NFL Mock Draft 5.0

NFL Mock Draft 5.0 (April 27, 2015)

Round One

1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Jameis Winston, QB (Florida State)

Winston is a top-notch quarterback who will immediately improve his team by being on the field. He will thrive under the tutelage some of the league’s best coaches.

2. Tennessee Titans- Marcus Mariota, QB (Oregon)

As we get closer to the draft, it is appearing more likely that the Titans keep this selection and pick Marcus Mariota to compete for the starting quarterback job. With that said, it seems likely they will be open to trading the selection on draft day.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars- Leonard Williams, DT (Southern Cal)

David Caldwell surprised many with his selection of Blake Bortles last year, and it seems like he values making the right selection for the team’s future. Leonard Williams is the draft’s best defensive player, and he’d be prudent to improve his defensive line with this pick.

4. Oakland Raiders- Amari Cooper, WR (Alabama)

Assuming Leonard Williams is off the board, it seems like the Raiders will turn to drafting a receiver here. Amari Cooper and Kevin White both deserve strong consideration, but the Alabama receiver has superior game tape and collegiate production.

5. Washington Redskins- Dante Fowler Jr., OLB (Florida)

Fowler is a solid pass rusher with freakish intangibles and athletic ability. He will be an immediate game-changer wherever he lands on draft night.

6. New York Jets- Kevin White, WR (West Virginia)

The Jets can go in many directions here, one of which includes drafting a third starting-caliber receiver to improve the Jets’ pass game. Coming off a strong combine performance, Kevin White’s versatility and athleticism are second-to-none.

7. Chicago Bears- Vic Beasley, OLB (Clemson)

It is important for the Bears to target role players for their new defensive scheme, and Vic Beasley would be a perfect fit for Fangio’s formation as a rush linebacker. He is a flat-out baller who has only supplemented strong game tape with a great pre-draft process and deserves to be a top ten pick.

8. Atlanta Falcons- Bud Dupree, OLB (Kentucky)

The Falcons desperately need to add a defensive end to improve their pass rush, and Dupree would be a solid fit as a “LEO” type player.

9. New York Giants- Ereck Flowers, OT (Miami)

Jerry Reese needs to draft a true blindside tackle to protect Eli Manning, as Will Beatty won’t be a long-term option at left tackle. Flowers has great intangibles and is a risk worth taking here for the Giants.

10. St. Louis Rams- Brandon Scherff, OT (Iowa)

The release of Jake Long created a hole along the Rams offensive line, and adding Brandon Scherff will fill that need and add a positive presence in the team’s locker room.

11. Minnesota Vikings- DeVante Parker, WR (Louisville)

Teddy Bridgewater will be psyched if this ends up being the selection. He needs more receiving options, and adding his favorite college target is a step in the right direction. DeVante Parker will give him a true top option and create mismatches with his size and athleticism.

12. Cleveland Browns- Todd Gurley, RB (Georgia)

Although running backs normally aren’t taken in the first round, Todd Gurley is an exception with his monstrous athleticism and game tape production. He will immediately improve the Browns offense from the moment he takes the field.

13. New Orleans Saints- Trae Waynes, CB (Michigan State)

The Saints are in a tough spot here with the questions surrounding Randy Gregory and Shane Ray. At the moment, it seems like they spurn both in favor of Trae Waynes and choose to address their need at cornerback with their first (of many) selections.

14. Miami Dolphins- Breshad Perriman, WR (Central Florida)

If Miami’s goal is to make the playoffs next year, then they can afford the luxury of adding an immediate-impact receiver like Perriman to improve the team’s pass game. His speed will keep safeties honest and he’ll create a dangerous pairing with Kenny Stills and Jarvis Landry.

15. San Francisco 49ers- Arik Armstead, DE (Oregon)

With the plethora of talented cornerbacks in the second round, the Niners can afford to look elsewhere with their first round pick. Armstead is solid value here, and he won’t be rushed into action assuming Justin Smith returns next season.

16. Houston Texans- Randy Gregory, OLB (Nebraska)

It never hurts to have too many pass rushers, and drafting Gregory to pair with Clowney will create nightmares for opposing offensive linemen.

17. San Diego Chargers- La’El Collins, OT (Louisiana State)

The signing of Orlando Franklin confirms the Chargers’ desire to have versatile linemen, and La’El Collins fits that description as he is able to play both guard and tackle. Protecting Philip Rivers should be a high priority if they want to make a run at a championship.

18. Kansas City Chiefs- Kevin Johnson, CB (Wake Forest)

The Chiefs lack depth at cornerback, and could go for Kevin Johnson to fill their starting spot across Sean Smith.

19. Cleveland Browns- Andrus Peat, OT (Stanford)

Andrus Peat would solidify the Browns’ starting five cross their offensive line and give management a veteran-like presence in the locker room. Those are both pros which should make him the selection on draft night if he’s available here.

