Don’t like your teams pick? Comment Below
1. Tampa Bay (Onebar) – Jameis Winston QB, Florida St.
At this stage of the game it is hard to go anywhere else other than Winston for the Bucs. Quarterback is an obvious need and they will have their choice, as of now it looks like Tampa gives the edge to Winston and it is hard to argue with them.
2. Tennessee (Lupagus) – Leonard Williams DT/DE, USC
Personally I’m on the Titans going qb train here, but it really sounds like they will roll with big Leo. It makes sense as he can apply pressure from the middle and outside if needed.
3. Jacksonville (Onebar) – Dante Folwer DE, Florida
Jacksonville is in desperate need of an outside pass rush. Fowler has watched his stock skyrocket to the top of many teams boards. I think this pick comes down to Williams/Fowler, who ever is left on the board.
4. Oakland (Lupagus) – Amari Cooper WR, Alabama
This is going to be a receiver one way or the other. Kevin White is the hot name after the Combine and could very well end up here. But Cooper is a special talent with impressive game tape. The Raiders likely can’t go wrong with either player but if it’s my call, I go Cooper here hands down.
5. Washington (Onebar) – Randy Gregory LB/DE, Nebraska
Gregory has slipped post combine on a few draft boards but is still one of my top propsects in the entire draft. His length and athleticism makes him one of the most dangerous pass rushers in 2015.
6. New York Jets (Lupagus) – Marcus Mariota QB, Oregon
The Jets have to go with Mariota if he falls to them here. They currently have Geno Smith and Ryan Fitzpatrick locked in to battle for the starting QB job and that is frankly disgusting. That isn’t good. Mariota is an athletic, smart, and accurate QB who can be brought along slowly and unleased by midseason or in 2016.
7. Chicago (Onebar) – Kevin White WR, West Virginia
Trading away Brandon Marshall leaves a good sized hole opposite Alshon Jeffery. White’s speed could be a dangerous weapon in the NFC North and he would have a chance to put up some big numbers as a rookie.
8. Atlanta (Lupagus) – Shane Ray DE, Mizzou
The Falcons brought in some pass rush help in free agency with the signings of Adrian Clayborn, Brooks Reed, and O’Brien Schofield. Adding a young stud like Ray to that mix would be icing on the cake. Ray can be dominating at times with his powerful array of pass rushing moves, and putting him into a rotation with Clayborn and Schofield could increase the Falcons sack output exponentially.
9. New York Giants (Onebar) – Vic Beasley LB, Clemson
Giants need upgrades at outside linebacker and Beasley is one of the B.P.A. making this a perfect match. The Clemson pass rusher would add a needed pass rush for the G-Men and could have the same impact we watched from Von Miller as a rookie.
10. St. Louis (Lupagus) – Brandon Scherff G/T, Iowa
With the top two WRs off the board and both QBs gone, the Rams decide to be unsexy and beef up their offensive line. With Jake Long getting the boot, and Greg Robinson sliding over to left tackle the Rams have a gaping hole on the right side. With the selection of Scherff the Rams now have options. They can either move Rodger Saffold over to tackle and let Scherff play guard, or just put Scherff at right tackle. Either way, this line gets solidified.
11. Minnesota (Onebar) – Trae Waynes CB, Michigan St.
If this how the cards were to fall I think Waynes would be a no-brainer, pairing Waynes up with Xavier Rhodes and keeping Munnerlyn as the 3rd corner would give the Vikings one of the best trio of corners in the NFC North.
12. Cleveland (Lupagus) – Danny Shelton DT, Washington
The Browns did sign Randy Starks in free agency but they can kick him over to end and let this big bottomed beast anchor the d-line. Shelton has been compared to Halot Ngata and if he ends up half as good as him, then this pick is more than worth it.
13. New Orleans (Onebar) – DeVante Parker WR, Louisville
The Saints traded away both Jimmy Graham and Kenny Stills leaving some good sized holes on offense. Adding Parker with last years 1st round pick Cooks would be a step in the right direction to rebuilding the Saints offense.
14. Miami (Lupagus) – Landon Collins S, Alabama
This pick will depend heavily on if the Dolphins believe Reshad Jones can move over to free safety. Collins is an aggressive safety who can attack the line of scrimmage. He’s a top flight blitzer and should be able to make some big time plays for this defense.
15. San Francisco (Onebar) – Bud Dupree LB, Kentucky
The 49ers have had pretty much the worst offseason I can ever remember. With a bare cupboard they could go in any direction. My guess is they go with the best player on their board, Dupree is getting top 10 consideration as of late and could be a steal at 15 for San Fran.
16. Houston (Lupagus) – La’Ell Collins OT, LSU
The Texans have a hole on the right side of their offensive line and will look to fill it here. Collins is a stout, powerful run blocker who also is nimble enough on his heels to hold his own in pass protection.
