2015 NFL Mock Draft: Final Mock 7 Rounds

Round 2

Ereck Flowers slips to the second round. If Tampa Bay took him would Jameis Winston succeed with Demar Dotson at left tackle and Ereck Flowers at right tackle?

Posted By: Chris Ransom Last Updated: April 30, 2015. Updated Every Thursday leading up to Draft Day.

  1. Tennessee Titans: Breshad Perriman, WR, Central Florida

    The Tennessee Titans added Byron Bell who started 15 games at left tackle to compliment Titans' left tackle Taylor Lewan. I expect Bell to compete with Byron Stingily for the right tackle job since Stingily has dominated in OTA's so far.

    Still, the Titans will get an offensive players to compliment Marcus Mariota. You look at wide receiver for the Titans. It's not the best situation with an injury prone Justin Hunter who needs to do more to be a #1 receiver. You got Kendall Wright as a #2 receiver, but he caught 3 of his six receiving touchdowns in the slot. Harry Douglas is a slot receiver that can come in and play on the outside if someone gets injured. There's also the last minute addition of Hakeem Nicks who left the Indianapolis Colts to sign with their division rival known as the Tennessee Titans. None of those guys sound like legit #1 options for Marcus Mariota.

    Tennessee brought in multiple receivers for individual workouts. Some of those guys included Phillip Dorsett, Breshad Perriman, Sammie Coates, and Dorial Green-Beckham. When you bring in that many receivers for an individual workout, it usually means you are taking a wide receiver at the top of round 2 if you go with a quarterback in round 1.

  2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Ereck Flowers, RT, Miami FL

    A source from the Pewter Report told us that Tampa Bay would release or trade left tackle Anthony Collins, right end Michael Johnson, and free safety Dashon Goldson to save cap space. That's exactly what Tampa Bay did. They also told us that the Buccaneers would move Demar Dotson from right tackle to left tackle, similar to what Carolina did with Byron Bell in 2014 only to draft a bookend right tackle in the second round.

    Tampa Bay released left tackle Anthony Collins and kept Damar Dotson. The Buccaneers believe Dotson can play left tackle even though he struggled at right tackle. Truth be told, they should have kept Collins and replaced Dotson.

    Tampa Bay loves Ereck Flowers. I think the Buccaneers want Demar Dotson and Ereck Flowers to be on Winston's offensive tackles in 2015.

  3. Oakland Raiders: Dorial Green-Beckham, WR, Oklahoma

    Oakland sent all of their scouts and coaching staff to Stanford's Pro Day. The player the Raiders were the least impressed with was Andrus Peat. Denzel Perryman was another player they brought in for an individual workout, but he tore his hamstring. This pick will come down to one of three players. Those three players are Dorial Green-Beckham, Breshad Perriman, and Eli Harold at left end.

    Oakland needs a #1 receiver for Derek Carr. Dorial Green-Beckham is the only player left with both Perriman and Harold moving up in this mock draft. Oakland gambles on the receiver that had got dismissed from Missouri and had to sit out a year at Oklahoma.

  4. Jacksonville Jaguars: Eli Harold, LOLB, Virginia

    Jacksonville gave Stephen Wisnewski of the Oakland Raiders a one year contract. The Jaguars addressed all of their needs on the offensive line. This offensive line has Luke Joeckel at left tackle, Zane Beadles at left guard, Wisnewski at center who played under offensive coordinator Greg Olsen in Oakland, Brandon Linder at right guard, and Jeremy Parnell at right tackle.

    I think the Jaguars are contempt with those starters on their offensive line even though I'm not. The Jaguars have four first round picks they love in their top 20 outside the top 10 on their draft board with Eli Harold at 12, Trae Waynes at 13, Landon Collins at 16, and Marcus Peters at 18. There's a chance one of those guys goes to Jacksonville here.

    Someone close to the Jaguars emailed us their draft board and told us they will take Randy Gregory if he falls to the second round. I think they also feel that way about Eli Harold. Harold can play 4-3 defensive end, 4-3 outside linebacker, or 3-4 outside linebacker on either side of the football field. That's why the Jaguars take Harold here.

    Previous Pick: Andrus Peat, RT, Stanford

  5. New York Jets: Brett Hundley, QB, UCLA

    The Jets grab Hundley in round 2 despite the fact that 9 different NFL teams that sent us their draft board gave Hundley a 3rd round grade. Then again, Hundley continues to show me late first round quarterback material.

    Like Winston I think Hundley has potential to become an elite quarterback if you are patient with him. I gave Hundley a minimum overall grade of 70 and a maximum potential grade of 90. Winston got a minimum overall grade of 74 and a maximum overall grade of 99. Despite this, I think Winston will end up maxing out at 89.

    In fact, I like Hundley so much, I could see him maxing out at 90 and possibly surpassing both Winston and Mariota if you sit him out his first year and then let him be your starter for two seasons following his rookie season. Hundley can become an elite quarterback, but he's going to need to sit out for a year and then get two years of experience as a starter before he plays like a Pro Bowler on Sunday.

