The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / NFL Draft Day 2: 25 Best Remaining Players

NFL Draft Day 2: 25 Best Remaining Players

Best available 25 players in the second round!
Publish Date: 04/27/2018
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster

1. Maurice Hurst – Defense Tackle – Michigan

Hurst is the best defensive tackle in this draft and a top-five talent. He is excellent against both the run and the pass and is frequently penetrating the offensive backfield. The red flag with Hurst is his apparent heart condition that was discovered at the combine. Whether he has fallen because teams have information about it or because they need more information about it is unknown.

2. Harold Landry – Edge – Boston College

Based on the 2016 film, Landry is the best pass rusher in this class. He is twitchy and has some well-developed pass rush moves. An ankle injury in 2017 negatively impacted his play, and likely his draft stock.

3. Josh Jackson – Cornerback – Iowa

Jackson is a zone cornerback who likely fell because there were better man corners available. Jackson would be a great fit for a team like the Seahawks who likes physical deep third corners. He had only one year as a starter in college, but it was very impressive as he had 8 interceptions and returned 2 of them for touchdowns.

4. Derrius Guice – Running Back – LSU

Guice struggled with injury this season but looked like an explosive feature back in 2016. He makes great reads and does not shy away from contact.

5. Anthony Miller – Wide Receiver – Memphis

Miller is an excellent receiver with the ability to play both in the slot and on the outside. He is a former walk-on who has been extremely productive for Memphis over the last two seasons.

6. Dallas Goedert – Tight End – South Dakota State

Goedert is the modern NFL tight end. He is big and athletic and can be moved all around the formation. He has excellent hands and makes some very impressive catches.

7. Conner Williams – Offensive Lineman – Texas

Williams had an impressive 2016, but was injured in 2017 and struggled when he returned. Coming into the season he was considered the top offensive tackle prospect by many, but concerns about his height combined with a rough season have moved him down the list and inside to guard in the eyes of many.

8. Michael Gallup – Wide Receiver – Colorado State

Gallups is a speed receiver with the tools to develop into an NFL star. His route running improved greatly this season, but he still needs to work on his releases. Gallup could thrive with some good coaching.

9. Mike Gesicki – Tight End – Penn State

Gesicki has great size and impressed at the combine with a crazy workout. He made some impressive catches in his college career but is not a very good blocker.

10. Christian Kirk – Wide Receiver – Texas A&M

Kirk is a shifty slot receiver who can also return punts.

11. Nick Chubb – Running Back – Georgia

Chubb’s injury history is a concern to some, but he has the size, speed, and vision to be a feature back in the NFL.

12. Will Hernandez – Offensive Guard – UTEP

Hernandez is a strong, athletic guard who gets great movement in the run game but will need to improve his technique.

13. Donte Jackson – Cornerback – LSU

Jackson can play outside corner but is the best remaining option at slot corner. He is a physical player who excels in man coverage.

14.  Nathan Shepherd – Defensive Tackle – Fort Hays State

Shepherd dominated the competition at Division 2. He has the strength and athletic ability to be an excellent defensive tackle in the NFL.

15. James Daniels – Center – Iowa

Daniels impressed at the combine with his athletic ability, but his lack of strength is likely what pushed other centers in front of him. He still has the ability to be an immediate starter and could develop into a top-end center.

16. Jessie Bates – Safety – Wake Forest

Of all of the safety prospects in this draft, Bates’ range may make him the best prospect as a free safety.

17. Josh Sweat – Edge – Florida State

Sweat is an athletic freak who will be a bit of a project in the NFL. If he pans out, he could be special.

18. Mason Rudolph – Quarterback – Oklahoma State

In a draft without Josh Allen, everyone would have been talking about Rudolph’s arm talent and he would have gone round one. He has a lot of ability and could be a quality starter in the NFL.

19. Justin Reid – Safety – Stanford

Reid had a lot of the first-round buzz and is considered a due-it-all safety who can be a movable part in a defense,

20. Isaiah Oliver – Cornerback – Colorado

Oliver has the size and skill that many teams are looking for in a starting corner.

21. Jamarco Jones – Offensive Tackle – Ohio State

Jones is shorter than the NFL wants their tackles to be but has been impressive in college as both a run and a pass blocker.

22. Tyrell Crosby – Offensive Tackle – Oregon

Crosby lacks the ideal height for an NFL tackle, but had some great tape at Oregon, particularly as a run blocker.

23. Ronald Jones – Running Back – USC

Jones has excellent speed but runs high which causes him problems. He is a one-cut runner who rarely loses yards but also fails to create unless a hole is there for him.

24. Courtland Sutton – Wide Receiver – SMU

The NFL loves big receivers and Sutton’s size will make him the apple of someone’s eye. Sutton was extremely productive in college, but not as good in contested catch situations as you would like him to be.

25. DJ Chark – Wide Receiver – LSU

Chark is a true size/speed projection. He had limited college production and does not run great routes. He is 6’3” and fast which will give him a chance to compete and improve.
