2015 NFL Mock Draft Post Combine: Baltimore Ravens Stick to Defense

2 of 3

11. Minnesota Vikings

DeVante Parker. 11. player. 60. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Vikings went OL or DB here, but they still have a huge need for playmakers to surround a young Teddy Bridgewater with, especially with Cordarrelle Patterson flopping as an X receiver. Plus, Parker and Bridgewater played together at Louisville. It’s a match that is perhaps too obvious.. Wide Receiver. Louisville

12. Cleveland Browns

Oregon. Marcus Mariota. 12. player. 53. Will the Browns take another quarterback in the first round, again? As crazy as it seems, they have been doing it for years and still haven’t found the right guy. Management hasn’t exactly thrown their support behind a recovering Johnny Manziel either. It’s a shocking possiblity but a realistic one, nonetheless. Sorry Browns fans.. Quarterback

13. New Orleans Saints

player. 15. The Saints have other issues after a very disappointing and un-Saints like season in 2014, but defense is still the most glaring. Rob Ryan needs players, and “Bud” is certainly that. A versatile and productive pass rusher with physical gifts and technique, Dupree even has some coverage skills to boot.. Defensive End. Kentucky. Alvin Dupree. 13

14. Miami Dolphins

14. player. 59. The Dolphins should probably go wide receiver here if somebody falls, regardless of what happens with the diva Mike Wallace. But landing top corner Waynes would be a coup for a team that desperately needs a guy to pair with Brent Grimes and an (at times) dominant defensive front.. Cornerback. Michigan State. Trae Waynes

15. San Francisco 49ers

Arizona State. Jaelen Strong. 15. player. 42. The 49ers are most likely going to let Michael Crabtree walk, leaving them with a very unimpressive group of receivers with castoffs like Stevie Johnson. Strong may not possess elite speed, but he has the size, body control, and hand eye coordination to be a reliable chain mover for Colin Kaepernick.. Wide Receiver

16. Houston Texans

player. 10. With statuesque quarterback Ryan Mallet likely to return under center for the Texans in 2015, they need guys up front that can give him time to throw. Peat is that guy, possessing the strength and athletic ability that scouts covet in a blindside pass protector. Plus, he’s an absolute mountain of a man at 6’7″ and 313 pounds.. Offensive Tackle. Stanford. Andrus Peat. 16

17. San Diego Chargers

T.J. Clemmings. 17. player. 13. The Chargers need upgrades all over the offensive line after Phillip Rivers was beaten like a drum in 2014. Clemmings is a raw talent who has prototypical size and undeniable upside. Some solid coaching and technique work could easily turn Clemmings into a top tackle, which is impressive for a guy who played defense until 2012.. Offensive Tackle. Pittsburgh

18. Kansas City Chiefs

Dorial Green-Beckham. 18. player. 124. Sure it was cute that the Chiefs went the entire season without scoring a touchdown via wide receiver. If they would like to be a competitive football team, however, that has to change. DGB was born to score touchdowns, a la Calvin Johnson. It’s a match made in heaven, regardless of his past transgressions.. Wide Receiver. Oklahoma

19. Cleveland Browns (via Buffalo Bills)

Michigan. Devin Funchess. 19. player. 53. Speaking of teams that have the worst receiving corps in the NFL, the Browns are also getting ready to let tight end Jordan Cameron walk in free agency. Funchess ran a little slow at the combine but he is a matchup nightmare, a guy who can go up and grab passes all over the field. Right now, that’s what the Browns desperately need.. Wide Receiver

20. Philadelphia Eagles

54. The only safety worthy of first round consideration, Collins is a steal here. While the Eagles could just as easily go corner, Collins has a knack for creating big plays that fits the Eagless defensive mantra.. Safety. Alabama. Landon Collins. 20. player
