1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Lupagus) – Marcus Mariota QB, Oregon
Easy choice for the Bucs. They need to start over at the quarterback position and Mariota is a smart athletic kid who most importantly has pin point accuracy.
2. Tennessee Titans (Onebar) – Jameis Winston QB, Florida St.
Mettenberg looked OK, but I think the Titans will pounce on the chance to get a franchise quarterback at pick 2. Winston has his risks off the field but his talent might be too tough to pass on.
3. Jacksonville Jaguars (Lupagus) – Leonard Williams DT/DE, USC
The Jaguars have some pieces in place but could still benefit from a disrutpive player on their front line. Williams can line up inside or out, and can pressure QBs, collapse pockets, and stuff the run. He’s a triple threat
4. Oakland Raiders (Onebar) – Amari Cooper WR, Alabama
The Raiders could go in a handful of directions at pick four. Derek Carr appears to be the real deal and loading him up with weapons should be a top priority in Oakland.
5. Washington (Lupagus) – Randy Gregory DE/OLB, Nebraska
The Redskins are a mess and need quite a bit of help. Gregory is an elite pass rushing prospect who can come in and make an impact in year one. He’s got crazy burst off the ball and once he hits opposing QBs a few times, he’ll have all the hogs in Washington feeling Randy.
6. New York Jets (Onebar) – Ronnie Stanley OT, Notre Dame
If the Jets miss out on the top two quarterbacks look for them to upgrade the offensive line. New York struggled to keep the quarterback on his feet in 2014 and Stanley is the hot name at tackle.
7. Chicago Bears (Lupagus) – Landon Collins S, Alabama
The Bears defense is a mess. And if they choose not to grab a pass rusher here, then they should definitely take Collins. Landon is a phenomenal safety who can cover but really excels in attacking the line of scrimmage and blitzing. He will finally give the Bears a playmaker at the safety position.
8. Atlanta Falcons (Onebar) – Shane Ray LB, Missouri
The Falcons were at the bottom of the league in sacks and have lacked a pass rush for years. Getting a raw pass rushing beast like Ray would be a blessing and help get the Falcons pass rush and pass defense back on track.
9. New York Giants (Lupagus) – Maxx Williams TE, Minnesota
I know the Giants have more pressing needs; their defensive and offensive lines could use a boost. But boy, can you imagine an offense with both Beckham Jr. and Williams? I’m by no means a Giants fan, but that image really gets my juices flowing.
10. St. Louis Rams (Onebar) – Brandon Scherff G/OT, Iowa
The Rams still have a few holes on the offensive line. Jake Long’s future is in doubt and with Robinson moving to tackle he leaves a hole at guard. Scherff is a versatile lineman who could be plugged in at guard as a rookie.
11. Minnesota Vikings (Lupagus) – Devante Parker WR, Louisville
The Vikings were hoping for Scherff but got sniped by the Rams. With question marks speckling the remaining tackle prospects like acne on a tookus, they go a different route. Parker is a talented receiver with size and speed. Oh and he also used to play college ball with a certain QB named Teddy.
12. Cleveland Browns (Onebar) – Kevin White WR, West Virginia
With Josh Gordon likely done in Cleveland the Browns will be forced to take a receiver early in the 2015 NFL Draft. Look for them to get one of the top 3 (Cooper, Parker, White), if they can manage to nab one of those guys it will help ease the pain of the loss of Gordon.
13. New Orleans Saints (Lupagus) – Vic Beasley OLB, Clemson
The Saints defense could use a dynamic pass rusher. Beasley has proven to be just that during his time at Clemson. He should make an impact right away and can help this defense become one step closer to being just as dynamic as the offense.
14. Miami Dolphins (Onebar) – Melvin Gordon RB, Wisconsin
Miami has tried a few different running backs in the past few years. I think it’s time they finally nip it in the bud and take the best back in the entire 2015 Class. Gordon has great size and playmaking ability, he has the chance to take it to the house everytime he touches the ball.
15. San Francisco 49ers (Lupagus) – Trae Waynes CB, Michigan St.
This pick could come down a receive if one of the top 3 slide, a corner, or even a defensive tackle like Danny Shelton. Waynes gives them a top shelf corner prospect to pair with their young safety tandem and suddenly there is a lot of long term optimism surrounding the 9ers secondary.
16. Houston Texans (Onebar) – Ereck Flowers OT, Miami
Texans go with the best player available and add some needed help along the offensive line. The 6’6, 325 lb tackle has been one of the best in the nation and could be a future franchise left tackle in the NFL.
