  • Nick's 2015 NFL Mock Draft - Three Rounds! v6.0

    As always, feedback, questions, and constructive criticism is welcome! Hopefully I didn't double-pick anyone with my first three rounder.



    ROUND ONE
    1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jameis Winston, QB, Florida State
    -Despite the civil lawsuit that was recently announced, I'm not sure the Bucs are going to alter their plans and look poised to still take Winston here. He has seemingly emerged as the top quarterback prospect through this process, displaying pro ready skills and poise with the game on the line.


    2. Tennessee Titans: Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon
    -This could be the spot for a blockbuster trade, but since I'm not projecting trades in this mock, I'm going to stick with Mariota in the two-spot. The Titans are as good of a team as any, because I just don't think you pass on a potential franchise quarterback due to Zach Mettenberger.


    3. Jacksonville Jaguars: Dante Fowler, DE/LB, Florida
    -The Fowler to Jacksonville connection remains strong in my mock drafts, though Leonard Williams being on the board might give the Jags some hesitation. Still, Fowler's fit into this scheme is very good and the Jaguars need some pass rush help on their defense.


    4. Oakland Raiders: Leonard Williams, DL, USC
    -The Raiders were second worst in the NFL in sacks, so adding the best defensive player if not the best overall player in the draft would go a long way to helping out. Williams could line up at defensive end on early downs before shifting inside to rush the passer from a tackle position.


    5. Washington Redskins: Vic Beasley, DE/LB, Clemson
    -Brian Orakpo left as a free agent, leaving the Redskins with Ryan Kerrigan and Trent Murphy as starters on the outside. Kerrigan is fine though he's in the final year of his contract, and Murphy could be pushed if not upgraded. Beasley is just the man for the job, having emerged as one of the best pass rushers in this class.


    6. New York Jets: Kevin White, WR, West Virginia
    -Sure, the Jets traded for Brandon Marshall. And they have Eric Decker. But if Geno Smith is going to be successful in New York, they need to surround him with as much talent as possible. Kevin White has skyrocketed into the top spot on some draft boards, so the Jets could be tempted to pull the trigger and add more talent to their offense.


    7. Chicago Bears: Amari Cooper, WR, Alabama
    -And then, there's the team that traded Marshall away. Their need at the position is obvious, but since they're switching to the 3-4 defensive scheme, the Bears could elect to go with a defensive front seven player. But I think Cooper is too good of value to pass up here, so he's the pick.


    8. Atlanta Falcons: Alvin Dupree, DE/LB, Kentucky
    -The Falcons have had a need for a pass rusher for a while now, and many believe they're going to try and solve it with this pick. There are 3-4 really good pass rushers at the top of this class, so it's likely the Falcons will be able to find someone they like. In this case, it's Bud Dupree out of Kentucky, a really nice fit as a hybrid rusher.


    9. New York Giants: Danny Shelton, DT, Washington
    -Very tempting for the Giants to go with an offensive lineman here, and ultimately they may, but they also need to do a better job stopping the run. Johnathan Hankins can't do it all himself, and adding Danny Shelton to the mix would really give the Giants some bulk in the middle of that defensive line.


    10. St. Louis Rams: Brandon Scherff, OL, Iowa
    -The Rams luck out and see Scherff fall to them here at the ten spot, and while Jeff Fisher and Les Snead could always surprise fans, it's hard to believe they wouldn't be excited with this outcome. Scherff would become an instant starter either at guard or at right tackle, wherever the Rams end up having the biggest need for his services.


    11. Minnesota Vikings: DeVante Parker, WR, Louisville
    -The Vikings may have acquired Mike Wallace from the Dolphins and already have Charles Johnson, but Cordarrelle Patterson hasn't lived up to expectations, and the temptation to reunite DeVante Parker with Teddy Bridgewater might be too good for them to pass up.


    12. Cleveland Browns: Ereck Flowers, OT, Miami
    -The Browns would have loved to see DeVante Parker or Danny Shelton slide here, but alas, it's not in the cards in this mock. With receiver and defensive tackle off the list, the Browns look for other areas to address. There were rumors last year that they could go offensive tackle early, looking for someone to replace Mitchell Schwartz. They end up doing it here, grabbing right tackle Ereck Flowers.


