2015 NFL Mock Draft Picks 21-32 by Ian
21. Cincinnati – Arik Armstead – DT – Oregon. Armstead is a more natural fit in a 3-4 defense but the Bengals run a 4-3. Armstead can be moved around on the Bengals defensive front because he has the size and athleticism to play multiple positions in different scenarios.
22. Pittsburgh – Landon Collins – S – Alabama. Even before Troy Polumalu retired the Steelers needed help on the back end of their defense. Collins is a true strong safety who can help against the run by dropping down into the box.
23. Detroit – Andrus Peat – OT – Stanford. Riley Reiff has been a solid tackle for Detroit but Peat could allow them to move Reiff back to the right side which would sure up the offensive line as a whole.
24. Arizona – Marcus Peters – CB – Washington – Arizona lost Antonia Cromartie to the Jets and now need help opposite Patrick Peterson. Marcus Peters has had some off the field issues, like Tyrann Mathieu had before coming to Arizona. The coaching staff and veteran players for the Cardinals will make sure that Peters stays focused on football and doesn’t have any other issues much like they have done with Mathieu so far.
25. Carolina – DJ Humphries – OT- Florida – Humphries has some weight issues, but not the type of weight issues usually associated with offensive lineman. He needs to add weight but can be the left tackle Carolina needs to protect Cam Newton.
26. Baltimore – Devin Smith – WR – Ohio State. The Ravens lost Torrey Smith this offseason and need to replace his ability to take the top off a defense. Devin Smith can do just that and more, his route running is under rated and he has shown some high level playmaking ability.
27. Dallas – Owamagbe Odighizuwa – DE – UCLA. Gregy Hardy was supposed to be the answer to the Cowboys pass rush problems, but he is suspended for 10 games as of right now. Odighizuwa has been rising up draft boards since right around the NFL combine and has shown the athleticism to become a good pass rusher in the NFL.
28. Denver – La’el Collins – OG – LSU. Collins played a lot of tackle at LSU but his best position going forward in at guard in the NFL. I don’t doubt he could play some right tackle, a position the Broncos need as well but his future is at guard.
29. Indianapolis – Kevin Johnson – CB- Wake Forest. Johnson would provide the Colts with a solid young corner opposite Vontae Davis and give them one of the top cornerback duos in the league for a few years.
30. Green Bay – Eric Kendricks – ILB – UCLA. Drafting an ILB is like taking two players for the Packers. Kendricks would allow Clay Matthews to move back to the edge where he is one of the most feared pass rushers in the league.
31. New Orleans – Byron Jones – CB – UCONN. Jones was a fast riser after blowing up at the NFL combine. He practically broad jumped out of the building but there is injury concerns after he missed most of his senior year will an injury. He has the size and athleticism to cover the bigger receivers in this division like Julio Jones, Mike Evans and Kelvin Benjamin.
32. New England – Jalen Collins – CB – LSU. Collins will not replace what Revis brought to New England but he can help. Collins showed flashes at LSU and the combine that let everyone know he has the skills to play at the next level, but he is not Revis.
