After the Buccaneers selected EDGE Joe Tryon with the 32nd overall pick Thursday, they’ll look ahead to Day 2 of the NFL Draft with picks 64 and 95. How teams drafted on Day 1 will drastically affect expectations tonight, so let’s run through some possibilities via a quick mock draft covering rounds 2 and 3.

33. Jacksonville Jaguars: Pat Freiermuth, TE Penn State

34. New York Jets: Azeez Ojulari, EDGE, Georgia

35. Atlanta Falcons: Trevon Moehrig, S, TCU

The Falcons need to almost totally rebuild their secondary, and it starts with a versatile prospect in Moehrig. He’s not an elite athlete, but he has experience doing a little bit of everything so Atlanta should be able to get him on the field right away.

36. Miami Dolphins: Javonte Williams, RB, North Carolina

37. Philadelphia Eagles: Tyson Campbell, CB, Georgia

38. Cincinnati Bengals: Teven Jenkins, OL, Oklahoma State

39. Carolina Panthers: Walker Little, OT Stanford

A colossal left tackle prospect who has dealt with injury, Little should immediately push former second rounder Greg Little (no relation) for the starting left tackle position. Protecting Sam Darnold will be paramount if they hope to revive the former No. 3 overall pick’s career.

40. Denver Broncos: Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, LB/S, Notre Dame

41. Detroit Lions: Elijah Moore, WR, Ole Miss

42. New York Giants: Joseph Ossai, EDGE, Texas

43. San Francisco 49ers: Jevon Holland, S/CB, Oregon

44. Dallas Cowboys: Ifeatu Melifonwu, CB, Syracuse

45. Jacksonville Jaguars: Christian Barmore, DT, Alabama

46. New England Patriots: Terrace Marshall Jr., WR, Louisiana State

47. Los Angeles Chargers: Kelvin Joseph, CB, Kentucky

48. Las Vegas Raiders: Jay Tufele, DT, Southern California

49. Arizona Cardinals: Wyatt Davis, OG, Ohio State

50. Miami Dolphins: Creed Humphrey, OC, Oklahoma

51. Washington Football Team: Richie Grant, S, Central Florida

52. Chicago Bears: Rondale Moore, WR, Purdue

If the Bears pull off an opening 1-2 punch of Justin Fields and Rondale Moore, we as whole need to start writing apology letters to GM Ryan Pace immediately. Moore is a dynamic playmaker who gives Fields an underneath threat who can also return kicks — a important role given the departure of All-Pro Cordarrelle Patterson.

53. Tennessee Titans: Carlos Basham, EDGE, Wake Forest

54. Indianapolis Colts: Samuel Cosmi, OT, Texas

55. Pittsburgh Steelers: Landon Dickerson, OC, Alabama

56. Seattle Seahawks: Levi Onwuzurike, DT, Washington

57. Los Angeles Rams: Asante Samuel Jr., CB, Florida State

58. Kansas City Chiefs: Pete Werner, LB, Ohio State

59. Cleveland Browns: Jabril Cox, LB, Louisiana State

60. New Orleans Saints: Paulson Adebo, CB, Stanford

The Saints manage to snap a cornerback who the Bucs might have serious interest in at the end of the second. New Orleans’s starter spot opposite Marshon Lattimore is wide open, and they have to address it.

61. Buffalo Bills: Aaron Robinson, CB, Central Florida

62. Green Bay Packers: Dillon Radunz, OT, North Dakota State

63. Kansas City Chiefs: Ronnie Perkins, EDGE, Oklahoma

64. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Quinn Meinerz, OC, Wisconsin-Whitewater

I’ll stick with my initial feeling from the final seven-round projection. Meinerz would be a great scheme fit who will benefit from a year to learn from Ryan Jensen and the coaching staff.

Round 3

65. Jacksonville Jaguars: Baron Browning, LB, Ohio State

66. Minnesota Vikings: Jamar Johnson, S, Indiana

67. Houston Texans: Josh Myers, OC, Ohio State

The Texans are awful almost everywhere, so might as well start with the trenches. Myers should start at guard or center right away.

68. Atlanta Falcons: Rashad Weaver, EDGE, Pittsburgh

The Falcons need to get some pass rushers in the building, and Weaver offers an interesting hybrid profile that might appeal to new defensive coordinator Dean Pees.

