The Commish's Mock Draft II

Justin Pawlowski's second 2-round mock draft of 2015.

Free Agency officially begins at 4 ET on Tuesday, but before that begins, let's take a look at how I think the draft could play out right now. Obviously, a lot of things will change with the draft as players officially sign with their new clubs.

1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Jameis Winston - QB - FSU

Commish's Take: No change here. Winston is the top quarterback and top player in this draft in my opinion. The Bucs and Winston have done all the right things in preparing Bucs fans for this pick.

2. Tennessee Titans - Leonard Williams - DT - USC

Commish's Take: Dick Lebeau is now with the Titans as an assistant. Lebeau always built his defenses in Pittsburgh by building up the front seven. Leonard Williams is a great fit at end in the Titans 3-4 defense.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars - Dante Fowler Jr. - EDGE - Florida

Commish's Take: No change here. Fowler is a big pass rusher who can play the LEO position in Gus Bradley's defense. It would be back-to-back years the Jaguars have selected a player from the state of Florida with a top 5 pick.

4. Oakland Raiders - Kevin White - WR - West Virginia

Commish's Take: Kevin White was already my top receiver in this draft and solidified it at the combine. After the Raiders missed out on Randall Cobb, they need to go receiver here and give Derek Carr a legit weapon.

5. Washington Redskins - Shane Ray - EDGE - Missouri

Commish's Take: Ray is a productive rusher off the edge. I like Ray over Beasley and Gregory because he has less questions than both of them.

6. New York Jets - Marcus Mariota - QB - Oregon

Commish's Take: I have a strong feeling either the Jaguars, Raiders, or Redskins trade down with a team who wants Mariota. If he slips to this pick, I think the Jets will be under a lot of pressure from their fans to make Mariota the pick.

7. Chicago Bears - Landon Collins - S - Alabama

Commish's Take: This might be surprising to some, but Collins is the top safety in a very weak safety class this entire off-season. The Bears addressed their pass rusher need by signing Pernell McPhee. Remember, new defensive coordinator Vic Fangio was with the 49ers when they selected Eric Reid and Jimmie Ward in the 1st round the past couple of years. Collins would be a nice hard-hitting safety for his defense.

8. Atlanta Falcons - Randy Gregory - EDGE - Nebraska

Commish's Take: The Falcons need pass rushers. Gregory is only 235 lbs, but he has the frame to get bigger. Gregory's explosion will be a good fit in Dan Quinn's defense.

9. New York Giants - Malcom Brown - DT - Texas

Commish's Take: The Giants need a disruptive force on the inside to pair with Jason Pierre-Paul on the outside.

10. St. Louis Rams - Brandon Scherff - OG - Iowa

Commish's Take: The Rams continue to build their offensive line. I think Scherff ends up at guard like Zack Martin did a year ago for the Cowboys.

11. Minnesota Vikings - Trae Waynes - CB - Michigan State

Commish's Take: Mike Zimmer gets an athletic corner with a lot of speed on the outside. The Vikings can grab a wide receiver later.

12. Cleveland Browns - Amari Cooper - WR - Alabama

Commish's Take: Having a wide receiver with the talent and work ethic that Cooper has will be refreshing to the Browns. Cooper is an excellent route runner and has soft hands. He immediately becomes the Browns top target.

13. New Orleans Saints - Vic Beasley - EDGE - Clemson

Commish's Take: I think the Saints are good with their down linemen, but they need pass rushers. Vic Beasley is a player on the rise, and a nice fit for the Saints. He needs to keep the weight on after reports surfaced that he was playing around 220 lbs last season.

14. Miami Dolphins - DeVante Parker - WR - Louisville

Commish's Take: The Dolphins struck it big by landing Ndamukong Suh on defense, and he will help their secondary out. Parker will help Ryan Tannehill out.

15. San Francisco 49ers - Arik Armstead - DE/DT - Oregon

Commish's Take: The 49ers suddenly have major problems on defense after the retirements of Patrick Willis and Justin Smith. Armstead can step right in and try to fill the shoes of Smith.

16. Houston Texans - Todd Gurley - RB - Georgia

Commish's Take: Gurley might be coming off a torn ACL, but he's clearly the top running back in the past few drafts in my opinion. I think Gurley can do it all, and would have time to fully recover with Arian Foster still on the roster.

17. San Diego Chargers - La'el Collins - OT/OG - LSU

Commish's Take: Collins played left tackle at LSU, but he is very attractive as a physical guard.

18. Kansas City Chiefs - Cameron Erving - OL - FSU

Commish's Take: With Rodney Hudson off to Oakland, Andy Reid gets his replacement in Erving. Over his coaching career, Reid loves to grab offensive linemen early in the draft.

