1st Round1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Jameis Winston QB, Florida State
The Buccaneers are most likely going to take a QB at No. 1 overall. They cut QB Josh McCown and QB Mike Glennon is a solid back-up. Winston, despite his character issues off the field is highly talented and played in an offense similar to what NFL teams run. He's a proven winner and should help turn around things for Tampa Bay as long as he stays out of trouble.
2. Tennessee Titans - Leonard Williams DE, USC
Tennessee was brutal against the run in 2014 allowing the 2nd most rushing yards per game. Enter Williams who is versatile and can play in the 5-technique for the Titans. Williams was a disruptive force at USC making big plays in opponents' backfields on the regular.
3. Jacksonville Jaguars - Dante Fowler DE, Florida
In last years NFL Draft, Jacksonville passed on Khalil Mack to take their potential franchise QB Blake Bortles. Fowler is an athletic edge rusher that can take over games and would help the Jaguars get a better pass rush on opposing teams. Current starting DE Chris Clemons will also turn 34 years old during the season.
4. Oakland Raiders - Kevin White WR, West Virginia
The Raiders may have found their franchise QB last season in Derek Carr. Now he just needs a legit No. 1 wide receiver to throw it to. That wide receiver could be Kevin White who was unstoppable in 2014 with West Virginia catching 109 passes for 1,447 yards and 10 touchdowns. He can take the top off a defense with his speed and most importantly has great hands.
5. Washington Redskins - Vic Beasley OLB, Clemson
OLB Brian Orakpo is a free agent so Beasley would replace him and start opposite of OLB Ryan Kerrigan. Beasley set the Clemson school record for career sacks and was named the ACC Defensive Player of the Year in 2014. His draft stock is very high after an excellent performance at the NFL Scouting Combine.
6. New York Jets - Marcus Mariota QB, Oregon
The Jets' QB's are incapable of winning football games without a strong defense and running game. They need a franchise QB that isn't prone to turnovers and a QB that makes everyone around them better. Mariota is exactly that kind of QB but will need some time to get comfortable in an NFL offense and become a leader.
7. Chicago Bears - Danny Shelton NT, Washington
The Bears are likely switching to a 3-4 defense under new defensive coordinator Vic Fangio. With that, they need a big human being to plug up the middle and stop the run. Shelton fits the criteria as a massive football player who moves really well for his size. Chicago's defense has been an embarrassment to their fans the last two seasons and Shelton is a start to getting the defense right.
8. Atlanta Falcons - Randy Gregory OLB, Nebraska
The Falcons have to draft a pass-rusher early that can come off the edge and get to the quarterback. Gregory is one of those players and would excel under new head coach Dan Quinn. DE Kroy Biermann led the team in sacks last season with just 4.5 and he's a free agent as is DE Osi Umenyiora.
9. New York Giants - Brandon Scherff OT, Iowa
The Giants offensive line and QB Eli Manning needs a player like Scherff who can actually play offensive tackle unlike OT Justin Pugh who needs to be kicked inside at guard. The Giants run game wasn't good last season as they averaged just 3.6 yards per carry.
10. St. Louis Rams - Amari Cooper WR, Alabama
The Rams have tried to upgrade the receiving corps over the years. They just haven't been very good at doing it and QB Sam Bradford always seems to be hurt. It's probably not likely that Cooper falls to them but they need to get someone who can step in and be the guy. WR Kenny Britt is a free agent and WR Tavon Austin hasn't developed into the big time playmaker he was supposed to be.
11. Minnesota Vikings - Landon Collins SS, Alabama
Minnesota had a good defense in 2014 but they still have some holes to fill before they can become an excellent defense. One of those holes is at safety. Collins is a heavy hitter with good range in coverage and would help out S Harrison Smith a lot. The Vikings have to get better in the secondary so they won't continually get burned by the Packers, Lions and Bears' offensive weapons.
12. Cleveland Browns - DeVante Parker WR, Louisville
WR Josh Gordon is suspended again for the year and the rest of the receivers for Cleveland are No. 3 options at best. Parker has great body control and would be an excellent weapon for whoever is at quarterback for the Browns next season. With Parker, the Browns should run the ball better with what could be lighter boxes.
