2017 NFL Mock Draft: Second-round picks include Dalvin Cook, DeShone Kizer – CBSSports.com

Ball security issues. Pass protection problems. Medical concerns. Off-field baggage. The “red flags” are why
Florida State Seminoles
running back
Dalvin Cook
wasn’t drafted in the first round.

But with the ball in his hands, Cook is a dynamic playmaker who can move the chains and be a home run threat. He shouldn’t have to wait long on Day 2 of the 2017 NFL Draft to hear his name called, especially with a running back-needy team like the
Green Bay Packers
selecting first at pick No. 33.

33. Green Bay Packers

Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State: Due to several issues on the field and off, Cook fell through the first round, making him a steal for Green Bay.

34.
Seattle Seahawks


Cam Robinson
, OT,
Alabama Crimson Tide
:
Robinson ends up on the ground way too often, but his raw traits can help Seattle’s line at guard or tackle.

35.
Jacksonville Jaguars


Forrest Lamp
, OG, Western Kentucky:
A four-year starter at left tackle, Lamp can stop the revolving door at left guard for the Jaguars.

36.
Chicago Bears

Kevin King, CB, Washington: Chicago addressed the offense with a quarterback in Round 1, help the secondary in Round 2.

37.
Los Angeles Rams

Tyus Bowser, DE/OLB,
Houston Cougars
:
In Wade Phillips’ 3-4 scheme, the Rams will be searching for an explosive edge rusher — like Bowser.

38. Los Angeles
San Diego Chargers


Budda Baker
, FS,
Washington Huskies
:
San Diego opted for receiver over secondary help in Round 1, but are still able to land a talented safety here.

39.
New York Jets


Chidobe Awuzie
, CB,
Colorado Buffaloes
:
The Jets landed an impact safety in Round 1 and pick up cornerback help in Round 2.

40.
Carolina Panthers


Tarell Basham
, DE,
Ohio Bobcats
:
The Panthers added
Julius Peppers
, but need to develop youth at edge rusher.

41.
Cincinnati Bengals


Joe Mixon
, RB,
Oklahoma Sooners
:
Cincinnati has never had a problem with “character” guys before and they’ll likely target a running back on Day 2.

42.
New Orleans Saints


DeShone Kizer
, QB,
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
:
At some point, the Saints need to plan for life after
Drew Brees
— maybe that day is Friday.

43.
Philadelphia Eagles


Teez Tabor
, CB,
Florida Gators
:
With his slow 40-yard dash times and brash attitude, Tabor could end up being a bargain this late.

44.
Buffalo Bills


Malik McDowell
, DL,
Michigan State Spartans
:
As Buffalo transitions to a 4-3 scheme, the Bills can get younger on the interior of the line.

45.
Arizona Cardinals


Davis Webb
, QB,
California Golden Bears
:
Quarterback was wiped out in the first round for Arizona, making Webb a Plan B in Round 2.

46.
Indianapolis Colts


Curtis Samuel
, RB,
Ohio State Buckeyes
:
An Ohio State playmaker fell to the Colts in Round 1 and it might happen again in Round 2.

47.
Baltimore Ravens


Carl Lawson
, DE/OLB,
Auburn Tigers
:
Baltimore always has their eye on upgrading the pass rush and Lawson can be the heir to
Terrell Suggs
.

48.
Minnesota Vikings


Dan Feeney
, OG,
Indiana Hoosiers
:
The Vikings will look to upgrade the interior of their line on Day 2 and Feeney is a natural fit.

50.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers

, CB,
UCLA Bruins
:
With Grimes in the final year of his deal, cornerback is a position that could use an upgrade.

51.
Denver Broncos

Adam Shaheen, TE, Ashland: The Broncos have some talent on the tight end depth chart, but Shaheen has more upside than all of them.

52.
Cleveland Browns
(from Tennessee)

Josh Dobbs, QB, Tennessee: The Browns are expected to draft a quarterback at some point and the coaches had Dobbs in Mobile.

:
Miami bypassed offensive line in the first round, but still get NFL starter quality at this pick.

55.

57.
Houston Texans


Obi Melifonwu
, DB,
Connecticut Huskies
:
Whether Melifonwu plays cornerback or safety, the Texans could use depth at both positions.

58. Seattle Seahawks


Quincy Wilson
, CB, Florida:
A good-sized athlete, Wilson fits the mold of the Seattle cornerback, a great fit for both sides.

59.
Kansas City Chiefs


Alvin Kamara
, RB, Tennessee:

Spencer Ware
is a solid option at running back, but Kamara provides a fastball to the arsenal.

60.
Dallas Cowboys


Cordrea Tankersley
, CB,
Clemson Tigers
: The Cowboys need secondary help and Tankersley was a top-30 visit in Dallas, making this marriage a possibility.

61. Green Bay Packers

Derek Rivers, DE/OLB, Youngstown State: The Packers are expected to add young depth on the edges and Rivers has intriguing NFL potential.

62.
Pittsburgh Steelers


Chris Godwin
, WR,

Marcus Williams
, FS,

would form a dynamic safety duo for the next several years.
