*** 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. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Owamagbe Odighizuwa, DE, UCLA
    Gerald McCoy is the only Buccaneer who put consistent pressure on opposing quarterbacks. That needs to change, especially considering the other quarterbacks in the division.

  2. Tennessee Titans: Hauoli Kikaha, DE/OLB, Washington
    The Titans have to find tons of defensive help. One major need in particular is a pass-rushing upgrade because Kamerion Wimbley is not getting the job done.

  3. Jacksonville Jaguars: Cedric Ogbuhei, OT, Texas A&M
    Blake Bortles was terrible as a rookie, but perhaps he’ll stop throwing tons of interceptions if he has better protection. The Jaguars need to improve their right tackle situation.

    Cedric Ogbuhei falls to the third round because he tore his ACL. He was a late-first, early-second-round prospect to begin with.

  4. Oakland Raiders: Gerod Holliman, S, Louisville
    Charles Woodson said he’s coming back next year, but his play slipped late in 2014. A long-term solution is needed at one of the safety positions.



  5. Washington Redskins: Jaquiski Tartt, S, Samford
    The issues the Redskins have in their secondary are pretty well documented. They were counting on Ryan Clark this past year, which proved to be disastrous because the former Steeler is way past his prime.

    Pick change; previously Durell Eskridge, S

  6. New York Jets: Duke Johnson, RB, Miami
    Chris Johnson is a free agent after the Jets declined his option. Not like he was going to play much anyway if he returned. The Jets may want to bring in another running back to go with Chris Ivory.

    Pick change; previously Alex Carter, CB

  7. Chicago Bears: Tre Jackson, G, Florida State
    Jay Cutler played like trash last year, but it didn’t help that his offensive line frequently broke down and didn’t give him much time to throw. The Bears will have to endure Cutler’s lethargy again next season, so they can at least improve his blocking.

    Pick change; previously Jalen Collins, CB

  8. St. Louis Rams: Hroniss Grasu, C, Oregon
    Another offensive line upgrade for the Rams. They really need help at center.

  9. Atlanta Falcons: Nick O’Leary, TE, Florida State
    The Falcons missed Tony Gonzalez this year. It would’ve helped Matt Ryan if he had a solid intermediate target to throw to.

  10. New York Giants: Durell Eskridge, S, Syracuse
    New York’s top three safeties all have expiring contracts. Antrel Rolle was coming off a down year, anyway.

    Pick change; previously Duke Johnson, RB

  11. New Orleans Saints: Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, CB, Oregon
    Another cornerback is definitely a possibility. The team desperately has to upgrade its pass defense, so it shouldn’t surprise anyone if the Saints double up on corners.

  12. Minnesota Vikings: Shaquille Mason, G, Georgia Tech
    Matt Kalil was awful last year, but he at least was dealing with an injury. Charlie Johnson had no excuse, as he also struggled at the left guard spot. He’ll need to be upgraded.

    Pick change; previously Steve Nelson, CB



  13. Cleveland Browns: Nelson Agholor, WR, USC
    Considering the state of the Browns’ receiving corps, I could see them doubling up on the position this April.

    Pick change; previously Ty Montgomery, WR

  14. Miami Dolphins: Chris Hackett, S, TCU
    Louis Delmas, who will be hitting the market in March, tore his ACL. An early draft choice has to be used to find someone who can play next to Reshad Jones.

    Pick change; previously Laken Tomlinson, G

  15. San Francisco 49ers: Justin Hardy, WR, East Carolina
    The 49ers could easily double up on receivers early on, as they have a major need at the position.

    Pick change; previously Ben Koyack, TE

  16. Kansas City Chiefs: Anthony Harris, S, Virginia
    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.

    Pick change; previously Justin Hardy, WR



  17. Buffalo Bills: Jay Ajayi, RB, Boise State
    The Bills may want to look into addressing the running back position, which is what I have happening in my 2016 NFL Mock Draft. Fred Jackson is done, C.J. Spiller is finished in Buffalo, and Bryce Brown has not lived up to expectations.

