SECOND ROUND

33           Houston:             Derek Carr, QB, Fresno St.

This is a mistake if Houston drafts a QB with the first pick in the second round. Expect the Texans to trade up and get Carr in the first round if he’s available (as first round draft picks can have better contract options for NFL football teams; with a 5th year OPTION), when 2nd round picks only have 4 year contracts, NO 5th year option. If Carr does bloom into a top rate QB, and Houston MIGHT have to franchise tag him in year 5, this could cost Houston an extra $15 to $20 million for one year.

  • jamfed

    …. Manziel?

    • Calman21

      I hope he is gone long before the Chargers pick.

      • Gunnar Martin

        Or maybe if he is there someone will want to trade up to get him?

        • Calman21

          Or that…I really don’t want him in a Chargers Uniform….although I wouldn’t mind him in the AFC West…give me a reason to cheer on other teams while they hit him.

          • Gunnar Martin

            You can relax bud, there’s no chance in the universe TT picks him. I pinky promise you from across the internet :)

      • jamfed

        If I’m the RAMS, I’d draft Manziel with the #2 pick.

        • Calman21

          Why, their QB situation isn’t desperate? They need to trade back and pick up a WR and a TE (or pick up Clowney and make their defense even better). They are likely to be able to pick up a solid QB later in the round. Manziel has bust or boom written all over him, too risky for a team that doesn’t really need it. Now the Jags, Raiders, Texans, Buccs, and possibly the Cards should all be looking at drafting a QB in the beginning of the first.

          • jamfed

            Every year, at this time, the Rams say they’re committed to Sam Bradford. WHY? He’s injury prone, makes a TON of money (CAP) and hasn’t done much since his rookie year.
            Sure I drafted him last year on my fantasy football team (as a sleeper QB, DEEP SLEEPER) and he got hurt, as usual.
            Getting rookie of the year 6 years ago has lost its luster (IMO). Jeff Fisher says he’s committed to Bradford too. Rams should have drafted RG3 last year, and continuing to trade back is not gonna win them any championships, especially in the NFC West.

            If the Rams beat the 49ers, Cardinals and the Seahawks, you are going the have to think OUTSIDE the box and find a QB that can create vs. operate.

          • Calman21

            Okay so RG3 is also injury prone and he is likely to have a short career if he continues playing the way he does. Also, he has this little problem where he can’t read an NFL level defense. They will get to renegotiate his contract soon enough, but to say hey I am going to replace an injury prone qb with a type of qb that is likely to start getting injured a lot (running qbs in general) isn’t exactly the best idea. Rams need passing weapons and a more solid offensive front line, both of which can be achieved by trading back. If the Rams are smart they either trade back, bolster their front line, or pick up Clowney (he would likely contribute to a monstrous defense that would help in the NFC West. You want to beat the Cards, Seahawks, and 49ers it will be with a power run game with limited passing. Those three teams eat passing teams alive (49ers you can pass on a bit more with less running).

          • jamfed

            I wouldn’t call RG3 Injury prone. He hasn’t missed start because of any injury, so no “prone-ness.” RG3 hasn’t played very well since blowing out his knee in the 2012 playoffs…

            Rams do need WR, agreed, but Tevon Austin was drafted last year and was top tier in the draft. Why would the Rams draft Austin before Cordarrell Paterson is beyond me. Patterson might be my favorite player I’ve ever watch college tape on…

            Out of the top 5 players in this draft, the Rams don’t exactly NEED any of them (other than QB). The Rams have 2 good pass rushers, a good D-Line, a 1st round QB. If i”m the Rams, I just take Sammy Watkins and stop getting tricky.

          • Calman21

            Austin was exciting but he is a smaller guy. CP would have been my pick too. I think Sammy Watkins would be a great pick and WRs are really what the Rams need at this point (although some OL help would certainly be nice, but they could get that trading back).

            RG3 is still not a good long term solution, the guy has issues reading defenses and his play style will end up getting him hurt a lot (If he can’t run he is way less valuable). He got hurt three times that I count in 2012 and was removed at the end of the season for fear of injury (and likely to up trade value for Cousins).

            I could see drafting a QB later in the first (early second round). But if I was going to go with anyone (early in the draft) it would be Bridgewater or Bortles. Manziel has boom or bust written all over him.

