One Round 2015 NFL Mock Draft – Adam

With the NFL Combine beginning to wrap up, players for the most part have cemented their draft stocks. At this point, we are going to be starting posting more in depth mock drafts and pushing out to multiple rounds some time next week. Our scouting reports will be coming out with more frequency as well. Check out our mock draft database for other mock draft’s we have published. I am going to be putting out my final one round mock draft today and then at some point next week I will expand to two rounds. Also, be sure to check out each team’s positional needs on our Team Needs page. Follow us after the jump to check out my updated mock draft. Remember that for prospects who we have written scouting reports for, we have linked their names to their scouting reports. Be sure to check them out and let us know what you think about this mock draft or about our scouting reports by leaving a comment

  1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Jameis Winston, QB, Florida State – Winston’s combine performance cemented himself as the number one pick in the draft
  2. Tennessee Titans – Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon – While the Titans claim that they will not be drafting a quarterback, I just can’t see them passing up the opportunity on landing a franchise quarterback like Mariota.
  3. Jacksonville Jaguars – Leonard Williams, DT, USC – Williams came into the Combine as the top rated defensive linemen and he showed why at the Combine. The Jaguars need to improve their pass rush and Williams will do that
  4. Oakland Raiders – Randy Gregory, DE/OLB, Nebraska – The Raiders need another outside linebacker to pair with rookie phenom Khalil Mack and Gregory is the ideal candidate. His athleticism and pass rushing ability would give the Raiders a pair of pass rushers that could scare opposing quarterbacks
  5. Washington Redskins – Andrus Peat, OT, Stanford – If the Redskins want RGIII to succeed they must protect him better. Peat is a prototypical left tackle and could start from day one.
  6. New York Jets – Amari Cooper, WR, Alabama – The Jets don’t have a huge need at wideout but Cooper is the best player on the board and could give whoever their quarterback is another weapon to throw to
  7. Chicago Bears – Dante Fowler, OLB, Florida – The Bears are moving to a 3-4 scheme and must add a couple of pieces to do that. One need they have is to add a pass rushing outside linebacker and Fowler will give them exactly that
  8. Atlanta Falcons – Shane Ray, OLB, Missouri – The Falcons had a dreadful pass rush last year and need to improve it to become competitive again. Adding a talented, athletic player like Ray would be a good first step towards improving their woeful defense
  9. New York Giants – Danny Shelton, DT, Washington – The Giants defense has fallen off the past few years and if they want to regain their Super Bowl form, they must improve their defensive line. Shelton would give them a massive, space-eating defensive tackle who requires double teams and can collapse the pocket as well
  10. St. Louis Rams – Brett Hundley, QB, UCLA – I now believe that Hundley will be a top 15 pick and with Sam Bradford seeking a trade, the Rams could be looking to add a talented quarterback with upside like Hundley
  11. Minnesota Vikings – Kevin White, WR, West Virginia – White is an incredibly talented wide receiver who can do it all and has a great frame. He will come in and start from day one
  12. Cleveland Browns – DeVante Parker, WR, Louisville – The Browns would love to land Brett Hundley here but with him off the board, they decide to add some talent to their wide receiver corps. Parker is a big bodied wide out who can do it all and would be an improvement over every receiver on the Browns roster
  13. New Orleans Saints – Alvin Dupree, OLB/DE, Kentucky – Dupree is a big, physical linebacker who would fit well in the Saints 3-4 front. He can play both the run and the pass and would have a good shot at starting from day one
  14. Miami Dolphins – Trae Waynes, CB, Michigan State – The Dolphins need to improve their cornerback position and they land arguably the top corner in the draft here at 14. He could come in and start across from Brent Grimes right away most likely
  15. San Francisco 49ers – Landon Collins, S, Alabama – The 49ers have a decent but not great secondary and adding a talented in the box safety like Collins would instantly upgrade a once dominant defense
