2015 NFL Mock Draft 4.0: Round 4
Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports
With two weeks to go before the draft, it’s time for my 2nd to last mock draft. With free agency pretty much wrapped up, team needs are fairly static at this point so there may not be much difference between my last two mocks barring any significant trades, off-field arrests or news of more failed drug tests from the combine.
As for our Bears, they have been active both early in free agency and on the second-tier market. They added depth at a number of thin positions, giving them more flexibility in the draft and allowing them to use the “best player available” strategy which may not have been an option with some many glaring holes on the defensive side of the ball.

2015 NFL Mock Draft 4.0- Round 4
100.) Tennessee Titans – G Josue Matias, Florida St
The Titans are paying G Andy Levitre way too much money to be mediocre and they may look to cut his contract next season and develop Matias as his replacement. Matias has great instincts in pass pro, but doesn’t move well and needs work on his run blocking technique.
101.) New England Patriots – RB David Cobb, Minnesota
The Pats always seem to rotate power backs during the season, but Cobb could be a work-horse, 20 carry a game type runner. He has good feet for a 220+ pounder, vision to find the right hole, and is hard to bring down in the open field.
102.) Oakland Raiders – DT Gabe Wright, Auburn
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 Wright has an explosive first step, a good motor 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 during 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. The Jets don’t have a RB that can catch right now and Johnson would give them a dangerous 3rd down back.
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 a huge win vs Alabama.
