NFL Mock Draft Day 2: Predicting second, third rounds

3:02 | NFL
Connor Cook, Noah Spence among NFL draft's best Day 2 prospects
Friday April 29th, 2016

As Day 2 of the 2016 NFL draft kicks off Friday evening, Myles Jack’s slide will be front and center among the notable storylines. If the abundant risk of taking him in Round 1 scared teams away, a race could be on for his services once Cleveland goes on the clock again at No. 32. Heck, the Browns could take Jack themselves and end all the drama right away.

Counting Jack, Round 2 could be heavy on defense. Several defenders projected to land in Thursday’s opening 31 picks failed to make the cut: DL Jarran Reed, DT Andrew Billings, DT A’Shawn Robinson, LB Reggie Ragland, CB Mackensie Alexander and Jack, to name a few. Based on the sheer numbers of it all, at least a couple of them could be in line for a lengthy wait again during Round 2.

There will be 67 picks made Friday, starting with the Browns (barring a trade). Here’s how it all might unfold:
