NFL 2015 Mock Draft Round 1
Selections 17-32

201 NFL Mock Draft Pre-Season Revision 1
July 3, 2014


17 New England
Sammie Coates
    Auburn
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     -1
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
201
Alternate Pick #1
Devin Funchess
Alternate Pick #2
Carl Davis
The Patriots' offense is ranked 30th in the league in passing, and their outside receivers, Aaron Dobson, Brandon LaFell, and Kenbrell Thompkins, have a combined 17 receptions for 231 yards and one touchdown. The days of Randy Moss' big-play ability are far in the rear-view mirror. Sammie Coates is rumored to run a sub-4.4 forty, coming in at just under 6'2, with a sturdy frame for the position. He may be a little raw with his route running and occasionally loses his focus causing drops, but his upside is through the roof. He averaged 21.5 yards per catch last season, good for third in the nation, as well as 54.1 yards per touchdown catch. - Austin Smith
18 NY Giants
Devin Funchess
    Michigan
    TE
    Reach/Value:     -3
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
235
Alternate Pick #1
Todd Gurley
Alternate Pick #2
Shilique Calhoun
The Giants' three biggest needs were TE, OL, and LB. After last weeks game, TE might need to be crossed off the list. Donnell's performance promoted former scout Daniel Jeremiah to tweet: "Studying Giants tape today. Larry Donnell isn't a fluke...He's a star." Time will tell if Donnell is for real and if Beckham Jr. is a playmaker because if they are not, the Giants will add a receiving option.
19 Kansas City
Trae Waynes
    Michigan St
    CB
    Reach/Value:     -5
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
185
Alternate Pick #1
Ronald Darby
Alternate Pick #2
Marcus Peters
When you are in a division with Peyton Manning and Phillip Rivers, you can never have enough good Cornerbacks. Waynes is a top press man scheme prospect. He has the size (6' 1", long arms), speed and coverage ability to go against elite receivers. Waynes is still learning. Right now, he is getting by with instinct and taking chances. With some increased mental discipline, Waynes is a top prospect.
20 Green Bay
Denzel Perryman
    Miami (FL)
    ILB
    Reach/Value:     -15
Height:
6'0"
Weight:
240
Alternate Pick #1
A.J. Johnson
Alternate Pick #2
Ellis McCarthy
The Packers have added starters at every position group on the defense in the last two years except for one - Inside Linebacker. After giving up over 700 yds rushing in only four games, it's clearer than ever the Packers MUST address that position. Though a bit undersized, Perryman figures as a three-down player in the NFL, and would bring much-needed athleticism to the position for the Packers.
21 Indianapolis
Shawn Oakman
    Baylor
    OLB34
    Reach/Value:     -6
Height:
6'8"
Weight:
285
Alternate Pick #1
Ronald Darby
Alternate Pick #2
Cameron Erving
The Colts will have Robert Mathis back for one more season, following his 4-game suspension and ultimate season-ending achilles injury. But make no mistake - Indy desperately needs edge rushers that can get to the QB. Other than Mathis, there isn't anyone making that push. Enter Shawn Oakman of Baylor, who, at 6'8", 240, could be the Indy version of J.J. Watt. In theory. I see him batting down passes, lining up all over the defensive front, and otherwise creating all sorts of problems for NFL clubs.
22 San Francisco
Ronald Darby
    Florida St
    CB
    Reach/Value:     -3
Height:
5'11"
Weight:
188
Alternate Pick #1
Carl Davis
Alternate Pick #2
Marcus Peters
We had doubts about the Niners secondary coming into the 2014 season, but Perrish Cox has been playing well - he's ranked #2 at the position by ProFootballFocus.com through 4 games. The problem is that Cox, Chris Cook, and Chris Culliver are all Free Agents after this season. That still leaves Jimmie Ward and Tramaine Brock, so by no means are the Niners locked into CB in the 2015 draft. Offensive Line is another potential target at this point. In additional to poor play at certain positions, Mike Iupati will be an FA.
23 Houston
Kevin Hogan
    Stanford
    QB
    Reach/Value:     +6
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
228
Alternate Pick #1
Connor Cook
Alternate Pick #2
Marcus Peters
The Texans are just getting by (if 3-1 can be defined as "getting by") with Fitzpatrick calling signals, but the schedule will increase in difficulty starting this week. If the road gets rocky, O'Brien may want to see what he has in Mallet and/or Savage; nevertheless, a prototype QB from Stanford may be hard to pass up if he is available at #23. Houston deserves an offense that the defense can be proud of!
24 Philadelphia
Marcus Peters
    Washington
    CB
    Reach/Value:     -7
Height:
5'11"
Weight:
193
Alternate Pick #1
Eric Striker
Alternate Pick #2
Wayne Lyons
Maturity and discipline issues aside, Peters could be what a poor Eagles' D needs. Though CB Boykin is their best DB, HC Kelly and DC Davis refuse to play him anywhere but vs the slot WR or as the nickel because of his stature. Unfortunately, starters Fletcher and Williams are bad (49th and 93rd in Pro Football Focus's CB rankings in 2014). Peters is similar in size to Fletcher but possesses superior ball skills, posting 11 INTs in 30 collegiate games.