20. Philadelphia Eagles- Nelson Agholor, WR (Southern Cal)

Chip Kelly will make this an interesting and debatable selection if this offseason is any indicator. Nelson Agholor has been shooting up draft boards as of late, and could go as high as fourteenth overall.

21. Cincinnati Bengals- Danny Shelton, DT (Washington)

Mike Brown always seems to harp on value, which he would do by drafting Shelton and filling a need at defensive tackle.

22. Pittsburgh Steelers- Byron Jones, CB (Connecticut)

Byron Jones’ athleticism and intangibles are among the best in the draft, and he’d fill a need at cornerback here for the Steelers.

23. Detroit Lions- Shane Ray, OLB (Missouri)

The Lions have drafted defensive linemen with character problems in the past (Nick Fairley), and shouldn’t be hesitant to do so again if Shane Ray falls this far on draft night.

24. Arizona Cardinals- Melvin Gordon, RB (Wisconsin)

The Cardinals could seriously contend for the Super Bowl if they go bold and take Melvin Gordon with their first round pick. He’d form a great platoon with Ellington at running back.

25. Carolina Panthers- D.J. Humphries, OT (Florida)

Protecting Cam Newton should be a top priority, and drafting a tackle of D.J. Humphries’ caliber with their first round pick would be a step in the right direction.

26. Baltimore Ravens- Jaelen Strong, WR (Arizona State)

Ozzie Newsome has allowed the Ravens’ receiving corps to become dangerously thin, which might be an indicator that he wants to draft a receiver at some point in the draft. Strong is the best receiver available here, and seems like a logical choice if he’s available here on draft night.

27. Dallas Cowboys- Jalen Collins, CB (Louisiana State)

Morris Claiborne has been a failure in Dallas, and the team must look to replace him with a rookie cornerback at some point in the draft. Jalen Collins makes sense, as he provides strong value here while filling a need.

28. Denver Broncos- Jake Fisher, OT (Oregon)

Draft rumors have Jake Fisher flying up draft boards, and it is possible he goes as high as twenty-fifth on draft night. He would fill a need for the Broncos and will likely be in the conversation during draft night if the team doesn’t move up or down.

29. Indianapolis Colts- Cameron Erving, OG (Florida State)

The Colts’ interior offensive line is very weak, and can afford to be upgraded. Cameron Erving is one of the best offensive linemen in the draft, and its hard to imagine Ryan Grigson passing on him if he’s available here.

30. Green Bay Packers- Eric Kendricks, ILB (UCLA)

Eric Kendricks’ stock has been flying high, and he could be taken unexpectedly early on draft night. Needless to say, this would be a smart pick for the Packers.

31. New Orleans Saints- Phillip Dorsett, WR (Miami)

With the team’s bold offseason, it wouldn’t be surprising if they targeted a receiver early on in the draft. Phillip Dorsett has impressed many during the pre-draft process, and he might be a fringe first-rounder on draft night.

32. New England Patriots- Malcom Brown, DT (Texas)

Although he hasn’t necessarily been connected to this team, Malcom Brown is first-round talent and the Patriots are too smart to pass on him if he falls this far on draft night. With that said, weirder things have happened on draft night.

33. TEN- T.J. Clemmings, OT (Pittsburgh)

34. TB- Landon Collins, S (Alabama)

35. OAK- Eddie Goldman, DT (Florida State)

36. JAX- Marcus Peters, CB (Washington)

37. NYJ- Eli Harold, OLB (Virginia)

38. WAS- Donovan Smith, OT (Penn State)

39. CHI- Devin Smith, WR (Ohio State)

40. NYG- Damarious Randall, S (Arizona State)

41. STL- Dorial Green-Beckham, WR (Oklahoma)

42. ATL- Maxx Williams, TE (Minnesota)

43. CLE- Jordan Phillips, DT (Oklahoma)

44. NO- Owamagbe Odighizuwa, OLB (UCLA)

45. MIN- Cedric Ogbuehi, OT (Texas A&M)

46. SF- Ronald Darby, CB (Florida State)

47. MIA- Stephone Anthony, ILB (Clemson)

48. SD- Tevin Coleman, RB (Indiana)

49. KC- Laken Tomlinson, OG (Duke)

50. BUF- Denzel Perryman, ILB (Miami)

51. HOU- Devin Funchess, WR (Michigan)

52. PHI- Eric Rowe, CB (Utah)

53. CIN- Mario Edwards Jr., DE (Florida State)

54. DET- T.J. Yeldon, RB (Alabama)

55. ARZ- Preston Smith, OLB (Mississippi State)

56. PIT- Hau’oli Kikaha, OLB (Washington)

57. CAR- Sammie Coates, WR (Auburn)

58. BAL- Quinten Rollins, CB (Miami OH)

59. DEN- Garrett Grayson, QB (Colorado State)

60. DAL- Jay Ajayi, RB (Boise State)

61. IND- Steven Nelson, CB (Oregon State)

62. GB- Grady Jarrett, DT (Clemson)

63. SEA- Shaq Thompson, OLB (Washington)

Mid-March Mock Draft

Mid-March Mock Draft (3/29/2015):

1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Jameis Winston, QB- Florida State

Seems most likely at this point. This pick will come down to Winston and Mariota, with the FSU QB as the frontrunner.

