Alternate Pick #2
DeVante Parker
For the record I am still pi**ed about that call on Nick Moody!! Going into Seattle is hard enough without having the refs against you. Now that the Niners are out of the hunt, we're pretty sure that Jim Harbaugh won't be returning. On the other hand, QB Colin Kaepernick's future depends upon the new coach, but my guess is that many of the questions that Jed York and Trent Baalke pose to prospective HC candidates will be of the "What would you do to return our $114M QB to the level of performance that he exhibited earlier in his career?" variety. Given this, the Niners will use the draft to address expected weak points. None are weaker than CB. Check out the Niner's 2015 roster of Free Agents: Cook, Culliver, and Cox are all mercenaries.
18 San Diego
Danny Shelton

    DT34

Alternate Pick #1
T.J. Clemmings
Alternate Pick #2
DeVante Parker
After weeks of slotting in a LT to the Chargers here in RD1, I went a different route to see if it was attractive to address the Defensive Line before the Offensive Line, while still coming away with a solid LT prospect. If you check Round 2 after this, I hope you'll agree that it can work. In Danny Shelton, the Bolts get a player who can be a difference-maker in the heart of their defense, like Haloti Ngata is for the Ravens. At 6'2" and almost 340 lbs., Shelton has a rare combination of power and agility. If you don't believe me, check this play out! Sean Lissemore is a good rotational NT, especially for passing downs, but in only 248 snaps (through Week 15) his -9.2 score, according to ProFootballFocus.com's system, places him 3rd last among eligible NTs. Time for an upgrade.
19 Kansas City
DeVante Parker
    Louisville
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     -1
Height:

Weight:

Alternate Pick #1
Kevin White
Alternate Pick #2
Devin Funchess
We can only speculate how Alex Smith's stats would jump if he had a pair of quality outside receivers to throw to. Looking at the Chiefs' current stat sheet, only Dwayne Bowe has accumulated more than 20 receptions among WRs. And Bowe's 52-667-0 TD statline doesn't scare anybody. Except GM John Dorsey, who is ponying up $11M per year through 2018 for Bowe's production. Help is needed; personally, I wouldn't be opposed if the Chiefs were to consider trading a couple first-rounders (and change) to get at Alabama's Amari Cooper. But the draft's second-rated WR is no slouch. Parker's 80-inch wingspan and 4.4 speed made him Teddy Bridgewater's favorite target at Louisville. He should be on KCs' radar as a potential RD1 draftee.
20 Cleveland
Alex Carter
    Stanford
    CB

Alternate Pick #1
Kevin White
Alternate Pick #2
Devin Funchess
Stanford lost six of their front-seven starters on defense in 2014. The pressure was on a young secondary, where Alex Carter blossomed into a terror. The Junior CB petitioned the NFL's Advisory Committee for entry into the 2015 draft, and has officially declared for the draft after receiving a RD 1 grade. Carter's eight passes defended (per cfbstats.com) don't stand out, but watching his techniques in press- and man-coverages, along with his great closing speed, make for a very high ceiling. He has the size to start in the slot immediately for the Browns. In coming weeks, we'll kick some tires on players like ILB Denzel Perryman, and DT34 Ellis McCarthy. ~Mike Sudds, Browns Analyst
21 Pittsburgh
Leonard Floyd
    Georgia
    OLB34
    Reach/Value:     -8
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
230
Alternate Pick #1
Ifo Ekpre-Olomu
Alternate Pick #2
Melvin Gordon
The Steelers are on pace to record only 27 sacks this season, which would set a new franchise low for sacks in a 16-game season. If this wasn't bad enough, James Harrison and Jason Worilds are not under contract next year. Our 2013 RD1 pick, Jarvis Jones, has struggled to stay healthy and has been largely ineffective rushing the passer. The DRAFTSIM selects another Bulldog in Leonard Floyd to bolster the Steeler pass rush. While the eligible Sophomore has put together a decent resume creating havoc in the backfield, recent reports indicate he's likely staying between the hedges for another year. The Steelers should consider defensive playmakers OLB34 Alvin Dupree or CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu in his place.

Alternate Pick #2
Devin Funchess
Ok, be honest, did you really believe Justin Forsett would be an UPGRADE over Ray Rice? Few, if any, did, though it was clear the former Scarlet Knight was fading fast. Still, the improved running game has paid big dividends for the Baltimore offense with the team averaging nearly 7 more points per game than last season. The question for Ozzie Newsome lies in whether he will spend big money to retain the thirty-year-old legs of the journeyman. For the Ravens, the answer may lie in this talented Wisconsin running back, the best prospect at the position to come along in years. The Badger has put up eye-popping stats over the last two seasons, but the most impressive number is the 7.6 yards per carry earned while defenses stacked the box.
23 Cincinnati

Alternate Pick #1
Eddie Goldman
Alternate Pick #2
Denzel Perryman
It's a priority to strengthen the offensive and defensive lines this offseason. The AFC North comes down to the wire every season. Keeping youth and muscle in the trenches is the key to the division. Dalton is the franchise QB, take it or leave it, and continuing to protect him will only help his development. T.J. Clemmings is a mammoth of a man. He's very strong and understands leverage well since he began his collegiate career as a DE. The biggest knock on him would be lack of experience. He hasn't played football as long as most of his peers, but started every game as a Senior with tremendous production. His intangibles are off the charts. I would consider him a sleeping giant, and after a year at RT he could become a perennial All-Pro LT for the next decade.

