  1. Tennessee Titans: Ronald Darby, CB, Florida State
    Sources with the Titans told me they were considering Justin Gilbert and Kyle Fuller with their first-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, but Taylor Lewan was higher rated than either corner. Tennessee could still use cornerback help for Dick LeBeau’s defense.

    In 2014, Darby had 43 tackles with four passes broken up and was a solid contributor on special teams as well. He is a fast cover corner who is put together well. Darby is skilled at not allowing separation and running the routes with receivers, but he has to improve his ability to play the ball.

    Darby played well as a cover corner in the Seminoles’ secondary in 2013 following Xavier Rhodes’ departure to the NFL. Darby (5-11, 193) had four passes broken up and two interceptions that season. He impressed in 2012 with eight passes broken up, 22 tackles and a forced fumble. Darby has natural cover-corner skills.


  2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: T.J. Clemmings, OT, Pittsburgh
    With their first second-day pick, the Bucs should take the best offensive lineman available regardless of whether he is for the interior or the edge. Tampa Bay must improve its line for Jameis Winston.

    Clemmings (6-4, 307) played well for Pittsburgh in 2014. He’s a good athlete who can be a force as a run-blocker. Clemmings needs to improve his technique in pass protection as he can be slow to react to speed rushers. At the Senior Bowl, Clemmings struggled in the pass-blocking one-on-ones. Sources from multiple teams have said they’re grading Clemmings in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft, but think a team will take him in the second round. Another team said they graded him on Day 2, while an NFC team said they had a fourth-round grade on him.

    The need for Clemmings to develop is understandable as 2014 was only his second season playing on the offensive line. He was a defensive end to start out his collegiate career and moved to right tackle as a junior. He started 13 games at right tackle in 2013.


  3. Oakland Raiders: Jaelen Strong, WR, Arizona State
    The Raiders take advantage of the deep receiver class and add a weapon for Derek Carr.

    Strong (6-2, 217) has quickness to go with his excellent size. He recorded 82 receptions for 1,165 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2014. In three of his games, Strong totaled more than 140 yards receiving, plus he played well against Stanford while seeing bracket coverage.

    Strong is tremendous on back-shoulder receptions, which are a very popular route in NFL offenses these days. He is excellent at using his size/strength advantage to block out the defenders for completions.

    Strong was a beast for Arizona State in 2013 – his first season of playing time. He had six 100-yard games in a year 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.


  4. Jacksonville Jaguars: T.J. Yeldon, RB, Alabama
    The Jaguars need a feature back to lead their offense. Yeldon’s three-down skills should make him a good fit for Greg Olson’s system.

    Yeldon averaged five yards per carry in 2014 for 979 yards with 11 touchdowns. He also hauled in 15 receptions for 180 yards and a touchdown, too. Yeldon had ball-security issues in 2013, and while he was better as a junior, those haven’t gone away completely. Yeldon is a smooth runner who has quickness, balance, cutting ability and vision though.

    In 2013, Yeldon averaged six yards per carry for 1,235 yards with 14 touchdowns. The sophomore 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 speed. He ripped off a number of big gains in 2012. Yeldon’s first-step quickness didn’t look as good in 2013 and 2014 after he gained some muscle. Yeldon is now checking in at 6-foot-1 and 226 pounds. He should drop some weight to get back some of his speed.




  5. New York Jets: Jay Ajayi, RB, Boise State
    The Jets grab a running back to replace Chris Johnson.

    Ajayi is a versatile back who looks well suited for NFL offenses. The 6-foot, 221-pounder averaged 5.4 yards per carry in 2014 for 1,689 yards with 25 touchdowns. Through the air, he notched 45 receptions for 536 yards and four touchdowns. Ajayi has the speed to break off yards in chunks, plus is athletic and tough.

    Ajayi broke out for Boise State in 2013 as he averaged 5.7 yards per carry for 1,425 yards with 18 touchdowns. Ajayi also dragged down 22 receptions for 222 yards and a score. He ran for 548 yards and four scores as a freshman. Ajayi has some quickness to go along with quality size.


  6. Washington Redskins: Owamagbe Odighizuwa, DE, UCLA
    After losing Brian Orakpo, the Redskins need edge help on defense. Odighizuwa would provide Joe Barry with both a 4-3 defensive end and a 3-4 outside linebacker.

