  1. The Lions need to draft RB Jonathan Taylor with their 2nd round pick. It would be a rock solid pick and it would give the Lions (one of) the best running back duos in the league. Imagine facing Kerryon Johnson and Jonathan Taylor.

  2. Cannot see the Colts coming out of the 2nd round without a WR. Indy fans would revolt in droves if the likes of Pittman, Claypool or Mims were passed over. I am willing to bet one of those three will be wearing the blue horseshoe come Aug.

  3. Packers were supposed to pick McKinney in the first round. Now they will take him in the 2nd? How good is this dude? Will he be around at the end of the 3rd? He better be, because the packers are picking a wide receiver. If they don’t land a wide out that can play, they might as well trade Rodgers.

  4. The Bengals need a receiver, OL and linebackers. Why would they take a CB? They should take Tee Higgins or Denzel Mims or possibly Josh Jones if he can move to RT.

  5. I hope the colts draft Laviska shenault and Antoine Winfield Jr. Those would be 2 solid picks.

  6. Colts definitely need receiver help big-time, but teaming Buckner and Davidson on the line would be be sweet.

  7. I think it’s unlikely that the Patriots choose a DT in round two when they have a glaring need at linebacker with Van Noy and Collins gone. Zack Baun seems like the best choice.

  8. Miami’s second round needs to be … No. 39 Xavier McKinney, S, Alabama, and No 54 Jonathan Taylor, RB, Wisconsin. Then go with some more OL in the later rounds.

  9. Of course since the BB has the Patriots with less than $2M to spend, he needed to trade his 1st round pick away because he can’t afford it. Will he do the same thing with his 2nd round pick?

  10. Every day the Patriots get worse and with Belichick’s drafting “skills”, look for the downward spiral to continue

    I really do not see the Bears taking a RB with their picks in second round.
    ____________________________________________________________
    I agree, Nagy doesn’t seem to have much interest in running the ball. I’d definitely welcome Dobbins though

  12. Bucs need RB, S, DE…draft best available of those three in no particular order…..then draft and develop more OL.

  13. Bucs need RB, S, DE…draft best player available of those three in no particular order…..then draft and develop more OL…

  14. Dallas needs another WR.. wait a minute no they dont cause they now have the best WR core in the league!!! CB or Safety should be the move here.

  15. No o-line for Vikings again? smh

    Spielman has whiffed on so many offensive linemen, he’s finally just given up.

  16. If the Vikings trade and get Trent Williams, and then draft an edge rusher, there will be back slapping and cigars all around, and we will call this off season an A+.

  17. Bills will trade up….we have 7 picks and 7 rooks aren’t making the roster. Sounds funny as a Bills fan, but the team does have depth. RB and big Safety, maybe a WR/OT if one name they love falls. They did it with Ford and Edmunds…. the big RB from Utah or the kid from Lenoire Rhyne. Let’s see.

  18. I thought the Bears were in love with David Montgomery? He’s a solid back. His problem is the egg head calling the plays. Keep running 5 wr sets at the goal line Nagy and then blame kickers for reasons you can’t win games.

  19. The Rams have glaring needs on the O line, MLB and edge rusher, with two 1000 yard receivers and an excellent 3rd choice in Josh Reynolds.

    Therefore.the projections in this mock that the Rams will take 2 WRs might show this to be a little sloppy

  20. I am anxious to see what Belichick does. If he is able to steal Jacob Eason, the dynasty will continue, and every NFL owner should be asking their personnel people some serious questions. Eason is a can’t miss elite QB who hasn’t played in the same system 2 years. Burrow sure looked a lot better his second season as starter after transferring. Eason should have been drafted #2 overall. Everyone is missing on this kid.

  21. No way the Rams take a pair of WRs in round 2, they’re still fairly loaded at the position. I’d be surprised if they didn’t address the holes in the o-line and possibly take another RB.

  22. Ezra Cleveland to the Bills? Only if he’s the best player available, which doesn’t seem likely.

    Who should he have taken in the first round?

    There were 5 OT’s off the board already. You wanted the Vikings to reach and take the 6th best OT, rather than what many regarded as the 3rd best WR?

    Who should the Vikings have taken? Was there any offensive lineman still available that even had a first round grade?

  25. I have to admit I mocked your first-round mock draft but you really nailed a lot of those picks. Not necessarily always matching the player to the team but projecting players to go about where they wound up going, or getting the position right but not the exact player. I think we laugh at any mock draft that doesn’t look like all the other mock drafts but this shows you really had some inside information about where guys were going to go. Nice job.

    I’m noticing that when you got a pick wrong in the first-round mock you’re often mocking that player to the same team in the second round. From what I can tell, this was done with Trevon Diggs to the Cowboys, Raekwon Davis to the Vikings, Yetur Gross-Matos to the Seahawks, Laviska Shenault to the Ravens, and Xavier McKinney to the Packers. If these guys were really worthy of first-round picks, it seems unlikely that they would drop a full round. You clearly have some steam about these teams really liking those particular players, so maybe some of them will even trade up to get them.

  26. Thinking the Bengals take Baun, Higgins or McKinney. It’s also very VERY possible they trade down. Someone prob has a pick they are in love with

  27. No way in hell do the Jets draft another tackle! They’ll at least draft a WR or a CB. Worst pick in this mock draft

  28. Dolphins and Patriots expected to announce trade tonight. OG Joe Thuney to the Fins for 2nd and 3rd rounders tonight and a 2021 conditional draft choice.

  29. The Packers take a QB in the first, and now this site is projecting a S at Number two. We don’t need a S, we drafted one last year. On RB Taylor, I watched him many times and he doesn’t run over people. If he can’t run around them or if there isn’t a hole, not so good.

    The Chiefs may disagree with that assessment.

  31. Lots of talk of Vikings trading a 3rd and a 4th to get Williams. So, how they gonna get him under the salary cap on an extension?

  32. Denver will take Diggs, they need a starting corner, and there will be other centers left in the third round.
