As a disclaimer, most of these picks will change, likely dramatically, as a result of the Combine, Veteran Free Agency and Pro Days. Enjoy!
Update: Read our NFL Draft scouting reports 2015 for the top prospects.
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jameis Winston - QB - Florida State
TB desperately needs a QB of the future. It's a toss-up at this point between Winston and Marcus Mariota.
- Tennessee Titans: Leonard Williams - DE - Southern Cal
The Titans seem set with keeping Zach Mettenberger on as their starting QB. This would be a great pick for them to solidify the defensive line.
- Jacksonville Jaguars: Randy Gregory - DE - Nebraska
Jacksonville will likely go with the best defensive player available. Right now, that's Gregory.
- Oakland Raiders: Amari Cooper - WR - Alabama
Same as the last mock draft. Oakland needs play makers all over and Cooper gives them arguably the best WR in the draft to pair with quality young QB Derek Carr.
- Washington: Dante Fowler, Jr. - DE/OLB - Florida
Fowler has been rising up draft boards as of late after we've spent more time analyzing his tape. He's a non-stop player who can get after the QB.
- New York Jets: Marcus Mariota - QB - Oregon
I don't see Mariota falling past this pick, whether it's another team trading up for him or the Jets landing him here.
- Chicago Bears: Shane Ray - OLB - Mizzou
Chicago needs to get better all over their defense and Ray is arguably a Top 5 pick who happened to slide.
- Atlanta Falcons: Bud Dupree - DE/OLB - Kentucky
Taking a page out of his Seattle playbook, Dan Quinn starts loading up on pass rushers.
- New York Giants: Brandon Scherff - OT - Iowa
Again, Scherff to the Giants just makes sense. They need OT help immediately and he's the most pro-ready OT in this draft.
- St. Louis Rams: Melvin Gordon - RB - Wisconsin
Realistically, no one knows what St. Louis will do here. At this point, they could go several ways but Gordon helps solidify a suspect running game.
- Minnesota Vikings: Danny Shelton - DT - Washington
Shelton helps beef up the middle of the Minnesota defense, a problem area over recent years.
- Cleveland Browns: Malcolm Brown - DT - Texas
With the depth at WR, the Browns go with Brown to help solidify the interior of their defensive line.
- New Orleans Saints: Vic Beasley - OLB - Clemson
Beasley is a bit smaller than most would like but he wins with speed, which can be emphasized indoors in NO.
- Miami Dolphins: Trae Waynes - CB - Michigan State
Miami is another interesting team to predict. They could go in any number of directions but Waynes makes sense to help shore up an aging secondary.
- San Francisco 49ers: La'el Collins - OL - LSU
There's no guarantee the 49ers OL will stay in tact after free agency. Collins gives them a versatile player and insurance in case someone leaves.
- Houston Texans: Andrus Peat - OT - Stanford
Peat has arguably the highest ceiling for any OT in this draft. He has the potential to be a Pro Bowl OT for years to come.
- San Diego Chargers: Jordan Phillips - NT - Oklahoma
The Chargers need to shore up the middle of their defensive line. Phillips gives them an anchor that demands a double team on basically every play.
- Kansas City Chiefs: DeVante Parker - WR - Louisville
Kansas City needs to revamp their entire WR corps. Parker gives them a great starting point.
- Cleveland Browns (via Buffalo Bills): Kevin White - WR - West Virginia
Cleveland lands one of the Top 3 WRs in this draft to help ease the pain of Josh Gordon's year long absence.
- Philadelphia Eagles: Landon Collins - S - Alabama
The Eagles need help in their secondary and are blessed to have the top S fall to them at 20.
- Cincinnati Bengals: Arik Armstead - DT/DE - Oregon
Armstead is an intriguing prospect. He can step in immediately and help the Bengal defense.
- Pittsburgh Steelers: Eddie Goldman - DT - Florida State
Pittsburgh needs to improve their aging defense and Goldman gives them a solid interior player.
- Detroit Lions: Michael Bennett - DT - Ohio State
It's highly unlikely the Lions will have both Suh and Fairley back next season. Bennett gives the team an insurance policy and fits the penetrating scheme Jim Caldwell has had in the past.
- Arizona Cardinals: Eric Kendricks - ILB - UCLA
Arizona needs a playmaker in their LB corps and Kendricks is the pure definition of it.
- Carolina Panthers: Cameron Erving - OT - Florida State
Cam Newton needs more time. Erving can step in and play immediately.
