Curt Popejoy's 2 Round Mock Draft - 3/17/2010

Written by Curt Popejoy on 03/17/2010

2.33 St Louis Rams Brandon Ghee CB Wake Forest
The Rams secondary is a grease fire, and adding a player like Ghee to can play CB or safety would really help.
Full Profile >>

2.34 Detroit Lions Ryan Mathews RB Fresno State
I am not convinced that even a 100% Kevin Smith can be a no.1 back in this league. Matthews is an underrated player and would give the Lions a true feature back.
Full Profile >>

2.35 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Everson Griffen DE USC
The re-building of the Bucs defense continues with Griffen. He's got a ton of potential and is super athletic as an edge rusher and can stick his foot in the ground and stop the run.
Full Profile >>

2.36 Kansas City Chiefs Damian Williams WR USC
The Chiefs wide receiving group is less than exciting. Williams is the best route runner in the draft and would be able to learn from Chris Chambers in that offense.
Full Profile >>

2.37 Washington Redskins Terrence Cody DT Alabama
A switch to the 3-4 means you have to have a big fat boy for the middle and Cody is the fattest fat boy in the draft.
Full Profile >>

2.38 Cleveland Browns Jerry Hughes DE Texas Christian
The Browns traded their best edge rusher for a third round pick, so it makes sense to replace him with a 2nd round pick. NO, that doesn't make sense but it's Cleveland.
Full Profile >>

2.39 Oakland Raiders Sergio Kindle OLB Texas
The Raiders traded for Kamerion Wimbley, but with Kindle you get another guy who can play end or OLB, allowing the Raiders D a lot of flexibility to move guys around.
Full Profile >>

2.40 Seattle Seahawks Nate Allen S South Florida
The Seahawks get McCoy in the first passing on Eric Berry so they must address safety here, and Allen is a nice all around player.
Full Profile >>

2.41 Buffalo Bills Arrelious Benn WR Illinois
I am not as sold on Benn as most, but with no TO, getting another weapon in the passing game is a must.
Full Profile >>

2.42 Tampa Bay Buccaneers (from Chicago) Demaryius Thomas WR Georgia Tech
The Bucs offense needs an upgrade and a big target for Josh Freeman. Thomas is raw, but he has all the physical tools you want, and great size.
Full Profile >>

2.43 Miami Dolphins Darrell Stuckey S Kansas
Stuckey has had a great offseason capping of a solid career and his triangle numbers are really opened team's eyes to what he can do.
Full Profile >>

2.44 New England Patriots (from Jacksonville) Ricky Sapp OLB Clemson
The Patriots defense has been called one of the slowest in the league and that starts with the pass rush. Sapp has a ton of upside and should be able to add some athleticism to the unit.
Full Profile >>

2.45 Denver Broncos J.D. Walton C Baylor
The Broncos have a big hole at center with the loss of Casey Wiegman, and Walton is the best pure C prospect in the draft.
Full Profile >>

2.46 New York Giants Navorro Bowman OLB Penn State
The re-build of the beat up Giants defense continues with the explosive Bowman. He will slip a little because his measureables aren't flashy, but there's no doubt he can play.
Full Profile >>

2.47 New England Patriots (from Tennessee) Brandon LaFell WR LSU
With Randy Moss another year old, and Wes Welker's future in jeopardy, adding a young talented playmaker in passing game is a must.
Full Profile >>

2.48 Carolina Panthers Marshwan Gilyard WR Cincinnati
The Panthers only have 1 pick in the first two rounds, so getting an impact player is a must, and with a new starting QB, giving them a weapon would certainly be considered a need. Gilyard will upgrade the wide outs as well as the return game.
Full Profile >>

2.49 San Francisco 49ers Colt McCoy QB Texas
No way would I make this pick, but after letting Shaun Hill go, the Niners have to be thinking about bringing in some competition for Alex Smith.
Full Profile >>

2.50 Kansas City Chiefs (from Atlanta) Carlos Dunlap DE Florida
Dunlap seems to be slimming down and streamlining his game, and I can see Crennel viewing Dunlap as a hybrid DE/LB type player opposite Tamba Hali.
Full Profile >>

2.51 Houston Texans Donovan Warren CB Michigan
Warren slips here some, not because of his talent, but because of the talent at CB in this draft. The Texans lose Dunta Robinson, but get a better coverage player here.
Full Profile >>

2.52 Pittsburgh Steelers Rodger Saffold OT Indiana
The Steelers offensive line is always a little up in the air and underachieve. Saffold can play tackle or guard and should provide quality depth and eventually start.
Full Profile >>

2.53 New England Patriots Rob Gronkowski TE Arizona
Replacing Ben Watson here with a player who's bigger faster stronger and more athletic. Huge upgrade here especially in the passing game.
Full Profile >>

2.54 Cincinnati Bengals Lamarr Houston DT Texas
The Bengals team is really pretty solid, but they play against some really physical offenses, so a guy like Houston who can work into the defensive line rotation would be a nice addition.
Full Profile >>

2.55 Philadelphia Eagles Morgan Burnett S Georgia Tech
The youth movement on defense continues as the Eagles add a young athletic player to put in the defensive secondary.
Full Profile >>

2.56 Green Bay Packers Devin McCourty CB Rutgers
Probably the only position the Packers have more questions than the offensive line is in the secondary so a guy like McCourty with great speed and size is a nice pick here.
Full Profile >>

2.57 Baltimore Ravens Patrick Robinson CB Florida State
Another team with questions in their back 4. Robinson is an underrated player who can play in any scheme and has a lot of upside.
Full Profile >>

2.58 Arizona Cardinals Jared Veldheer OT Hillsdale
You hate to think the Cardinals wasted a first round pick on Levi Brown but he hasn't played close to what they had hoped. Veldheer is a great prospect with a lot of upside and a nice value pick here.
Full Profile >>

2.59 Dallas Cowboys Brandon Spikes ILB Florida
Spikes has Cowboy written all over him. Great size and power and would be a great fit in that 3-4 defense.
Full Profile >>

2.60 San Diego Chargers Cam Thomas DT North Carolina
The Chargers let Jamal Williams go, so getting his replacement has to be a top priority and Thomas is a hot name as a NT prospect.
Full Profile >>

2.61 New York Jets Alex Carrington DE Arkansas State
Rex Ryan likes guys who can move around in his defense and Carrington looks to be able to play all along the line in the 3-4.
Full Profile >>

2.62 Minnesota Vikings Joe McKnight RB USC
The Vikes weren't able to snag LT, but getting someone to spell Adrian Peterson is still a must, and McKnight has underrated skills and speed and should be able to play right away.
Full Profile >>

2.63 Indianapolis Colts Chris Cook CB Virginia
The Colts have been dumping defensive backs like nobody's business so adding some back seems to make sense. Cook has the size to play safety and the skills to play corner so he'll fit in nicely.
Full Profile >>

2.64 New Orleans Saints Geno Atkins DT Georgia
This is a real luxury pick for the Saints to add some depth to the defensive interior with a guy who's capped off a nice career with a really strong offseaon.
Full Profile >>