13. New Orleans Saints - Shane Ray OLB, Missouri
The key to defensive coordinator Rob Ryan's defense is getting pressure on quarterbacks. The Saints defense didn't get enough of that in 2014 outside of DE Cameron Jordan and OLB Junior Galette. Ray has an explosive first step off of the ball and is much needed opposite of Galette. A better pass rush will certainly help their secondary that wasn't good last season. Ray had a monster year last season for Missouri recording 13 sacks and 22.5 tackles for loss.
14. Miami Dolphins - Trae Waynes CB, Michigan State
The Dolphins have an excellent cornerback in Brent Grimes but need another CB to start opposite of him. Miami recently cut CB Cortland Finnegan also. Waynes is a lengthy, fast CB that can shut down receivers as he plays the ball in the air well. Waynes is also pretty physical and will support the run.
15. San Francisco 49ers - Alvin Dupree OLB, Kentucky
Dupree had an excellent NFL Scouting Combine which should solidify him as a Top-20 selection in the 2015 NFL Draft. However, at this point he is more of an athlete than football player similar to what Vikings OLB Anthony Barr was before the draft last year. San Francisco could make this pick because they can't possibly trust OLB Aldon Smith and OLB Ahmad Brooks could be released.
16. Houston Texans - Andrus Peat OT, Stanford
Houston really needs a QB but there aren't any worth a selection here. They should re-sign QB Ryan Mallett and hope he plays well in 2015. Peat or any other offensive tackle could be an option for the Texans who have needed to upgrade the right tackle spot for a few seasons now. Current starter OT Derek Newton will be a free agent this off-season.
17. San Diego Chargers - T.J. Clemmings OT, Pittsburgh
San Diego's offensive line was in shambles by the end of the 2014 season. The Chargers re-signed OT King Dunlap. However, there are rumors that San Diego wants to move OT D.J. Fluker to guard which would open up a spot at right tackle. Clemmings didn't have a good Senior Bowl week but he has great ability and potential. QB Philip Rivers needs time in the pocket and a better run game. Clemmings should help both.
18. Kansas City Chiefs - La'el Collins OT, LSU
OT Eric Fisher has been a disappointment for the Chiefs being a former No. 1 overall pick. While Fisher will still start next year; the Chiefs still need another offensive tackle as they lack depth and OT Ryan Harris will be a free agent. Collins would help immensely in the Chiefs important running game and protect QB Alex Smith while he tries to not throw it to his wide receivers.
19. Cleveland Browns - Owamagbe Odighizuwa OLB, UCLA
Last season, the Browns were the worst team in trying to stop the run. Odighizuwa was fantastic against the run while at UCLA and he's an explosive player. At the Combine, he showed he could play outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense. OLB Barkevious Mingo hasn't quite lived up to his Top-10 selection and OLB Jabaal Sheard is about to become a free agent.
20. Philadelphia Eagles - Marcus Peters CB, Washington
Philadelphia is pretty awful at covering opposing WR's. They allowed the 2nd most passing yards in the NFL only ahead of the Atlanta Falcons. CB Bradley Fletcher is a free agent and CB Cary Williams was released. Peters is a great talent that will slow down the WR's of the NFC East but does have his off the field concerns.
21. Cincinnati Bengals - Ereck Flowers OT, Miami
Flowers could come in and be the franchise left tackle for the Bengals which would move OT Andrew Whitworth to guard where he has played very well in the past. Cincinnati has two quality running backs and Flowers will open up holes for them and also give QB Andy Dalton more time in the pocket to throw to WR A.J. Green.
22. Pittsburgh Steelers - Maxx Williams TE, Minnesota
Pittsburgh will eventually have to replace a soon to be 33 year old TE Heath Miller. Williams had an excellent year for Minnesota catching eight touchdowns and making highlight reel plays. Miller and Williams would make an awesome TE duo and help out QB Ben Roethlisberger much more. Williams had a great NFL Scouting Combine and followed that up with an excellent Pro Day.
23. Detroit Lions - Malcom Brown DT, Texas
What was once the strength of the team; is now one of the biggest weaknesses with DT's Ndamukong Suh, Nick Fairley and C.J. Mosley all about to become free agents. The Lions will have to address the defensive tackle spot in the draft as they don't have the money to sign them all back. Brown is a powerful DT that should help Detroit stay as one of the best run stopping defenses in the NFL.
