The top pick comes of the 2015 NFL Draft comes down to two quarterbacks, Marcus Mariota and Jameis Winston. Both have been proven to be winners, and have the height/weight and talent to deserve this pick. Jameis is more athletic but really takes a hit when it comes to his off the field antics. The Buccaneers will need to commit a lot of guaranteed money to this player and they need a stand up guy to be the face of their franchise. And they have the infrastructure in place to handle Marcus. The Buccaneers have 2 towering receivers in Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson. Austin Seferian Jenkins also showed flashes of talent last year. This will be a great fit and you should see Marcus put into a great scenario, unlike Blake Bortles got with Jacksonville last year. [collapse]

2: Jameis Winston

The Titans would much rather have Mariota, because they are still having nightmares of Vince Young. And since Jameis doesnt seem much smarter, they may be making a very similar mistake, but if Jameis can just grow up and study film without the stealing and childish activities, then this might be the best pick in the draft. Jameis only lost one game in college and is a proven winner. With a great young talent to build the team around the titans might stop swimming in mediocrity and jump up in this relatively easy division. [collapse]

3: Leonard Williams

DE - USC


Leonard Williams is a monster! He matches up well in a 3-4 or 4-3 system and recorded a pac-12 leading 74 tackles, 13.5 tackles for loss and 8 sacks. But on film he would dominate tackles almost every down. He was constantly double teamed at the line ... [expand]
Leonard Williams is a monster! He matches up well in a 3-4 or 4-3 system and recorded a pac-12 leading 74 tackles, 13.5 tackles for loss and 8 sacks. But on film he would dominate tackles almost every down. He was constantly double teamed at the line with a tight end and tackle, but he even broke through that. If the offense didnt have a running back blocking the quarterback would feel the heat after a few seconds. The Jaguars need upgrades in other areas so it would make sense for them to trade down but teams have typically not passed on talent like Leonards in any recent drafts due to team needs. [collapse]

Randy Gregory is arguably the best speed rusher in this 2015 mock draft. He has set himself apart with this great swim move which we have seen in recent years shake some of the best tackles. He will need to gain some weight because hes often too high in his pass rushing which sets off his balance if his speed is matched. He also let some big rushes get by because he tries to speed rush the outside so often. Randy Gregory can get to the quarterback quickly and this is a big deal. Jack Del Rio loves working with these defensive linemen and if chosen by the Raiders, he will have a perfect coach and system. Think Von Miller in terms of speed rush with a Del Rio coaching him up.

5: Shane Ray

Shane Ray is the last of the top tier pass rushers to luckily fall into Washington's lap. Brian Orakpo is going to be a free agent and will likely try to sign back in texas where he went to school. Shane Ray is going to pair well with Ryan Kerrigan and keep the heat coming off the line for the Redskins. It's still undetermined what they're going to do with RGIII, so they are going to set the table on the other end. Amari Cooper has got to be thought about here too, but with money tied up in Desean Jackson and Santana Moss and Pierre Garcon it'll just be hard to swallow not filling a more obvious hole.

Amari Cooper looked dominant against all the top cornerbacks the SEC had to offer. His height hurts him a little, but Amari's strength is his route running and quickness. He's also extremely difficult to bring down. Since Laquan Treadwell is staying at Ole Miss this year Amari is the clean number one receiver. Geno Smith will really appreciate this gift and hopefully can take the next step in his development. [collapse]

With Landon Collins you are getting a Mark Barron 2.0. He is extremely physical and has great insincts. His strengths are zone coverage, but has been burnt by some of the SEC. Great coaches will exploit this matchup if given the opportunity. If he can work on his speed a little and taking better angles then this Mark Barron might turn more into an Earl Thomas. [collapse]

Dante Fowler lived up to his five star recruiting status coming out of St Petersburg HS. Will Muschamp utilized his strengths perfectly in his 3-4 system where they speed rush him around the edge with an option to cut back if the tackle takes on the five technique. He has the size and speed to fit right into a starting spot for the falcons. Speaking of potential linebackers for the falcons, they must feel a little bit slighted by having the Raiders trade up right before the falcons last year to steal Khalil Mack from right under their nose.

Andrus Peat is the strongest left tackle with the best footwork in the draft. He has a monster frame that is prototypical for first round tackles. He stays low in his stance and edge rushers should pose little threat with his curst to the edges. The Pac-12 this year has great pass rushers and Peat stood tall with all of them. He will be able to solidify the line and allow Beatty to move to the right side, if he even sticks around. [collapse]

After playing on a mediocre Hurricanes offense, Ereck Flowers has decided to enter the 2015 nfl draft. He drops from his top tackle ranking because he had minor knee surgery which teams are often very critical of coming into april. If his hand placement can improve he will turn into a solid rock on this offensive line. Jake Long has been beat a lot this season and will be looking for a new job soon. The Rams are also looking for a quarterback and could package together a trade that would spring them up to get a Jameis Winston, should he fall. [collapse]

The Vikings will be looking for help on their offensive line. Teddy Bridgewater averaged 3.2 seconds of pocket time which was the lowest in the league last year. Scherff has played inside and outside the line so he can fill whichever needs Minnesota has. The Vikings could also address their defense with this pick, especially at cornerback but PJ Williams just isn't a good scheme fit for them as his zone coverage is subpar. [collapse]

Kevin White is very strong and very quick. He has a ridiculous out route that will be uncontested in the NFL. Whoever the quarterback for Cleveland is in the future (probably Hoyer) will love to have this addition. While White isn't known to be a burner, he is great at route running, think Joe Horn. The one concern I would have drafting him is the blocks he throws sometimes are absolutely terrible, he will need to be coached up a lot to not be embarrassed on the next level. [collapse]
