Round Two 2014 NFL Mock Draft

Updated: April 14th

33) TRADE! Dallas Cowboys - Calvin Pryor (Safety Louisville)
If our projected scenario plays out and Johnny Manziel starts to fall on draft day I'd think it would be a no brainer for a team like Dallas to trade down. They could get a second and third rounder this year, plus a first rounder a next year and still get a guy like Calvin Pryor who they might have even been considering at 16. Plus Houston get's their denim bulge duo in Clowney and Manziel. Win win!!!
34) Washington Redskins - Stephon Tuitt (DE Notre Dame)
Washington was a disaster in all phases last year. While RG3 and the offense got all the attention the 'Skins defense was a complete train wreck, most notably on the defensive line. Stephon Tuitt is experienced in the 3-4 and would fit nicely as a five technique defensive end for the 'Skins.
35) Cleveland Browns - Xavier Su'a-Filo (OG UCLA)
With three picks in the top 35 the Browns could quickly turn their fortunes around and replenish their talent pool. Both guard spots in Cleveland could be upgraded and Xavier Su'a-Filo is currently one of the fastest rising prospects, though we happen to think he's pretty overrated.
36) Oakland Raiders - Ryan Shazier (OLB Ohio State)
Both the middle and weakside linebacker spots need to be addressed because Nick Roach and Kevin Burnett aren't getting the job done. Ryan Shazier makes perfect sense because he could play either middle or weakside for Oakland and provide them with a playmaking difference maker on defense.
37) Atlanta Falcons - Lamarcus Joyner (CB/S Florida State)
Atlanta cut starting safety Thomas Decoud and have no depth at corner behind two second year corners Robert Alford and Desmond Trufant. Whether at safety or corner, Joyner is a proven playmaker who can create turnovers no matter where he's played.
38) Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Jace Amaro (TE Texas Tech)

Timothy Wright showed some promise for the Bucs last year, but he can't be considered good enough to consider passing on a talent like Jace Amaro. With a receiver's skill set and the body of a power forward Amaro gives the Bucs a matchup nightmare to throw at defenses.

