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

Last update: Wednesday, Dec. 17, 2014.
Next update: Next week. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

*** This mock draft will be updated at least once per week (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 updates. ***

  1. San Diego Chargers: Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin
    Ryan Mathews is an impending free agent, while Branden Oliver has 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.

    Follow @walterfootball for updates.

  2. Cleveland Browns: Ereck Flowers, OT, Miami
    The Browns were thinking about finding an upgrade over right tackle Mitchell Schwartz this offseason, and they would've considered Greg Robinson if he fell to them.

    Pick change; previously Leonard Floyd, DE/OLB

  3. Kansas City Chiefs: Ronald Darby, CB, Florida State
    Sean Smith has played extremely well for the Chiefs this year, but how much longer can that hold up? Kansas City also needs a starter across from him, as the coaching staff did a poor job of installing a scheme to build around Brandon Flowers' strengths.

    Pick change; previously Ereck Flowers, OT

  4. Philadelphia Eagles: Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, CB, Oregon
    Chip Kelly likes tall defenders, but he's also shown an affinity for his former Oregon players, so I wonder if he would pick Ifo Ekpre-Olomu. I say he would, as his former corner would fill a huge need in a shaky secondary that looked inept trying to stop Dez Bryant on Sunday night.

    Note: Ifo Ekpre-Olomu suffered a torn ACL. I will drop him into Round 3 in the next update.

  5. New Orleans Saints: Vic Beasley, DE/OLB, Clemson
    The Saints got rid of Victor Butler, so they definitely need to work on finding an upgrade across from Junior Galette. Anyone who can tackle would fit in well, as their putrid defense couldn't even stop Andy Dalton.

    Pick change; previously Dante Fowler, DE/OLB

  6. Pittsburgh Steelers: Trae Waynes, CB, Michigan 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 definitely getting one of the better players available.

  7. Baltimore Ravens: Shilique Calhoun, DE/OLB, Michigan State
    The Ravens could look at the rush linebacker position. Pernell McPhee has been great in a rotation with Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil this year, but he'll be a free agent this offseason. Suggs and Dumervil will be 33 and 31 next year, respectively.

    Pick change; previously Ronald Darby, CB

  8. Dallas Cowboys: Eli Harold, DE, Virginia
    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. That has to change. Several upgrades can be obtained on the defensive line.

    Pick change; previously Eddie Goldman, DT

  9. Cincinnati Bengals: Eric Kendricks, ILB, UCLA
    The Bengals are very weak in their linebacking corps, as Rey Maualuga, Emmanuel Lamur and Vincent Rey have all struggled alongside/without Vontaze Burfict this season.

  10. Indianapolis Colts: Markus Golden, DE/OLB, Missouri
    The Colts have been putting some pressure on the quarterback this year (with some exceptions), thanks to Bjoern Werner emerging, but they could still use another top-notch pass-rusher, as Robert Mathis won't be around much longer.

    Pick change; previously Shilique Calhoun, DE/OLB

  11. Detroit Lions: Todd Gurley, RB, Georgia
    I was wondering where to put Todd Gurley, and I think this is a good spot. The Lions have taken the top player on their draft board before, and they could use some help at running back with Reggie Bush being phased out. Gurley provides major value here, as he was a top-10 prospect prior to his ACL tear.

  12. 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.

  13. Green Bay Packers: Kevin Johnson, CB, Wake Forest
    The Packers can take one of the better prospects available at this juncture, and that might be Kevin Johnson. The cornerback position will have to be addressed, as Matt Ryan exposed the group on Monday night. A couple of players at that position, including Tramon Williams, will be hitting free agency in March.

  14. Denver Broncos: Cedric Ogbuhei, OT, Texas A&M
    The Broncos have some issues on their offensive line that they need to address. That could be their downfall in the playoffs.

  15. Seattle Seahawks: Alvin Dupree, DE, Kentucky
    There are a number of reasons why the Seahakws underachieved this year until recently. One was a lacking pass rush. It'll only get worse in the offseason when Cliff Avril hits free agency. Alvin Dupree, who has been a monster this season, fits what Seattle looks for from an athleticism standpoint.

  16. New England Patriots: Cameron Erving, OT/G/C, Florida State
    Bill Belichick loves versatile offensive linemen, so he may fall in love with Cameron Erving, who can play all five positions up front. Erving has been stellar at center for Florida State, moving over from the tackle spot.
