2015 NFL Draft – 22nd Overall Pick – Steelers Draft Bud Dupree

With the 22nd pick, the Steelers selected linebacker Bud Dupree.

Continuing a youth movement on defense, the Steelers add a linebacker in Dupree that they hope can do better than former first round pick Jarvis Jones. Dupree had a very productive college career with excellent instincts. The knock on him was moving a little too slow during the action. But the former basketball player has the ability to be explosive.

For IDP purposes, another edge rusher that won’t mean much unless for big play leagues. Could contribute in pass protection as well.

2015 NFL Draft – 21st Overall Pick – Bengals Draft Cedric Ogbuehi

With the 21st overall pick, the Bengals drafted lineman Cedric Ogbuehi from Texas A&M.

A value pick, the Bengals can draft Ogbuehi with an eye on him recovering from an injury during bowl season. However, he has the potential to be a starting left tackle for the long-term. His presence will only enhance Jeremy Hill’s value as Ogbuehi has great run blocking skills.

2015 NFL Draft – 20th Overall Pick – Eagles Draft Nelson Agholor

With the 20th pick of the draft, the Eagles draft Jeremy Maclin’s replacement at receiver in Nelson Agholor.

Algholor doesn’t have great size at 6′ but has good route running skills and hands. He’ll also contribute on punt returns.

He joins a high-powers offense and could contribute statistically right away. For the other Eagles players, it helps the case of Sam Bradford and should take some heat off Jordan Matthews. Algholor will never be a top-tier WR option but his pick could allow Matthews to be. In Algholor’s case, he probably won’t crack the top two tiers of receivers in rookie drafts.

2015 NFL Draft – 19th Overall Pick – Browns Draft Cameron Erving

With their second pick of the first round, the Browns draft offensive lineman Cameron Erving.

Erving has only played offensive line for two years but has great size and is flexible as far as a position. He joins a Browns line that already has Joe Thomas and (for now) Alex Mack and finished as the sixth best line in the NFL. Will probably be better as an interior lineman.

For dynasty purposes, will only help the case of whichever running back ends up with the job in Cleveland between Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West. Of course, it’ll help whichever quarterback wins the job as well.

2015 NFL Draft – 18th Overall Pick – Chiefs Draft Marcus Peters

With the 18th pick, the Chiefs draft cornerback Marcus Peters.

After a season that saw no receiver catch a touchdown, the Chiefs go in a different direction with Peters. It’s a risk, not just because the Chiefs failed to address their receiver depth, but because of Peters’ character concerns. He was kicked off the team in college before entering the draft. But his raw talent was enough to be drafted in the first round and will enter a stable situation in Kansas City.

For IDP leagues, he won’t be a consideration.

2015 NFL Draft – 17th Overall Pick – San Francisco Drafts Arik Armstead

In the first pick of the post-Harbaugh era, the 49ers take edge rusher Arik Armstead from Oregon.

A physical freak at 6’7″, Armstead is still so raw that he’ll need plenty of work and mentoring and won’t start right away. He stands up too often and just wasn’t very productive in college. However, being surrounded by talented linebackers like NaVorro Bowman and Aldon Smith should help the process. If he can realize his potential, him and Smith will bookend a super imposing edge rush duo.

For IDP purposes, his ceiling is comparable to Smith as a sack specialist who will never rack up many tackles.

2015 NFL Draft – 16th Overall Pick – Texans Draft Kevin Johnson

The Texans zigged when we thought they’d zag and draft cornerback Kevin Johnson from Wake Forest.

Johnson is small at well under 200-pounds but was a three-year starter with impeccable coverage skills. He can play in any scheme and is mature enough to start right away. He won’t be an asset in IDP leagues but should improve an already good, young Texans defense. If he can excel in coverage, it’s more time for J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney to rack up the sacks.

2015 NFL Draft – 15th Overall Pick – Chargers Draft Melvin Gordon

Surrendering a 4th and 5th round pick to move up from 17th, the Chargers take running back Melvin Gordon.

After losing Ryan Mathews to free agency, the Chargers needed a runner between the tackles. Gordon should take that role immediately and take the load off quarterback Philip Rivers. For dynasty purposes, Gordon is in a good situation and should be a top-three pick in rookie drafts. He does go to a team with the 29th ranked offensive line but Gordon will be around awhile and will be given plenty of opportunity to be a starter for a long time.

2015 NFL Draft – 14th Overall – Dolphins Draft DeVante Parker

The Dolphins make DeVante Parker the third receiver taken with the selection of DeVante Parker at 14.

Parker joins a crowded receiving corps along with Jarvis Landry and Kenny Stills. However, his height and hops make him another deep threat for Ryan Tannehill and he should start immediately. But the situation isn’t ideal and he will be lumped in a crowded second-tier of receivers in rookie drafts.

2015 NFL Draft – 13th Overall Pick – Saints Draft Andrus Peat

The Saints keep improving their offensive line with the selection of Peat with the 13th pick.

Peat is huge at 6’7″ and is polished enough to start immediately. He should begin his career at right tackle but could potentially end up at left tackle. The Saints offensive line already ranked 11th last year but with Peat and Max Unger, who came over in a trade for Jimmy Graham, but should be solidified giving Drew Brees and the rest of the offensive time to operate.
