QB need dictates wheeling and dealing to start Round 2

Mock draft: Round 2

Following up with my first-round mock draft, it's time to take a look at the second round.

Keep in mind, there will be different teams in certain slots due to the trades I predicted in the first round. We also start off Round 2 with another trade.

Washington now owns the top slot in this projection after making a deal with the Patriots. The move from 41 to 33, cost the Redskins 110 points on the trade chart. Since the Redskins don't have another pick until 144, they send next year's third-round pick to New England.

The deal allows the Redskins to get their quarterback of the future, but look at New England in this mock draft. They draft Anthony Castonzo, Muhammad Wilkerson, Danny Watkins and Ryan Williams. They also pick up an additional second and third next year, and still have five picks left in the 2011 draft.

  1. Denver Broncos, Kyle Rudolph, TE, Notre Dame
  1. Arizona Cardinals, Derek Sherrod, OT, Mississippi State
  1. * New York Jets, *Justin Houston, OLB, Georgia
  1. Dallas Cowboys, Ras-I Dowling, CB, Virginia
  1. Houston Texans, Davon House, CB, New Mexico State
  1. San Francisco 49ers, Phil Taylor, NT, Baylor
