    *** 2015 NFL Mock Draft (2 rounds) updated July 23. This NFL Mock Draft will be updated at least once per week during the regular season(Tuesday afternoons and other times for important events.). Check out old versions of this 2015 NFL Mock Draft in the archived mock draft section. Follow @walterfootball for NFL Draft updates. ***

  1. New York Jets: Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon
    Many Jet fans may complain about this mock being unrealistic because it has their team at No. 1 overall, but that would completely ignore the fact that Houston went from a divisional winner to owner of the worst record in the league. New York has very little talent on its roster, and it only made things worse by bringing two terrible characters for the locker room to be the team's new starting quarterback and running back. The former Eagle quit on his team in 2011 and 2012 (not to mention 2005 in Atlanta, which was embarrassing), while Chris Johnson constantly throws teammates under the bus when he's not playing well. They will poison the Jets, who will be atrocious by the end of the 2014 season.

    It's a close call between Marcus Mariota and Jameis Winston in terms of talent, but the former has a slight edge right now. With most things being equal, Mariota is clean off the field. Winston, meanwhile, has several off-the-field issues that could scare some teams away.

  2. Jacksonville Jaguars: Randy Gregory, DE/OLB, Nebraska
    The Jaguars had a chance to draft Khalil Mack, but they opted for Blake Bortles instead. They also had the opportunity to obtain Dion Jordan the previous spring, but they passed on him in favor of Luke Joeckel. Perhaps this will be the year that they find a stud LEO for Gus Bradley's defense. Randy Gregory could be the first defensive player off the board next spring.

  3. Oakland Raiders: Andrus Peat, OT, Stanford
    The Raiders signed Donald Penn this offseason, but as with most of their other acquisitions, he can't be considered a long-term solution at the position. Oakland could find its franchise left tackle in this loaded class.

  4. Minnesota Vikings: Amari Cooper, WR, Alabama
    The Vikings recently spent a first-round selection on a receiver, but they might be in the market for another wideout to go along with Cordarrelle Patterson. Greg Jennings was a predictable bust in his first season with Minnesota, so he'll need to be replaced if he struggles again.

  5. Dallas Cowboys: Leonard Williams, DE, USC
    Jeremy Mincey is expected to play a big role in Dallas' defense this year. Think about that for a second. The Cowboys added Demarcus Lawrence in the second round of this past draft, but they'll need to add another pass-rusher soon with Anthony Spencer due to hit free agency again in March.

  6. New York Giants: Landon Collins, S, Alabama
    Will Hill has been suspended, and the Giants simply couldn't count on him going forward, which is why they released him. There's a good chance they'll obtain an upgrade at safety next offseason.

  7. Carolina Panthers: Cedric Ogbuhei, OT, Texas A&M
    The Panthers didn't want to reach for a left tackle at No. 28. The problem is that they didn't address the position at all. They won't be reaching for Cedric Ogbuhei at this juncture. As it stands now, he could sneak into the top five.

  8. Cleveland Browns: Shilique Calhoun, DE/OLB, Michigan State
    The Browns have two top-10 selections, thanks to the Bills, so they can afford to use one on the top player available. That could be Shilique Calhoun, who might be able to bolster the pass rush. Paul Kruger was a bust signing, while Barkevious Mingo didn't do anything as a rookie. If that trend continues, Calhoun would also fill a big need.

  9. Cleveland Browns: La'El Collins, OT/G, LSU
    The Browns would have considered Greg Robinson had he fallen to them in the 2014 NFL Draft. Perhaps they'll address the right tackle position at this juncture and move Mitchell Schwartz inside.

  10. Miami Dolphins: Todd Gurley, RB, Georgia
    The Dolphins didn't trust Lamar Miller as an every-down player, so they signed Knowshon Moreno to be their new starter. Unfortunately, Moreno has proven to be damaged goods. Miami will need a long-term option at running back, and it's fortunate that the 2015 NFL Draft will be packed with talented prospects at the position.

    For those who don't believe three or four running backs will be chosen in the first round next spring, this class has stud players at the position, so it's going to happen. Besides, Trent Richardson was chosen No. 3 overall a couple of years ago.

  11. Detroit Lions: P.J. Williams, CB, Florida State
    Both Aaron Rodgers and Jay Cutler had to be thrilled when the Lions selected Eric Ebron in the 2014 NFL Draft because they neglected their secondary once again. Perhaps that'll change next spring.

  12. Tennessee Titans: Jameis Winston, QB, Florida State
    The Titans planned to give Jake Locker another year. That was their plan the entire time. After all, he's a former first-round pick, so he has the talent to succeed if coached properly. If, however, Ken Whisenhunt can't get Locker to be consistent, Tennessee will consider a quarterback the following spring.

    Jameis Winston has the talent to go No. 1 overall, but character issues could drop him. If so, a team like Tennessee could definitely take a chance on him at this juncture.

  13. Kansas City Chiefs: Cameron Erving, OT, Florida State
    The Chiefs recently spent the No. 1 overall pick on a left tackle, but Andy Reid loves to upgrade the trenches, so he may search for an upgrade on the other side of the front.

  14. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Brett Hundley, QB, UCLA
    Considering that the Buccaneers considered Johnny Manziel at No. 7 overall, perhaps they'll select a quarterback in the 2015 NFL Draft to be the next face of their franchise. Josh McCown should be able to succeed in Tampa, but he's just a short-term option.

  15. Houston Texans: Ronald Darby, CB, Florida State
    The Texans had many areas they wanted to fill in the 2014 NFL Draft, so they couldn't get around to all of them. One need that went ignored was the cornerback position. Houston may opt to upgrade that spot earlier next spring.

  16. Washington Redskins: KeiVarae Russell, CB, Notre Dame
    The Redskins weren't able to address their secondary until the fourth round this past April. They'll need to find a new No. 1 cornerback soon.
