2015 NFL Mock Draft Picks 16-20

16. Houston Texans- Todd Gurley, RB

You're probably wondering that out of all the teams in the NFL, why would the Texans, who have Arian Foster select Todd Gurley? Well, Todd Gurely would be too good for the Texans to pass up on, at number sixteen. The Texans don't have a quarterback, and it does not look like they are going to be able to get one this offseason. Brian Hoyer does not really count so they better make sure they can run the ball. Foster gets too many injuries and is unreliable. 

17. San Diego Chargers- Ereck Flowers, OT

I'd say San Diego's number one priority is protecting Phillip Rivers, but there has been some rumors that the front office could trade Rivers if they can somehow trade up for Marcus Mariota. That could happen and if it does, the Chargers top priority would be finding decent blocking for Mariota or Rivers. Offensive tackle is definitely in play at number seventeen and the Ereck Flowers selection would mean that King Dunlap or D.J Fluker would move inside.

18. Kansas City Chiefs, La'el Collins, G/OT 

The Chiefs had pass protection issues this past season. Only six teams surrendered more sacks and I doubt Andy Reid will pass on an offensive lineman in the first couple of rounds. Reid loves drafting lineman, and he's drafting La'el Collins who could easily go as high as number ten.

19. Cleveland Browns- D.J. Humphries, OT/G

The Browns have expressed the fact that they want to improve their offensive and defensive lines. This would be a great selection. The front office wanted to upgrade Mitchell Schwartz last year, with plans to move him inside. 

20. Philadelphia Eagles, Byron Jones, CB

The Eagles are obviously looking for a new cornerback to help their secondary. They signed Byron Maxwell, but they still need one more upgrade at this position. The most athletic player in the draft in the entire 2015 NFL Draft, Byron Jones will obviously interest the Eagles, who would love to select a cornerback like him. And yes, Jones could go this early. He showed lots of athleticism in the NFL Scouting Combine.

Signing Off....