    13. New Orleans Saints: Randy Gregory, DE/LB, Nebraska
    -The Saints need to improve their defense, and signed Anthony Spencer and Parys Haralson to help their pass rush. But they could use more help, and they're going to benefit from Randy Gregory's positive Combine test by seeing him slip here. If he does, he might be too talented for them to pass on.


    14. Miami Dolphins: Trae Waynes, CB, Michigan State
    -The Dolphins really wanted to see a top receiver fall to this spot, and may ultimately trade up to secure one. But with no trades being projected, I have Miami sitting tight and taking one of the best players on the board, cornerback Trae Waynes of Michigan State, who could compete to start across from Brent Grimes immediately.


    15. San Francisco *****: Shane Ray, DE/LB, Missouri
    -San Francisco probably did not have plans to address the rush linebacker position in the first round, but as they see Missouri's Shane Ray slip to them, they take advantage of a value pick. The ***** have Ahmad Brooks and Aldon Smith, which affords them the luxury of bringing Ray along slowly and training him to play from a two point stance.


    16. Houston Texans: Arik Armstead, DL, Oregon
    -Houston might not be crazy about the value of a receiver here, and though there are some offensive linemen to consider, the Texans would love to get a better presence across from J.J. Watt on the defensive line. Arik Armstead has incredible size and potential for the five technique position, and would help improve a strength on the Texans roster.


    17. San Diego Chargers: Todd Gurley, RB, Georgia
    -San Diego is still very much in the Marcus Mariota sweepstakes, but in staying here, they could find another valuable offensive talent in Georgia's Todd Gurley. Ryan Mathews is gone, and while Branden Oliver showed flashes, he's best as a change of pace back. Gurley becomes the workhorse the Chargers are currently missing.


    18. Kansas City Chiefs: La'el Collins, OT, LSU
    -Receiver is an option for the needy Chiefs, but they're going to take advantage of LSU's La'el Collins still being on the board and grab him here. He could slide easily into their vacancy at right tackle, or they could try him out on the left side and see what former first overall pick Eric Fisher can do on the right side. Either way, Collins gives them options.


    19. Cleveland Browns (f/BUF): Breshad Perriman, WR, Central Florida
    -The Browns didn't find value at the receiver position earlier, but they've got some options here. Perriman is rising up draft boards, particularly after posting a blazing forty yard dash time at his pro day. Needing more weapons for Josh McCown, Cleveland pulls the trigger.


    20. Philadelphia Eagles: Landon Collins, S, Alabama
    -I think Landon Collins to the Eagles is a pretty good match, which almost guarantees it's not going to happen. Regardless, the Eagles have a big need at the position, and Collins is far and away the best safety in this class. If the Eagles also don't make a move up for Marcus Mariota, I think Collins is as likely a choice as any.


    21. Cincinnati Bengals: Andrus Peat, OT, Stanford
    -Neither of Cincinnati's starting tackles are under contract after 2015, which puts them in an interesting situation. They could make a strong push to resign both, but it's more than likely one of them is going to depart, which means a replacement will need to be found. Peat could step in and start on either side, thus giving the Bengals options.


    22. Pittsburgh Steelers: Kevin Johnson, CB, Wake Forest
    -The Steelers needed help in the secondary even before the retirements of Troy Polamalu and Ike Taylor. But losing that kind of veteran leadership just makes it more apparent that Pittsburgh needs to do something in their defensive backfield. Johnson is competing with a couple of other prospects to be the second corner off the board, and accomplishes that in this projection.


    23. Detroit Lions: Malcom Brown, DT, Texas
    -The Lions lost both Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley in free agency, and while they may have stopped the bleeding by trading for Haloti Ngata, they need another presence on the inside to really prevent the defensive interior from being an issue in 2015. Malcom Brown is one of the best players on the board at this position, and conveniently fills a need for the Lions.


    24. Arizona Cardinals: Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin
    -Andre Ellington was not an effective workhorse back; he averaged a mere 3.3 yards per carry on the ground and had issues with injuries. He's much better in a change of pace role, but that means the Cardinals will have to find someone to carry the rock the majority of the time. Fortunately, they find Melvin Gordon available for them here.


