2015 NFL Mock Draft 3.0: Round 4
Shanna Lockwood-USA TODAY Sports
With the first three weeks of free agency in the books and over half of the pro days completed, it’s time for mock draft 3.0. Our Bears were relatively quiet early in free agency considering their $30M plus in cap room, but made some nice value pick ups from the second tier of free agents. I’m not complaining, I think the new regime needs to take some time to see what they have on the roster and how those players fit into the Bears new schemes on both sides of the ball. The cap room is going to be there next year as well and by that time the Bears brass will have a better idea of where the roster holes are.

2015 NFL Mock Draft 3.0 – 4th Round
100.) Tennessee Titans – DT/DE Gabe Wright, Auburn
The Titans switch to a 3-4 couldn’t have gone worse last season, but they spent some free agent cash on fixing their pass rush and now they add some help at DE.
101.) New England Patriots – RB David Cobb, Minnesota
The Pats seem to rotate power backs during the season, but Cobb could be a work-horse, 20 carry a game type back. He has good feet for a 220+ pounder, vision to find the right hole, and is tough to stop in the open field.
102.) Oakland Raiders – DT Marcus Hardison, Arizona St
Could team with promising 2nd year DT Justin Ellis to give the Raiders a solid interior core for the next few years. Ellis is a solid run stopper, while Haridson has an explosive first step and could provide an interior pass rush.
103.) Jacksonville Jaguars – RB Jeremy Langford, Michigan St
The Jags have a plodding power back (Gerhart) an a small scat-back (Robinson), but neither guy is the answer as a full-time RB. Langford ended his college career with 15 consecutive 100 yard+ games and shocked everyone at the combine with a 4.42 40-time. Langford could take over as the Jags primary back offering a little bit of everything: power, receiving skills, pass blocking, and the speed to bounce runs outside.

104.) New York Jets – RB David Johnson, Northern Iowa
It’s between Langford and Johnson for the RB who had the best draft season. Johnson was the talk of the Senior Bowl after a great week of practice and highlight reel 19-yard TD run in the game. He’s an excellent receiver, has great size (6’1 | 224), quick feet, and a smooth running style that reminds me of Matt Forte.
105.) Washington Redskins – CB Senquez Golson, Mississippi
This is too low for Golson, who could be one of the best slot corners in the draft. He’s small (5’9 | 176), but scrappy and has excellent ball skills. He had 10 interceptions last season including one in the end zone to seal the win vs Alabama.
