2014 NFL Mock Draft: Round 2

Last update: Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2013. Major changes in both rounds.
Next update: Next week. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

The order of this 2014 NFL Mock Draft is based on my NFL Power Rankings.


    *** THIS IS A LIVE 2014 NFL MOCK DRAFT. PICKS ARE BEING POSTED NOW. TO SEE PREVIOUS VERSIONS, CHECK OUT THE ARCHIVED 2013 NFL MOCK DRAFT SECTION. FOLLOW @walterfootball FOR UPDATES ***

  1. Oakland Raiders: Brandon Coleman, WR, Rutgers
    The Raiders’ current starting wideouts are Denarius Moore and Rod Streater. Neither is a No. 1 receiver, so Oakland needs to find one for its new quarterback.

    Follow @walterfootball for updates.

  2. Jacksonville Jaguars: Bryan Stork, C, Florida State
    It was surprising to see the Jaguars ignore the interior of their offensive line in the 2013 NFL Draft. Center Brad Meester, who just turned 36, isn’t nearly the player he once was.

  3. New York Jets: Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt
    Santonio Holmes won’t be on the team much longer, so even if Stephen Hill develops, the Jets will need another starting receiver.

  4. San Diego Chargers: De’Anthony Thomas, RB, Oregon
    The Chargers signed Danny Woodhead to be their third-down back, but I’m not sure he’ll work outside of New England’s system. Philip Rivers needs a true replacement for Darren Sproles. De’Anthony Thomas would definitely work.

    Pick change; previously Adrian Hubbard, DE/OLB



  5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Stephon Tuitt, DE/DT, Notre Dame
    The Buccaneers have issues all over on defense, one of which is at the end position because they couldn’t re-sign Michael Bennett.

  6. Buffalo Bills: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State
    The Bills were expected to address the cornerback position in the 2013 NFL Draft, but never got around to it. They probably won’t avoid that area two years in a row.

  7. Tennessee Titans: David Fales, QB, San Jose State
    If the Titans are drafting seventh overall, it means that Jake Locker struggled yet again. It’s also likely that the entire front office was fired, and new regimes mean new quarterbacks.

    David Fales could go in the first round with another strong season. His decision-making, accuracy and field vision are terrific. He doesn’t have the strongest arm, but it’s good enough.

  8. Philadelphia Eagles: Morgan Breslin, DE/OLB, USC
    There’s doubt that Brandon Graham and Trent Cole can fit into the Eagles’ new defense. If that turns out to be the case, Philadelphia will be searching for a pass-rusher across from Connor Barwin.

    Pick change; previously Adrian Hubbard, DE/OLB

  9. Kansas City Chiefs: Ed Stinson, DE/DT, Alabama
    The Chiefs decided to keep Tyson Jackson for one more season, but it’s unlikely that he’ll be back in 2014. With that in mind, they’ll be looking for a new defensive end next offseason.

    Pick change; previously Henry Anderson, DE/DT

  10. Arizona Cardinals: Stephen Morris, QB, Miami
    If the Cardinals are drafting 10th overall, it means that the Carson Palmer experiment didn’t go as well as planned. In that case, they’d consider a quarterback in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Stephen Morris would fit perfectly in Arizona’s offense.

  11. Detroit Lions: Cameron Erving, OT, Florida State
    The Lions failed to land one of the top tackles in the first round, but they can settle for someone like Cameron Erving in Round 2. Matthew Stafford needs better protection.

    Pick change; previously Ryan Shazier, LB

  12. Dallas Cowboys: Timmy Jernigan, DT, Florida State
    I have no idea what the Cowboys were thinking when they passed on Sharrif Floyd at No. 18 overall. Moving down and then selecting a third-round center made it clearer than ever that they need a real general manager. In the meantime, Jerry Jones will continue to run the team into the ground.

    Perhaps Jones will suddenly realize that Dallas has a glaring need on the interior of its defensive front. Timmy Jernigan would be a nice fit as Monte Kiffin’s three-technique – just as Floyd would have been.



  13. Cleveland Browns: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M
    Johnny Manziel is a giant douche. Scouts have told us that he looked like a first-rounder prior to his off-the-field antics. He may still go in the first if he gets his act together, but I feel more comfortable dropping him to this spot.

    Michael Lombardi won’t care too much about Manziel’s personality flaws. Remember, Lombardi was head over heels for Ryan Mallett despite his off-the-field issues. Factor in that Johnny Football fits perfectly into Cleveland’s offense, and this match just makes too much sense.