            Austin will be much better once the Rams have some legit WR threats. They draft a big body on the outside and that will open up the slot and short range passes for him to blow it up on.

          • jamfed

            I think Watkins would be a good pickup for the Rams.
            I didn’t like Manziel at first either. Too cocky, too flashy, not a 100% commitment, but the more and more I rethink him, the better I think he’ll be. But finding the right coach for Manziel is the trick.

    • Marcel West-Bailey

      What about him?

  • CALiFORNiAkiD

    Not liking this mock.

    1 – Jason Verrett
    2- Louis Nix
    3- Kyle Van Noy

    • 619chargers4life

      Wow Van Noy in the 3rd

    • 619chargers4life

      Never mind I see what u meant lol

    • BlueBoltFan

      I like Kyle Fuller better than Verrett, but otherwise I’m down with that.

      • CALiFORNiAkiD

        I can’t deny Verrett’s greatness anymore…who cares about his height.
        The more I watch Verrett…the more i realize, he’s the best CB in the entire draft.

        Fuller is to injury prone for me.

        • Sergio Quintero

          A trade up in the 2nd for Nix that might be intriguing, if he gets past the Pats he might drop quite a bit.

          • CALiFORNiAkiD

            Exactly.

          • Nick in PB

            Good call. I’m not sold on him in the first. He’s the best of what’s out there in a NT but I don’t see him as pro bowl talent.

        • BlueBoltFan

          I concede your point there. If we already had a #1 CB, he’d be my choice here. My only problem is that at 5’9″ Verrett can’t just be good (which he clearly is) he has to be really good, maybe rare, to overcome those disadvantages as he might be the best CB on the team.

          That said, Pagano’s system does play to his strengths.

    • Marcel West-Bailey

      Dude there’s no way Van Noy fall that far.

      • CALiFORNiAkiD

        I think he will.
        If we trade back expect us to grab Van Noy early in the 3rd Round.

        • BlueBoltFan

          I agree. Van Noy’s situation is similar to Clay Matthews’, a well rounded athletic OLB who drops because he’s not seen as a pass rush specialist. Not saying Van Noy will be come the kind of rusher Mathews is, but I think people will hesitate to pull the trigger earlier because of it. Though I can’t see him getting into the 3rd.

      • jamfed

        I have Van Noy #47, early second round

    • Sergio Quintero

      My mock for the chargers:
      1) Jason Verrett CB TCU
      2) Jordan Mathews WR Vanderbilt
      3) DeMarcus Lawrence OLB Boise St.
      4) Justin Ellis NT Lousiana Tech
      5) E.J. Gaines CB Missouri
      6) DeAnthony Thomas RB/WR Oregon
      7) Vinny Sunserri FS Alabama

      • Eli Rodriguez

        I’m starting to like Phillip Gaines more than Ej. But that a good mock.

        • Sergio Quintero

          Choose your solid zone specialist CB in the 5th and it should work, I would love to see Rashaad Reynolds there, seems more of 3-4 round guy though.

          • Eli Rodriguez

            I’m really hoping for fuller. He’s such a beast. Him and Verrett look like the best CBs in the draft.i can’t wait for the draft. I wanna see TT do miracles again.

          • Sergio Quintero

            Verrett/Fuller depends on how much they value speed to size, both are very polished but if both are there they will answer what they want more in a corner.

      • jamfed

        Love this scenario, even the OLB.
        EJ Gains will go late in the 3rd round, probably 4th. His stock is climbing BIG time.

        No O-LInemen?

        • Sergio Quintero

          I really like the guys from 1-4 if they get that great draft, I’m sure from round 5-7 they will get a depth Olineman.

          • Nick in PB

            I agree… O Lineman in the later rounds. Have to adress corner in the first 2 rounds. What I think is really going to happen is TT’s going to take the best player available, of need, in each round, even if it’s not the order we think it’s going to be. We have, what I would say, are 4 areas of need. CB, NT, WR, OL. Five if you count OLB. Wouldn’t you LOVE to see his draft board! I wonder how he ranks the people we all are thinking about.

        • Nick in PB

          Sergio, your draft makes a lot of sense. I know that you do your research as well. I like Verrett, would like Kyle Fuller even more. I think an an O Lineman somewhere in the last 2 rounds would be a good spot.