19. Cleveland Browns (via BUF) - Danny Shelton - DT - Washington

Commish's Take: I'm not as high on Shelton as others. He is a massive man in the middle of a defense, but when someone is that big, they're extremely close to being out of shape if they let their guard down at anytime.

20. Philadelphia Eagles - Brett Hundley - QB - UCLA

Commish's Take: Everyone's focused on Chip Kelly trading up for Marcus Mariota, but if he can't, he better find someone to play quarterback. Hundley has all of the characteristics to properly execute Kelly's offense.

21. Cincinnati Bengals - Ereck Flowers - OT - Miami

Commish's Take: Flowers is a massive offensive tackle who fits the mold of what the Bengals normally look for in an offensive tackle.

22. Pittsburgh Steelers - Bud Dupree - EDGE - Kentucky

Commish's Take: The Steelers have bigger needs in their secondary, but Dupree offers too much value to pass up. Dupree would continue to build up a young front-7 on defense for the Steelers.

23. Detroit Lions - Eddie Goldman - DT - FSU

Commish's Take: Ndamukong Suh is gone to Miami. Goldman is a talented defensive tackle who could step in and contribute as a rookie.

24. Arizona Cardinals - Melvin Gordon - RB - Wisconsin

Commish's Take: The Cardinals have been rumored to be a team that will go after Adrian Peterson. If they fail, Gordon is a player who can bring a threat to the Cardinals backfield.

25. Carolina Panthers - D.J. Humphries - OT - Florida

Commish's Take: Humphries is one of the few tackles in this draft athletic enough to play left tackle. With the recent signing of right tackle Michael Oher, Humphries might be a nice fit on the left side.

26. Baltimore Ravens - Jalen Collins - CB - LSU

Commish's Take: The Ravens will not draft any prospects with character issues. Collins is a big corner whose best days are ahead of him.

27. Dallas Cowboys - Shaq Thompson - LB/S - Washington

Commish's Take: I expect Rolando McClain to be back with the Cowboys at middle linebacker. Thompson's instincts could make him a great fit as a weakside linebacker in Rod Marinelli's defense, much like Lavonte David is for the Bucs.

28. Denver Broncos - Maxx Williams - TE - Minnesota

Commish's Take: Peyton Manning loves to use his tight ends, and Gary Kubiak's offense has always used the tight end in the pass game. Maxx Williams could step right in and be a contributor in the Broncos offense.

29. Indianapolis Colts - Andrus Peat - OT - Stanford

Commish's Take: Peat reunites with his old quarterback and offensive coordinator. The Colts could use him.

30. Green Bay Packers - Stephone Anthony - LB - Clemson

Commish's Take: This might be a little bit of a surprise, especially with Eric Kendricks still on the board, but recent reports have the Packers very high on Anthony. Anthony has the size and athleticism that will have coaches of any type of defense liking him more and more as the draft gets closer.

31. Seattle Seahawks - Jaelen Strong - WR - Arizona State

Commish's Take: I'm a fan of Strong, and if he drops this far, he has to be the pick of the Seahawks.

32. New England Patriots - Jordan Phillips - DT - Oklahoma

Commish's Take: The Patriots have moved on from Vince Wilfork this off-season. The massive Phillips could be his replacement. Phillips has excellent size and ability on the interior of the defensive line.


33. Tennessee Titans - Eli Harold - EDGE - Virginia

Commish's Take: The Titans stick with their front seven. Harold is ultra-athletic, can provide pressure off the edge, and probably has his best days in front of him.

34. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Owamagbe Odighizuwa - DE - UCLA

Commish's Take: Thought seriously about Kendricks here, but pass rusher is much more important than a linebacker. If healthy, I think Odighizuwa could end up as a very good pass rusher in the NFL. He does a great job playing with both speed and power.

35. Oakland Raiders - Eric Kendricks - LB - UCLA

Commish's Take: The Raiders already have Khalil Mack and Sio Moore, but Kendricks brings it all together in the middle.

36. Jacksonville Jaguars - A.J. Cann - OG - South Carolina

Commish's Take: The Jaguars seem to be set with their tackles, but they need to address their interior line. Cannis the top guard in the draft.

37. New York Jets - Kevin Johnson - CB - Wake Forest

Commish's Take: If the Jets can't get Darrelle Revis, they'll be looking for another corner. Johnson does everything well and should be able to step right into that defense.

38. Washington Redskins - Dorial Green-Beckham - WR - Oklahoma

Commish's Take: Jay Gruden has plenty of undersized receivers, but Green-Beckham can add a different dimension to his offense.

39. Chicago Bears - Nate Orchard - EDGE - Utah

Commish's Take: Orchard is a nice edge rusher to put in Vic Fangio's defense.

40. New York Giants - T.J. Clemmings - OT - Pitt

Commish's Take: Clemmings has a ton of raw talent and is a value pick for the Giants at this point.

