  1. Minnesota Vikings: Tyeler Davison, DT, Fresno State
    The Vikings could stand to add some depth on their defensive line in the middle rounds.

    Follow @walterfootball for updates.

    Pick change; previously Mark Glowinski, G

  2. Tennessee Titans: Zach Hodges, DE/OLB, Harvard
    The Titans managed to sign Brian Orakpo, but they could stand to add another edge rusher, especially considering how fragile Orakpo has been in recent years.

  3. Jacksonville Jaguars: Martrell Spaight, OLB, Arkansas
    The Jaguars could stand to bolster their linebacking corps. They signed Dan Skuta, but he won’t be enough.

  4. Oakland Raiders: Senquez Golson, CB, Ole Miss
    The Raiders had a couple of cornerbacks hit free agency, so they could use some depth at the position.



  5. Washington Redskins: Ty Sambrailo, OT, Colorado State
    The Redskins can’t go too deep into the draft without addressing their anemic offensive front. They have to make sure Robert Griffin stays healthy for a change.

  6. Chicago Bears: Corey Robinson, OT, South Carolina
    The Bears haven’t touched their offensive line yet in this mock draft, but they definitely need to find multiple upgrades up front, including right tackle.

    Pick change; previously Tyeler Davison, NT

  7. Denver Broncos: Jamil Douglas, G, Arizona State
    The Broncos lost Orlando Franklin to the rival Chargers this offseason, so they’ll need to address the offensive line at some point during the 2015 NFL Draft.

  8. New York Giants: Deontay Greenberry, WR, Houston
    Victor Cruz is coming off a brutal knee injury and may never be the same again. The Giants will probably take a receiver at some point as a consequence.

  9. Philadelphia Eagles: Tony Washington, DE/OLB, Oregon
    Chip Kelly would probably have a nervous breakdown if he didn’t draft an Oregon player at some point. He needs an edge rusher after losing Trent Cole, so why not Tony Washington?

  10. Atlanta Falcons: Jarvis Harrison, G, Texas A&M
    The Falcons have to add an interior offensive lineman at some point in the wake of losing Justin Blalock this offseason.

  11. Cleveland Browns: Jake Ryan, LB, Michigan
    The Browns can add an inside linebacker to go along with the beautiful new logo they’ve introduced. They’ll need a future starter at the position with Karlos Dansby turning 34 in the middle of the 2015 season.

  12. New Orleans Saints: Danielle Hunter, DE/OLB, LSU
    The Saints spent the No. 13 pick on Shane Ray in this mock draft, but they could still target another rush linebacker in the middle rounds, given their dire need at the position.



  13. Miami Dolphins: Rakeem Nunez-Roches, DT, Southern Miss
    The Dolphins signed Ndamukong Suh, but lost Randy Starks and Jared Odrick, so they could stand to add a defensive tackle.

  14. Miami Dolphins: Reese Dismukes, C, Auburn
    The center position has to be upgraded. Samson Satele did not play well at all last year.

  15. San Francisco 49ers: Mike Hull, ILB, Penn State
    The 49ers are both inept and unfortunate. They said goodbye to Patrick Willis and Chris Borland this offseason, and now they have to find another inside linebacker to go along with the injured NaVorro Bowman.

  16. Houston Texans: Kurtis Drummond, S, Michigan State
    The Texans signed Rahim Moore this offseason, but they could still use a mid-round pick on the safety position, just in case D.J. Swearinger continues to struggle.



  17. San Diego Chargers: Chris Hackett, S, TCU
    Eric Weddle is heading into the final year of his contract, so the Chargers may want to add some insurance in the middle rounds.

  18. New Orleans Saints: Sean Hickey, OT/G, Syracuse
    The Saints currently don’t have two legitimate starting guards. This obviously has to be addressed.

    Pick change; previously Cam Thomas, CB

  19. Buffalo Bills: John Miller, G, Louisville
    The Bills have a shaky guard situation with the pedestrian Chris Williams and troubled Richie Incognito slated to start on the interior.

  20. Philadelphia Eagles: Troy Hill, CB, Oregon
    Another Oregon player so Chip Kelly can be happy. The Eagles could easily spend multiple picks on cornerbacks.



