With the 1st Overall pick in the 2015 OM NFL Mock Draft......the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Select:
Jameis Winston, Quarterback, Florida State, 6'-4", 231lbs, 4.97
STRENGTHS:Possesses all the natural physical tools you look for in today's NFL. He's big, athletic, has a strong arm and moves well inside the pocket. As for the intangibles, the list includes poise, anticipation, toughness, vision, leadership and a competitive fire. He's the total package, physically. When on his game, Winston deliveres strikes before his receivers are out of their breaks or even looking for the ball. He handles pressure well, evading, resetting and speeding up his process when needed, listening to his internal clock. Generally makes excellent decisions with the ball, showing the ability to pepper well-thrown short and intermediate routes as well as driving strikes down the alleys. Shows nice touch on traditional deep balls as well as inside the red zone. While Winston struggled during the first half of several games in 2014, he regularly impressed with his ability to make adjustments and rally the Seminoles from behind, making clutch throws with the game on the line.
WEAKNESSES: Where he's causing scouts to question his pro-readiness is off the field where a series of questionable incidents have raised concerns his maturity and character, including a sexual assault charge, shoplifting and using vulgar language in the student union. Some teams may take Winston off their boards entirely. Some scouts also believe he needs to quicken and shorten his delivery in order to be consistently successful at the next level, as he tends to wind up when he throws, lacking the quick release NFL teams desire. He has NFL arm strength, so the elongated delivery was not a big issue at the college level. Winston still has a tendency to stare down his targets and will make poor decisions with the ball down the field when hemmed between the tackles and forced to get rid of the ball under pressure. At times, he?ll backpedal and throw while off-balance, rather than stepping into his throws, negating his natural throwing power. He has proven especially vulnerable to underneath defenders dropping in front of his intended targets ? a significant issue given the frequency of zone-blitzes in the NFL as compared to college.
IN OUR VIEW: On the field, Winston is a natural. He has the requisite physical skills with his size, arm strength and athleticism along with the mental process as a passer to pick apart defenses. His anticipation, instincts and chemistry with his targets come easy to him and it's something that scouts search for within quarterback prospects.
Simply put, Winston has a rare skill-set and that's why he has the makings of a top 10 selection or even No. 1 overall pick.
However, his string of immature actions off the field will continue to be a hot topic among NFL decision makers. Winston also had several slow starts and games with multiple interceptions in 2014, although he also showed the ability to consistently rally his team from behind and make plays in the clutch.
PLAYER COMPARISON: Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh ? Like Big Ben, Winston has all of the attributes to become an NFL star and champion, including the size, strength, poise and arm talent. Both have a tendency to hold the ball too long, putting undue pressure on their offensive line in an attempt to make the big play. Both also, unfortunately, have proven vulnerable to poor choices off the field, as well.
Selection made at 10:50 pm EST, March 5, 2015

With the 2nd Selection in the 2015 NFL Draft, the Tennessee Titans select
Lance Zierlien of NFL.com's Scouting Report on Leonard Williams
Supremely gifted interior lineman with length, athleticism and elite power. Lined up just about everywhere along the line at one point or another. Able to jolt offensive linemen with powerful hands and is extremely hard to redirect for offensive linemen once he gets going downhill. Explosive hip snap to leverage blockers and is rarely moved from his gap. Often a read-and-react two-gapper and plays peek-a-boo with running backs while discarding blockers at will when he's ready to tackle. Too much play strength for zone blockers to cross-face him. Fires out with low pad level when playing the run and is difficult to submarine on short yardage. Has feet and brute force to recover and get back into a play after being beaten early. Dangerous pass rusher from twist game, showing big closing burst. Effort rusher who will eventually get home if single-blocked. Beginning to develop spin move as pass-rush counter. Showed intriguing potential as a pass-rushing end in space. Frame able to hold more weight and muscle.
Is a little late out of his stance off the snap. Must learn to consistently fire hands out as weapons. Slow to transition from run stopper to pass rusher when teams throw on first down. Pad level rises and legs straighten out as pass rusher. Base will narrow, slowing momentum and limiting full potential of his bull rush. Hasn't learned to set up offensive linemen or string together pass-rush moves yet. Doesn't always play to capacity and pursuit is lacking when play heads away from him. Still very raw. Wins with physical tools over skill.
Enormously powerful defensive lineman. Has the look and feel of the biggest, strongest kid on the playground but hasn't figured out how to unlock his natural gifts and consistently dominate the rest of the kids on the playground just yet. Williams can play in an odd or even front, and is able to hold the point as a two-gapper or disrupt upfield. With coaching and more experience, Williams should be able to match the athleticism with the power and become a consistent Pro Bowler with a ceiling that goes even higher than that.
Selection Made @ 12:07 AM (CST) on Friday, March 6th.

