NFL Draft

Kozora: Full 2015 NFL Draft Seven Round Mock (Part 2)

After working feverishly the last few days, I’ve put together a full, 32 team NFL mock draft. Each pick also has a short note describing the need or the prospect. Don’t hold me to this for the Pittsburgh Steelers picks, however, as you can’t always get the guys you really like. It’s still a fun exercise to see how things could actually turn out.

And at the least, you get to see a couple new names and learn a little more about needs and prospects. The list is below. Feel free to leave a comment.

Here are the final four-rounds and if you missed the first three-rounds, you can view them here.

Round Four

100. TEN – Duke Johnson/RB Miami (FL): Good value in the fourth. Explosion on his cuts, Sankey was underwhelming rookie year.
101. NE – Donald Celiscar/CB Western Michigan: Kid I really like. Top notch ball skills who is physical though needs to work on technique.
102. OAK – Tyrus Thompson/OT Oklahoma: Team has invested in line last two years with Gabe Jackson and Hudson but RT still a hole with Khalif Barnes. Thompson the mauler they like.
103. JAC – David Cobb/RB Minnesota: Team still hasn’t found a true back. Cobb shows plus explosion at 225 pounds, has lower body power, and an option out of the backfield. Needs to work on pass protection.
104. NYJ – BJ Finney/C Kansas St: Classic throwback lineman who doesn’t look the part but turned himself from walk-on into team captain. Tackle versatility, too.
105. WSH – TJ Yeldon/RB Alabama: Fits ZBS scheme well, one cut type. Behind Alfred Morris.
106. CHI – Lorenzo Mauldin/OLB Louisville: New defenses always means stacking up on those key positions to find players to “fit” your system and not rely just on inherited talent. Mauldin is solid value in the 4th.
107. ATL – Kurtis Drummond/FS Michigan St: Productive athlete who timed well. Falcons’ secondary continues to be revamped.
108. NYG – Brett Hundley/QB UCLA: Wasn’t sure where to go here. Did spend mid-rounder on Ryan Nassib but not tied to him anymore. Good value, chance to develop. But don’t like QBs in mid-rounds so I knock them in my mocks.
109. TB – Za’Darius Smith/DE Kentucky: Tweener-type but like him better with his hand down. Doesn’t have bend.
110. MIN – Tyler Kroft/TE Rutgers: Competent blocker who poses a size mismatch. Stuck in a bad college system and could easily have more productive NFL career.
111. CLE – Chris Conley/WR Georgia: Workout warrior. Compliments the smaller Lockett well. Team needs weapons.
112. SEA – Mitch Morse/OG Missouri: Interior swing guy with experience everywhere. Helps ease the loss of Unger and missing out of Stefen Wisniewski.
113. PHI – Joey Mbu/DE Houston: Bit higher than what some expect but he’s long and could fit as an undersized nose or five tech. Fletcher Cox could be dealt on draft day.
114. MIA – Josue Matias/OG Florida St: Seminoles have a thousand lineman in the draft this year. Dolphins lost both their guard, looks to become starter over Dallas Thomas.
115. CLE – JaCorey Shepard/CB Kansas: Probably a lot lower than where he should go. Browns get great value even if CB isn’t a huge need. Gilbert still a major question mark.