    Odighizuwa (6-3, 266) has a nice skill set of size, speed and athleticism. He recorded 61 tackles with 11.5 tackles for a loss, six sacks and five passes batted in 2014, but was phenomenal in many games and more disruptive than the numbers indicate. Odighizuwa played really well against Washington. He missed the 2013 season with an injury and was a backup in 2012. Odighizuwa had 44 tackles and a sack that year.


  7. Chicago Bears: Eli Harold, OLB/DE, Virginia
    The Bears need to improve their linebackers and pass rush. Chicago has shown interest in Harold.

    Harold was very impressive in 2014. He totaled 54 tackles with 14.5 tackles for a loss, seven sacks, a forced fumble, one interception and two passes batted. The junior had strong showings against UCLA, Louisville, North Carolina and Miami.

    Harold (6-3, 247) made a big impact as an edge rusher for Virginia in 2013. The first-year starter totaled 8.5 sacks with 15 tackles for a loss, 51 tackles, two forced fumbles and a pass broken up. His season was highlighted by a three-sack game against rival Virginia Tech. Harold is a fast and athletic edge rusher, but probably will have to move to 3-4 outside linebacker in the NFL unless he can add a significant amount of weight.

    Pick change; previously Bernardrick McKinney, ILB


  8. New York Giants: Sammie Coates, WR, Auburn
    New York could use some receiving depth with Victor Cruz coming off a nasty injury.

    Auburn struggled to pass the ball consistently in 2014, and Coates recorded only 34 receptions for 741 yards and four touchdowns on the season. He did light up Alabama (5-206) though. If Coates had played in a different offense, he easily would have produced a lot more. The 6-foot-1, 213-pounder is a play-maker who has the speed to stretch a defense vertically. At the Senior Bowl, he showed the potential to run some underneath routes and use his size to move the chains in the short to intermediate part of the field.

    Coates caught 42 passes in 2013 for 902 yards (22 average) with seven touchdowns. With defenses focused on stopping Auburn’s rushing attack, he made them pay downfield.

    Pick change; previously Damarious Randall, S


  9. St. Louis Rams: Dorial Green-Beckham, WR, Oklahoma
    The Rams grab a local product and a big receiver for Nick Foles.

    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 out of the Missouri Tigers program after multiple arrests with some substance issues and a domestic violence incident. The Oklahoma Sooners brought Green-Beckham into their program, but the NCAA wouldn’t let Green-Beckham play for them in 2014. Green-Beckham and his family decided that he should enter the 2015 NFL Draft.

    Green-Beckham (6-5, 237) 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).


  10. Atlanta Falcons: Shane Ray, OLB/DE, Missouri
    The Falcons continue to build up their edge defense for Dan Quinn. They’ve shown interest in Shane Ray and seem to like him even with the recent arrest.

    Ray totaled 14.5 sacks, 65 tackles, 22 tackles for a loss and three forced fumbles in 2014. He demonstrated a real burst off the snap with the agility to turn the corner. Ray needs to get stronger for the ground game, but he has rare speed-rushing skills and edge-rush athleticism. It will be interesting to see if Ray can add weight to play defensive end in the NFL, otherwise he’ll have to move to a Von Miller-type role in a 4-3 defense. Ray could also fit as a 3-4 outside linebacker.

    Ray (6-3, 245) contributed to Missouri’s fierce pass rush during the 2013 season as a backup. He recorded 39 tackles with nine tackles for a loss, 4.5 sacks and two forced fumbles for the year.


  11. Cleveland Browns: Donovan Smith, OT, Penn State
    Cleveland could use help on the right side of the line with a power blocker. Smith could start at right tackle or guard.

    Smith (6-6, 338) probably should have returned to school to improve his pass blocking before going pro, but he has some talent. Smith is a strong blocker in the run game and can move defenders to open up holes. He broke into the starting lineup in 2012 with nine games at left tackle. That season saw him named a Big Ten All-Freshman selection. Smith stayed at left tackle in 2013 and made 11 starts.


  12. New Orleans Saints: Maxx Williams, TE, Minnesota
    The Saints grab a tight end weapon to replace Jimmy Graham.

    The 6-foot-4, 250-pound Williams is a fast, athletic mismatch weapon. He was one of the best tight ends in college football in 2014 and could get some first-round consideration. The redshirt sophomore totaled 36 passes for 569 yards with eight touchdowns in 2014. As a freshman, he recorded 25 catches for 417 yards and five scores.

