2017 NFL Mock Draft Round 2
Selections 49-64

Consensus Mock Draft #3 | January 19, 2017 2:30 AM EST

49 Washington
Gareon Conley
    Ohio St
    CB
    Reach/Value:     +7
Height:
6'0"
Weight:
195
Alternate Pick #1
Carlos Watkins
Alternate Pick #2
Jourdan Lewis

The Redskins went into 2016 believing they may have one of the top CB tandems in the league between Josh Norman and Bashaud Breeland. The latter had a very, very rough year, as he was benched in-game on two occasions and eventually was relegated to slot corner. Reportedly, Bree felt disrespected when the organization assumed Norman would be the #1 corner upon his arrival in DC. He lost his focus and eventually his confidence as the chip on his shoulder led to more pouting than determination from the third-year CB. Coaches have full faith that Bree will recover in 2017, but adding young talent...and leadership...to a reportedly-broken DB room is paramount. Gareon Conley possesses both, and with the success of OU DBs in recent drafts, grabbing him in the second could prove to be a steal.


50 Tampa Bay
Adam Bisnowaty
    Pittsburgh
    OT
    Reach/Value:     -16
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
300
Alternate Pick #1
Budda Baker
Alternate Pick #2
Dion Dawkins

Looking at the Bucs' Free Agent roster, it's evident that the team could go in several directions with this pick. Both starting Safeties are gone; that would be Chris Conte and Bradley McDougald. Ryan Smith was drafted last year (RD4) to prepre for this day, but the stock behind Smith resembles a Venezuelan supermarket. Plus it's a great year for drafting Safeties! Budda Baker and Justin Evans and still available in this DRAFTSIM.

OL and DE are also possibilities. This week, we dial up Adam Bisnowaty, the OT from Pitt. He's showing as a reach here, but Offensive Linemen most always are. What's attractive about Biz is his flexibility. In the event of injury, he can be called on to play inside at Guard or (most likely) Right Tackle. For more, here's a Scouting Report on Bisnowaty.


51 Denver
Bucky Hodges
    Virginia Tech
    TE
    Reach/Value:     +1
Height:
6'7"
Weight:
245
Alternate Pick #1
Dede Westbrook
Alternate Pick #2
Evan Engram

I mentioned earlier with the Broncos' first-round commentary that this offense needed an identity. While I don't think they will just turn the keys over to Paxton Lynch, I do have a feeling that this offense will be tooled to suit his strengths. Similar to Phillip Rivers, Lynch has the arm strength to make any throw on the field. Mike McCoy would do well to install the same offense he had in San Diego that consistently threatened to make big plays. With that being the case, they need guys that can stretch the field. Hodges may be one of the biggest projects in this draft, but he has the ability to make big plays down the field. It will take patience and coaching, but he has the kind of ceiling that Antonio Gates and Jimmy Graham had at this stage in their careers. ~Austin Smith


52 Cleveland
Jourdan Lewis
    Michigan
    CB
    Reach/Value:     +8
Height:
5'10"
Weight:
178
Alternate Pick #1
Samaje Perine
Alternate Pick #2
Ryan Glasgow

This is the third pick I have had Cleveland improving their pass defense thus far, but when opposing quarterbacks have the second highest QB rating in the league against you, wholesale changes are necessary. Lewis is one of the best pure-cover guys in this draft, and if there is any question about his ability, look no further than the play he made at the end of the Wisconsin game. Offensive Line help would be something many would hope to acquire at some point in these first four picks, but Free Agency could prove to be the best avenue for that. ~Austin Smith


53 Detroit
Cordrea Tankersley
    Clemson
    CB
    Reach/Value:     -11
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
195
Alternate Pick #1
Haason Reddick
Alternate Pick #2
Quincy Wilson

Yes, the need to replenish the depleted LB Corps is acute, and screams like a toddler at oh-dark-thirty for immediate attention. However, when a prospect like CB Cordrea Tankersley pops up on the DRAFTSIM, you grab him. What makes Tankersley so desirable is his amazing versatility. In Clemson's defensive scheme, he was matched up against the opponents' top WRs, regardless of where they lined up. This is a big plus in Detroit's preferred 1CB/2CB system, where Darius Slay is the 1CB. In a LCB/RCB system, Detroit can deploy Slay, a more-natural lefty, at LCB, while Tankersley patrols the right perimeter at RCB. Tankersley is just too intriguing to pass on.


