2011 NFL Mock Re-Draft: Round Two

Last update: Friday, April 29, 2011, 3:20 PM.
This is a 2011 NFL Mock Re-Draft of Rounds 2 and 3 for Friday evening's NFL Draft coverage. With all of the trades that will go down, I don't expect to get many of these right; in fact, I'll be thrilled if I nail one or two correctly. But it's still fun to speculate where the top prospects will go on Day 2 of the 2011 NFL Draft.

Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

  1. New England Patriots: Jabaal Sheard, DE/OLB, Pittsburgh
    Knowing the Patriots, they'll probably trade this pick and acquire their third 2012 first-rounder. Bill Belichick is a genius.

    I had Akeem Ayers here Friday morning, but I'm changing this selection to Jabaal Sheard three hours prior to the second round. I'm hearing the pick might be Sheard if New England stays put.

  2. Buffalo Bills: Andy Dalton, QB, TCU
    The Bills are seemingly interested in a quarterback. Think back to the infamous Andre Reed Tweet-gate. Or the fact that Christian Ponder tweeted "Buffalo" on Wednesday. The best quarterback available is Andy Dalton, and the Bills have shown interest in him. Chan Gailey coached Dalton in the Senior Bowl.

  3. Cincinnati Bengals: Da'Quan Bowers, DE, Clemson
    The Bengals have missed out on all the West Coast quarterbacks, but that's fine; Mike Brown wants Carson Palmer back, and passing on signal-callers can be some sort of an olive branch.

    Da'Quan Bowers was once a popular projection to Cincinnati prior to the Combine. The Bengals have shown interest in him, so maybe they'll take a chance on his questionable knees.

  4. Denver Broncos: Stephen Paea, NT, Oregon State
    The idea behind drafting Von Miller No. 2 is that the Broncos can obtain a defensive tackle atop the second round. Their idea; not mine.

    In this case, Stephen Paea fills a huge need for them.

  5. Cleveland Browns: Aaron Williams, CB/FS, Texas
    The Browns weren't able to obtain Patrick Peterson, so they'll have to find a cornerback in Rounds 2-4. Joe Haden had a great rookie year, but Cleveland possesses nothing across from him.

    Aaron Williams is one of the top players available. The Browns have shown interest in him.

  6. Arizona Cardinals: Brooks Reed, DE/OLB, Arizona
    Cardinals beat writer Kent Somers, who was all over the anti-Blaine Gabbert bandwagon before anyone else, Tweeted late Thursday night, "Don't know if the Cardinals can wait another round to address pass rush."

    That's quite understandable. Joey Porter and Clark Haggans really embarrassed themselves this past year, combining for just 10 sacks and struggling in run support.

    Brooks Reed is the perfect choice here. He's a late first-round talent and Arizona has shown interest in him.

  7. Tennessee Titans: Marvin Austin, DT, North Carolina
    Nick Fairley was projected to go to the Titans for a reason. Fairley wasn't the pick, but Tennessee can grab a defensive tackle in Round 2. Marvin Austin happens to be one of the top players available.

  8. Dallas Cowboys: Rahim Moore, FS, UCLA
    New free safety Alan Ball was a pretty big liability this season. The Cowboys need to upgrade this position unless they want DeSean Jackson torching them twice every year.

    Rahim Moore is one of the top players available, and Dallas has shown interest in him.

  9. Washington Redskins: Colin Kaepernick, QB, Nevada
    Mike Shanahan will draft a quarterback. Did you see Chris Berman's reaction when the Redskins drafted Ryan Kerrigan? He looked like he was having a stroke.

    Colin Kaepernick has unlimited upside. He also possesses the mobility that Shanahan likes out of his quarterbacks.

  10. Houston Texans: Akeem Ayers, DE/OLB, UCLA
    The Texans wanted Aldon Smith, but the 49ers grabbed him at No. 7. They can obtain their rush linebacker here.

  11. Minnesota Vikings: Kyle Rudolph, TE, Notre Dame
    Teams that draft quarterbacks early usually spend their next selection on an offensive lineman or play-making weapon for that signal-caller. Think Sam Bradford-Rodger Saffold, Matthew Stafford-Brandon Pettigrew and Matt Ryan-Sam Baker.

    The Vikings are looking for a tight end, so they may grab the 2011 NFL Draft's top tight end for Christian Ponder.

  12. Detroit Lions: Ras-I Dowling, CB, Virginia
    Detroit's issues at the cornerback position are well-documented. They inexplicably passed on Prince Amukamara, so they'll have to get creative in Rounds 2 or 3.