    UCLA's quarterback could be a late first rounder or an early third rounder, there's a lot of range with Hundley which is why mocking him in round 2 is the perfect median. Since the Jets need a quarterback UCLA's signal-caller becomes a New Yorker when the Jets take him with this pick.

  6. Washington Redskins: Jake Fisher, RT, Oregon

    Washington needed a cornerback. The Redskins reloaded on the secondary leading up to the draft by adding Duke Ihenacho at strong safety, DaShon Goldson at free safety, and Chris Culliver at cornerback to compliment DeAngelo Hall.

    Once again, Dan Snyder thinks he can buy a secondary that will get him to the NFL Playoffs. Thanks to addressing the secondary, Washington looks to address right tackle. Oregon offensive tackle Jake Fisher would be a good pick for the Redskins with his versatility to play either side of the offensive line.

  7. Chicago Bears: Sammie Coates, WR, Auburn

    Chicago has Sammie Coates going in the second round on the draft board they sent me. Coates is an SEC receiver with massive size, but a lack of statistical production. Alshon Jeffery had the same issue coming out of South Carolina and look how he turned out.

  8. New York Giants: Cedric Ogbuhei, LT, Texas A&M

    The New York Giants grab their left tackle here after taking Amari Cooper in the first round. The Giants have La'El Collins and Andrus Peat graded out as top 10 picks with Cedric Ogbguhei ranked as a top 16 pick. Brandon Scherff is ranked 18th on their draft board. Donovan Smith is considered a late first round prospect on their board.

    The Giants could move Ogubhei into left tackle and move William Beatty to right tackle and Justin Pugh inside to left guard. That makes a lot of sense if the Giants are sold on Ogbuhei. The Giants wanted Jake Matthews in 2014 before he went sixth to Atlanta, and Ogbuhei was his teammate at the time at Texas A&M meaning he's been on the Giants radar for over 2 years now.

    Previous Pick: Donovan Smith, LT, Penn State

  9. St. Louis Rams: Cameron Erving, C, Florida State

    Cameron Erving will go ahead of Hroniss Grasu. Both centers are incredibly talented. Erving is more durable the injury questions with Grasu might keep him from getting picked ahead of Erving even though he had an awesome Pro Day at Oregon. The concern with Grasu is that hardly any teams brought him in for individual workouts. Those teams that did weren't impressed. Erving was basically the only center that got invited to teams for an individual workout meaning that teams view Erving as the only immediate impact center in the 2015 NFL Draft.

  10. Atlanta Falcons: Maxx Williams, TE, Minnesota

    Atlanta needs to find a tight end. Maxx Williams falls to the Atlanta Falcons in this mock draft.

  11. Cleveland Browns: Shaq Thompson, 3-4 ROLB, Washington

    The Browns love Shaq Thompson. Mainly because he can play anywhere at linebacker in a 3-4 or a 4-3 defense. Does an awesome job in man or zone coverage. He may have the size of a safety, but he's a consistent run stuffer. If Cleveland can develop his pass rushing, this will be a steal in the 2015 NFL Draft.

  12. New Orleans Saints: Hau'Oli Kikaha, 3-4 ROLB, Washington

    New Orleans needs to get a pass rusher. Hau'Oli Kikaha is the best pass rusher left as he led the nation with 19.5 sacks. If the Saints really want a tight end or 3-4 middle linebacker, they can deal both of their thirds to move back into the second. Getting a pass rusher is without a doubt the top need for the Saints in the second round.

  13. Minnesota Vikings: Benardrick McKinney, MLB, Mississippi State

    Minnesota needs a starting middle linebacker. Benardrick McKinney was the only middle linebacker to get an invite to the 2015 NFL Draft. That means McKinney will go in the first two rounds. McKinney will succeed if a 4-3 team like the Vikings takes him here. If a 3-4 team takes this guy in round 1, you are looking at a future NFL bust. There are also concerns about McKinney being a 2 down linebacker on first and second down despite his incredible versatility which is why I have him going here in the second round.

  14. San Francisco 49ers: Laken Tomlinson, LG, Duke

    San Francisco needs a left guard to replace Mike Iupati. They get their man in Laken Tomlinson here.

    Previous Pick: Paul Dawson, 3-4 MLB, TCU

  15. Miami Dolphins: Stephone Anthony, MLB, Clemson

    Miami gave up Dannelle Ellerbe by trading him to the New Orleans Saints. With no third round pick, the Dolphins take Anthony, who they prefer over Denzel Perryman.

  16. San Diego Chargers: Lorenzo Mauldin, 3-4 ROLB, Louisville

    San Diego released 3-4 right outside linebacker Dwight Freeney. Jarrett Johnson retired at 3-4 left outside linebacker. Malden can play 4-3 defensive end or 3-4 outside linebacker on either side making him a perfect fit for San Diego.