          • Sergio Quintero

            Can’t do all the needs Nick, and the chargers seem to like their current OLine, I think the Olineman comes no sooner than 3 round, and more likely around 4-6 as a depth player.

            The Verrett/Fuller question if both are there it depends on what you like in CB, if you like size Fuller is 6’0 190lbs 4.5 speed, Verrett 5’9 190lbs 4.35 speed, he’s more a finesse speed corner. Both are really instinctive and have excellent ball skills & route recognition.

            My feeling is that:
            First round its corner Verrett/Fuller
            2nd/3rd round WR or OLB (examples: Attaochu & Lattimore / Adams & Lawrence)
            4th/5th round OG depth, CB depth, NT (example: Rashaad Reynolds & Zach Kerr)

            Later in the draft they will add depth and get kick returner.

    • jamfed

      I’m aiming for accuracy vs. popularity. if an elite WR prospect is there in round one, the TT will pull the trigger. I hope Lee falls…

      • Sergio Quintero

        I have feeling that Telesco like Beckham & Cooks more than Lee, they seem more polished as route runners, but I’d be happy with either.

        • jamfed

          Really? I feel that Lee is more polished than OBJ and Cooks. Lee looks like “THE NATURAL” too me. He makes it look easy.

          …we just have to look at Telesco’s MENTOR’S history (Pollian). What has Pollian done, who does he target in 1st rounds??

          • Sergio Quintero

            Seem to read quite a bit on Lee being undisciplined with his routes and rounding off routes.

            With Lee its about getting the 2012 player, the 2013 player didn’t play like first rounder.

          • jamfed

            Lee had Barkley in 2012. He’s so good, Robert Woods left school early (in 2013) because Lee was taking all the glory (and Robert Wood is pretty good & knew he needed to cash in ASAP). Lee’s gonna be VERY good, as he makes his job look easy.

          • Sergio Quintero

            Polian was about solid productive players, the tape was always good with Polian players, sort of the opposite approach to the Al Davis Height/Weight/Speed specimen drafting school. Telesco is very much of that school, of the tape is king school of drafting.

            He seems very willing to take a slightly undersized, or not fast enough guy, and if the tape is good he will take him.

          • jamfed

            I’m not talking about production players. I’m talking about what poistion’s he drafts in the 1st round: CB’s and OL, and a WR or two.

    • jamfed

      LOVE THESE PICKS, but it’s a WISH mock…

    • jamfed

      Nix in the 2nd? Nix will probably be gone before #25. Think about how many 3-4 teams need a NT (like Green Bay, Philly, Tenn, Pitt, AZ… I think Nix is gone before #25

  • 619chargers4life

    I would be content

  • CALiFORNiAkiD

    I think Chargers are in perfect position to trade back.
    Derek Carr is going to be a hot commodity. Teams will come calling if he’s still on the board @25

    • 619chargers4life

      Agreed

    • Eli Rodriguez

      A trade back would be great. I’m hoping mail falls so someone trades back to get him.

    • jamfed

      Agreed! Plus, this is a very DEEP draft, meaning there are a lot of 1st round talent that will be drafted in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.

  • Sergio Quintero

    I think its solid mock, in terms of picks in general and the chargers, if BPA is the policy I can certainly buy Cooks as the pick at 25, all the people that wanted DeSean Jackson this guy is clone with less baggage.

    The one pick that doesn’t jive is Derek Carr to the Texans, I can’t buy trying to sell another Carr brother to that fanbase, but Garappolo instead of him, sure why not.

    • jamfed

      I’ll bet Carr goes a lot earlier in the 1st round. He’s fun to watch and might be the best QB in this class.

      • Sergio Quintero

        My comment is more related that the name Carr has very negative history in Houston

        • jamfed

          Houston wanted to like Carr. They didn’t like their O-Line. Houston had the worst O-LIne in the history of the NFL, for several years. Poor Carr was killed several times over…

  • sditalianman

    1. NT-Louis Nix, ND
    2. OLB-Kyle Van Noy, BYU
    3. CB-Dontae Johnson, NCSU
    4. WR-Cody Latimer, IU
    Next three picks I’d look for o-line depth & probably another corner

    • Sergio Quintero

      I think Latimer pushed himself into probably the 3rd round, as he had a heck of a pro day, maybe switch Johnson for Latimer.

