With the NFL Franchise Deadline in the rear-view mirror as well as the NFL Combine, we are starting to get a clear picture of what players are going to be available during free agency as well as how each player performed during the combine.

This is my latest version of the 2015 NFL Mock Draft, things will change between now and the end of April however without taking possible trades into consideration or my own bias on certain player, this is how I have the draft playing out.

Be sure to check out the Mock Draft Data Base at Eat Drink and Sleep Football.

1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers need a quarterback and Jameis Winston is their man. He is the top quarterback in this draft and the Bucccaneers believe that his off the field problems won’t be an issue.. Quarterback. Florida State. Jameis Winston. 1. player. 48

2. Tennessee Titans

35. While the Tennessee Titans say they are “All In” on current quarterback Zach Mettenberger, I believe the whole staff is not. The Titans draft Marcus Mariota here and go into camp with a true quarterback competition.. Quarterback. Oregon. Marcus Mariota. 2. player

3. Jacksonville Jaguars

52. Leonard Williams is the top overall player in this year’s draft. If he slips past Tennessee the Jags will not hesitate to get a player they believe can start day one and get after Andrew Luck.. Defensive Tackle. Southern California. Leonard Williams. 3. player

4. Oakland Raiders

Wide Receiver. West Virginia. Kevin White. 4. player. 28. The Raiders need to give quarterback Derrick Carr some weapons. Out off all the receivers in this draft Kevin White is emerging as the favorite going into the draft. Although Amari Cooper may be more polished Kevin White has the potential to become a better playmaker.

5. Washington Redskins

6. New York Jets

30. The New York Jets have had a need a CB ever since Darrelle Revis was traded. After many tries the Jets have yet to fill that void Revis left. Don’t expect the Revis to sign with the Jets this off-season. I think the Jets draft Trae Waynes to hopefully fill that void.. Cornerback. Michigan State. Trae Waynes. 6. player

7. Chicago Bears

57. The Bears are going to be looking to fill many holes on the defensive side of the ball. I think they start up-front with nose tackle Danny Shelton.. Defensive Tackle. Washington. Danny Shelton. 7. player

8. Atlanta Falcons

8. player. 44. The Falcons need pass rushers and they are in a great position in this draft. With a great selection of pass rushers to choose from, Atlanta will select whoever falls to them at number eight and Vic Beasley does just that.. Linebacker. Clemson. Vic Beasley

9. New York Giants

Defensive End. Nebraska. Randy Gregory. 9. player. 31. If Randy Gregory fall to number nine I don’t see any reason why the New York Giants will pass up on him. Some scouts have had Gregory as high as no. 2 to the Titans. However at the combine Randy Gregory weighed in at 235 pounds. Raising question as to if he is to small for a 4-3 defense. I don’t think that will stop the Giants if he is available.

10. St. Louis Rams

51. The Rams need to fill their offensive line. However if Amari Cooper is still available I think they go out a get him. Amari Cooper brings a complete skill set the Rams receiving core, giving quarterback Sam Bradford some additional help.. Wide Receiver. Alabama. Amari Cooper. 10. player