    Ras-I Dowling is one of the top players available, and the Lions have shown interest in him.

  13. San Francisco 49ers: Randall Cobb, WR/KR, Kentucky
    The only quarterback remaining is Ryan Mallett, but I don't see him fitting Jim Harbaugh's West Coast offense.

    Randall Cobb is one of the best players available and will provide some much-needed speed that San Francisco's offense currently lacks.

  14. Denver Broncos: Benjamin Ijalana, OT/G, Villanova
    The Broncos need a new right tackle. Ryan Harris is a free agent, but he's a poor fit for John Fox's power blocking scheme.

    Ben Ijalana recently had a great Pro Day, and there was some speculation that he could sneak into the first round. Denver has shown interest in him.

  15. St. Louis Rams: Torrey Smith, WR/KR, Maryland
    St. Louis' No. 1 goal this offseason is to find a play-maker for Sam Bradford. The Rams could not get anything downfield in the ugly season finale at Seattle because of their abysmal receiving corps. Drafting someone like Torrey Smith would fix that.

    Smith has shaky hands, but is otherwise a very talented, blue-collar player who would be a great fit in St. Louis.

  16. Oakland Raiders: Stefen Wisniewski, C/G, Penn State
    As Greg Cox wrote in his 2011 NFL Mock Draft, Stefen Wisniewski makes a ton of sense for the Raiders. His uncle Steve played 13 seasons for Al Davis, qualifying for the Pro Bowl eight times. Steve was recently hired as an assistant coach.

  17. Washington Redskins: Leonard Hankerson, WR, Miami
    A weapon for Colin Kaepernick. The Redskins can't go into the 2011 season with Anthony Armstrong as their top receiver.

  18. San Diego Chargers: Brandon Harris, CB, Miami
    Cornerback isn't San Diego's greatest need, but the team needs depth at the position. Plus, Brandon Harris is one of the top players available. The Chargers have shown interest in him.

  19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Lance Kendricks, TE, Wisconsin
    The Buccaneers are absolutely in love with Lance Kendricks. They won't think twice about taking him in the third round, and they may even consider him in Round 2. They're concerned with Kellen Winslow Jr.'s blocking and durability.

  20. New York Giants: Mikel Leshoure, RB, Illinois
    The Giants love taking the best player on their board, and that could be Mikel Leshoure in this scenario.

    Brandon Jacobs' days in New York are numbered, and the coaching staff is not confident in Ahmad Bradshaw's ability to stay healthy for a whole season.

  21. Indianapolis Colts: Rodney Hudson, G/C, Florida State
    Another offensive line upgrade for the Colts, whose No. 1 priority this offseason is to improve Peyton Manning's pass protection.

  22. Philadelphia Eagles: Jaiquawn Jarrett, S, Temple
    It doesn't appear as though free agent Quintin Mikell will be back with the Eagles next year. If Mikell signs elsewhere, the Eagles will need a new strong safety because Kurt Coleman should not be a starter.

    I know I mocked Jaiquawn Jarrett to the Eagles in the third round of a previous update, but I'm getting the sense that he could be the second safety off the board on Friday. The Eagles have shown a ton of interest in him.

  23. Kansas City Chiefs: James Brewer, OT, Indiana
    The Chiefs wanted Nate Solder, but he was selected four picks in front of them. They may grab a right tackle with one of their three Day 2 selections.

  24. New England Patriots: Ryan Williams, RB, Virginia Tech
    I had Ryan Williams here for the Saints, but this works just as well for the Patriots. New England reportedly really likes Williams, who would instantly upgrade a mediocre backfield.

  25. Seattle Seahawks: Ryan Mallett, QB, Arkansas
    I really need to put Ryan Mallett somewhere. Maybe Pete Carroll will think Mallett is just too good to pass up this late in the second round.

  26. Baltimore Ravens: Titus Young, WR, Boise State
    The Ravens need an upgrade at receiver, particularly a downfield threat to stretch the defense. Titus Young, one of the top players available, could become Baltimore's version of Mike Wallace.

  27. Cleveland Browns: Jerrel Jernigan, WR, Troy
    The Browns passed on Julio Jones, but you can't blame them because they received a boatload of picks from the Falcons. They can grab Colt McCoy's receiver at this spot.

  28. New England Patriots: Will Rackley, OT/G, Lehigh
    An offensive lineman with versatility, Will Rackley makes a ton of sense for the Patriots at the bottom of Round 2.