24. Arizona Cardinals - Cameron Erving OC, Florida State
Erving is an offensive lineman that can play at all five spots on the offensive line. Arizona struggled to run the ball during the 2014 season and it mostly had to do with the ineptness of the interior offensive line. Once Erving moved to center for Florida State last season; their running game became instantly better along with their pass protection.
25. Carolina Panthers - Jaelen Strong WR, Arizona State
After WR Kelvin Benjamin, the Panthers don't have a quality receiver. Strong has the potential to be a No. 1 WR but wouldn't have the pressure to become one in Carolina. He has great hands and showed off his speed and jumping ability at the Scouting Combine with a 4.44 40-yard dash and 42'' vertical. Benjamin and Strong would be a spectacular WR duo for QB Cam Newton.
26. Baltimore Ravens - Dorial Green-Beckham WR, Oklahoma
Baltimore could use a potentially great No. 1 WR in their offense. WR's Torrey Smith and Steve Smith were both good last year but Torrey will be a free agent this off-season and Steve will be 36 years old in 2015. Green-Beckham is a risk with his off the field issues but he's as talented if not more talented than the receivers going ahead of him in this mock.
27. Dallas Cowboys - Shaq Thompson OLB, Washington
Thompson is a playmaker and would give Dallas a stud at linebacker. He could also potentially play safety for them and even running back if RB DeMarco Murray isn't retained. OLB's Bruce Carter and Justin Durant are going to be free agents also. Thompson should be a perfect fit in defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli's Tampa-2 defense.
28. Denver Broncos - Jordan Phillips NT, Oklahoma
Denver will run a 3-4 defense under new defensive coordinator Wade Phillips. With that, they'll need to find a nose tackle for their defense. That's if the Broncos can't re-sign NT Terrance Knighton. NT Jordan Phillips can be his replacement if they don't. Phillips is young with the potential to be a dominant player in the league.
29. Indianapolis Colts - Melvin Gordon RB, Wisconsin
QB Andrew Luck needs a running game to take some pressure off of him. RB Trent Richardson has been a huge bust and RB's Ahmad Bradshaw and Vick Ballard can't stay healthy for a full season. Gordon is an outstanding RB who can carry a team on his back. The comparisons to Kansas City RB Jamaal Charles don't hurt either.
30. Green Bay Packers - Eddie Goldman NT, Florida State
NT's Letroy Guion and B.J. Raji are both impending free agents. Green Bay's defense must have a player to plug up the middle. Goldman has the size and ability to stuff opposing run games. The Packers run defense hasn't been good for several years now and it's about time that they try and fix that. Especially with all of the physical run games that they may face in the playoffs.
31. Seattle Seahawks - Breshad Perriman WR, UCF
WR's Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse may think they are stellar wide receivers but they are delusional. QB Russell Wilson needs a legit No. 1 WR to throw to. The Seahawks front office has failed him by not re-signing Lions WR Golden Tate and trading for/away WR Percy Harvin. Perriman has good hands along with NFL bloodlines and could be a fantastic weapon for Wilson.
32. New England Patriots - Todd Gurley RB, Georgia
The Patriots took a risk by drafting DT Dominique Easley in the 1st Round last year who was coming off of a torn ACL. Gurley is another player coming off of a torn ACL and could absolutely dominate the NFL once healthy. Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount is somewhat shifty but doesn't have the breakaway speed that Gurley has. RB's Shane Vereen and Stevan Ridley are soon to be free agents.
2nd Round33. Tennessee Titans - Eli Harold OLB, Virginia
Even if the Titans re-sign OLB Derrick Morgan; another pass rusher is needed.
34. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Danielle Hunter DE, LSU
DE's Adrian Clayborn and Da'Quan Bowers are both impending free agents.
35. Oakland Raiders - Eric Kendricks ILB, UCLA
The Butkus Award winner would be a big upgrade over ILB Miles Burris.
36. Jacksonville Jaguars - D.J. Humphries OT, Florida
Humphries has excellent upside and the Jags allowed an NFL high 71 sacks in 2014.
37. New York Jets - Kevin Johnson CB, Wake Forest
The Jets are desperate for cornerbacks and Johnson has great cover skills.