- Baltimore Ravens: Shaq Thompson - OLB - Washington
The Ravens, as usual, take the best player available in the versatile Thompson.
- Dallas Cowboys: Eli Harold - DE/OLB - Virginia
Dallas needs to get a pass rush and Harold helps solve that problem.
- Denver Broncos: Devin Funchess - WR/TE - Michigan
With Julius Thomas likely gone, Funchess can step in and be a big time weapon for Peyton Manning.
- Indianapolis Colts: Marcus Peters - CB - Washington
The Colts have issues all over their defense. While CB at first appears to be a position of strength, it could very quickly become a weakness with an injury to Vontae Davis or injury prone Greg Toler.
Marcus Peters is far and away the most skilled CB in this draft. He has the prototypical size and skills to excel in Chuck Pagano's defense. Further, he provides an insurance policy for when Greg Toler is either cut, injured or leaves after next season. It's my opinion that Toler should be cut since the team would save $5.5M in cap space and his production does not warrant that price tag.
While this may seem like a strange pick to some, Peters has Top 10 talent in this draft and could realistically be a shutdown CB for years to come. These players are hard to pass on, especially late in the first round.
- Green Bay Packers: Bernardrick McKinney - ILB - Mississippi State
Green Bay needs an ILB to allow Clay Matthews back to his more natural OLB position.
- Seattle Seahawks: Maxx Williams - TE - Minnesota
The Seahawks have needed a TE for several years and should take the top TE in this draft late in the first.
- New England Patriots: Jaelen Strong - WR - Arizona State
Logic says NE should take a WR with this pick. That being said, they'll probably go guard.
- Tennessee: P.J. Williams - CB - Florida State
- Tampa Bay: T.J. Clemmings - OT - Pittsburgh
- Oakland: Nate Orchard - DE - Utah
- Jacksonville: Ereck Flowers - OT - Miami (FL)
- New York Jets: Quinten Rollins - CB - Miami (OH)
- Washington: Cody Prewitt - S - Ole Miss
- Chicago: Kevin Johnson - CB - Wake Forest
- New York Giants: Owamagbe Odighizuwa - OLB - UCLA
- St. Louis: Brent Hundley - QB - UCLA
- Atlanta: Nick O'Leary - TE - Florida State
- Cleveland: Denzel Peryyman - ILB - Miami
- New Orleans: Ifo Ekpre-Olumu - CB - Oregon
- Minnesota: Todd Gurley - RB - Georgia
- San Francisco: Duke Johnson - RB - Miami (FL)
- Miami: Sammie Coates - WR - Auburn
- San Diego: A.J. Cann - OG - South Carolina
- Kansas City: Ty Sambraillo - OT - Colorado State
- Buffalo: Anthony Harris - S - Virginia
- Houston: Dorial Green-Beckham - WR - Oklahoma
- Philadelphia: D'Joun Smith - CB - Florida Atlantic
- Cincinnati: Jalen Collins - CB - LSU
- Detroit: Ameer Abdullah - RB - Nebraska
- Arizona: Jay Ajayi - RB - Boise State
- Pittsburgh: Jeremiah Poutasi - OT - Utah
- Carolina: Paul Dawson - OLB - TCU
- Baltimore: Tevin Coleman - RB - Indiana
- Denver: Haouli Kikaha - OLB - Washington
- Dallas: Xavier Cooper - DT - Washington State
- Indianapolis Colts: Carl Davis - NT - Iowa
The interior of the Colts defensive line is one of the weaker positions on the team. As much as I loved the Josh Chapman pick in 2012, he just hasn't lived up to expectations. The team doesn't have a realistic space eating NT, which is what makes this defense excel.
Davis is an impressive athlete. He has excellent size, strength and initial quickness to excel in the NFL. Davis has prototypical size for the NT position in the Colts defense. He has the brute strength to hold up blockers and engage double teams, allowing the ILBs to flow to the ball more easily. However, it's his initial quickness that may be one of his best attributes as he's able to get off the snap and disrupt the offense. Davis is also versatile enough to move outside to the DE position when necessary, which would allow the team to cut Ricky Jean-Francois and save another $4.875M of cap space this season.
It wouldn't surprise me to see Grigson go after a top OG, OLB or S prospect here either. OG will likely have the best talent available at this position. OLB may be a bit of a reach and the team could get similar style players in Round 3. S may also be a reach but after the top 5-7 safety prospects, the drop off seems significant so grabbing one here would also make sense.