69. Cincinnati Bengals: Daviyon Nixon, DT, Iowa

70. Philadelphia Eagles: Jaylen Mayfield, OL, Michigan

71. Denver Broncos: Michael Carter, RB, North Carolina

One of my favorite running backs in the class, Carter has exceptional vision, balance and toughness despite a smaller frame. He’s a shifty runner who can make an impact in the passing game, and he can mirror the role that Austin Ekeler played for Melvin Gordon in Los Angeles.

72. Detroit Lions: Alim McNeill, DT, North Carolina State

73. Carolina Panthers: Hamsah Nasirildeen, S, Florida State

The Panthers seem all in on a physical, hybrid defense that can attack you in different ways, and Nasirildeen can fill another role as dimebacker/box enforcer who can also combat tight ends.

74. Washington Football Team: Liam Eichenberg, OT, Notre Dame

75Pitt. Dallas Cowboys: Spencer Brown, OT, Northern Iowa

76. New York Giants: Cameron McGrone, LB, Michigan

77. Los Angeles Chargers: Dyami Brown, WR, North Carolina

78. Minnesota Vikings: Nick Bolton, LB, Missouri

79. Las Vegas Raiders: Elijah Molden, S/CB, Washington

80. Las Vegas Raiders: Benjamin St. Juste, CB, Minnesota

81. Miami Dolphins: Tommy Togiai, DT, Ohio State

82. Washington Football Team: Davis Mills, QB, Stanford

Mills has such little tape and is such a huge projection, I can’t see him going higher than the third round. He’s got tools but he needs a lot of time to sit and learn the finer points of the game, from reading coverages to cleaning up his mechanics. Washington provides the opportunity to do that.

83. Chicago Bears: Brady Christensen, OT, BYU

84. Dallas Cowboys: Milton Williams, DT, Louisiana Tech

85. Tennessee Titans: Amari Rodgers, WR, Clemson

86. Minnesota Vikings: Nico Collins, WR, Michigan

87. Pittsburgh Steelers: Kellen Mond, QB, Texas A&M

Mond is very up and down, but the physical traits and flashes of greatness are there. He reminds me of Dak Prescott in that sense. Whether the Steelers choose to acknowledge the need for a higher upside passer or not remains to be seen, but this would be as good a shot as any.

88. Los Angeles Rams: Trey Smith, OG, Tennesseee

89. Cleveland Browns: Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR, Southern California

90. Minnesota Vikings: Jackson Carman, OL, Clemson

91. Cleveland Browns: Marlon Tuipulotu, DT, Southern California

92. Green Bay Packers: Talanoa Hufanga, S, Southern California

A mini-run on USC prospects here concludes with Hufanga, who could fit the hybrid safety/linebacker role that the Packers have implemented more in recent years. New defensive coordinator Joe Barry comes from a Rams defense that implemented loads of three safety looks.

93. Buffalo Bills: Kenneth Gainwell, RB, Memphis

94. Baltimore Ravens: Stone Forsythe, OT, Florida

95. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Kyle Trask, QB, Florida

There’s been a lot of smoke regarding Tampa’s interest in a Day 2 QB, particularly Trask. I’m not sure it’s what I would do, but Trask meets the threshold for arm strength, accuracy, measurables, and pocket movement to appeal to Bruce Arians.

Trask isn’t afraid to push it down the field, but he’s got to majorly clean up his mechanics and improve his reads if he wants to be anything more than a spot starter/backup. Sitting behind Tom Brady is a privilege, but Trask might have a limited ceiling regardless.

96. New England Patriots: Dylan Moses, LB, Alabama

97. Los Angeles Chargers: Hunter Long, TE, Boston College

98. New Orleans Saints: Chazz Surratt, LB, North Carolina

The Saints lack a viable starter beyond Demario Davis, so expect to see some level of investment in the position on Day 2. Surratt, who is a converted quarterback, has the physical skills and mentality to be a productive 3-down linebacker with time.

99. Dallas Cowboys: Andre Cisco, S, Syracuse

100. Tennessee Titans: Jordan Smith, EDGE, UAB

101. Detroit Lions: Robert Rochell, CB, Central Arkansas

102. San Francisco 49ers: Tommy Tremble, TE, Notre Dame

103. Los Angeles Rams: Quincy Roche, EDGE, Miami

104. Baltimore Ravens: Tyler Shelvin, DT, Louisiana State

105. New Orleans Saints: Tylan Wallace, WR, Oklahoma State

This is a classic, infuriatingly good Saints pick. Wallace doesn’t have dominant size but he has an alpha mentality that benefits him in contested catch situations throughout all three levels of the field. He’ll provide diversity to a receiving corps that desperately needs someone outside of Mike Thomas.
