11. Shaq Thompson OLB 6'2 225 Washington Junior

- Thompson is a great athlete that got some carries as a running back for the Huskies. He's very fundamentally sound as a hitter and is a turnover causing machine. The leader of the improving Huskies defense in 2014. NFL comp: Lavonte David

Previous Ranking: 64

12. Jaelen Strong WR 6'4 205 Arizona State Junior

- He is a big body physical receiver that possesses soft hands. JS can also go up and get it with the best of them. Another positive is that he is tough to bring down in any type of coverage. Won't blow by you but has enough speed to trick defenders. NFL Comp: Andre Johnson

Previous Ranking: 45

13. Mario Edwards DE 6'3 277 Florida State Junior

- The Seminoles' most feared defensive lineman. Edwards has come along very nicely since battling weight issues his freshman season. He doesn't have the glittering stats that other ends have but is often doing the dirty work in the trenches. NFL and Seminole legacy as father Mario, SR played for Dallas. Ideal as a 3-4 end.

Previous Ranking: 9

14. Landon Collins S 6'0 215 Alabama Junior

- The best safety in the country and it isn't close. NFL comp: Bernard Pollard

Previous Ranking: 60

15. Cedric Ogbuehi OT 6'5 300 Texas A&M RS Senior

- Was a steady performer for an Aggie offense that was rebuilding after Johnny Manziel and Mike Evans left for the pros. He's played both left and right tackle during his career. NFL Comp: Joe Staley

Previous Ranking: 2

16. Kevin White WR 6'3 210  West Virginia Senior

- It could be argued that White is the second best receiver in loaded class. He's certainly one of the best technicians at the college level. White is an excellent route runner with great body control to set up defenders for the fake. NFL Comp: Larry Fitzgerald

Previous Ranking: NR

17. Trae Waynes CB 6'1 185 Michigan State RS Junior

- Waynes is the best corner in the 2015 class. He's the leader of once again dominant Spartans defense and has prototypical size that teams crave these days. NFL Comp: Brandon Browner

Previous Ranking: 27

18. Andrus Peat OT 6'6 312 Stanford Junior

- A potential franchise left tackle in only his second year of starting at the position. He has great athleticism and shuts down any pass rusher that comes his way. NFL comp: Joe Thomas

Previous Ranking: 10

19. Shawn Oakman DE 6'9 275 Baylor Junior

- A good athlete with a power forward's body that holds up well at the point of attack. He's very raw in terms of the technical aspects of the end position. NFL Comp: JPP

Previous Ranking: 69

20. Daryl Williams OT 6'5 321 Oklahoma RS Senior

- One of the more intelligent tackles in the game. He knows how and when to use power and finesse very well. Another guy who has played both tackle positions. NFL comp: Jason Peters/David Stewart

Previous Ranking: 73