      • sditalianman

        True, another receiver I like Is Jeff Janis, SVSU. He has the height, speed and passion for the game that TT loves to see in players, looks like a nice fit. If not Latimer or Moncrief I’d take Janis!

        • Sergio Quintero

          Janis the tools are tempting, the thing that makes me nervous he’s got mediocre to below average hands (he body catches a lot), but 6’3 220 lbs with 4.4 speed doesn’t grow on trees.

          The chargers are taking a WR most likely somewhere between 2-4, and if Beckham/Lee/Cooks is there at 25, I can certainly make the argument that either one of those 3 is the BPA over the corners and Nix.

          • jamfed

            I’m a HUGE Davante Adams (WR, Fresno State) fan!

    • CALiFORNiAkiD

      Dontae Johnson one of the most underrated players.

      • Gunnar Martin

        Is this the guy that you said (maybe someone else, idk) shut down Jordan Matthews?

        • CALiFORNiAkiD

          Yes.

          • Nick in PB

            EJ Gaines shut down Mike Evans. 9 yards receiving on 2 catches.

    • jamfed

      Geez, Van Noy is getting a lot of love here. Hmmmm, pass…

      • Gunnar Martin

        Can’t wait till he proves you wrong in the NFL!

  • Eli Rodriguez

    1st – CB Fuller
    2nd- OLB Van No
    3rd- NT Daquan Jones
    4th- WR Bruce Ellington
    5th- CB Phillip Gaines
    6th- WR Brandon Coleman
    7th- KR DeAnthony Thomas
    This Draft would help the chargers enormously. What do you guys think?

    • kris

      1. Fuller
      2. Van Noy
      3. Jones
      4. Cyril Richardson
      5. Street
      6. D Thomas
      7. BPA

      • jamfed

        Van Noy to start? …i don’t think so

        • Nick in PB

          Plus, I doubt he will be available that late in the second round. I do LOVE Fuller in the first though.

          • jamfed

            Fuller play a half a season last year. he’s too much of a freelancer, free spirit. He wants to roam around and make plays, vs. just doing his job. I do like Fuller, but as a 2nd round pick, not a 1st rounder…

    • Sergio Quintero

      I like it, very solid, I would be very happy pick 1-2, not a big fan Ellington seems raw, will help in kick returns.

      Coleman doesn’t make the 6th round if he does, awesome.

      • Eli Rodriguez

        Yeah I don’t know about Coleman. But I think they def have to draft 2 CB and 2 WR.

        • Sergio Quintero

          I’m sure they want to take a WR that can challenge Brown for the starting spot, 2-3 you probably will find that, 4 is stretching that concept.

          Guys that fit that bill
          2: Mathews, Robinson, Adams
          3: Moncrief, Richardson, Bryant, Landry

          • jamfed

            I like all these guys at WR. BUT, I’m trying to translate Telesoc and McCoy about drafting more SPEED. the only blazers here are Moncrief, Richardson and maybe Lattimore (yet Adams is my fav and I hope SD can get him in the 2nd)

      • jamfed

        Fuller, Ellington and Thomas all could return punts and kicks…

    • jamfed

      I like your mock… I’m not a fan of Van Noy though… Coleman is HUGE

      • Eli Rodriguez

        What don’t you see in Van Noy? He has great size for a linebacker and is pretty qjick. When BYU used him as a pass rusher he was amazing. Last year he didn’t put up the number he did the year before because they used him more in coverage. He has the ability to do whatever you need him to do. He is my favorite player from this draft.

        • jamfed

          I’m sorry, I do like Van Noy, but SD has 7 OLB’s. Adding Van Noy would equal 8.
          Van Noy is quick, fast and a pursuer, but he tends to dodge traffic than to go through it… IMO: he’s the type of player that if he does have a leg injury, he’s game is over. He relies too much on his speed, not technique or pass rushing moves…

    • jcrisp

      That right there just made my day, I your mock alot but thats all it is a mock so we will have to wait till may 8th

      • Eli Rodriguez

        Thanks man. I’m pissed they moves the Draft to the 8th.

    • Scott Lee Miller

      That is a total dream draft.. Come on football gods shine on us Bolts…

      • Eli Rodriguez

        Let just hope we get lucky.