  16. Houston Texans – Ereck Flowers, OT, Miami – The Texans have a few holes on the offensive line and adding a talent like Flowers could alleviate those problems down the line. While Flowers is not ready to play right away, he could become a dominant left tackle within a couple of years
  17. San Diego Chargers – Todd Gurley, RB, Georgia – The Chargers have not had a stable running back in about five years and adding a talent like Gurley could give them a huge improvement to their offense once he is healthy
  18. Kansas City Chiefs – Dorial Green-Beckham, WR, Oklahoma – The Chiefs could use a supreme talent at wide receiver like Green-Beckham is. While his issues have been well documented, their is no question that he has the potential to be a dominant number one wide receiver in the NFL if he can keep his head on straight
  19. Cleveland Browns – T.J. Clemmings, OT, Pittsburgh – The Browns need to improve their offense to be competitive and after adding a talented wide receiver at #12, they get another improvement here by finding their starting right tackle of the future, a position that has been a major weakness for the Browns the past few years
  20. Philadelphia Eagles – Jalen Collins, CB, LSU – The Eagles had possibly the worst secondary in the NFL last year and adding a long, talented corner like Collins would be a good first step towards improving that
  21. Cincinnati Bengals – Eddie Goldman, DE/DT, Florida State – The Bengals were absolutely dreadful against the run last year and adding a huge space eater like Goldman would be a big help for their defense
  22. Pittsburgh Steelers – Vic Beasley, OLB, Clemson – Beasley is an incredibly explosive pass rusher who could play situationally for the Steelers as he gains strength and learns how to be an every down linebacker. Until then though, he could provide an elite pass rusher similar to the role Von Miller or Jason Pierre-Paul played early on in their careers.
  23. Detroit Lions – Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin – There is a chance the Lions lose both Reggie Bush and Joique Bell this offseason and if that happens, they would be lucky to land a talented, all-purpose back like Gordon at 23 overall
  24. Arizona Cardinals – Denzel Perryman, ILB, Miami – The Cardinals did not get very much production from either inside linebacker position last year and adding an elite prospect like Perryman could provide them a huge boost to their already talented defense
  25. Carolina Panthers – La’El Collins, OT, LSU – If the Panthers want Cam Newton to survive more than a couple more seasons, they must do a better job protecting him. Collins is coming off a strong Combine where he showed that he can be a good left tackle in the NFL and he could come in and help the Panthers right away
  26. Baltimore Ravens – Kevin Johnson, CB, Wake Forest – The Ravens found some upgrades at safety during the season last year but that does not change the fact that they desperately need to upgrade their talent at corner. Johnson is a good man corner who fits in the Ravens scheme
  27. Dallas Cowboys – Mario Edwards, DE/DT, Florida State – The Cowboys defense made big strides last year but still have a ways to go. They need to get a more consistent presence on the defensive line and Edwards could become a great 5 technique defensive end that eats up multiple blockers
  28. Denver Broncos – Jaelen Strong, WR, Arizona State – I believe that the Broncos will opt to resign Julius Thomas and let DeMaryius Thomas walk and therefore, they will need to add a wide receiver. Strong is a big bodied wide receiver who is a great athlete and if he can improve his technique, he could become a dominant number one wide receiver
  29. Indianapolis Colts – Michael Bennett, DT, Ohio State – The Colts must get more physical on the defensive side of the football if they are going to remain a consistent Super Bowl contender. Bennett is a big, athletic defensive tackle who could become a force down the road.
  30. Green Bay Packers – Malcolm Brown, DT/DE, Texas – Like the Colts, the Packers must also improve their physicality on the defensive side of the football and improve against the run and adding a prospect like Brown would be a good first step for that
  31. Seattle Seahawks – Marcus Peters, CB, Washington – The Seahawks are likely to lose Byron Maxwell to free agency and they have showed that they can turn players who had problems with their college coaches into studs. Peters is a great fit in the Seahawks system and could slide into a starting role
  32. New England Patriots – Sammie Coates, WR, Auburn – Coates is a very talented wide receiver with high upside and he could come in and help the Patriots offense right away
