The NFL Draft will resume tonight at 7:00 eastern, that is one our earlier than last nights affair and will play out the second and third rounds. The Miami Dolphins will pick 11th tonight and there is still a lot of talent on the board.

While it’s almost inconceivable that Myles Jack will fall to the 11th position the same would have been said last night about Laremy Tunsil. What the Dolphins have to do is not panic and let the early second round play out in front of them. It’s still too costly to move up for any player.
Here is a look at a 1-11 mock draft for round two.
1: Cleveland Browns:
Myles Jack – LB: At some point the Browns need to make a pick after acquiring a lot of extra picks by trading down. I seriously do not believe that the Browns will make a pick here but I have no idea who is going to jump up but Jack should be off the board with the first selection.
2: Tennessee Titans:
Kevin Dodd: DE: It’s amazing to me that the Titans were able to move back in round one then move up in round one and still get a lot of picks and an offensive tackle. The Titans still have needs and Kevin Dodd sliding into round two make a lot of sense for a team that needs to get better off the edge.
3: Dallas Cowboys:
Mackensie Alexander: The Cowboys passed on Jalen Ramsey and still need a cornerback. Alexander is at the top of the day two boards after seven came off the board on Thursday night. Don’t be surprised however if Dallas isn’t the team picking in the first spot of round 2.
4: San Diego Chargers:
Jason Spriggs – OT: The Chargers passed on Laremy Tunsil and went defensive end. They still need an offensive tackle and Spriggs makes the most sense with the 4th pick in round two.
5: Baltimore Ravens:
Michael Thomas: WR: The Ravens need to get better at wide-receiver and now that they have better protection for Joe Flacco they need to get him more weapons. Thomas was considered a late first to early second pick and would fit in nicely with the Ravens offense. Don’t rule out defensive help however.
6: Kansas City Chiefs:
A’Shawn Robinson – DT: The Chiefs could use linebacker help but it’s thinned considerably. Robinson is a dominate run stopping tackle and fits a need for the Chiefs who moved out of round one in a trade with the 49’ers.
7: Jacksonville Jaguars:
Max Tuerk – C: This pick comes with the caveat that Jack is off the board. If he is not, Jack lands here and the Jaguars may very well trade up for him. They like him that much. What they also need is a center and Tuerk is the best still left on the board. Another option could be Cody Whitehair who would play guard. Don’t rule out Reggie Ragland here either.
8: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Noah Spence – DE: The Buc’s added their corner in round one and now will shift focus to the front seven. Spence has some off-field character concerns and because of that the Buc’s could go with Emmanuel Ogbah here instead.
9: New York Giants
Reggie Ragland – LB: Ragland was considered a sure bet day one pick but he falls to round two and the Giants would love he falls to nine.
10: Chicago Bears
Kendall Fuller – CB: The Bears got the edge rusher they needed when they traded up in round one for Leonard Floyd now they will turn to the offensive line, wide-receiver, or secondary and secondary is the pick here. Fuller passed all his medical evaluations post-Combine and is ready to start practicing soon.
11: Miami Dolphins
Xavien Howard – CB: It’s not an ideal situation for the Dolphins but they desperately need to fix the corner position. The first round of the draft played out surprisingly well for the Dolphins when Tunsil fell but the 2nd round won’t do the same. The Dolphins would be smart to try and trade down here because they could get Howard later in the mid-slots of the 2nd round.
Because of their need at corner the Dolphins will pass on running back Derrick Henry, defensive linemand Jarran Reed, and linebacker Su’a Cravens.
Howard isn’t the Dolphins portotype corner. He is only 5’6″ and has questionable long duration speed that would prohibit him from keeping up with longer routes. He is however good at the point of contact and has quick feet that allows him to turn well with receivers.
