Pick #26 Seattle Seahawks:
Takkarist McKinley, DE, UCLA
Will the Seahawks trade Richard Sherman? Possible. For now they need to draft someone and a lot of speculation will hinge on whether they draft a corner or not. For now they wait. The Seahawks are close to getting back into the final game of the year but they need to get better on the edge and McKinley will help.
Pick #27 Kansas City Chiefs:
Dalvin Cook, RB, FSU
The Chiefs have a speed demon in Tyreek Hill but they need a steady running back to compliment him. With Jamaal Charles now gone the team could look to add Cook who would add yet another weapon on offense. KC could go QB but I don’t think they are high on Watson and it’s too early for Kizer. DE and LB are also options.
Pick #28 Dallas Cowboys:
Kevin King, CB, Washington
King could very well be off the board by this pick. Many teams ahead of Dallas need corners. Just maybe not as much as Dallas does. The Cowboys came close last year but despite their NFC best record of 13 wins they still came up short in the end. With Atlanta likely to challenge again, they need a corner who can cover those types of receivers.
Pick #29 Green Bay Packers:
Taco Charlton, DE, Michigan
The Packers are in major need of an edge rushing defensive end and T.J. Watt could very well be that player here as many mocks have shown. But with Charlton still on the board and perhaps a little less knee concerns, Charlton makes more sense.
Pick #30 Pittsburgh Steelers:
T.J. Watt, OLB/DE, Wisconsin
The Steelers could go in several directions but they tend to like drafting linebackers and edge rushers early. Watt would be a solid fit in the Steelers system.
Pick #31 Atlanta Falcons
Jordan Willis, DE, Kansas State
Originally I had the Dolphins dropping down here and taking Willis and the Falcons moving up to take Reddick. Willis is a solid linebacker who will help the Falcons defense against the run.
Pick #32 New Orleans
Jabril Peppers, S/LB/ST
Peppers could drop into the 2nd round and very well may after it was disclosed on Monday that he had a diluted drug test sample at the NFL Combine. Peppers isn’t like Reuben Foster who carries an attitude issue with him. Peppers would be a good fit with New Orleans and give Sean Payton some versatility on defense.
Remaining talent available in round two:
Ryan Ramczyk – OL – Wisconsin
Deshaun Watson – QB – Clemson
Zach Cunningham – LB – Vanderbilt
Adoree Jackson – CB – USC
Raekwon McMillan – LB – Ohio State
Charlie Harris – DE – Missouri
Garrett Boles – OT – Utah
DeShone Kizer – QB – Notre Dame
And anyone that I forgot about in round one….:)