The Oakland Raiders Select Dante Fowler JR DE Florida. Selection Made at 12:48 PM 3/15/15 MSD
Dante is currently looked at as a OLB in a 3-4 but we think he projects well in our 4-3 system. We envision a pass rush combination similar to our nemesis in Denver. Khalil Mack and Dante should help to slow down the passing games we see on a weekly Basis.

With the 6th overall pick, the NY JETS select Marcus Mariota, QB (Oregon).
Won the Heisman Trophy, Maxwell Award, Davey O'Brien National QB Award and Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award in 2014. He was also selected as Walter Camp Player of the Year, Associated Press Player of the Year, Walter Camp first-team All-America and Associated Press first-team All-American. He was also selected as Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year and 2015 Rose Bowl Offensive MVP. In 41 career starts, he rushed for 15 touchdowns and passed for 105 against just 14 interceptions. He also caught a pair of passes, both resulting in touchdowns. Completed requirements for his undergraduate degree in general science at the end of the 2014 fall term (in less than four years) with a GPA of 3.22. As a redshirt sophomore in 2013, he was a Manning Award finalist and a semifinalist for the Maxwell Award (college player of the year), the Davey O'Brien Award (national quarterback award) and the Walter Camp Award (most outstanding player). He claimed a share of Oregon's Most Outstanding Player honors for a second year in a row while also being named the program's Most Inspirational Player in a vote of his teammates. In 2012 as a redshirt freshman, he was honorable mention All-American and Pac-12 Offensive Freshman of the Year, becoming the league's first freshman quarterback to earn first-team all-league honors in 23 years. At Saint Louis High School in Honolulu, Hawaii, was rated the No. 12 quarterback in the nation by Rivals.com. At the 2010 National Underclassman Combine, he was named Quarterback MVP and won the camp's "Combine King" and "Fastest Man" awards, as he was clocked in 4.48 seconds in the 40-yard dash.
Strengths Quick-twitch quarterback. Rare straight-line speed for the position. Defenses must account for ability outside the pocket. Asked to handle more each season by Ducks coaches and delivered consistent production. Stands tall in pocket with three-quarter delivery and quiet release. Keen sense of where trouble lurks and almost never gets baited into a dangerous throw. Threw multiple interceptions in a game just three times over 41 career starts. Adequate accuracy and ball placement from the pocket. Able to make off-balance, difficult throws. Can uncork throws quickly and without resetting feet when necessary. Can climb the pocket and deliver strikes when he trusts the edges of his protection. Silky smooth when asked to roll out and delivers on time with sound mechanics. Has balance and feet to escape collapsing pocket and will look to strike through the air rather than just bolting as a runner. Size, speed and enough skill to eat in the red zone. Considered extremely coachable by scouts, who also love his willingness to play hurt. Very humble and leads by example. Family and heritage are extremely important to him.
Weaknesses Benefits from an offense that is predicated on simplified reads. Offense able to create wide-open receivers after busted coverages at times. Needs to improve resetting feet when maneuvering pocket to improve accuracy and power. Tends to "see" pass rush too often. Will drop eyes and look to escape pocket rather than stepping to available pocket space. Frequent trips outside pocket increase opportunity for injury. Pocket feel is very average. Stepped into sacks he had no business taking. Didn't have to throw to tight windows often. Average processor on field. Still learning when to get rid of the ball and move to next play. Slow to make anticipatory throws and can improve patience in allowing combo routes to mature rather than rushing the read. Missed obvious pre-snap blitzes. Drive accuracy needs work. When cutting it loose, ball tends to sail on him a bit. Arm strength is adequate but inconsistent to field side. Needs to bring hips through throws to increase zip into tight windows in NFL. Fumbled 27 times during his career.
Bottom Line Scheme-based quarterback who will face the same challenges that several quarterbacks before him have faced in terms of learning how to read defenses and go through progressions. The tape was less kind to Mariota than expected, but his size, athleticism and consistency of football character throughout his career are necessary traits in becoming a good-to-great quarterback. Mariota's ability to create outside the pocket will help win games here and there and buy him time as he plies his craft. However, to reach his potential and match the play with the traits, he must develop more poise and feel in the pocket and improve his field vision. Mariota is no lock to be a great NFL quarterback, but his floor is much higher than any of the quarterbacks drafted in 2014.

