2015 NFL Mock Draft Round 2 | 1-16 by Tyler
1. Tennessee-Jaelen Strong, WR, Arizona St.-Not what the Titans wanted to do, but they lack a true #1 receiver. They can’t pass on a clone of Boldin.
2. Tampa Bay-Jake Fisher, T, Oregon-Tampa may be better served trading back, but they better look for protection for Jameis Winston. Fisher is a great athlete, and can grow into the LT spot, though there will be some growing pains.
3. Oakland-Dorial Green Beckham, WR, Oklahoma-DGB has his issues, but could be the top receiver in this draft. Impossible to cover, Oakland will overlook the character concerns to provide Carr a talent.
4. Jacksonville-Tevin Coleman, RB, Indiana-Again, the D will get by, the Jags need to set the offense. Coleman can keep the run first tempo this team wants. They need a Lynch like power house who can be a game breaker.
5. New York Jets-Eddie Goldman, NT, Florida St.-Bowles had Dan Williams down in the desert, and the mammoth Goldman can provide the same run blocking skills here.
6. Washington-Donovan Smith, T, Penn St.-Smith is shooting up the draft boards, displaying his footwork and power. He is a LT in training, but will be a wide body at RT for now.
7. Chicago-Eli Harold, LB, Virginia-Chicago has Allen, McPhee, and McClellin to throw at a QB, but a talent like Harold will be hard to pass on.
8. New York Giants-Damarious Randall, FS, Arizona St.-The best player on the board fits a huge need for the Giants.
9. St. Louis-Bernardrick McKinney, LB, Mississippi St.-The Rams are openly looking at LB’s, especially ones who can stop the run. Fisher likes his LB’s big and powerful. McKinney can certainly plug holes and play all three LB spots.
10. Atlanta-Eric Kendricks, ILB, UCLA-Nothing against Worrilow, but this D requires a flashy, seek and destroy LB in the middle.
11. Cleveland-Garrett Grayson, QB, Colorado St.-Grayson is another incredible reach, but Browns fans can appreciate this. Grayson is more than capable of being a game manager, and is much better than McKown. Grayson is the last QB who understands an NFL system. Cleveland is a very good team, and can’t afford to be brought down by horrendous QB play.
12. New Orleans-A.J. Cann, G, S. Carolina-Cann should easily win a starting job in New Orleans, but if not, still provides superior depth along a makeshift line.
13. Minnesota-Laken Tomlinson, G, Duke-Tomlinson can excel at either G position, if Peterson departs, Minnesota will need to improve along the O line to get bigger holes for lesser backs.
14. San Francisco-Maxx Williams, TE, Minnesota-Originally this mock had Williams as a desperate reach for the Browns in round 1. Rumors are flying about his arrogance, and he may be a primadonna. The Niners need a solid option at TE, and will not shy from his attitude.
15. Miami-Jalen Collins, CB, LSU-One of the more athletic, and sought after corners, Collins doesn’t have a ton of experience under his belt.
16. San Diego-Ameer Abdullah, RB, Nebraska-Abdullah is getting very little credit, but can flat out carry an offense. This is the three down back the Bolts need to bring balance back to the offense.