41. St. Louis Rams - Marcus Peters - CB - Washington

Commish's Take: Peters character is concerning after he was dismissed from Washington's football team in the middle of last season. Jeff Fisher has shown a willingness to take chances on players.

42. Atlanta Falcons - Cedric Ogbuehi - OT - Texas A&M

Commish's Take: Despite coming off a torn ACL, Ogbuehi is still one of the top offensive tackles in the draft. Ogbuehi pairs up with his former teammate Jake Matthews to give the Falcons their offensive tackles for the next 10 years.

43. Cleveland Browns - Jake Fisher - OT - Oregon

Commish's Take: Fisher is a tough-minded physical offensive tackle.

44. New Orleans Saints - Devin Funchess - WR - Michigan

Commish's Take: The Saints continue to have all kinds of cap issues, and Marques Colston's contract is among the worst. Funchess could be attempt at a younger and cheaper Marques Colston.

45. Minnesota Vikings - Laken Tomlinson - OG - Duke

Commish's Take: Tomlinson is a massive guard with very good athleticism. He's not as physical as I thought he'd be being that big, but is very nimble for his size.

46. San Francisco 49ers - Nelson Agholor - WR - USC

Commish's Take: Agholor is a very good route runner and possesses very good hands. Agholor would be a nice pairing with Torrey Smith, who is expected to sign with the 49ers soon.

47. Miami Dolphins - Quinten Rollins - CB - Miami (OH)

Commish's Take: Rollins is a raw corner with excellent ball skills. He can add depth and talent to the Dolphins secondary.

48. San Diego Chargers - Xavier Cooper - DT- Washington State

Commish's Take: Cooper is a big and athletic linemen who can add depth for the Chargers.

49. Kansas City Chiefs - Devin Smith - WR - Ohio State

Commish's Take: Andy Reid signed Jeremy Maclin. He can now recreate his days in Philly with a player whose speed is a lot like DeSean Jackson.

50. Buffalo Bills - Denzel Perryman - LB - Miami

Commish's Take: Perryman's toughness and intensity just screams Rex Ryan to me. Nice replacement for Kiko Alonzo.

51. Houston Texans - Breshad Perriman - WR - UCF

Commish's Take: Perriman is a big receiver who can stretch the field.

52. Philadelphia Eagles - Ifo Ekpre-Olomu - CB - Oregon

Commish's Take: The Eagles are a team desperate for a corner, and while Ekpre-Olomu is coming off a major knee injury, he was a top 10 talent before the injury occurred. Oh, and Chip Kelly loves Oregon.

53. Cincinnati Bengals - Preston Smith - DE - Mississippi State

Commish's Take: Smith is a big end whose best fit is in the 4-3 defense.

54. Detroit Lions - Paul Dawson - LB - TCU

Commish's Take: Stephen Tulloch might be on track to return from injury, but Dawson's film and instincts might be too enticing to pass on.

55. Arizona Cardinals - Benardrick McKinney - LB - Miss State

Commish's Take: McKinney is a big linebacker who can be paired with Sean Weatherspoon.

56. Pittsburgh Steelers - P.J. Williams - CB - FSU

Commish's Take: I think Williams will be much better in his pro day than he was at the combine. The Steelers could use him at corner.

57. Carolina Panthers - Sammie Coates - WR - Auburn

Commish's Take: The idea of Coates and Kelvin Benjamin opposite of each other would be scary for the NFC South.

58. Baltimore Ravens - Carl Davis - DT - Iowa

Commish's Take: Davis had a great week at the Senior Bowl, but his film doesn't match that. The Ravens could use a boost to their defensive line.

59. Denver Broncos - Ty Sambrailo - OL - Colorado State

Commish's Take: Sambrailo lacks elite strength, but is a good athlete. Sambrailo's ability to move is a good fit in Gary Kubiak's offense.

60. Dallas Cowboys - Jay Ajayi - RB - Boise State

Commish's Take: This pick is simply if the Cowboys do not bring DeMarco Murray back. Ajayi is a physical back who can carry the ball 20-25 times a game.

61. Indianapolis Colts - Michael Bennett - DT - Ohio State

Commish's Take: Bennett can rush from many different spots and could be a nice fit in the Colts defense.

62. Green Bay Packers - DJoun Smith- CB - FAU

Commish's Take: The Packers do not have a lot of needs, but a young and talented raw corner could be a nice fit.

63. Seattle Seahawks - Ali Marpet - OL - Hobart

Commish's Take: The Seahawks normally do something to make everyone scratch their heads. Marpet might be a Division 3 player, but he could have a long NFL career ahead of him.

64. New England Patriots - Tevin Coleman - RB - Indiana

Commish's Take: The Patriots are likely to lose Shane Vereen in free agency. Coleman is an excellent receiver out of the backfield and could provide a spark to Blount. (I really did not mean the pun here)