38. Washington Redskins - P.J. Williams CB, Florida State
Williams is a tall, athletic and highly physical corner that Washington could use.
39. Chicago Bears - Arik Armstead DE, Oregon
Armstead has a lot of potential and will be another piece to the Bears new 3-4 defense.
40. New York Giants - A.J. Cann OG, South Carolina
Another investment in the offensive line.
41. St. Louis Rams - Laken Tomlinson OG, Duke
The Rams need to load up on lineman to keep QB Sam Bradford from getting hit.
42. Atlanta Falcons - Jake Fisher OT, Oregon
Atlanta's offensive line was in awful shape all of last season. Fisher is versatile.
43. Cleveland Browns - Brett Hundley QB, UCLA
QB's Josh McCown and Johnny Manziel are Cleveland's options right now.
44. New Orleans Saints - Quinten Rollins CB, Miami (OH)
Patrick Robinson is a free agent and the Saints need someone opposite CB Keenan Lewis.
45. Minnesota Vikings - Benardrick McKinney ILB, Mississippi State
McKinney is a freak who can chase down ball carriers from sideline-to-sideline.
46. San Francisco 49ers - Sammie Coates WR, Auburn
WR Michael Crabtree is a free agent. WR Anquan Boldin is old.
47. Miami Dolphins - Devin Funchess WR, Michigan
Funchess had a poor 40-time at 4.7 but he'll provide mismatches in the NFL if used right.
48. San Diego Chargers - Arie Kouandjio OG, Alabama
The Chargers need a lot of help on the interior offensive line.
49. Kansas City Chiefs - Cody Prewitt S, Ole Miss
Kansas City needs to find someone to try and replace S Eric Berry who has Hodgkin lymphoma.
50. Buffalo Bills - Jay Ajayi RB, Boise State
Head coach Rex Ryan wants to run the ball. Ajayi can lighten load for RB LeSean McCoy.
51. Houston Texans - Devin Smith WR, Ohio State
WR Andre Johnson won't be back so the Texans need someone to replace him.
52. Philadelphia Eagles - Hauoli Kikaha OLB, Washington
Philly needs some depth behind OLB Connor Barwin. Released OLB Trent Cole.
53. Cincinnati Bengals - Carl Davis DT, Iowa
Cincinnati was dead last in sacks with 20 on the season. J.J. Watt and Justin Houston had more by themselves.
54. Detroit Lions - Jalen Collins CB, LSU
Collins fits the profile of what the Lions look for in CB's and Rashean Mathis is a free agent.
55. Arizona Cardinals - Nate Orchard OLB, Utah
Orchard may not want to be an outside linebacker but he's capable of doing it.
56. Pittsburgh Steelers - Byron Jones CB, Connecticut
Top performer at the Scouting Combine and Pittsburgh's CB's were torched last season.
57. Carolina Panthers - Cedric Ogbuehi OT, Texas A&M
Carolina had issues all of last season at offensive tackle.
58. Baltimore Ravens - D'Joun Smith CB, Florida Atlantic
The Ravens secondary was lost once CB Jimmy Smith got injured last season.
59. Denver Broncos - Ty Sambrailo OT, Colorado State
Denver has no depth on the offensive line and need help everywhere.
60. Dallas Cowboys - Michael Bennett DT, Ohio State
Bennett is an immediate upgrade for the Cowboys front-4.
61. Indianapolis Colts - Mario Edwards DE, Florida State
DE Cory Redding is a free agent and they released DE Ricky Jean-Francois.
62. Green Bay Packers - Denzel Perryman ILB, Miami
The Packers have cut ILB's A.J. Hawk and Brad Jones.
63. Seattle Seahawks - Alex Carter CB, Stanford
CB Byron Maxwell will be a free agent. Maybe Carter will be as good as the other Stanford guy.
64. New England Patriots - Ali Marpet OG, Hobart
Marpet was great at the Senior Bowl and NFL Combine.
3rd Round65. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Tre Jackson OG, Florida State
Jackson will help improve Tampa's run game and pass protection.
66. Tennessee Titans - Daryl Williams OT, Oklahoma
Need a right tackle after releasing OT Michael Oher and OT Michael Roos retiring.
