2015 NFL Draft
Pick Team Player Shutdown Corner Commentary
1 (33) NY Giants Landon Collins
Landon Collins
SS
Height:
6-0
Weight:
228
School:
Alabama
Rotoworld Rank:
21

Collins was projected as a first-round pick by media outlets, but he's limited in coverage and is a better fit here, for the safety-needy Giants. (From Titans)

2 (34) Tampa Bay Donovan Smith
Donovan Smith
OT
Height:
6-6
Weight:
338
School:
Penn State
Rotoworld Rank:
83

A massive man with Pro Bowl potential, Smith's motor does not always run hot and there's some question if he has the pass-blocking prowess to make it.

3 (35) Oakland Mario Edwards Jr.
Mario Edwards Jr.
DT
Height:
6-3
Weight:
279
School:
Florida State
Rotoworld Rank:
92

Opposite Khalil Mack, the Raiders opt for a power end who can kick inside on passing downs, but his 2014 tape was sluggish and uninspiring. The talent is there, though, for the one-time top high-school prospect in the country.

4 (36) Jacksonville T.J.  Yeldon
T.J. Yeldon
RB
Height:
6-1
Weight:
226
School:
Alabama
Rotoworld Rank:
37

Gus Bradley continues building his Seattle South team by adding a one-dimensional, powerful, violent runner with a fumbling habit.

5 (37) NY Jets Devin Smith
Devin Smith
WR
Height:
6-0
Weight:
196
School:
Ohio State
Rotoworld Rank:
42

The excuses are running out for Geno Smith, who adds one of the best vertical threats in the game and far different-looking WR corps from last season. Devin Smith also could be an excellent gunner, adding special-teams value.

6 (38) Washington Preston Smith
Preston Smith
DE
Height:
6-5
Weight:
271
School:
Mississippi State
Rotoworld Rank:
13

The surprise is that they introduced Smith as a linebacker, which means he will play on his feet in the Redskins' 3-4 scheme. With a body frame that can take up to 290 pounds (he played in the 270s) this is a surprise, but moves very well for that size.

7 (39) Chicago Eddie Goldman
Eddie Goldman
DT
Height:
6-4
Weight:
336
School:
Florida State
Rotoworld Rank:
70

The Bears strike gold in Round 2 with a massive nose tackle with great strength and movement skills, a perfect fit in Vic Fangio's defense and an instant upgrade over the current crop. They had only one nose (Jeremiah Ratliff) on the roster.

8 (40) Tennessee Dorial Green-Beckham
Dorial Green-Beckham
WR
Height:
6-5
Weight:
237
School:
Oklahoma
Rotoworld Rank:
14

Fascinating target for Marcus Mariota to throw to. DGB is a top-10 talent but an immature young man who needs guidance. A fascinating mix. (From Giants)

9 (41) Carolina Devin Funchess
Devin Funchess
TE
Height:
6-4
Weight:
232
School:
Michigan
Rotoworld Rank:
41

For the second straight year, the Panthers take a big-framed target high in the draft, and they trade up here to do so. Funchess was maddeningly inconsistent — as Kelvin Benjamin was — in college but has rare skills to go up and get the ball. (From Rams)

10 (42) Atlanta Jalen Collins
Jalen Collins
CB
Height:
6-1
Weight:
203
School:
LSU
Rotoworld Rank:
86

The Falcons stand pat and take the inexperienced (10 college starts), long-armed and super athletic Collins to add size to their secondary. He dropped a ton of interceptions in college but fits the Dan Quinn/Seattle Seahawks mold of corner.

11 (43) Houston Benardrick McKinney
Benardrick McKinney
ILB
Height:
6-4
Weight:
246
School:
Mississippi State
Rotoworld Rank:
45

The Texans move up eight spots for McKinney, a tone-setting thumper who should be a nice versatile player for Romeo Crennel. He's likely a Day 1 starter next to Brian Cushing, if he's healthy. (From Browns)

12 (44) New Orleans Hau'oli Kikaha
Hau'oli Kikaha
OLB
Height:
6-2
Weight:
253
School:
Washington
Rotoworld Rank:
61

A slow-footed, high-motor, productive playmaker, Kikaha lived in opposing backfields the past two seasons after tearing his ACL in 2012. Scouts nicked him for his poor athletic testing numbers, but forget that: he passes the eye test on film.

13 (45) Minnesota Eric Kendricks
Eric Kendricks
ILB
Height:
6-0
Weight:
232
School:
UCLA
Rotoworld Rank:
7

Anthony Barr will be reunited with his college teammate in Kendricks, who likely endeared himself to Vikings coach Mike Zimmer with his relentless motor and sideline-to-sideline range. A fantastic pick who could vastly outplay his draft position.

14 (46) San Francisco Jaquiski Tartt
Jaquiski Tartt
SS
Height:
6-1
Weight:
221
School:
Samford
Rotoworld Rank:
115

Since the end of the season, Tartt has bubbled up with a strong display of his competitive, athletic and power-hitting skills, so it's no surprise he'd go in this range. But are the 49ers good with what they have on offense?

15 (47) Philadelphia Eric Rowe
Eric Rowe
CB
Height:
6-1
Weight:
205
School:
Utah
Rotoworld Rank:
40

The Eagles trade up five slots to nab a long-levered defensive back who is capable of playing safety (which he played his first three seasons) or corner (which he played as a senior). Scouts were mixed on him, citing his lack of play-making ability, but he runs well and can play press-man coverage. (From Dolphins)

16 (48) San Diego Denzel Perryman
Denzel Perryman
ILB
Height:
5-11
Weight:
236
School:
Miami (FL)
Rotoworld Rank:
125

The Chargers draft a sawed-off, old-school, two-down thumper inside who could replace Donald Butler and line up next to Manti Te'o. Perryman is a tone setter who can wake up a crowd with a huge hit.