54 Miami
Raekwon McMillan
    Ohio State
    ILB
    Reach/Value:     -8
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
240
Alternate Pick #1
Dawuane Smoot
Alternate Pick #2
Pat Elflein

While drafting players from the same position in back-to-back rounds is not unheard of, it is very unlikely that the Dolphins will be taking a linebacker in the first and second rounds of the 2017 Draft. One scenario that may defy my prediction is if the Dolphins draft a top OLB talent in RD1 and Raekwon McMillan slides all the way down to the Dolphins late in RD2. McMillan has first round talent and would be a steal for the Dolphins who are in the market for a guy that can play either ILB or OLB.


55 NY Giants
Dawuane Smoot
    Illinois
    EDGE
    Reach/Value:     +8
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
249
Alternate Pick #1
Evan Engram
Alternate Pick #2
Jordan Leggett

NFC East Comeback Player of the Year Jason Pierre-Paul proved to be a force before injury forced him out of the final 4 games. A year after a fireworks accident severely injured his hand, he tallied 53 combined tackles, eight passes defensed, seven sacks, and three forced fumbles. Coming off a one-year contract, he proved deserving of a big payday in 2017. That payday, unfortunately, will come from another team. The Giants already have over $120 million invested in their D-Line in Olivier Vernon ($85M) and Damon Harrison ($46.25M). Expect the G-men's Free Agency dollars to go to upgrade performers on the offensive side of the ball.

Enter Dawuane Smoot to fill the void. Smoot is an every-down EDGE rusher with great run-stopping ability and pass-rushing talent. At Illinois, he compiled career totals of 136 tackles with 38.5 for a loss and 15.5 sacks.


56 Oakland
Carlos Watkins
    Clemson
    DL3T
    Reach/Value:     +13
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
300
Alternate Pick #1
Samaje Perine
Alternate Pick #2
Amara Darboh

Carlos Watkins is a beast with great upper-body strength to control the line of scrimmage. He is still in the process of development. However, if coached up properly he be HUGE asset to a run defense that finished 22nd in the league in 2016. He needs to do a better job keeping low, using his leverage to fire off the ball and deliver first blow to the o-line. If he can learn how to properly throw his weight around, he will be special.





57 Houston
D'Onta Foreman
    Texas
    RBF
    Reach/Value:     -10
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
249
Alternate Pick #1
Ryan Glasgow
Alternate Pick #2
Budda Baker

The Texans ended the season with the second-worst red-zone offense in the league. Houston scored a total of 23 TDs all season, with only 8 rushing TDs. Lamar Miller is a talented player, but he won't be bulldozing LBs anytime soon. My boy Blue (Alfred) is serviceable, but it's time for an upgrade. With uncertainty at QB, the RB position becomes even more pivotal. Championship teams impose their will by running the ball near the goal line as the aggressor. Houston needs a bully in the backfield and D'Onta Foreman is a 249-lb baller that runs through people. D'Onta makes a great thunder to Miller's lightning. Like Foreman, David Njoku is another versatile weapon that would look good as Texan; landing both would do wonders for Houston's red-zone efficiency. ~CME, Texans Analyst


58 Seattle
Amara Darboh
    Michigan
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     -2
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
215
Alternate Pick #1
Travis Rudolph
Alternate Pick #2
Jaleel Johnson

Seattle struggled on offense this year. Injury played its part, but even without them, the Seahawks couldn't extend drives. Despite their limitations, it would appear that the offensive line will be given every chance to succeed again next season, considering that only Justin Britt is due a new contract. A likely upgrade in the draft will come at WR after Jermaine Kearse's awful season. Kearse was targeted 89 times in 2016. He only caught 41 passes for 510 yards and 1 TD - only 24 of those catches were for first downs. If Kearse is cut after June 1st, then Seattle could save $2.2 million in cap space, if cut in the 2018 off-season Seattle could open up $5 million on the books. The writing is on the wall for the former Husky. Amara Darboh in his Senior season recorded 57 catches, 862 yards, and 7 TDs. Averaging 15.1 ypc is excellent and would make him fit in well with Seattle's big-play focus on offense. ~ @JefferyMChapman, Seahawks Analyst


59 Kansas City
Davis Webb
    California
    QB
    Reach/Value:     -20
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
227
Alternate Pick #1
Pat Elflein
Alternate Pick #2
Dorian Johnson

Prior to the season, Todd McShay predicted that four to five QBs could go in RD1 of the 2017 draft. In November, I predicted the run on QBs to happen in RD2. There are several teams in dire need to improve at backup QB, as well as teams in need of starters.