67. Jacksonville Jaguars - Reese Dismukes OC, Auburn
The center position for the Jaguars was a disaster last season.
68. Oakland Raiders - Preston Smith DE, Mississippi State
Last year, Oakland registered the 2nd fewest sacks in the NFL with 22.
69. Washington Redskins - Jaquiski Tartt SS, Samford
The safeties for Washington were bad last year and Tartt has similar size/athleticism to Landon Collins.
70. New York Jets - Tevin Coleman RB, Indiana
The Chris Johnson era in New York didn't last long.
71. Chicago Bears - Anthony Harris S, Virginia
The Bears' safeties were completely lost for most of the 2014 NFL season.
72. St. Louis Rams - Hroniss Grasu OC, Oregon
Current starting center Scott Wells is 34 years old and wasn't productive last season.
73. Atlanta Falcons - Stephone Anthony ILB, Clemson
Anthony is highly athletic and the Falcons need to improve at inside linebacker.
74. New York Giants - Xavier Cooper DT, Washington State
Cooper would complement DT Johnathan Hankins well in the Giants defense.
75. New Orleans Saints - Paul Dawson ILB, TCU
Dawson's stock may fall after his 4.93 40-yard dash but he has good instincts.
76. Minnesota Vikings - David Johnson RB, Northern Iowa
RB Adrian Peterson may not be back so Johnson can complement RB Jerick McKinnon.
77. Cleveland Browns - Jesse James TE, Penn State
TE Jordan Cameron is a pending free agent and he has concussion issues.
78. Miami Dolphins - Mitch Morse OG, Missouri
The Dolphins need a guard so they can move Mike Pouncey back to center.
79. San Francisco 49ers - Ifo Ekpre-Olomu CB, Oregon
Coming off a torn ACL but will be great depth for the 49ers once healthy.
80. Kansas City Chiefs - Nelson Agholor WR, USC
Agholor can stretch the field but QB Alex Smith probably wouldn't throw it to him.
81. Buffalo Bills - Garrett Grayson QB, Colorado State
Buffalo doesn't have faith in QB E.J. Manuel as the starter.
82. Houston Texans - Derron Smith FS, Fresno State
S Kendrick Lewis is an impending free agent. Smith is a ball hawk.
83. San Diego Chargers - Phillip Dorsett WR, Miami
WR Eddie Royal is about to be a free agent and Dorsett is a better Brandin Cooks IMO.
84. Philadelphia Eagles - Ronald Darby CB, Florida State
Darby has good size and the athletic ability to actually cover wide receivers.
85. Cincinnati Bengals - Kwon Alexander OLB, LSU
Alexander can start at strongside linebacker for the Bengals.
86. Arizona Cardinals - Eric Rowe CB, Utah
Tall, long, athletic corner that should fit Arizona's system.
87. Pittsburgh Steelers - Lorenzo Mauldin OLB, Louisville
OLB Jason Worilds is a soon to be free agent and OLB Jarvis Jones hasn't panned out yet.
88. Detroit Lions - Donovan Smith OT, Penn State
Smith could start at left guard or right tackle for Detroit from Day 1.
89. Carolina Panthers - Ameer Abdullah RB, Nebraska
Abdullah could be a perfect complement to Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart.
90. Baltimore Ravens - Duke Johnson RB, Miami
RB Justin Forsett is about to be a free agent so Baltimore may need a running back.
91. Dallas Cowboys - Josh Shaw CB, USC
CB Orlando Scandrick needs help. Shaw could play corner or safety.
92. Denver Broncos - Clive Walford TE, Miami
Denver may not re-sign TE Julius Thomas. Walford has receiving ability and can block.
93. Indianapolis Colts - Steven Nelson CB, Oregon State
Indy lacks quality depth at cornerback behind CB Vontae Davis.
94. Green Bay Packers - Davis Tull OLB, Chattanooga
Tull was a stud at the FCS level and could eventually start once OLB Julius Peppers is gone.
95. Seattle Seahawks - John Miller OG, Louisville
The Seahawks need to upgrade at left guard. OG James Carpenter is a free agent.
96. New England Patriots - Chris Conley WR, Georgia
Conley could be an excellent deep threat for QB Tom Brady.