2. Tennessee Titans- Marcus Mariota, QB- Oregon

I’m changing this pick from Williams, because it seems more likely that Tennessee trades out or takes Mariota to become their franchise quarterback.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars- Dante Fowler, DE- Florida

Changing this pick from Gregory, as Fowler seems to be a better fit in their system and hasn’t recently failed a drug test like the former Nebraska star.

4. Oakland Raiders- Leonard Williams, DE- Southern Cal

There seems to be a mutual attraction between Williams and the Raiders, and I think he’s the likely pick if available here.

5. Washington Redskins- Vic Beasley, OLB- Clemson

Beasley is the top 3-4 rusher available at this spot now that Gregory failed a drug test, which will undoubtedly hurt his draft stock. Doesn’t hurt that Beasley’s stock is rising either.

6. New York Jets- Shane Ray, OLB- Missouri

Jets might as well take the best available player with this selection, but it seems likely they will either trade up for Mariota or down to garner picks. Ray would be a strong addition to their pass rush.

7. Chicago Bears- Kevin White, WR- West Virginia

Brandon Marshall’s trade to the Jets opens up a need at receiver, where the Bears should seek to draft a target to pair with Jeffery. White has killed it in the pre-draft process and Chicago would be a logical landing spot for him.

8. Atlanta Falcons- Trae Waynes, CB- Michigan State

The Falcons could afford an upgrade at cornerback, where Alford might be better suited in the nickel as a third option. Waynes could step in and start immediately, and would affirm the new coach’s commitment to having a strong secondary.

9. New York Giants- Andrus Peat, OT- Stanford

Although they have other needs, I’m sticking with Peat here because the Giants need to protect Manning and Pugh is a better fit at right guard.

10. St. Louis Rams- Amari Cooper, WR- Alabama

The Rams need to get a WR #1 now that they traded for Nick Foles to start at quarterback. Cooper is great value here.

11. Minnesota Vikings- Landon Collins, S- Alabama

With no blatantly obvious needs, they could afford to find an impact player to improve their secondary. Collins would pair very well with Harrison Smith in the Viking’s defensive backfield.

12. Cleveland Browns- Danny Shelton, DT- Washington

Cleveland has to address their run defense, and Shelton is a value pick here. Makes sense.

13. New Orleans Saints- Brandon Scherff, OT/G- Iowa

The trade of Ben Grubbs opened a need at guard, which Scherff would be well-suited to play at the next level.

14. Miami Dolphins- DeVante Parker, WR- Louisville

Picking a wideout makes a lot of sense to me here. Parker provides great value and would pair well with Kenny Stills and Jarvis Landry.

15. San Francisco 49ers- Marcus Peters, CB- Washington

Despite the retirements of Patrick Willis, Chris Borland, and Justin Smith, I think the Niners will have strong in-house options to replace them due to consistently strong draft picks (e.g. Michael Wilhoite, Shayne Skov, Tank Carradine). I think their most pressing need is at corner, which Marcus Peters would be a solid replacement for the recently departed Chris Culliver.

16. Houston Texans- Malcom Brown, DE- Texas

The Texans are known for their strong defensive line, but could use an upgrade to pair with J.J. Watt at defensive end and an eventual successor for Vince Wilfork.

17. San Diego Chargers- La’El Collins, OT/G- Louisiana State

Chargers are going to need to add bodies on the offensive line. They need to find a starting left guard to fully protect Rivers. Collins could fill that need and is also strong value at this spot.

18. Kansas City Chiefs- Jaelen Strong, WR- Arizona State

Jeremy Maclin won’t solve all of the Chiefs’ pass game problems, and management would be smart to draft a receiver fearly in the draft.

19. Cleveland Browns- D.J. Humphries, OT- Florida

Reports have it that the Browns want to solidify both sides of the line in the draft. Seems like a solid plan, as Flowers could start at right tackle and allow them to move Schwartz inside to guard.

20. Philadelphia Eagles- Arik Armstead, DE- Oregon

Armstead would be great value here, fill a need at D-end, and be another former Duck for Chip Kelly to put on his roster. Seems right to me.

