2012 NFL Mock Draft Second Round Featuring the Tar Heel Inside Scoop

11 of 11

63. New England Patriots Vinny Curry, Defensive End, Marshall
Despite all of their picks so far in the draft, I believe that the team will still be looking to better solidify their defense at number 63. A player like Vinny Curry, if given the chance to play alongside of Michael Brockers (an LSU defensive tackle and my first round projection for New England) could potentially be a legitimate pass rushing threat for the Patriots.

64. New York Giants Zebrie Saunders, Offensive Tackle, Florida St.
If the Giants address their linebacking core in the first round (I project that they will select Alabama linebacker Donte Hightower with the 32nd overall pick) then I believe that they will look to sure up their offensive line in the second round. Adding Zebrie Saundes would not only help quarterback Eli Manning, but it would also allow the Giants to get back to the power running style of play on offense.

Just like in the first round mock, I am always looking for opinions on my work. If you have any comment, agreement, disagreement, or analysis on this second round mock, please do not hesitate to let me know.
