2015 NFL Draft
Pick Team Player Shutdown Corner Commentary
1 (65) Indianapolis
D'Joun Smith
CB
Height:
5-10
Weight:
187
School:
Florida Atlantic

Smith is not a big corner but he's very fast and quick. It's easy to see him making an immediate contribution lining up against slot receivers. (From Bucs)

2 (66) Tennessee Jeremiah Poutasi
Jeremiah Poutasi
OG
Height:
6-5
Weight:
335
School:
Utah
Rotoworld Rank:
84

Poutasi is a huge, 335-pounder who played left tackle at Utah, but seems like a perfect fit at right tackle with the Titans.

3 (67) Jacksonville A.J.  Cann
A.J. Cann
OG
Height:
6-3
Weight:
313
School:
South Carolina
Rotoworld Rank:
66

SEC coaches routinely singled out Cann as one of the toughest interior linemen they faced. The very experienced, tough, surely built Cann is a textbook guard — athletically limited but a force in the run game. A safe, smart pick for a team seeking to build a foundation.

4 (68) Oakland Clive Walford
Clive Walford
TE
Height:
6-4
Weight:
251
School:
Miami (FL)
Rotoworld Rank:
69

Good receiving ability and athleticism should make him a nice upgrade at a need position. Derek Carr now gets his second good receiving option in this draft, along with Amari Cooper. Walford is a poor blocker and did not impress teams with how he interviewed the past few months.

5 (69) Seattle Tyler Lockett
Tyler Lockett
WR
Height:
5-10
Weight:
182
School:
Kansas State
Rotoworld Rank:
56

The Seahawks trade way up from the bottom of the round to land one of the quickest slot receivers in the draft. Lockett has exceptional college production, can wiggle away from tight coverage and has great return ability, too. (From Redskins)

6 (70) Houston Jaelen  Strong
Jaelen Strong
WR
Height:
6-2
Weight:
217
School:
Arizona State
Rotoworld Rank:
82

High-point receiver with some nagging injury concerns but some good speed, great competitiveness and complementary skills to be a contributor. With the ball in the air, Strong can go get it, but he's not a burner. (From Jets)

7 (71) Chicago Hroniss Grasu
Hroniss Grasu
C
Height:
6-3
Weight:
297
School:
Oregon
Rotoworld Rank:
103

The Bears moved on from Roberto Garza and needed a replacement at center, where Grasu is undersized but smart, competitive, athletic and an efficient mover. He lined up next to Kyle Long for the Ducks and could do so as an early starter with the Bears, too.

8 (72) St. Louis
Jamon Brown
OT
Height:
6-4
Weight:
323
School:
Louisville

Another mauler for Jeff Fisher. Notice a trend the first three Rams picks? An emphasis on power and mass. They want to run the ball, run it with authority and Brown can be a good fit inside with his size, punch and strength.

9 (73) Atlanta Tevin Coleman
Tevin Coleman
RB
Height:
5-11
Weight:
206
School:
Indiana
Rotoworld Rank:
64

Nicknamed "Rock," Coleman is not shifty but has good speed, home-run potential and runs with good power inside or to the edge. He consistently cranked out incredible production on a weekly basis for the Hoosiers despite a brutal O-line, mostly bad QB play and Big Ten defenses stacked to stop him.

10 (74) NY Giants Owamagbe Odighizuwa
Owamagbe Odighizuwa
DE
Height:
6-3
Weight:
267
School:
UCLA
Rotoworld Rank:
17

Highly athletic rusher who can develop on a team that has cultivated rush talent well historically. He needs some growth as a player, but he's a rare horse.

11 (75) New Orleans Garrett Grayson
Garrett Grayson
QB
Height:
6-2
Weight:
213
School:
Colorado State
Rotoworld Rank:
160

Grayson can sit and learn behind Drew Brees, which should be great for his development. He's an athletic quarterback with an NFL arm, and has a chance to become a starter down the road.

