Over the next few days 31 NFL fans will participate in a live mock draft event. Their goal? To select the best players available for their respective franchises. There’s only one team in need of a general manager.
Your Denver Broncos.
Following the Broncos selections at 9 and 40, the Mile High Mock resumed on Sunday. What follows are picks 41 through 70 with a couple of thoughts from yours truly. My hope is that you find it informative and fun to consider what the Broncos should do at 40th overall.
After you vote, be sure to check back tomorrow at 6 EST to see who will wear orange and blue!
2.9 Detroit Lions - Eric Stokes - CB - Georgia
2.10 New York Giants - Jackson Carman - OT - Clemson
2.11 San Francisco 49ers - Jabril Cox - LB - LSU
When Taylor Kothe was reached for comment he spoke about the realities facing the Niners.
“The 49ers have enough overall depth to indulge a long term need in round 2, where Jabril Cox can be a long term starter with increasingly valuable coverage ability in a LB group that has a lot of contracts expiring after the 2021 & 2022 seasons.”
2.12 Dallas Cowboys - Richie Grant - S - UCF
2.13 Jacksonville Jaguars - Pat Freierumuth - TE - Penn State
2.14 New England Patriots - Jamin Davis - LB - Kentucky
I was fortunate to have a chance to speak with the Patriots’ Keagan Stiefel who could hardly contain his excitement over New England’s luck.
“Once again the rest of the NFL let’s Bill Belichick get his hands on the best athlete in the draft.
Like they’ve done with Jamie Collins, Kyle Dugger, and Josh Uche before, the Patriots select the best athlete available in round two in an effort to make the defense more versatile.
Jamin Davis and his 9.93 Relative Athletic Score (via. @MathBomb) cover all of the bases the team looks for in their ‘move’ linebackers.”
2.15 Los Angeles Chargers - Elijah Molden - DB - Washington
2.16 Las Vegas Raiders - Wyatt Davis - iOL - Ohio State
2.17 Arizona Cardinals - Najee Harris - RB - Alabama
2.18 Miami Dolphins - Nick Bolton - LB - USC
2.19 Washington Football Team - Kadarius Toney - WR - Florida
2.20 Chicago Bears - Kellen Mond - QB - Texas A&M
2.21 Tennessee Titans - Jevon Holland - S - Oregon
I did try to call the Titans’ Joe Mahoney and it went to voicemail.
2.22 Indianapolis Colts - Rondale Moore - WR - Purdue
2.23 Pittsburgh Steelers - Travis Etienne - RB - Clemson
2.24 Seattle Seahawks - Amon-Ra St. Brown - WR - USC
2.25 Los Angeles Rams - Creed Humphrey - iOL - Oklahoma
2.26 Baltimore Ravens - Joseph Ossai - ED - Texas
2.27 Cleveland Browns - Ronnie Perkins - ED - Oklahoma
2.28 New Orleans Saints - Davis Mills - QB - Stanford
2.29 Buffalo Bills - Tyson Campbell - CB - Georgia
2.30 Green Bay Packers - Amari Rodgers - WR - Clemson
2.31 Kansas City Chiefs - Brady Christensen - OT - BYU
I had a chance to catch up with speak with Eric Martin about the Chiefs’ selection.
“The Chiefs needed younger talent upgrades on the o-line. Brady Christiensen brings several years of offensive line playing experience from a system that regularly utilizes RPO’s at BYU so he is a great fit for Kansas City. We also couldn’t contain Andy Reid’s excitement at drafting a fellow BYU alumni who played the same position he played.”
2.32 Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Levi Onwuzurike - DL - Washington
3.1 Jacksonville Jaguars - Alim McNeil - DL - NC State
3.2 New York Jets - Quinn Meinerz - iOL - UW-Whitewater
When I had a chance to speak with New York’s Randall he sounded pretty excited about the Jets’ pick.
The NYJ need to add to a weak OL, this pick gives them some flexibility to move McGovern to G or have him stay at C. Max dominated Sr. Bowl and appears to be leaping draft boards since! Great fit for a young growing offense and a rookie QB for years to come.
3.3 Houston Texans - Landon Dickerson - iOL - Alabama
3.4 Atlanta Falcons - Kelvin Joseph - CB - Kentucky
3.5 Cincinnati Bengals - Payton Turner - ED - Houston
3.6 Philadelphia Eagles - Aaron Robinson - CB - UCF
3.7 Denver Broncos
