2015 NFL Draft - 2nd Round Draft

Who falls to the second round? Here are my thoughts for what could happen on Friday.

Yesterday, I came out with my final first round mock here
.

Below is a second round mock for Friday's NFL Draft. The second round is loaded, as there will be another run on offensive linemen, especially at the top of this round. Players like T.J. Clemmings (Pitt), D.J. Humphries (Florida), Jake Fisher (Oregon), Nelson Agholor (USC), Phillip Dorsett (Miami) and Shaq Thompson (Washington) are all still on the board.

1
Tennessee Titans

Height: 6'5
Weight:309
Hometown: Patterson, N.J.
College: Pitt
Class: 2014 SR
Position: OT
Rating:
Overall Rank: 37
Pos Rank: 5

Head Coach: Ken Whisenhunt
2014 Record: 2-14

ANALYSIS: Cornerback could be the pick here but ultimately Tennessee can't pass on Clemmings, an ideal bookend to last year's top pick Taylor Lewan. (QB Marcus Mariota was their pick in my final first round mock).

Position: OT
Rating:
Overall Rank: 43

Head Coach: Lovie Smith
2014 Record: 2-14

ANALYSIS: With Winston on board it's time to build up the offensive front. There are some quality players on the board here in tackles Jake Fisher, D.J. Humphries and Cedric Ogbuehi and every offensive guard. Drafting Humphries would allow the Bucs to move Demar Dotson back to right tackle. (Jameis Winston was their pick in my final first round mock).
