2012 NFL Mock Draft: Complete Second Round

33. St. Louis Rams: Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford

Sam Bradford spent far too much time on his butt last season, which is why the Rams must jump at getting a potential franchise left tackle here in Martin.

 

34. Indianapolis Colts: Courtney Upshaw, DE/OLB, Alabama

The Colts got the best player in the draft in Andrew Luck, and now they will land the best player in the second round in Upshaw. This is a huge value pick here for a team looking to rebuild.

 

35. Baltimore Ravens (From Minnesota): Cordy Glenn, OG/OT, Georgia

The Ravens traded away their first-round pick, and it should prove to be a great move if they are able to add Glenn here with this selection. The former Georgia standout if a first-round talent, so this is an exceptional value pick for a team that needs help on their offensive line right now.

 

36. Denver Broncos (From Tampa Bay): Jerel Worthy, DT, Michigan State

Denver also traded back because they felt like they could get Worthy early on in the second round. If he falls to them, the Broncos will just add to what has already been an outstanding offseason.

 

37. Cleveland Browns: Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech

The Browns needed to completely reload on offense, and after taking RB Trent Richardson and QB Brandon Weeden in the first round, why not stick with the trend and take Hill, the best wide receiver still left on the board.

38. Jacksonville Jaguars: Andre Branch, DE, Clemson

The Jaguars had to take either a wide receiver or defensive end with that first-round pick. After making the decision to trade up and grab Justin Blackmon, it looks like Branch should fill that defensive end role perfectly with this second-round choice.

 

39. St. Louis Rams (From Washington): Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina

The Rams made a questionable trade in the first round, moving down to grab Michael Brockers. But, if they can land an offensive tackle in Martin and a wide receiver in Jeffery with these picks, this has the makings of a great draft for Jeff Fisher's team.

 

40. Carolina Panthers: Kendall Reyes, DT, Connecticut

The Panthers' biggest need coming into this draft was a defensive tackle, but when Luke Kuechly fell to them at No. 9 overall, they simply couldn't pass that up. Now, they address their need with Reyes, an athletic defensive tackle with good speed and power.

 

41. Buffalo Bills: Mike Adams, OT, Ohio State

They Bills land their left tackle of the future here. Despite questions about his character and effort, Adams is still a first-round talent with great value at this point in the draft process.

 

42. Miami Dolphins: Rueben Randle, WR, LSU

The Dolphins made the choice to pass up on Michael Floyd in the first round in favor of quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Now they make up for it by grabbing Randle, who was limited in college because of poor quarterback play.

43. Seattle Seahawks: Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford

After yesterday's debacle of a pick, the chances of guessing this pick correctly is about the same as winning the lottery. But, the Seahawks do desperately need help at the tight end position, and Fleener is the most elite tight end in the draft.

 

44. Kansas City Chiefs: Kelechi Osemele, G, Iowa State

The Chiefs got their nose tackle in the first round by drafting Dontari Poe, and now they fill their need at offensive guard with Osemele. This kid is a gifted athlete for his size—his long arms and solid footwork will be needed to be a starting guard one day.

 

45. St. Louis Rams: Janoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama

Jenkins has plenty of red flags surrounding him, which is why he has slipped this far. But in need of a cornerback, the Rams can't pass up on a guy with top-15 talent. With this pick, St. Louis keeps climbing the ladder towards and making the case for the best draft of any team.

 

46. Philadelphia Eagles: Lavonte David, OLB, Nebraska

The Eagles got their man in Fletcher Cox early on the first round, now they go ahead and address that linebacker spot. Philadelphia added standout MLB DeMeco Ryans in the offseason, but adding a guy like David improves this unit tremendously.

 

47. New York Jets: Juron Criner, WR, Arizona

The Jets got a steal with Quinton Coples falling to them in the first round, but now they need to add a playmaker on offense to help out Mark Sanchez. Criner is a big-play receiver who can stretch the field and provide a nice compliment to Santonio Holmes in New York.

48. New England Patriots: Peter Konz, C, Wisconsin

The Patriots need to address the center position on their offensive line, and if Konz falls here, they would be getting an elite blocker who would be ready to step in and play from day one if needed. This seems like a no-brainier if Konz is still on the draft board at this point.