  • gpack17

    sorry but not a big fan of this mock…i like the 3rd round pick here..but not a fan of cooks..hes smaller just like royal but his speed is the only thing thats getting him into the first round…he runs like tavon austin sure but the same kind of production? dont see it..in round 2 i wouldnt see joyner as a day 1 starter at corner when a lot of scouts are saying they dont know if he is a corner or a safety. To be honest I would rather have seen Jean-Baptiste or Trent Murphy there.

    In all honesty, since the draft is deep in olb and wr, I could see us going Guard in round 1 or nose or corner..i would like to get a tackle early as well but no rush..we have dunlap who played well and sure he has injury concerns, but there are 5 legit 1st round left tackles going into next years draft that we could choose from.

    • jamfed

      …I’m only thinking how McCoy or Telesco would be thinking with their 1st round pick. I’m thinking WEAPON in the first.

  • gpack17

    1. Xavier Sua Filo/David Yankey
    2. Kyle Van Noy/Trent Murphy
    3. Donte Moncrief/Martavious Bryant/Cody Lattimer
    4. Louchiez Purifoy/Antone Exum
    5. Justin Ellis (NT)/Caraun Reid
    6. Deanthony Thomas/Brandon Coleman
    7. Aaron Colvin/Gabe Ikard

    Fills our starting guard spot, gives us a solid olb, starting wr potential, cb with potential and athleticism, big bodied nose tackle, kick returner or tall receiver with potential, and a possible lucky pick at corner or backup center…

    • Gunnar Martin

      This would be fricken awesome!

      1. assuming Clary is cut, not restructured right? Who drafts guards in the first round? Ekkk!
      2. OLB is already FULL and SD has like 8 OLB’s under contract.
      3. I do like Moncrief a lot and Bryant is a good prospect too
      4. Purifoy will be gone in the 2nd or 3rd round (and I’m not familiar with Exum
      …So I like your 3rd, 5th, 6th and 7th Round picks!

      • Nick in PB

        Exum is a decent corner but was injured last season or part of it. Pretty physical. I’d go with EJ Gaines in the 4th. He fits our system well, also very physical.

    • jamfed

      This is a great draft and covers all needs except DE. XSF seems like a 2nd rounder to me… but i’m old school and draft OG’s later. I’d take Cyrus Kouandjio over XSF (or any left tackle prospect).

  • Jay

    1. Louis Nix – NT, ND
    2. Demarcus Lawrence – OLB, Boise State
    3. Keith McGill – CB, Utah
    4. Cody Latimer – WR, IU

    I find it a bit hard to see Gilbert falling that far and my friend who works for the Dolphins said they need a corner but more importantly they need a line and a MLB. So they won’t be drafting a corner in the first round. However if Gilbert does fall that far…well he won’t but it’s nice to think about.

    • jamfed

      Prior to the combine, Gilbert was the #3 rated CB. I still think he is. He’s FAST and lean, but not a top TEN guy. He SHOULD be there at 25, but he won’t.
      Dolphins need three O-linemen, but can find vets. Ellerbee and Wheeler LB’s? Dynamos!

      • Marcel West-Bailey

        Keyword: Prior. Combine and Pro days are important to scouts and gm’s. No, they will not be the defining factor but they play an important part. Gilbert is, without a doubt, the best corner in the draft. He’s got the all around skills needed to play and unlike Verrett there is no place where he has to compromise. Don’t get me wrong. I love Verrett. He’s my favorite corner in the draft. But his lack of size, not necessarily to get jump balls but even to tackle big strong receivers, is a place where Gilbert doesn’t have issues. The Lions have a great need for a corner and at the 10th pick it makes no sense to draft someone else other than him.

        • jamfed

          LOL, NO keyword, here. It’s Gilbert’s forty time that escalated him to TOP CB (in the media). I like Dennard the best…
          Lions traded up for SLAY last year in the 2nd round, and they have Houston as starting CB’s. Not exactly a weakness. They need secondary HELP, but really need Safety help and what I think they need the most is COVER LINEBACKER.

