2015 NFL Mock Draft 5.0 (7 Rounds)



2015 NFL Mock Draft 5.0: 

7 Rounds

Updated 3/6/15





ROUND 1


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

Tampa Bay can land their franchise QB in the first round then add to the O-Line and D-Line in rounds 2 and 3.  Winston seems to be locked in at #1 right now but Mariota has to be in the discussion.


2. Tennessee Titans: Leonard Williams DE/DT, USC 

If the Titans feel they are set with Zach Mettenberger at QB they can take the top rated 5 technique or outside linebacker to build up the defense.  Maybe this is an epic bluff and they actually love Mariota, similar to the Jags and Bortles last year.


3. Jacksonville Jaguars: Dante Fowler, Jr. DE/OLB, Florida

A defensive lineman or LEO linebacker to attack the QB makes the most sense with the 3rd overall pick.  O-Line can be addressed after the first round.  The Jags are in a great position to demand a king’s ransom for a team trying to trade up for Mariota.


4. Oakland Raiders: Kevin White WR, West Virginia

Having a franchise QB with Carr in place makes life a lot easier.  The #1 WR (Cooper or White) on their board or a D-Lineman to pair with stud LB Khalil Mack makes perfect sense.  Another trade down candidate for a team desperate for a QB.


5. Washington Redskins: Randy Gregory DE/OLB, Nebraska

A bookend right tackle to pair with LT Williams, an outside linebacker/defensive tackle or the top safety in the draft all work with the 5th pick.  CB is a need but not with the 5th pick.


6. New York Jets: Marcus Mariota QB, Oregon 

The Jets may have one of the two franchise QB’s fall to them at 6, run don’t walk that card up to the podium if that happens.  The other options would be the top rated WR or a pass rushing outside linebacker. CB is a huge need but not at #6.


7. Chicago Bears: Danny Shelton NT/DT, Washington

The Bears need to add talent to the defense and players that fit their new 3-4 scheme; DE, DT, OLB, another corner and a safety.


8. Atlanta Falcons: Vic Beasley DE/OLB, Clemson

Addressing the pass rush has to be the #1 priority in round 1.  Another O-Lineman would make sense here but rounds 2-4 seems more likely.  I’ve seen some mocks with a WR here; I just don’t think it will happen.


9. New York Giants: Shane Ray DE/OLB, Missouri

The Giants need one more O-Lineman to solidify the line; they should also look at the top rated pass rusher even with the return of JPP.  Safety could be a big need depending on Free Agency and a future middle linebacker would look good in round 2/3.  The GMen always take the top rated player on their board and that could actually be a WR here in round one with either Amari Cooper or Kevin White.  If it is O-Line I would bet on La’el Collins over Scherff or Peat.  I still like DE/OLB Bud Dupree here if the top four Edge rushers fly off the board.


10. St. Louis Rams: La’el Collins OT/OG, LSU

Maybe one of the two QB’s fall to 10, if not, adding to the O-Line or a WR/CB makes sense.  The Rams really have a good roster but desperately need a QB to compete.


11. Minnesota Vikings: Amari Cooper WR, Alabama

O-Line may be the biggest need with the regression of LT Matt Kalil but the idea of reuniting Bridgewater with college teammate WR DeVante Parker or picking High School teammate Amari Cooper may be too good to pass up.  CB seems to be the other option.


12. Cleveland Browns: DeVante Parker WR, Louisville

The Browns need a #1 WR and then another WR and possibly TE depending on Free Agency.  Interior D-Line and linebackers should be addressed also, along with a Right Tackle.  They can’t draft DGB so they have to hope one of the top 3 WR’s falls to 12 or they may have to reach at 19.


13. New Orleans Saints: Trae Waynes CB, Michigan State

Look for a pass rushing OLB, CB/S and O-Line. Building the defense should be the priority in the draft.


14. Miami Dolphins: Shaq Thompson LB/S, Washington

LB, D-Line/O-Line, another corner and possibly a deep threat WR depending on Mike Wallace.


15. San Francisco 49ers: Dorial Green-Beckham WR, Oklahoma 

WR’s, CB’s along with youth on both the D-Line and O-Line.


16. Houston Texans: Marcus Peters CB, Washington

Corner, Inside Linebacker, O-Line and WR are all need areas.  A Franchise QB is needed but after the top two guys come off the board, I don’t see one in this year’s draft.


17. San Diego Chargers: Andrus Peat OT, Stanford

Continue building up the O-Line, D-Line and Linebacker’s.  Depending on free agency, RB and CB’s could be needed.


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

A #1 WR has to be the addressed due to the fact that the Chiefs had no TD’s from their current WR’s.  O-Line and the secondary should also be addressed.


19. Cleveland Browns (via Buffalo): Malcom Brown NT/DT, Texas

Their second first round pick (From the Bills) will depend on what they do at pick #12, I expect a WR with one of these picks even if they have to reach here.


