2015 NFL Mock Draft 5.0: What happens if the Tennessee Titans pick 2nd?

The Titans have been the talk of the NFL Draft for the past month. Will they stay put or move pick two?

Phil Sears-USA TODAY Sports

1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jameis Winston, QB, Florida State (Scouting report)

Ron Jaworski stirred the pot a bit by saying that he believes the Buccaneers will take Marcus Mariota at number one, but I'm still not buying it.  Jameis is Lovie's guy.  Get the contract worked up.

2. Tennessee Titans: Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon (Scouting report)

No trade? The Titans stand on the second overall pick and select Marcus Mariota.  Forget system, Mariota has shown me enough to believe that he can adapt to any offense in the league.  Perhaps most importantly, he has a great head on his shoulders.  Mariota is the guy you want to be the face of your franchise.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars: Dante Fowler Jr. (Scouting Report)

The Jaguars always seem to surprise on draft day, so this pick is sure to be wrong.  However, everything keeps coming back to Fowler.  I could see them going with Vic Beasley or maybe even Shane Ray, but they seem to have honed in on Fowler.

4. Oakland Raiders: Vic Beasley, EDGE, Clemson (Scouting Report)

So this really isn't a need, but if you're putting Vic Beasley on one side and Khalil Mack on the other side, you're going to do some damage.  You can't have too many pass rushers in a division that features Phillip Rivers and Peyton Manning.

5. Washington Redskins: Leonard Williams, DL, USC (Scouting Report)

Washington has an overwhelming need for an edge rusher, but Leonard Williams has fallen right into their lap.  There's no way they could pass.

6. New York Jets: Amari Cooper, WR, Alabama (Scouting Report)

Time to surround Geno Smith with firepower.  I'd be interested to see what he could do with Marshall, Cooper and Decker.

7. Chicago Bears: Kevin White, WR, West Virginia (Scouting Report)

The Bears will replace Brandon Marshall with Kevin White here.  Who knows how long Jay Cutler will be in Chicago, but you might as well give him every opportunity to succeed while he's there.

8. Atlanta Falcons: Shane Ray, EDGE, Missouri (Scouting Report)

There seems to be about a 99% chance that the Falcons will take a pass rusher with this pick.  Dan Quinn visited Ray in Missouri this past week, so I'll connect those dots here.

9. New York Giants: Brandon Scherff, OG, Iowa (Scouting Report)

I'm sticking with this pick again this week.  Scherff makes too much sense for the Giants not to take.  He's a plug and play guard and he could also step in and play some right tackle.

10. St. Louis Rams: Andrus Peat, OT, Stanford (Scouting Report)

The Rams will probably have to add a tackle at some point in this draft, unless they bring back Joe Barksdale.  With this pick, they'll slide Greg Robinson to the right side and plug in the quicker Peat on the left side.

11. Minnesota Vikings: Marcus Peters, CB, Washington (Scouting Report)

The Vikings can't pass on a supreme talent like Peters.  He fills a need and is probably one of the best players left on their board.  If he can keep it clean off the field, you're looking at an all pro player.

12. Cleveland Browns: DeVante Parker, WR, Louisville (Scouting Report)

If Johnny Manziel gets straightened out, he'll need something to work with.  Easing Manziel into the NFL scene will be much easier with legitimate threats on the outside like Bowe and Parker.

13. New Orleans Saints: Trae Waynes, CB, Michigan State (Scouting Report)

Waynes seemingly locked up a top 20 selection when he ran in the 4.3s at the combine.  I'm not a huge fan of his, but it seems like the NFL is.  The Saints are always in need of secondary help, so they'll look to Waynes to lock down one side of the field.

14. Miami Dolphins: Danny Shelton, DT, Washington (Scouting Report)

Adding Shelton here would give the Dolphins the nastiest front four in all of football.  Suh and Shelton clogging the middle of the field would shut down nearly every rushing attack in the NFL.

15. San Francisco 49ers: Arik Armstead, DL, Oregon

The 49ers need defensive line help all of the sudden.  Armstead can slide into a five tech role nicely.  Big upside pick here.

16. Houston Texans: Cam Erving, C, Florida State

The more I think about this pick, the more it makes sense.  Erving was great when he kicked inside this past year and would be a nice replacement for Chris Myers.

17. San Diego Chargers: La'el Collins, OT, LSU (Scouting Report)

If Rivers does stick around, he'll need some protection.  Collins can play on either side and immediately upgrade your rushing attack in the process.

18. Kansas City Chiefs: TJ Clemmings, OT, Pittsburgh (Scouting Report)

Eric Fisher moves back to the right side and the Chiefs insert Clemmings on the left.  Clemmings has shown massive growth in just two seasons at the tackle spot.

19. Cleveland Browns:  Carl Davis, DL, Iowa (Scouting Report)

The Browns need a talent infusion along their defensive line and Davis will do just that.  He has the size to play nose, but is quick enough to handle the five tech spot too.

20. Philadelphia Eagles: Bud Dupree, EDGE, Kentucky

The Marcus Smith pick already looks like a bust.  The Eagles will try again here and land of the of best pure athletes in the draft.

21. Cincinnati Bengals: Preston Smith, DE, Mississippi State

The Bengals get my number one pure 4-3 pass rusher in this class.  Smith displays an excellent blend of size, quicks and strength.

22. Pittsburgh Steelers: Randy Gregory, EDGE, Nebraska (Scouting Report)

The Steelers start their rebuild with one of the most talented players in this class.  He's thin, but he can get after the passer.

23. Detroit Lions: Byron Jones, CB, Conneticut

The Lions get some much needed secondary help here in the form of Byron Jones.  He's the most athletic of the corner prospects this season, showing plenty of speed and fluidity.

24. Arizona Cardinals: Todd Gurley, RB, Georgia (Scouting Report)

I'm sticking with this pick.  The Cardinals have the luxury of being able to wait on Gurley to get healthy.

25. Carolina Panthers: D.J. Humphries, OT, Florida

Humphries is a plug and play on the left side.  This should save Cam Newton from having to play with Michael Oher protecting his left side.

26. Baltimore Ravens: Breshad Perriman, WR, UCF (Scouting Report)

Baltimore has virtually nothing left at the receiver postion.  Perriman is a great athlete that just needs a little polish.

27. Dallas Cowboys: Kevin Johnson, CB, Wake Forest

The Cowboys bypass their running back need for now and add Johnson to their secondary.  Their backend was one of their few issues from last season.

28. Denver Broncos: Eddie Goldman, DT, Florida State

Wade Phillips gets his nose tackle here.  Goldman can provide stability in the middle of the defense, anchoring against the run.

29. Indianapolis Colts: Cedric Ogbuehi, OT, Texas A&M

Ogbuehi is gaining some momentum here lately.  I don't think he gets past the Colts, who need to add more protection for Luck.

30. Green Bay Packers: Ronald Darby, CB, Florida State

The Packers almost have to go corner with this pick.  Darby will provide them with speed and some press ability.

31. New Orleans Saints (from Seattle): Malcom Brown, DL, Texas

Brown will give the Saints more beef up front.  He can slide in and play the five tech role immidately.

32. New England Patriots: Michael Bennett, DT, Ohio State

The Patriots have two large needs at defensive tackle and corner, so they'll knock one out here.  Bennett can slide into defensive line rotation, adding another pair of fresh legs.

Round 2
