Last update: Saturday, May 2, 2015. This is a 2015 NFL Mock Re-Draft of Rounds 4 and 5 for Saturday's NFL Draft coverage. With all of the trades that will go down, I don't expect to get many of these right, but it's still fun to speculate where the top prospects will go on Day 3 of the 2015 NFL Draft.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Dezmin Lewis, WR, Central Arkansas
Contrary to previous reports, it appears as though the Jaguars are done with Justin Blackmon. They could add a receiver in the first half of the 2015 NFL Draft as a consequence.
New York Jets: Brett Hundley, QB, UCLA
The Jets have a new front office, so they may want to bring in their own quarterback. Having Brett Hundley sit for a year or two would make sense.
Washington Redskins: Troy Hill, CB, Oregon
It's baffling as to why the Redskins haven't addressed their secondary yet. They do know that it's their biggest weakness, right?
Chicago Bears: Durell Eskridge, S, Syracuse
As with the Redskins, the Bears have made the mistake of not touching their poor defensive backfield yet.
Atlanta Falcons: Josh Shaw, S/CB, USC
The Falcons have some issues at safety, so they could be looking at an early- or mid-round pick to get some help at the position.
Tennessee Titans: David Cobb, RB, Minnesota
Bishop Sankey wasn't effective as a rookie, so the Titans could look to bring in another running back to challenge him.
Indianapolis Colts: Josue Matias, G, Florida State
The Colts better address the offensive line before Andrew Luck has a nervous breakdown worrying about his poor pass protection.
Minnesota Vikings: Mike Davis, RB, South Carolina
Adrian Peterson may not be back in Minnesota next year, so the Vikings may want to grab a third-day running back to pair with Jerick McKinnon just in case they find a trading partner.
New England Patriots: Jamil Douglas, G, Arizona State
As with the Colts, the Patriots need to make sure they fix their offensive line so they don't get their quarterback killed next season.
Washington Redskins: James Sample, S, Louisville
Another upgrade for the secondary. Both the cornerback and safety positions need to be addressed.
Philadelphia Eagles: Adrian Amos, S, Penn State
The Eagles have shown a ton of interest in Adrian Amos, who would help fill a huge need in their secondary. Amos is perfect for Philadelphia's defensive scheme.
Miami Dolphins: Anthony Chickillo, DE, Miami
Cameron Wake doesn't have very many great years left, while Olivier Vernon has an expiring contract next year.
Cleveland Browns: Tre McBride, WR, William & Mary
The Browns have to pick a receiver at some point, right? Right!?
Cleveland Browns: Ben Heeney, LB, Kansas =
The Browns may spend a third-day selection adding depth to their thin linebacking corps.
San Francisco 49ers: Stefon Diggs, WR, Maryland
Like the Browns, San Francisco has ignored one of its greatest positions of need.
Kansas City Chiefs: Lynden Trail, DE/DT, Norfolk State
Andy Reid loves to beef up both sides of the line of scrimmage, but he hasn't touched his defensive front yet.
St. Louis Rams: Ramik Wilson, ILB, Georgia
The Rams could spend a mid-round pick on a linebacker to provide some depth and competition at linebacker, which isn't exactly a strength.
Cincinnati Bengals: Justin Coleman, CB, Tennessee
The Bengals will be interested in some cornerback depth with Terence Newman no longer on the roster.
Pittsburgh Steelers: Jeremy Langford, RB, Michigan State
The Steelers have had success with a Michigan State running back, so why not draft another? Jeremy Langford is great in terms of pass protection, which is what Pittsburgh missed most when Le'Veon Bell went down.
Baltimore Ravens: Justin Cox, CB, Mississippi State
I'd be surprised that the Ravens haven't added a cornerback yet, but they've had all of these steals fall to them.
Arizona Cardinals: Mike Hull, ILB, Penn State
The Cardinals have had major issues covering tight ends the past two years. The main problem in this regard this past season was the inside linebacker position. Karlos Dansby and Daryl Washington were both missed. Sean Weatherspoon signed with Arizona, but he can't be counted on to stay healthy.