39) Jacksonville Jaguars - Jimmy Garoppolo (QB Eastern Illinois)
Despite their desperate need at quarterback we have the Jaguars selecting Sammy Watkins with the third overall pick. A big reason for that is the fact that they can come back in the second round and get a stud like Jimmy Garoppolo. After a record setting career and a highly impressive pre-draft campaign the hype machine is in full affect for Garoppolo
40) Minnesota Vikings - Chris Borland (ILB Wisconsin)
Ever since E.J Henderson went down (which was a while ago) the Vikings have had a gaping hole at inside linebacker and it has killed them. Chris Borland doesn't have the prototypical measureables, but he is an absolute animal who just flat-out makes plays.
41) Buffalo Bills - Cody Latimer (WR Indiana)
For Buffalo, the 2014 NFL Draft could be largely focused on surrounding E.J Manuel with as many weapons as possible. No player is rising faster right now than Cody Latimer who has gone from an afterthought to a possible first round pick.
42) Tennessee Titans - Tre Mason (RB Auburn)
Chris Johnson wasn't worth his cap number and deserved to get cut, nevertheless the Titans are now left without a starting running back. Tre Mason could step right in for Tennessee and be a physical between the tackles runner with the shiftiness to make would-be tacklers whiff.
43) New York Giants - Austin Seferian-Jenkins (TE Washington)
If the season started today, the Giants tight ends would include Adrien Robinson, Daniel Fells and Larry Donnell. A.S.J would be a no brainer here as an elite talent who has all the ability to be a Pro Bowl player in the league.
44) St Louis Rams - Stanley Jean-Baptiste (CB Nebraska)
With Cortland Finnegan out of the picture the Rams are left with only Janoris Jenkins and Trumaine Johnson starting caliber cornerbacks. Stanley Jean-Baptise would give them a long cornerback who could immediately provide depth behind the still young Jenkins and Johnson.
45) Detroit Lions - Demarcus Lawrence (DE Boise State)
Detroit losing Willie Young to Chicago was an underrated subtraction for them as it leaves the Lions defensive end rotation very unproven. Demarcus "Tank" Lawrence wouldn't bring any NFL experience obviously, but he's a prototypical 4-3 D-End prospect who's been productive and still has a high ceiling.
46) Pittsburgh Steelers - Marcus Roberson (CB Florida)
Pittsburgh had only three cornerbacks play over 50 snaps for them last year, and one of them was Ike Taylor who is certainly on his last legs. It's time to get younger at the position and Marcus Roberson presents a great value here as one of the draft's best pure man-to-man coverage corners.
48) Dallas Cowboys - Gabe Jackson (OG Mississippi State)
Dallas' starting guards Mackenzy Bernadeau and Ronald Leary are both mediocre at best and if Dallas is serious about finally prioritizing their O-Line they'd be wise to select Gabe Jackson if available; the guy many feel is the best guard in the draft.
47) Baltimore Ravens - Bashaud Breeland (CB/S Clemson)
Bashaud Breeland is a very intriguing prospect who had a great season at corner for Clemson last year but many feel he would be best at safety. At either position he'd help out the Ravens a ton as they've suffered some serious attrition at both positions.
49) New York Jets - Joel Bitonio (OL Nevada)
One of the biggest reasons the Jets have fallen off over the past couple years is their offensive line play with continues to steadily decline. Joel Bitonio is flying up draft boards as teams are falling in love with his versatility and exceptional quickness. Whether at guard or tackle, he'd be a massive upgrade over what the Jets currently have.
50) Miami Dolphins - David Yankey (OL Stanford)
We have Miami taking an offensive tackle in round one, but they shouldn't stop there. David Yankey is arguably the best guard prospect in this draft and would fill one of the two spots vacated by Incognito and John Jerry.
51) Chicago Bears - Jimmie Ward (Safety Northern Illinois)
Chicago's atrocious safety play reared it's ugly head at the worst time in their 'win-and-in' finale against the Packers. Starter Major Wright from last year is gone, and Chris Conte just flat out stinks. A safety with outstanding cover skills, Jimmie Ward would be a steal for the Bears at this point.
52) Arizona Cardinals - Carlos Hyde (RB Ohio State)
Bruce Arians does not view Andre Ellington as a full-fledged starter but more of an offensive weapon and a compliment. Carlos Hyde could be the between the tackle runner with the power and strength to pair with Ellington's explosive abilities on the edges.
53) Green Bay Packers - Troy Niklas (TE Notre Dame)
With Jermichael Finley gone the Packers are left with only Andrew Quarless at the tight end position. Troy Niklas profiles as dominant blocking tight end, but the 6'6" sophomore has plenty of athletic ability to improve as a receiver and is only getting better.
54) Philadelphia Eagles - Keith McGill (CB Utah)
Few players stocks are rising faster than Keith McGill's right now. The long 6'3" corner opened a lot of eyes at the Senior Bowl, then impressed us even further by running below 4.50 at the combine. He has the ability to play corner or safety in Philly.
55) Cincinnati Bengals - Pierre Desir (CB Lindenwood)
Cincy has two big needs; one at defensive end and the other at cornerback. The cornerback class is deeper which is why taking DE Kony Ealy in round one would be the best first pick. In the second round there are a boatload of talent cornerbacks including Pierre Desir the small school ballhawk.
56) San Francisco 49ers - Jordan Matthews (WR Vanderbilt)
Depth depth and more depth. With no glaring holes on the roster and loads of draft picks the 'Niners will continue to replenish their already flourishing talent pool. How does adding the SEC's all-time leading receiver sound?
57) San Diego Chargers - Allen Robinson (WR Penn State)
Keenan Allen was a breakout star for the Bolts last year and now it's time to get him a running mate. Late in round two here they can get excellent value in Allen Robinson a big physical receiver with smooth athleticism who is ready to play immediately.
58) New Orleans Saints - Kyle Van Noy (OLB BYU)
Young up-and-comer Junior Galette hade a breakout season as a pass rusher last year but New Orleans doesn't have anybody else besides him. Kyle Van Noy is a perfect fit as a polished pass rusher who already has experience in the 3-4 defense.
59) Indianapolis Colts - Deone Bucannon (Safety Washington State)
Indy's safety position was in rough shape before they lost Antoine Bethea in free agency. Here they pick up the heavy hitting Deone Bucannon who also has excellent ball skills evidenced by his 15 career interceptions.
60) Carolina Panthers - Paul Richardson (WR Colorado)
Carolina is lost all three of their starting receivers from last year leaving Jerricho Cotchery as the teams currently best starting wideout. Though worrisome, they can be encouraged by the best wide receiver class we've seen in some time. Paul Richardson is a steal here as an explosive playmaker with elite ball skills.
61) San Francisco 49ers - E.J Gaines (CB Missouri)
I view E.J Gaines as one of the most underrated players in this year's draft. Gaines has all the size and athleticism you look for and shut down some of the best SEC receivers.
62) New England Patriots - Will Sutton (DT Arizona State)
The fact that New England went the whole season with undrafted rookie Joe Vellano and seventh round rookie Chris Jones at defensive tackle starting is yet another testament to how good the Patriots coaching staff is. I'd love to see what they could do with a talent like Will Sutton.
63) Denver Broncos - Davante Adams (WR Fresno State)
With Eric Decker gone and Wes Welker on his last legs picking up a young receiver to groom in the draft would be a wise move. Fresno State sophomore Davante Adams presents amazing value with his career 233/3,030/38 line in only two years
64) Seattle Seahawks - Donte Moncrief (WR Mississippi)
Sidney Rice and Golden Tate are gone and you can never be 100% sure about Percy Harvin's health status. The value at wide receiver is unprecidented this year and here in late one the Seahawks get a 6'2" 220 pound receiver with 4.40 speed to play outside the numbers in Donte Moncrief.
