Here is my updated look at how the first 3 rounds of the draft could wrap up:
1st Round: Jameis Winston - QB - FSU
2nd Round: T.J. Clemmings - OT - Pitt
Commish's Take: It might seem boring that the same names continue to come up for the Buccaneers, but the good news for Bucs fans is that they are the right names. Clemmings can step in at right tackle, while Demar Dotson slides to left tackle. Orchard has received a ton of attention by the Bucs. He could provide a legit edge rush from right defensive end. As for Jameis Winston, I just don't think there has been any legit news to show that the Bucs would go in any other direction.
Commish's Take: I'm not sure if the Titans make the pick of Mariota, but he could very well go 2nd overall. There is the possibility that I'm buying into this over-publicized praise of Mariota as the 2nd pick in the draft. None-the-less, Mariota provides the Titans with a true face of their franchise. Preston Smith helps Dick Lebeau's and Rex Horton's 3-4 defense with his power from the end position. Williams is a massive right tackle and fills a big void for the Titans.
Commish's Take: I'm not buying the recent chatter relating to the many different players the Jaguars could take. Fowler can be an impact pass rusher and big time leader for Gus Bradley's defense. Ogbuehi is extremely talented, but is coming off a torn ACL. Ajayi gives the Jaguars a legit feature back.
3rd Round: Tre Jackson - OG - FSU
Commish's Take: This would be another stellar draft by the Raiders. Williams is considered by many as the best player in the draft. On offense, Strong and Jackson immediately help your young quarterback in Derek Carr.
Commish's Take: New defensive coordinator Joe Barry has ties to the 4-3 defense and the 3-4 defense. The advantage Ray gives over Vic Beasley is that Shane Ray brings scheme versatility and the ability to get to the quarterback in any defense. Anthony provides athleticism and leadership to the middle of the Redskins defense. Havenstein battles imemdiately with Morgan Moses to start at right tackle.
1st Round: Vic Beasley - EDGE - Clemson
Commish's Take: Todd Bowles first draft as head coach of the draft is played well and played safe. Beasley, Tomlinson, and Abdullah all have great talent and tremendous character.
2nd Round: Eddie Goldman - DT - FSU
Commish's Take: If you can't replace Jay Cutler, you might as well get him one of the best weapons in the draft. On defense, the Bears benefit from a slight slip for Goldman to bolster their defensive line. The Bears also take a chance on the very raw, but very talented, Danielle Hunter.
1st Round: Bud Dupree - EDGE - Kentucky
3rd Round: TJ Yeldon - RB - Alabama
Commish's Take: The Falcons aren't that far removed from being a playoff contender. They do need help in their secondary, but more than that, they need an identity on defense. Dan Quinn gets his big pass rusher to mold in Dupree and his athletic linebacker to lead in the middle in Kendricks. Yeldon is an excellent fit in Kyle Shanahan's zone run scheme.
2nd Round: Owa Odighizuwa - DE - UCLA
3rd Round: Ali Marpet - OG - Hobart
Commish's Take: Steve Spagnolo is back as Giants defensive coordinator. The last time he was there, the Giants had one of the best defensive lines in the NFL. The Giants should not over think their 1st round pick. Danny Shelton is massive and strong. He'll immediately help one of the worst run defenses in the NFL. Odighizuwa is a raw pass rusher who might remind some of a young Jason Pierre-Paul. Ali Marpet is your typical Tom Coughlin offensive lineman.
2nd Round: Shaq Thompson - LB/S - Washington
3rd Round: Quentin Rollins - CB/S - Miami (OH)
Commish's Take: The Raws love taking talented players who have a ton of potential. All three of their picks are players who could end up being much better professional players than they were in college.
3rd Round: P.J. Williams - CB - FSU
Commish's Take: If I were a Vikings fan, I'd love this draft. Teddy gets his big playmaker from Louisville who can become a legit number one receiver to pair with their speed receivers. Dawson and Williams each present their own character issues, but Mike Zimmer drafted these type of players all the time with the Bengals and created one of the best defenses in the NFL.
