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

  1. Arizona Cardinals: Vic Beasley, OLB, Clemson
    The Cardinals need to upgrade their edge rushers, plus John Abraham is nearing the end of a great career.

    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 senior 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 Shilique Calhoun, DE

  2. San Diego Chargers: KeiVarae Russell, CB, Notre Dame
    The Chargers need more than Jason Verrett at cornerback. Russell could form a nice tandem with him.

    Russell (5-11, 190) has some natural coverage ability and has been an excellent defender for the Irish the past two years. He is fast enough to maintain coverage with receivers in and out of their breaks, but also plays bigger than his listed size.

    Russell broke into the starting lineup as a freshman and helped the Irish reach the National Championship. In his debut season, he had 58 tackles with two interceptions and two passes broken up. Russell continued his strong play for the Irish in 2013. The sophomore totaled 51 tackles, one interception and eight passes broken up. Russell has the potential to be an early-round pick in his draft class.

    Pick change; previously Vic Beasley, OLB

  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.

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

    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.

    Pick change; previously Cedric Reed, DE

  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.

  7. Tennessee Titans: Devonte Fields, OLB/DE, TCU
    The Titans grab an edge rusher for their 3-4 defense.

    Currently, Fields is in limbo after being charged with misdemeanor assault. TCU has separated him from the program until the investigation is concluded. If Fields is cleared, the Horned Frogs could take him back.

    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.

    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.

    Pick change; previously Dante Fowler, DE

  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.

  9. Chicago Bears: Ray Drew, DE, Georgia
    Jared Allen was a nice short-term signing, but the Bears need to improve their defensive ends in the long term.

    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.

    Pick change; previously Devonte Fields, OLB

  10. Denver Broncos: Cedric Reed, DE, Texas
    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.

    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.

    Pick change; previously Ray Drew, DE

  11. Baltimore Ravens: T.J. Yeldon, RB, Alabama
    I'm going to steal this pick from Walt's mock. Ozzie Newsome needs a running back and loves Alabama. Yeldon is also a good fit for Gary Kubiak's offense.

    In 2013, Yeldon averaged six yards per carry for 1,235 yards with 14 touchdowns. He chipped in 18 catches for 160 yards, too. Yeldon received only 175 carries in 2012, but totaled 1,108 yards and 12 touchdowns. The freshman caught 11 passes for 131 yards and a score.

    While Eddie Lacy was a large downhill runner, Yeldon showed some explosiveness. He ripped off a number of big gains in 2012 with mismatch speed. Yeldon's first-step quickness didn't look as good in 2013 after he gained some muscle. Yeldon is now listed at 6-foot-2 and 218 pounds, but didn't look that heavy as a freshman.

    Pick change; previously Dorial Green-Beckham, WR

  12. Seattle Seahawks: Dorial Green-Beckham, WR, Oklahoma
    Sidney Rice retired, so the Seahawks could use a big receiver to pair with Percy Harvin and Paul Richardson.

    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 Jaelen Strong, WR

  13. Indianapolis Colts: Alex Carter, CB, Stanford
    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.

    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.

    Pick change; previously Jalen Mills, CB

  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.

  16. San Francisco 49ers: Jalen Mills, CB, LSU
    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.

    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.

    Pick change; previously Alex Carter, CB
