2014 NFL Mock Draft: Round 2

Last update: Wednesday, April 16, 2014. Major changes in all 5 rounds.
Next update: Next week. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.


*** This mock draft will be updated at least once per week (Tuesday afternoons and other times for important events.). Check out old versions of this 2014 NFL Mock Draft in the archived mock draft section. Follow @walterfootball for updates. ***

  1. Houston Texans: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
    You would've been locked in a mental ward had you told someone five months ago that the Texans could draft Teddy Bridgewater - in the second round! But Bridgewater is probably going to fall that far. You can check out the various reports in the NFL Draft Rumor Mill, and stay tuned for another report coming soon. We've spoken to a personnel man with an NFC team that doesn't need a quarterback, and the things he said about Bridgewater blew my mind.

    Pick change; previously Carlos Hyde, RB

  2. Washington Redskins: Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech
    The Redskins just re-signed DeAngelo Hall, but he won't be around much longer. Another Virginia Tech cornerback could be a possible long-term solution. Kyle Fuller will probably be chosen in the first round, but as previously reported in the 2014 NFL Draft Team Rumors page, Washington might attempt to move up.

    Pick change; previously David Yankey, G/OT

  3. Cleveland Browns: Carlos Hyde, RB, Ohio State
    The Browns signed Ben Tate, but they can't rely on him to stay healthy. It appears as though they agree with that, given that they didn't pay him very much. The Vikings once chose Toby Gerhart in the second round with Adrian Peterson on the roster, so don't say that Cleveland can't take a running back in the second frame.

    Pick change; previously Allen Robinson, WR

  4. Oakland Raiders: Timmy Jernigan, DT, Florida State
    I have a feeling Timmy Jernigan will fall during the draft for multiple reasons. If that happens, the Raiders will be more than happy to take him at this juncture, as he would strengthen a weak group of defensive tackles.



  5. Atlanta Falcons: Trent Murphy, DE/OLB, Stanford
    If the Falcons can't obtain Jadeveon Clowney or Khalil Mack in the first round, they'll almost certainly draft a pass-rusher here. Trent Murphy fits what Thomas Dimitroff looks for in a prospect, and the Stanford product also happens to be a good match for Atlanta's defensive system.

    Pick change; previously Morgan Moses, OT

  6. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Allen Robinson, WR, Penn State
    The Buccaneers would love for Sammy Watkins to fall to them at No. 7, but there's not much of a chance of that happening. They could also take Mike Evans as a solid consolation prize. If, however, they go with the Johnny Manziel route, they may opt to address the receiver position in the second round.

    Pick change; previously Jimmy Garoppolo, QB

  7. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, Eastern Illinois
    The Jaguars have to take a quarterback early for obvious reasons. As mentioned earlier, there have been reports indicating that Jacksonville wants to draft Jimmy Garoppolo in the second round.

    Pick change; previously A.J. McCarron, QB

  8. Jacksonville Jaguars: Demarcus Lawrence, DE/OLB, Boise State
    This is Minnesota's pick, acquired via the first-round Blake Bortles trade. If the Jaguars can't get Khalil Mack (or Anthony Barr via trading down), they may opt for someone to fill their LEO position at this juncture. Demarcus Lawrence, one of the top prospects available, would be a good fit, as he would help Jacksonville try to take down Andrew Luck.

  9. Buffalo Bills: Troy Niklas, TE, Notre Dame
    The Bills have to add play-makers around E.J. Manuel, who needs all the help he can get. The tight end position definitely needs to be upgraded.

  10. Tennessee Titans: Jeremy Hill, RB, LSU
    The Titans probably won't be able to trade Chris Johnson. If they cut him, Tennessee will obviously be searching for a new lead running back.

  11. New York Giants: Scott Crichton, DE, Oregon State
    New York could double dip in the trenches. Justin Tuck was one of many Giants to sign with the Raiders, so a replacement is needed despite the Robert Ayers signing.

  12. St. Louis Rams: Dion Bailey, S, USC
    St. Louis' defense came on late in the season, but it struggled at times during the year for a couple of reasons. One was the play of safety Rodney McLeod. He wasn't terrible, but it's clear that the Rams need to find an upgrade next to T.J. McDonald.



  13. Detroit Lions: Cody Latimer, WR, Indiana
    I had the Lions moving up for Sammy Watkins in my trades mock. They may do so in real life, but chances are they'll have to address the receiver position on Day 2.

    Pick change; previously Kyle Fuller, CB

  14. Pittsburgh Steelers: Jason Verrett, CB, TCU
    The Steelers have to address the cornerback position. Ike Taylor was dreadful this past year, as the receivers he battled - save for A.J. Green, oddly enough - posted season-high totals against him.