1st Round: Arik Armstead - DE - Oregon
2nd Round: Landon Collins - S - Alabama
3rd Round: Hroniss Grasu - C - Oregon
Commish's Take: The more I think about this draft, the more I believe certain players will end up in the top 15 picks of this draft. Arik Armstead is one of those guys. He is very big and ultra-talented. Mike Pettine will find a place for him. Perriman gives the Browns a legit threat on the outside, while Grasu gives the Browns some insurance if Alex Mack leaves after 2015. Grasu could start his NFL career at guard. In a recent podcast with me, NFL Films' Greg Cosell said that part of Perriman's game was very reminiscent to Dez Bryant's game. Collins is a luxury pick who falls to the 2nd round and is too good for the Browns to pass up as Whitner's eventual replacement.
2nd Round: Dorial Green-Beckham - WR - Oklahoma
3rd Round: Benardrick McKinney - LB - Mississippi State
Commish's Take: The Saints load up on draft picks and knock this draft out of the park if these players are selected. Scherff helps replace Ben Grubbs, while character concerns are very real around Dorial Green-Beckham, but so is his outrageous talent. On defense, the Saints get their athletic rusher in Harold, a big bodied and big potential linebacker in McKinney, and one of the most underrated corners in this draft in Nelson. The window isn't closed just yet.
2nd Round: Phillip Dorsett - WR - Miami
Commish's Take: The Dolphins got their impact player on defense during free agency in signing Ndamukong Suh, now it's time for the offense. Gurley got good news recently when he got his knee re-checked, and that signaled to me that he'll end up as a top 15 pick. Gurley is an instant upgrade over anything the Dolphins have at running back, and remember that Dolphin's offensive coordinator Bill Lazor comes from Chip Kelly's offense, which loves to run the football. Dorsett is a great replacement for Mike Wallace.
San Francisco 49ers
1st Round: Marcus Peters - CB - Washington
3rd Round: Chris Conley - WR - Georgia
Commish's Take: The 49ers have a ton of needs after a very tough off-season. If they can get past his attitude, Peterson would be a nice fit with their aggressive defense. Bennett can step in and play end in their 3-4 defense.
3rd Round: Hau'oli Kikaha - EDGE - Washington
Commish's Take: I just don't know what the Texans are going to do as long as they don't have a legit starting quarterback. Waynes bolsters their secondary, while Kikaha is insurance for Clowney's recent injury troubles. Coates is a big receiver with speed to stretch the field as Andre Johnson's replacement.
Commish's Take: The Chargers address their biggest needs early. Peat can play right tackle, and allow them to move Fluker inside to guard. Tevin Coleman is a homerun hitter and could be in contention for rookie of the year behind a new and massive Chargers offensive line.
1st Round: D.J. Humphries - OT - Florida
3rd Round: B.J. Finney - C - Kansas State
3rd Round: Ifo Ekpre-Olomu - CB - Oregon
Commish's Take: Andy Reid gets back to his roots by taking an offensive lineman early in the draft. Humphries gives Reid the opportunity to move Eric Fisher to right tackle and have Humphries at left tackle. Lockett is the speed receiver to pair with Maclin.
1st Round: Byron Jones - CB/S - UCONN
3rd Round: Devin Smith - WR - Ohio State
Commish's Take: The Eagles have Tebow now, so why would they need another QB? I kid. I don't think Chip Kelly likes big personalities, which is a pattern with their draft picks. Jones can play CB or safety, and I actually really like him as a true centerfielder. Donovan Smith has gotten a lot of attention from Chip Kelly. He could start at guard as a possible replacement for Evan Mathis before eventually moving to OT. Devin Smith gives Chip Kelly's offense a legit deep threat.