20. Philadelphia Eagles: Jalen Collins CB, LSU

Maybe they make a big move and trade up for QB Marcus Mariota, if not; Philly will look to bolster the secondary with CB’s and a Safety.  Later on RB/WR/OLB/OL can be addressed.


21. Cincinnati Bengals: Alvin “Bud” Dupree DE/OLB, Kentucky

A pass rushing DE/LB, another young CB and O-Line look to be the main need areas.  An impact DT to pair with Geno Atkins is in play here too.


22. Pittsburgh Steelers: Landon Collins SS, Alabama 

The Steelers really need to attack the secondary with several CB’s and a Safety.  LB should also be addressed.


23. Detroit Lions: Eddie Goldman DT/DE, Florida State

If either of the DT’s leave via Free Agency that would be the #1 need.  Another CB/WR/RB and interior O-Line would fit as well.


24. Arizona Cardinals: Todd Gurley RB, Georgia

Arizona could be in position to draft the top RB prospect.  OLB and ILB’s are the areas it sounds like the Cards will focus on.


25. Carolina Panthers: Brandon Scherff OT/OG, Iowa

This is the year to fix the O-Line; at least two picks are needed to bolster the line.  A #2 WR, a DE and one more CB are also needs.


26. Baltimore Ravens: Melvin Gordon RB, Wisconsin

CB’s and WR’s are the top needs but a first round RB makes sense if Justin Forsett leaves via Free Agency. 


27. Dallas Cowboys: Arik Armstead DE/DT, Oregon

Another pass rushing DE, DT and CB’s look to be the top need areas.  If a top RB is sitting here, it could present the best value.


28. Denver Broncos: Jordan Phillips DT, Oklahoma

A lot will depend on Free Agency (TE/WR/DT); if everyone comes back they can add to the O-Line, DT and Inside Linebacker.


29. Indianapolis Colts: Ereck Flowers OT, Miami

O-Line will always be important when you have the best young QB in the game.  The Colts also need to address their run defense with a DE/DT/LB.  It sounds like they might be picking a RB early to take pressure off the passing game.


30. Green Bay Packers: Benardick McKinley ILB, Mississippi State

Inside linebacker and Interior D-Line look like the top needs.  Free Agency will dictate whether the O-Line needs to be addressed.


31. Seattle Seahawks: Breshad Perriman WR, UCF

A difference maker at WR or TE would look good in the first round.  Interior D-Line and CB’s look to be in play.  RB Todd Gurley would be an absolute steal here.


32. New England Patriots: Devin Funchess WR/TE, Michigan

A true #1 WR would be perfect or they could land the #1 TE prospect to pair with Gronk.  O-Line and Interior D-Line are needs and even with all the RB’s on the roster a top RB at the end of round 1 would open the field up for Brady.  With that said, they will probably trade down and we all know it.

*Updated 2/24/15

Tampa Bay can land their franchise QB in the first round then add to the O-Line and find a pass rusher in rounds 2 and 3.

2015 NFL Mock Draft (4 Rounds) 3.0




2015 NFL Mock Draft : 4 Rounds

*Updated 2/18/15




ROUND 1



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

Tampa Bay can land their franchise QB in the first round then add to the O-Line and find a pass rusher in rounds 2 and 3.


2. Tennessee Titans: Leonard Williams DE/DT, USC 

If the Titans feel they are set with Zach Mettenberger at QB they can take the top rated 5 technique or outside linebacker to build up the defense.


3. Jacksonville Jaguars: Randy Gregory DE/OLB, Nebraska 

A defensive lineman or LEO linebacker to attack the QB makes the most sense with the 3rd overall pick.  O-Line can be addressed after the first round.


4. Oakland Raiders: Amari Cooper WR, Alabama 

Having a franchise QB with Carr in place makes life a lot easier.  The #1 WR on their board or a D-Lineman to pair with stud LB Mack makes perfect sense.


5. Washington Redskins:
Brandon Scherff OT/OG, Iowa

A bookend right tackle to pair with LT Williams, an outside linebacker/defensive tackle or the top safety in the draft all work with the 5th pick.  CB is a big need but not with the 5th pick.


6. New York Jets: Marcus Mariota QB, Oregon 

The Jets may have one of the two franchise QB’s fall to them at 6, run don’t walk that card up to the podium if that happens.  The other options would be the top rated WR or a pass rushing outside linebacker. CB is a huge need but not at #6.


7. Chicago Bears: Danny Shelton NT/DT, Washington

The Bears need to add talent to the defense and players that fit their new 3-4 scheme; DE, DT, OLB, another corner and a safety.


8. Atlanta Falcons: Shane Ray DE/OLB, Missouri

Addressing the pass rush has to be the #1 priority in round 1.  Another O-Lineman would make sense here but round two seems more likely.  I’ve seen some mocks with a WR here; I just don’t think it will happen.


