year round NFL draft coverage... for the real fan

2015 NFL Mock Draft – Picks 17-32

17. Falcons – Shaq Lawson – DE – Clemson
falconsIf any of the top pass-rushers are on the board, it will be very difficult for the Falcons to justify any other selection.


18. Colts – Jack Conklin – OT – Michigan State
coltsAdding another weapon like Ezekiel Elliott is very tempting, but protecting Andrew Luck has to be the priority this offseason.


19. Bills – Robert Nkemdiche – DL – Ole Miss
billsIt’s impossible to predict how teams will view Nkemdiche off the field. He’ll likely be removed from some boards. But Rex Ryan is a gambler and could come away with a top-five talent.


20. Jets – Ezekiel Elliott – RB – Ohio State
jetsThe Jets can survive without drafting an early running back, but if Elliott is one the board he’ll be tough to pass up.


21. Redskins – Mackensie Alexander – CB – Clemson
redskinsIf any of the top corners fall, the Redskins have to jump at the chance to bring them aboard.


22. Texans – Andrew Billings – DT – Baylor
texansBillings would be a perfect fit for the Vince Wilfork role in the Texans defense. Like a young Wilfork, he’s a special athlete for his size.


23. Vikings – Darron Lee – LB – Ohio State
vikingsIf Chad Greenway returns maybe this isn’t a need to address yet. But Lee would be an ideal replacement at weak-side linebacker.


24. Bengals – Laquon Treadwell – WR – Ole Miss
bengalsThis WR class is vastly overrated and some prospects could fall (maybe even all of them). Sanu and Jones are both free agents and it will cost too much to re-sign both.


25. Steelers – Hunter Henry – TE – Arkansas
Heath Miller is still an asset, but not a difference-maker. Hunter Henry is not much of a blocker (maybe the Steelers won’t like him for that reason) but he’s the best receiver at TE in this class.


26. Seahawks – Eli Apple – CB – Ohio State
seahawksSeattle’s secondary depth has taken a huge hit as teams have poached their talent in recent years. Apple has the length Seattle likes at the position.


27. Packers – Vernon Butler – DT – Louisiana Tech
packersButler fits the mold of the versatile defensive lineman the Packers like to target. It’s not a glaring need, but the value works well.


28. Chiefs – Corey Coleman – WR – Baylor
Maybe they’ll view Coleman as too similar to Maclin, but I think he’s much better at competing for balls in traffic, making him a more well-rounded receiver.


29. Cardinals – Leonard Floyd – LB – Georgia
I don’t love Floyd as an outside linebacker in the 3-4 but the fact that he’s undersized won’t scare the Cardinals.


30. Broncos – Jason Spriggs – OT – Indiana
Improving the protection around Manning and/or Osweiler is a top priority for the Broncos this offseason.


31. Panthers – Braxton Miller – WR – Ohio State
panthersAs good as the Panthers offense has been, they still need to add more talent. Can’t count on Ginn and Cotchery to continue to produce.


Picks 1-16 – Picks 17-32
