NFL ReMock Draft: 2nd and 3rd Rounds

2 of 2

65. Carolina Panthers-Christian Ballard, DL, Iowa

Previous picks: Cam Newton

The Panthers really need to address their defensive tackle spot and Ballard is the best player available on the board and he fills a need which makes this a home run pick.

66. Cincinnati Bengals-Allen Bailey, DT, Miami

Previous Picks: A.J. Green, Andy Dalton

Allen Bailey was considered a potential first round draft pick early in the draft process, but has dropped off quite a bit. Sitll he has good potential and could entice the Bengals as a Defensive end.

67. Denver Broncos-Bruce Carter, LB, North Carolina

Previous picks: Von Miller, Da’quan bowers, Drake Nevis

If the Broncos move Dumervil and Ayers to defensive end they’ll need a few linebackers. Bruce carter is the best player available here, and great value. He might have to sit out the first season or not getting any time to learn the defense before the season, but the Broncos are in rebuilding mode anyway so they can afford to wait for Carter to develop.

68. Buffalo Bills-Marcus Cannon, OT, TCU

Previous picks: Marcel Dareus, Brooks reed

The Bills need to address the offensive line at some point and Cannon is good value here. Gailey has said he wants to run the ball and adding a massive man like Cannon will certainley help the Bills running game.

69. Arizona Cardinals- Cris Carter, OLB, Fresno State

Previous picks: Patrick Peterson, Benjamin Ijalana

He’s not Robert Quinn or Von Miller, but Cardinals fans can settle for Cris Carter coming off the edge for them. Adding Petreson, Carter and Ijalana will have given the cardinals good value and address postions of need each round in the draft, which is a huge plus.

70. Kansas City Chiefs-Will Rackley, OL, Leigh

Previous picks: Jon Baldwin, Rodney Hudson

I didn’t want to run back to back offensive line here, but with a few extra picks and Will Rackley still on the board the Chiefs add more talent and depth to the offensive line. I’m avoiding Kenrdric Ellis, and Johnny Patrick here because of character problems, but they’d be great picks.

71. Dallas Cowboys-Dontay Moch, OLB, Nevada

Previous picks: Tyron Smith, Aaron Williams

The Cowboys would love to have a talented defensive linemen here, but with the best DL being a nose tackle they opt to add a speedy pass rusher instead.

72. New Orleans Saints-Quinton Carter, S, Oklahoma

Previous picks: Mark Ingram, Cameron Jordan

The Saints are knocking it out of the park so far in the draft and in this mock. Quinton Carter is a second round value and a great pick here. Darren Sharper is getting old and Roman Harper struggled last year with consistency. Carter will give the Saints another talented player to add to their secondary and improve their defense.

73. Houston Texans-Sam Acho, OLB, Texas

Previous picks: J.J. Watt, Stephen Paea

Talk about improving your front seven in the draft. The Texans will go from having question marks all across their front seven to having serious young talent in their defensive front seven.

74. New England Patriots-Jaiqwan Jarret, S, Temple

Previous picks: Nate Solder, Akeem Ayers, Titus Young, Mikel LeShoure

Jaiwqan Jarrett is insurance incase anything comes out of Brandon Merriweather’s indiscretions. Jarrett is also a versatile player which appeals to the Patriots.

75. Detroit Lions-Daniel Thomas, RB, Kansas State

Previous picks: Nick Fairley,  Brandon Harris

Lions stick with what is working so well for them. Best player available. Daniel Thomas is actually rated ahead of Mikel LeShoure on Rick Gosselin’s big board which means the NFL thinks highly of him and he’s a great pick here to give the Lions a guy who can tote the rock with Jahvid Best.

76. San Francisco 49ers-Greg little, WR, North Carolina

Previous picks: aldon Smith,  Colin Kapernick

Will the 49es consider character issues? I’m not sure yet. If they do they might not be able to pass up Greg Little here at this point. little is a very  nice talent and has the potential to be the third best WR in this class. A WR corps  headed by  Greg Little and Michael Crabtree is enticing.

77. Tennessee Titans-Mason Foster, LB, Washington

Previous picks: Jake Locker, Jurrel Casey

The Titans need to address their linebacker  corps and Foster is a good fit for any 43 team. He’ll play somewhere and everywhere you ask him to. Aleader and a tackling machine.

78. St. Louis Rams-John Moffit, G/C Wisconsin

Previous picks: Robert Quinn, Torrey Smith

The Rams have said they are interested in adding talent to the interior of their offensive line.  Moffitt has the potential to play either guard or center in the Natoinal Football league anad with the Rams already grabbing two good play makers they go the less sexy route of adding an interior offensive linmen here.

79. Miami Dolphins-Ricky Stanzi, QB, Iowa

Previous picks: Mike Pouncey

I think Taiwan Jones here could be enticing, but they grab Stanzi who can mold into the starter of this team.