116. HOU – Darren Waller/WR Georgia Tech: Polarizing 6’6 receiver but is raw. Will take time to develop. But nice toy to play around with and could help red zone woes with a bad QB.
117. SD – Alani Fua/OLB BYU: They like Jeremiah Attoachu a lot so they waited. Fua is a project but has upside, running in the 4.5’s at his Pro Day.
118. KC – Kenny Bell/WR Oklahoma: Long frame and a great blocker. Add Maclin but still a group that didn’t catch a TD pass last year.
119. STL – Anthony Harris/SS Virginia: Versatile safety that could play either. Adds depth in their back end with starters TJ McDonald and Rodney McLeod.
120. CIN – Jeff Heuerman/TE Ohio St: Not his biggest fan but interested in what he can do in an offense that features the position more. Bengals sure do.
121. PIT – Derron Smith/SS Fresno St: Experience at both safety spots. 13 INTs in 2012-2013 seasons. Steelers’ safeties didn’t have one in 2014.
122. BAL – Ty Sambrailo/OT Colorado St: Good value in the 4th. Maybe becomes swing tackle with starters set. Move to LG is possible.
123. ARI – Mike Hull/ILB Penn St: Thumper at ILB who is a better athlete than given credit for. Can’t trust Daryl Washington’s future.
124. CAR – Jamison Crowder/WR Duke: Slot receiver but quicks to win at that level. Compliment to Kelvin Benjamin.
125. BAL – Rakeem Nunez-Roches/DT Southern Mississippi: Underrated DT, like Khyri Thornton last year. Rotational help after Ngata loss elevates Timmy Jernigan.
126. SF – Justin Coleman/CB Tennessee: Quick-twitch corner with NFL starting size. Maybe a little higher than some expect but no corners that are so obviously better, either.
127. DAL – Jeremy Langford/RB Michigan St: Team needs a RB after losing Murray and only adding fragile McFadden. Langford here would be good value in many people’s eyes.
128. IND – Christian Covington/DE Rice: Five tech prospect to add depth behind Langford.
129. GB – Ellis McCarthy/NT UCLA: Worry about his weight but has potential to be a great nose. Used to have it with Pickett and Raji, not at that level anymore.
130. SEA – Antwan Goodley/WR Baylor: Another receiver to add depth, received a Jermaine Kearse comparison on
131. NE – Robert Myers/OG Tennessee St: Belichick always goes with a pick no one talks about, raises eyebrows. Does the same here.
132. SF – Mycole Pruitt/TE Southern Illinois: Finally an offensive selection. Davis was awful last year Pruitt is a project.
133. DEN – Ramik Wilson/ILB Georgia: Thumper for their 3-4. Brandon Marshall great last year but coming off foot surgery. Good depth.
134. SEA – Clayton Geathers/SS Central Florida: Big hitter, shades of Kam Chancellor. Depth. 52 game starter. Special team’s experience so can help right away.
135. CIN – Jacoby Glenn/CB UCF: CB not a big need, three to four deep, but Glenn will take a year or two to develop. RS soph. Landscape could change by then.
136. BAL – Jesse James/TE Penn St: Not sure Dennis Pitta will ever recover. Crockett Gilmore starter but James has potential to be well-rounded #2.

