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 and some huge trades already in the works, team needs and these picks may change drastically by version 3.0. Links to earlier rounds are below:
97.) Tennessee Titans – OG John Miller, Louisville
The Titans couldn’t run the ball last year, but with last year’s first round pick Taylor Lewan and Miller taking over for free agent bust Andy Levitre on the right side there should be more holes for Bishop Sankey to run through.
98.) Tampa Bay Bucs – DE Trey Flowers, Arkansas
Last year’s starting DE Adrian Clayborn is a free agent and wasn’t very productive anyway. Flowers’ slow 40-time at the combine hurt his stock a little, but he is a lunch-pail base end who will be solid against the run while occasionally getting pressure on the QB. Great value in the 4th round.
99.) Oakland Raiders – DE Za’Darius Smith, Kentucky
Had an inconsistent college career production wise, but got consistent pressure on the QB. He dominated at the lower level college all-star games during draft season and has done enough to go a round higher than this. The Raiders desperately need some young pass rushers and Smith will be in the mix for a starting job as a rookie.
100.) Jacksonville Jaguars – OT Donovan Smith, Penn St
The Jags couldn’t protect their QB or open holes in the run game. Smith should eventually take over at the right tackle position and could be a mauling run blocker who can hold his own in pass pro.

101.) New York Jets – RB Jeremy Langford, Michigan St
One of the surprises of the combine, who proved he has the speed to bounce runs outside and has already proven he can run between the tackles. Langford is a good all around back without much upside, but without any glaring flaws either.
102.) Washington Redskins – OT Rob Havenstein, Wisconsin
Skins HC Jay Gruden likes big linemen and they don’t get much bigger than Havenstein. He had a sub-par combine, but his tape is impressive and is a mauling run blocker who could help rebuild the Skins running attack. Havenstein is a more effective pass blocker than given credit for and uses his long arms well to keep his QB clean.