9. New York Giants: Dante Fowler, Jr. DE/OLB, Florida

The Giants need one more O-Lineman to solidify the line, if JPP leaves they should look at the top rated DE.  Safety could be a big need depending on Free Agency and a future middle linebacker would look good in round 2.  The GMen always take the top rated player on their board and that could actually be a WR here in round one.


10. St. Louis Rams: Ereck Flowers OT, Miami

Maybe one of the two QB’s fall to 10, if not, adding to the O-Line makes sense.  The Rams really have a good roster but desperately need a QB to compete.


11. Minnesota Vikings: DeVante Parker WR, Louisville 

O-Line may be the biggest need with the regression of LT Matt Kalil but the idea of reuniting Bridgewater with WR DeVante Parker may be too good to pass up.


12. Cleveland Browns: Kevin White WR, West Virginia 

The Browns need a #1 WR and then another WR and possibly TE depending on Free Agency.  Interior D-Line and linebackers should be addressed also.  A right tackle should be addressed also.


13. New Orleans Saints: Alvin “Bud” Dupree DE/OLB, Kentucky

Look for a pass rushing OLB, CB/S and O-Line. Building the defense should be the priority in the draft.


14. Miami Dolphins: Shaq Thompson OLB/S, Washington

LB, D-Line, another corner and possibly a deep threat WR depending on Mike Wallace.


15. San Francisco 49ers: Dorial Green-Beckham WR, Oklahoma 

WR’s, CB’s along with youth on both the D-Line and O-Line.


16. Houston Texans: Trae Waynes CB, Michigan State

Corner, Inside Linebacker, O-Line and WR are all need areas.  A Franchise QB is needed but that may have to come through Free Agency.


17. San Diego Chargers: La’el Collins OT/OG, LSU

Continue building the O-Line, D-Line and Linebacker.  Depending on free agency, RB and CB’s could be needed.


18. Kansas City Chiefs: Devin Funchess WR/TE, Michigan 

A #1 WR has to be the addressed due to the fact that the Chiefs had no TD’s from their current WR’s.  O-Line and the secondary should also be addressed.


19. Cleveland Browns (via Buffalo): Eddie Goldman DT/DE, Florida State

Their second first round pick (From the Bills) will depend on what they do at pick #12.


20. Philadelphia Eagles: Marcus Peters CB, Washington

Maybe they make a big move and trade up for QB Marcus Mariota, if not; Philly will look to bolster the secondary with CB’s and a Safety.  Later on ILB/OLB can be addressed.


21. Cincinnati Bengals: Arik Armstead DE/DT, Oregon

A pass rushing DE/LB, another young CB and O-Line look to be the main need areas.  An impact DT to pair with Geno Atkins is in play here too.


22. Pittsburgh Steelers: Landon Collins SS, Alabama 

The Steelers really need to attack the secondary with several CB’s and a Safety.  LB should also be addressed.


23. Detroit Lions: Malcom Brown DT, Texas

If either of the DT’s leave via Free Agency that would be the #1 need.  Another CB and interior O-Line would fit as well.


24. Arizona Cardinals: Todd Gurley RB, Georgia

Arizona could be in position to draft the top RB prospect.  DE and LB’s are need areas as well.


25. Carolina Panthers: 
Andrus Peat OT, Stanford

This is the year to fix the O-Line; at least two picks are needed to bolster the line.  A #2 WR, a DE and one more CB are also needs.


26. Baltimore Ravens: Melvin Gordon RB, Wisconsin

CB’s and WR’s are the top needs but a first round RB makes sense if Justin Forsett leaves via Free Agency. 


27. Dallas Cowboys: Vic Beasley DE/OLB, Clemson

Another pass rushing DE, DT and CB’s look to be the top need areas.  If a top RB is sitting here, it could present the best value.


28. Denver Broncos: Benardick McKinley ILB, Mississippi State

A lot will depend on Free Agency (TE/WR/DT); if everyone comes back they can add to the O-Line, DT and Inside Linebacker.


29. Indianapolis Colts: T.J. Clemmings OT, Pittsburgh

O-Line will always be important when you have the best young QB in the game.  The Colts also need to address their run defense with a DE/DT and Inside Linebackers.


30. Green Bay Packers: Jordan Phillips DT, Oklahoma

Inside linebacker and Interior D-Line look like the top needs.  Free Agency will dictate whether the O-Line needs to be addressed.


31. Seattle Seahawks: Maxx Williams TE, Minnesota

A difference maker at WR or TE would look good in the first round.  Interior D-Line is the other big need area.


32. New England Patriots: Jaelen Strong WR, Arizona State

A true #1 WR would be perfect or they could land the #1 TE prospect to pair with Gronk.  Interior D-Line is a need and even with all the RB’s on the roster a top RB at the end of round 1 would open the field up for Brady.
