Mel Kiper Jr. offers two-round mock

By Bill Williamson

ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. has offered another mock draft Insider in an Insider piece. This time, Kiper is going two rounds deep. Let’s take a look at his choices for the AFC West teams:

First round

1. Kansas City: Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M,

My take: This looks like the most official pick at this point. Things can change, but it looks like Joeckel.

3. Oakland: Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida

My take: This is my choice as well. Taking Floyd would kick start a defensive revival.

11. San Diego: Lane Johnson, LT, Oklahoma

My take: It’s starting to look like Johnson might not be available. The key here is Kiper Jr. had Geno Smith going No. 4 to the Eagles. The Chargers would be thrilled if this happens.

28. Denver: D.J. Hayden, CB, Houston

My take: It fills a long-term need, and Hayden has potential. I think Denver would look for other needs first.

Second round

45. San Diego: Arthur Brown, LB, Kansas State

My take: He is a fine player. This would be a good two-round haul for San Diego.

55. Denver: Damontre Moore, DE, Texas A&M

My take: That would be an amazing value if he fell. He was once considered a top-5 talent. There are concerns, but he produced in college.

Note: Kansas City and Oakland do not have picks in the second round.
