The 2019 NFL Draft resumes tonight with the second and third rounds, with a number of players that easily could’ve went in Round 1 still available. Predicting the first round is hard enough, but this Round 2 and Round 3 mock draft goes over what tonight might look like with 32 players off the board.
33. ARI: Greedy Williams, CB, LSU
The first pick of the second round is always a potential trade spot if a team wants to jump up for a player they really like, but there’ll be no trade predictions in this mock. The Cardinals can add LSU’s Greedy Williams, who was once seen as a potential top-ten pick, to their cornerback group.
34. IND: Byron Murphy, CB, Washington
The Colts traded out of their first-round pick, but they could’ve taken Washington cornerback Byron Murphy up there and most people would’ve agreed it’d be a strong pick. One of the remaining wide receivers is an option here, but Indy opts for defense.
35. OAK: A.J. Brown, WR, Ole Miss
Clearly, the Raiders covet talent, character, and production with their draft picks, so we have a pretty good idea of what GM Mike Mayock will do in drafts moving forward. A.J. Brown clearly loves football as a guy that could’ve chosen to play professional baseball, and he was highly-productive at Mississippi.
36. SF: D.K. Metcalf, WR, Ole Miss
While not close to as productive as his college teammate, D.K. Metcalf is simply a physical freak. The short-lived talk about Metcalf potentially being an option at No. 2 overall for the Niners was obviously way off the mark, but perhaps he’ll be in consideration at No. 36.
37. SEA: Joejuan Williams, CB, Vanderbilt
Seattle has a solid cornerback group in place, but Vanderbilt corner Joejuan Williams fits the mold perfectly for what the team is looking for in a defensive back.
38. JAX: Taylor Rapp, S, Washington
The Jaguars had to be thrilled when Josh Allen was available at pick No. 7, and they can continue adding to the defense here with Washington safety Taylor Rapp. Allen and Rapp are a couple of high-character guys that would help get a disappointing 2018 unit on track.
39. TB: David Montgomery, RB, Iowa State
It’s early in his tenure obviously, but Bucs head coach Bruce Arians has indicated that he’s happy with the running back group led by Peyton Barber and Ronald Jones. That won’t prevent Tampa Bay from targeting a running back if they feel it’s a player than can play all three downs, which David Montgomery can do.
40. BUF: Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida
Many people expected Jawaan Taylor to be a top-15 selection last night, and the Bills would probably feel he’s a nice value here. The big offensive tackle from Florida could potentially slide in at right tackle on Day 1.
41. DEN: Drew Lock, QB, Missouri
John Elway could’ve drafted Drew Lock last night if he wanted, but that doesn’t mean he won’t be interested if the cannon-armed quarterback is still sitting around at pick No. 41. This wouldn’t mean Lock would have to be handed the starting job at any point, as the cost to acquire him isn’t too high here in the second round.
42. CIN: Irv Smith Jr., TE, Alabama
The Bengals don’t have a big need at tight end, but new head coach Zac Taylor might feel Irv Smith Jr. could be a ten-year starter in his offense.
43. DET: Rock Ya-Sin, CB, Temple
Matt Patricia wants physical corners, and Rock Ya-Sin can develop into one of the best press cornerbacks in the league. The Temple product wouldn’t need to play a ton right away with the Lions.
44. GB: Hakeem Butler, WR, Iowa State
It looked like the Packers might be trading up for a wide receiver last night before selecting Maryland safety Darnell Savage Jr., but there are plenty of receiver options on the board on Day 2. Hakeem Butler has ideal size and is polished enough to start opposite Davante Adams immediately.
45. LAR: Dalton Risner, OT, Kansas State
Another player that was a potential first-round pick, Kansas State offensive tackle Dalton Risner would bring plenty of versatility to the offensive line for Sean McVay’s high-powered offense.
46. IND: Deebo Samuel, WR, South Carolina
There are other options at wide receiver for the Colts here, but Deebo Samuel is a good fit in Frank Reich’s offense, and he has the character Colts GM Chris Ballard is looking for.
