NFL Mock Draft 2019, Day 2: Broncos get their QB, Eagles stop D.K. Metcalf's fall, Cowboys start with safety
Time to break down a potential scenario for Rounds 2 and 3 after 32 picks are in the books
Round 1 of the 2019 NFL Draft is in the books, and that means it's time to turn our attention to the second and third rounds. Below, you can find my mock draft of Day 2, complete with every pick from No. 33 to No. 102. But I'll answer a few of your pressing questions at the top.
Where does Missouri quarterback Drew Lock land? At No. 41, with a team in the Broncos that did extensive work on him over the last few months and had people thinking they could take him at No. 10. How about Ole Miss receiver D.K. Metcalf? He makes it all the way down to No. 53, where the Eagles snap him up as the long-term deep threat for their offense.
Be sure to join us at CBS Sports HQ for our live coverage of the NFL Draft all the way through Saturday. We'll break down all the picks and trades as they happen, with grades, analysis and plenty more. If you'd rather watch on mobile or a connected device, you can download the CBS Sports app.
Who do the teams that have yet to pick take with their first selections? The Colts get on the board quickly with Ole Miss receiver A.J. Brown, the Rams land an interior offensive lineman in Texas A&M's Erik McCoy, the Browns finally end their wait by scooping up Temple corner Rock Ya-Sin, the Cowboys stop the fall of Washington safety Taylor Rapp, the Chiefs land a corner in Penn State's Amani Oruwariye before taking a receiver two picks later, the Saints grab a quality linebacker in Alabama's Mack Wilson, and the Bears finally join the party with FAU running back Devin Singletary. Those picks and more right now ...
Round 2 - Pick 1 (33)
Byron Murphy CB
Washington • Soph • 5'11" / 190 lbs
Murphy is a first-round talent who ran a slow 40 at the combine, but he's going to start in the NFL for a long time. The Cardinals just missed out on N'Keal Harry but can wait for a receiver in this deep class.
From New York Jets
Round 2 - Pick 2 (34)
A.J. Brown WR
Ole Miss • Soph • 6'0" / 226 lbs
The Colts traded out of the first round altogether, so this is their first pick of the draft. And it's a good one -- Brown shined as the focal point of the Ole Miss passing attack, and he'll be a reliable weapon for Andrew Luck.
Round 2 - Pick 3 (35)
LSU • Soph • 6'2" / 185 lbs
Early in draft season, many thought Williams was a first-round talent, but his questionable tackling ability had him slide out of the first round altogether. But the Raiders need playmakers on defense, and he certainly qualifies.
Round 2 - Pick 4 (36)
Deebo Samuel WR
South Carolina • Soph • 6'0" / 215 lbs
The 49ers should be in the market for some receiving help with one of their next two picks, and some thought Samuel had a chance to go in the first round. He'll be a boost to the passing attack in San Francisco.
From New York Giants
Round 2 - Pick 5 (37)
Florida • Soph • 5'11" / 210 lbs
I thought Gardner-Johnson was a candidate for the Seahawks late in the first round, and I'm going to stick to him being the option here. He could play corner or free safety in Seattle, and the latter would make him the heir to Earl Thomas. No pressure.
Round 2 - Pick 6 (38)
Irv Smith TE
Alabama • Soph • 6'2" / 242 lbs
Smith didn't have a great combine, but even though he wasn't taken in the first round he shouldn't have to wait long on Friday. The Jaguars were lucky to have Josh Allen fall in their laps at No. 7; now they have to add weapons on offense.
Round 2 - Pick 7 (39)
Kentucky • Soph • 6'2" / 213 lbs
Lonnie Johnson's stock has been on the rise over the last few weeks, to the point where some thought he could sneak into the first round. Instead, he's a top-40 pick who will help the Tampa Bay secondary immediately.
Round 2 - Pick 8 (40)
Florida • Soph • 6'5" / 312 lbs
Taylor was thought to be a top-10 pick heading into Thursday, and many matched him up with the Bills at No. 9. To see him still available is shocking, and I doubt he falls any further than this.
Round 2 - Pick 9 (41)
Drew Lock QB
Missouri • Soph • 6'4" / 228 lbs
Lock seemed to be the favorite for Denver's first-round pick at No. 10, and when they traded back to No. 20 and Lock was still available it felt like a slam dunk. So I can't imagine they pass on him once again here.
Round 2 - Pick 10 (42)
Ohio State • Soph • 6'0" / 205 lbs
Wide receiver isn't the biggest need for the Bengals, but Campbell is a versatile weapon new coach Zac Taylor can use to make the offense more dynamic.
Round 2 - Pick 11 (43)
A talented small-schooler that some thought was the best safety in this class, Adderley would be a perfect fit for the centerfield role with the Lions.
Round 2 - Pick 12 (44)
Cody Ford OL
Oklahoma • Soph • 6'3" / 329 lbs
I thought Ford was a top-half-of-the-first-round talent who was in play for the Packers at No. 12. Instead he's one of two offensive linemen to shockingly slip out of the first round. He shouldn't last long on Friday.