    Pick change; previously Chris Hackett, S

  18. Houston Texans: Corey Robinson, OT, South Carolina
    The Texans want to upgrade the right tackle position, as Derek Newton has not been getting the job done.

  19. San Diego Chargers: Tyler Lockett, WR, Kansas State
    The Chargers could use some help at receiver, as Malcom Floyd will be 34 next season, while Eddie Royal is an impending free agent.

  20. Philadelphia Eagles: Jake Fisher, OT, Oregon
    Another Oregon player for Chip Kelly. This one can upgrade Todd Herremans at right guard and then move to tackle once Jason Peters retires.



  21. Cincinnati Bengals: Steve Nelson, CB, Oregon State
    The Bengals will be interested in some cornerback depth with Terence Newman on his way out.

    Pick change; previously Lorenzo Mauldin, DE/OLB

  22. Arizona Cardinals: Mike Davis, RB, South Carolina
    Andre Ellington can’t carry the load by himself, and the Cardinals need a new No. 2 running back anyway.

  23. Pittsburgh Steelers: Danielle Hunter, DE/OLB, LSU
    The Steelers hate drafting edge rushers early on because of scheme transition issues, but they really need to upgrade their pass rush. It was better at the end of the season, but Pittsburgh can’t count on James Harrison playing well forever.

    Pick change; previously Trey Flowers, DE/OLB

  24. Detroit Lions: Sean Hickey, OT/G, Syracuse
    Detroit absolutely has to fix its pass protection, and its biggest problem is at right tackle. LaAdrian Waddle, who is just a marginal talent, was banged up often last year.

    Pick change; previously Jay Ajayi, RB



  25. Carolina Panthers: Buck Allen, RB, USC
    Jonathan Stewart finished the year on a strong note, but the Panthers can’t depend on him because he’s so frequently banged up. With DeAngelo Williams on his way out, Carolina will have to add another running back.

    Pick change; previously Josh Harper, WR

  26. Baltimore Ravens: Ty Montgomery, WR, Stanford
    Steve Smith looked done in 2013, but he actually tried this past season, and it paid off for Baltimore. However, Steve Smith won’t last much longer, while Torrey Smith is an impending free agent, so the Ravens will have to find a new receiver.

    Pick change; previously Buck Allen, RB

  27. Dallas Cowboys: Gabe Wright, DT, Auburn
    Dallas’ defense was much better than anyone anticipated, but it was exposed during a stretch during the latter part of the season. There are still some weaknesses that need to be addressed – particularly in the interior of the defensive line, where Nick Hayden needs to be upgraded.

  28. Denver Broncos: Reese Dismukes, C, Auburn
    Another offensive line upgrade for the Broncos, as they need to make sure Peyton Manning and his decaying arm are well protected next year.

    Pick change; previously Shaquille Mason, G

  29. Indianapolis Colts: Derron Smith, S, Fresno State
    The Colts may want to add safety depth in the middle of the draft because of some expiring contracts, perhaps selecting a player who will be able to start there in a couple of years.

  30. Green Bay Packers: Jacoby Glenn, CB, Central Florida
    The Packers have three key cornerbacks hitting free agency by next March. They’ll have to replenish depth at the position and find a future starter.

  31. Seattle Seahawks: Christian Covington, DT, Rice
    The Seahawks were really missing Brandon Mebane. They need some help at defensive tackle, even once Mebane returns from his hamstring injury next year.

    Pick change; previously Danielle Hunter, DE/OLB

  32. New England Patriots: D.J. Humphries, OT/G, Florida
    Bill Belichick loves versatile offensive linemen, and he’s definitely not opposed to taking players from Florida, so this selection makes a ton of sense. Belichick could spend multiple picks to fortify his front line.