47. CAR: Julian Love, CB, Notre Dame
The Panthers already did a good job of getting an area of need with promising pass rusher Brian Burns last night, and the defense could add another piece in Notre Dame cornerback Julian Love, who was a potential first-rounder.
48. MIA: Cody Ford, G, Oklahoma
The Dolphins are likely going to build the team from the inside out, and it might continue with Oklahoma offensive lineman Cody Ford after they took Christian Wilkins for the defense last night.
49. CLE: Greg Little, OT, Ole Miss
Greg Little certainly has the upside to develop into a Pro Bowl left tackle, so the Browns would likely be thrilled to get him with their first pick of the draft at No. 49 overall.
50. MIN: Max Scharping, OT, Northern Illinois
Minnesota might ultimately trade up for Little or another lineman they are high on, but Max Scharping could be an option as a six-foot-six tackle to help protect Kirk Cousins.
51. TEN: Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio State
Taywan Taylor offers similar skills, but Parris Campbell would add depth to Tennessee’s receiving corps. The speedy Buckeye would make things easier on Marcus Mariota by doing damage on drag routes and screens.
52. DEN: Dre’Mont Jones, DL, Ohio State
De’Mont Jones visited the Broncos during the pre-draft process, so there’s interest there. He’d be a great value at No. 52.
53. PHI: Deionte Thompson, S, Alabama
The concern for Deionte Thompson seems to be his slender frame, but he could add some mass in Philadelphia without having to play much right away for the Eagles. He’d eventually take over for Malcolm Jenkins or Rodney McCleod.
54. HOU: Trayvon Mullen, CB, Clemson
Perhaps the Texans will package these back-to-back picks to trade up for someone like Greedy Williams or Byron Murphy, but Trayvon Mullen (the cousin of Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson) is athletic with a lot of upside.
55. HOU: Miles Sanders, RB, Penn State
The Texans don’t have an immediate need at running back with Lamar Miller and D’Onta Foreman in the mix, but Penn State’s Miles Sanders has the ability to eventually take over as the workhorse in Bill O’Brien’s offense.
56. NE: Germaine Pratt, LB, NC State
Germaine Pratt is a former safety that switched to linebacker, and he still flies around the field as fast as a safety. Bill Belichick would probably like a versatile player like Pratt on his defense.
57. PHI: Mack Wilson, LB, Alabama
Linebacker might be the weakest area on the Eagles roster, and they lost Jordan Hicks in free agency to amplify that. Mack Wilson of Alabama could push for a starting role on Day 1.
58. DAL: Justin Layne, CB, Michigan State
Cowboys defensive backs coach Kris Richard would probably love to work with Justin Layne, a former receiver that’s shown natural ability at corner for Michigan State. Layne could go a lot higher than this (potentially to the Seahawks).
59. IND: Nasir Adderley, S, Delaware
Nasir Adderley can drop down and cover slot receivers, and he can play a deep centerfield role, so he’d help the Colts be able to mix and match with former first-round pick Malik Hooker.
60. LAC: Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, S, Florida
Florida safety Chauncey Gardner-Johnson would be an excellent fit next to Derwin James, as they’re both very versatile players that can cause headaches for opposing offenses.
61. KC: Connor McGovern, OG, Penn State
With everything that’s going on, the Chiefs might be wise to play it safe with an offensive lineman like Connor McGovern here. Protecting Patrick Mahomes is obviously critical for KC.
62. NO: Damien Harris, RB, Alabama
After losing Mark Ingram in free agency, fellow Crimson Tide running back Damien Harris would be the perfect guy to replace him. Harris can be trusted to play a lot as a rookie.
63. KC: Riley Ridley, WR, Georgia
Tyreek Hill could be on his way out of Kansas City, and he’s obviously impossible to replace with just one guy. Riley Ridley has the route-running chops to compliment Sammy Watkins.