From Atlanta Falcons
Round 2 - Pick 13 (45)
Erik McCoy OL
• Soph • 6'4" / 314 lbs
I thought McCoy was in the mix for the Rams at No. 31, so I'm pairing him with the team here. He could be an option at guard or center out of the gate as the Rams look to incorporate multiple new starters into the offensive line.
From Washington Redskins
Round 2 - Pick 14 (46)
Louisiana Tech • Soph • 6'5" / 275 lbs
The Colts moved back from No. 26 to this spot for an extra second-rounder next year, and they spend the pick on a guy named Sack Daddy who set records at Louisiana Tech. He'll help upgrade a pass rush that's already added Justin Houston.
Round 2 - Pick 15 (47)
Will Grier QB
West Virginia • Soph • 6'1" / 220 lbs
This feels a little high for Grier to me, but late buzz suggested he could sneak into the first round so I think he'll be taken in the second at worst. Carolina has done plenty of work on him, so the pairing makes sense.
Round 2 - Pick 16 (48)
Round 2 - Pick 17 (49)
Round 2 - Pick 18 (50)
Kansas State • Soph • 6'5" / 312 lbs
It's easy to like Risner's game, and his versatility should make him a fit anywhere on the line. The Vikings need to add multiple starting-caliber O-linemen in this draft, so even after taking Garrett Bradbury in Round 1 they go back to the well here.
Round 2 - Pick 19 (51)
From Pittsburgh Steelers
Round 2 - Pick 20 (52)
From Baltimore Ravens
Round 2 - Pick 21 (53)
DK Metcalf WR
Ole Miss • Soph • 6'4" / 229 lbs
After Metcalf blew up the combine, many envisioned him as a high first-round pick, but his game is a little too one-dimensional for that. The Eagles will look to develop him into a stud but can still benefit from his deep speed immediately.
From Seattle Seahawks
Round 2 - Pick 22 (54)
Round 2 - Pick 23 (55)
• Soph • 6'4" / 251 lbs
Sternberger should be the fourth tight end off the board, and with the interior offensive line options here not great, the Texans grab a talented tight end instead of more O-line help.
From Chicago Bears
Round 2 - Pick 24 (56)
Chase Winovich EDGE
Michigan • Soph • 6'3" / 250 lbs
Winovich put on an absolute clinic at the combine, standing out among the players looking to establish themselves as the next tier of edge rushers. I think he's going in Round 2, and he fits a need for the Patriots with Trey Flowers gone.
Round 2 - Pick 25 (57)
Virginia • Soph • 6'0" / 205 lbs
Thornhill gets lost in the shuffle at the safety position with all the talent in this class, but he can come in and contribute immediately and should be a versatile player on the back end for Philadelphia.
Round 2 - Pick 26 (58)
Washington • Soph • 6'0" / 208 lbs
The predraft process was ugly for Rapp, and many thought his stock would slip from fringe Round 1. That should be just fine with the Cowboys, who land a stud at the position to man the box that's much cheaper than Eric Berry.
Round 2 - Pick 27 (59)
Justin Layne CB
Michigan State • Soph • 6'2" / 192 lbs
Layne has his fans at the corner position, and this would be a bit late for him to come off the board. But after we saw teams mostly pass on the position in Round 1, it's going to push several talented corners further than they should go.
Round 2 - Pick 29 (61)
Penn State • Soph • 6'2" / 205 lbs
Corner run! The Chiefs are also in need of more talent at the position, so this group of teams late in the second round stands to benefit from the lack of focus on the position in Round 1.
Round 2 - Pick 30 (62)
Mack Wilson LB
Alabama • Soph • 6'1" / 233 lbs
The Saints showed interest in Wilson during the predraft process, and while corner and receiver could be bigger needs, there's a bigger dropoff at the linebacker position after the Alabama star comes off the board.
From Los Angeles Rams
Round 2 - Pick 31 (63)
NC State • Soph • 6'2" / 215 lbs
With uncertainty around Tyreek Hill's future, the Chiefs should be looking for a receiver on Day 2. Harmon's skill set is nothing like Hill's, but the team has showed interest in the NC State receiver and he's a second-round talent, so this is good value.
Round 2 - Pick 32 (64)
Minnesota • Soph • 6'1" / 237 lbs
Cashman turned in a fantastic combine that should boost his stock considerably, to the point that he could be in play with a late Round 2 or early Round 3 pick. With the top four tight ends gone, the Pats take the linebacker here and eye TE in Round 3.
Round 3 - Pick 1 (65)
Miles Boykin WR
Notre Dame • Soph • 6'4" / 220 lbs
Boykin has had an excellent predraft process, and I expect someone to fall in love with his athleticism and take him on Day 2. The Cardinals passed on a receiver at the top of Round 2 so they could be a Boykin landing spot.
From Oakland Raiders
Round 3 - Pick 2 (66)
Iowa State • Soph • 6'5" / 227 lbs
Some see Butler as a first-round talent, and he fits the mold as a good value pick at the position for the Steelers who winds up being better than many of the players taken ahead of him.