With the 7th pick Da Bears select "slick" Vic Beasley - OLB, Clemson
With the bears moving to 3-4 they are happy to land the guy with the best 1st step in the draft.
STRENGTHS: Beasley might have the best first step in the draft. His burst off the ball frequently catches tackles off-balance and he's able to cross their face. Beasley has the flexibility to be able to duck their reach and turn the corner, showing excellent speed to close. Beasley complements his speed rush with a balanced and tight spin back to the inside and a surprisingly effective bull rush. Beasley is certainly smaller than scouts would prefer but he is more powerful than he looks, sporting broad shoulders, long arms and well-developed upper body. He's able to sneak his hands under the tackle's reach and can walk unbalanced pass-blockers into the pocket. Beasley has excellent pursuit speed, showing the fluidity to stalk unsuspecting ball-carriers from behind and the explosive closing burst that jar the ball loose. Beasley shows good awareness of the ball, ripping at it when he sees the opportunity and has seven career forced fumbles. Graduated prior to the 2014 season with a degree in Sociology.
WEAKNESSES: Despite his natural ability as a pass rusher, Beasley does struggle against the run as he seems to lose track of the play at times and will take bad angles or even appear unmotivated when the play flows to the opposite side of the line, and when he takes on blockers too high, he's easily swept out of the play. He offers little in terms of ability to anchor or set the edge with power against the run, as he simply lacks the girth to hold position against tackles and even tight ends at times.
COMPARES TO: Von Miller, Denver Broncos: Like the 6-3, 246-pound Miller, Beasley does not possess the size and strength to set the edge consistently but few are better off it on their way to the quarterback.

