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!
