2015 NFL Mock Draft 2.0: 2nd Round

3 of 4

47.) Miami Dolphins – DT Carl Davis, Iowa

There are rumors the Dolphins will release DT Randy Starks, DT Jared Odrick is free agent, and DT Earl Mitchell was a disappointment last season. Whatever happens, the Phins need depth at the DT position and Davis has the potential to be an All-Pro if he can be more consistent.

48.) San Diego Chargers – C/OG Cameron Erving, Florida St

Long time Chargers center Nick Hardwick has announced his retirement leaving them without a competent replacement at the position. Erving has the athleticism to play almost anywhere on the O-line and could start at center as a rookie for the Bolts.

49.) Kansas City Chiefs – WR Breshad Perriman, UCF

Alex Smith rarely throws the ball more then 10-15 yards and a receiver like Perryman who has the strength to shuck DBs on short routes and the ability to make something happen after the catch is a great fit.

50.) Buffalo Bills – RB Amer Abdullah, Nebraska

C.J. Spiller is free agent, Fred Jackson is old, and Bryce Brown was a disappointment last season. The Bills don’t have a decent QB on the roster so will need to run the ball well. Abdullah is one of my favorite players in the draft with elite quickness, change-of-direction ability, good vision, and surprising strength for his size.

51.) Houston Texans – DE Mario Edwards Jr, Florida St

Edwards could give the Texans a pass rush on the other side of the line from J.J. Watt. With the addition of Edwards and the return of a healthy Clowney next season, the Texans defense could be a force to be reckoned with.

52.) Philadelphia Eagles – OLB Danielle Hunter, LSU

Free agent OLB Brandon Graham is rumored to be leaving for a 4-3 scheme which would leave a hole at the OLB position. Hunter is a solid run stopper, has an innate ability to get his hands in passing lanes, and has the athleticism and potential to be an effective pass rusher.

53.) Cincinnati Bengals – DE Nate Orchard, Utah

The Bengals D-line fell apart last year but the additions of Malcolm Brown and Orchard could fix things in a hurry. Orchard has a powerful punch, quick first step, and the non-stop motor needed to be an effective pass rusher in the NFL.

54.) Detroit Lions – CB Quentin Rollins, Miami OH

New DC Teryl Austin somehow built a competent secondary around a group that was one of the worst in the league in 2013. It was impressive, but there just isn’t much talent in the Lions secondary and they badly need some upgrades. Rollins only played football for one season in college, but had 7 interceptions and showed plenty of potential. With the instruction of Austin, a former defensive backs coach, I could see Rollins becoming a Pro Bowl caliber player early in his career.

55.) Arizona Cardinals – ILB Paul Dawson, TCU

Dawson’s stock dropped after a poor combine, but his game tape is very impressive and the Cardinals really need help at the ILB position. Last year’s starter Larry Foote has already retired, recent 2nd round pick Kevin Minter has been a disappointment, and Daryl Washington may or may not be suspended this year which leaves the Cards with a gaping hole at the position.
