1 of 3

Hello, readers! It’s April, so you know what that means – mock drafts. Everyone has their mock draft, so I decided to do mine. Be sure to check out my first-round mock. Now for the second-round.

33. Jacksonville Jaguars – Sam Montgomery, DE, Louisiana State
After electing to not address the need for the pass rush in the first round, look for Jacksonville to address it here with their second pick. Sam Montgomery played well at LSU across from Barkevious Mingo, and the Jags will be happy to have him here.

34. San Francisco 49ers (from Chiefs) – Zach Ertz, TE, Stanford
Delanie Walker’s departure leaves a need for the 49ers to address at their second tight end position. Stanford product and former Jim Harbaugh player Zach Ertz would be a great fit in the 49er’s offense.

35. Philadelphia Eagles – EJ Manuel, QB, Florida State
Chip Kelly comes to the Eagles and will look to implement his fast paced offense. To do so, he’s going to need a fast quarterback. Michael Vick certainly is fast, be he’s getting old, and is not the long-term option for the Eagles. EJ Manuel will likely sit back and wait this year, but look for him to be playing in 2014.

36. Detroit Lions – Khaseem Greene, OLB, Rutgers
Detroit needs help on defense. After adding Mingo at number 11, look for Detroit to bolster their linebacking corps here.
