Charlie Campbell's 2015 NFL Mock Draft: Round 1, Picks 1-16

  1. Arizona Cardinals: Shilique Calhoun, DE, Michigan State
    The Cardinals need to upgrade their edge rushers, plus John Abraham is nearing the end of a great career.

    Calhoun is one of the top players on Michigan State's superb defense. In 2013, he had 37 tackles with 14 tackles for a loss, 7.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and an interception. The 6-foot-4, 257-pounder needs to add some weight for the NFL if he's going to remain a defensive end, but he's young and has plenty of time to do it. Calhoun should be even better as a junior in 2014 after a year of playing experience and developing his body in the offseason.

    Pick change; previously Devonte Fields, OLB

  2. San Diego Chargers: Vic Beasley, OLB, Clemson
    The Chargers need more edge-rushing talent. Melvin Ingram, Jeremiah Attaochu and Vic Beasley could form a nice trio - assuming Ingram and Attaochu pan out.

    Beasley was a tremendous pass-rusher for Clemson in 2013 with 13 sacks. He also picked up 23 tackles for a loss, 41 tackles, six passes batted, four forced fumbles and a fumble recovery for a touchdown. After dominating the early part of 2013, Beasley was clamped down by Florida State as the Seminoles blew out Clemson. In 2012, he had 14 tackles with eight sacks and a forced fumble.

    The 6-foot-2 Beasley weighs in the 230s. The junior is strong for his weight, but he is still very undersized for the NFL and that could cause him to slide some on draft day. There is no doubt that he won't be able to stay at defensive end. Beasley could play in a 3-4 defense and be moved around. His best fit may come as an outside linebacker in a 4-3 and play in a similar style to Broncos linebacker Von Miller.

    Pick change; previously Ty Montgomery, WR

  3. St. Louis Rams: Cody Prewitt, S, Ole Miss
    I can't believe the Rams didn't bring in a new starting safety to pair with T.J. McDonald this offseason. That looks like a glaring weakness that St. Louis will have to fix.

    Prewitt had an excellent 2013 season and was a First-Team All-American selection by some media outlets. The SEC coaches made him a First-Team all-conference selection. The junior totaled 71 tackles with six interceptions, seven passes broken up and two forced fumbles. He had a big time presence for the Rebels. Prewitt (6-2, 212) has good size and showed improved instincts and ball skills from his first season as a starter.

    In 2012, Prewitt had 80 tackles with two picks, four passes batted and two forced fumbles as a sophomore. If the senior's play in 2014 is consistent with his 2013 performance, he could be a Thursday night pick.

    Pick change; previously KeiVarae Russell, CB

  4. Atlanta Falcons: Cedric Reed, DE, Texas
    Atlanta has strengthened its defensive line with bigger and more physical players, but the Falcons still need to improve their edge rushers.

    After being a backup to Alex Okafor and Jackson Jeffcoat, Reed had a breakout 2013 season with Okafor in the NFL. Reed totaled 10 sacks, 68 tackles, 17.5 tackles for a loss, four passes batted and five forced fumbles for the year. The 6-foot-6, 271-pounder has size and could be a 4-3 base end.

  5. Cincinnati Bengals: Cameron Erving, OT, Florida State
    After losing Anthony Collins in free agency, the Bengals could use a young tackle to protect Andy Dalton and open up holes for their talented young running backs.

    Erving played excellently for the Seminoles in 2013. He did a great job against Clemson's Vic Beasley and was superb at protecting Jameis Winston. Erving also opened up a lot of holes in the ground game. He finished the season with a solid performance against Auburn in the BCS title game.

    The 6-foot-6, 310-pounder has a lot of athletic ability. He missed the 2010 season with a back injury. Erving then played defensive tackle in 2011 as a redshirt freshman backup to Everett Dawkins. The Seminoles moved Erving to left tackle for 2012, and the sophomore ended up starting 14 games there. Erving has a lot of upside for the NFL.

  6. Washington Redskins: Landon Collins, S, Alabama
    The Redskins have to hope that Philip Thomas can finally stay healthy or Bacarri Rambo improves in Year 2. Ryan Clark and Brandon Meriweather aren't long-term starters for Washington.

