2015 NFL Mock Draft: Round 1 - Picks 17-32

  1. San Diego Chargers: Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin
    Ryan Mathews is an impending free agent, while Branden Oliver cooled off following a hot start. If Mathews leaves, the Chargers will have to find someone to complement Oliver. Melvin Gordon, who is viewed as the next Jamaal Charles, would help Philip Rivers in the backfield.

  2. Kansas City Chiefs: Landon Collins, S, Alabama
    The Chiefs will need to think about bringing in a new safety, as Eric Berry may not be able to play football ever again, unfortunately. They can replace Berry with another SEC safety, as Landon Collins is one of the top prospects still available.

    Pick change; previously Eric Kendricks, ILB

  3. Cleveland Browns: T.J. Clemmings, OT, Pittsburgh
    The Browns wanted to upgrade Mitchell Schwartz last year, with plans to move him inside. Here's a potential new starter, as T.J. Clemmings' stock is rising right now.

  4. Philadelphia Eagles: Trae Waynes, CB, Michigan State
    I've had several Eagle fans ask me if trading up for Marcus Mariota is a possibility. It's not if Tampa likes him. The Buccaneers actually wanted to move up to No. 1 before they had the first pick because they're desperate for a franchise quarterback, so they're not going to suddenly surrender the top choice. From what I've gathered, I don't even think three first-rounders would get it done for Philadelphia. Thus, if the Buccaneers choose Mariota over Jameis Winston, it's not happening. The news about Tampa liking Winston more than Mariota makes it more likely, especially given that the Titans like Nick Foles, as Charlie Campbell reported on our NFL Draft Rumors page.

    Here's a more realistic first-round option. The Eagles have a terrible group of corners, and Chip Kelly likes tall defenders like Trae Waynes.

  5. Cincinnati Bengals: Eli Harold, DE/OLB, Virginia
    The Bengals' pass rush was inconsistent this past year, as the team has missed Michael Johnson's presence. Perhaps they'll spend their first-round pick on a defensive end.

    Pick change; previously Alvin Dupree, DE

  6. Pittsburgh Steelers: P.J. Williams, CB, Florida State
    Cortez Allen was so bad against the Colts that he was actually trending on Twitter. Ike Taylor, meanwhile, was miserable in his return from injury. The Steelers are in desperate need of help at the cornerback position, and they're getting a prospect who fits their scheme well.

    Pick change; previously Kevin Johnson, CB

  7. Detroit Lions: Eddie Goldman, DT, Florida State
    The Lions suddenly need to look at defensive tackles. Both Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley are hitting free agency in March, as is top backup C.J. Mosley. It might be difficult to re-sign two of those three.

  8. Arizona Cardinals: Arik Armstead, DE/DT, Oregon
    The Cardinals will consider an upgrade to the defensive line, as Darnell Dockett won't be around much longer. Dockett, 34 in May, is coming off a torn ACL and happens to be entering his contract year.

    Pick change; previously Vic Beasley, DE/OLB

  9. Carolina Panthers: La'el Collins, OT/G, LSU
    The Panthers couldn't block for Cam Newton whatsoever early in the season. The offensive line has been able to gel, but there are still some glaring holes there, particularly at both tackle positions.

  10. Baltimore Ravens: Ronald Darby, CB, Florida State
    It's amazing that the Ravens have been able to maintain such a strong defense despite losing some future Hall of Famers. Their front seven is great, but their secondary is in shambles right now. They really need help at corner.

  11. Dallas Cowboys: Markus Golden, DE/OLB, Missouri
    The Cowboys couldn't get any pressure on Colt McCoy in an embarrassing Monday night defeat. Eli Manning also had all the time he needed to find Odell Beckham. Mark Sanchez had a clean pocket on Thanksgiving. Aaron Rodgers had all the time he needed in the divisional round of the playoffs. That has to change. Several upgrades can be obtained on the defensive line.

  12. Denver Broncos: Cameron Erving, OT/G/C, Florida State
    The Broncos have some issues on their offensive line that they need to address. That, as well as Peyton Manning's decaying arm, was the reason for their downfall in the playoffs. Help at center is especially needed.

  13. Indianapolis Colts: Eric Kendricks, ILB, UCLA
    The Colts had major problems defending tight ends all year. They'll need to fix that if they want to get by Rob Gronkowski and the Patriots. To do so, they'll need to seriously upgrade the iinside linebacker position.

    Pick change; previously Eli Harold, DE/OLB

  14. Green Bay Packers: Benardrick McKinney, LB, Mississippi State
    There was utter outrage from Packer fans when I didn't mock an inside linebacker to them in a recent update. The position will have to be addressed, as Clay Matthews playing there is just a temporary solution.

    Pick change; previously Jordan Phillips, NT

  15. New England Patriots: Devin Smith, WR, Ohio State
    The Patriots have been unstoppable on offense for the most part, but they still need to find some help for Tom Brady in the receiving corps. Relying on the likes of Brandon LaFell doesn't sound like a good proposition.

  16. Seattle Seahawks: Sammie Coates, WR, Auburn
    The Seahawks need play-makers in their receiving corps. They love athletic players, so I have to believe that they'd consider Sammie Coates, who has loads of potential, at the end of the first round.