64. NE: Juan Thornhill, S, Virginia
A former high school quarterback, Juan Thornhill is a smart player the Pats would probably love to add to the back end of their defense.
65. ARI: J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, WR, Stanford
Larry Fitzgerald is a (lofty) comparison for J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, and Arizona would be one of the better spots for the Stanford receiver. Kliff Kingsbury would be set for years with Christian Kirk and Arcega-Whiteside at receiver.
66. PIT: Isaiah Prince, OT, Ohio State
The Steelers traded Marcus Gilbert to Arizona earlier this offseason, and Isaiah Prince might be able to take over the starting right tackle job right away in Pittsburgh.
67. SF: Erik McCoy, C, Texas A&M
Erik McCoy is a balanced interior lineman that can help protect Jimmy Garoppolo and pave running lanes for the stable of running backs in San Francisco.
68. NYJ: Elgton Jenkins, C, Mississippi State
The Jets are looking for a franchise center, and Elgton Jenkins could fill that role.
69. JAX: Miles Boykin, WR, Notre Dame
Jacksonville wants big targets that can go up and get the ball for new quarterback Nick Foles, and Miles Boykin fits the mold at six-foot-four with 4.42 wheels and a 43.5-inch vertical.
70. TB: Mecole Hardman, WR, Georgia
Mecole Hardman is the type of player Bruce Arians seems like he’d have fun using. The Georgia product could at least be sent down the field to clear out things underneath for the rest of the offense.
71. DEN: Amani Oruwariye, CB, Penn State
Especially after going offense (including quarterback in this mock), Vic Fangio might want to even things up and add another defender. Amani Oruwariye, a potential first-round pick, would be a great value here.
72. CIN: Lonnie Johnson, CB, Kentucky
Kentucky cornerback Lonnie Johnson could be another value pick as at the position, and he would fit in with that corner group in Cincinnati.
73. NE: Ryan Finley, QB, NC State
The Patriots keep their intentions shielded as well as anyone, but NC State quarterback Ryan Finley might interest them at this point in the draft.
74. BUF: Jace Sternberger, TE, Texas A&M
The Bills were connected to first-round tight ends, so Jace Sternberger is an option to pair with free-agent acquisition Tyler Kroft.
75. GB: Darrell Henderson, RB, Memphis
Aaron Jones has dealt with injuries early in his career, so the Packers might just want to add another runner to the backfield mix with Jones, Jamaal Williams, and company. Darrell Henderson was getting some first-round buzz earlier in the process.
76. WAS: David Long, CB, Michigan
The Redskins need more from their cornerbacks if the defense is going to take a step forward in 2019, and David Long should push for snaps immediately as a rookie.
77. CAR: Michael Jordan, G, Ohio State
The Panthers need more competition and depth on the offensive line. Michael Jordan would likely be a favorite to start on the interior in 2019.
78. MIA: Iman Marshall, CB, USC
Iman Marshall is a physical cornerback that new Dolphins head coach Brian Flores could move to safety if necessary. Flores probably likes that Marshall tackles well.
79. LAR: Chase Winovich, EDGE, Michigan
This might be too low for Chase Winovich, but the Rams could utilize him as a situational pass rusher with a high motor.
80. CLE: Anthony Nelson, DE, Iowa
The Browns have Myles Garrett and Olivier Vernon at defensive end, but every team could use more depth in the rotation. Anthony Nelson would fit Cleveland’s defense.
81. MIN: Jamel Dean, CB, Auburn
Rick Spielman just can’t help himself when it comes to cornerbacks, and Jamel Dean is a size-speed guy that might be selected higher if not for medical concerns.
82. TEN: Christian Miller, EDGE, Alabama
Christian Miller was a five-star prospect that didn’t have a ton of production at Alabama, but Mike Vrabel would probably like to add another coached-up Crimson Tide player to his defense.
