2015 NFL Draft Tracker



By Joseph Potter

Date: April 30, 2015





    1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jameis Winston, Quarterback, Florida State University

      Tampa combined 58% completion percentage and barely 1/1 Touchdown to interception ratio by the combined efforts of Quarterbacks Josh McCown and Mike Glennon make this pick the easiest in the draft. Jameis Winston has done what he has needed to do so far this off-season by keeping his head down and nose clean.

      Grade: A



    2. Tennessee Titans: Marcus Mariota, Quarterback, Oregon

      The Titans needed a leader and a player who can make plays. During the 2014 College Football Awards Ceremony Mariota won the Walter Camp Player of The Year award, the Maxwell Award for the nation’s most outstanding player, and the Davey O’Brien Award for the nation’s best Quarterback. Coach Wisenhunt hasn't won since Kurt Warner retired and Mariota could be their guy.

      Grade: A



    3. Jacksonville Jaguars: Dante Fowler Jr. Defensive End, Florida

      Dante Fowler is a finesse pass rusher who often has to deal with double teams, uses his hands well, flows to the ball fluidly, and can line up all over the field in the Joker position. Fowler is an athletic player who could be a dominant edge rusher within a few years.

      Grade: B+



    4. Oakland Raiders:: Amari Cooper, Wide Receiver, Alabama

      The Raiders took the best offensive player in this draft and this pick gets the first A+ in this draft. Cooper was a Heisman Trophy finalist, the SEC Offensive Player of the year, and shattered Iron Bowl records with 13 catches and 224 yards. GM Reggie McKenzie could save his job with a great draft and Cooper is a great start.

      Grade: A+



    5. Washington Redskins: Brandon Scherff, Offensive Tackle/Guard, Iowa

      This is a little high because of his tweener status but as far as need and player go it is an excellent selection. A surprising pick with a lot of potential to keep RGIII healthy.

      Grade: A-



    6. New York Jets: Leonard Williams, Defensive Tackle, USC
      This is a head scratching move because this is not a position of need. Unless they trade a defensive tackle I don't see a place for Williams. What saves this pick is the positional value as Williams is the best player available at this juncture..

      Grade: B+



    7. Chicago Bears: Kevin White, Wide Receiver, West Virginia

      Kevin White is a freakish Top 5 athlete with second round football skills. The Bears need a new receiver after trading away Brandon Marshal and get it here.

      GRADE: B+



    8. Atlanta Falcons: Vic Beasley, Defensive End, Clemson

      Beasley is a 34 Rush Linebacker with a narrow frame but immense talent and adaptability. I believe he is capable of putting on muscle, allowing him to transition to 43 Defensive End.

      Grade: A



    9. New York Giants: Ereck Flowers, Offensive Tackle, Miami (Fla)

      Ereck Flowers is strictly a right Tackle with great run blocking and poor pass protection ability. He was also someone I had 44 on my last big board. Not a good pick for GM Jerry Reese.

      Grade: C-



    10. St. Louis Rams: Todd Gurley, Running Back, Georgia

      This is a pick that makes me face-palm. The Rams didn't need a running back and Gurley's knee has been iffy as a few teams gave him an "F" grade physically. Gurley is just not a good pick at this point, poor value.

      Grade: D+



    11. Minnesota Vikings: Trae Waynes, Cornerback, Michigan State

      Waynes is a great pick at 11 as he is the best man corner in this draft. Rick Spielman continues his great three year run of draft picks.

      Grade: A



    12. Cleveland Browns: Danny Shelton, Defensive/Nose Tackle, Washington

      Danny Shelton is physically intimidating and has Top 5 talent. If the Browns can develop a mean streak in Shelton he can be a great pick. Shelton could potentially play Defensive Tackle and Nose Tackle.

      Grade: B+



    13. New Orleans Saints: Andrus Peat, Left Tackle, Stanford

      Andrus Peat is a smart player with a ton of potential. Peat will be an upgrade at Left Tackle and this is well within his range to be drafted.

      Grade: B+



    14. Miami Dolphins: DeVante Parker, Wide Receiver, Louisville

      DeVante Parker is a strong route runner, has good size, good hands, and is exceedingly athletic. If not for a foot injury early in the season we would be looking at Parker much more highly than most do.This is an excellent pick that will open up the passing and running game.

      Grade: A


    15. San Diego Chargers (f/San Francisco): Melvin Gordon, Running Back, Wisconsin

      Melvin Gordon is the best running back this year and have shown he can be a great one cut back. Gordon would be an A+ if the Chargers would have stayed put and not given up picks.