    25. Carolina Panthers: T.J. Clemmings, OT, Pittsburgh
    -Carolina signed Michael Oher in free agency and is saying that he'll be the franchise's left tackle this season. Oh boy. Even if that's true, the club could still use a right tackle. Clemmings is very appealing in that role, and he has the athletic ability to eventually replace Oher when he proves Carolina wrong.


    26. Baltimore Ravens: Jaelen Strong, WR, Arizona State
    -Torrey Smith has left Baltimore, and Steve Smith isn't getting any younger. The need for more wide receiver talent in Baltimore couldn't be overstated, so I expect the Ravens to take a wide out sooner rather than later on the draft. Despite some concerns about a wrist injury, I still think a first round selection is in the cards for Jaelen Strong.


    27. Dallas Cowboys: Byron Jones, CB, Connecticut
    -The Cowboys have one solid cornerback in Orlando Scandrick, and Sterling Moore had some moments last season, but they could really use another full time realible starter. Connecicut's Byron Jones has some upward momentum and could sneak into the bottom part of the first round. With the running backs off the board, corner is as good a pick as any for the Cowboys.


    28. Denver Broncos: D.J. Humphries, OT, Florida
    -If Peyton Manning is going to continue to find success at his age, he's going to need better protection. The right tackle spot has been a problem for the Broncos, so look for them to explore some potential solutions with this first pick in the draft. D.J. Humphries, if he's still on the board, would work very well.


    29. Indianapolis Colts: Cameron Erving, C, Florida State
    -A.Q. Shipley and Jonotthan Harrison split time at center last year, and neither was particularly effective. An upgrade is needed, and Cameron Erving really wowed some viewers by becoming one of the best centers in college football in 2014. He would be a great fit hiking the ball to Andrew Luck on Sundays.


    30. Green Bay Packers: Erik Kendricks, LB, UCLA
    -The Packers were so desperate for inside linebacker help that they moved Clay Matthews inside last season to man the position. While Matthews did a good job there, he's much better suited for the outside, so the Packers will need to find someone else to fill the role.


    31. New Orleans Saints (/SEA): Jalen Collins, CB, LSU
    -The Saints acquired this pick by trading away Jimmy Graham, and it may be tempting for them to add more offensive talent if the board falls the right way. But I still have Jalen Collins available at this spot, and the Saints could use some addition help at cornerback, where they were awful last season.


    32. New England Patriots: Eddie Goldman, DT, Florida State
    -The Patriots will do what the Patriots typically do: sit tight and watch the talent fall to them. In this case, they end up with Florida State's Eddie Goldman, and they're very much appreciative of the way the board falls, considering they had a need at the defensive tackle position even before Vince Wilfork left for Houston.




    ROUND TWO
    33. Tennessee Titans: Marcus Peters, CB, Washington
    =Tennessee bypassed defensive help to take a quarterback in the first, so now they come back and get a first round talent here in Marcus Peters.


    34. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Owamagbe Odighizuwa, DE, UCLA
    -Michael Johnson wasn't what Tampa expected and left town, so the Buccaneers need to reload the cabinet with another defensive end to help their pass rush.


    35. Oakland Raiders: Nelson Agholor, WR, USC
    -The Raiders passed on a receiver in the first round in order to take Leonard Williams, so they may consider taking a fast riser in Agholor here in the second to give Derek Carr more weapons.


    36. Jacksonville Jaguars: Shaq Thompson, LB, Washington
    -The Jaguars may not have been planning to double dip with another pick for their defensive front seven, but Thompson's value is strong and they need to replace Geno Hayes.


    37. New York Jets: A.J. Cann, OG, South Carolina
    -The first pick added talent on the perimeter of the offense, this one adds better protection to help keep the quarterback upright.


    38. Washington Redskins: Eric Rowe, CB, Utah
    -DeAngelo Hall has Achilles issues, and though the Redskins signed Chris Culliver, they'd be wise to look for some potential starting help.


    39. Chicago Bears: Jordan Phillips, DT, Oklahoma
    -Chicago passed on Danny Shelton in the first round in order to take receiver help, so they come back in Round Two and get their nose tackle here.


