rice TE Vance McDonald, San Diego State CB Leon McFadden, Missouri WLB Zaviar Gooden, Rutgers WLB Khaseem Greene, North Carolina CB David Amerson, Arkansas RB Knile Davis.

    SS Shamarko Thomas, if he's there at 71, I think the Rams take him. He visited the team.

    Ok lets say we did not do the Austin trade. So we are at pick 16 and lets just assume we take a WR there to keep it simple. I would guess that we would have taken Hopkins then.

    Now at 46 who do we take? Based on the mock in this draft my guess would be that we would go for Lacy, Franklin, Rambo (or some other Safety) or maybe another WR?

    So that is what Austin cost us...... A RB who at least 31 other teams did not think would add something to the table (first time in a very loooong time that no RB was taken in the first round so none of the RBs can be that talented), or a safety, here you could still argue that we can find option later as the draft is deep with safeties or go for signing a FA to keep the position going until next year, or another WR but to me that might be a luxury...

    Personally I feel fine with the trade and especially if the front office feel that Pead and Richardson are equally or more talented that this years RB's. And I would take a potential star WR any day over a second round safety.

    Ok. So what would I do? Take the #2 WR on the Rams board at 16, then the BPA at #46. But that's irrelevant.

    Fishead loves Austin and feel he's worth it. Ultimately, that's all I need to (or can) know.

    But there's just a lot of talent between #46 and #71. Am I saying there's only 70 NFL quality players in this draft? No. I'm just saying it's a little gut-wrenching watching those #46-#70 spots go by.
