With the 37th pick of the NN community mock draft, Roy_From_Israel and the New York Jets select...Cedric Ogbuehi, OT, Texas A&M
Alternates: WR Jalen Strong, OLB Eli Harold, OT Jake Fisher
After drafting a QB you should make sure that he actually has time to throw and targets to throw to. In addition, the Jets should also boost their pass rushing corps. After watching the tape of Eli Harold struggle mightily against both Ereck Flowers and Cameron Erving I decided he's not worth such a high pick. Moving on to the WR's, I considered Jalen Strong and Dorial Green Beckham. After watching tapes of the two, DGB is clearly the better player but the Jags snagged him away from me. Jalen Strong is also a good player with good size but he's not a good route runner and avoids physical contact like fire. Furthermore, the addition of Brandon Marshall brings a reliable target to Winston and reduces the need to draft a WR with a high selection. The Jets were awful in pass protection last year surrendering 47 sacks. Ogbuehi a very good run blocker, a very quick first step and has a ton of potential and even though his production didn't meet the expectations. He can play at RT or at Guard for a while until he supplants D'Brickashaw Ferguson and add much needed talent to the Jets offensive line.
With the 38th pick of the NN community mock draft, TopFlightSecurity and Washington select...Jake Fisher, OT, Oregon
Alternates: OG Laken Tomlinson, RB Jay Ajayi, DE Preston Smith
Think this pick was easier than the first they need o line help period and he has had time at both tackle spots and might be able to play some guard also. There are question all over except Trent Williams at tackle and maybe Lichtensteiger at center other than that old age and poor play have hindered them as a whole. Fisher should come in and make a difference right away some were on the line.
With the 39th pick of the NN community mock draft, Harbaughalypsenow and the Chicago Bears select...Eli Harold, OLB, Virginia
As I had hoped when I selected Amari Cooper No. 7 overall, some very interesting defensive prospects fell to #39. All of them have warts, but that is the nature of Days 2 and 3.
You could call Harold a project, and I wouldn't necessarily fight you on that. In baseball parlance, he is a tools-y prospect. But if anyone is up to the task of molding this young man into an NFL starter, it's Vic Fangio. He has the speed, strength, and length that you look for in a 3-4 OLB. While he has not shown a high degree of skill in setting the edge against the rush, that can be fixed by adding a bit of bulk and working with a great coordinator.
Other prospects considered: Preston Smith looks like a more talented version of our own Tony Jerod-Edie - versatile and solid all around. I worry that he would be an odd fit in the 3-4. Stephone Anthony, Paul Dawson, and Denzel Perryman were also interesting, but I feel like one of the three will fall to me in the third round. Carl Davis from Iowa got a look as well, as he would be a nice anchor to a rebuilding Bears defense.
With the 40th pick of the NN community mock draft, Jimmy Baugh and the New York Giants select...Derron Smith, FS, Fresno State
Alternatives: OG AJ Cann, WR/TE Devin Funchess
With the exit of Antrel Rolle to the Bears there is an immediate need for playmakers in the Giants secondary. He ended his college career with 15 interceptions with 13 of those coming during his sophomore and junior seasons. At 5'10, 200 pounds, he lacks some height but has great speed and is a Jimmie Ward type pick where he can come in and play the slot corner position and move to safety eventually. This may be a bit early to take him here but I think he is a good fit for the Giants.
Alternatives: Given the run on offensive and defensive lineman it started to get a little thin and figured it would slow down teams choices of those positions going forward. I really considered taking Devin Funchess because he could add some height to the somewhat short WR core and provides a little more athleticism than Larry Donnell.