Carolina Panthers: Josh Robinson, RB, Mississippi State
Jonathan Stewart finished the year on a strong note, but the Panthers can't depend on him because he's so frequently banged up. With DeAngelo Williams officially gone, Carolina will have to add another running back.
Baltimore Ravens: Davis Tull, DE/OLB, UT-Chattanooga
The Ravens lost Pernell McPhee this offseason, so they could be looking to address their pass-rushing depth.
San Francisco 49ers: Cody Riggs, CB, Notre Dame
The 49ers lost multiple cornerbacks this offseason, so they'll have to address the position in the first half of the 2015 NFL Draft.
Dallas Cowboys: Christian Covington, DT, Rice
Dallas' defense was much better than anyone anticipated, but it was exposed during a stretch during the latter part of the season. There are still some weaknesses that need to be addressed - particularly in the interior of the defensive line, where Nick Hayden needs to be upgraded.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Cameron Artis-Payne, RB, Auburn
Yet another weapon for Jameis Winston. It's sounding like Doug Martin won't be on the team much longer.
Green Bay Packers: Leterrius Walton, DE/DT, Central Michigan
The Packers managed to re-sign both B.J. Raji and Letroy Guion - check the NFL Free Agent Signing Grades here - but they still need to address the defensive line at the five-technique position.
Seattle Seahawks: Grady Jarrett, DT, Clemson
The Seahawks were really missing Brandon Mebane. They need some help at defensive tackle, even once Mebane returns from his hamstring injury next year.
New England Patriots: Michael Bennett, DT, Ohio State
It must be noted that the Patriots have a number of players at the defensive tackle position heading into their contract years by the 2016 season, so this is a selection for the future.
San Francisco 49ers: Ben Koyack, TE, Notre Dame
Vernon Davis has just one year left on his contract, so he won't be around in San Francisco much longer. Vance McDonald, meanwhile, has been a disappointment. The 49ers may want to use a selection on a tight end.
Denver Broncos: Jake Ryan, LB, Michigan
The Broncos need linebacking depth for their new 3-4 defense.
Seattle Seahawks: Cody Prewitt, S, Ole Miss
The Seahawks lost a couple members of their secondary this offseason, so they could look to replenish depth in the middle rounds.
Cincinnati Bengals: Darren Waller, WR, Georgia Tech
It's time for the Bengals to stop drafting offensive tackles and start finding downfield threats for Andy Dalton.
Baltimore Ravens: Robert Myers, G/OT, Tennessee State
The Ravens don't have much depth on the interior of their offensive line, so they may use a mid-round selection on some help in that area.
@jsemmens I've been to the Big Board in the past, but it's still an inefficient way of going about a mock. Not to mention, reports and the people writing them change, no? I come to Walt's site because I used to like his insight on every player. Now, it's simply team needs and a very limited amount of actual analysis. You definitely need SOME amount of explanation behind a pick with regards to team need, but you need much more of the player evaluation angle. Any dummy can write why a particular team "needs" a specific position; it takes a pretty good eye to understand what player needs to fill it. Again, just my 2 cents.
@dawg66 I see where you're coming from. I really do. But I'm sure as a Browns fan you can understand, they have needs EVERYWHERE. You aren't gonna win a super bowl unless you have a QB. Case in point pretty much every super bowl winning quarterback ever. Second, yes you have Terrelle Pryor and Corey Coleman. Terrelle Pryor is a slot receiver which is gonna get you nowhere unless you play for New England. Corey Coleman has yet to prove a damn thing. Mike Williams, however, just took down Alabama pretty much BY HIMSELF. It's the right range for him and I'm positive Huge Jackson wouldn't pass over him at this point, meaning pre-combine and interviews.
Here's my mock based on team need, prospect value and prevailing opinion as well as some ideas of my own. Please let me know about the team(s) that you follow more closely, and any picks that you agree or disagree with. Please comment, and feel free to rate.