Round Five

137. MIN – Anthony Chickillo/DE Miami (FL): Tweener but see him as an end. Too stiff and slow as an OLB. But looked good in the Shrine Game.
138. TEN – Max Garcia/OG Florida: Versatile interior swingman who continues to add to the line.
139. JAC – Charles Gaines/CB Louisville: Dwayne Gratz struggled, might be a backup in 2014.
140. OAK – Nick Marshall/CB Auburn: Flier on conversion guy, sort of similar to Taiwan Jones though that didn’t work out.
141. WSH – Derrick Lott/DE Tennessee-Chattanooga: Jason Hatcher is 32 and could become cap casualty this offseason. Lott is a Georgia transfer who needs to work on conditioning, wears down in games.
142. CHI – Garrett Grayson/QB Colorado St: Jay Cutler future is odd. How much longer will he be with the team? Two years? Grayson can be developed.
143. DEN – Jamil Douglas/OG Arizona St: Athletic kid who has played both tackle and guard. Fits well in Kubiak’s ZBS.
144. NYG – Louis Trinca-Pasat/DT Iowa: Quick three tech with better production than Carl Davis. Giants’ interior line could use a body.
145. PHI – Kyle Emanuel/OLB North Dakota St: Highly productive college OLB. Always looking for bodies to get after the QB. Can sit and develop.
146. ATL – Mike Davis/RB South Carolina: Steven Jackson gone, Smith off injury.
147. CLE – Max Valles/OLB Virginia: Lost Jabaal Sheard in offseason. Valles just a redshirt sophomore and not even close as a pass rusher but experience dropping into coverage and has the size.
148. NO – Rory Anderson/TE South Carolina: Athletic, productive TE plagued by injuries. Waited at position because they love Josh Hill but still worth addressing following Jimmy Graham trade.
149. MIA – Martrell Spaight/OLB Arkansas: Off the line linebacker after lost depth with Dannel Ellerbee. Starting group is weak.
150. MIA – Dezmin Lewis/WR Central Arkansas: Big frame at 6’4 and one of the top small school players in the draft.
151. SF – Jarvis Harrison/OG Texas A&M: Kid that looks good on tape but weight and shoulder concerns really bother me. Causes him to fall but hopefully Jim Tomsula whips him into shape.
152. HOU – Corey Crawford/DE Clemson: Maybe a little higher than I would’ve liked but he fits their system well. Not true two-gappers and Crawford isn’t that. Not physical and needs to bulk up. But good length and a decent athlete.
153. SD – Josh Harper/WR Fresno St: Not a big fan of him, has to be more explosive off the line. But good value.
154. NO – Justin Cox/FS Mississippi St: Cornerback/safety hybrid with great measurable. Over fix feet who ran well.
155. BUF – Mark Glowinski/OG West Virginia: Bills’ interior line is a mess, terrible guard play last year. Glowinski is a throwback kid who works best in a booth.
156. PHI – Geremy Davis/WR UConn: Interesting kid with decent hands and a big frame. Eagles continue to look to add depth at receiver.
157. CIN – Reese Dismukes/C Auburn: Bit undersized but helps beef up Bengals’ interior.