Eddie Goldman
When ProFootballFocus gives your offense the highest grade in the league (+101.6) but your defense has a negative grade of -20.1, it provides an idea of where you should concentrate your draft priorities. Other than rookie DeMarcus Lawrence, most of the DE depth chart become F/A in either 2015 (Spencer & Selvie) or 2016 (Mincey & Jack Crawford); as a result, adding exterior pressure for DC Marinelli's platoon of "rushmen" is paramount in this year's draft. The Spartan 2-year letterman has recorded 80 tackles, 27.5 for losses, and 15 sacks in 39 career games . . . good enough for me!

Alternate Pick #1
Ifo Ekpre-Olomu
Alternate Pick #2
Denzel Perryman
Philly needs help in many areas but WR stands out. Maclin is a Free Agent this spring, as are Smith and Maehl. Rookie Matthews has flashed at times but Riley Cooper is the worst WR in the NFL, at least that's what ProFootballFocus.com's proprietary statistics say. While not in Amari Cooper's league, White could be the 2nd WR off the board.

Marcus Peters
Alternate Pick #2
Shaq Thompson
The Ducks' corner was a top-ten prospect last year before opting to return for this season. What happened that lowered his draft stock to a late RD-1 pick? In the film I've studied I see opponents scheming him out of the game plan a la Prince Amukamara, Dre Kirkpatrick, Morris Clayborne, and Patrick Peterson. Ekpre-Olomu is equally comfortable at LCB, or RCB, but I view this feisty Corner as a can't-miss Slot CB. Need three seconds to get to the QB? Ekpre-Olomu will start a fight with his assignment in 3...2...1... Against taller WRs, he plays the "under-tech" as well as the Bears' Charles "Peanut" Tillman. That's tall praise for a small CB. In the weeks to come, we'll share some film, review some stats, and look at the Lions' secondary through different lenses. ~Mike Sudds

Denzel Perryman
Two excruciatingly painful stats jump right off the page of Pro Football Focus for fans of the Colts: (1) Pass rush is non-existent (-25.0) and (2) Pass blocking isn't pretty either (-27.2). And with the run defense in the negative numbers as well, going mostly defense in the 2015 NFL Draft is nearly a certainty. If it weren't for the pass coverage and special teams, the Colts could very well be a sub-500 club right now, instead of enjoying yet another AFC South crown. Even with concerns at OL and ILB, the Colts still need a solid fireplug to help improve run defense. So in this CMD, UCLA's versatile DL Ellis McCarthy gets the nod. But it's still a very close call between him and Denzel Perryman, Gerod Holliman, or La'el Collins. With any of those four, the Colts are much improved.

The Packers have added starters at every position group on the defense in the last two years except for one - Inside Linebacker. Packer fans are continually looking for AJ Hawk's replacement and this year they have a VERY good case. Though a bit undersized, Perryman figures as a three-down player in the NFL, and would bring more athleticism to the position for the Packers.

A.J. Cann
Alternate Pick #2
Sammie Coates
"Excellent burst", "massive catching radius", "sneaky-fast, vertical threat", "matchup nightmare", "WAY too many drops" - these are all phrases used to describe what Devin Funchess brings to the table as a prospect. The first four sound great, don't they? Unfortunately, it's that last bit that will have NFL Scouts scratching their heads. Having said that, recently there have been a few 6'5", high-ceiling WR prospects with the same concerns - Alshon Jeffery and Kelvin Benjamin - and both of those guys have seemingly figured things out at the Pro level. That's no guarantee that Funchess will do the same, but given that all three starting WRs on the Seahawks depth chart are at or below 6 feet tall, taking a shot on a guy this talented makes a lot of sense for John Schneider.

Dorial Green-Beckham
Sammie Coates made it official, he will declare for the NFL Draft in 2015. Coates graduated in only two and a half years, which shows he has the mental capacity to pick up this complicated Patriots offense. Coates is a big physical player who isn't afraid to throw his 6'2 and 201-lb. body around. He is inconsistent at times, but has the big-play ability that the Patriots offense is lacking. Some scouts have chattered that Coates is only a deep threat and nothing more. The thing is that the one trick Coates is alleged to possess is the trick the Patriots desperately need. While I agree that Coates' route-running ability needs to be refined, his route-running limitations stem mostly from Auburn's scheme which is run-heavy and relies only on streaks and crossing routes.

Alvin Dupree
It is no surprise that the Arizona Cardinals' offense needs interior line help. They haven't been able to get the running game going at all this year. According to NFL.com, the Cardinals rank 28th in the league in rushing yards per game. However, when Jonathan Cooper cracked the starting lineup the team started to run the ball better. Hopefully, Cooper is now officially out of the Bruce Arians' doghouse and into the starting lineup for good. The other two interior line positions (Right Guard, Center) need to be upgraded. In this DRAFTSIM the Cardinals fill one of their biggest needs right away. A.J. Cannis a 4-year starter in the SEC. He can move people against their will in the run game and set the bottom of the pocket in the pass game. ~Jordan Plocher, Cardinals Analyst

Alternate Pick #2
La'el Collins
O-Line will be tough to pass on but in this scenario, Holliman makes sense too. Denver is going to have some tough decisions with in free agency. While Demaryius and Julius Thomas seem destined to return, Rahim Moore could be tough to keep. Broncos fans know him best for his mistimed jump to deflect a pass in the second round of the 2012 playoffs against Baltimore, but he has put together a solid year in 2014. ProFootballFocus.com has his counterpart, T.J.Ward listed as the 85th ranked safety in the league, whereas Moore ranks 18th. If they choose to let Moore walk, they have to bring in a similar player to accomdate Ward's weaknesses in coverage. Holliman, the 2014 Jim Thorpe Award winner, led the country with an NCAA record-tying 14 interceptions. ~Austin Smith
