2015 Mock Draft (Ginger King’s 1.0)

Round 1 Pick Analysis
1. Tampa Bay BucsTampa Bay 2 Jamies Winston, QB Unless Lovie and the boys are throwing a major smokescreen, this is going to be the pick.  You may as well send the signing bonus straight to Mons Venus.
2 Tennessee TitansTennessee Titans Leonard Williams, DE Williams is being touted as the best player in the draft, and we believe it.  Tennessee seems content with Zach Mettenberg as their starting quarterback.  Apparently they weren’t paying attention when he played last year.  Anyway,
3. Jacksonville JaguarsJacksonville Jaguars

Dante Fowler, DE

The Jags continue their streak of Top 10 picks (6 years in row, btw).  Gus Bradley values speed and defense, and he’ll get both with Fowler.

4. Oakland RaidersOakland Raiders Kevin White, WR

This pick will be a receiver, the question is, which one?  Both White and Amari Cooper are neck and neck as the draft’s top wideout.  How do the Raiders settle ties?  40 times.  In that case, the edge goes to White.

5. Washington RedskinsWashington Redskins

Danny Shelton, DT

Washington has to get better up front defensively.  Despite every coach they bring in hating RGIII, the offense is not their problem…at least not their biggest problem.  Shelton’s the best tackle in the draft, drawing comparisons to Haloti Ngata.

6. New York JetsNY Jets

Marcus Mariota, QB

The Jets would love it if Mariota were still here.  It puts them in a great position to trade out of this pick, as a number of teams (Eagles, Cleveland, San Diego) are rumored to want to trade up.  They could stockpile picks or move on from the Geno Smith era and draft Mariota.

7. Atlanta FalconsAtlanta Falcons Vic Beasley, DE

Atlanta needs to get younger and faster upfront.  They should take the best edge rusher available.  Beasley, Alvin Dupree, and Randy Gregory may all be available.  Gregory smoked himself out of the Top 10, and we give Beasley a slight edge over Dupree.

8. Chicago BearsChicago Bears

Amari Cooper, WR

Chicago would run to the podium with this pick if Cooper falls to them here.  With Brandon Marshall gone, Chicago doesn’t miss a beat by drafting this Julio Jones clone.

9. New York GiantsNY Giants

La’el Collins, OT

The smart pick is offensive line, because even with that makeshift line the Giants had last year, Eli Manning has one of his best years.  The Giants will pick the best lineman that projects as a tackle.  That’s why Collins gets the edge over Brandon Scherff.  Plus, the G-Men love LSU players.

10. St. Louis RamsSt. Louis Rams Brandon Scherff, OT

A no brainer pick.  With Jake Long gone, and Joseph Baksdale set to leave via free agency, the Rams need to reload on the offensive line.

11. Minnesota Vikings Shane Ray, DE
12. Cleveland Browns Alvin Dupree, DE
13. New Orleans Saints Randy Gregory, DE
14. Miami Dolphins Trae Waynes, CB
15. San Francisco 49ers Andrus Peat, OT

17. San Diego Chargers Melvin Gordon, RB
18. Kansas City Chiefs Malcom Brown, DE
19. Cleveland Browns Ereck Flowers, OT
20. Philadelphia Eagles Jaelen Strong, WR
21. Cincinnati Bengals Eddie Goldman, DE
22. Pittsburgh Steelers Landon Collins, S
23. Detroit Lions DJ Humprhries
24. Arizona Cardinals Erik Kendricks, LB
25. Carolina Panthers Todd Gurley, RB
26. Baltimore Ravens Arik Armstead, DT
27. Dallas Cowboys Jalen Collins, CB
28. Denver Broncos TJ Clemmons, OT
29. Indianapolis Colts Cameron Erving, OL
30. Green Bay Packers Byron Jones, CB
