Most assuredly we will get people in here who will make asinine arguments that if a 15 yard penalty then dbs will be committing PI on purpose when they are beat.
But that is such a stupid argument because if they are beat that bad they aren't in a position to commit PI. This isn't an issue in the college game.
I sorta like where you're going but 15 yards is not enough penalty. I think 25 yards is a better fit for the pro game. Anything under 25 yards is a spot foul and anything over is max 25 yards. The NFL is a pass happy league and they want scoring to be very high, it's what makes most fans happy. They will never change this rule. The last thing they want is to have CB's even think about a PI call on a huge play knowing the max penalty is only 15 yards.