      Grade: A-



    16. Houston Texans: Kevin Johnson, Cornerback, Wake Forest

      Kevin Johnson is a talented player but this was way too high for him. Johnson may have a better transition than most players due to Houston's strong defense.

      Grade:C+



    17. San Francisco 49ers (F/San Diego): Arik Armstead, Defensive Tackle, Oregon

      This is way early for Armstead but he is a brick house who will not be a great player immediately but could be a great player in a few years -20 years old-.

      Grade: B



    18. Kansas City Chiefs: Marcus Peters, Cornerback, Washington

      One of the top two talented Cornerbacks in this draft being taken by a team who was burned deep too many times. Excellent pick for Kansas City.

      Grade: A-



    19. Cleveland Browns(F/ Buffalo): Cameron Erving, Guard/Center, Florida State

      If the Browns know something about Alex Mack's injury that we don't, that is the only way this pick makes sense. If Alex Mack gets traded this will get changed.

      Grade: C

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Danny Shelton, Nose Tackle



    20. Philadelphia Eagles: Nelson Agholor, Wide Receiver, USC

      Nelson Agholar is as solid as any receiver in this draft but he is not spectacular in any way. He is great at running after the catch.

      Grade: C



    21. Cincinnati Bengals: Cedric Ogbuehi, Left Tackle, Texas A&M

      Ogbuehi was the best offensive tackle on my board before a torn ACL ended his season. That said, a torn ACL is nothing to shake a stick at and he probably wont play in 2015. Ogbuehi has great technique and quick feet.

      Grade: B-



    22. Pittsburgh Steelers: Alvin Dupree, Rush Linebacker, Kentucky

      Alvin Dupree is a guy who lacks overall pass rush ability and relies on pure athletic ability. This is a poor choice and not something expected from the Steelers.

      Grade: D



    23. Denver Broncos (F/Detroit): Shane Ray, Rush Linebacker, Missouri

      This pick comes from a trade with Detroit and the Broncos would be a got a great deal. Shane Ray is my #2 player in this draft who falls due to a pot arrest.

      Grade: A-



    24. Arizona Cardinals: D.J Humphries, Offensive Tackle, Florida

      This is a good pick as Arizona needed a good, athletic offensive lineman. Humphries will start immediately and be a cornerstone of the Arizona offensive line.

      Grade: B



    25. Carolina Panthers: Shaq Thompson, Outside Linebacker/Safety, Washington

      This could be a great pick with Shaq Thompson. He is strong in coverage and adept at closing down outside running lanes. Thompson is a huge upgrade in coverage and great playmaker who could be a great fit.

      Grade: B+



    26. Baltimore Ravens: Brashad Perriman, Wide Receiver, Central Florida

      Perriman is a great pick as he is a Torrie Smith type player who is great down-field with great body control.

      Grade: A-



    27. Dallas Cowboys: Byron Jones, Cornerback, Connecticut

      I had Jones as a mid 2nd round to early 3rd round pick because he is strictly a zone Cornerback. Jones is a physical freak who has a load of potential but doesn't look like a first round pick on tape.

      Grade: B



    28. Detroit Lions (F/Denver): Laken Tomlinson, Guard, Duke

      Laken Tomlinson is an excellent pick for Detroit who needed interior offensive line help. Tomlinson has some of the best power and hands in the draft and may also be the most intelligent offensive lineman in the draft, double majoring in Evolutionary Anthropology and Psychology at Duke

      Grade: A



    29. Indianapolis Colts: Phillip Dorsett, Wide Receiver, Miami (Fla)

      This is high for Dorsett but his speed and separation fits the Colts' offense perfectly with TY Hilton and Andre Johnson. Perfect fit to the team that drafted him.

      Grade: B



    30. Green Bay Packers: Damarious Randall, Safety, Arizona State

      I don't understand taking an undersized safety when you need so much help elsewhere. However Randall is a great athlete and well rounded player.

      Grade: B-



    31. New Orleans Saints (f/Seattle): Stephone Anthony, Linebacker, Clemson

      Stephone Anthony is a strong player and great athlete. This pick is a little high and Anthony may have been available when the Saints picked in Round 2.

      Grade: B-

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1:



    32. New England Patriots: Malcom Brown, Defensive Tackle, Texas

      Malcom Brown is a great pick here as Brwon gets great penetration and athlete for a big player. I am concerned about his level of conditioning but Bellicheck should fix that.

      Grade: B+








    1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jameis Winston, Quarterback, Florida State               2. Tennessee Titans: Marcus Mariota, Quarterback, Oregon               3.