 

49. San Diego Chargers: Amini Silatolu, G, Midwestern State

The Chargers landed a great value pick in the first round when South Carolina DE Melvin Ingram fell to them with the No. 18 pick. Now, the Chargers add some bulk to that offensive line with Silatolu, who is a smaller-school product who wowed scouts at this year's NFL combine.

 

50. Chicago Bears: Bobby Massie, OT, Ole Miss

Offensive tackle still remains a position of need for Chicago, despite grabbing Gabe Carimi in the first round of last year's draft. With Massie and Carimi slated in as the offensive tackles of the future, this team should have a bright future along that offensive line.

 

51. Philadelphia Eagles: Jeff Allen, OT/G, Illinois

The Eagles will probably flirt with the idea of taking Allen five picks before this, but if he drops here, this would be a great score for a team that needs to add depth to their offensive line. Allen has the ability to play everywhere on the line, which is exactly what this team should be looking for with this pick here.

 

52. Tennessee Titans: Trumaine Johnson, CB, Montana

The Titans lost Cortland Finnegan to free agency, and after going offense in the first round, they have no choice but do address that secondary with this pick. Johnson is a small-school kid, but one who is loaded with talent and upside.

 

53. Cincinnati Bengals: Ryan Broyles, WR, Oklahoma

Broyles was one of the best receivers in football before he suffered an ACL injury this past season. If he can come back at full strength, the combination of him and A.J. Green could be outstanding in a few years down the road.

 

54. Detroit Lions: Josh Robinson, CB, South Florida

The Lions really need to address their weakness in the defensive backfield with this pick. Robinson was the fastest player at this year's combine and has the chance to be a solid NFL cornerback in the near future.

 

55. Atlanta Falcons: Vinny Curry, DE, Marshall

Curry is a talented defensive end who is talented enough to be an early second-round selection. If he fell here to the Falcons, it would be awfully tough for this team to pass him up.

 

56. Pittsburgh Steelers: Lamar Miller, RB, Miami

With Rashard Mendenhall still battling injuries, the Steelers have no choice but to address the running back position with this pick. If Miller falls here, this would be a great value choice and would just add on to what is already a very solid draft for this team.

 

57. Denver Broncos: Chris Polk, RB, Washington

Peyton Manning needs a reliable running back who he can trust. With Willis McGahee aging and Knowshon Moreno looking more and more like a bust, Polk should be the pick here.

 

58. Houston Texans: Brian Quick, WR, Appalachian State

The Texans probably had their eyes on a wide receiver in the opening round, but Whitney Mercilus was too talented to pass up at that point. Now they get their guy in Quick, who is a big-play threat and should make a nice compliment opposite of Andrew Johnson.

 

59. Green Bay Packers: LaMichael James, RB, Oregon

The Green Bay Packers have been searching for an explosive running back for some time now, and this is where they land their guy in former Oregon star LaMichael James. If James can be half as good as he was in college, this offense will set records for years to come with Aaron Rodgers under center and James in the backfield.

 

60. Baltimore Ravens: Ronnell Lewis, OLB, Oklahoma

It wouldn't be the NFL draft without the Ravens grabbing a defensive player in the first two rounds, right? Lewis is a guy who can provide depth and be an eventual starter for what is already one of the best defenses in the league.

 

61. San Francisco 49ers: Devon Still, DE/DT, Penn State

Still is a guy who many mock drafts had going in the late first round or early second round. If he were to fall here, this would be a great value pick and help make up for a poor first-round selection.

 

62. New England Patriots: Brandon Boykin, CB, Georgia

The Patriots' pass defense was pathetic last season, and now they can address that need by adding Boykin late in the second round. Boykin is a fast cornerback who can also be a huge asset for this team in the return game.

 

63. New York Giants: Brandon Thompson, DT, Clemson

The Giants need to add depth to the interior of that defensive line, and if Thompson is still there at this point, it would be a great addition for the Super Bowl champions. He is a big body who should be an excellent run-stuffer in the middle of that defensive line.
