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

Last update: Thursday, April 17, 2014. Major changes.
Next update: Next week. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

The order of this 2015 NFL Mock Draft is somewhat random.

    *** THIS IS A LIVE 2015 NFL MOCK DRAFT. PICKS ARE BEING POSTED NOW. TO SEE PREVIOUS VERSIONS, CHECK OUT THE ARCHIVED 2015 NFL MOCK DRAFT SECTION. FOLLOW @walterfootball FOR UPDATES ***

  1. Cincinnati Bengals: Cameron Erving, OT, Florida State
    2014 NFL Mock Draft selection: Darqueze Dennard, CB

    The Bengals lost Anthony Collins to the Buccaneers in free agency. They can just slide Andrew Whitworth to left tackle, but that's not going to be an option for long, given that he turns 33 in December.

    Follow @walterfootball for updates.

  2. Tennessee Titans: Bryce Petty, QB, Baylor
    2014 NFL Mock Draft selection: Justin Gilbert, CB

    The Titans will give Jake Locker another year. 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.

  3. St. Louis Rams: Brandon Scherff, OT, Iowa
    2014 NFL Mock Draft selection: Khalil Mack, DE/OLB and Bradley Roby, CB

    Despite popular belief, there's a chance the Rams won't spend one of their two first-round picks this May on an offensive tackle. If, however, Jake Long's comeback is unsuccessful, St. Louis may not have much of a choice the following spring.

  4. Atlanta Falcons: Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin
    2014 NFL Mock Draft selection: Greg Robinson, OT

    Steven Jackson was a disappointment last year. He was injured though, so he deserves a second chance. If he continues to struggle, however, the Falcons will look into upgrading the running back position during the following offseason, and they may just wait until the draft because it'll be packed with prospects at this position.



  5. Baltimore Ravens: T.J. Yeldon, RB, Alabama
    2014 NFL Mock Draft selection: Calvin Pryor, S

    The Ravens could be another team in the market for a running back. Ray Rice may not be around much longer because of off-the-field issues, so the 2014 season is a big one for Bernard Pierce. If he averages something close to 2.9 yards per carry again, Baltimore will need an upgrade.

  6. Philadelphia Eagles: Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, CB, Oregon
    2014 NFL Mock Draft selection: Brandin Cooks, WR

    There's a chance the Eagles will draft Kyle Fuller with the No. 22 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. If they opt to go in a different direction, perhaps they'll try another corner with the 22nd selection the following spring.

  7. Arizona Cardinals: Brett Hundley, QB, UCLA
    2014 NFL Mock Draft selection: Kony Ealy, DE/OLB

    The Cardinals aren't expected to pick a quarterback early this May, but that may change next year. Carson Palmer will be a 35-year-old entering his contract season when the 2015 NFL Draft rolls around. If he doesn't lead Arizona into the playoffs in 2014, Arizona may just dump him to avoid paying him $10 million. Even if he stays on, a signal-caller will be in play.

  8. Chicago Bears: Jalen Collins, CB, LSU
    2014 NFL Mock Draft selection: Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, S

    The Bears need help all over their defense, including the cornerback position. Charles Tillman has been re-signed, but only to a 1-year deal, so a new starter will be needed across from Tim Jennings.



  9. Indianapolis Colts: La'El Collins, OT/G, LSU
    2014 NFL Mock Draft selection: None

    The Colts added some defensive players this offseason, but their top priority remains shielding Andrew Luck from opposing pass rushes. They have sketchy interior protection, so La'El Collins could start at guard and eventually work his way to one of the tackle positions.

  10. San Diego Chargers: Trae Waynes, CB, Michigan State
    2014 NFL Mock Draft selection: Louis Nix, NT

    The Chargers have major issues at cornerback right now, so there's a good chance they'll address the position with one of their first two picks. I actually don't have that happening, however - they choose a nose tackle and a rush linebacker in my mock, which is also plausible - and thar would put the corner position at the top of their needs list once again the following offseason.

  11. Green Bay Packers: Vic Beasley, DE/OLB, Clemson
    2014 NFL Mock Draft selection: C.J. Mosley, ILB

    Julius Peppers signed on for what essentially is a 1-year pact, so if he's not retained next season and Nick Perry doesn't emerge as a consistent pass-rusher, the Packers could target someone to play across from Clay Matthews early in the 2015 NFL Draft.

  12. New Orleans Saints: Jabari Hunt-Days, ILB, Georgia Tech
    2014 NFL Mock Draft selection: Dee Ford, DE/OLB

    David Hawthorne hasn't played well for the Saints. If that trend continues, New Orleans may not wish to pay the $2.5 million roster bonus that he's due in 2015. An inside linebacker will be an option in that case.



  13. New England Patriots: Hroniss Grasu, C, Oregon
    2014 NFL Mock Draft selection: Ra'Shede Hageman, DE/DT

    The Patriots are hurting at center. Ryan Wendell was awful this past season. He was retained, but he'll only be a backup.

  14. Seattle Seahawks: Noah Spence, DE, Ohio State
    2014 NFL Mock Draft selection: Joel Bitonio, OT/G/C

    The Seahawks might have the defensive end position at the top of their needs list entering the 2015 offseason. Chris Clemons is gone, while Cliff Avril will be an impending free agent.

  15. Denver Broncos: Cedric Reed, DE, Texas
    2014 NFL Mock Draft selection: Ryan Shazier, LB

    The Broncos signed DeMarcus Ware this offseason, but they'll be able to afford him for a couple of seasons. Once Peyton Manning leaves, Denver will have to start over everywhere, and that includes the defensive end position. They might as well have a capable pass-rusher waiting in the wings.

  16. San Francisco 49ers: Alex Carter, CB, Stanford
    2014 NFL Mock Draft selection: Kelvin Benjamin, WR

    The 49ers lost Tarell Brown and Carlos Rogers in free agency this offseason, so there's a big need at the cornerback position.