12 (76) Kansas City Chris Conley
Chris Conley
WR
Height:
6-2
Weight:
213
School:
Georgia
Rotoworld Rank:
112

Conley had an amazing workout at the NFL combine, and the Chiefs traded up to get him. He wasn't even honorable mention all-SEC but his 4.35-second 40-yard dash and 45-inch vertical leap obviously got Kansas City's attention. (From Vikings)

13 (77) Cleveland Duke Johnson
Duke Johnson
RB
Height:
5-9
Weight:
207
School:
Miami (FL)
Rotoworld Rank:
63

Johnson is a high-energy inside and outside rusher who squeezes out every last yard and has more burst than he's given credit for. He'll push young RBs Terrence West and Isaiah Crowell and make an impact as a tough, competitive grinder with burst.

14 (78) New Orleans P.J.  Williams
P.J. Williams
CB
Height:
6-0
Weight:
194
School:
Florida State
Rotoworld Rank:
85

Williams, from Florida State, has good size for a corner but has off-field issues. He was arrested in early April on suspicion of DUI but charges were recently dropped due to lack of evidence. (From Dolphins)

15 (79) San Francisco Eli Harold
Eli Harold
OLB
Height:
6-3
Weight:
247
School:
Virginia
Rotoworld Rank:
60

Harold slipped a bit in the draft, but what the 49ers get is some depth for their depleted linebacking corps and a player who can be a quality pass rusher off the edge.

16 (80) Detroit Alex Carter
Alex Carter
CB
Height:
6-0
Weight:
196
School:
Stanford
Rotoworld Rank:
148

Carter is a big and athletic cornerback, but he could end up at safety in the pros. (From Vikings through Chiefs)

17 (81) Buffalo John Miller
John Miller
OG
Height:
6-2
Weight:
303
School:
Louisville
Rotoworld Rank:
58

Miller isn't a great athlete, but he is big and powerful. He could help the Bills, who have a need on the interior of the line, early in his career.

18 (82) NY Jets
Lorenzo Mauldin
OLB
Height:
6-4
Weight:
259
School:
Louisville
Rotoworld Rank:
150

Overcoming adversity, Mauldin has made himself into a nice functional 3-4 stand-up rusher. He is a limited athlete but plays with an edge and can make plays in the backfield. (From Texans)

19 (83) San Diego Craig Mager
Craig Mager
CB
Height:
5-11
Weight:
201
School:
Texas State
Rotoworld Rank:
100

Amazing that the first player from a Texas college comes from the Bobcats, but Mager is not a reach here. He has nice size, good ball skills and great short-area burst to handle underneath routes. This is a very intriguing sleeper pick if he can overcome his short arms and lack of big-school experience.

20 (84) Philadelphia Jordan  Hicks
Jordan Hicks
OLB
Height:
6-1
Weight:
236
School:
Texas
Rotoworld Rank:
119

Just what the Eagles need, more inside linebackers. Hicks sprung up as a senior after a non-descript career to that point, and he's not considered a big thumper. But his coverage skills and competitive spirit are considered strengths.

21 (85) Cincinnati Tyler Kroft
Tyler Kroft
TE
Height:
6-5
Weight:
246
School:
Rutgers
Rotoworld Rank:
114

With bad QB play, Kroft was not able to show just how good a receiver he can be. Despite a lack of explosive athleticism, Kroft has a nice frame, solid blocking ability and soft hands.

22 (86) Arizona David Johnson
David Johnson
RB
Height:
6-1
Weight:
224
School:
Northern Iowa
Rotoworld Rank:
96

Bruce Arians was seeking a bigger-framed back, and Johnson fits the bill. He can run with power but also has exceptional receiving skills and might be a bit of a poor man's Matt Forte. This could be exceptional value here on Johnson.

23 (87) Pittsburgh Sammie Coates
Sammie Coates
WR
Height:
6-1
Weight:
212
School:
Auburn
Rotoworld Rank:
62

The Steelers struck mid-round gold a year ago on Martavis Bryant, and Coates has a similar makeup with size, great vertical speed and some technical flaws that can be fixed. Coates needs to diversify his route tree, but he has upside.