  21. Cincinnati Bengals: Blake Bell, TE, Oklahoma
    Jermaine Gresham is a free agent, so the Bengals may want to add another tight end.

  22. Baltimore Ravens: Ray Drew, DE/DT, Georgia
    The Ravens could stand to add another defensive lineman. They lost Haloti Ngata and won’t have Chris Canty that much longer.

  23. Arizona Cardinals: Taiwan Jones, LB, Michigan State
    The Cardinals have had major issues covering tight ends the past two years. The main problem in this regard this past season was the inside linebacker position. Karlos Dansby and Daryl Washington were both missed. Sean Weatherspoon signed with Arizona, but he can’t be counted on to stay healthy.

  24. Pittsburgh Steelers: Jesse James, TE, Penn State
    The Steelers could be in the market for a successor at tight end. Heath Miller turns 33 in October and has just two more years left on his contract.



  25. Carolina Panthers: Kenny Bell, WR, Nebraska
    The Panthers could obviously address the receiver position much earlier than this, given the need. However, their current front office won’t reach just to address a hole.

    Pick change; previously Troy Hill, CB

  26. Detroit Lions: Randall Evans, CB, Kansas State
    The Lions will consider adding a cornerback in the middle rounds for depth purposes. Besides, Rashean Mathis won’t be on the team much longer.

  27. Dallas Cowboys: Laurence Gibson, OT, Virginia Tech
    A mid-round offensive tackle is definitely a possibility for Dallas in the wake of losing Jermey Parnell to the Jaguars in free agency.

  28. Denver Broncos: Jalston Fowler, FB, Alabama
    The Broncos are looking to bring in a new fullback this offseason. They have two fifth-round selections, so perhaps they’ll use one on a lead blocker.

  29. Indianapolis Colts: David Cobb, RB, Minnesota
    The Colts signed Frank Gore – check out my grade in the NFL Free Agent Signing Grades page – but he’s just a short-term solution. A long-term option is needed.

  30. Green Bay Packers: Geneo Grissom, DE/OLB, Oklahoma
    Julius Peppers was a great addition to the Packers, but a long-term backup is needed behind Clay Matthews and Nick Perry is needed once Peppers moves on.

  31. Seattle Seahawks: Justin Cox, CB, Mississippi State
    Byron Maxwell signed with the Eagles, while Tharold Simon was atrocious in the Super Bowl when he had to replace Jeremy Lane.

  32. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Kevin White, CB, TCU
    The Buccaneers may target a cornerback earlier than this. They could use some competition for Johnthan Banks.

  33. Carolina Panthers: Jeff Heuerman, TE, Ohio State
    The Panthers could use some depth at tight end behind Greg Olsen. They tried Ed Dickson last year, but he struggled.

  34. Seattle Seahawks: Chris Conley, WR, Georgia
    The Seahawks traded for Jimmy Graham, but they could still stand to add another play-maker, as their receiving corps doesn’t have much talent.

  35. Baltimore Ravens: Darren Waller, WR, Georgia Tech
    Considering the state of Baltimore’s receiving corps, the team could look to add multiple wideouts in the 2015 NFL Draft.

  36. Kansas City Chiefs: B.J. Finney, C, Kansas State
    Here’s a potential replacement for Rodney Hudson, who signed with the Raiders this offseason.

  37. Kansas City Chiefs: Brandon Bridge, QB, South Alabama
    The Chiefs could stand to add a young quarterback to groom behind Alex Smith.

  38. Carolina Panthers: Za’Darius Smith, DE/OLB, Kentucky
    With Greg Hardy gone, the Panthers might want to target a defensive end in the middle rounds for depth purposes.

  39. Houston Texans: Alani Fua, DE/OLB, BYU
    The Texans are optimistic about Jadeveon Clowney’s chances of returning to the field this season – I still support my NFL Game of Thrones comparison – but they may want to add an edge rusher as insurance.

  40. Baltimore Ravens: Shane Carden, QB, East Carolina
    The Ravens lost Tyrod Taylor this offseason, so they could add competition for the No. 2 quarterback position.
