2016 NFL mock draft second round: Jaguars pick Kamalei Correa

New, comments

Yes, it's hard to correctly predict how the any round of the draft will turn out, but I'm here to take a try on mocking the second round after a crazy first round.

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars got the man they so desperately wanted in Jalen Ramsey last night with the fifth overall pick. Now that the team has their shutdown corner and a new face of the defense, who makes sense for the Jaguars in the second round?

After a pretty hectic first round, I'm putting together a mock draft strictly on the second round -- 32 picks, no trades, and a shout into the void that it will turn out to be somewhat accurate. As I am more of a Jaguars expert than any other team, I can't give the best feedback on each pick, but I will provide analysis for the Jaguars pick as well as any surprise pick.

These picks may not be how I want the second round to go, but I think it's realistic based off of team needs. Let's get crackin':

32. Cleveland Browns select Noah Spence, DE/OLB, Eastern Kentucky: Spence has steered clear of drugs and partying since his days at Ohio State ended, and will contribute to the pass rush from day one in Cleveland on a defense that needs about as much help as possible.

33. Tennessee Titans select Vonn Bell, SS, Michigan State

34. Dallas Cowboys select A'Shawn Robinson, DT, Alabama

35. San Diego Chargers select Cody Whitehair, OG, Kansas State

36. Baltimore Ravens select Kevin Dodd, DE, Clemson

37. Kansas City Chiefs select Myles Jack, LB, UCLA: Ouch, the pick right before the Jaguars. The Chiefs jump on Jack, who was projected to be selected in the top-five before his knee injury and all of the long-term skepticism. After addressing the defensive and offensive line in the first round, Kansas City takes a shot on Jack.

38. Jacksonville Jaguars select Kamalei Correa, DE/OLB, Boise State: Finally, Dave Caldwell adds a pass rusher to help build a rotation at the LEO position. In three seasons, Correa put together a total of 19 sacks, as well as played well in coverage.

39. Tampa Bay Buccaneers select Johnathan Bullard, DE, Florida

40. New York Giants select Reggie Ragland, MLB, Alabama

41. Chicago Bears select Mackensie Alexander, CB, Clemson

42. Miami Dolphins select Kendall Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech

43. Tennessee Titans select Michael Thomas, WR, Ohio State

44. Oakland Raiders select Jason Spriggs, OT, Indiana

45. Tennessee Titans select Emmanuel Ogbah, DE, Oklahoma State

46. Detroit Lions select Jarran Reed, DT, Alabama

47. New Orleans Saints select Tyler Boyd, WR, Pittsburgh

48. Indianapolis Colts select Su'a Cravens, OLB/SS, Southern California

49. Buffalo Bills select Chris Jones, DT, Mississippi State

50. Atlanta Falcons select Hunter Henry, TE, Arkansas

51. New York Jets select Le'Raven Clark, OT, Texas Tech

52. Houston Texans select Christian Westerman, OG, Arizona State

53. Washington Redskins select Andrew Billings, DT, Baylor

54. Minnesota Vikings select Xavien Howard, CB, Baylor

55. Cincinnati Bengals select Braxton Miller, WR, Ohio State: Perfect fit for Miller, who went from quarterback to wide receiver in one season at OSU and improved his stock well enough to be a day two prospect. Solid No. 2 receiver across from A.J. Green.

56. Seattle Seahawks select Austin Johnson, DT, Penn State

57. Green Bay Packers select Austin Hooper, TE, Stanford

58. Pittsburgh Steelers select Darian Thompson, FS/SS, Boise State

59. Kansas City Chiefs select Joshua Perry, OLB, Ohio State

60. New England Patriots select Derrick Henry, RB, Alabama: No way Derrick Henry slips out of the second round, and it'd be pretty cool to see the Jacksonville native step in and start for a Super Bowl caliber team.

61. New England Patriots select Hassan Ridgeway, DT, Texas

62. Carolina Panthers select Jalen Mills, CB/S, Louisiana State

63. Denver Broncos select Joe Dahl, OG, Washington State

Like I said before, the majority of these picks are probably wrong. I'm no genius and I don't know enough about other team's needs, but based off of my knowledge I see the second round turning out like this tonight. Check back after the second round and see if this was anywhere close!
