March 4th Two-Round Mock Draft
 
Woke up in the middle of the night so I decided to try my hand at a two-round mock draft for a change. Let me know what you think, or if I can clarify my reasoning for anything! The second round feels a little bit difficult to project this year, there seem to be a lot of prospects expected to go in that range who I think would be massive reaches.

First thing I noticed: it's March 3rd.

Second, meh KC pick. WR is pretty standard these days though.

wicket 03-03-2014 12:00 PM

id prefer donte moncrief over morgan moses and im not the fan of fuller that most people are but i cant fault you for the saints picks, they make a lot of sense

RaiderNation 03-03-2014 12:12 PM

Not a bad Raiders draft I'd hope we would try and trade up for Carr.

Phins827 03-03-2014 12:13 PM

Different pick for Miami. I'm intrigued

Don Vito 03-03-2014 12:33 PM

I'd say that is a pretty realistic Pats mock.

Just a side note since I always check where Moncrief ends up, giving Cam both Moncrief and Brandin Cooks would be pretty sweet.

SickwithIt1010 03-03-2014 12:36 PM

Not too bad, I would actually be tempted to take Ward in the first.

PoopSandwich 03-03-2014 12:52 PM

Everyone is mocking Carr to us now.

MikeTheDudeV2 03-03-2014 01:03 PM

I don't think two WRs is the way to go for Carolina. Maybe one. But we have other needs at OT and CB that need to be addressed pretty early.

Poopy,

Make it stahp

You think shi'a-fila falls that far?

princefielder28 03-03-2014 01:46 PM

Where do you see Crichton fitting the Packers defense?

MidwestJimmy 03-03-2014 02:09 PM

The Dolphins are already overloaded with defensive ends (Barr was an edge rusher in Los Angeles). Also, what am I missing with Dontae Johnson? I never heard of him (and my draft board goes to 200). But this is generallly a good mock.

ArkyRamsFan 03-03-2014 02:14 PM

Matthew Jones,

I'm loving it for the Rams but I have a real hard time believing Hageman will drop all the way to the middle of the 2nd round.

Stranger things, I guess have happened though!!

ChicagoBearsVet23 03-03-2014 03:06 PM

Great Bears Draft

Jakey 03-03-2014 04:06 PM

SOLID Steelers draft!

The Steelers would still need to land a big(er) WR in the next few rounds. Who do you think they would target?

K Train 03-03-2014 05:33 PM

No way the steelers would pass on moncrief in the second round. Honestly Gilbert and Moncrief would be perfection

superfly69 03-03-2014 05:39 PM

Dallas won't take a LB in round 1. That pick will be a DT or DE.

Babylon 03-03-2014 05:47 PM

There are still Cyrus Kuondijo fans out there? Interesting.

Brown Leader 03-03-2014 07:26 PM

Dan Jeremiah would love this Browns draft. I think Breeland is completely overrated. He reminds me of Shareece Wright and I wouldn't take him any earlier than he went.

Watkins is so tempting but then I remember he'd be the #2 WR and 3rd to 4th option on offense and likely be prompted to return kicks. I guess it depends how high they are on Hoyer. If they think he's an NFL starter then absolutely, load up on weapons, if not, they better take a QB early.

I think given how Reid valued DeSean Jackson, someone like Beckham would make sense there. Could also see Ra'Shede Hageman, my usual pick.

I'm a huge Fuller fan, agree on Moses not being a great value but think he makes sense there.

I could imagine that, but I think Verrett looks better on tape. Probably the best CB in the draft just in terms of coverage skills.

I was thinking about how the Panthers doubled down on defensive tackle last year and turned a weakness into a strength, like the value there more than OT/CB.

Probably not, but he's a bum if you ask me. Really athletic, but just bungled way too many blocks for my liking.

I think he's athletic enough to stand up. Usually there are concerns about whether or not some pass rushers can stand up in a 3-4, but those are typically unfounded; look at Nick Perry, Ryan Kerrigan, Tamba Hali, Brandon Graham, etc. A good rusher is a good rusher. Last year we saw that with Matthews/Perry hurt, the Packers were forced to rely on guys like Mike Neal too much, so I think they should consider some additional rushers, especially with the value being solid there.

Barr is a rusher, but I was thinking about how the Dolphins tried to add Philip Wheeler for that rush linebacker role and think Barr would make sense for that reason. I don't see him as a defensive end regardless of scheme, 3-4 ROLB or 4-3 SLB.

Johnson is a much better prospect than David Amerson was last year. More physical, much better tackler, more natural coverage skills. I think he could play CB or FS. Had him as a 2nd-3rd before the Combine, then he did a great job there as well.

Hageman has a ton of concerns regarding consistency/motor, leverage, character, intelligence, etc. that make me feel like he's one of the most likely prospects to bust. Still worth looking into that late in the draft though.

I see Seferian-Jenkins as much more of a receiving threat than a blocker, despite his size/average speed. I think someone like Martavis Bryant would make sense if available.

The only value at either of those positions which I think would be comparable would be Louis Nix, but I'm not sure that's the type of defense he'd fit best in. As you can see, I'm not as high on guys like Jernigan and Ealy as most. This is a deep year for free-agent defensive linemen as well.

I'm not too worried about anything he did at the Combine, if you can hold down the blindside in the SEC for a couple years, relegating DJ Fluker to the right side, you should be a possible first or second-day pick. Not sure how the medical will affect his stock, but he's a massive, aggressive guy who can mirror, anchor, punch. A little bit sloppy at times, but relatively new to tackle. There also aren't very many good second-day tackle candidates in this class, so that should limit his slide a bit.

KCJ58 03-03-2014 09:38 PM

2nd round pick is good. I don't like the 1st two picks
