Round 2 Of 2011 NFL Mock Draft: Mark Ingram Finally Off The Board

Here is round two of the latest 2011 NFL Mock Draft from

33. New England Patriots: Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama. This is solid value for the Alabama workhorse, who represents a significant upgrade over BenJarvus Green-Ellis.

34. Buffalo Bills: Christian Ballard, DT, Iowa. An athletic, rangy, yet developmental five-tech end prospect that would eventually bookend 2010 third-round pick Alex Carrington.

35. Cincinnati Bengals: Allen Bailey, DE, Miami (FL). The Bengals got a Round 2 steal last year in Carlos Dunlap, and Bailey offers similar upside here.

36. Denver Broncos: Stephen Paea, DT, Oregon State. Terrific value here for Paea, even after adding Dareus in the first round. The Bucs went DT/DT last year, too.

37. Cleveland Browns: Marvin Austin, DT, North Carolina. He's a character risk, but he's also precisely the type of three-tech DT that Dick Jauron needs for his 4-3 defense.

38. Arizona Cardinals: Justin Houston, OLB, Georgia. The Vernon Gholston comparisons are already flying, but this is good value for a potentially excellent pass rusher.

39. Tennessee Titans: Andy Dalton, QB, TCU. Tennessee's need at QB is desperate, and while Dalton's not overly talented, he's earning high marks for his intangibles.

40. Dallas Cowboys: Rahim Moore, FS, UCLA. He's the best in a very weak safety class, but Moore has the range and ball skills that the Cowboys need.

41. Washington Redskins: Brooks Reed, DE, Arizona. Perhaps a better athlete than football player, but could eventually be an excellent complement to Brian Orakpo.

42. Houston Texans: Ras-I Dowling, CB, Virginia. Injuries have depressed his stock, but Dowling has the corner/safety versatility to make an instant impact in Houston.

43. Minnesota Vikings: Ryan Mallett, QB, Arkansas. Mallett's stock is red hot right now - so much so that he'd be a huge steal this late.

44. Detroit Lions: Johnny Patrick, CB, Louisville. Cornerback is Detroit's most obvious pressing need, and Patrick has rock solid Round 2 value.

45. San Francisco 49ers: Christian Ponder, QB, Florida State. Ponder has enough athletic ability, arm talent and intangibles for Jim Harbaugh to work with in his system.

46. Denver Broncos: Bruce Carter, OLB, North Carolina. It looks like he'll be healthy for the purported 2011 season, and is a terrific fit for John Fox and his defense.

47. St. Louis Rams: Mikel Leshoure, RB, Illinois. It's imperative that the Rams find help for Steven Jackson, and Leshoure offers a very similar set of skills.

48. Oakland Raiders: Ben Ijalana, OT, Villanova. Oakland's line is improving, and Ijalana is a versatile, high-upside add for this underrated team.

49. Jacksonville Jaguars: Colin Kaepernick, QB, Nevada. Kaepernick has the intangibles that the Jaguars covet, and David Garrard affords him time to realize his immense potential.

50. San Diego Chargers: Titus Young, WR, Boise State. He's not a perfect fit for the offense, but San Diego's skill group could really do with more speed.

51. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Clint Boling, OT, Georgia. The Bucs need help on the right side, and Boling is a gritty, blue-collar guy that could fit at guard or tackle.

52. New York Giants: Kyle Rudolph, TE, Notre Dame. Rudolph has first-round value, which makes him a terrific get here. He also happens to fit the Giants perfectly.

53. Indianapolis Colts: Mason Foster, OLB, Washington. Foster is an underrated, do-everything player that fits well on the weak or strong side for Jim Caldwell.

54. Philadelphia Eagles: Orlando Franklin, OT, Miami (FL). Andy Reid likes big tackles that he can cross-train inside, and Franklin fits that prototype athletically.

55. Kansas City Chiefs: Phil Taylor, DT, Baylor. Projected in the first round, he's poor value. Projected here, he's terrific value. He fits the Chiefs defense very well.

56. New Orleans Saints: Martez Wilson, ILB, Illinois. A terrific athlete, Wilson would play outside for Gregg Williams, and offer immediate contributions as a blitzer.

57. Seattle Seahawks: Leonard Hankerson, WR, Miami (FL). No matter who is at QB next year, teaming Hankerson with Mike Williams and Golden Tate is a huge upgrade.

58. Baltimore Ravens: Randall Cobb, WR, Kentucky. The Ravens need youth at receiver; Cobb could contribute as a slot option and return specialist right out of the gate.

59. Atlanta Falcons: Lance Kendricks, TE, Wisconsin. Short-term, he's another weapon on an offense that needs it. Long-term, he replaces future Hall of Fame player Tony Gonzalez.

60. New England Patriots: Rodney Hudson, OG, Florida State. An excellent football player and a great value here, Hudson could be a long-term center replacement for Dan Koppen.

61. San Diego Chargers: Jarvis Jenkins, DT, Clemson. Jenkins is an underrated player that projects as a future replacement to Jacques Cesaire at defensive end.

62. Chicago Bears: Drake Nevis, DT, LSU. Another unheralded DT prospect, Nevis is a plug-and-play three-technique that could start for the departing Tommie Harris.

63. Pittsburgh Steelers: Marcus Gilbert, OT, Florida. Gilbert is a riser with the ability to play either side. He's also a former teammate of Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey.

64. Green Bay Packers: Ryan Williams, RB, Virginia Tech. Green Bay thrives on value drafting. Williams is great value, and provides clarity at a position that the Pack have struggled to figure out.
