ROUND 1        ROUND 2        ROUND 3        ROUND 4

RICHARDSON'S MOCK
 



ROUND 2

1) St. Louis Rams: Jerel Worthy, DT, Michigan State

Worthy is an interesting prospect that plays like a top-12 pick sometimes while also disappearing like a 4th rounder as well.

2) Indianapolis Colts: Shea McClellin, DE/LB, Boise State

McClellin is a hot prospect right now that could go in the top-20, but he could also get washed down to this range by other pass rushers.

3) Minnesota Vikings: Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina


The Vikings could opt for a corner here as well, but they might be better off getting a huge potential threat like Jeffery to help out Ponder. Christian Ponder does not have an arm that requires multiple blazing receivers, and getting a monster with some possession skills could do wonders. 
  

4) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Lavonte David, OLB, Nebraska

The Bucs really need to find some options at linebacker because they are very thin.

5) Cleveland Browns: Janoris Jenkins, CB, N. Alabama

The Browns will be looking at either a RB, WR, CB or QB with the 4th pick in the draft. Getting a potential steal (or simple bust) like Jenkins here is well worth the risk.

6) Jacksonville Jaguars: Vinny Curry, DE, Marshall

I love mocking for the Jags because after the first round there is a good chance that they will go with the BPA from a non Big-6 conference. Don't believe me? Well they haven't taken a Big-6 conference player outside of the first round in two straight drafts.

7) St. Louis (from Wash): Bobby Massie, OT, Ole Miss

Jeff Fisher doesn't often take offensive linemen early, but he would have to be insane to not find someone in the first few rounds to protect Sam Bradford.

8) Carolina Panthers: Harrison Smith, S, Notre Dame

The Panthers have got to fix their secondary if they ever want to compete. Cam Newton can hang all the points in the world on teams, but it won't matter if the defense can't help him out. 

9) Buffalo Bills: Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford

The Bills tried turning up the TE spot last year with Scott Chandler, but he was so hit-or-miss that he could be replaced with a stud like Fleener.

10) Miami Dolphins: Rueben Randle, WR, LSU

The DolphLundgrens draft their second receiver in the draft here. Maybe Randle can play QB too.

11) Seattle Seahawks: Kevin Zeitler, OG, Wisconsin


The team doesn't have a lot of pure needs this offseason, so adding as much power and depth as possible would do wonders for the team.

12) Kansas City Chiefs: Brandon Weeden, QB, OK State

I think the Chiefs will be looking to get a passer with this pick, and the most logical pick would be to get a guy that is pro ready to push Matt Cassel. If nobody can get the job done then the team will be picking early next year.

13) Dallas Cowboys: Andre Branch, DE/LB, Clemson

On paper the Cowboys are another team that doesn't have a huge list of needs, but getting an extra pass rusher like Branch should be on the list. 
 
14) Philadelphia Eagles: Jeff Allen, OT, Illinois

The Eagles just spent a lot of Demetrius Bell, but they really need to add a lot of depth on their line. Allen is a guy that can play either tackle spot, and possibly even fill in at guard if needed.

15) New York Jets: Dwayne Allen, TE, Clemson

Rex Ryan just got Tim Tebow because he saw what the Dolphin Wildcat did to his defenses a few years ago. You had better believe that he will be looking to add a Patriotic TE feel to his team at some point.

16) New England Patriots (from Oak): Doug Martin, RB, Boise State

The Patriots drafted some rushers last year, but they reportedly like Doug Martin who does a little bit of everything.

17) San Diego Chargers: Ronnell Lewis, DE/LB, Oklahoma


The Chargers lost their spark (pun very much intended) on defense last year, and they must look to get that back.

18) Chicago Bears: Zebrie Sanders, OT/G, Florida State

The Bears won't go far into the playoffs if they don't have their quarterback(s) healthy. Part of the problem is that the team allows about one sack per play. Ok, maybe not one per play, but it sure felt like it.

19) Philadelphia Eagles (From AZ): Josh Robinson, CB, UCF
 
 The Eagles have talent in their backfield, but they just need to find an extra weapon if they ever want to compete as a dream team.

20) Tennessee Titans: Mohamed Sanu, WR, Rutgers

Sanu is a talented receiver with a lot of potential, and maybe reuniting with his former teammate Kenny Britt will push the duo to succeed.

21) Cincinnati Bengals: Lamar Miller, RB, Miami

The Bengals have to find a true replacement for Cedric Benson in the draft, and a guy like Lamar Miller fits the team's desires very well.

22) Detroit Lions: David Wilson, RB, Virginia Tech

Lions fans will hate this move, but I love it for a few reasons. First Jahvid Best can only handle 10-15 carries a game to avoid injury. Kevin Smith's no better. Mikel Leshoure is coming off an Achilles tear and has had two marijuana charges this offseason. The team needs a consistent guy, and Wilson's possibly the BPA here too.

23) Atlanta Falcons: Mitchell Schwartz, OT, Cal

This might be a bit early for Schwartz, but he is one of the last guys with some LT potential. 

24) Pittsburgh Steelers: Alameda Ta'Amu, NT, Washington

The Steelers might go for a NT like Ta'Amu in the first round, but getting one here is perfect.

25) Denver Broncos: Brian Quick, WR, Appalachian State


The Broncos are going to have to add some weapons for Peyton at some time, and Quick is a guy booming up some boards right now.

26) Houston Texans: Juron Criner, WR, Arizona

The Texans desperately need to add some depth at receiver in this draft.

27) New Orleans Saints:


28) Green Bay Packers: Brandon Thompson, DE/DT, Clemson

The Packers may opt to go a few different ways, but Thompson is a great value here that will improve the run and pass defense as a whole.

29) Baltimore Ravens: Mychal Kendricks, MLB, California

The Ravens don't have a lot of needs, so getting a guy like Kendricks could add a lethal piece of depth into the middle of the defense.
 
30) San Francisco 49ers: LaMichael James, RB, Oregon

Harbaugh's last collegiate coaching loss was to Oregon in 2010 when LaMichael James ran for 257 yards and three scores. He is the perfect change of pace for the team.

31) New England Patriots: Trumaine Johnson, CB/S, Montana

The Pats have so many needs that it is laughable that they are the favorites to win the Super Bowl next year. The team would really love to get a guy like Trumaine Johnson that projects as a nickel corner and a full time safety.

32) New York Giants: Orson Charles, TE, Georgia

The Giants usually try to load up on value in the draft, and a guy like Charles is a huge value that fills a need.
