The 2015 Acme Packing Company Mock Draft continues today, as we close down the second round. We'll have one more round to get through for you this week as we approach the start of the draft next Thursday.

At the end of round two, there are plenty of intriguing prospects. However, the Green Bay Packers find a prospect at #62 overall that many people have been projecting to go to the Packers at #30 instead.

See below for the final eight picks of round two, with explanations about the picks.

#57 (CAR): Duke Johnson, RB, Miami (FL)

After passing up Melvin Gordon in round one, the Panthers are able to find one of the talented runners in round two. Johnson isn't tall, but he's solid and should be effective as a receiver out of the backfield as well. He'll split time with Jonathan Stewart early on, but should take over as the feature back without too much delay. (Aron)

Previous pick: CB Kevin Johnson, Wake Forest

#58 (BAL): Carl Davis, DT, Iowa

Tex: This just screams "Ravens pick", doesn't it? Baltimore has youth and talent at two DL positions (Timmy Jernigan and Brandon Williams), so Davis would rotate in with Chris Canty at the 5-technique spot as a rookie before taking over full-time in 2016. That line could be locked up for the better part of a decade with those three players.

Previous pick: RB Melvin Gordon, Wisconsin

#59 (DEN): Ty Sambrailo, OT, Colorado State

Defensive line? Check. Now the Broncos look to the offensive front. Sambrailo gives them good depth in case of an injury to Ryan Clady or ineffectiveness on the part of Chris Clark on the right. (Aron)

Previous pick: DE Arik Armstead, Oregon

#60 (DAL): Nate Orchard, DE, Utah

Dallas' pass-rushers aren't exactly striking fear into the hearts of their opponents, though last year's second-round pick DeMarcus Lawrence shows some promise. Orchard brings a wide array of moves with him, and should be an instant contributor on passing downs. (Kris)

Previous pick: CB P.J. Williams, Florida State

#61 (IND): Tevin Coleman, RB, Indiana

Tex: Dan Herron is not a long-term answer at running back. Despite his successes in San Francisco, Frank Gore isn't either. Coleman gives the Colts a versatile home-run threat and should easily wipe away any memories of Trent Richardson from Colts fans' minds. As an added bonus, many of them probably already like him, having seen him play college ball just down the road in Bloomington.

Previous pick: NT Eddie Goldman, Florida State

#62 (GB): Jalen Collins, CB, LSU

Jason: One of the Packers' two biggest needs heading into the draft is the cornerback position. Jalen Collins is talented enough that some teams may consider him in the first round. To find him still on the board at No. 62 is a ncie surprise for Green Bay.

Previous pick: ILB Shaq Thompson, Washington

#63 (SEA): Grady Jarrett, DT, Clemson

Josh: Seahawks GM John Schneider looks for a certain types of players that don't always stand out in the predraft process. After five years of more-than-solid results, no one will question him if he takes a defensive tackle that some don't see as a Day 2 pick.

Previous picks: none (traded to Saints)

#64 (NE): Ali Marpet, T/G, Hobart

Tex: New England needs help on the interior of the offensive line almost as much as they need a cornerback. Marpet is as good a D-III prospect as there has ever been - he should be able to start at guard from day one and he has the ability to slide out to tackle in a pinch.

Previous picks: DE Bud Dupree, Kentucky