25 Dallas
Shilique Calhoun
    Michigan St
    DE43
    Reach/Value:     +6
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
250
Alternate Pick #1
Carl Davis
Alternate Pick #2
Mario Edwards Jr
DC Rod Marinelli is performing magic with a number of guys named "Fred" on the Cowboy DL. Yes, I realize that Anthony Spencer is coming back from injury, but "Doomsday Defense" has only 5 sacks in the first 4 games and only 2.5 of those are by the DL! Calhoun combines speed, quickness, and strength in a classic 4-3 DE frame and has been the focus of opposing offenses early in 2014 after a standout 2013 season in which he recorded 7.5 sacks, 37 tackles with 14 being for losses.
26 Detroit
Wayne Lyons
    Stanford
    CB
    Reach/Value:     -11
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
196
Alternate Pick #1
Mario Edwards Jr
Alternate Pick #2
A.J. Cann
Dejon Gomes, Bill Bentley, Nate Ness, Nevin Lawson, and James Ihedigbo were the DBs who were injured during the first four games this season. The secondary was perilously thin to begin with, but Defensive Coordinator Tyrel Austin's creative schemes and coverage rotations have somehow held this unit together.Will 2015 be the year that the Lions finally draft a CB in RD-1? ~Mike Sudds, Lions Analyst
27 Baltimore
Carl Davis
    Iowa
    DE43
    Reach/Value:     +5
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
315
Alternate Pick #1
Todd Gurley
Alternate Pick #2
Ereck Flowers
A three-game win streak has produced plenty of optimism in Baltimore following another productive offseason from Ozzie Newsome. Still, the team needs to address a pass D that currently ranks among the NFL's worst as well as a potential replacement for its aging new #1 WR. Despite those needs, don't be surprised to see the savvy GM's eyes lock in on a talent like the powerful Carl Davis to upgrade the DL.
28 Denver
Todd Gurley
    Georgia
    RBF
    Reach/Value:     +14
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
232
Alternate Pick #1
Melvin Gordon
Alternate Pick #2
A.J. Cann
The Broncos are ranked 27th in rushing, and Montee Ball ranks 30th in yards per carry (3.4) among players with at least 30 carries. If Todd Gurley were to fall this low, the Broncos would be getting a gift. Peyton Manning isn't getting any younger and while replacing him isn't a high priority in the near future, taking the burden off his shoulders should be. Gurley is built very well at just under 6'1, 232 lbs, and after seeing him break loose a number of times in the first month of the season, including a 100-yd kick return for a touchdown, his rumored sub-4.5 forty speed isn't so far-fetched. He is also an underrated pass catcher, showing soft hands and the ability to extend his arms to the football as opposed to catching it with his body. - Austin Smith
29 San Diego
Cameron Erving
    Florida St
    LOT
    Reach/Value:     +1
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
304
Alternate Pick #1
La'el Collins
Alternate Pick #2
Ellis McCarthy
The Chargers are one of the surprise teams in the early going of the 2014 season, with just a narrow road loss vs unbeaten Arizona tarnishing their slate (at press time). The team is getting great play out of King Dunlap at left tackle, but Dunlap will be a Free Agent in 2015. If the Chargers expect continued success going forward, it will be necessary to protect Phil Rivers' blindside. Florida State has put out numerous Offensive Linemen as of late; Cameron Erving may be the best of the bunch.
30 Seattle
Ty Montgomery
    Stanford
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     -8
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
215
Alternate Pick #1
Nelson Agholor
Alternate Pick #2
DeVante Parker
Seattle WR's are playing well but no one is a standout or go-to receiver. Ty Montgomery toughness and height would be a good addition to an otherwise small and slender receiving corps. The team is lacking a real goal-line threat in the passing game, putting the onus on an aging Marshawn Lynch. Montgomery could come in and at the very least provide a big body for redzone attempts.
31 Arizona
Eric Striker
    Oklahoma
    OLB34
    Reach/Value:     -3
Height:
6'0"
Weight:
220
Alternate Pick #1
Hau'oli Kikaha
Alternate Pick #2
A.J. Cann
The Cardinals are lacking Linebackers. Their LB depth has been so depleted that they have been using Rookie Safety Deone Bucannon as a Nickel Linebacker. Striker is too small to hold up on the edge in the Cardinals' Defense but Defensive Coordinator Todd Bowles is very innovative and will find a way to get guys on the field. With Striker's size (6'0" 220 lbs) he might be better to the Cardinals' WILB position that was formerly filled by Daryl Washington. ~Jordan Plocher, Cardinals Analyst
32 Cincinnati
La'el Collins
    LSU
    LOT
    Reach/Value:     -7
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
315
Alternate Pick #1
Spencer Drango
Alternate Pick #2
Kurtis Drummond
Big Whitworth is looking to lengthen his career at some point by moving inside to Guard. Cincy doesn't have many glaring needs but must continue to improve the run game up front as well as to protect franchise QB Andy Dalton. Collins is a big strong kid who improved his draft stock by staying in school. He adds great depth right away and could become the Bengals' blindside protector for the next 10 years.
