2015 NFL Draft Tracker



By Joseph Potter

Date: April 30, 2015





    1. (65) Indianapolis Colts (F/Tampa Bay): D'Juan Smith, Cornerback, Florida Atlantic:

      The Colts were in need of a good Corner as most of their defensive backfield is as strong as wet tissue paper. Smith is a decent cover man that is gritty in the run game and should be able to upgrade the Colts quickly.

      Grade: C+

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Phillip Dorsett, Wide Receiver



    2. (66) Tennessee Titans: Jeremiah Poutasi, Offensive Tackle, Utah

      Poutasi is a nice prospect with good athleticism but has some flaws in his game fundamentally. If Tennessee can straighten out some of his issues early he could start at Right Tackle some time this season.

      Grade: C-

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Marcus Mariota, Quarterback
                              Round 2: Dorial Green Beckham, Wide Receiver



    3. (67) Jacksonville Jaguars: A.J Cann, Guard, South Carolina

      A.J Cann may have not have asked to be drafted by Jacksonville but he may not have been able to find himself in a better position. Cann is good in all fascets of the game and will be a backup early in his career before blocking for one of the better developing quarterbacks in the NFL. Not a bad gig.

      Grade: B

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Dante Fowler Jr, Defensive End
                              Round 2: T.J Yeldon, Running Back



    4. (68) Oakland Raiders:: Clive Walfard, Tight End, Miami (Fla)

      Clive Walford may not look fast with the ball in his hands but he finds a way to outrun smaller defenders, has good hands, and blocks better than any tight end in this draft. He should start when training camp opens.

      Grade: A

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Amari Cooper, Wide Receiver
                              Round 2: Mario Edwards Jr, Defensive Tackle



    5. (69) (Seattle Seahawks (F/Washington): Tyler Lockett, Wide Receiver, Kansas State

      Tyler Locket has great hands, is a good route runner, and has a great character. Lockett is likable off the field as well. Good character and good play makes Lockett an instant commodity.

      Grade: B

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 2: Frank Clark, Defensive End



    6. (70) Houston Texans (F/New York Jets): Jaelen Strong, Wide Receiver, Arizona State

      Jaelen Strong has the biggest body of any top receiver in this draft -6'3, 215 pounds- and immense athletic ability. Strong needs refinement on his route running and technique.

      Grade: A+

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Leonard Williams, Defensive Tackle
                              Round 2: Mario Edwards Jr, Defensive End



    7. (71) Chicago Bears: Hronis Grasu, Center, Oregon

      Hroniss Grasu is the top center prospect in this draft. If not for an injury he may have been a first round selection. Grasu is an excellent leader on the offensive line.

      GRADE: A-

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Kevin White, Wide Receiver
                              Round 2: Eddie Goldman, Defensive Tackle



    8. (72) St. Louis Rams: Jamon Brown, Offensive Tackle, Louisville

      More help up front for the Rams. Brown is a mauling run blocker that has a tendency to play off balance or lost in space. He needs to work on awareness but should be an asset from the start of mini-camp.

      Grade: C

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Todd Gurley, Running Back
                              Round 2: Rob Havenstein, Offensive Tackle



    9. (73) Atlanta Falcons: Tevin Coleman, Running Back, Indiana

      Tevin Coleman is one of the most explosive running backs to come around in the past couple years. Coleman relies on speed and has one gear, fast. This makes hiom impatient at times and creates timing issues with his offensive line.

      Grade: B

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Vic Beasley, Defensive End
                              Round 2:Jalen Collins, Cornerback



    10. (74) New York Giants: Owamagbe Odighizuwa, Defensive End, UCLA

      A solid pass rusher that had a productive career at UCLA but was taken too high. Poor range for an otherwise solid player. Grade: C

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Ereck Flowers, Offensive Tackle
                              Round 2: Landon Collins, Safety



    11. (75) New Orleans Saints: Garrett Grayson, Quarterback, Colorado State

      Garrett Grayson had a great interview/workout period that vaulted him up some draft boards. Grayson will sit and learn from Drew Brees.

      Grade: B+

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Andrus Peat, Left Tackle
                              Round 1: Stephone Anthony, Linebacker
                              Round 2: Hau'oli Kikaha, Rush Linebacker



    12. (76) Kansas City Chiefss: Chris Conley, Wide Receiver, Georgia

      Chris Conley is a big bodied receiver with big hands and great route running ability. He could instantly start for Kansas City.

      Grade: B+

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Trae Waynes, Cornerback
                              Round 2: Erick Kendricks, Middle Linebacker



    13. (77) Cleveland Browns: Duke Johnson, Running Back, Miami (Fla)

      The Browns got their new starting running back in Duke Johnson. Johnson is a shifty back who excels in the zone blocking scheme, and has good strength. Johnson is also the all time leading rusher at the University of Miami. Terrance West may be out in the cold after next year if he doesn't pick up his game.

