Jameis Winston
Florida State / 6'4 / 231 lbs
  • QB
  • [1] #1

Analysis

Winston had an amazing two year starting run at FSU, going 26-1, losing in his final game against Oregon. In 2013 he led his team to an unbeaten season and a national title. This freshman sensation also took home the Heisman Trophy. Winston showed some struggles this past season, throwing 18 interceptions. Still, when Florida State needed him, Winston came through in big ways leading the ‘Noles from behind in many games. There are not many that question Winston the player, the teammate or leader. This kid works hard and some say he’s a football savant. It’s Winston the person that have people worried. Does he have character flaws or just maturity issues? Do you feel comfortable calling him your franchise quarterback?

Marcus Mariota
Oregon / 6'4 / 222 lbs
  • QB
  • [1] #2

Analysis

Mariota had a storied career for the Ducks. He started every game (41) and won the school’s first ever Heisman Trophy. He finished with 10,796 passing yards (68.6%) for 105 touchdowns and only 14 picks. He also rushed for 2,237 yards and 29 scores. He’s a superior athlete who runs well. Mariota has shown that he’s a tremendous leader who makes great decisions with the ball. He has incredible NFL upside but his game will take some time to develop. Mariota possesses good arm strength, field vision, has shown the ability to throw with anticipation.

Dante Fowler
Florida / 6'3 / 261 lbs
  • OLB
  • [1] #3

Analysis

I once saw Fowler play quarterback, fullback, tight end, wide receiver, defensive end and defensive tackle in a high school game. That athleticism made him one of the most coveted recruits in the class of 2012. Now he enters the 2015 NFL Draft with the same distinction. Fowler looks ideal as an outside ‘backer in a 3-4 defense. He’s freaky on the edge and is arguably the top pass rusher in this class. He’s quick and explosive. At 260-pounds he ran 4.6 [forty] at Combine. That’s smoking fast and he can re-direct in space.

Amari Cooper
Alabama / 6'1 / 211 lbs
  • WR
  • [1] #4

Analysis

Cooper was brilliant in Tuscaloosa, leaving Alabama with 228 receptions for 3,463 yards and 31 touchdowns in three seasons with the Crimson Tide. He may not be the biggest wide receiver in this draft class but he does everything exceptionally well. Cooper runs terrific routes, has soft hands, and very good speed, strength and quickness. His work ethic became that of legend at Alabama. There are no sure things in this business but this former four-star recruit from South Florida is as safe as they come from this draft class.

Brandon Scherff
Iowa / 6'5 / 319 lbs
  • OT
  • [1] #5

Analysis

Scherff is another high profiled offensive line prospect from Iowa’s football program. In fact, this former Hawkeye won his share of post-season hardware including the Outland Trophy. He had a spectacular 2014 campaign giving up only once sack. Scherff was credited with 93 knockdowns, 16 touchdown-resulting blocks, and a Big 10-best 90.88% grade for blocking consistency. He projects as a right tackle, guard or both. It’s that versatility that makes him even more draft valuable. Many believe he can have the same rookie impact that Dallas guard Zach Martin had.

Leonard Williams
USC / 6'4.5 / 302 lbs
  • DT
  • [1] #6

Analysis

Williams is the top prospect in this draft. He’s a fit into any front, can play tackle, end and even over the center. This former high profiled four-star recruit from the Sunshine State started 35 of 39 games at USC, where he racked up 21 sacks and 36.5 tackles for a loss. Williams is strong, quick and fast. He has violent hands and shows rare explosion for a 300-pound defensive lineman. Many compare his style and game to that of Richard Seymour.

Kevin White
West Virginia / 6'3 / 215 lbs
  • WR
  • [1] #7

Analysis

This former junior college standout had a killer two year run in Morgantown where he caught 144 passes for 1,954 yards and scored 15 touchdowns. White had a terrific pre-draft during the off-season, running 4.35 [forty] in Indy at combine. He has good size (6-3/215) and explosiveness for this position. White is a deep threat and also a physical wide receiver. He’s also stout after the catch, though he’s not much of a shake and bake guy. White is more power than finesse with the ball in his hands.

Vic Beasley
Clemson / 6'3 / 246 lbs
  • OLB
  • [1] #8

Analysis

Beasley had a big time career with the Tigers, finishing with 33 sacks (Clemson’s all-time leader) and 52.5 tackles for a loss. He tested off the charts at the Combine and on his pro day and looks like he will be one of the top pass rushers taken. Teams are looking at Beasley as an edge guy at defensive end or outside linebacker, depending on scheme. He has quickness, strength and speed to play either position but probably better suited to play OLB in a 3-4 scheme. Beasley is athletic and agile and can play well in space.

