2015 NFL Mock Draft

By: Robert Davis | Updated: 4/30

  1. Tampa Bay - Jameis Winston, QB, Florida St.
    The Bucs settled on Winston months ago. He comes with risks, but his upside is legit. He's a better fit for an offense featuring three 6'5 targets in the passing game.

  2. Tennessee - Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon
    Mariota appears to be in line for the second overall selection, no matter who ends up making the pick. If the Titans can't trade down, he still makes the most sense. You don't pass on a potential franchise QB because you have an unproved sixth rounder on the roster.

  3. Jacksonville - Amari Cooper, WR, Alabama
    An edge rusher(Fowler or Beasley) or the draft's best player(Williams) make more sense, but the Jags want to give Blake Bortles as many weapons as possible.

  4. Oakland - Leonard Williams, DL, USC
    The Raiders may be torn if Williams and Cooper are on the board, but with Cooper gone, it's an easy choice to draft the top overall talent available this year. Williams and last years top pick Khalil Mack are a great duo to build a defense around.

  5. Washington - Dante Fowler, LB, Florida
    Brian Orakpo has been injured in recent years and was allowed to walk this off season. An upgrade opposite Ryan Kerrigan is needed and Fowler is arguably the top edge rusher in the draft.

  6. NY Jets - Andrus Peat, OT, Stanford
    The Jets were very active in free agency, addressing many needs throughout the roster. With this pick, they upgrade the right tackle position with Peat, who has as much upside as any tackle in the draft. He also gives them a potential D'Brickashaw Ferguson replacement on the left side if they decide to move on from him down the road.

  7. Chicago - Kevin White, WR, West Virginia
    Brandon Marshall was shipped out, which leaves Alshon Jeffery as the only proven commodity at WR. The team is heavily invested into Jay Cutler and must get him weapons.

  8. Atlanta - Vic Beasley, DE/LB, Clemson
    Dan Quinn comes from the Seahawks, and will be looking to bring some speed and aggressiveness to the defense. Someone to apply consistent pressure off the edge has been a need for years, and Beasley should eliminate that as a need for quite some time. He is the draft's most explosive pass rusher.

  9. NY Giants - Ereck Flowers, OT, Miami
    Eli Manning has to be protected, so the Giants will definitely be looking to upgrade the unit up front. Flowers is a great RT prospect that could shift to the left tackle spot in the future. His presence also allows them to shift Justin Pugh inside to guard, upgrading another spot on the line.

  10. St.Louis - Brandon Scherff, OT, Iowa
    Jake Long was released after another knee injury, Joseph Barksdale is a free agent, and Rodger Saffold is coming off another injury. Scherff could play four of the five positions up front, giving the Rams a lot of versatility with their line.

  11. Minnesota - DeVante Parker, WR, Louisville
    Teddy Bridgewater is re-united with Parker from their Louisville days, and he quickly emerges as his new go to target.

  12. Cleveland - Danny Shelton, NT, Washington
    The Browns would love for one of the top three wideouts to fall here, but they don't. Instead, they get a relatively safe option and upgrade their run defense, which was pathetic last year.

  13. New Orleans - Bud Dupree, LB, Kentucky
    Adding pass rushers has to be a priority for the Saints this year and they are still searching for the talent to make the full switch to a 34 defense.

  14. Miami - Todd Gurley, RB, Georgia
    The Dolphins are enamored with Gurley and make him the pick here. The presence of Lamar Miller gives them the freedom to bring Gurley along slowly, and gives them a devastating ground game once he's healthy.

  15. San Francisco - Trae Waynes, CB, Michigan St.
    The 9ers could go a few ways here, but landing the drafts top corner at 15 is great value. Free agency hit the 9ers pretty hard in the secondary, and they end up with an upgrade in Waynes.

  16. Houston - Kevin Johnson, CB, Wake Forest
    Today's NFL requires at least three starting caliber corners. Kareem Jackson and Jonathan Joseph are solid, but Johnson may be the best corner on the team in short order.