  17. Kansas City Chiefs: Paul Dawson, 3-4 MLB, TCU

    Kansas City wants a 3-4 middle linebacker. Paul Dawson may be a two down linebacker and some scouts say he lacks work ethic. The Chiefs love him and believe he's the best 3-4 middle linebacker in the entire draft. Paul Dawson will be the pick here if he slips to the Chiefs in the second round.

    Previous Pick: Hroniss Grasu, C, Oregon

  18. Buffalo Bills: Jalen Collins, CB, LSU

    Buffalo needs a #2 corner across from Stephon Gilmore. They also could use upgrades at both strong safety and free safety. That's why Jalen Collins makes so much sense here.

  19. Houston Texans: Cody Prewitt, SS, Ole Miss

    Cody Prewitt is the top ranked safety in this draft after Landon Collins. Houston would be getting a steal if they landed Prewitt at 51.

  20. Philadelphia Eagles: Marcus Peters, CB, Washington

    Philadelphia may need a guard. Marcus Peters is too good to pass up on at 22. With Peters as your field cornerback, Byron Maxwell in the boundary like he was next to Richard Sherman in Seattle and former Oregon Duck Walter Thurmond in the nickel, this cornerback tandem is set. Plus I gave the Eagles Landon Collins in the first round to compliment Malcolm Jenkins.

    Previous Pick: Laken Tomlinson, LG, Duke

  21. Cincinnati Bengals: Carl Davis, DT, Iowa

    Cincinnati continues to add key pieces on their defensive line. This time they take Carl Davis out of Iowa here.

  22. Detroit Lions: Donovan Smith, LT, Penn State

    Detroit wants a new left tackle. The Lions want to move Riley Reiff over to right tackle. Donovan Smith is a left tackle that got an invite to the 2015 NFL Draft. I have the Lions taking Smith here with Washington cornerback Marcus Peters off the board.

    Previous Pick: Marcus Peters, CB, Washington

  23. Arizona Cardinals: Jay Ajayi, RB, Boise State

    Arizona saw Jay Ajayi tear through the Arizona Wildcats run defense led by 2016 prospect Scooby Wright at the University of Phoenix Stadium Arizona where the Cardinals happen to play.

  24. Pittsburgh Steelers: Alex Carter, CB, Stanford

    Alex Carter impressed with his 4.36 40 time at Stanford's Pro Day. He also did well at the Steelers individual workout. Carter could be a good option in the second round if the Steelers take a pass rusher like Virginia's Eli Harold in the first round.

  25. Carolina Panthers: Mario Edwards, RE, Florida State

    Carolina loves Mario Edwards. The Panthers are even more intrigued about having him as a pass rushing right end with Greg Hardy gone. Edwards boosted his stock at the NFL Combine and Florida State's Pro Day before wowing the Panthers at his individual workout. Edwards looks like the 2013 Edwards that some considered a late first round pick with all the momentum he's been showing leading up to the end of the draft process.

  26. Baltimore Ravens: Devin Funchess, TE, Michigan

    I have Devin Funchess graded out as my #2 tight end in the 2015 NFL Draft. Funchess would be an awesome addition this late in the second round.

  27. Denver Broncos: Jordan Phillips, NT, Oklahoma

    Denver will need to address the 3-4 defensive line at nose tackle. Jordan Philips makes too much sense. He might be a 2 down nose tackle, but he knows the 3-4 scheme. In fact you can start Sylvester Williams off as a 2 down nose tackle and bring in Philips on third down.

  28. Dallas Cowboys: Louis Trinca-Pasat, DT, Iowa

    Dallas needs a 4-3 defensive tackle more than anything. Louis Trinca-Pasat is emerging into a late second-round prospect.

  29. Indianapolis Colts: Jordan Richards, SS, Stanford

    The Indianapolis Colts need a safety. Jordan Richards is the top safety left, plus pairing him up with a Pro Bowler like Mike Davis would do wonders for his game.

  30. Green Bay Packers: Clive Walford, TE, Miami FL

    Green Bay has Clive Walford graded out as their top tight end behind Maxx Williams. I think Walford would be the pick at this point.

  31. Seattle Seahawks: Michael Bennett, DT, Ohio State

    Seattle needs to find a starting defensive tackle. Two Michael Bennett's are better than one. Having a Michael Bennett on the defensive line at defensive end and defensive tackle would confuse quarterbacks.

  32. New England Patriots: Denzel Perryman, MLB, Miami FL

    New England could take a guard. With Tre Jackson, Ali Marpet, Shaq Mason, and A.J. Cann all still on the board, the Patriots might wait until round 3 to address the guard position.

    New England loved watching Denzel Perryman at the Patriots' individual workouts. Perryman had 110 total tackles in 2014 plus he has the versatility to play 4-3 right outside linebacker, 4-3 middle linebacker, or 4-3 right outside linebacker. Even if injuries occur at linebacker, Perryman gives you much needed depth plus an immediate impact player if one of your three starting linebackers fails to stay healthy.