Ereck Flowers
Miami (Fl) / 6'6 / 329 lbs
  • OT
  • [1] #9

Analysis

Flowers is local talent from south Florida that elected to stay home and play for the Hurricanes. There, he developed into one of the game’s top offensive tackles. At 6-foot-5, 339-pounds, he gets off the ball incredibly well. Flowers has good feet, quick hands and a long reach. He shows the ability to move people off the ball and mirror defenders in pass pro. He projects as a right tackle and some believe he could be destined to play guard before it’s all said and done.

Todd Gurley
Georgia / 6'1 / 222 lbs
  • RB
  • [1] #10

Analysis

I am a huge Todd Gurley guy. I would have loved to have seen him get through 2014 unscathed and healthy because I firmly believe he would have broken the hex that has been on running backs not taken or not taken highly in the first round. A healthy Todd Gurley is a top ten talent in this draft class and that’s being conservative. His draft status will all depend on the individual teams medical staffs and how they view his injured knee. Gurley has it all as a runner – size, strength, speed and athleticism. He has a chance to be something special on Sundays.

Trae Waynes
Michigan State / 6'0 / 186 lbs
  • CB
  • [1] #11

Analysis

Waynes started 27 of 36 games at Michigan State, 13 at boundary corner and 14 at field corner. He recorded 101 tackles, six interceptions and 13 pass deflections. He’s this year’s top rated cornerback. Waynes has good size and surprised many running so well [4.31 forty] at the Combine. He can turn his hips and run with any wide receiver. He has good short area quickness and shows a super burst to the ball. He can play man, press, off, zone and is effective in run support. Former Spartan Darqueze Dennard was a first rounder last year (No. 24 to Cincinnati). Wayne should go much higher.

Danny Shelton
Washington / 6'2 / 339 lbs
  • DT
  • [1] #12

Analysis

Shelton was a beast as the anchor in the Huskie defense. He played in 53 games at Washington, starting 42 [39 at nose guard]. He’s clearly the top nose guard in this class and an ideal centerpiece for a 3-4 front. For a player of his size [340-pounds] he’s surprisingly nimbl, light on his feet and displays excellent lateral quickness. Shelton is so strong and shows some explosiveness. He commands a double team and often times can’t be moved off his spot. Shelton has the sheer strength to occupy multiple blockers. Last season he accounted for 94 tackles.

Andrus Peat
Stanford / 6'7 / 313 lbs
  • OT
  • [1] #13

Analysis

Peat was a three and out player for the Cardinal who is a future right tackle in the NFL. This former four-star recruit was one of the most coveted linemen in the class of 2012. Peat has enormous size, good length (34 3/8) and large hands (10 5/8). He also has a massive lower body and is still filling out up top. Peat can be strong at the point of attack and shows a good punch. He’s nimble, especially for a bigger cat. Once he bulks up and plays with better balance Peat could and should become a Sunday force in the trenches.

DeVante Parker
Louisville / 6'3 / 209 lbs
  • WR
  • [1] #14

Analysis

Parker hauled in 156 passes for 2,775 yards and scored 33 touchdowns for the Cardinals. He should be one of the first wide receivers off the board on April 30. He has good size and long arms so he plays bigger than his 6-foot-3 frame. Parker gets off the line well and shows good deep speed. He’s also terrific in the air [36.5 vertical jump] and knows how to use his body. Parker is also smart and showed the ability to play and master three spots [flanker, split end and slot] at Louisville. Parker missed with first six games in 2014 with a foot injury.

Melvin Gordon
Wisconsin / 6'1 / 215 lbs
  • RB
  • [1] #15

Analysis

How much money did Melvin Gordon make for himself by coming back for his senior season? He finished with 2,587 yards (7.81 yards/carry), and 29 scores in 2014. Against Nebraska last fall he rushed for 408 yards! I certainly believe Gordon could very well be the first player taken at running back and in the first round. He possesses good size (6-1/215) and excellent balance and vision. Gordon has good speed and a terrific burst once a hole opens up. He has excellent short area quickness and agility and shows the uncanny ability to make defenders miss or plant and drive right by would be tacklers.

Kevin Johnson
Wake Forest / 6'0 / 188 lbs
  • CB
  • [1] #16

Analysis

Johnson is as experienced as any defensive back in this draft class. This former Wake Forest cornerback started 41 of 47 games for the Demon Deacons. There, he recorded 190 tackles, seven interceptions and 35 pass deflections over the course of his career. Johnson possesses very good size (6-0/188) and he runs well enough. He’s instinctive, aggressive and has good short area quickness. Johnson tested well at the combine and had excellent numbers in the vertical jump (41.5) and broad jump (132-inches).

