The holidays are such a special time in the NFL, especially in the AFC North. There is snow on the field, playoffs on the horizon, and hard-nosed football. With all that excitement, it's easy to forget the biggest gift of all: the draft. Yes, it's that time for the NFL Mocks Midseason mock draft for the winter wonderland that is AFC North, Day 2.
The Pittsburgh Steelers won the first round; They made a bold move by dropping back one spot, adding a second-round pick, and getting their QB of the future in JJ McCarthy. They are making even more noise on day two when they traded a 4th-round pick and Kenny Pickett to the Minnesota Vikings for the 20th pick in the second round. On Day 2, the Steelers will have the 47th, 51st, 67th, and 78th picks to add the talent around McCarthy.
The Cincinnati Bengals took Amarius Mims of Georgia and will have the 55th and 86th picks on Day 2. Will they get the Tee Higgens replacement they will need?
The Cleveland Browns have some draft picks today, selecting 57 and 90. Is it time to get a backup for Deshaun Watson?
The Ravens added the other Ohio State receiver, Emeka Egbuka and will be drafting at 64 and 95 on Day 2. Stocking up on weapons for Lamar Jackson is the front office focus in 2024, and they got the receiver. A durable and capable running back should be on the draft list.
Steelers are up at No. 47, so buckle up; it's mock draft day.