      Grade: A+

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Danny Shelton, Defensive/Nose Tackle
                              Round 1: Cameron Erving, Guard/Center
                              Round 2: Nate Orchard, Rush Linebacker



    14. (78) New Orleans Saints (F/Miami): P.J Williams, Cornerback, Florida State

      P.J Williams is excellent in press coverage and has the height (6’1) and length to cover bigger receivers with first round talent. He is an aggressive, long armed corner who plays the bump and run extremely well. Williams falls due to an arrest late in the draft process.

      Grade: A

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Andrus Peat, Left Tackle
                              Round 1: Stephone Anthony, Linebacker
                              Round 2: Hau'oli Kikaha, Rush Linebacker
                              Round 3: Garrett Grayson, Quarterback



    15. (79) San Francisco 49ers: Eli Harold, Outside Linebacker, Virginia

      Harold is a guy the 49ers will depend on during third downs to get an extra pass rush. The 49ers need his kind of energy.

      Grade: C

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Arik Armstead, Defensive Tackle
                              Round 2: Jaquiski Pratt, Safety



    16. (80) Detroit Lions (F/Minnesota via Kansas City): Alex Carter, Cornerback, Stanford

      Alex Carter had an excellent season at Stanford and a strong combine and pro day. He has good size and aggression but has trouble mirroring receivers on some routes. While he needs work he could be a potential starter in the NFL.

      Grade: B+

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Laken Tomlinson, Guard
                              Round 2: Ameer Abdullah, Running Back



    17. (81) Buffalo Bills: John Miller, Guard, Louisville

      John Miller is good in all areas of the game but not great in any of them he is strong against the run but is better when standing up to bull rushers inside. Buffalo needs that type of help due to their quarterback situation.

      Grade: B

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 2: Ronald Darby, Cornerback



    18. (82) New York Jets (F/Houston): Lorenzo Mauldin, Rush Linebacker:

      Lorenzzo Maulden is one of the last highly skilled pass rushers in this draft and makes a lot of sense for the Jets since they are actively trying to beef up their defense.

      Grade: B

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Leonard Williams, USC
                              Round 2: Devin Smith, Wide Receiver



    19. (83) San Diego Chargers: Craig Mager, Cornerback, Texas State

      Aggressive, athletic, raw. Quinton Jammer without the polish? Check back in two years and see.

      Grade: C

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Melvin Gordon, Running Back
                              Round 2: Denzell Perryman, Middle Linebacker



    20. (84) Philadelphia Eagles: Jordan Hicks, Rush Linebacker, Texas

      A good pass rusher, fills a position of need, could contribute some time during his rookie year.

      Grade: C+

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Nelson Agholor, Wide Receiver
                              Round 2: Eric Rowe, Cornerback



    21. (85) Cincinnati Bengals: Tyler Kroft, Tight End, Rutgers

      This is a bit early for the Rutgers product but he's solid all the way around. As poor as the Bengals tight ends played last year he could compete for a starting position by the end of camp if the incumbents don't pick it up.

      Grade: B-

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Cedric Ogbuehi, Left Tackle
                              Round 2: Jake Fisher, Offensive Tackle



    22. (86) Arizona Cardinals: David Johnson, Running Back, Northern Iowa

      The Cardinals needed a running back and addressing that need they took a bag that fits their system, compliments Andre Arrington -6'1, 225- and has good pass catching ability. If he had better than average speed he may have been rated higher.

      Grade: B+

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: D.J Humphries, Offensive Tackle
                              Round 2: Markus Golden, Rush Linebacker



    23. (87) Pittsburgh Steelers: Sammie Coats, Wide Reveiver, Auburn

      Coates could have been a first round pick if his hands didn't remind people of a man competing in a Saprtain Race. It's like his hands are always wet, always dropping the ball. He will start his career as a punt returner and spend the rest of his days on the jugs.

      Grade: D

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Alvin Dupree, Rush Linebacker, Kentucky
                              Round 2: Senquez Golson, Cornerback



    24. (88) Minnesota Vikings (F/Detroit): Daniel Hunter, Defensive End, LSU:

      Daniel Hunter is another in a long run of raw pass rush prospect with a lot of upside but will have to sitfor at least a season to make an impact. While the strategy of drafting these guys is a good one long term, it serves very little immediate impact and normally gets reserved for rounds 4-7.

      Grade: C+

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Trae Waynes, Cornerback
                              Round 2: Erick Kendricks, Middle Linebacker



    25. (89) St. Louis Rams (F/Carolina): Sean Manion, Quarterback, Oregon St.