    The Crimson Tide has been a talent factory for defensive backs for the NFL, and Collins is the program's 2015 model. He had 70 tackles with four tackles for a loss, six passes broken up, one interception and two forced fumbles in 2013. Collins (6-0, 215) was a real play-maker for Alabama down the stretch after an injury to Vinnie Sunseri gave Collins more playing time. He could be even better in 2014 having gained some experience.

    Pick change; previously Cody Prewitt, S

  7. Tennessee Titans: Dante Fowler, DE, Florida
    The Titans grab a piece for their 3-4 defense.

    Fowler was excellent for the Gators in 2013. He showed his special ability with a sack-fumble against Tennessee left tackle Antonio Richardson. Fowler racked up 50 tackles with 10.5 tackles for a loss, 3.5 sacks, one pass batted and three forced fumbles for the season. The 6-foot-3, 277-pounder is fast and powerful. He has a lot of upside, and it wouldn't be surprising if he dominates in 2014.

    Fowler was a First-Team All-SEC Freshman-Team selection in 2012 even though he was a backup. Fowler recorded 47 tackles with 10.5 tackles for a loss and 3.5 sacks that year. He was previously one of the top recruits in the nation and could be poised for a huge junior season in 2014.

  8. New Orleans Saints: Mike Davis, RB, South Carolina
    Mark Ingram has been a bust and could easily be allowed to leave in free agency after the 2014 season. Meanwhile, Darren Sproles is gone, while Pierre Thomas turns 30 later this year. New Orleans will need a long-term running back to help Drew Brees.

    Davis was a physical beast for South Carolina in 2013. Even with teams selling out to stop him, he ran over defenders on a weekly basis. Davis averaged 5.8 yards per carry with 1,183 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also had 34 receptions for 352 yard. As a freshman in 2012, Davis averaged 5.3 yards per carry for 275 yards and two touchdowns.

    The 5-foot-9, 215-pounder has some surprising explosion. He also runs with excellent pad level, vision and balance. Sources with NFL teams have already told me they think Davis could be worthy of a first-round pick.

    Pick change; previously Melvin Gordon, RB

  9. Chicago Bears: Devonte Fields, OLB/DE, TCU
    This looks like it will be the final season for Lance Briggs in Chicago. D.J. Williams is also near the end of his career. Getting a play-making outside linebacker to pair with Jon Bostic makes sense for the Bears.

    Fields was suspended for the 2013 opener against LSU. The sophomore injured his foot after only playing in two games and needed season-ending surgery. He recorded four tackles with two tackles for a loss for his year.

    Fields took the Big XII by storm in 2012 as a First-Team All-Big XII pick and the Big XII Freshman of the Year. He also was voted as the best defensive player in the conference by the media. Fields broke out with 10 sacks, 53 tackles, 18.5 tackles for a loss, four passes batted, two forced fumbles and an interception. The speedy 6-foot-4, 240-pounder should get bigger as he matures.

    Pick change; previously Eric Striker, OLB

  10. Denver Broncos: Ray Drew, DE, Georgia
    The Broncos made a nice short-term signing in DeMarcus Ware, but in the long run, they'll need another edge defender to pair with Von Miller.

    In 2013, Drew had 43 tackles, six sacks and eight tackles for a loss. He was very good for Georgia. Drew beat Tennessee's solid left tackle Antonio Richardson for a sack.

    Drew could play as a 3-4 defensive end who rushes from the inside in the sub package. In a 4-3 defense, the 6-foot-5, 276-pounder could play end on run downs and rush from the inside in passing situations. If Drew maintains his level of play, he'll skyrocket up draft boards.

  11. Baltimore Ravens: Dorial Green-Beckham, WR, Oklahoma
    The Ravens could use a receiver to replace Steve Smith and pair with Torrey Smith in the long term.

    Green-Beckham has an immense skill set with upside to develop, but he damaged his shot at being a high first-round pick by getting kicked off the Missouri team after multiple arrests with some substance issues. The Oklahoma Sooners brought Green-Beckham into their program and are petitioning the NCAA to let Green-Beckham play for them in 2014.

    Green-Beckham (6-6, 225) was formerly one of the top recruits in the nation and has often been compared to Bengals stud receiver A.J. Green. Playing for Missouri, Green-Beckham had 28 receptions for 395 yards and five touchdowns as a freshman in 2012. He looked like he was just scratching the surface of his talent.