    40. New York Giants: Jake Fisher, OT, Oregon
    -The Giants passed on an offensive lineman in the first round, but are very pleased to see Jake Fisher here in the second.


    41. St. Louis Rams: Dorial Green-Beckham, WR, Oklahoma
    -The Rams have enough depth at receiver, and really only need a potential #1 target. Green-Beckham has that kind of talent, but comes with some baggage the Rams will have to monitor.


    42. Atlanta Falcons: Maxx Williams, TE, Minnesota
    -Tony Gonzalez's absence was felt on the Falcons' offense, so they've lucked out to find this draft's best tight end available here.


    43. Cleveland Browns: Carl Davis, DT, Iowa
    -The Browns weren't able to find their nose tackle in Round One, missing out on Danny Shelton. So they come back in Round Two and grab Iowa's Carl Davis.


    44. New Orleans Saints: Devin Funchess, WR/TE, Michigan
    -New Orleans might be high on Josh Hill, but if there's any team in the league that knows how to get the most out of a receiver/tight end 'tweener like Funchess, New Orleans is it.


    45. Minnesota Vikings: Benardrick McKinney, LB, Mississippi State
    -The Vikings need a better presence at the inside of their defense, and McKinney is the best inside linebacker on the board.


    46. San Francisco *****: Mario Edwards Jr., DE, Florida State
    -We still don't know whether Justin Smith is playing this year, and Darnell Dockett is only a temporary fix.


    47. Miami Dolphins: Laken Tomlinson, OG, Duke
    -Guard might be the Dolphins' biggest need, and Tomlinson is a favorite of online draftniks and looks to be a good value for teams in the second round.


    48. San Diego Chargers: Brett Hundley, QB, UCLA
    -The Chargers did not go with a QB in the first round of this mock, but they find their signal caller of the future here in Hundley.


    49. Kansas City Chiefs: Hroniss Grasu, C, Oregon
    -Losing Rodney Hudson hurt, but losing him to a division rival hurt even worse. The Chiefs need to restock at center.


    50. Buffalo Bills: Stephone Anthony, LB, Clemson
    -Regardless of whether it was the right move to trade Kiko Alonso for Shady McCoy, the bottom line is the Bills now have a hole at inside linebacker to fill.


    51. Houston Texans: Phillip Dorsett, WR, Miami
    -The Texans find their receiver here in Dorsett, who blazed at the Combine with a 4.33 forty yard dash.


    52. Philadelphia Eagles: Eli Harold, DE/LB, Virginia
    -The Eagles brought back Brandon Graham, have Connor Barwin, and last year's first round pick Marcus Smith, but you can never have too many pass rushers.


    53. Cincinnati Bengals: Michael Bennett, DT, Ohio State
    -Cincinnati could use an upgrade over Domata Peko, who graded out second worst among defensve tackles according to Pro Football Focus last year.


    54. Detroit Lions: Jay Ajayi, RB, Boise State
    -Is Joique Bell really ready to carry the load? He averaged less than four yards per carry last year. I wouldn't be shocked if Detroit brought in some more talent.


    55. Arizona Cardinals: Ronald Darby, CB, Florida State
    -Jerraud Powers was not particularly impressive last season, so the Cardinals would be wise to consider an upgrade.


    56. Pittsburgh Steelers: Danielle Hunter, DE/LB, LSU
    -Jason Worilds is gone, and Jarvis Jones has been a bust so far. Pass rush help is desperately needed in Pittsburgh.


    57. Carolina Panthers: Devin Smith, WR, Ohio State
    -Kelvin Benjamin was exciting as a rookie, but he needs someone across from him to help out.


    58. Baltimore Ravens: Quinten Rollins, CB, Miami (OH)
    -Without Jimmy Smith, Baltimore's personnel at cornerback was pretty poor. Look for them to add more talent on draft weekend.


    59. Denver Broncos: Tre' Jackson, OG, Florida State
    -More line help for Peyton as the Broncos try to fill the hole left by Orlando Franklin. You didn't expect Shelley Smith to do it, did you?


    60. Dallas Cowboys: Preston Smith, DE, Mississippi State
    -Sure, the Cowboys added Greg Hardy but who knows how much he sees the field. Smith is pretty solid value and insurance at this point.


