Second-Round Mock Draft (cont.)
 
53LBDaryl WashingtonTCUSr.6-2230
Having helped their passing game, the Patriots turn their attention to find the best available 3-4 outside linebacker with a little talent for the pass rush.
54DECarlos DunlapFloridaJr.6-6277
The Bengals need more edge rush from their defensive line, and Dunlap is an obvious talent whose off-field, character issues dropped him down to the second half of the second round.
55OLVladimir DucasseMassachusettsSr.6-5332
You know how Andy Reid feels about his linemen. In Ducasse he has a big, athletic prospect who can start helping the Eagles at guard and grow into a future starter at tackle.
56CBBrandon GheeWake ForestSr.6-0192
The Packers still need to get younger at cornerback and Ghee gives them an insurance policy in case veteran Al Harris isn't all the way back early in 2010.
57DTTerrence CodyAlabamaSr.6-4354
The Ravens simply do not pass on under-valued talent, and the big guy from Nick Saban's program adds a quality run-stuffer to the Baltimore defensive line.
58OLBRicky SappClemsonSr.6-4252
The signing of Joey Porter is a short-term fix only. Sapp can play in space and bring a little heat from the outside in the pass rush.
59SNate AllenSouth FloridaSr.6-1207
The Cowboys liked Allen a little bit as potential first-round material, so they're going to love finding him still there for the taking in the second. Allen fills a big need for Dallas, and he's got more value than any of the offensive tackle prospects at this point.
60WRDamian WilliamsSouthern CalJr.6-1197
With no pass-rushing defensive end still deserving of this slot, the Seahawks look past that need and take Williams, who gets to reunite with one Peter Carroll in Seattle.
61OLBKoa MisiUtahSr.6-3251
The Jets are having one of those offseasons where everything just seems to fall into place. They get Kyle Wilson, one of the top two or three cornerback in the draft, at No. 29, and now Misi, an ideal 3-4 outside backer with rush skills, drops in their laps at 61. With Jason Taylor's age and Vernon Gholston's invisibility, Misi is a no-brainer.
62GJon AsamoahIllinoisSr.6-4305
A cornerback like Oklahoma's Dominique Franks or a safety (LSU's Chad Jones or Georgia Tech's Morgan Burnett) could be tempting here, because Minnesota's secondary remains its defensive weak link. But Asamoah is too highly rated to pass on, and Steve Hutchinson can't play forever.
63DTLamarr HoustonTexasSr.6-3305
The Colts would be thrilled to find an athletic 4-3 defensive tackle like Houston near the bottom of the second round. If they think offensive tackle here, one intriguing prospect is Hillsdale's Jared Veldheer.
64OLBNavorro BowmanPenn StateJr.6-1242
The Saints went cornerback in Patrick Robinson in the first round, so the champs have still got that Scott Fujita-created hole to fill at outside linebacker, where the need to get younger and more athletic is obvious.