With the 9th pick in the 2015 Orange Mane Mock Draft, the New York Giants proudly select:
Alvin 'Bud' Dupree, LB/DE, Kentucky
Height: 6' 04"
Weight: 270 lbs.
Arm: 32 5/8"
Hand: 9 3/4"
40-yard dash: 4.54
20-yard dash: 2.65
10-yard dash: 1.6
225 lb. bench: -
Vertical jump: 42"
Broad jump: 11' 06"
3-cone drill: - 7.49
Short shuttle: - 4.47
2014: 12 games started at defensive end, 74 tackles, 12.5 TFL, 7.5 sacks, 1 interception, 2 FF
2013: 11 games started at defensive end, 61 tackles, 9 TFL, 7 sacks, 2 FF
2012: 12 games started at linebacker, 54 tackles, 12.5 TFL, 6.5 sacks
2011: 12 games played at linebacker, 12 tackles, 2.5 TFL, 2.5 sacks
Analysis/Breakdown (from NFL.com)
Freakish athlete with chiseled frame. Outstanding power with ability to rag-doll tight ends at will. Should be an above average edge-setter. Good transition from playing run to rushing quarterback in play-action. Explosive closing burst. Willing thumper when he has a shot on running back. Can drop into space and play zone. Raw, but learning with huge growth potential as a player. Has strength at the point to be a physical edge-setter. Scouts give him plus grade for character.
Tall but not long. Wins with athleticism over skill at this point. Some scouts believe his instincts are below average, leading to hesitation. Will get caught taking bad angles to the ball. Needs to improve hand fighting. Still raw rushing the passer. Doesn't possess a go-to pass-rush move. Appears to lack urgency in-game.
Dupree is an explosive, powerful athlete with a background in basketball. While he's been productive at Kentucky, his tape doesn't always do his potential justice. He must continue to improve as a pass rusher, but his traits are undeniable. Difference between being good and great might be his coordinator.
Rationale for the pick from Shananahan:
The Giants need to step up their pass rush, basically. This dude has the physical tools to be a monster rushing the passer with room to improve and grow. Quick first step. He doesn't have the stats, but he's got the raw potential New York seems to like with their edge defenders and then some. I don't know how many people are familiar with the 'Waldo formula' which attempts to measure and quantify explosion in rush defenders, but Dupree pretty much detonated it, turning in Megatron-esque vertical and broad jump numbers at 270lbs.
The chart below shows measured 'explosion index', if you will, of edge rushers over the past ten years. Dupree is the red circle, basically off the chart.
However much faith you put in those numbers and the relative safety they may lend the pick, this guy is able to get after the QB. He spent a lot of time dropping into zone or reading the backfield in college, but with professional coaching, strength training and a scheme which frees him to rush exclusively he could turn into a monster.
Pick made at 9:57 CST. The two players I strongly considered taking in this spot will now be drafted back-to-back.

AMARI COOPER, WR, ALABAMA
The Rams are excited to give newly acquired QB Nick Foles another weapon in this offense to go along with Kenny Britt, Tavon Austin, Tre Mason and company. Amari Cooper has outstanding measurables and possesses the talent to be a true #1 WR in the NFL. His speed and athleticism was constantly on display in the SEC. He has the ability to stretch the field, has great hands, and even will block in the run game. The Rams are absolutely thrilled to be adding this talent to their offense.

With the 11th Overall Pick, the Kansas City Chiefs select Kevin White WR, West Virginia
One of the Chiefs’ biggest issues at receiver was their ability to get open. Dwayne Bowe’s speed has decreased over the years, and when he does get the ball, it isn’t long before a defender is able to catch up to him. White has the speed to beat corners off the line and maintain good separation downfield. Kansas City didn’t have a red zone receiver in 2014. The Chiefs’ red zone offense can be productive with Travis Kelce, Knile Davis, and the always lethal Jamaal Charles, but if you throw in a viable &-goal wideout, it makes Kansas City’s red zone offense even tougher to defend. White’s concentration and firm grip give him the ability to get jump balls in the end zone, a dimension that Kansas City lacked in 2014. Andy Reid’s offense uses a lot of screens and short throws to the outside, and wouldn’t you know it, White is a great screen receiver. The Chiefs used De’Anthony Thomas in the screen game this year, but his light bulid makes him easy to bring down, despite his speed. White weighs in at 210, a full 30 pounds heavier than Thomas, and has tremendous acceleration. with a couple decent blocks, White can turn a short screen pass into a 50-yard gain.
All these attributes make it seem like White is almost too good of a fit for Kansas City. Tons of mock drafts show the Chiefs taking Dorial Green-Beckham in the first round, but Kevin White could bring a lot to the table for the Chiefs’ offense.