    61. Indianapolis Colts: Paul Dawson, LB, TCU
    -Dawson tested poorly at the Combine but is still making a number of visits with teams that are likely interested in his services.


    62. Green Bay Packers: Nate Orchard, DE/LB, Utah
    -Moving Matthews back outside will help their pass rush, but they can't rely on Julius Peppers for the long term.


    63. Seattle Seahawks: Grady Jarrett, DT, Clemson
    -Seattle needs help pushing the pocket from the interior, so with their first pick, they'll add Clemson's Jarrett.


    64. New England Patriots: D'Joun Smith, CB, Florida Atlantic
    -The Patriots have brought in Robert McClain, Bradley Fletcher, and Chimdi Chekwa, but could still use more talent in the secondary.




    ROUND THREE
    65. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Cody Prewitt, S, Ole Miss
    -Mark Barron was traded away, and Dashon Goldson was a free agent bust for the club. Prewitt should compete to start from Day One.


    66. Tennessee Titans: Donovan Smith, OL, Penn State
    -Donovan Smith is a big offensive lineman who should emerge early as a starter either at right tackle or inside at guard.


    67. Jacksonville Jaguars: Ameer Abdullah, RB, Nebraska
    -No one was surprised that Toby Gerhart was a free agent bust, and while Denard Robinson showed some promise, some help is needed here.


    68. Oakland Raiders: Cedric Ogbuehi, OT, Texas A&M
    -Oakland has a hole on the right side of their offensive line, and Ogbuehi is a first round talent available here only due to injury. Great value for Oakland.


    69. Washington Redskins: Ibraheim Campbell, S, Northwestern
    -The Redskins traded for Dashon Goldson but still could use some help and competition for the other starting safety spot.


    70. New York Jets: Duke Johnson, RB, Miami
    -The Jets continue their offensive shopping spree by adding Johnson as someone who could be the future of their backfield.


    71. Chicago Bears: Bryce Petty, QB, Baylor
    -There was speculation as to whether or not Jay Cutler would even be back in Chicago this year; the Bears should start exploring what life will be like when he's gone.


    72. St. Louis Rams: Reese Dismukes, C, Auburn
    -The Rams also need help at center, and Jeff Fisher hasn't been afraid to go to the Auburn well before. Dismukes is experienced enough to compete to start right away.


    73. Atlanta Falcons: T.J. Yeldon, RB, Alabama
    -With Steven Jackson gone, the Falcons need an early down back to lead the way while Devonta Freeman and Antone Smith change things up.


    74. New York Giants: Damarious Randall, S, Arizona State
    -The Giants have virtually nothing at safety, so they're going to have to address it at some point in the draft.


    75. New Orleans Saints: Ali Marpet, OG, Hobart
    -After trading away Ben Grubbs, the Saints have an opening in the starting line-up at left guard that Marpet could at least compete for.


    76. Minnesota Vikings: P.J. Williams, CB, Florida State
    -Minnesota was tempted to go with a corner earlier, and benefit by seeing P.J. Williams slide here.


    77. Cleveland Browns: Denzel Perryman, LB, Miami
    -The Browns need an upgrade at inside linebacker over Craig Robertson, so Perryman would be tempting here.


    78. New Orleans Saints (f/MIA): Garrett Grayson, QB, Colorado State
    -Like it or not, the Saints need to start thinking of what life might be like after Drew Brees. Better to start preparing now.


    79. San Francisco *****: Rashad Greene, WR, Florida State
    -Torrey Smith and Anquan Boldin are pegged to start, but Greene can be groomed for an eventual feature role.


    80. Kansas City Chiefs: Tyler Lockett, WR, Kansas State
    -With their offensive line addressed in previous rounds, the Chiefs finally look for some value at receiver, taking Kansas State's Lockett.


    81. Buffalo Bills: Ty Sambrailo, OT, Colorado
    -The Bills really could use an upgrade over right tackle Seantrel Henderson.


    82. Houston Texans: B.J. Finney, C, Kansas State
    -Houston is toying with the idea of moving Ben Jones inside to center, but it wouldn't hurt to add another potential option to bolster the interior.

    83. San Diego Chargers: Daryl Williams, OT, Oklahoma
    -Williams is a massive player with surprising quickness who could be tried at left tackle or shift inside to guard.