Sadly, Mahomes and Kizer are now off the board. KC grabs Davis Webb in this mock. Webb is a big QB (6'5"/230 pds) who has a TD-INT ratio of 22-7; plus, has thrown for at least 300 yards in all but one game. Here is how he compares with the last year's top pick overall. If he excels in the (Jan. 28) Senior Bowl, he, too, may be off the board. KC could have ammo to trade up once compensatory picks are confirmed.


60 Dallas
Carl Lawson
    Auburn
    EDGE
    Reach/Value:     -28
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
257
Alternate Pick #1
Travis Rudolph
Alternate Pick #2
Isaiah Ford

After two years of frustrating injuries following an impressive Freshman season, Carl Lawson was finally healthy in 2016. Playing in all 12 games, he produced 30 tackles, 14 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks, and a forced fumble. DC Rod Marinelli is licking his chops to add this Tiger to his Rush Men! A true technician, he sets up tackles with different pass-rush moves, and can convert speed to power . . . his strong hands and quick feet enable him to play the run equally well. True value in RD2; Da 'Boys have addressed their Top 2 Priorities!


61 Pittsburgh
Samaje Perine
    Oklahoma
    RBF
    Reach/Value:     +5
Height:
5'10"
Weight:
234
Alternate Pick #1
Jaleel Johnson
Alternate Pick #2
Pat Elflein

The Steelers have a special talent in Le'Veon Bell. He's a supremely conditioned athlete with an uncanny ability to set up blocks and burst through gaps just as they open. He's also due to enter Free Agency as soon as he's done breaking franchise rushing records. After his recent appeal this past summer, he's still on strike 1 of the substance-abuse policy, meaning a following violation would only be four games. Bell's talent clearly commands a top salary, but the Steelers will be cagey about signing bonuses and guaranteed money for a player who could miss significant time. They should look to add quality depth from this excellent RB class in case they're unable to do more than a franchise tag. Perine is a solidly-built downhill runner, comparable to Michael Turner. He could be a good counterpoint to grind out games and eat clock behind a steadily-improving O-Line.


62 Green Bay
Quincy Wilson
    Florida
    CB
    Reach/Value:     -12
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
213
Alternate Pick #1
Tre'Davious White
Alternate Pick #2
Cameron Sutton

If there's one thing the Packers could use, it's a cornerback that can actually stay on the playing field. Between Sam Shields, Damarius Randall and Quinten Rollins, the trio have missed two more games (28) than they have played in. Quincy Wilson was tops among the Gators' defensive corps last season with 735 snaps, while recording 3 INTs, six pass breakups, and 33 total tackles. Wilson has a good combination of length and speed, but needs some work on technique. Some scouts have pegged him as a posible CB/S hybrid but his so-so tackling skills would need to improve to fill that role. All in all, Wiilson has many of the attributes scouts look for in a CB prospect and should develop into a starting-caliber player.


63 Atlanta
Jaleel Johnson
    Iowa
    DL1T
    Reach/Value:     +15
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
311
Alternate Pick #1
Pat Elflein
Alternate Pick #2
Jarron Jones

Johnson is an intriguing pick here for the Falcons. Despite his ample size, he's more of a penetrating pass-rushing DT than a wide-load run stopper. He was a First-Team Big-10 player this year with 7.5 sacks and 10 TFL. In some ways, Johnson profiles very similarly to Grady Jarrett. He can play either the 1- or 3-technique, he gets in the backfield and he makes tackles. Most impressively, he has a very good motor for a player his size. The Falcons like to rotate front seven players frequently. Adding a similar player to Jarrett, and either replacing him on passing downs or playing alongside him, would constitute an upgrade over the current crop of players on the inside of the defensive line. Johnson can collapse the pocket, but does he have enough sand in his trousers against the run?


64 New England
Pat Elflein
    Ohio St
    OG
    Reach/Value:     +12
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
300
Alternate Pick #1
Caroll Phillips
Alternate Pick #2
Daeshon Hall

While the Patriots' offensive line has been a pleasant surprise in 2016, the addition of a tackle or guard will help shore up a unit that has seen too much turnover the past two seasons. Moving toward next season, the only certainties are that Nate Solder will be the starting LT and Marcus Cannon will start at RT or OG. The three remaining spots are up for grabs, especially after OC David Andrews got beaten like a drum by Whitney Mercilus and the Texans on Saturday night. Maybe Andrews should stick to sideline reporting like his sister (well not really but...bazinga!)? Thuney well at LG throughout the season, and Mason was no slouch at RG, but a new starter like Pat Efllein at one of the Guard spots (or at RT to allow Marcus Cannon to slide back inside), would greatly Tommy B's ageless, yet aging, body.