    Williams was capable of producing more for the Gophers, but they have a ground-based offense. He needs to improve his blocking for the NFL.




  13. Minnesota Vikings: Shaq Thompson, OLB, Washington
    Mike Zimmer loves drafting linebackers, and the Vikings have shown interest in Thompson.

    Thompson (6-0, 228) is an instinctive linebacker who has sideline-to-sideline speed. With Bishop Sankey in the NFL, Washington actually played Thompson at running back as well as linebacker. In 2014, Thompson totaled 81 tackles, two tackles for a loss, one sack, four passes broken up, one interception and three forced fumbles. He also averaged 7.5 yards per carry for 456 yards and two touchdowns. Thompson produced some clutch turnovers for the Huskies. For the NFL, he’s a defender.

    Thompson totaled 78 tackles with four tackles for a loss, four passes broken up and an interception in 2013. As a freshman the season before, he made an immediate impact with 74 tackles, three interceptions, two sacks and 8.5 tackles for a loss.


  14. San Francisco 49ers: Jalen Collins, CB, LSU
    The 49ers have a big need at cornerback, and Collins is a good fit for their defense. San Francisco has shown a lot of interest in him as well.

    Collins totaled 38 tackles, nine passes broken up and an interception in 2014. The 6-foot-1, 203-pounder is a long corner who has some athleticism and is fast. While Collins doesn’t always play up to his skill set, he showed his surprising speed when he chased down Melvin Gordon on a long run in the 2014 season opener. Big cornerbacks who can run like Collins are tough to find. However, he needs development in playing the ball and improving his ball skills.

    Collins was a 2012 Freshman All-SEC selection by the conference’s coaches. He totaled 30 tackles and two interceptions. As a sophomore, Collins started two games. He had 22 tackles with two passes broken up in 2013. Collins possesses the skill set to become a good starter. LSU has been a factory for elite defensive backs, so he had to earn his playing time.


  15. Miami Dolphins: Denzel Perryman, ILB, Miami
    The Dolphins could use help at linebacker and have shown lots of interest in Perryman.

    Perryman is a quick and physical linebacker. The 5-foot-11, 236-pounder provided a lot of good down-and-distance situations for his defense with his prowess to stop the run. Not only is Perryman strong against the run, but he can contribute in zone coverage. Some feel Perryman is limited in the passing game, but other sources think that criticism is unfounded. He looks like he could have three-down ability for the NFL with development. Perryman recorded 110 tackles with 9.5 tackles for a loss, three forced fumbles, five passes batted and an interception in 2014.

    Perryman was excellent for the Hurricanes in 2013. The junior totaled 108 tackles with five tackles for a loss, one sack and three passes broken up for the year. 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.

    Pick change; previously Devin Smith, WR


  16. San Diego Chargers: Mitch Morse, G/C, Missouri
    San Diego could use interior offensive line help. Morse played tackle in college, but every team is projecting him to guard or center in the NFL. He could finish off the Chargers’ offensive line at center with Chris Watt going back to guard.

    Morse (6-5, 305) was a starter at tackle for the Tigers, but for the NFL, he should kick inside to guard. Especially considering Morse has very short arms (32 1/4 inches). Moving to guard would help his pass protection. Morse may not have the skill set to develop into a difference-maker, but he could turn into a quality contributor up front.

    Pick change; previously Tevin Coleman, RB


  17. Kansas City Chiefs: La’el Collins, OT/G, LSU
    It is tough to project Collins given his participation in a murder investigation. If he isn’t cleared by the time of the 2015 NFL Draft, he could easily drop very far.

    The Chiefs’ offensive line really struggled in 2014, and their edge protection missed Brandon Albert. If Kansas City drafts a left tackle, the team could move Eric Fisher to the right side, and that could be a better fit for him.

    Collins was solid in 2014, but not as good as his junior year. He has some potential and flashed heavy hands, but needs to learn technique as he didn’t get a lot of movement in the ground game as a senior. For the NFL, Collins would probably be better at guard or right tackle – at least to start out his career – and then his team can see if he develops into a left tackle. Collins had a quality outing versus Florida and handled himself well going against Dante Fowler, but Collins got away with some holds and face-masks that should have been called.