1st Round: Jake Fisher - OT - Oregon
2nd Round: Jordan Phillips - DT - Oklahoma
3rd Round: Kwon Alexander - LB - LSU
Commish's Take: The Bengals need to finally invest some draft picks into their line of scrimmage. Fisher is probably better at right tackle, but can play left tackle. Phillips is your typical "boom or bust" player, which the Bengals love to select! Flowers provides some depth at defensive end and provides some help in getting to the quarterback.
1st Round: Jalen Collins - CB - LSU
2nd Round: Jaquiski Tartt - S - Samford
3rd Round: Duke Johnson - RB - Miami
Commish's Take: The Steelers typically address their front-7 on defense, but this is the year they should finally address their needs in the secondary. I like Jalen Collins, but love Jaquiski Tartt. Duke Johnson gives their offense a young set of legs to pair with DeAngelo Williams while Le'Veon Bell is suspended.
2nd Round: Ronald Darby - CB - FSU
3rd Round: Jarvis Harison - OG - Texas A&M
Commish's Take: This couldn't work out better for the Lions. If Brown slips to their pick, he is the natural selection to play next to Ngata. Darby gives them youth and athleticism behind Rashean Mathis.
1st Round: Randy Gregory - EDGE - Nebraska
2nd Round: Carl Davis - DT/DE - Iowa
3rd Round: Clive Warford - TE - Miami
Commish's Take: Gregory's fall finally ends. Him and Davis bolster the Cardinals front-7 on defense, while Warford is too good to pass on late in the 3rd round.
1st Round: La'el Collins - OT - LSU
2nd Round: Damarious Randall - S - Arizona State
Commish's Take: Collins isn't a true left tackle, but I think he could play that spot if needed. Collins is probably better at right tackle or guard, but is definitely an upgrade for the Panthers. Randall is a free safety to make plays in the back end of their defense. Hardy is a local product who provides Cam Newton with a reliable route runner and set of hands.
1st Round: Nelson Agholor - WR - USC
2nd Round: Alex Carter - CB - Stanford
Commish's Take: The Ravens tend to just take really good football players who fit well with their organization. Agholor would be an ideal replacement for Torrey Smith. I'd also look for the Ravens to only draft players this year with superb character.
1st Round: Melvin Gordon - RB - Wisconsin
2nd Round: Grady Jackson - DT - Clemson
3rd Round: Charles Gaines - CB - Louisville
Commish's Take: If Gurley or Gordon are available, the Cowboys will go with a running back in the 1st round. Grady Jackson is a great fit as the 3-technique.
1st Round: Cam Erving - C - FSU
Commish's Take: If you still have Peyton Manning, you might as well build around him. Erving and Sambrailo are good fits in Gary Kubiak's offense.
1st Round: Ereck Flowers - OT - Miami
2nd Round: Mario Edwards - DE - FSU
3rd Round: David Cobb - RB - Minnesota
Commish's Take: Flowers brings potential pro bowl value as a right tackle. Mario Edwards is a good fit on the Colts defensive line no matter what he weighs. Cobb can finally be the future feature back for the Colts behind Gore.
2nd Round: Gabe Wright - DE - Auburn
3rd Round: Jeff Heuerman - TE - Ohio State
Commish's Take: Typical Packers draft. Very talented players with good character.
1st Round: Eric Rowe - CB/S - Utah
3rd Round: Rashad Greene - WR - FSU
Commish's Take: I've been high on Eric Rowe since the Senior Bowl. He's a big corner who can play safety. Cann steps in as a starter immediately.
2nd Round: Denzel Perryman - LB - Miami
Commish's Take: Perryman is the ideal fit with Rex Ryan. Petty's strong arm gives him a chance to play in the weather in Buffalo.
2nd Round: Devin Funchess - WR - Michigan
3rd Round: Jeremy Poutasi - OT/OG - UtahSubscribe to The Commish Online Podcast on iTunes!