158. BAL – Bobby McCain/CB Memphis: Double down at CB since Ifo may not contribute year one. McCain playmaker who can help in return game, help ease loss of Jacoby Jones.
159. ARI – Bobby Richardson/DE Indiana: Low-upside player with length and some strength to play the five. Redding brought in but older at DE.
160. PIT – Dres Anderson/WR Utah: Team could look for a receiver even higher but finally snag one in the fifth. Anderson’s 2014 season was cut short by a knee injury but he had Day Two talent before it. Steelers were at his workout.
161. CAR – Tyeler Davison/DT Fresno St: Nice value here. Davison is a productive three tech who can rotate behind Star Lotulelei and Kawaan Short.
162. TB – Xzavier Dickson/OLB Alabama – Athletic kid from a big school who can be a top backup. Bruce Carter no guarantee to stay healthy.
163. DAL – Sean Mannion/QB Oregon St: Some call him the most pro ready QB after Winston and Mariota. Tony Romo has been banged up and Brandon Weeden is the only backup. Good value.
164. DEN – Garry Peters/CB Clemson: Underrated corner who has some draftniks in his corner. When in doubt, take DBs.
165. IND – Deon Simon/NT Northwestern St: Big plugger who can move a little bit. Colts love collecting big uglies. Hughes, Kerr, Chapman.
166. GB – Buck Allen/RB USC: Not a big fan of him as a runner but he’s going to be able to help right away in pass protection and working out of the backfield.
167. SEA – David Parry/DT Stanford: Not a great athlete but a good run stuffer. Perhaps a little high but Pete Carroll and John Schneider marches to the beat of their own drum, anyway.
168. DET – LaDarius Gunter/FS Miami (FL): Think he has to switch to safety due to stiffness and hips and lack of speed. But could become center fielder with good length, ability to find the football.
169. CAR – Josh Robinson/RB Mississippi St: Fill in for DeAngelo Williams being cut. Robinson tough runner who harkens shades of Maurice Jones-Drew. RB group was a mess when injuries hit last year.
170. SEA – Jake Ryan/OLB Michigan: Good value. Ryan a hard worker who was productive at Michigan.
171. BAL – Justin Hardy/WR East Carolina: Second receiver the needy Ravens have taken. Hardy is dependable and a good route runner. Compliments pick of Smith well.
172. KC – Rob Crisp/OT North Carolina St: Big, athletic tackle who can’t stay healthy.
173. KC – Trey Williams/RB Texas A&M: Feels like they take a RB every year. Knile Davis, Cyrus Gray, De’Anthony Thomas.
174. CAR – Nick Boyle/TE Delaware: Good blocker with a sneaky bit of athleticism.
175. HOU – Takoby Cofield/OG Duke: Overshadowed by Tomlinson but a decent athlete and fits their ZBS. Spent enough on skill positions already.
176. BAL – Davis Tull/OLB Tennessee-Chattanooga: Will have to redshirt first year but team has depth to weather it. 42.5 vertical got a lot of attention at the Combine. Hard-working kid.

