The first round of the 2017 NFL Draft is now in the books. There were a few big surprises, and a few interesting trades, leading to a very intriguing look for the second round. This is how I expect things to play out based on Thursday’s results, as I lay out a second round mock draft for 2017.

1 (33) Green Bay Packers (from Cleveland Browns)

Joe Mixon, RB, Oklahoma

Mixon is, by many accounts, the most talented player still available in the draft. Furthermore, the Packers need a new running back following the departure of Eddie Lacy to Seattle. There couldn’t be a more perfect match as a potential backfield option for Aaron Rodgers.

2 (34) Seattle Seahawks (from San Fransisco 49ers)

Cam Robinson, OT, Alabama

The Seahawks desperately need to revamp their offensive line. Cornerback Kevin King could be a possibility here as well, but Robinson still being on the board may prove too tempting.

3 (35) Jacksonville Jaguars

Forrest Lamp, OG, Western Kentucky

Drafting Leonard Fournette in the first round was a great move for the Jaguars. But, without some blocking up front, he isn’t going to accomplish much. Enter, Lamp.

4 (36) Chicago Bears

Kevin King, CB, Washington

Arguably, the Bears’ biggest need in this draft was in the secondary, but they went with a quarterback in the first round. The Bears only recorded eight interceptions in 2017, so the ball hawking King should fill a huge need.

5 (37) Los Angeles Rams

Josh Jones, S, North Carolina State

The Rams need an enforcer in the secondary, and the 6’1, 220 pound Jones is just the man for the job.

6 (38) Los Angeles Chargers

Obi Melifonwu, S, Connecticut

Melifonwu should not have lasted this long, by most accounts. But, he did, so the freakishly athletic, versatile defensive back should find a new home with the secondary-needy Chargers.

7 (39) New York Jets

DeShone Kizer, QB, Notre Dame

How Kizer managed to fall to the seventh pick of the second round still baffles me, but the Jets won’t be complaining. Josh McCown is not the answer, and neither is Bryce Petty or Christian Hackenberg.

8 (40) Carolina Panthers

Budda Baker, S, Wahsington

The Panthers need an explosive presence in the secondary. Baker might be a bit undersized, but very few safeties in this draft can match his aggression, play speed, and instincts.

9 (41) Cincinnati Bengals

Alvin Kamara, RB, Tennessee

There has been a lot of talk about the Bengals picking up a running back in the second round. The talk has primarily centered around former Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon, but with him off the board the Bengals will likely go with Kamara.

10 (42) New Orleans Saints

Sidney Jones, CB, Washington

11 (43) Philadelphia Eagles

Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State

12 (44) Buffalo Bills

Zay Jones, WR, East Carolina

13 (45) Arizona Cardinals

Chidobe Awuzie, CB, Colorado

14 (46) Indianapolis Colts

Malik McDowell, DL, Michigan State

15 (47) Baltimore Ravens

Curtis Samuel, WR/RB, Ohio State

16 (48) Minnesota Vikings

Cooper Kupp, WR, Eastern Washington

17 (49) Washington Redskins

Marcus Williams, S, Utah

18 (50) Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Quincy Wilson, CB, Florida

19 (51) Denver Broncos

Jake Butt, TE, Michigan

20 (52) Cleveland Browns (From Tennessee Titans)

Davis Webb, QB, California

21 (53) Detroit Lions

JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR, USC

22 (54) Miami Dolphins

Dan Feeney, G, Indiana

23 (55) New York Giants

Carl Lawson, DE, Auburn

24 (56) Oakland Raiders

Zach Cunningham, LB, Vanderbilt

25 (57) Houston Texans

Carlos Watkins, DT, Clemson

26 (58) Seattle Seahawks

Chris Wormley, DT, Michigan

27 (59) Kansas City Chiefs

Tim Williams, LB, Alabama

28 (60) Dallas Cowboys

Fabian Moreau, CB, UCLA

29 (61) Green Bay Packers

DeMarcus Walker, DE, Florida State

30 (62) Pittsburgh Steelers

Desmond King, CB, Iowa

31 (63) Atlanta Falcons

Derek Rivers, DE, Youngstown State

32 (64) Carolina Panthers (From Patriots)

Jordan Willis, DE, Kansas State
