2015 NFL Mock Draft 8.0 — Three-Rounds (includes team-by-team list)

Here it is: Xavier Cromartie’s  2015 NFL Mock Draft 8.0 — Three-Rounds (includes team-by-team list)

*Background info: Xavier Cromartie interview 

1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: QB Jameis Winston (Last = 1)

Intro: I always try to avoid personal bias in my mock drafts. But, for the record, the following are the 16 players that I personally would take with a first-round pick if I were a GM: (1) CB Byron Jones, (2) WR Breshad Perriman, (3) EDGE Vic Beasley, (4) EDGE Alvin Dupree, (5) WR Amari Cooper, (6) CB/S Eric Rowe, (7) EDGE Owamagbe Odighizuwa, (8) WR Kevin White, (9) EDGE Preston Smith, (10) OT Jake Fisher, (11) OT DJ Humphries, (12) C Cameron Erving, (13) G Brandon Scherff, (14) LB Steph Anthony, (15) EDGE Eli Harold, (16) EDGE Danielle Hunter.

2. Tennessee Titans: QB Marcus Mariota (Last = 2)

Again, it appears that Mariota will be the pick here, but the question is which team it will be. Cleveland and New Orleans are in the picture.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars: EDGE Vic Beasley (Last = 3)

While everyone blindly puts Dante Fowler here, in reality this pick will almost certainly be Beasley. Beasley is a much better Leo fit than Fowler.

4. Oakland Raiders: DT Leonard Williams (+) Last = 5

I believe that the Raiders prefer Williams and a round-2 WR. If they don’t get Williams, then look for Amari Cooper or a trade down.

5. Washington Pigskins: WR Amari Cooper (+) Last = 7

Another team could trade up for Cooper here, or Washington might take him as the best player available. Any mock draft that doesn’t put Cooper in the 4-7 range has no credibility. He’s not falling to 10-14.

6. New York Jets: EDGE Dante Fowler (Last = 6)

They would probably be happy with either Fowler or Cooper.

7. Chicago Bears: WR Kevin White (–) Last = 4

The Bears will take Cooper or White if available.

8. Atlanta Falcons: EDGE Alvin Dupree (+) Last = 9

Dupree’s only downside is arm length. The Falcons are looking for an athletic EDGE guy… not a Shane Ray.

9. New York Giants: EDGE Randy Gregory (–) Last = 8

Teams knew about Gregory’s issues already. I think now everyone is badmouthing him in hopes that he’ll slide. The Giants are likely going with the best defensive talent available… It’s not going to be Landon Collins.

10. St Louis Rams: G Brandon Scherff (+) Last = 14

He is considered the top OL in the draft.

11. Minnesota Vikings: CB Trae Waynes (+) Last = 22

The Vikings are hot for all the top CBs and it looks like Waynes is their first choice.

12. Cleveland Browns: WR DeVante Parker (+) Last = 19

The Browns love overhyped players.

13. New Orleans Saints: EDGE Shane Ray (+) Last = 31

Scouts love the tape. I’m not saying that I agree with the pick.

14. Miami Dolphins: WR Dorial Green-Beckham (–) Last = 13

It’s assumed that they’re looking for a WR, and I think they’ll take the chance on him.

15. San Francisco 49ers: CB Marcus Peters (–) Last = 11

Teams think he’s the best CB. I doubt he gets out of round 1. He is a Bay Area product.

16. Houston Texans: WR Breshad Perriman (+) Last = 48

He has the production to go with his ridiculous speed.

17. San Diego Chargers: DT Malcom Brown (+) Last = 21

The flaw with thinking that Gurley will go here: don’t you think the Chargers are tired of dealing with injured RBs?

18. Kansas City Chiefs: C Cameron Erving (+) Last = 36

I feel OL is still the likely pick here. They need a C and Erving is considered one of the best OL in the draft despite his position.

19. Cleveland Browns: NT Danny Shelton (–) Last = 12

Shelton’s appeal is fading, but the Browns need a big man and are interested.

20. Philadelphia Eagles: CB Byron Jones (–) Last = 16

I find it very difficult to see any way they pass on such an amazing athlete.

21. Cincinnati Bengals: LT DJ Humphries (+) Last = 25

They need to consider the future at OT.

22. Pittsburgh Steelers: CB Ronald Darby (–) Last = 15

Regardless of where mock drafters put him, the reality is that the NFL thinks highly of him.

23. Detroit Lions: RB Todd Gurley (–) Last = 17

I’ve always thought that they are the team most likely to think that they’re only a ‘special’ RB away from becoming a contender.

24. Arizona Cardinals: NT Jordan Phillips (+) Last = 55

Like with Shelton, the rarity of NTs pushes him into the first round.

25. Carolina Panthers: RT Ereck Flowers (–) Last = 10

You are required to put an OL here.

26. Baltimore Ravens: S Landon Collins (Last = 26)

A typical Ravens value defender.

27. Dallas Cowboys: RB Melvin Gordon (–) Last = 23

They are obviously drafting a RB at some point.

28. Denver Broncos: RT Jake Fisher (Last = 28)

Kubiak has to like his athleticism.

29. Indianapolis Colts: OT Andrus Peat (Last = 29)

Value pick to upgrade the OL.

30. Green Bay Packers: LB Stephone Anthony (Last = 30)

Lots of chatter for Kendricks and Anthony here.

31. New Orleans Saints: WR Phillip Dorsett (+) Last = 37

Might seem like a surprise pick to some. Dorsett should be in the late-first conversation.

32. New England Patriots: CB Kevin Johnson (Last = 32)

They lost some CBs.
