Second-round mock draft fills another position of need for Bills

A look at how the second round of the NFL Draft might play out Friday night in Philadelphia:

33. Green Bay Packer – Kevin King, CB, Washington. Smart move by the Packers moving down a couple spots with plenty of talented cornerbacks, which is their biggest need, still on the board.

34. Seattle Seahawks – Cam Robinson, OT, Alabama. With the first of six picks on Day Two, the Seahawks also fill their biggest need. Robinson should be an immediate starter.

35. Jacksonville Jaguars -- Forrest Lamp, G, Western Kentucky. It’s a mild surprise the consensus best interior offensive lineman in the class slipped out of the first round.

36. Chicago Bears – Budda Baker, FS, Washington. After trading up for quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, the Bears have just four picks left, so they need to make them count.

37. Los Angeles Rams – Tyus Bowser, LB, Houston. The Rams could use an edge rusher for Wade Phillips’ defense.

38. Los Angeles Chargers – DeShone Kizer, QB, Notre Dame. Philip Rivers’ eventual replacement lands in a good spot, where he’ll get to be brought along slowly.

39. New York Jets – Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State. Matt Forte is on the wrong side of 30. This would be a nice first couple picks for the Jets, combined with safety Jamal Adams in the first round.

40. Carolina Panthers – Carl Lawson, DE, Auburn. Julius Peppers isn’t a long-term fix at defensive end. Lawson is.

41. Cincinnati Bengals – Malik McDowell, DT, Michigan State. After possibly reaching for Washington receiver John Ross in the first round, the Bengals will get credit for “stealing” McDowell in the second.

42. New Orleans Saints – Obi Melifonwu, SS, UConn. A workout warrior, Melifonwu is considered by some scouts to be raw, but he did have 118 tackles and four interceptions as a senior.

43. Philadelphia Eagles -- Chidobe Awuzie, CB, Colorado. The depth at cornerback shows up again as the Eagles get a player rated No. 27 in the draft, according to CBS Sports.

44. Buffalo Bills – Zay Jones, WR, East Carolina. With a couple of teams ahead of them who could use a wide receiver, the Bills will probably have some anxious moments. If Jones gets to them, he fills an obvious need and will compete immediately to be the No. 2 receiver.

45. Arizona Cardinals – Marcus Sanders-Williams, FS, Utah. A playmaker with 18 created turnovers over the past three years.

46. Indianapolis Colts -- Zach Cunningham, LB, Vanderbilt. Could go in several different directions on defense, but an athletic linebacker like Cunningham is a big need in today’s NFL.

47. Baltimore Ravens -- Tim Williams, LB, Alabama. Some teams will be scared off by character concerns, but Williams’ presence off the edge can’t be ignored.

48. Minnesota Vikings – Chris Wormley, DT, Michigan. Minnesota had to wait a long time before making its first pick. Wormley should get into the rotation quickly.

49. Washington Redskins – Davis Webb, QB, Cal. With nine picks remaining, Washington can afford to give itself another option at quarterback as it deals with what is going to happen with Kirk Cousins.

50. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Jordan Willis, DE, Kansas State. The Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year is a relentless pass rusher.

51. Denver Broncos – Raekwon McMillan, LB, Ohio State. His 40 time at the combine (4.61 seconds) impressed and lands him squarely in the second round.

52. Cleveland Browns – Quincy Wilson, CB, Florida. The Browns continue what looks like an impressive draft on paper with another potential starter.

53. Detroit Lions – Curtis Samuel, WR, Ohio State. A Percy Harvin-type player, Samuel should be able to do a bit of everything for the Lions.

54. Miami Dolphins – Fabian Moreau, CB, UCLA. A native of Sunrise, Fla., comes home to play.

55. New York Giants – Duke Riley, LB, LSU. Scouting reports suggest Riley will have a better pro career than college career because his athleticism will be better utilized at the next level.

56. Oakland Raiders – Dalvin Tomlinson, DT, Alabama. A big body is needed in the middle of the defense, and Tomlinson (310 pounds) possesses that.

57. Houston Texans – Dan Feeney, OG, Indiana. In one of the few picks the Texans haven’t given to the Borwns, they get an offensive lineman who allowed two sacks in more than 3,350 career snaps.

58. Seattle Seahawks – Sidney Jones, CB, Washington. He’s coming off a torn Achilles. Had he not been hurt, Jones would have been a first-round pick.

59. Kansas City Chiefs -- Cordrea Tankersley, CB, Clemson: The never-ending supply of cornerbacks lands the Chiefs a potential starter.

60. Dallas Cowboys -- Marcus Maye, S, Florida. Jerry Jones will love Maye's aggressiveness.

61. Green Bay Packers -- Ethan Pocic, C, LSU. The Packers lost Akron product J.C. Tretter in free agency.

62. Pittsburgh Steelers -- Adam Shaheen, TE, Ashland. A Division II product who has a basketball background.

63. Atlanta Falcons -- Dorian Johnson, G, Pittsburgh. With only four draft picks, the Falcons don't have much room for error. Johnson should be able to challenge for a job at right guard.

64. Carolina Panthers -- Cooper Kupp, WR, Eastern Washington. Another weapon around quarterback Cam Newton.