Round Six
177. TEN – Darius Philon/DT Arkansa: Drops a little. Undersized DT but can penetrate get upfield. Titans like collecting good athlete in their front seven.
178. NE – Ryan Russell/OLB Purdue: Unheralded OLB who never produced big numbers but was consistent and has good starting experience.
179. OAK – Imoan Claiborne/FS Northwestern State: Charles Woodson is 200 years old. Safety is thin. A corner, he’ll make the switch at the NFL level.
180. JAC – Ibraheim Campbell/SS Northwestern: True in-the-box kid who lacks range but can clock you. At worst, quality ST guy who can set the tone.
181. SEA – Kevin White/CB TCU: Knocked for his height competitive guy who can high point the football. Good technician.
182. WSH – Anthony Jefferson/SS UCLA: Truthfully, should have been addressed earlier. Poor class didn’t help matters. 161 tackles the last two years.
183. CHI – Terry Williams/NT East Carolina: Higher than where he is pegged but chance to be true zero technique in a new 3-4 defense.
184. TB – Mario Alford/WR West Virginia: Came into the year the better prospect than White. Not how it panned out but he made news again after running in the 4.2’s at his Pro Day.
185. ATL – Jeff Luc/MLB Cincinnati: Burst onto the scene in 2014 with a million tackles, 134 to be exact, and 6.5 sacks. Great value in the 6th. Could go even higher.
186. NYG – Cam Thomas/CB Western Kentucky: Nice sized corner but an inconsistent tackler from a smaller school.
187. NO – Dexter McDonald/CB Kansas: Teams always looking for special teamers in the later rounds and CBs generally lend themselves to that. Nice triangle numbers. 6’1, 200 pounds, 4.42 40 at Pro Day.
188. BUF – Ben Koyack/TE Notre Dame: Did get Clay but means the position could be featured more often. Koyack was productive.
189. CLE – Quinton Spain/OG West Virginia: Not a pressing need but he’s solid value who can play LT and LG.
190. SF – Ty Montgomery/WR Stanford: 49ers look for a weapon after releasing Michael Crabtree..
191. MIA – Lorenzo Doss/CB Tulane: Waited on CB because they’ve spent high picks on the position, Jamar Aikens and Will Davis, but going with mantra of taking DBs late.
192. SD – Adam Shead/OG Oklahoma: Power blocker as the Chargers try to fix their interior OL.
193. KC – Deiontrez Mount/OLB Louisville: High upside athlete who tested well. Tamba Hali doesn’t have much time left.
194. BUF – Durell Eskridge/SS Syracuse: Good size but poor vertical and an average athlete.
195. HOU – Julian Wilson/CB Oklahoma: Nice triangle prospect. 6’2 205 who ran a 4.48 at his Pro Day.
196. PHI – Troy Hill/CB Oregon: Wouldn’t be a mock if Chip Kelly didn’t take a Duck. Off the field issues push Hill to here.
197. CIN – Zach Vigil/MLB Utah St: Nice value pick in the 6th. Underrated linebacker who ran a 4.68 at his Pro Day.
198. ARI – Jordan Richards/SS Stanford: In-the-box type at 5’10 211 who was productive at a good school.
199. PIT – Bryce Callahan/CB Rice: Tiny corner they’ve shown interest in. But jumped 43 inches in the vertical and 11 feet even in the broad at his Pro Day.
200. DET – Zach Zenner/RB South Dakota St: Insanely productive back who rushed for over 2000 yards in each of the last three years. Has some receiving ability to which the team looks for.
201. CAR – Damian Swann/CB Georgia: Solid starting experience and the team lacks depth here. Arguably should have taken one earlier.
202. CLE – Michael Dyer/RB Louisville: A bit similar to Isaiah Crowell, Dyer has a checkered past. Wasn’t nearly as productive as Crowell but with most other positions filled, they take a runner.
203. DEN – Sage Harold/OLB James Madison: Productive pass rusher even if it was at the FCS level. 23.5 TFL 13.5 sacks while serving as a team captain.
204. BAL – Arie Kouandjio/OG Alabama: Bit of a faller but more name value than talent. Ravens take their second offensive lineman of the day.
205. IND – Chris Hackett/FS TCU: Timed poorly, running in the 4.8’s. But had a nice career with the Horned Frogs. Six interceptions in 2014.
206. GB – DeAndre Smelter/WR Georgia Tech: Physical receiver who turned to football after his baseball career ended. Torn ACL knocks his stock and he may have to redshirt a season.
207. IND – Sean Hickey/OH Syracuse: Not a big fan of him because I don’t think he does anything well but a versatile kid who could switch from tackle to guard at the next level.
208. TEN – Bryan Bennett/QB Southeastern Louisiana: Like last year, team takes a QB in the 6th. Bennett was originally recruited to Oregon before transferring out after Mariota won the job.
209. SEA – Malcolm Agnew/RB Southern Illinois: Highly productive back who shined at the NFLPA game before injury cut his season short. Averaged 6 YPC and ten touchdowns in eight games.
210. GB – Andrew Donnal/OT Iowa: Only a one year starter but moves well. Packers are always good for taking an OT late.
211. HOU – Tevin McDonald/FS Eastern Washington: Productive FCS kid who transferred from UCLA. Three interceptions in 2014.
212. PIT – Karlos Williams/RB Florida St: Brother of current Steelers’ ILB Vince Williams, the family is back together. Williams is a power type who ran well at the Combine. 4.48 at 230 pounds in Indy.
213. GB – Wes Saxton/TE South Alabama: Just a flier on an athletic tight end. Hands must be more consistent and of course, competition issue.
214. SEA – Cody Fajardo/QB Nevada: Athletic kid who can learn from Russell Wilson.
215. STL – Chad Hamilton/C Coastal Carolina: Issue at center, Tim Barnes starting center. Three-time all-conference selection.
216. HOU – Michael Burton/FB Rutgers: First fullback off the board who can be an H-Back. Jay Prosch got some work last year in a similar role.
217. KC – Randall Telfer/TE USC: They like Demetrius Harris but could stand to add competition after losing depth with departure of Anthony Fasano.