Arik Armstead
Oregon / 6'7 / 292 lbs
  • DT
  • [1] #17

Analysis

In 2012 many of us felt Armstead had the most upside as an offensive tackle. This five-star from Elk Grove, Calif. stuck with the other side of the ball though. Still, he had a nice college career at Oregon and is a potential first round pick on April 30th. He’s enormous at 6-foot-7, 292-pounds. Armstead didn’t put up huge numbers but certainly had an impact on the Ducks defense. He can become a strong side defensive end in an NFL 4-3 defense but is likely best suited to play the five-technique in a base 3-4. Armstead has very good feet and athleticism for a bigger man, which is why he would have made an even better offensive tackle.

Marcus Peters
Washington / 6'0 / 197 lbs
  • CB
  • [1] #18

Analysis

When he played Peters was a super talent on the Huskies defense. Peters had 48 third down stops and five on fourth down against the pass. He also showed the ability to reroute wide receivers almost 44% of the time. Peters finished with 129 tackles, deflected 25 passes, and had 11 interceptions. This is an explosive cornerback with good size (6-0/197). He can flip his hips, turn and run with anyone. Peters has a quick burst, is terrific in the air and is not afraid in run support. He also has anger issues and was kicked off the Washington team last fall because of arguing with the Huskie coaching staff.

Cameron Erving
Florida State / 6'5 / 313 lbs
  • C
  • [1] #19

Analysis

Erving, like T.J. Clemmings, is a converted defensive lineman. The south Georgia standout was terrific in Tallahassee when he transitioned to tackle. In 2014 he made a virtually seamless transition to center. He’s the consummate team player who made the move because the Seminoles needed him there. Erving excelled and became the first ACC offensive linemen to ever win the Jacobs Blocking Trophy (most outstanding linemen) award twice at two different positions. Erving will give one NFL franchise unbelievable value because of his ability to play multiple positions on the offensive front.

Nelson Agholor
USC / 6'0 / 198 lbs

  • [1] #20

Analysis

Agholor got plenty of action, starting at both flanker and split end at USC. He played in 40 games, starting 30 times and finished with 179 receptions for 2,571 yards and 20 touchdowns. This former running back worked hard to make the full time conversion to wide receiver. Agholor has good size (6-0/198), strength and speed numbers. He catches the ball cleanly and is a good route runner. He’s also good after the catch and is tough to defend in the air.

Cedric Ogbuehi
Texas A&M / 6'5 / 306 lbs
  • OT
  • [1] #21

Analysis

Ogbuehi would very well be the third consecutive Aggie offensive linemen drafted in the first round had it not been for a [very] late season knee injury (ACL) in their bowl game. He played very well at both tackle spots and guard during his career at Texas A&M, though his play dropped off in 2014. Some feel he was just going through the motions and waiting on his pro career. When Ogbuehi is on his game he diplays all the traits you love to see in a tackle - size, athletic ability, length, agility and balance, etc. If Ogbuehi's hungry he could be a mid-round steal for one NFL team.

Alvin Dupree
Kentucky / 6'4 / 269 lbs
  • DE
  • [1] #22

Analysis

Dupree was recruited to Kentucky to play tight end, eventually transitioning to the other side of the ball. This past season he recorded 74 tackles, 7.5 sacks, and 12.5 tackles for a loss for the Wildcats. Dupree tested off the charts. At 6-foot-4, 269-pounds, he ran 4.56 [forty], had a vertical jump of 42-inches and a broad jump of 138-inches. Those are outstanding numbers combined with good production in Lexington. Dupree is an outstanding talent with tremendous upside. He looks like an ideal ‘SAM’ linebacker in a 3-4 defense.

Shane Ray
Missouri / 6'3 / 245 lbs
  • DE
  • [1] #23

Analysis

Football changed everything for Ray. He used the sport to stay out of trouble as a kid and now embarks in a career as a professional. Credit his high school coach, Tim Grunhard. Now Ray’s a coveted rush end or outside linebacker, depending on scheme. He’s got speed and strength off the edge to be an elite pass rusher. Ray can also make plays down the line showing his outstanding agility. At times he’s explosive, showing a great get off and closing speed for a big man. Ray only started 13 games at Missouri yet still posted 19 career sacks, 29 pressures and 36 tackles for a loss.

