Team & GM
Selection Details
Pick Team GM Player Position School Blurb Trade Notes
65 Tampa Bay Rabble Tre Jackson OG Florida State After selecting Jameis Winston in the first round, they select his collegiate bodyguard to protect him at the NFL level.
66 Tennessee Jason Gerod Holliman S Louisville Great value at a position of need.
67 Jacksonville Michael Ronald Darby CB Florida State Gus Bradley is tripling-down on that defense that was really bad in 2014. Now he gets his corner, Ronald Darby out of Florida State. Darby is a good, rangy but speedy corner that can tackle. He'll need some work in run support but the Jags are happy to grab a press-man corner for their defense.
68 Oakland Landon Nate Orchard DE Utah The Raiders select Nate Orchard, DE, Utah. Raiders need pass rushers, Nate Orchard is a pass rusher. Even the Raiders can solve that equation.
69 Washington Gary Cody Prewitt FS Ole Miss The Redskins need a free safety in the worst possible way, and Prewitt fits the bill.
70 NY Jets O.C.C. Devin Funchess WR Michigan With Brandon Marshall on the one side and 6'4 Devin Funchess on the other, even a guy like Geno Smith is going to complete a couple of passes per game.
71 Chicago Jason Derron Smith FS Fresno State Have I mentioned how bad the Bears secondary is?
72 St. Louis Jason Hroniss Grasu C Oregon Have I mentioned how bad the Rams offensive line is?
73 Atlanta Tom Xavier Cooper DT Washington State The Falcons are thrilled he is there to fortify the interior of their defensive line.
74 NY Giants Rabble Damarious Randall FS Arizona State The Giants need a safety, and Randall is the best FS in the draft. Happy happy.
75 New Orleans O.C.C. Arie Kouandijo OG Alabama Kouandijo is a big guy with NFL bloodlines who'll plug the Saints leaky offensive line.
76 Minnesota Michael David Johnson RB Northern Iowa With all the uncertainty surrounding AP, the Vikings need an insurance policy. David Johnson is a productive back that can do a little bit of everything.
77 Cleveland Landon Jeff Heuermann TE Ohio State Browns are desperate for talent at TE, Jeff Heuerman is probably the last TE on the board before the talent there falls off a cliff.
78 New Orleans O.C.C. Devin Smith WR Ohio State With a staggering 27.2 yards per reception, Smith is one of the best vertical threats in football and will open up the Saints offense in previously unseen ways. from Miami
79 San Francisco Gary Denzel Perryman ILB Miami (FL) The 49ers were hoping that Stephone Anthony would still be on the board, because they love athletic linebackers, but they are happy to get the next best thing in Perryman.
80 Kansas City Michael D'Joun Smith CB Florida Atlantic The Chiefs need an athletic corner that can cover receivers in the AFC West. D'Joun Smith can fill a role for them almost immediately, which will help their back end.
81 Buffalo Michael Jaquiski Tartt SS Samford The Bills need a physical presence in their secondary, though a bit raw Tartt is starting his climb up the charts in a class that is struggling to produce good safety options.
82 Cleveland Landon Rashad Greene WR Florida State Cleveland happily selects Greene to further boost their receiving core. from Houston
83 San Diego Jason Michael Bennett DT Ohio State Not a great fit for a 3-4 defense, but too good to pass up this late.
84 Jacksonville Michael T.J. Yeldon RB Alabama Jacksonville needs a few more playmakers on offense and Bradley isn't so sure Robinson is the back for his system. from Philadelphia
85 Cincinnati O.C.C Phillip Dorsett WR Miami (FL) Dorsett (no relation to Tony) ran a 4.33 forty, and is probably the biggest deep threat in the draft after averaging 24.2 yards per reception in his final year at Miami.
86 Arizona Michael Steve Nelson CB Oregon State With Cromartie leaving via Free Agency, now the Cardinals can bring over Steve Nelson who plays a lot bigger than his 5'10 frame would suggest. They shouldn't skip a beat with the help of the Honey Badger and now Nelson.
87 Pittsburgh Gary Josh Shaw CB USC With the retirement of both Troy Polamalu and Ike Taylor, Pittsburgh can't believe Shaw is still there so they smile and gladly take him.
88 Detroit Rabble Grady Jarrett DT Clemson After losing both starting defensive tackles in free agency, the Lions find a dynamic young penetrator to pair up with Haloti Ngata.
89 Carolina Jason Anthony Harris FS Virginia Great fit for both player and team. Harris possesses great ball skills, but needs time to put on NFL strength and learn to take better angles. In Carolina he can be a spot player in 2015, and compete for a full time role in 2016.
90 Baltimore Tom Doran Grant CB Ohio State The Ravens grad the best corner left to upgrade their secondary.
91 Dallas Tom Trey Flowers DE Arkansas Two words for why the Cowboys happily take Flowers: SPARQ scores.
92 Denver Rabble Cedric Ogbuehi OT Texas A&M Ogbuehi is a first-round talent; the Broncos run to the podium in a white hot heat when they see him still on the board...
93 Indianapolis O.C.C Daryl Williams RT Oklahoma The 6-5, 327 Williams is a plug-and-play right tackle who'll protect Andrew Luck's right side for the next ten years.
94 Green Bay Gary Taiwan Jones ILB Michigan State The Packers are very happy to get a guy like Jones to help their front seven.
95 Seattle Tom David Cobb RB Minnesota Seattle gets a backup and potentially an eventual replacement for Beast Mode, who can be pulled off the field just as well as Marshawn Lynch when trying to score from the one.
96 New England Landon Mario Edwards, Jr. DE Florida State Edward fell quite a ways.. and right into the waiting arms of the Patriots
97 New England Landon Ibraheim Campbell SS Northwestern Campbell is just another BPA pick for the Pats. Compensatory Pick
98 Kansas City Michael Tyler Lockett WR Kansas State Even with Jeremy Maclin being added, it never hurts to add another dynamic receiver. Tyler Lockett makes it look easy at times, KC was so surprised nobody snagged him. Compensatory Pick
99 Cincinnati O.C.C Jesse James TE Penn State The Bengals pick the outlaw Jesse James, TE, Penn State, with one eye on their need at DE and with the other eye on their jersey sales. Compensatory Pick