  17. San Diego - Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin
    The Chargers are still trying to win now, and to do so, they have to work on their ground game. Gordon is a game breaker at the position, and will take a lot of pressure off of Phillip Rivers.

  18. Kansas City - Arik Armstead, DL, Oregon
    Andy Reid has always had an affinity for talented linemen, and he opts for the Oregon big man here. Armstead has tremendous physical tools but is a work in progress on the line. He's the ideal five technique once he refines his game.

  19. Cleveland(Buffalo) - Breshad Perriman, WR, Central Florida
    Perriman has a lot of physical similarities to Josh Gordon coming out. They hope he can have the same type of impact on the field as well.

  20. Philadelphia - Damarious Randall, S, Arizona St.
    Chip Kelly loves players that can make plays in space. Randall has great range and playmaking skills and would be a big boost to the Eagles secondary.

  21. Cincinnati - Cedric Ogbuehi, OT, Texas AM
    The Bengals aren't afraid to draft and stash a player in the first round. Last year's top pick, CB Darqueze Dennard, didn't see much of the field as a rookie despite being pro ready. Both starting tackles are free agents after the 2015 season, so the Bengals opt to get Ogbuehi in their system and prepare him for a big role in 2016.

  22. Pittsburgh - Byron Jones, CB, UConn
    The secondary has been a problem spot for a couple years, and the team finally grabs a corner in the first round. Jones has all the tools to be a star, and brings some versatility as well.

  23. Detroit - Malcolm Brown, DT, Texas
    Much is made of the loss of Ndamukong Suh, and for good reason. But the Lions also lost Nick Fairley, and aren't bringing back CJ Moseley. That's their top three tackles from a year ago. Haloti Ngata is a nice start, but he's on the wrong side of 30 and can't do it alone. Brown brings the size to help in the run game, but can also get into the backfield and disrupt the action.

  24. Arizona - Randy Gregory, LB, Nebraska
    The Cards defense has played well despite not having a feared pass rusher. Gregory is arguably the top pass rusher in the draft that has slid a bit for some character concerns. He could be a steal here and could be a double digit sack man as a rookie if he's focused.

  25. Carolina - DJ Humphries, OT, Florida
    Protecting Cam Newton is plan A, B, and C. They have to get him some protection up front. Humphries has excellent upside due to his tremendous athleticism and feet.

  26. Baltimore - Nelson Agholor, WR, USC
    Wide receiver was a need before Torrey Smith skipped town. Agholor gives the team a versatile weapon that can play in the slot or outside. That will allow him to create mismatches, but also gives them flexibility rounding out their receiving corps with other additions.

  27. Dallas - Shane Ray, DE, Missouri
    Ray is a flat out steal at this point, and the Cowboys still can't believe he made it this far.

  28. Denver - Cameron Erving, C, Florida St.
    Erving is tremendous value here, and a great fit in a zone blocking scheme. He brings the versatility to legitimately play all five offensive line spots, but is best at center.

  29. Indianapolis - Eric Rowe, DB, Utah
    Rowe is a fast rising prospect because of his size and speed combination. His ability to play corner or safety make him standout, and that versatility gives teams a lot of options in the secondary.

  30. Green Bay - Eddie Goldman, DL, Florida St.
    ILB is a definitely option here, but there is some depth at the position in the draft. Goldman gives the team a space eater up front and gives them some depth they've been lacking on the defensive line.

  31. New Orleans(Seattle) Bryce Petty, QB, Baylor
    Word has it, the Saints feel Petty is the best pure passer in the draft. Drew Brees is getting up there in age, so they make sure they have an option in case something happens to Brees. Sitting for a couple years behind Brees isn't the worst thing for Petty, either.

  32. New England - Marcus Peters, CB, Washington
    If the Patriots are up for the gamble, this pick could pay huge dividends. Corner is the top need on the team after Darrelle Revis signed with the Jets and Peters is arguably the top corner in the draft without the questions off the field.
