Reller NFL Mock Draft 1.0

1 of 3

The NFL Draft is just 19 days away and the internet is flooded with mock drafts, so why not add another one? Here is my first (and likely only) NFL mock draft for the 2015 season. The Colts have a number of needs on defense, will a talented run stopper fall to them?

Interested to find out what Luke Schultheis had in his mock draft? Check it out here.

Take a look at Reller’s Mock Draft 1.0:

1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

1. player. 48. Winston seems to be the consensus first pick in the draft and the Bucs seem to be sold on him. There are two areas of concern regarding Winston though. The first is his off the field issues which are numerous and very disturbing. The second is the 18 interceptions he threw in 2014. While he has all the physical tools of a starting QB, its hard to throw that many picks in college football.. Quarterback. Florida State. Jameis Winston

2. Tennessee Titans

2. player. 35. There is a very real chance that the Titans pick Marcus Mariota, but they should go with Williams. They could always pass on both and trade the pick for a king’s ransom, but they’d miss out on a great prospect in Williams. He is likely the best player in the draft and putting him on your defense will fundamentally change it. Williams can dominate the line of scrimmage and give opponents nightmares.. Defensive End. Southern California. Leonard Williams

3. Jacksonville Jaguars

Florida. Dante Fowler Jr.. 3. player. 52. The Jags have needs all over the field, but with a lot of young talent on offense, the defense checks in as a higher need. Like other AFC South teams before them, the Jaguars will go after possibly the best pass rusher in the draft with Fowler. He’s a good fit for a 4-3 defense and will give the Jags the talented young pass rusher they need.. Defensive End

4. Oakland Raiders

The Raiders desperately need to get Derek Carr some weapons and Cooper fits that role perfectly. While he doesn’t fit the old Raiders philosophy of “taking the guy with the fastest 40-time” he’s likely to be a very good wide receiver for years to come.. Wide Receiver. Alabama. Amari Cooper. 4. player. 28

5. Washington Redskins

6. New York Jets

Randy Gregory. 6. player. 30. Gregory recently made news by failing his drug test prior to the NFL Scouting Combine, but that shouldn’t hurt his draft stock too much. He’s an ideal fit for the Jets defense that needs a consistent pass rusher (especially since they face Tom Brady twice a year). Gregory will thrive in Jets scheme, especially with all the talent around him.. Outside Linebacker. Nebraska

7. Chicago Bears

57. The Bears need to find a replacement for the recently traded Brandon Marshall and White might be the best WR in the draft (toss up with Cooper). White will likely be the best available player here as well. He’ll be a nice complement to Alshon Jeffery and has everything you want in a wide receiver.. Wide Receiver. West Virginia. Kevin White. 7. player

8. Atlanta Falcons

Clemson. Vic Beasley. 8. player. 44. The Falcons have a desperate need for a pass rush, which you could probably copy and paste each year. Beasley has worked hard to increase his strength and take-on skills (he had the best bench press among linebackers at the Combine with 35 reps). Its tough to argue with 11 sacks last season and 33 in three seasons too.. Outside Linebacker

9. New York Giants

Iowa. Brandon Schreff. 9. player. 31. The Giants haven’t had a stable offensive line in years and Eli Manning is entering a contract year. Schreff seems to be the consensus pick here (likely meaning they’ll take someone else) and it’s no wonder as he’s the best offensive lineman in the draft. He’s also a versatile player who could play tackle or guard and is a great fit for Tom Coughlin’s team.. Offensive Tackle

10. St. Louis Rams

There is a real chance Mariota doesn’t make it past the first couple of picks (possibly due to a trade), but he isn’t worth mortgaging a team’s future for either. Mariota needs to go to a team that would be willing to commit, at least in part, to a spread offense. Jeff Fischer has shown a willingness to be innovative on the field, and could change his offense to utilize Mariota properly. He might not go to the Rams, but I can’t see him dropping out of the top 10 nor do I see the Rams being sold on Nick Foles. . Quarterback. Oregon. Marcus Mariota. 10. player. 51