  14. Carolina Panthers: Quandre Diggs, CB, Texas
    The Panthers went back-to-back defensive tackles this past April, so they could definitely do the same thing at the cornerback position considering the circumstances.

  15. Miami Dolphins: Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina
    The Dolphins signed Dustin Keller this offseason, but he went on to tear his ACL, MCL and PCL in the preseason. They’ll have to find a new tight end.

    Pick change; previously Ty Zimmerman, S

  16. Pittsburgh Steelers: Christian Jones, LB, Florida State
    The Steelers were targeting Dont’a Hightower in the 2012 NFL Draft, but just couldn’t resist David DeCastro when he inexplicably dropped to them. Maybe they’ll finally end up with a stud inside linebacker.

    Pick change; previously Eric Ebron, TE

  17. Minnesota Vikings: A.J. McCarron, QB, Alabama
    The Vikings didn’t find a young quarterback this offseason because they didn’t want to hurt Christian Ponder’s confidence. However, if Ponder stinks again, Minnesota may look into drafting a young signal-caller.

    Pick change; previously Cyril Richardson, G

  18. Chicago Bears: Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State
    The Bears will almost certainly re-sign Jay Cutler, but it wouldn’t hurt for them to grab a potential successor in this loaded draft class.

  19. St. Louis Rams: Cyril Richardson, G/OT, Baylor
    Another offensive line upgrade for the Rams, who have issues at left guard.

    Pick change; previously Craig Loston, S

  20. New York Giants: Ryan Shazier, OLB, Ohio State
    The Giants have one of the worst linebacking corps in the NFL. Something must be done about this.

    Pick change; previously Cameron Erving, OT



  21. Cincinnati Bengals: Travis Swanson, C, Arkansas
    The Bengals don’t have much at center, with Trevor Robinson and Kyle Cook set to battle for the job this year.

  22. Indianapolis Colts: Henry Anderson, DE/DT, Stanford
    I mocked Datone Jones to the Colts for a while because they need a pass-rushing presence up front. That’s still a hole they have to fill.

    Pick change; previously Jeoffrey Pagan, DE/DT

  23. Atlanta Falcons: Ka’Deem Carey, RB, Arizona
    The Falcons signed Steven Jackson to be their current workhorse at running back, but he’s not going to last after 2-3 years. The team needs a long-term solution at running back.

    Pick change; previously Will Sutton, DE/DT

  24. Washington Redskins: Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State
    DeAngelo Hall won’t be around much longer, so the Redskins will be in need of another cornerback sometime soon.



  25. Houston Texans: Jeoffrey Pagan, DE/DT, Alabama
    The Texans have a couple of defensive linemen heading for free agency in March, including Antonio Smith.

    Pick change; previously Bryn Renner, QB

  26. Baltimore Ravens: Colt Lyerla, TE, Oregon
    Dennis Pitta just suffered a brutal hip injury that could downgrade his effectiveness in the 2014 season. Ed Dickson, meanwhile, is an impending free agent.

  27. Green Bay Packers: Ty Zimmerman, S, Kansas State
    The Packers could be looking for a safety next offseason depending on how M.D. Jennings fares in his first full season as a starter.

    Pick change; previously Morgan Breslin, DE/OLB

  28. New Orleans Saints: Deandre Coleman, DE/DT, California
    I mocked Sheldon Richardson to the Saints a couple of times because they happen to be thin at defensive end in their new 3-4. That’s still the case.

  29. Denver Broncos: Andrew Jackson, ILB, Western Kentucky
    The Broncos have such an epically bad situation at inside linebacker that they’ll almost be forced to address the position via free agency or the first couple rounds of the 2014 NFL Draft.

  30. San Francisco 49ers: Josh Huff, WR, Oregon
    Anquan Boldin and Mario Manningham will both be free agents next March. The 49ers need a speed receiver to complement Michael Crabtree.

  31. New England Patriots: Daniel McCullers, NT, Tennessee
    The Patriots surprisingly avoided the defensive tackle position in the 2013 NFL Draft, so perhaps they’ll double up next spring. They’ll find help there once Tommy Kelly inevitably fails, though this is more of a long-term replacement for Vince Wilfork.

  32. Seattle Seahawks: Odell Beckham, WR, LSU
    The Seahawks might be looking for a receiver early in the 2014 NFL Draft despite trading for Percy Harvin. Sidney Rice may not be around much longer.