    Collins was very good in 2013 – better than his senior year – as the left tackle protecting the blind side of Zach Mettenberger. LSU had a lot of success running behind Collins, too. The 6-foot-4, 305-pounder was an impressive power run-blocker in 2012 and helped the Tigers’ stable of backs move the ball. He started 13 games at left guard and was an honorable mention All-SEC selection.

    Pick change; previously Sammie Coates, WR


  18. Buffalo Bills: Laken Tomlinson, G, Duke
    The Bills could use some competition at tackle and guard. Tomlinson could give Buffalo an upgrade at guard.

    Tomlinson (6-3, 323) is a gifted athlete with some agility and quickness for a big blocker. He carries his weight well and has some strength to him. Tomlinson started every game he played for the Blue Devils from his freshman season on. Tomlinson was a two-time ACC All-Academic selection, too.

    Tomlinson held his own and was impressive at times against Florida State in 2013’s ACC Championship Game. Tomlinson has recoverability skills. Even if a defender has a step or leverage on him, Tomlinson has the strength and quickness to take it away. He could continue to use some refinement, but he has upside and physicality to him.


  19. Houston Texans: Devin Smith, WR, Ohio State
    Houston needs a receiver and a middle linebacker. The Texans have to hope that a wideout like Smith or a linebacker like Denzel Perryman gets to their second-round pick. I think the team has a better shot at Smith than Perryman.

    Smith had only 33 receptions in 2014, but was a home-run hitter with 12 touchdowns and 931 yards. For the NFL, he looks like a dangerous deep-threat receiver who can take the top off a defense. Smith averaged 27 yards per reception in 2014. The 6-foot, 196-pounder is a late-riser who could end up being an early-round pick.

    Pick change; previously Denzel Perryman, ILB


  20. Philadelphia Eagles: Jake Fisher, OT, Oregon
    The Eagles could use some help at guard, so Chip Kelly could kick Fisher to the inside.

    Fisher played well in 2014. With Tyler Johnstone tearing an ACL in the preseason, Fisher moved from right tackle to left tackle. The senior was impressive against Michigan State and edge rusher Shilique Calhoun, who is an effective pass-rusher. Fisher’s stock has improved with his display of versatility.

    Fisher (6-6, 306) played well for the Ducks in 2013 by opening up a lot of holes on the ground. Against Stanford, UCLA and Texas, he had some rough moments in pass protection. Fisher also missed a few games with injuries as a junior.




  21. Cincinnati Bengals: Preston Smith, DE, Mississippi State
    The Bengals brought back Michael Johnson, but his 2014 and 2013 seasons were disappointing. Margus Hunt also hasn’t developed as planned. Smith gives the Bengals four defensive ends with Carlos Dunlap to rotate and keep fresh.

    Smith had little production before 2014 with only 2.5 sacks as a junior and 4.5 in his sophomore season. The senior showed a huge improvement in 2014 with nine sacks, 14.5 tackles for a loss, 44 tackles, two forced fumbles, three passes broken up and two interceptions. The 6-foot-4, 270-pounder has good size and had a solid Senior Bowl week that showed he’s tough against the run and can rush the passer.


  22. Detroit Lions: Ameer Abdullah, RB, Nebraska
    The Lions need a running back to replace Reggie Bush. Abdullah would be perfect as a runner and receiver to complement Detroit’s passing attack.

    Abdullah averaged 6.1 yards per carry in 2014 for 1,611 yards with 19 touchdowns. He had 22 receptions for 269 yards and three touchdowns, too. Abdullah became Nebraska’s all-time leading rusher when he ran for 229 yards on 35 carries versus Miami. Abdullah went over 200 yards against Florida Atlantic (232), Illinois (208) and Rutgers (225) as well. He suffered a sprained MCL against Purdue.

    Abdullah (5-9, 205) isn’t the biggest of backs, but he was a workhorse for the Cornhuskers. As a junior, Abdullah totaled 1,690 yards with an average of six yards per carry and scored nine touchdowns. He also caught 26 passes for 232 yards and two touchdowns. In 2012, Abdullah averaged five yards per carry for 1,137 yards with eight touchdowns. He caught 24 passes for 178 yards with two scores.