24 (88) Minnesota Danielle Hunter
Danielle Hunter
DE
Height:
6-5
Weight:
252
School:
LSU
Rotoworld Rank:
77

Mike Zimmer now has a raw, wiry, high-effort player with a high ceiling but concerns about his run-stopping ability. Some scouts also have questioned whether Hunter has great diagnostic skills on the field. (From Lions)

25 (89) St. Louis Sean Mannion
Sean Mannion
QB
Height:
6-6
Weight:
229
School:
Oregon State
Rotoworld Rank:
203

The fourth QB off the board — who is not named Bryce Petty — is a heavy-footed pocket passer who, like Jameis Winston, played far better in 2013 than in 2014. Mannion has an odd delivery but functional arm strength and great intelligence, along with experience in a pro-style offense. (From Panthers)

26 (90) Baltimore Carl  Davis
Carl Davis
DT
Height:
6-5
Weight:
320
School:
Iowa
Rotoworld Rank:
51

The Ravens love bulk in their D-linemen, and Davis has it, but he also has surprising quickness, explosion and rare strength. Does he always play with a hot motor? No, but if the Ravens staff can coax it out of him more consistently they could have a real find.

27 (91) Dallas
Chaz Green
OT
Height:
6-5
Weight:
314
School:
Florida

With several interesting running backs still on the board, the Cowboys instead pad their great O-line with depth. Green is big and versatile but hasn't stayed healthy. This feels like a reach.

28 (92) Denver Jeff Heuerman
Jeff Heuerman
TE
Height:
6-5
Weight:
254
School:
Ohio State
Rotoworld Rank:
113

If you go back and look at his 2013 tape, Heuerman looks like a great blocker with the potential to be a solid No. 2 receiving tight end. He has good strength and smarts but has had a hard time staying fully healthy.

29 (93) Indianapolis Henry Anderson
Henry Anderson
DE
Height:
6-6
Weight:
294
School:
Stanford
Rotoworld Rank:
12

A 5-technique who fits their scheme, Anderson is a long, high-effort, smart player with inflated sack stats that likely won't translate to the NFL.

30 (94) Green Bay
Ty Montgomery
WR
Height:
6-0
Weight:
221
School:
Stanford
Rotoworld Rank:
175

Montgomery can do a lot of things pretty well, none very well. He has Randall Cobb-like versatility as a runner, receiver and returner, but Montgomery has nowhere near Cobb's explosion and just drops too many passes.

31 (95) Washington Matt Jones
Matt Jones
RB
Height:
6-2
Weight:
231
School:
Florida
Rotoworld Rank:
127

Jones runs with power and purpose and might be a contributor given his size and Jay Gruden's desire to have a power run game. Jones' creaky knees and inconsistent effort are worries. (From Seahawks)

32 (96) Cleveland Xavier Cooper
Xavier Cooper
DT
Height:
6-3
Weight:
293
School:
Washington State
Rotoworld Rank:
71

An underclassman who bubbled up as the draft process developed, Cooper's penetration skills caught scouts' eyes. He has good strength but is still an unrefined talent. (From Patriots)

33 (97) New England
Geneo Grissom
DE
Height:
6-3
Weight:
262
School:
Oklahoma

A man without a home in college, Grissom has played every spot on the defensive line and even tight end and never looked dominant at any of them. But he flashed enough ability as a rusher and has strong athleticism and versatility.

34 (98) Kansas City Steven Nelson
Steven Nelson
CB
Height:
5-10
Weight:
187
School:
Oregon State
Rotoworld Rank:
89

A well-built cover corner who has started for four years and matched up with quality Pac-12 receivers effectively. Nelson might be short, but he's competitive and strong.

35 (99) Cincinnati Paul Dawson
Paul Dawson
ILB
Height:
6-0
Weight:
235
School:
TCU
Rotoworld Rank:
29

Classic Bengals fit. Much like Vontaze Burfict coming out, Dawson is undisciplined and underathletic, but he plays with great instincts and might freelance for some coaches' liking. That said, all the guy does is make plays despite slow foot speed.
