How does Jay Morrison see the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft playing out? Here's his mock draft:
1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- Jameis Winston, QB, Florida State
The Buccaneers believe Winston can shorten the long road back to respectability.
2. Tennessee Titans -- Leonard Williams, DE, USC
There’s been a lot of chatter about the Titans taking Marcus Mariota, but it’s too early to give up on current quarterback Zach Mettenberger, and Williams will be an elite difference maker.
3. Jacksonville Jaguars -- Dante Fowler Jr., DE, Florida
Next to quarterback, edge rushers are the most coveted players in today’s league and are especially high on the Jaguars’ wish list.
4. Oakland Raiders -- Kevin White, WR, West Virginia
His explosive speed gives White a slight edge over Amari Cooper.
5. Washington Redskins -- Randy Gregory, OLB, Nebraska
The positive test for marijuana might dissuade some teams from taking Gregory this high, but not the Redskins.
6. New York Jets -- Vic Beasley, OLB, Clemson
After shoring up the secondary in free agency, the Jets add an edge rusher to a defense with top-5 potential.
7. Chicago Bears -- Amari Cooper, WR, Alabama
Logic dictates the Bears go for a much-needed upgrade on defense, which is why the they will go the other way.
8. Atlanta Falcons -- Bud Dupress, LB, Kentucky
There’s no way new coach Dan Quinn makes his first pick anything other than difference maker on defense.
9. New York Giants -- Andrus Peat, OT, Stanford
This, too, might be a bit of reach, but the Giants have to upgrade their line if they want Eli Manning to make it through the season.
10. St. Louis Rams -- Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon
The Rams don’t really know what they have in Nick Foles having just traded for him, and they can’t pass up a chance to get a franchise quarterback at No. 10.
11. Minnesota Vikings -- Devante Parker, WR, Louisville
The Vikings need another wide receiver, so who better than Teddy Bridgewater’s college teammate.
12. Cleveland Browns -- Danny Shelton, DT, Washington
As bad as the Browns need a receiver, they could trade up for one of the top three available. But if they stay put at 12, Shelton will be a solid addition to the defensive line.
13. New Orleans Saints -- Shane Ray, OLB/DE, Missouri
The Saints have issues in the secondary, but they can’t afford to pass on an edge rusher as explosive as Ray.
14. Miami Dolphins -- Trae Waynes,CB, Michigan State
Bengals cornerback Darqueze Dennard will be happy to see another member of the No Fly Zone land in the first round.
15. San Francisco 49ers -- Arik Armstead, DL, Oregon State
The release of Ray McDonald and impening retirement of Justin Smith makes this an easy choice.
16. Houston Texans -- La’el Collins, OT, LSU
The Texans could trade up as Mariota falls, but if they stay put at 16, a tackle makes the most sense.
17. San Diego Chargers -- Todd Gurley, RB, Georgia
The two-year drought with no running backs taken in the first round comes to an end.
18. Kansas City Chiefs -- Brandon Scherff, OG, Iowa
The bigger need is at tackle, but it’s a deeper position and it will be hard to pass on an interior lineman of Scherff’s ability.
19. Cleveland Browns -- Jaelan Strong, WR, Arizona State
Maybe not in the same class as White, Cooper and Parker, but still solid receiver for a team in desperate need of one.
20. Philadelphia Eagles -- Landon Collins, S, Alabama
Collins could be the steal of the draft if he actually falls this far.
21. Cincinnati Bengals -- Ereck Flowers, OT, Miami
The Bengals could go in any direction here, but adding a tackle to back up the aging Andrew Whitworth and Andre Smith makes sense.
22. Pittsburgh Steelers -- Hau’Oli Kikaha, OLB, Washington
With Jason Worilds retired and Jarvis Jones still a work in progress, Kikaha gives the Steelers the presence they need on the edge.
23. Detroit Lions -- Malcolm Brown, DT, Texas
Replacing Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley is the Lions’ top priority.
24. Arizona Cardinals -- Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin
The Cardinals would love to add a power-running complement to Andre Ellington.
25. Carolina Panthers -- T.J. Clemmings, OT, Pittsburgh
Jordan Gross’ abrupt retirement last July has the Panthers on the hunt for a left tackle who will anchor the line for years.
26. Baltimore Ravens -- Sammie Coates, WR, Auburn
While the Ravens may have more pressing needs in the secondary, receiver is a focal point as well with Steve Smith aging and Torrey Smith off to San Francisco.
27. Dallas Cowboys -- Marcus Peters, CB, Washington
If there’s one guy who isn’t scared of players with character issues, it’s Jerry Jones.
28. Denver Broncos -- Maxx Williams, TE, Minnesota
With Julius Thomas off to Jacksonville, Williams will be a solid replacement for one of Peyton Manning’s favorite targets.
29. Indianapolis Colts -- Cameron Erving, C, Florida State
He would be the highest drafted center since Pittsburgh took Maurkice Pouncey 18th in 2010, which illustrates how big the need is for the Colts.
30. Green Bay Packers -- Jalen Collins, CB, LSU
The third Collins drafted in the first round gives the Packers a solid replacement for Tramon Williams.
31. New Orleans Saints -- Dorial Green-Beckham, WR, Missouri
Dropping the riskiest player in the draft in temptation-rich New Orleans makes this the ultimate “high risk, high reward” situation.
32. New England Patriots -- Devin Smith, WR, Ohio State
All signs point to the Patriots finding a replacement for Vince Wilfork, but finding Tom Brady another weapon with Smith’s speed might be too enticing to turn down.