With the 12th pick in the 2015 Orangemane Mock Draft the Cleveland Browns select
Danny Shelton, NT, Washington
Shelton was the first Huskie to earn first-team Academic All-American since 1991. He led the nation in fumble recoveries with five and had 16 tackles for loss in 2014. He finished second on the team with 93 tackles. Was first-team Academic All-Pac-12 as a junior. Started his final 40 games at nose tackle and played 53 games total. Named first-team all-state as a high school senior in Seattle as both an offensive and defensive lineman. Also participated in track and field as a thrower, winning the shot put state championship as a senior. Was a standout wrestler, too.
STRENGTHS Bends well for a big man and has ability to play with leverage. Space-eater who is able to maintain good positioning against double teams. Consistently gets his hands inside offensive linemen first. Controls, sees it and sheds to make tackles. Surprising ability to swat cut blocks and chase stretch plays laterally. Played a high percentage of Washington's defensive snaps. Has the strength and athleticism to dominate in the running game.
NFL COMPARISON Vince Wilfork
BOTTOM LINE With his thick frame and powerful upper body, Shelton has moments where he can dominate at the point of attack. He was forced to chase sideline to sideline due to the nature of Pac-12 offenses, but when he faced downhill competition like Stanford, he stepped up. Shelton is an above-average interior pass rusher for a man his size, thanks to his surprising athleticism. He is a fit in a two-gap scheme and could benefit from playing fewer snaps than he was forced to play at Washington. He has an All-Pro ceiling, but must show a greater consistency of effort.

With the 16th pick in the draft, the New Orleans Saints are very happy to select Jaelen Strong, WR Arizona State.
New Orleans needs a short term replacement for the production of the departed Kenny Stills, and a long term replacement for Marques Colston in terms of the body type and skill set as he is going to be 32 this year. Strong is a physical king sized possession WR, with underrated speed and tons of athletic ability, which is a great pair up with the smaller Brandin Cooks. I've had my eye on this prospect for a long time, ever since Miami was in a battle for his services along with Arizona State, which he eventually chose.

Eddie Goldman, Nose Tackle, FSU
Goldman fills a huge need on the Chargers' D line and is good value here IMO, I thought SF was going to scoop him up.
BOTTOM LINE His power at the point of attack and ability to discard blockers and actually make plays rather than just eating space will have 3-4 teams very excited about their potential nose guard of the future. However, his lack of pass-rushing prowess could limit just how high he rises on draft boards.
Pick made at 8:52 MST.

La'el Collins, OT/OG, LSU
Named second-team All-America by The A.P. as a senior in 2014. Won Jacobs Blocking Trophy as the top offensive lineman in the SEC. Started all 13 games at left guard as a sophomore, then started 26 games at left tackle his junior and senior seasons. Was voted team captain and was recipient of the Charles McClendon Award (most outstanding player on the team). LSU coaching staff credited him with 222.5 knockdown blocks in his 45-game career. Was second-team All-SEC as a junior, honorable mention All-SEC as a sophomore and was CBSSports.com Freshman All-American in 2011. Was a Parade All-American out of Redemptorist High School in Baton Rouge, La., and ranked as the No. 1 recruit from Louisiana by Rivals.
STRENGTHS Thick through chest and displays upper-body strength. Has strong hands and will snatch and control less active defenders. He takes defenders for a ride once he's engaged on the move. Loves to mash and intimidate opponents. Mean player. Can center pass rushers and end their attempt in pass pro. Utilizes length in pass protection and is acclimated to a pro-style offense. Able to run-block and pass-set laterally. Well-schooled and technically proficient. If he gets beat on a play, he comes back even harder on the next snap. Finisher. Can come in and play guard or tackle.
SOURCES TELL US "I love the guy on tape. Big-time finisher in the run game and we need that. " -- AFC offensive line coach
NFL COMPARISON Maurkice Pouncey
BOTTOM LINE Brawling right tackle or guard prospect in the NFL who has had a level of success in hyper-competitive SEC West. Lacks athleticism to be a consistent left tackle, despite his snaps there in college. Collins plays with a mean streak that is evident in every game, and could come in and start right away in a power-running game as a guard.