83. PIT: Gary Jennings, WR, West Virginia
It’ll be interesting whenever the Steelers select a receiver given their awesome success drafting the position. West Virginia’s Gary Jennings could be their target this year.
84. KC: Trysten Hill, DT, Central Florida
There are concerns with Trysten Hill’s attitude after the way his college career at UCF ended, but the Chiefs have shown they aren’t afraid to take a chance on character-question guys.
85. BAL: Oshane Ximines, EDGE, Old Dominion
The Ravens must retool their defense a bit after losses during the offseason, and Oshane Ximines would be a nice fit in Baltimore.
86. HOU: Austin Bryant, DE, Clemson
Clemson defensive lineman Austin Bryant would add immediate depth on the defensive line of the Texans.
87. CHI: Rodney Anderson, RB, Oklahoma
Injuries are an obvious concern with Oklahoma running back Rodney Anderson, but he might be perfect in a committee backfield for Matt Nagy and the Bears.
88. DET: Michael Deiter, G, Wisconsin
Wisconsin offensive lineman Michael Deiter has a ton of college experience, which will make him an appealing option for teams like the Lions.
89. IND: Joe Jackson, DE, Miami (FL)
The Colts have back-to-back picks here, and they might go after a couple of pass rushers. First, Joe Jackson has great size and upside.
90. IND: Jaylon Ferguson, EDGE, Louisiana Tech
Jaylon Ferguson has the college production as the Louisiana Tech product has the most FBS sacks in history (45). Average athleticism could cause him to drop to this point.
91. DAL: Jaquan Johnson, S, Miami (FL)
The Cowboys have done a great job with their early-to-mid-round picks in recent years, and that could continue with playmaking Miami safety Jaquan Johnson.
92. LAC: Jarrett Stidham, QB, Auburn
The Chargers aren’t going to get impatient looking for a potential quarterback of the future, but talented Auburn quarterback Jarrett Stidham could be the perfect guy to develop behind Philip Rivers for a few years.
93. SEA: Amani Hooker, S, Iowa
Iowa safety Amani Hooker is another versatile defensive back in this year’s class, as the Seahawks would be a good fit for him.
94. NYJ: D’Andre Walker, EDGE, Georgia
The other New York team took Georgia edge Lorenzo Carter in the third round of last year’s draft, and it might be the Jets turn to get a Georgia edge in D’Andre Walker this year.
95. LAR: Zach Allen, DE, Boston College
Boston College’s Zach Allen can probably beef up and play defensive end in Wade Phillips’ defense.
96. NYG: Kendall Joseph, LB, Clemson
The Giants already added Dexter Lawrence in the first round of the draft, so they might add one of the guys that lined up behind him at Clemson in linebacker Kendell Joseph.
97. WAS: Yodny Cajuste, OT, West Virginia
The Redskins are set to Trent Williams at left tackle, bu Yodny Cajuste would be a good value for Washington late in the third.
98. NE: Jachai Polite, EDGE, Florida
Considered a first-round prospect a few months ago, Jachai Polite could be a steal at pick No. 98. The Patriots would be the team to get Polite’s potential out of him.
99. JAX: Isaiah Johnson, CB, Houston
The Jaguars already have a top-heavy cornerback group with plenty of depth, but Isaiah Johnson could be insurance in case the rocky relationship with Jalen Ramsey doesn’t work out.
100. LAR: Sean Bunting, CB, Central Michigan
A trade up for a cornerback should be in consideration for the Rams, but Sean Bunting could be a target if they keep their picks.
101. CAR: Anthony Johnson, WR, Buffalo
After parting ways with Devin Funchess in free agency, Anthony Johnson would give Carolina another big-framed target on the outside.
102. NE: Andy Isabella, WR, Massachusetts
Andy Isabella might go much higher than this, but the Patriots probably wouldn’t pass him up here if he’s still available.
103. BAL: Te’Von Coney, LB, Notre Dame
Te’Von Coney is a tough player that would fit in well with Baltimore to conclude the third round of the draft.
