Jaime Valdez-USA TODAY Sports
With the 2015 Combine finished and Pro Days starting this week, I figured it was time for another mock draft. If you want to check out Mock 1.0, click the link. With free agency starting next week a lot of team needs will change as will some of these picks in version 3.0

33.) Tennessee Titans – DT/DE Arik Armstead, Oregon
After switching to a 3-4 scheme in 2014, the Titans run defense was awful. Armstead will give them a solid 5-tech DE who already has the ability to hold his ground in the run game and at just 20 years old is only going to get better. Armstead could develop into a Calais Campbell type player in a year or two.
34.) Tampa Bay Bucs – A.J.Cann, South Carolina
The Bucs interior line was a mess last year and Cann will be an instant upgrade who should help keep QB Jameis Winston clean the next few years. He’s a powerfull run blocker as well who could be an instant starter for Tampa.
35.) Oakland Raiders – OT D.J Humphries, Florida
It may take a year before Humphries takes over at left tackle, but he has the footwork, athleticism, and angry demeanor to be an All Pro at the position eventually.
36.) Jacksonville Jaguars – OT Eric Fisher, Oregon
The Jags need to do a better job of protecting their franchise QB Blake Bortles and Fisher is polished enough to step in and help right away. He’s also a team leader, extremely smart player, and potential Pro Bowl left tackle. Great pick for the Jags.
37.) New York Jets – CB P.J. Williams, Florida St
Former HC Rex Ryan was begging for a big corner last year and now they get one in Williams. His play was inconsistent for the Seminoles, but at times looked like a future lock down corner in the NFL.
38.) Washington Redskins – CB Byron Jones, UConn
If any team is going to overreact to Jones world record breaking combine measurements, it’s probably going to be the Redskins. I’m not saying this is a bad pick as Jones has great size, was a team captain, and clearly has NFL athleticism.
