Here is our second mock draft. I’m hoping Donovan McNabb stays put for at least a week so I don’t have to make more drastic changes. Anyways, let me know if you think the updates are on or off.

1.     St. Louis (1-15) – Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma. Despite the top tier talent available at the DT position, the Rams are making it well known that they need a quarterback NOW.

2.     Detroit (2-14) – Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska. If he’s as good as he was at Nebraska, he will be one of the best defensive tackles of all-time.

3.     Tampa Bay (3-13) – Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma. Tampa loves the domino effect that helped them land McCoy instead of Eric Berry. Either way, it’s a win for the struggling defensive unit.

4.     Washington (4-12) –Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame. The domino effect once again shaping the first round. Expect Clausen to be the last QB taken in the first round, unless someone drafts Mr. Perfect, Tim Tebow.

5.     Kansas City (4-12) – Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma State. The pieces are starting to fall into place for the Kansas City Chiefs offensively. However, they will need an OT to protect Matt Cassel, who was sacked 42 times last year.

6.     Seattle (5-11) –. Bryan Bulaga, OT, Iowa. With two top-14 picks, expect one of the two to be used to bolster the offensive line.

7.     Cleveland (5-11) –Eric Berry, S, Tennessee. Berry had a great combine, showing he is the next big thing at safety. If he’s gone, they’ll get Joe Haden as a great consolation prize.

8.     Oakland (5-11) – Anthony Davis, OT, Rutgers. Dear Oakland, Please pick Anthony Davis. Your team needs serious help on draft day. Sincerely, Adam.

9.     Buffalo (6-10) –Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma. The tackles start to go on a run. Look for Trent Williams to go, or Bruce Campbell, depending on if the Bills get caught up in his combine numbers.

10.  Jacksonville (7-9) – Derrick Morgan, DE, Georgia Tech. The Jags managed to sack the opposing team’s QB only 14 times last year.

11.  Denver – from Chicago (7-9) – Rolando McClain, LB, Alabama. This is a bit of a reach here, but Denver’s defense needs a serious upgrade at linebacker.

12.  Miami (7-9) – Earl Thomas, S, Texas. The Dolphins need a great young player to head up the secondary. Thomas is their guy.

13.  San Francisco (8-8) – Joe Haden, CB, Florida. The biggest loser of Bradford going first will be Joe Haden. His poor performance at the combine didn’t help his cause either.

14.  Seattle – from Denver (8-8) – C.J. Spiller, RB, Clemson. Consider this draft a boost of “instant offense” for the Seahawks, who averaged 97.9 rushing yards per game last year.

15.  New York Giants (8-8) – Jason Pierre-Paul, DE/OLB, South Florida. A great fall to the G-Men. Their pass rush that won them the Super Bowl has vanished.

16.  Tennessee (8-8) – Dan Williams, DT, Tennessee. Tennessee’s defense was nothing compared to the unit a year ago. The difference? Not have a stud DT.

17.  San Francisco – from Carolina (8-8) – Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma State. The 49ers don’t need Dez Bryant, but how will he be passed up with the thought of him and Crabtree causing huge match-up problems across the board.

18.  Pittsburgh (9-7) – Mike Iupati, OG, Idaho. The Steelers need to seriously consider taking Iupati, as Big Ben continuously gets beat up year after year.

19.  Atlanta (9-7) – Sergio Kindle, DE/OLB, Texas. Kindle has the skills, savvy, and athleticism to play DE or OLB in the NFL.

20.  Houston (9-7) – Brian Price, DT, UCLA. Houston is out of positions of offense to draft weapons. Time for the defense to start pulling its weight.

21.  Cincinnati (10-6) – Jermaine Gresham, TE, Oklahoma. I think it’s been 10 years or so since the Bengals have had a good tight end. Someone find out for me please?

22.  New England (10-6) – Brandon Graham, DE/OLB, Michigan. For the Pats’ sake, I hope he falls to them. He is the perfect player for their defense.

23.  Green Bay (11-5) – Patrick Robinson, CB, Florida State. They have great corners, but they aren’t getting any younger.

24.  Philadelphia (11-5) – Taylor Mays, S, Southern Cal. The Eagles need to start somewhere on defense. This is a great upgrade. By the way Birds, have fun trying to get a top-42 draft pick in one of the deepest drafts ever for McNabb.

25.  Baltimore (9-7) – Devin McCourty, DB, Rutgers. McCourty had a great combine. Playing with Hall of Famers Ray Lewis and Ed Reed will help him ease into the league.

26.  Arizona (10-6) – Sean Weatherspoon, OLB, Missouri. Losing Karlos Dansby isn’t the easiest thing, but Weatherspoon will help out greatly.

27.  Dallas (11-5) – Bruce Campbell, OT, Maryland. The Cowboys have no urgent needs. Campbell is a project, but can be a Pro-Bowler.

28.  San Diego (13-3) – Ryan Mathews, RB, Fresno State. He showed great size and speed at the combine. I’m not saying he’s the next LT, but he’s the best available replacement

29.  New York Jets (9-7) – Golden Tate, WR, Notre Dame. An eventual replacement for Jericho Cotchery, he’ll provide a spark to a good, but unimpressive Jets’ offense.

30.  Minnesota (12-4) – Maurkice Pouncey, OL, Florida. Welcome to the first round, Maurkice. My only newcomer will go to the Vikings, who need more help on the OL then people think.

31.  Indianapolis (14-2) – Kyle Wilson, DB, Boise State. An athletic playmaker at Boise that can help on defense and on special teams.

32. New Orleans (13-3) – Terrence Cody, DT, Alabama. Cody showed up at the Alabama Pro Day at a tuned, sculpted 349. He’s no model, but he can make plays and create chaos in the trenches.