80. Jacksonvill Jaguars-Curtis Brown, CB, Texas

Previos pick: Christian Ponder

Kept meaning to mock him before here, but my mistake is the Jaguars gain (much like Amukamara for the Giants).

81. Oakland Raiders-Jason Pinkston, OL, Pittsburgh

Previous pick: Davon House

To some Pinkston is an interior OL to others he can play outside. No matter the case he’s talented and adds talent to the Raiders offensive line.

82. San Diego Chargers-Johnny patrick, CB, Louisville

Previous picks: Liguet, Sheard, Franklin

Johnny Patrick is very talented the Chargers have shown a penchant for drafting cornerbacks early in the draft and they continue that trend with the talented, but possibly troubled Johnny Patrick.

83. New York Giants-Quan Sturdivant, LB, North Carolina

previous picks: Prince Amukamara, Stefen Wisnewiski

This draft is breaking perfectly for the Giants. Sturdivant is good value here and the Giants could also go RB here with some talented RB available.

84. Tampa Bay Buccaneers-Brandon Burton, CB, Utah

Previous picks: Adrian Clayborn, Ryan Williams

The Buccaneers address the CB position here with the potential (and reported) pending release of Aqib Talib.

85. Philadelphia Eagles-Jah Reid, T, UCF

Previous picks: Danny Watkins, Martez Wilson

A massive RT that is a little less athletic version of Gabe Carimi, who the Eagles may have been interested in the first round is tough to pass up here and they choose him with not great corenerbacks left on the board.

86. Kansas City Chiefs-Kendall Hunter, RB, Oklahoma State

Previous picks: Jon Baldwin, Rodney Hudson, Will Rackley

I didn’t plan for it to go this way, but the Cheifs are really retooling and strenghtening their run game in this mock draft. Thomas Jones is about done and the Chiefs need someone to complement the excellent Thomas Jones. last year the Cheifs won by running the ball and this year they’ll do the same.

87. Indianapolis Colts-Terrel McClain, DT, USF

previous picks: Castanzo, Taiwan Jones

McClain might not be what the Colts need because they need more of a run stuffing Defensive tackle, but he is the kind of player they like and is value is in this range (anywhere from round 2 to round 6. I’m banking on early round 4).

88. New Orleans Saints-Lance Kendricks, TE, Wisconsin

Previous picks: Cameron Jordan, Mark Ingram, Quinton Carter

A pass rushing defensive end would be ideal, but not available at this point in the third round so they go with perhaps the best player available and definitely good value here.

89. San Diego Chargers-Terrance Toliver, WR, LSU

previous picks: Liuget, Sheard, Franklin, Patrick

talented, but underperformed in college. If anyone can rectify that it’s Norv Turner’s simplifed, yet dynamic passing attack.

90. Baltimore Ravens-Kenrdic Ellis, NT, Hampton

Previous picks: Jimmy Smith, Randall Cobb

The Ravens love going best player available and Ellis could be it. Even though they drafted Terrance Cody last year having two talented NT on the roster is not a detrimnet to the success of the team.

91. Atlanta Falcons-Luke Stocker, TE, Tennessee

previous picks: Julio Jones

The Falcons love to run the ball and Stocker might be the best run blocking/pass catching  combination option at tight end in the draft

92. New England Pariots-Jerrell Powe, NT, Ole Miss

previous picks: Nate Solder, Akeem ayers, Titus Young, Mikel LeShoure, Jaiqwan Jarrett

Patriots go back to addressing the trenches after spending the last few picks on adding play maker options.

93. Chicago Bears-Ross Homan, LB, Ohio State

previous picks: Gabe Carimi, Justin Houston

Homan is a better fit than Akeem Dent in the Bears defensive system.

94. New York Jets-Edmund Gates, WR, Albeine Christian

Previous picks: Muhammad Wilkerson, Temple

Gates is not a top 100 player to me, but he is apparently to NFL men so he’s the pick here.

95. Pittsburgh Steelers-Clint Boling, G, Gerogia

previous picks: Cameron Heyward, Marcus Gilchrist

If the Steelers were interested in Mike Pouncey that indicates that they were interested in obtaining interior offensive line help. At this poin Clint Boling is the best of the interior offensive linemen.

96. Green Bay Packers-Tandon Doss, WR, Indiana

previous picks: Derek Sherrod,  Ras I Dowling

A borderline second round pick this is good value here. Considering Drivers age adding another WR makes sense. Even though Doss has been a bit injury prone in college doesn’t mean he’ll be injured a lot in the N.F.L.

97. Carolina Panthers-Marcus Gilbert, T, Florida

Previous picks: Cam Newton, Chrisitan Ballard

Best player available that’s not a running back goes to the Panthers here.