WITH THE 21ST SELECTION IN THE 2015 NFL DRAFT,
THE CINCINNATI BENGALS SELECT:
OT ERECK FLOWERS, MIAMI.
Generally I provide a highlight video and some interview quotes from the athlete here, but I didn't find a good pancake cutup and Flowers apparently never gives interviews.
EVALUATORS" OPINIONS ON FLOWERS:
"His greatest Strength ~ indeed: his Calling ~ is as a potentially dominant Road Grader in the Running Game. I believe that he's got genuine All Pro Potential there at either Right Guard or Right Tackle, preferably in a Power Blocking Scheme.
And he could manage Left Guard or even Left Tackle, too, but they wouldn't be optimal.
Whichever way it goes, and wherever he plays, I believe that he'll maximize his Potential and make an enormous, positive Impact on his Team. He is by all Accounts a voracious Worker and an intelligent kid, fueled by a genuine Love for The Game, who's willing to Do The Work, as evidenced by improved Mechanics throughout the latter course of the 2014 Campaign, as well as outstanding Field Vision. Drive + Talent + Intelligence = Spectacular Trajectory!!"
"STRENGTHS: Shows quickness and balance getting to the second level when run blocking. Broad shoulders and a wide base to cover a large area in pass protection and drive defenders off the ball in the run game.
WEAKNESSES: Can struggle against the speed of undersized pass rushers, allowing defensive ends to cross him inside and trip up running backs in pursuit. Tendency to be a beat late off the snap in load road environments.
Compares To: Andrew Whitworth, Bengals -- Massive frames make these big men vulnerable to speed rushers. But massive frame, length and combative style made Whitworth an underrated foundation stones in Cincinnati. Flowers has the same potential."
"For a 6'6" 325 offensive tackle Flowers moves incredibly well and is fully capable of being left alone on the edge to cover a quarterback's blindside. There are a number of flaws with Flowers though, which leads to some inconsistent performances. When Flowers has his pad level and knee bend right, he's nearly impossible to beat, however his fundamentals can get sketchy at times which causes balance and anchor issues. Flowers is experienced, tough and constantly improving so there's plenty of reason to believe he'll work out his technique issues and capitalize on his full potential."
COLLEGE STATS AND AWARDS:
2012: Started at RT as a True Freshman
2013: Started at LT
2014: Started at LT, 2nd Team All-ACC
HOW FLOWERS FITS WITH THE BENGALS:
After this season, 2015, all three OTs currently on the Bengals will be Free Agents along with about half the team. It's very likely they will not be able to afford to bring back both Andrew Whitworth and Andre Smith. And Eric Winston as the primary backup is ancient. Ereck Flowers is the epitome of the type of OT the Bengals look for. Huge, Strong, and with Length. Flowers is extremely young, he's only 20, and he needs some technique refinement. That's fine, in typical Bengals tradition, their draft picks tend to sit a year or two before playing, thus Flowers will have ample time to develop. He projects as either a LT or RT, and could even be used as a RG in a worst case scenario. And yeah, Kevin Zeitler, the RG, is a free agent after this year too. Point being, he'll have somewhere to start in 2016. I feel he'll most likely replace Andre Smith at RT and we'll see how he develops to see his fit as a possible future LT. I think he will end up there after Whitworth's time ends, though I expect he'll be extended another year or two.
I have Flowers as my #14th Overall player. My #1 RT. And top remaining OT. He's a prototype mauling RT that showed well in a zone scheme in college but projects, in large part to his ridiculous strength and length, very well to a power scheme in the NFL. The Bengals are a run first team in the rugged AFC North, which is filled with 34 defenses. Size and strength are very important on the O-line. Flowers provides that in spades. Due to his extreme youth, he also provides incredible long term upside that with proper technique work will transfer to LT. The fact the Bengals don't need him to play in 2015 and can provide him a redshirt year to clean up the technique issues makes this an ideal landing spot.

