Favorite Player to Draft in Round 2

The Footballguys staff lists the player they most-like drafting in the second round

This article is about a 7-minute read.

We got together with our Footballguys staff members and asked a simple question: Which player -- generally taken in the second round -- do you most-like having on your team?

Here are their answers.

Chad Parsons

I am a huge fan of Mike Evans as the price of the Round 2/3 turn, especially after taking an elite running back to open a team's draft. Josh Jacobs is the running back I like most of the Round 2 collection. For Jacobs, he had a successful rookie season without emphasizing his most glaring trait entering the NFL - his receiving prowess, which is bound to improve this year. For Evans, he is an established, historically so, receiver already with a high floor and ceiling combination and now getting Tom Brady. The continued drives due to fewer turnovers alone give Evans a boost.

Jason Wood

My favorite player on this list is probably the most contrarian, it's Aaron Jones. I have Jones ranked solidly in my Top 12, and would take him at the end of the first round if available. I'm vexed as to why Jones is being disregarded. He was amazing last year and was the true beneficiary of Matt LaFleur's arrival. For all the talk of how LaFleur would put Aaron Rodgers back in the MVP conversation, 2019 Rodgers looked exactly like 2017 and 2018 Rodgers. But Jones was dynamic. He ran for nearly 1,100 yards, was second on the team with 49 receptions, and scored 19 touchdowns. A.J. Dillon may push Jamaal Williams for the backup role, but he's not dethroning Jones this year.