Round Seven

218. TB – Antoine Everett/OG McNeese St: Team continues to add depth along their OL after losing a lot during the offseason.
219. NE – Casey Pierce/TE Kent St: Stock is up after a good showing at the Golden Flashes’ Pro Day. 36 inch vertical was the most notable.
220. JAC – Leterrius Watson/DT Central Michigan: MAC kid who went to the Combine. Good size at 6’5 221. OAK – Matt Jones/RB Florida: Probably will go higher than this but don’t trust the three knee surgeries he’s had without ever being a full-time back.
222. WSH – Dean Marlowe/FS James Madison: Redskins go back-to-back at safety. Marlow goes 6’1/4
223. NYJ – Tony Lippett/WR Michigan St: Falls because concerns of if he can separate. Some have floated the idea of him moving to corner.
224. NYJ – John Crockett/RB North Dakota St: Broke out in 2014. Plus size.
225. ATL – Ricky Collins/WR Texas A&M Commerce: Impressive Pro Day, running a 4.53 and jumping 36 inches. Some like him more than teammate Vernon Johnson.
226. NYG – Greg Henderson/CB Colorado: Secondary depth. 45 career starts who had four interceptions back in 2013.
227. STL – Ray Drew/DE Georgia: 2014 production was scant but 2013 was great. 8 TFL 6 sacks. Chris Long is 30 and his play is falling off.
228. MIN – Corey Robinson/OT South Carolina: Matt Kalil was poor last year. Big body at 324 pounds with experience against good competition.
229. CLE – Jameil Showers/QB UTEP: Limited work but liked him in the NFLPA game. Received high praise from Mike Martz. Good enough for me.
230. NO – Cole Manhart/OT Nebraska-Kearney: Small school kid from the D2 level. Two-time All-American. Cashed in on small school Terron Armstead from Arkansas Pine-Bluff.
231. TB – Christian Greene/WR Florida St: Going to be a little silly here. Always like taking a WR from the same school as your franchise QB. Greene only caught six receptions last year but James Wright got drafted in the 7th round without a single one in 2014. Successful target for the Bengals.
232. MIN – Kyshoen Jarrett/SS Virginia Tech: Needs to be able to wrap up. Safety weakness that was tough to address in a below average class.
233. KC – Jalston Fowler/FB Alabama: Competition for Anthony Sherman, one of the few teams who still gets their involved.
234. BUF – Trenton Brown/OT Florida: Bills love big, long tackles. Can’t find any better with Brown. 6’8 355.
235. HOU – Jamon Brown/OT Louisville: Athletic enough tackle. Adds depth to the right side.
236. DAL – Jermauria Rasco/DE LSU: Actually had better sack numbers than Danielle Hunter. But not nearly the athlete. Rasco couldn’t even eclipse 30 inches in the vertical.
237. PHI – Hayes Pullard/ILB USC: Short, six foot on the button, but ran a respectable 4.66 at his Pro Day. DeMeco Ryans is 31 off a torn Achilles.
238. CIN – Cameron Artis-Payne/RB Auburn: May not have room on the roster and destined for practice squad. But great value in the 7th.
239. PIT – Zach Wagenmann/OLB Montana: Typical explosive pass rusher Steelers’ fans can get excited about in camp. But I like him, too. Great first step. 37.5 career sacks.
240. DET – Devin Mahina/TE BYU: Tight end depth is pretty good for the Lions but Mahina is 2a receiver who adjusts to the ball in the air well.
241. ARI – Tray Walker/CB Southern: Great size and a real small school sleeper teams have taken a liking to.
242. CAR – Jeremiah Poutasi/OG Utah: Even I’ll admit this is a bit low but I’m not a big fan of him. Power guy but can’t move in space. Left tackle in college, he’ll kick inside to guard.
243. DAL – Nick Perry/FS Alabama: Underrated safety who played in a complicated, pattern-reading scheme.
244. IND – James Vaughters/OLB Stanford: Tested well as an OLB with few opportunities at Stanford. High reward pick in the 7th.
245. NYG – DeAndrew White/WR Alabama: Nick Saban stamp of approval. Good enough for me.
246. SF – Lynden Trail/OLB Norfolk St: Great size and originally committed to Florida but stiff hips and a true tweener. Who knows, maybe he switches to TE. I’d put him there.
247. GB – Travis Lee/CB Miles College: Another small school kid. Ted Thompson has a good eye.
248. SEA – Kristjan Sokoli/DT Buffalo: Miscast as a nose tackle at Buffalo, best as a one-gapper. Incredible numbers at Pro Day. Great backstory. Native of Albania.
249. ATL – Josh Watson/DT Clemson: Beasley’s teammate. Rotational lineman but had a plus Pro Day. Ran a sub 5.0 40.
250. DEN – Mike Sadler/P Michigan St: First punter off the board. 45 career punts of 50+ yards in his four year career.
251. DEN – Chase Cochran/WR Ohio: Averaged 21.4 YPC in 2014. Like his size at 6’1, too.
252. DEN – Spencer Myers/OG Maryland: Former successful wrestler, love that background and ability to stay low. But serious project. DT in college.
253. NE – Quayshawne Buckley/DT Idaho: Underrated three tech. Hiding my Vandals’ fan bias.
254. SF – BJ Catalon/RB TCU: Versatility is his biggest calling card. Paul Hornug finalist in 2014. Runner and returner.
255. IND – Cody Riggs/CB Notre Dame: Florida transfer with 25 career starts and ran a 4.44 at his Pro Day.
256. ARI – Rhys Felton/P Carrol: Mr. Irrelevant is a punter. Went to Montana’s Pro Day and was extremely impressive.