Round 3 - Pick 3 (67)
Alabama • Soph • 6'1" / 195 lbs
Thompson was considered a shoo-in for the first round before struggling at the end of last season, and he wasn't particularly impressive during the predraft process. That just means someone is going to get a good value later than they should.
Round 3 - Pick 4 (68)
Round 3 - Pick 5 (69)
Ohio State • Soph • 6'0" / 210 lbs
McLaurin could go 30 picks higher than this and I wouldn't bat an eye. He'd be a great find for a Jacksonville team that needs to improve its passing game weapons for Nick Foles.
Round 3 - Pick 7 (71)
Round 3 - Pick 8 (72)
Ryan Finley QB
NC State • Soph • 6'4" / 207 lbs
I like the Bengals as a sleeper team for Josh Rosen, but if they pass on the Cardinals QB I can see them using this pick to add a guy like Finley that Zac Taylor can develop before the team reassesses the position next offseason.
From Detroit Lions
Round 3 - Pick 9 (73)
Round 3 - Pick 13 (77)
Greg Little OL
Ole Miss • Soph • 6'5" / 310 lbs
Some think Little is a first-round talent, and it would be a little surprising to see him fall out of Round 2. But the Panthers should be looking for offensive line help after going with Brian Burns instead at No. 16, so he's a fit here.
Round 3 - Pick 14 (78)
Riley Ridley WR
Georgia • Soph • 6'1" / 200 lbs
The Dolphins should just keep accumulating talent at any position, and while receiver isn't a huge need at this point, Ridley is someone they've shown interest in.
From Atlanta Falcons
Round 3 - Pick 15 (79)
Memphis • Soph • 5'8" / 208 lbs
With Todd Gurley's disappearance during the playoffs and the health concerns surrounding him, the Rams should be in a good spot to land a talented running back in the third round after trading for an extra Day 2 pick.
Round 3 - Pick 16 (80)
Trysten Hill DL
UCF • Soph • 6'3" / 308 lbs
The Browns were rumored to be chasing Jeffery Simmons in a trade up, so even though they added to the defensive tackle position in free agency I think they're still in place for a talent like Hill on Day 2.
Round 3 - Pick 18 (82)
Stanford • Soph • 6'2" / 225 lbs
Arcega-Whiteside is talented enough to go in Round 2, but the depth at the position is going to cause some players to slip. He'd be a nice option for the Titans after they focused on defense earlier.
From Seattle Seahawks
Round 3 - Pick 20 (84)
Round 3 - Pick 21 (85)
Penn State • Soph • 5'11" / 211 lbs
The Ravens need receivers more, even after taking Marquise Brown, but I think they'll be in the mix to grab one of the Round 3 talents at running back to pair with Mark Ingram.
Round 3 - Pick 23 (87)
Florida Atlantic • Soph • 5'7" / 203 lbs
The Bears are on the board! They don't have many needs, and while running back isn't their biggest one, they've done a lot of work on the class of players expected to go in Rounds 3 and 4, so someone like Singletary could be an option if the right defender isn't here.
From Philadelphia Eagles
Round 3 - Pick 24 (88)
Round 3 - Pick 26 (90)
Round 3 - Pick 27 (91)
Northern Illinois • Soph • 6'6" / 327 lbs
The Chargers should be in the mix for some help at right tackle at some point on Day 2, and after going corner earlier they end up making Scharping their pick for that purpose.
From Kansas City Chiefs
Round 3 - Pick 28 (92)
Josh Oliver TE
San Jose State • Soph • 6'5" / 249 lbs
The Seahawks moved down from No. 84 as part of the Frank Clark trade, and in their new slot I can see them taking the leap on one of the tight ends, as this tier should start coming off the board late in Round 3.
From New Orleans Saints
Round 3 - Pick 29 (93)
Iowa State • Soph • 5'10" / 222 lbs
Running back isn't a huge need after signing Le'Veon Bell, but who knows how long he'll be on the field for the Jets? Montgomery has a chance to be a star if he needs to take over down the road, and he'd be a nice complement immediately.
Round 3 - Pick 30 (94)
From New England Patriots
Round 3 - Pick 31 (95)
Round 3 - Pick 32 (96)
Massachusetts • Soph • 5'9" / 188 lbs
Isabella turned plenty of heads with a great combine, and he's a versatile option at receiver who has enough talent to be a Round 2 pick. If he's lost in the shuffle among bigger names at the position, someone will get a steal.
Round 3 - Pick 33 (97)
San Diego State • Soph • 6'5" / 250 lbs
The Patriots finally upgrade their tight end position with Warring, an ascending prospect who is going to get better once an NFL staff gets their hands on him. People might go 'Who?' when he's drafted, but he'll make an impact before long.
From Los Angeles Rams
Round 3 - Pick 34 (98)
Round 3 - Pick 36 (100)
Despite his small-school status, Saunders is a good enough talent to go on Day 2, and he should be a nice addition to a Panthers defense that wants to get more versatile.
Round 3 - Pick 37 (101)
Dawson Knox TE
Ole Miss • Soph • 6'4" / 254 lbs
Why take one tight end when you can take two? The Patriots double up on the position and here take a guy who's a better blocker than Warring and has untapped potential in the passing game.
