Arnold's Top 15 Mock [Version 2.0]
By Jason Arnold
Special to gzl-football.com

1.1 San Diego Chargers -- Richard Sherman, CB, Stanford ... It's a pretty obvious move/choice. He's the best CB prospect in a long time. The upside is incredible with him and barring injury, he should be a perennial All-Pro. I personally do not agree with the trade down from New England under any circumstances, he's just too good.

1.2 San Francisco 49ers -- Josh Gordon, WR, Baylor ... What's not to like. You get a 6'3 WR with size and speed. The San Francisco offense gets a big time boost. There's a reason why all of his WRs are on the trade block right now.

1.3 New York Jets -- Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson ... The Jets offense features AJ Green a band of aging, mediocre WRs. It's between Evans and Watkins here. And while Evans is larger and has plenty of speed to spare, I feel like Watkins' speed is going to be too much to pass on.

1.4 Chicago Bears -- Demarius Stonewall, CB, Nebraska ... I could really see them going with Khalil Mack and waiting on a CB. However, I'm going to go ahead and mock a CB here. Stonewall makes sense, he has a ton of upside and will be a rare breed of 6'4 CB.

1.5 New Orleans Saints -- Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M ... Well, the Saints get a legit #1 WR now. He has size and speed to spare. There's really not much separation from the top 3 WRs, in my opinion.

1.6 Washington Redskins -- Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo ... Man, that defense is a wreck. They could go ILB, OLB, CB, or S and no one would think twice about it. But, their LB situation seems to be the most dire at this time. Mack's an elite talent in his own right.

1.7 New Orleans Saints -- Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State ... He could end up going before Stonewall, depending on GM preferences. But, I think New Orleans is destined to go WR/CB in some order or another.

1.8 New England Patriots -- Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina ... How fortunate are the Patriots. This is the guy most people mocked to them at 1.01 and now, they get him at 1.08. I think there's a real chance, with the elite talent at WR and CB that he could fall a bit.

1.9 Chicago Bears -- Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn ... Some like Token over him, but I don't see it. He's a larger body, stronger, and is more athletic overall, to spare. The only thing Token has on him is higher block ratings, but 85/85 is more than high enough for Robinson and they will go up. He could be a surprise to go higher, he has everything to be a generational OT.

1.10 Minnesota Vikings -- Ricky Austin, ILB, Texas ... Ricky is a stud at LB. I'm just having a hard time finding a landing place for him in the top 10. In Minnesota, he'd play OLB and be a stud there, too. He would be a filler ILB when Kuechly does get hurt. He'd offer a lot of versatility. Minnesota's LB situation isn't that good outside of Kuechly, either.

1.11 Oakland Raiders -- Aaron Drogan, WR, Clemson ... The Raiders could use some help at WR considering most of theirs are in the twilight of their careers or just simply not very good. Whichever of the top 4 WRs falls, I see Oakland grabbing them.

1.12 Oakland Raiders -- Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh ... The Raiders' second pick will be quite interesting. They could go in several different directions. However, I went with a BPA approach and took Donald for them. He offers incredible versatility, he can play DT or DE.

1.13 Miami Dolphins -- Trent Murphy, DE, Stanford ... Well, to sum it up. Their DEs suck. For a team that runs a 4-3 defense, you need that pass rush from the DL and Murphy will give you that.

1.14 New England Patriots -- Bo Callahan, QB, Wisconsin ... The Patriots have tried to move Ryan Mallett and I think they know he's not the answer at QB. Callahan gives them a legit franchise QB.

1.15 New Orleans Saints -- Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama ... After revamping the secondary with an earlier first rounder, they have a chance to land a truly special safety to the mix. He would be a day one starter/upgrade at either FS or SS.
