APC Mock Draft 2016: Round 2 kicks off with Browns landing a deep threat

We continue our mock draft with the start of round two as we begin week two.

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Acme Packing Company's 2016 mock draft continues on with round two, which will be released over the course of this week. The rules were simple: seven authors were assigned four or five teams apiece, and made the picks for each of those teams whenever they came up. We will pick the first three rounds of the draft.

The second round finds numerous intriguing players still available at all positions, as usual. The Green Bay Packers hold the 23rd pick in this round, at #57 overall, and should still have a great chance to find someone who can provide excellent value at that spot.

Here's how we see the first four picks breaking down.

2.1 (32 overall): Cleveland Browns select WR Will Fuller, Notre Dame

Tex Western: Fuller is the pick here, with the Browns adding a quarterback and still being no closer to an answer on Josh Gordon's future. Sure, Fuller's hands are somewhat suspect, but can take the top off a defense and open things up for Andrew Hawkins underneath. The big question now on offense is whether the Browns' offensive line will give their quarterback enough time to let Fuller actually get deep.

2.2 (33): Tennessee Titans select CB Mackensie Alexander, Clemson

Mike Vieth: One of the worst secondaries in the league gets some help with cornerback, Mackensie Alexander from Clemson. Alexander is young but has the athleticism and cover skills that NFL teams love to see. He mostly played zone coverage at Clemson but showed the quick feet and fluid hip movement that shows potential in man-to-man situations. His best characteristic, however, might be his aggressive nature and the swagger he displays on the field. He isn't afraid to play on the line and will be physical with whoever lines up across from him. He also has that Josh Norman type attitude where no one can beat him and he let's his cockiness show from time to time. Some might say he's a little too cocky but it might (finally) get some players and fans talking about the Titans.

2.3 (34): Dallas Cowboys select CB Eli Apple, Ohio State

Jason Hirschhorn: The Cowboys narrowly missed Jalen Ramsey in the first round, but they can still help their secondary with Ohio State's Eli Apple here. Apple has good size for a corner (6-foot-1, 199 pounds) and the playmaking skills desired in a defensive back. He needs work, but at this point in the draft, Dallas shouldn't complain.

2.4 (35): San Diego Chargers select OT Jason Spriggs, Indiana

The Chargers have had a middling offensive line for years, and although their starting tackle positions seem solid with King Dunlap and Joe Barksdale, Spriggs would provide valuable insurance behind them in the case of any significant injuries.
