APC Mock Draft Picks 42-44: Hyde, Bitonio, and Robinson Help NFL Offenses

We project three offensive prospects to go in the middle of round two, including a pair of tough, athletic Big Ten products.


As round two of the Acme Packing Company mock draft rolls along, the author with the Green Bay Packers' pick (that would be me) is anxiously awaiting his turn with the 53rd pick. Before that, though, we have picks from 42 through 44 ready to go.

#42: Tennessee Titans (Brendan)

Carlos Hyde, running back, Ohio State

Chris Johnson is gone. Shonne Green is fat. Jake Locker needs more weapons to make the Titans' offense more dynamic. Hyde does just that.

Previous selection:
1.14 Aaron Donald, defensive tackle, Pittsburgh

#43: New York Giants (Jason)

Joel Bitonio, offensive lineman, Nevada

The Giants must continue rebuilding their offensive line, and they tend to draft guys with tackle/guard flexibility such as last year's first round pick Justin Pugh. Joel Bitonio played left tackle at Nevada but could easily slide into the interior.

Previous selection:
1.12 Eric Ebron, tight end, North Carolina

#44: St. Louis Rams (Josh)

Allen Robinson, wide receiver, Penn State

After filling needs on defense, The Rams grab an athletic possesion receiver to pair with Tavon Austin's speed

Previous selections:
1.2 Jadeveon Clowney, defensive end, South Carolina
1.13 Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix, safety, Alabama