  15. Dallas Cowboys: Jimmie Ward, S, Northern Illinois
    Dallas had horrible safety play throughout the 2013 season. An upgrade in this area would have allowed it to beat Philadelphia in Week 17.

  16. Baltimore Ravens: Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt
    Baltimore added Steve Smith, which I thought was an awful move (go here for my NFL Free Agent Grades), but regardless of my opinion, the Ravens are still in the market for a long-term No. 2 option for Joe Flacco.

  17. New York Jets: Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech
    Kellen Winslow proved to be an insufficient replacement for Dustin Keller, so this is a position New York will look to upgrade this offseason.

  18. Miami Dolphins: Chris Borland, ILB, Wisconsin
    The Dolphins are in the market for a new middle linebacker, as Dannell Ellerbe predictably struggled this past season. Miami's new front office has no allegiance to Ellerbe.

  19. Chicago Bears: Marcus Roberson, CB, Florida
    Chicago was able to re-sign Tim Jennings recently, while Charles Tillman was brought back, but for only one year. The Bears have to deal with Aaron Rodgers and Matthew Stafford twice per year, so they'll definitely look to upgrade their secondary with multiple selections.

  20. Arizona Cardinals: Stephon Tuitt, DE/DT, Notre Dame
    Darnell Dockett, 33 in May, is due $5.75 million this upcoming season. He's no longer the pass-rusher he once was, and Arizona lacks a long-term replacement for him.



  21. Green Bay Packers: Ed Reynolds, S, Stanford
    Is there any doubt that the Packers need to improve their secondary? Their defensive backfield blew so many coverages throughout the season, and they had no chance against Colin Kaepernick.

  22. Philadelphia Eagles: Jeremiah Attaochu, DE/OLB, Georgia Tech
    The only linebacker who consistently put pressure on the quarterback was Trent Cole, and he won't last beyond next year because he's due $10 million in 2015. Another pass-rusher is currently needed anyway.

  23. Cincinnati Bengals: Marcus Martin, C, USC
    The center position is one of the top needs I have listed in the Bengals team needs page. Kyle Cook needed to be upgraded before his release.

  24. San Francisco 49ers: Keith McGill, CB, Utah
    San Francisco's group of cornerbacks isn't very strong, as Carlos Rogers and Tarell Brown have both moved on to new teams. The 49ers are weak at this position, so they could easily spend two early selections on upgrades in the 2014 NFL Draft.



  25. San Diego Chargers: Kyle Van Noy, DE/OLB, BYU
    The Chargers have shown a lot of interest in Kyle Van Noy, who could help their pass-rushing woes; they need an upgrade across from Melvin Ingram.

  26. New Orleans Saints: Davante Adams, WR, Fresno State
    The Saints could use another receiver. Marques Colston disappointed this season prior to the Carolina victory, yet he's still New Orleans' top option by a wide margin. Lance Moore was recently cut.

  27. Indianapolis Colts: David Yankey, G/OT, Stanford
    Adding an offensive lineman who can play multiple positions would be a good idea for the Colts, who have issues up front.

    Pick change; previously Lamarcus Joyner, CB/S

  28. Carolina Panthers: Paul Richardson, WR, Colorado
    The Panthers' receiving corps is a joke right now. They're so desperate for a wideout that they may have to as Nate from the Play 60 commercials to catch passes from Cam Newton (as posted in my April Fools Mock Draft). They almost have to go with a wideout in the first two rounds.

    Pick change; previously Cyrus Kouandjio, OT




  29. San Francisco 49ers: Kareem Martin, DE, North Carolina
    The 49ers have Tank Carradine waiting in the wings, but with four second-day picks, they can afford to go with the best player available who fits their scheme perfectly.

  30. New England Patriots: Weston Richburg, C, Colorado State
    Ryan Wendell was re-signed, but an upgrade at center is still needed. He was most responsible for Tom Brady's poor pass protection.

  31. Denver Broncos: Cyrus Kouandjio, OT, Alabama
    Both Cyrus Kouandjio and Antonio Richardson took major hits at the Combine because of their failed physical exams. I didn't know what to do with them, so I dropped both to Rounds 2-3.

    The Broncos may move Orlando Franklin to fill Zane Beadles' spot. If so, they'll have to obtain someone to compete with Chris Clark for the right tackle job.

    Pick change; previously Trent Murphy, DE/OLB

  32. Seattle Seahawks: Martavis Bryant, WR, Clemson
    Golden Tate left for Detroit, but the Seahawks needed an upgrade at receiver anyway (Cris Carter would agree).