    For the NFL, Abdullah also offers kick- and punt-return skills. He was Nebraska’s primary returner as a freshman and sophomore.


  23. Arizona Cardinals: Carl Davis, DT, Iowa
    The Cardinals could use a nose tackle to replace Dan Williams.

    The 6-foot-5, 315-pound Davis is a tough run-defender at the point of attack with the speed to make plays in the backfield. He recorded 34 tackles with nine tackles for a loss, two sacks, and a pass broken up in 2014. Davis had a great Senior Bowl on the field, but made a terrible impression in the team interviews. That has really hurt his grade with some teams as he came across as lazy and arrogant.

    Davis notched 42 tackles, four tackles for a loss, one pass batted and 1.5 sacks in 2013. He had 14 tackles as a sophomore. The senior’s stock would be higher if he had increased his pass-rushing production year over year, but he was inconsistent as his motor ran hot and cold while also spending a lot of snaps on the sideline.


  24. Pittsburgh Steelers: Alex Carter, CB, Stanford
    Clearly, Pittsburgh needs to improve its cornerbacks. Carter fits with other corners the Steelers have drafted under Kevin Colbert and Mike Tomlin.

    Carter totaled nine passes broken up, one interception and 39 tackles in 2014. He played well against USC and held his own against Trojans wide receiver Nelson Agholor. Carter didn’t pitch a shutout, but Stanford didn’t have Carter following Agholor around the field. Against Arizona State wide receiver Jaelen Strong, Carter wasn’t beaten badly, but he didn’t prevent Strong from contributing. Carter had a mixed game against Oregon, but did manage to pick off Marcus Mariota, which was a very rare feat.

    Carter (6-0, 196) 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.




  25. Carolina Panthers: Duke Johnson, RB, Miami
    The Panthers could use an upgrade at running back. DeAngelo Williams is gone, and Jonathan Stewart can’t stay healthy.

    Duke Johnson has the speed to take it the distance on any carry and has improved his ability to pick up yards after contact. In 2014, the 5-foot-9, 206-pounder averaged 6.8 yards per carry for 1,652 yards with 10 touchdowns. He also had 38 receptions for 421 yards and three scores. Johnson is a back similar to Gio Bernard and looks like a three-down weapon for the NFL.

    A legitimate concern about Johnson is durability. He averaged 6.8 yards per carry for 947 yards and 10 touchdowns as a freshman in 2012. In 2013, Johnson totaled 920 yards with six scores (6.3 average) before missing the final five games after breaking his ankle against Florida State.


  26. Baltimore Ravens: Marcus Peters, CB, Washington
    The Ravens could take Peters in the first round, but might be able to wait on him with the off-the-field concerns.

    Before getting kicked off the Huskies in 2014, Peters recorded 23 tackles, five passes broken up and three interceptions. He was separated from the program for repeated arguments with the coaches. Some NFL teams may look past the issue, but it seems more likely that these concerns will push this first-round talent into the second day of the 2015 NFL Draft.

    As for his shortened season itself, Peters had a standout game going against Stanford wide receiver Ty Montgomery. He played Montgomery well to force incompletions and grabbed an interception. Peters showed the size and strength to battle bigger receivers with speed by running with Montgomery and not allowing separation. Peters held his own against Oregon as well. Versus Jaelen Strong and Arizona State, Peters had a solid game. He was beaten by Strong on two receptions, but had wins on Strong as well. Peters covered Strong better than any other defensive back did in 2014.

    In 2013, Peters recorded 55 tackles with five interceptions, one forced fumble and nine passes broken up. The 6-foot, 197-pounder had some clutch games against Stanford and Oregon State. The prior season, he snagged two interceptions for Washington.


  27. Denver Broncos: Cedric Ogbuehi, OT, Texas A&M
    The Broncos have to strengthen their offensive line. Ogbuehi could compete at right tackle or slide inside to guard.

    For the NFL, Ogbuehi needs to get stronger and improve his ability to sustain blocks. Strength is the one thing he lacks. Ogbuehi has superb feet, quickness, knee bend and agility. He is a fantastic athlete to be a left tackle, but has to get stronger.

