1 of 3

In a world where all eyes are on the upcoming NFL Draft, there are these fun things called Mock Drafts.

You’ll probably read over 100 of these per offseason. Sometimes they are spot on and other times they leave you scratching your head.

This is the first mock draft I’ve ever put together. There’s a good chance you might be doing a little of both after reading. Nevertheless Here we go:

With the 1st pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the Tampa Bay Bucaneers select: Jameis Winston, Quarterback, Florida State University.

I think we all know at this point that this is a sure thing. The Bucaneers are in need of a quarterback and have a shot at the best one in the class in Wintson. While Winston is the best QB in the draft, I wouldn’t expect him to be game changer in Tampa for at least a few more years.

The Tennessee Titans have traded the 2nd pick to the San Diego Chargers. With the 2nd pick, the Chargers select: Marcus Mariota, Quarterback, Oregon.

I believe that this trade will go through and the Titans will move on with Phillip Rivers. What does it say about Mariota, that the Titans would rather take a quarterback that is 12 years older than him and on the back-end of his career? Ultimately I believe Mariota will be the better quarterback out of the two in the long run.  The Titans could wind up regretting this when looking for a starting quarterback in 2 years.

With the 3rd pick in the draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars select: Brandon Scherff, Offensive guard, Iowa.

The Jaguars have their quarterback of the future. Now they need to protect him. The Jags took offensive tackle Luke Joeckel 2nd overall in the 2013 NFL Draft, and taking Scherff could further bolster that line. As we learned from the Dallas Cowboys last year, a good offensive line can help a team take the next step. Watch out for Jacksonville in the coming years.

With the 4th pick, the Oakland Raiders select: Breshad Perriman, Wide Receiver, Central Florida.

Here’s where I go off the beaten path and readers either hold on for the ride or exit out of the page. Perriman is a guy that has gained a lot of steam in the public eye after a great combine. That may not make him the best receiver in the draft, but it will be enough to bait the Raiders into taking him with the 4th pick. The Raiders have a history of picking speedy guys and if Perriman works out, Carr will have his receiving threat the he missed so badly last year.

With the 5th pick, the Washington Redskins select: Leonard Williams, Defensive End, USC

The Redskins had one of the worst defenses in the league last year. part of the reason their 24th ranked pass defense had so may issues is that they lacked a player that could get after the quarterback. Enter Leonard Williams. Williams is a strong and fast lineman that can rush from the edge and line up on the inside as well. The Redskins should sprint to the podium to select Williams.

With the 6th pick, the New York Jets select: Landon Collins, Safety, Alabama

The New York Jets could have their own version of the Legion Of Boom with this pick. After re-acquiring Darelle Revis and signing Antonio Cromartie and Buster Skirne. Try passing on this team. It’s truly scary to think of what this Jets defense could be.

With the 7th pick, the Chicago Bears select: Amari Cooper, Wide Receiver, Alabama.

With the loss of Brandon Marshall, the Bears will be in the market for his replacement. With the consensus best receiver in the draft still here at 7, the Bears could do just that. it could be argued the Bears would be better off making a defensive pick here.

With the 8th pick, the Atlanta Falcons select: Kevin Johnson, Cornerback, Wake Forrest.

The 32nd ranked Atlanta Falcons defense couldn’t stop anyone last season. This is a nice starting piece of a much larger puzzle. Johnson can come in and help jumpstart the leagues worst defense which is now led by secondary guru Dan Quinn

With the 9th pick, the New York Giants select: Shane Ray, Defensive End, Missouri

The Giants 30th ranked run defense got run all over this past season. Mainly because they had nobody to help out JPP when it comes to getting after the ball carrier. Putting Shane Ray opposite JPP could suffocate some quarterbacks into making poor throws and give running backs no options but to rush up the gut.

With the 10th pick, the St. Louis Rams select: Todd Gurley, Running Back, Georgia

This may be a reach, but somebody’s going to do it. I believe the Rams will be that team. it’s hard for me to justify a running back going in this high. I think the belief that once healthy, Gurley will be an all pro running back will be enough for the Rams to pull the trigger. I wouldn’t.