      Sean Manion is a big quarterback with a 5th-7th round grade. If this is what the Rams call competition, Nick Foles is laughing it up.

      Grade: Facepalm...

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Todd Gurley, Running Back
                              Round 2: Rob Havenstein, Right Tackle
                              Round 3: Jamon Brown, Offensive Tackle



    26. (90) Baltimore Ravens: Carl Davis, Defensive/Nose Tackle, Iowa

      A lot to like about this pick as Carl Davis is an athletic run stuffer who can penetrate the line well. Davis will integrate into the rotation immediately and serve a strong role.

      Grade: A+

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Brashad Perriman, Wide Receiver
                              Round 2: Maxx Williams, Tight End



    27. (91) Dallas Cowboys: Chaz Greene, Right Tackle, Florida

      Chaz Greene is a a backup right tackle that was severely over-drafted. That said, it fills a need so I can't get too upset.

      Grade: C-

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Byron Jones, Cornerback
                              Round 2: Randy Gregory, Defensive End



    28. (92) Denver Broncos: Jeff Heuerman, Tight End, Ohio State

      Heuerman is a pretty good tight end but doesn't excel in any way. his specialty is run blocking. Heuerman will get a chance to start.

      Grade: C

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Shane Ray, Rush Linebacker
                              Round 2: Tyler Sambrailo, Offensive Tackle



    29. (93) Indianapolis Colts: Henry Anderson, Defensive End, Stanford

      This is a good pick for Indianapolis, a team in need of tough, long armed run stuffers on the defensive line. Anderson will probably start early on for this team.

      Grade: B+

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Phillip Dorsett, Wide Receiver
                              Round 2: D'Joun Smith, Cornerback



    30. (94) Green Bay Packers: Ty Montgomery, Wide Receiver, Stanford

      Ty Montgomery is dynamic with the ball in his hands, the problem is that he drops the ball more than Bill Buckner. Montgomery will be a return specialist as a rookie.

      Grade: C

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Damarious Randall, Safety
                              Round 2: Quinten Rollins, Cornerback



    31. (95) Washington Redskins (F/Seattle): Matt Jones, Running Back, Florida

      Matt Jones is a great athlete with a lot of power and could contribute to the Washington offense as soon as he learns it. This is a solid choice for the Redskins that could pay huge dividends, especially in the redzone. Unfortunately, Jones would have been available in the third.

      Grade: C+

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Brandon Scherff, Guard/Tackle
                              Round 2: Preston Smith, Defensive End



    32. (96) Cleveland Browns (F/New England): Xavier Cooper, Defensive Tackle, Washington State

      The reason this pick isn't a low is because Cooper wouldn't have been on the board the next time Cleveland picked. Xavier Cooper is an athletic penetrator on the defensive line who will need to learn how to play in the 34. I am convinced this pick was made in anticipation of losing defensive linemen next year.

      Grade: B

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Danny Shelton, Nose Tackle
                              Round 1: Cameron Erving, Center
                              Round 2: Nate Orchard, Rush Linebacker
                              Round 3: Duke Johnson, Running Back



    33. (97) New England Patriots: Geneo Grissom, Defensive End, Oklahoma

      More defensive line help for a New England team that seems content to rebuild their defensive line through the draft in short order.

      Grade: B5

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Malcom Brown, Defensive Tackle
                              Round 2: Jordan Richards, Strong Safety



    34. (98) Kansas City Chiefs: Steven Nelson, Cornerback, Oregon St

      Steven Nelson is an extremely competitive player. Some people would call him scrappy, I call him determined. Players like Nelson will find a way to make a difference for his team.

      Grade: B

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Marcus Peters, Cornerback
                              Round 2: Mitch Morse, Guard
                              Round 3: Chris Conley, Wide Receiver



    35. (99) Cincinnati Bengals: Paul Dawson, Middle Linebacker,Texas Christian

      The top middle linebacker on Mel Kiper's board, extremely talented. Will push starters at SAM and MIKE and could start by Week 1 for the Bengals.

      Grade: A

            Previous Selections:
                              Round 1: Cedric Ogbuehi, Offensive Tackle
                              Round 2: Jake Fisher, Offensive Tackle
                              Round 3: Tyler Kroft, Tight End








    Round 3:               1. Indianapolis Colts (F/Tampa Bay): D'Juan Smith, Cornerback, Florida Atlantic               2. Tennessee Titans: Jeremiah Poutasi, Offensive Tackle, Utah               3. Jacksonville Jaguars: A.J Cann, Guard, South Carolina               4. Oakland Raiders: Clive Walfard, Tight End, Miami (Fla)               5.