    Ogbuehi looked great at left tackle against South Carolina to open 2014 and played at a high level until the opponents weren’t cupcakes. He was beaten for three sacks versus Mississippi State, including one to Bernardrick McKinney. Ogbuehi allowed sacks against Ole Miss, Alabama, Missouri (via Markus Golden) and LSU. However overall, he played well against Missouri and LSU.

    Ogbuehi (6-5, 306) had an excellent 2012 season blocking for Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel. With Luke Joeckel and Jake Matthews at the tackle positions, Ogbuehi played inside at guard. He excelled in pass and run blocking. Ogbuehi spent 2013 at right tackle with Joeckel in the NFL and Matthews having taken over the left side. Ogbuehi played well as he was a good run-blocker and a dependable pass-protector.


  28. Dallas Cowboys: Mario Edwards Jr., DT/DE, Florida State
    The Cowboys can start to build up their defensive line to match their strength on the other side of the ball. Rod Marinelli could use more ends and tackles who can get after the quarterback. A three-technique who can collapse the pocket is essential in Marinelli’s scheme.

    Edwards recorded 44 tackles, 10 tackles for a loss, three sacks, four passes batted and two forced fumbles in 2014. He was disruptive for the Seminoles. The 6-foot-3, 279-pounder has a nice combination of power, speed and athleticism. Edwards played heavier in college, but has the versatility to play end or tackle in the NFL. He also could serve as a five-technique in a 3-4 defense.

    Edwards played well for Florida State in 2013. The first-year starter totaled 28 tackles with 9.5 tackles for a loss, 3.5 sacks, an interception and a fumble return for a touchdown – against Clemson. Edwards was tough in the National Championship Game with three tackles for a loss and a sack.


  29. Indianapolis Colts: Stephone Anthony, ILB/OLB, Clemson
    The Colts have to improve their inside linebackers. D’Qwell Jackson turns 32 next September, and his play looked like it was slipping last season. Adding some young talent would make sense for Indianapolis.

    Anthony (6-2, 245) was a quality defender for Clemson the past three seasons. He had 69 tackles with 10.5 tackles for a loss, 2.5 sacks, three passes broken up, one interception and two forced fumbles in 2014. Anthony has the potential to develop into possibly being a three-down starter in the NFL. He helped himself with a good week at the Senior Bowl.

    Anthony recorded 131 tackles with 13.5 tackles for a loss, four sacks, one interception and five passes broken up in 2013. As a sophomore, he had 77 tackles with 4.5 tackles for a loss, one pick and three passes batted.


  30. Green Bay Packers: Eric Rowe, CB/S, Utah
    The Packers add some cornerback depth. Rowe fits the profile of what Green Bay looks for in a corner with height, length and physicality.

    Rowe (6-1, 205) helped himself with a quality week at the Senior Bowl. He has versatile size in that he can be a physical press-man corner or a deep free safety. Rowe looks like a corner to start off his career and a safety if that doesn’t work out.

    As a corner in his senior year, Rowe broke up 13 passes with an interception and 59 tackles. He played free safety as a junior and sophomore, and had 69 and 64 tackles respectively.


  31. Seattle Seahawks: Michael Bennett, DT, Ohio State
    The Seahawks could use an interior defensive lineman capable of collapsing the pocket, plus they are aging on the inside of their defensive line. Bennett is a really nice value for Seattle and could have an immediate impact as a situational pass-rusher.

    Bennett totaled 40 tackles, 14 tackles for a loss, seven sacks, three passes broken up and three forced fumbles in 2014. The senior is a fast gap-shooter who can cause disruption in the backfield. He also can get pummeled in the ground game.

    In 2013, Bennett totaled 42 tackles with 11.5 tackles for a loss, seven tackles and three forced fumbles. The 6-foot-2, 293-pounder has some quickness and needs to add weight.


  32. New England Patriots: Tre’ Jackson, G, Florida State
    The Patriots could use a lot of young talent for their offensive line and have shown interest in Jackson.

    The 6-foot-4, 330-pound Jackson was a rock-solid blocker for the Seminoles in 2013. He is a good run-blocker who could use some improvement to handle speed rushers. Overall, Jackson did a good job of protecting Jameis Winston, but for the NFL, the speed rushers are his objective to improve against.

    Jackson also has some experience at right tackle. He broke into the starting lineup at right guard in 2012. Jackson has nice agility and movement skills for a big lineman.