21. Cincinnati Bengals- Ereck Flowers, OT- Miami (FL)

The Bengals could draft a third tackle who could “redshirt” his first year and replace either Smith or Whitworth if/when they depart in free agency next year. Flowers is also solid value here, so the pick would be logical.

22. Pittsburgh Steelers- Kevin Johnson, CB- Wake Forest

It’s surprising that Kevin Colbert would allow his roster to get so thin at cornerback, and we’re at the point where Kevin Johnson almost has to be the pick as he’s the best cover corner available here.

23. Detroit Lions- Randy Gregory, OLB- Nebraska

Yes. I didn’t forget about Gregory. His failed drug test will hurt his stock, and I could see him falling to the bottom of the first round. He has questionable character but massive amounts of upside.

24. Arizona Cardinals- Denzel Perryman, ILB- Miami

Denzel Perryman makes sense here, as the Cardinals seem thin at inside linebacker. With that said, I have no doubt that Steve Keim will make the right pick here, as he’s one of the football’s most prudent general managers.

25. Carolina Panthers- T.J. Clemmings, OT- Pittsburgh

Cam Newton will get destroyed if his offensive line doesn’t improve next year. Clemmings would be a solid addition, and I can’t see the Panthers going in any other direction with this pick.

26. Baltimore Ravens- Dorial Green-Beckham, WR- Missouri

This pick makes so much sense, as DGB has the upside to be a star receiver and would thrive best in a structured system similar to Baltimore’s. He also fills a need for the team, as Torrey Smith left in free agency.

27. Dallas Cowboys- Melvin Gordon, RB- Wisconsin

The Cowboys need to find a suitable replacement for DeMarco Murray if they want to contend for a title next year. Gordon could be just that.

28. Denver Broncos- Jordan Phillips, DT- Oklahoma

The Broncos need to find more down-linemen with their change in defensive schemes, and Phillips is probably best suited as a 3-4 DT at the next level.

29. Indianapolis Colts- Cameron Erving, OG/C- Florida State

Andrew Luck could afford to have top-tier center for the future, which Erving would undoubtedly become if he’s drafted here.

30. Green Bay Packers- Eddie Goldman, DE- Florida State

Eddie Goldman is a perfect fit for Dom Capers’ 3-4 defense, and is certainly a solid-value pick here. Not changing this pick at all, as it makes sense.

31. New Orleans Saints- Eli Harold, OLB- Virginia

Sean Payton needs to find a strong third option at OLB to improve the Saints’ pass rush, which is why Harold would be a solid pick here.

32. New England Patriots- Todd Gurley, RB- Georgia

There is a huge need at running back for the Patriots assuming Ridley doesn’t return next season. Gurley is strong value here and fills that need.

33. Tennessee Titans- Jake Fisher, OT- Oregon

34. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Bud Dupree, OLB- Kentucky

35. Oakland Raiders- Devin Smith, WR- Ohio State

36. Jacksonville Jaguars- Laken Tomlinson, OG- Duke

37. New York Jets- Tevin Coleman, RB- Indiana

38. Washington Redskins- Jalen Collins, CB- Louisiana State

39. Chicago Bears- Carl Davis, DT- Iowa

40. New York Giants- Damarious Randall, S- Arizona State

41. St. Louis Rams- Brett Hundley, QB- UCLA

42. Atlanta Falcons- Owamagbe Odighizuwa, DE- UCLA

43. Cleveland Browns- Devin Funchess, WR- Michigan

44. New Orleans Saints- Maxx Williams, TE- Minnesota

45. Minnesota Vikings- Mario Edwards Jr., DE- Florida State

46. San Francisco 49ers- Eric Kendricks, ILB- UCLA

47. Miami Dolphins- P.J. Williams, CB- Florida State

48. San Diego Chargers- Ameer Abdullah, RB- Nebraska

49. Kansas City Chiefs- Byron Jones, CB- Connecticut

50. Buffalo Bills- Donovan Smith, OT- Penn State

51. Houston Texans- Shaq Thompson, OLB- Washington

52. Philadelphia Eagles- Sammie Coates, WR- Auburn

53. Cincinnati Bengals- Michael Bennett, DT- Ohio State

54. Detroit Lions- Ronald Darby, CB- Florida State

55. Arizona Cardinals- Preston Smith, OLB- Mississippi State

56. Pittsburgh Steelers- Benardrick McKinney, ILB- Mississippi State

57. Carolina Panthers- Nelson Agholor, WR- Southern Cal

58. Baltimore Ravens- Alex Carter, CB- Stanford

59. Denver Broncos- Tre Jackson, OG- Florida State

60. Dallas Cowboys- Quinten Rollins, CB- Miami (OH)

61. Indianapolis Colts- Kwon Alexander, OLB- Louisiana State

62. Green Bay Packers- Paul Dawson, ILB- Texas Christian