          • Marcel West-Bailey

            If Gilbert’s 40 time was the reason he was vaulted to the top of the list Verrett would be right behind him because their times were nearly the same. But Verrett is still put behind Dennard. I’m not quite sure where you saw it but going into the combine Gilbert was seen as the best corner and coming out was no different. Not to mention he returns kicks, something the other two top corners don’t do. Detroit’s pass defense was below average. They were literally giving yards to other teams. The numbers speak for themselves. Houston was the only corner who did much of anything and you can’t count on Slay considering he had little to no play time last year.

            2014 NFL Draft, Detroit Lions selEvery year, I consider
            the Lions to draft a CB in the first round, and they never ever do. I was
            shocked that they traded up last year to draft Darius Slay from Mississippi
            State (as I had Slay as a 3 round prospect), but I liked Slay in 2013 draft. *(Plus
            he ran a 4.3 forty @ 6′ 190#, and might have been better than his college counterpart/nationally
            recognized Jonathan Banks).

            Houston/Slay will be
            the starting secondary in Detroit 2014.

            Detroit would draft free safety Clinton-Dix before Gilbert and 10th
            overall is too high for Clinton-Dix (and most safeties).

            Gilbert’s projected to be drafted around #20 to #35. He’s good, but not a top
            ten prospect what so ever…

            Before you discount the CJ Mosely pick (to Detroit at #10), take a look at all
            of Detroit’s linebackers.

            …by far, their missing
            link and largest need. Mosely is a great
            prospect, will have an immediate impact from day one. I can also see OT Taylor
            Lewan being drafted here, but Detroit’s offenses is very good, and the defense
            needs a superstar.

          • rowdyran

            THe way i see it is Gilbert is the best all around corner. Dennard is the best ball hawk. And roby is the hardest hitter

    • Julien Bélair

      It’s just here…. no he won’t fall that far :P

      • Marcel West-Bailey

        I agree. I can’t see him falling past Detroit.

        • Julien Bélair

          I agree… I will post a mock draft very soon and there will be some surprises

  • rowdyran

    If roby is available when we pick in the second I would shit my pants. By far the hardest hitting cb in this draft. Him and addae would wreck shop. Honestly I would consider using the 1st on him. But I do like Joyner in the 2nd as well. I like the pick at wr in the first but if we are to take a wr in the first I want lee. He had a down year due to injuries but the year prior over 1700 yards and 14 tds… He will turn out to be the best wr in this draft. Hes being slept on.

    • jamfed

      I will too..,
      and I want Lee too.
      I hope SD targets the BEST CB in the 2nd round and Roby COULD be there.

      • rowdyran

        If lee is available at 25 and we pass I would be extremely confused. He runs way faster than his 40 time. Dude is a beast. And roby in the second would be a gift but one can wish right?

  • Gunnar Martin

    I have the gut feeling that both Cody Latimer and Xavier Su’a-Filo will find their way onto our team. The question is how high we’ll have to take Latimer since his stock has started to rise recently.

    • Sergio Quintero

      Seems like he’s a 3rd round pick and rising.

      • Gunnar Martin

        Yep. Hard to tell how much more he will rise considering the plethora of receivers still ahead of him. Hope we get him anyhow.

  • OcChargerFan

    1. Kyle Fuller CB Virginia Tech (Instant Starter)
    2. Martavis Bryant WR Clemson (Starting behind K. Allen)
    3. Jackson Jeffcoat OLB/DE Texas (Compete with Johnson/Freeney)
    4. Justin Ellis NT Louisiana Tech (Compete with Lissemore)
    5. Trai Turner OG Louisiana State (Depth)
    6. Aaron Colvin CB Oklahoma (Potential significant playing time when healthy)
    7. Corey Linsley C Ohio State (Practice squad/Possible Hardwick replacement)

    • jamfed

      I like this…
      Bryant might be a little EARLY, but if you like him, GET HIM A ROUND EARLY (like Marcus Gilchrist)
      Colvin? bah… ACL’s take 1 full year to heal.

      • Gunnar Martin

        Not anymore they don’t. He tore it in January, so there is a legitimate chance he gets some playing time in this season.

  • jamfed

    ANY COMMENTS ON MY 6 MONTH OLD SON’S PHOTO???
    (He’s three now, lol)

  • Nick in PB

    Pursue QB Darick Carr? WTF? Trade back to take a QB in the first round… I don’t think so. There’s many players we could take trading back in the first but a QB isn’t one of them. Explain please.