    84. Philadelphia Eagles: Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, CB, Oregon
    -In Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, Chip Kelly goes with someone familiar to help round out his secondary.


    85. Cincinnati Bengals: Trey Flowers, DE, Arkansas
    -Michael Johnson returning is nice, but there's no guarantee he solves their pass rush problem.


    86. Arizona Cardinals: Hau'oli Kikaha, DE/LB, Washington
    -A pass rusher may be Arizona's greatest need on defense, even after the signing of LaMarr Woodley.


    87. Pittsburgh Steelers: Xavier Cooper, DT, Washington State
    -Brett Keisel was released, and Stephon Tuitt could at the very least use someone to push him.


    88. Detroit Lions: John Miller, OG, Louisville
    -The Lions need to find a replacement for Rob Sims at left guard, and should find some options on Day Two.


    89. Carolina Panthers: Tevin Coleman, RB, Indiana
    -DeAngelo Williams may not be in the picture anymore, but the Panthers understand the value of a talented backfield.


    90. Baltimore Ravens: Clive Walford, TE, Miami
    -Dennis Pitta is coming off of surgery, and at the very least, the Ravens could use some depth behind him since Owen Daniels left.


    91. Dallas Cowboys: David Johnson, RB, Northern Iowa
    -The Cowboys might opt to wait until Day Two to find some more talent in their offensive backfield.


    92. Denver Broncos: Jaquiski Tartt, S, Samford
    -Denver signed Darian Stewart to help shore up their safety group, but only for a two year deal. Tartt could be groomed behind him and see situational time.


    93. Indianapolis Colts: Jeremy Langford, RB, Michigan State
    -Sure, they signed Frank Gore, but that's really just a temporary fix.


    94. Green Bay Packers: Josh Shaw, CB, USC
    -Tramon Williams and Davon House left as free agents, so more talent will be needed to fill the void in the secondary.


    95. Seattle Seahawks: Arie Kouandjio, OG, Alabama
    -Kouandjio could help fill the hole vacated by James Carpenter.


    96. New England Patriots: Tre McBride, WR, William & Mary
    -The receivers in New England were still rather inconsistent, and Brandon Gibson's addition doesn't do much to change that.


    97. New England Patriots (comp): Mike Davis, RB, South Carolina
    -Shane Vereen and Stevan Ridley are both gone, and while the Patriots have some options at running back, more wouldn't hurt.


    98. Kansas City Chiefs (comp): Lorenzo Mauldin, LB, Louisville
    -Derrick Johnson is on the wrong side of 30 and is coming off an ACL injury. The Chiefs should consider a plan for the future.


    99. Cincinnati Bengals (comp): Jordan Hicks, LB, Texas
    -The Bengals brought back Rey Maualuga but he's pretty average; more talent at linebacker would be a wise decision.

      Now that the Senior Bowl is firmly in the rear view mirrior, here's an updated look at how things could shake out in the first round of the NFL Draft this year. As always, feedback and constructive criticism is welcome! ROUND ONE 1.

      by general counsel
      The Todd Gurley-less Rams finished their season 7-9 with a disappointing OT loss to the whiners by the score of 19-16 on the strength of terrible third down play on both sides of the ball, untimely penalties, terrible field goal kicking and some highly suspect play calling with the team poised to win the game in overtime. The Rams shortcomings against a 5-11 couldnt have been more obvious today. At the end of the day, Case Keenum is not an NFL starting qb, albeit a reasonable backup. Way too...

      by general counsel
      In what should be considered their most impressive win in the Fisher era, the Rams won their third game in a row by beating and beating up the seachickens in a tremendous 23-17 win. The Rams capitalized on 3 seachicken turnovers (one of which resulted in a defensive touchdown), didn't turn the ball over themselves, kept the penalties to a minimum, and scrounged out just enough offense to earn their first season sweep of the chickens since 2004. The Rams played their best half of the year jumping...

      by clarasDK
      Good write up.

      I think it was ugly that we accepted the penalty with the Seagulla on 4 and 10. Giving them a new (long) third down. I am pretty sure they would not have gone for it on 4 and 10.

      Else great game.
