APC Mock Draft, Round 2: Correa goes to Baltimore, 49ers get a big receiver for Wentz

Trends start to emerge in APC's mock, and a pass-rusher goes to a team known for talent at his position.

Kirby Lee-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.

IN the next four picks in round two, we find a player who has been often projected to land with the Green Bay Packers at #27 overall instead slipping to the early second round and ending up in Baltimore instead. Our picks also find a trend - a second teams who drafted a QB highly ended up pairing that signal-caller with a wideout as well.

Here are picks 36 through 39.

2.5 (36 overall): Baltimore Ravens select OLB Kamalei Correa, Boise State

Tex Western: The Ravens got an interior lineman at the 6th pick, and continue to add to the front seven here. Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil remain, but they are both 32 or older and there is no depth behind them. It's hard to imagine the Ravens not identifying this position as a need early on, and Correa would be given the opportunity to grow behind the veterans for a year or two before having to man a starting position of his own.

2.6 (37): San Francisco 49ers select WR Michael Thomas, Ohio State

Like the Browns before them, we have the Niners pairing a first-round quarterback with a second-round receiver. Here, though, the 49ers go for a big, physical receiver instead of a deep threat. Thomas will serve a role much like Michael Crabtree or Anquan Boldin did for San Francisco in recent years, allowing Torrey Smith to remain viable on deep routes.

2.7 (38): Jacksonville Jaguars select S Karl Joseph, West Virginia

The Jaguars signed former Brown Tashaun Gipson in free agency and have 2013 second-rounder Jonathan Cyprien penciled in as the other starter. However, Joseph will provide another option who can not only back up the safety positions but who can line up in the slot as well.

2.8 (39): Tampa Bay Buccaneers select CB Kendall Fuller, Virginia Tech

Jason Hirschhorn: If not for health, Kendall Fuller could have heard his name called midway through the first round. Though taking a defensive back fresh off a knee injury presents some risk, the Buccaneers could luck into a starting-caliber corner with good size (5-foot-11, 187 pounds) and better bloodlines (multiple brothers in the NFL).
