2011 NFL Draft: Round Two Mock Drafts, Projections

Round two starts up tonight at 6 p.m. ET and with the extra time here are some more mock drafts and best available player lists to look over instead of actually working during the day. SB Nation's Mocking the Draft has been all over the draft and here is their list of top 10 available players left on the board.

1 Da'Quan Bowers Clemson DE
2 Brandon Harris Miami CB
3 Ryan Mallett Arkansas QB
4 Ryan Williams Virginia Tech RB
5 Kyle Ruldolph Notre Dame TE
6 Andy Dalton TCU QB
7 Sam Acho Texas DE
8 Bruce Carter UNC LB
9 Brooks Reed Arizona DE
10 Titus Young Boise State WR

Boise State's Titus Young is a bit higher then I would have thought, but it looks like he is almost assured of beint taken in round two.

Here is another mock draft from Mocking The Draft:

35. Cincinnati - Andy Dalton, QB TCU

I am not as high on Dalton here, but after the run on quarterbacks yesterday, and all I love I hear Cincy's new offensive coordinator has for Dalton, they may take a shot here.

47. St. Louis - Titus Young, WR Boise State

A great offensive weapon to help their budding QB star

48. Oakland - Colin Kapernick, QB Nevada

He's fast and throws a terrific deep ball. How is this not Al Davis's guy?

SB Nation also has a round two mock draft out:

35. Cincinnati Bengals: Andy Dalton, QB, TCU. After being hyped as a potential Top 10 pick, Dalton has fallen into the second round, where it's unlikely he'll get past Jay Gruden's waiting arms.

41. Washington Redskins: Colin Kaepernick, QB, Nevada. I still think it's likely that the Redskins look for a developmental quarterback, and Kaepernick has considerable upside.

47. St. Louis Rams: Titus Young, WR, Boise State. The Rams do need more targets for Sam Bradford, and Titus Young - while perhaps talent-redundant with Donnie Avery - fits Josh McDaniels well.

Kaepernick to the Redskins is a new development since they have Donovan McNabb, but he is obviously not the long term situation. We will see if the Raiders really want Kaepernick and possibly trade up to get him.

Walter Football has put out a new mock draft for round two and three:

34. Buffalo Bills: Andy Dalton, QB, TCU
The Bills are seemingly interested in a quarterback. Think back to the infamous Andre Reed Tweet-gate. Or the fact that Christian Ponder tweeted "Buffalo" on Wednesday. The best quarterback available is Andy Dalton, and the Bills have shown interest in him. Chan Gailey coached Dalton in the Senior Bowl.

41. Washington Redskins: Colin Kaepernick, QB, Nevada
Mike Shanahan will draft a quarterback. Did you see Chris Berman's reaction when the Redskins drafted Ryan Kerrigan? He looked like he was having a stroke. Colin Kaepernick has unlimited upside. He also possesses the mobility that Shanahan likes out of his quarterbacks.

58. Baltimore Ravens: Titus Young, WR, Boise State
The Ravens need an upgrade at receiver, particularly a downfield threat to stretch the defense. Titus Young, one of the top players available, could become Baltimore's version of Mike Wallace.

70. Kansas City Chiefs: Chris Carter, DE/OLB, Fresno State
The Chiefs have only one reliable pass-rusher. Adding a solid complement across from Tamba Hali would take Kansas City's defense to the next level.

79. Miami Dolphins: Dontay Moch, DE/OLB, Nevada
The Dolphins will be looking for some pass-rushing help across from Cameron Wake. This could allow them to move Koa Misi inside. Dontay Moch is a project, but the Dolphins may think they can coach him up to be one of the next great pass-rushers in the NFL. 

In a top-heavy but thin pass-rushing draft class, someone like Chris Carter (16 TFL and 10 sacks in 2010) could emerge as a second-round pick. Carter had an outstanding 1.59 10-yard split in his 40-yard dash.

94. New York Jets: Greg Salas, WR, Hawaii
It doesn't seem like the Jets will be able to re-sign both Santonio Holmes and Braylon Edwards. If one walks, New York will need a new wideout.

I will keep an eye out for more mock draft and player projections and post when they appear.
