After two days of the 2015 NFL Draft, 99 names have come off the Board, 72 of which were in my top-100.  There are a lot of good players still available today, and as many of you already know, the third day of the NFL Draft tends to be the true franchise-building rounds.  Here’s my list of the top-25 players still available (note:  players with an 8.0 grade or better are considered first-round prospects.  7.5 – 7.9 is a second-round grade.  7.0 – 7.4 is a third-round grade.  6.5 – 6.9 is a fourth-round grade.)


1.  La’El Collins, OT, LSU (Grade:  8.0)

2.  T.J. Clemmings, OT, Pitt (Grade: 7.9)

3.  Grady Jarrett, DL, Clemson (Grade:  7.8)

Bryan Perez’s 2015 NFL Draft First-Round Observations

Written by Bryan Perez on May 1, 2015

The first round of the 2015 NFL Draft is in the books, and while we won’t truly know whether a team “hit” or “missed” on their pick for a few seasons, it’s worth taking a look at how the round played out and whether there were any questionable decisions made.

The top of the round went as expected, with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers selecting Jameis Winston (QB, FSU), followed by the Tennessee Titans picking Marcus Mariota (QB, Oregon).  I’m more confident in Mariota’s likelihood for NFL success, largely because of his off-the-field character and decision making.  That said, you can’t question either team’s decision to go with the obvious top-two quarterbacks.  If they both pan out, it will be a long time before Tampa or Tennessee is picking this high again.

The Jacksonville Jaguars decided that Dante Fowler (EDGE, Florida) was their guy despite the best player in the class, (read more…)

Bryan Perez’s 2015 NFL Draft Best Available: Day Two

Written by Bryan Perez on May 1, 2015


The first round of the 2015 NFL Draft didn’t have quite as much drama as we had hoped, with only two trades and the Titans staying put at No. 2 overall for Marcus Mariota (QB, Oregon).  The first half of the first round went as many had expected with a few minor exceptions, but things started to shift a bit after the Chargers traded up to the No. 15 pick for Melvin Gordon (RB, Wisconsin).

Players like Nelson Agholor (WR, USC), Cedric Ogbuehi (OT, TAMU), Shaq Thompson (LB, Wash) and Stephone Anthony (LB, Clemson) were all selected between picks 20-32 resulting in a lot of talented players with first-round grades to slip into Day 2.

The following list is the best available players as we start the second day of the 2015 NFL Draft.  Remember:  A grade of 8.0 or higher represents a first-round grade on my scale.

New England Selects Malcom Brown

Written by Matt Horn on April 30, 2015


The New England Patriots finished off Day 1 with their 32nd selection of DT Malcolm Brown from Texas.  With the loss of Vince Wilfork in the offseason, Brown will be a much needed addition to the Patriots front seven.x

Packers Select Damarious Randall (1.30)

Packers Select Damarious Randall (1.30)

The Green Bay Packers picked CB Damarious Randall with the 30th overall pick.  Randall was the fifth defensive back picked in the first round.

The Packers have a lot of holes on defense but the biggest is at inside linebacker.  With Eric Kenricks on the board I’m surprised the Packers went secondary, but Randall could work his way into the Packers defense later in the season.

Detroit Selects Laken Tomlinson (1.28)

Detroit Selects Laken Tomlinson (1.28)

The Detroit Lions took one of the top offensive guard in the draft in Laken Tomlinson.  Laken has been one of the most consistent offensive linemen in this year’s class, starting 52 games at Duke.

Baltimore Selects Breshad Perriman

Baltimore Selects Breshad Perriman

The Baltimore Ravens saw a steal in WR Breshad Perriman and they took advantage with the 26th overall pick.  Perriman is one of the most physical receivers in the draft but many are worried about his catching ability.

Perriman will be a much needed addition for Baltimore who lost receivers Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones.  Perriman will be a solid, big target for QB Joe Flacco.

Arizona Selects DJ Humphries

Written by Matt Horn on April 30, 2015


The Arizona Cardinals selected Florida OT DJ Humphries with the 24th pick in the first round.  Humphries will contribute to a Cardinals offensive line that was one of their biggest flaws in 2014.

Philadelphia Selects Nelson Agholor (1.20)

Philadelphia Selects Nelson Agholor (1.20)

The Philadelphia Eagles made a surprising move drafting WR Nelson Anglehor.  With receivers Jaelen Strong and Breshad Perriman still on the board, the Eagles saw something special in Anglehor.

Anglehor was USC’s leading receiver for his junior and senior year, with both he had at least 900 yards.  His pro style will be an interesting fit with Sam Bradford and Chip Kelly’s spread background.