D.J. Humphries
Florida / 6'5 / 307 lbs
  • OT
  • [1] #24

Analysis

The Gators scored a huge recruiting win in 2012 when they landed this five-star recruit. Humphries had trouble adding weight [until of late] and struggled early [MCL]. He started 20 of 30 games at left tackle and graded out at 88.1% and had 67 knockdown blocks. In 2014 Humphries only gave up two sacks (both to Shane Ray from Missouri) in 2014. He shocked many by weighing in at 307-pounds at the Combine. There is still a ton of upside with Humphries. He has all the tools but needs to continue to develop and mature physically.

Shaq Thompson
Washington / 6'0 / 228 lbs
  • OLB
  • [1] #25

Analysis

You could make a strong case that Thompson is one of the finest athletes in this draft class. He’s a converted running back that projects as a weakside linebacker or strong safety depending on scheme. I see him as a more athletic Lavonte David (Bucs LB). The two have very similar measurables at the same stage. Like David, Thompson is somewhat undersized to be a linebacker but plays with outstanding closing speed, instincts and aggression. He makes plays all over the field and plays with a relentless attitude and terrific motor. I know he didn’t test well but just watch the film. Thompson is a big time player who will shine on Sundays in the pass happy league that is the NFL. He’s game is greatly suited for today’s game.

Analysis

Perriman is one of the fast risers over the past few months. He’s a wide receiver that played better and better each season at UCF. He posted some impressive numbers, finishing with 115 receptions for 2,243 yards and 16 touchdowns. To match his production are his measureables – Perriman is 6-foot-2, 212-pounds and ran exceptionally well at his pro day (sub-4.3). This is a physical receiver with deep speed and soft hands. He’s the son of former Miami Hurricane great Brett Perriman.

  • CB
  • [1] #27

Analysis

Jones was one of the Combine darlings after he nearly jumped out of Lucas Oil Stadium with a broad jump of 12-foot-3. That’s extraordinary. This is an explosive and versatile defensive back that played well at both safety and cornerback at UConn. He has a nice combination of size (6-1/199) and speed. Jones plays with good instincts, shows range and is good in run support. He started 40 games and finished with eight interceptions and 223 tackles.

Analysis

Tomlinson started in 53 straight games for the Blue Devils at guard. This past season he graded out at nearly 90% and recorded 124 knockdown blocks and 14 touchdown resulting blocks. This kid is athletic, strong, smart and really knows how to use his hands in the trenches. He gets off the ball well and shows toughness and plays scrappy. Tomlinson can drive block and pull and trap in the run game and shows the ability to be a good pass protector on the inside.

Phillip Dorsett
Miami (Fl) / 5'10 / 185 lbs
  • WR
  • [1] #29

Analysis

Dorsett smoked the Lucas Oil Stadium turf, running a 4.33 [forty] at the Combine. This was combing off the heels of an impressive Senior Bowl performance. Dorsett had a solid career with the Hurricanes, with 29 starts. He finished with 121 receptions for 2,132 yards and scored 17 touchdowns. Dorsett's game is very similiar to former Miami great Santana Moss. Speed. Speed. Speed. I was very impressed with how he caught the ball in Mobile. He showed soft hands and good body control. Dorsett will bring some lightning to one NFL offense.

  • S
  • [1] #30

Analysis

Randall made his way to Arizona State via the junior college route. In the desert he started 24 of 25 games playing both cornerback and safety. That should bode well for him in the NFL. As a Sun Devil Randall finished with 177 tackles, 15 tackles for a loss, six interceptions, four forced fumbles and 12 pass deflections. He has excellent closing speed and very good cover skills for a safety. He plays bigger than his 5-foot-11 frame when you factor in his 38-inch vertical and his strength (14 reps of 225-pounds).

Anthony played virtually all four years at Clemson, starting 36 times. He racked up an impressive 330 tackles, 9.5 sacks and 34.5 tackles for a loss. He has good size and is thick, strong and compact at 6-foot-3, 243-pounds. Anthony plays downhill and is physical. He can play inside-out and get to the perimeter to make plays on the outside. Anthony is also an effective defender in coverage.

Analysis

Brown played everywhere on the defensive front at Texas where he collected 165 tackles, 29 tackles for a loss and 8.5 sacks. He has good lateral quickness and agility. Brown gets off the ball well and plays with excellent leverage and balance. He’s strong and wide and shows a good burst when locating the ball. Brown had a terrific year with Charlie Strong and really elevated his draft status. His play translates to both a 3-4 and 4-3 front.