    In 2013, Green-Beckham totaled 59 receptions for 883 yards with 12 touchdowns. He finished the 2013 regular season strongly with impressive performances against Texas A&M (7-93-1) and Auburn (6-144-2).

    Pick change; previously Mike Davis, RB

  12. Seattle Seahawks: Jaelen Strong, WR, Arizona State
    Sidney Rice is always hurt, and the Seahawks could use a big receiver to pair with Percy Harvin and Paul Richardson.

    Strong was a beast for Arizona State in 2013 - his first season of playing time. He had six 100-yard games in a season that was highlighted by a 12-reception, 168-yard performance against Stanford. In 2013, Strong amassed 75 receptions for 1,122 yards with seven scores while playing injured. The 6-foot-4, 205-pounder has speed to go with his excellent size.

    Pick change; previously Brandon Scherff, OT

  13. Indianapolis Colts: Jalen Mills, CB, LSU
    The Colts have Greg Toler starting on the other side from Vontae Davis, so obviously Indianapolis needs a long-term starter to pair with Davis.

    Mills had 67 tackles, three passes broken up, three sacks and three interceptions in 2013. The 6-foot, 185-pounder flashed some serious potential in 2012 when he was named a First-Team Freshman All-American by numerous media outlets. Mills won a starting job opposite Tharold Simon and was impressive in SEC action. Mills contributed 57 tackles, two interceptions and five passes broken up that year.

    Mills is currently suspended indefinitely for punching a woman. He claims another woman hit her. If Mills is suspended for a long stretch of games, his stock will probably slide to Day 2. Otherwise, he could rise up boards in 2014.

  14. Green Bay Packers: Denzel Perryman, ILB, Miami
    Green Bay is weak at inside linebacker. A.J. Hawk is declining and Brad Smith isn't much better. I think Carl Bradford was a great pick in the 2014 NFL Draft and could develop into a nice player, but the Packers need a difference-maker at linebacker to mess with Colin Kaepernick in January.

    Perryman (6-0, 243) is a quick and physical linebacker. He was excellent for the Hurricanes in the early going of 2013. Perryman had a monstrous game against Florida with 14 tackles and a forced fumble. The junior totaled 108 tackles with five tackles for a loss, one sack and three passes broken up for the year. He recorded 11 tackles against Florida State and 15 against Virginia Tech. Perryman notched 64 tackles with six tackles for a loss, two passes broken up, one forced fumble and an interception returned 41 yards for a touchdown in 2012.

    Not only is Perryman strong against the run, but he has shown well in pass coverage. Perryman covers a lot of ground and does a nice job of covering receivers who come into his zone. He looks like he has three-down ability for the NFL.

  15. New England Patriots: Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin
    The Patriots let LeGarrette Blount leave in free agency and have their current backs approaching free agency. The fumble-prone Stevan Ridley is among those approaching free agency, and he and the organization haven't discussed an extension. Meanwhile, James White will be just a situational backup in the NFL. New England could use a power back to make Tom Brady's job easier.

    Gordon was one of the most explosive backs in the nation in 2013. The lightning-fast redshirt sophomore brought an explosive element to the Badgers' backfield that Montee Ball never provided during his great college career. For the year, Gordon averaged 7.8 yards per carry for 1,609 yards on only 206 carries and 12 touchdowns. He has a rare combination of being fast while having quality size. The 6-foot-1, 203-pounder has blazing speed to be a threat to score on any carry.

    The Kenosha, Wisconsin product stood out while backing up Montee Ball and James White in 2012. While Gordon didn't get a lot of opportunities, he made the most of his limited chances while averaging 10 yards per carry. Gordon ran for 621 yards and three touchdowns on only 62 carries.

    Pick change; previously Jaelen Strong, WR

  16. San Francisco 49ers: Alex Carter, CB, Stanford
    San Francisco could be looking for cornerback help, as there are question marks around the quality of starting tandem Tramaine Brock and Chris Culliver. Jimmie Ward can play nickel corner along with safety, but in the long term, the 49ers may need to draft some starters on the outside.

    Carter (6-0, 200) played well for the Cardinal in 2013. The sophomore showed the ability to execute man and zone coverage. He totaled 59 tackles with eight passes broken up and an interception for the year. Carter took over a starting role in 2012. The freshman recorded 46 tackles with three forced fumbles in eight starts. Carter also has some physicality to him.