    Protecting Tom Brady is Belichick's first priority. Stephen Neal announced his retirement, so New England will be looking for a guard in free agency or early in the 2011 NFL Draft.

  29. San Diego Chargers: Martez Wilson, LB, Illinois
    San Diego has a bunch of free agent inside linebackers. A.J. Smith will likely target a replacement or two in the 2011 NFL Draft. Martez Wilson is one of the top players available.

  30. Chicago Bears: Allen Bailey, DE, Miami
    Bears fans chanted "DaQuan Bowers" at the end of the first round. Well, they can get their defensive end here.

  31. Pittsburgh Steelers: Curtis Brown, CB, Texas
    The Steelers passed on Aaron Williams at No. 31. That's fine, because they can use this selection on a cornerback. They've shown interest in Curtis Brown.

  32. Green Bay Packers: Jarvis Jenkins, DE/DT, Clemson
    Mike McCarthy recently spoke in the past tense when referring to Cullen Jenkins. Johnny Jolly, meanwhile, was just arrested for drug possession. The Packers really have to look into acquiring a new defensive end.

The Jets have to trade up and obtain a pass rusher, weather its Sam Acho, Justin Houston or Dontay Moch. They need a pass rush.

Bears don't need a DE. I'd rather go for G, WR, or CB if they could get McClain or Nevis in the 3rd.

Walter, the Giants need/want an offensive lineman more than they do a running back. Regardless of him being the best player on the board, they're not gonna take Mikel Leshoure.

No way the Giants pass up an opportunity to fill their biggest need with decent value here. I think Hudson is the pick if he's available. Reese is a value guy, but Coughlin has been very vocally concerned about the Center position and there is the possibility of no free agency or a limited free agency this year.

I'm convinced this guy has absolutely no idea what he's talking about.

First, he bags the Browns pick of Taylor, blabbering on about how he's a 3-4 NT and the Browns are going to the 4-3...except, if he would have actually done some homework, he would have discovered that Taylor played in a 4-3 at Baylor and will be an athletic, disruptive force against our division rivals. And his foot problems were a hoax.

And now, he thinks we will take a CB when Sheard ans Brooks Reed are still on the board and we need a DE badly.

Of course, this is the same "guru" who bagged our draft last year and that turned out well. I'm convinced there is no pick this guy would be grade well for Cleveland.

Walter, Do you think the Chiefs might double dip at receiver, maybe picking up another one in the fifth or sixth rounds? They're pretty light at WR even with the pick of Baldwin.

This definitely has a feel of an offensive draft for the Chiefs and I love the idea of getting an offensive tackle and center / guard in the second and third rounds like you predicted. The Chiefs can maintain with Studebaker at OLB and Edwards at NT for one more season, but their offense has to be able to put up more points to give the Chiefs a chance to compete with the big boys on their schedule.

Ya, Belichick is a genius all right. His goal is to accumulate as many first round picks as possible, but never use them. Seriously, he accumulates draft picks like a team that is in a major rebuilding mode. The Pats are not the Browns. Use the damn picks already!! You have a team that can win RIGHT NOW. Get some players that can help you do that!

Something tells me that pick 70 is where the Chiefs decide to go quarterback. GM Scott Pioli has a great relationship with Iowa Head Coach Kirk Ferentz and Pioli won't want to miss out on a chance to land QB Ricky Stanzi. With their trade down from pick 21 to pick 27, the Chiefs landed pick 70 from the Browns, essentially leap frogging several teams that might be interested in Stanzi, including the 49ers. They are now in a great position to secure their back up and potential QB of the future. Don't forget that Stanzi already has chemistry with Chiefs tight end Tony Moeaki. The two played together in 2010 and Moeaki was one of his favorite targets.

Can't see the Bucs passing on Houston if he's there at #51- if they're going to double-dip, he's the perfect candidate- they need a pure edge rusher like him more than ever now. As for the weed smoking- maybe they point to Tanard as a cautionary tale, Intervention-style? ;-)

Change the pick to Brooks Reed and I'm in. Browns are going to have smaller DEs with the huge interior linemen.

Ponder didn't tweet, "Buffalo".

The Florida state Coach did when he was traveling to Buffalo to scout Chad Kelly, Jim Kelly's nephew.


Nix also states he wants a starter in round 2.

Re-do this pick please

I think you may have glossed over the texans pick... weak analysis, i feel like you just said "insert rush olb here"... which is fair... doesnt explain why that rush olb is not justin houston tho. in fact i think you may have forgotten about the guy in the second round.