2012: 6 games started at defensive end, 20 tackles, 1 TFL
2010: played in 8 games as a reserve defensive end, 3 tackles, 1 TFL
Analysis/Breakdown (from NFL.com)
Long, athletic frame. Former high school basketball player with great foot quickness. Moves like a tight end in space with an ability to zero in on targets and finish them in the screen game. Elite change-of-direction talent and knee bend. Can peel off his block to pick up a delayed blitzer. Snaps off twisting defender to guard and finds new assignment. Gets depth with smooth, fluid kick-slide and does a good job of mirroring. Can secure a shoulder and torque defender out of a run play. Hands carry jarring power. Explodes out of stance into defender. Has mean streak. Accelerates feet after contact and finishes. Has length and strength to redirect around pocket when beaten around the edge. Has the talent to make any block asked of him in the running game.
Inexperienced at the position and still raw. Will fall off blocks when his base gets too narrow on angle blocks. Will duck his head into contact in run game. Must learn to slow down and gather himself when climbing to second level. Has a hitch before he punches in pass protection and then gives away length with wide hands. Works with technique on pass sets but loses that technique suddenly at the high point of the pass rush, causing him to have to scramble to redirect around arc. Showed a lack of technique and confidence after being beaten too often during Senior Bowl practices.
Like Duane Brown, Clemmings played high school basketball and was a late switch to the offensive tackle position in college. There are holes in his protection technique and he must learn to trust his feet. Clemmings will continue to learn the position and improve. He has the physical traits to become a Pro Bowl left tackle if he can handle the move to that side. Confidence could become an issue with his pass protection unless he develops selective amnesia when beaten.
Rationale for the pick from BowlenBall:
I'm a big fan of fortifying the offensive and defensive lines in the early rounds -- the Steelers team needs are mostly on the defensive side of the ball this year, but the value just wasn't there at the back half of the 1st round. Clemmings has a good chance to start at guard or right tackle at some point in 2015, and then to slide over to left tackle in a year or two once he gets some seasoning.
If you haven't read it yet, here's a great article on Clemmings from Jenny Vrentas as SI.com: http://mmqb.si.com/2015/02/18/nfl-dr...gs-pittsburgh/

Cameron Erving, C/OG/OT, Florida State
"Erving isn't here just because he's versatile," Kiper wrote. "It's pretty rare to find a player who can offer up good tape at center, guard or tackle -- all positions that Erving was asked to play in his time at Florida State. And while the effectiveness at each is varied, he's a legit plug-and-play prospect at the center position. He's got great feet and was outstanding in getting to the second level at that position. A rare case in which a move inside makes him a better prospect." ESPN Stats & Information's Sharon Katz recently passed along a stat that held our attention and will do the same in war rooms considering a center early: Florida State doubled its yards-before-contact rush average on interior runs in the final five games after shifting Erving inside.
STRENGTHS Keeps busy and works to secure blocks in run game. Good foot quickness into pass set. Consistently in ready position with good hand readiness in pass sets. Uses good hand placement and has natural timing with hands. Converted defensive tackle who will continue to improve in the NFL with more experience at center. Displays good snap-to-step quickness. Uses quickness to attack defender and begin his grind much earlier than when he played tackle. Competes and is a willing learner. Can get to second level and make cut-off blocks. Has athleticism to pull and offers versatility along the line.
WEAKNESSES High-cut with tapered lower body, lacking power in legs. Pops straight up in pass rush. Susceptible to bull rush. Had issues handling the edge speed of Clemson's Vic Beasley in 2014 and his days of playing tackle are likely over. Relies on lean rather than hip thrust to generate power. Taught to absorb and control as a pass protector and needs to establish more pop in punch.
SOURCES TELL US "He plays tough, but I wouldn't call him an intimidator out there. He's a work in progress, but he's going to keep getting better as he learns how to play center." -- ACC defensive line coach
NFL COMPARISON Eric Wood
BOTTOM LINE Former defensive lineman who is still learning the nuances of offensive-line play after just two seasons as a starter. Has the length and foot quickness to play tackle, but film work shows that he will have a much more successful career at center. Possesses skill set and temperament to show rapid development. Could be a Day 1 starter, but a year of seasoning would help.

Even if AP becomes a Cardinal there is no reason to ignore BPA and a dire need for the Cardinals.