17 (49) Kansas City Mitch Morse
Mitch Morse
OG
Height:
6-5
Weight:
305
School:
Missouri
Rotoworld Rank:
142

Morse played center and tackle in college but projects most easily inside, perhaps to guard. He's short-armed and not the most athletic interior player, but he has strength, grit and versatility.

18 (50) Buffalo Ronald Darby
Ronald Darby
CB
Height:
5-11
Weight:
193
School:
Florida State
Rotoworld Rank:
88

Sans a first-round pick, the Bills wait and land a physical, fast, press corner and a heck of an explosive athlete despite size limitations. He can contribute immediately in an OK but not great Bills secondary.

19 (51) Cleveland Nate Orchard
Nate Orchard
DE
Height:
6-3
Weight:
250
School:
Utah
Rotoworld Rank:
121

A high-effort, long-armed rusher who can convert speed to power and is able to consistently live in the backfield despite elite speed and athletic traits. Just a good football player, and the Browns now have made three safe, solid picks. What a novel idea! (From Texans)

20 (52) Miami Jordan  Phillips
Jordan Phillips
DT
Height:
6-5
Weight:
329
School:
Oklahoma
Rotoworld Rank:
72

Trading back, the Dolphins get a massive, country-strong nose tackle who can play too upright but has the power and quick feet to dominate if he stays conditioned and focused. A complete opposite style of nose tackle from incumbent starter Earl Mitchell, an undersized plugger. (From Eagles)

21 (53) Cincinnati Jake  Fisher
Jake Fisher
OT
Height:
6-6
Weight:
306
School:
Oregon
Rotoworld Rank:
30

The Bengals take back-to-back tackles in Rounds 1 and 2, both athletically gifted players. Fisher was too flag-happy in his career but has elite feet and good toughness. He can be a right tackle, and a good one in time.

22 (54) Detroit Ameer Abdullah
Ameer Abdullah
RB
Height:
5-9
Weight:
205
School:
Nebraska
Rotoworld Rank:
34

Like Reggie Bush, Abdullah is a shifty slasher who does his best work in space, but he also is tough and strong. There are worries about his fumbling and how he might hold up physically over the course of a season.

23 (55) Baltimore Maxx Williams
Maxx Williams
TE
Height:
6-4
Weight:
249
School:
Minnesota
Rotoworld Rank:
28

The Ravens now have added two potentially great pass catchers to the mix in Rounds 1 and 2, with the 20-year-old Williams a Todd Heap clone. Williams needs time in the weight room and doesn't separate exceptionally well, but he's the best all-around tight end in the draft. A terrific value this late in Round 2. (From Cardinals)

24 (56) Pittsburgh Senquez Golson
Senquez Golson
CB
Height:
5-9
Weight:
176
School:
Mississippi
Rotoworld Rank:
144

A lack of ideal size is the only real knock on Golson, who is a highly active, ball-hawking, tough and instinctive playmaker. The Steelers' defensive makeover is well underway with Bud Dupree and Golson.

25 (57) St. Louis
Rob Havenstein
OT
Height:
6-6
Weight:
321
School:
Wisconsin
Rotoworld Rank:
149

A big, stiff, nasty mauler of a right tackle, Havenstein won't win any agility contests. He was among the slower testers at the combine in the movement drills — but immediately can come in and start as a road-grading escort for Todd Gurley. The Rams have gotten more powerful in this draft. (From Panthers)

26 (58) Arizona Markus Golden
Markus Golden
DE
Height:
6-2
Weight:
260
School:
Missouri
Rotoworld Rank:
123

A spirited, smart, competitive wood chopper of a strong-side rusher, Golden is a perfect fit coming off the edge and chasing down runners from behind. He's a far better football player than a combine tester and was overshadowed at Mizzou by Shane Ray. (From Ravens)

27 (59) Denver Ty Sambrailo
Ty Sambrailo
OT
Height:
6-6
Weight:
311
School:
Colorado State
Rotoworld Rank:
131

His versatility makes him interesting, but the local product Sambrailo is a soft, underdeveloped player with light feet but no clear-cut position. He's an enigma but has upside if he can get stronger. His future might be at guard.

28 (60) Dallas Randy Gregory
Randy Gregory
OLB
Height:
6-5
Weight:
235
School:
Nebraska
Rotoworld Rank:
8

Gregory is a fantastic pass rusher with top-10 talent. Off-field issues caused a severe drop in the draft. But Dallas gets a very talented edge rusher if he can stay focused.

29 (61) Tampa Bay
Alexander Marpet
C
Height:
6-4
Weight:
307
School:
Hobart College
Rotoworld Rank:
65

Marpet comes from tiny Hobart College, but impressed at the Senior Bowl and combine, where he ran the 40 in less than five seconds. He played left tackle in college but could play guard or tackle in the NFL. (From Colts)

30 (62) Green Bay Quinten Rollins
Quinten Rollins
CB
Height:
5-11
Weight:
195
School:
Miami (OH)
Rotoworld Rank:
73

Rollins was a basketball player at Miami (Ohio), then played college football for the first time as a fifth-year senior and had seven interceptions. The point guard's 391 assists are fourth in school history.

31 (63) Seattle Frank  Clark
Frank Clark
DE
Height:
6-3
Weight:
271
School:
Michigan
Rotoworld Rank:
48

Clark is a talented end but comes with baggage. He was kicked off Michigan's team last November after he was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence. He eventually pled guilty to disorderly conduct.

32 (64) New England
Jordan Richards
SS
Height:
5-11
Weight:
211
School:
Stanford

Richards is a physical safety who is also versatile, and he should fit in well in the Patriots' defense.
