If you missed part one, here it is: part 1
After posting my first clone draft, some have indicated that some positions of need were not addressed, particularly in the case of our favorite team. I was aware of this when I wrote my original post but nevertheless, decided that a second round might be a bit difficult to put together. However, after it being requested, I will continue the draft. Clone Roger Goodell sighs, as he realizes that his work is far from complete. Here, again, are the premises:
- Every person on the planet has been cloned (with all the same football IQ and ability), and their respective clones have entered the NFL draft.
- The real NFL draft has already happened.
- The teams draft picks are in the order they would be before trades, and no trades can be made.
Join me after the jump for the second round of the 2012 NFL clone draft.

Overall notes: Youth prevails in the second round, receivers, both big and small, are snatched up like diamond covered Twinkies, and defensive players make up 13 of the final 16 picks. The G-men’s defensive front seven becomes quite intimidating. Brian Orakpo will be in two places on the field at once… twice a year.
