NFL Mock Draft - Christmas & New Years Edition

In our last NFL Mock Draft, the draft started with two defensive players.  This time, the newly crowned Heisman Trophy winner, Marcus Mariota and last seasons winner, Jameis Winston, kick things off.  Oregon and Florida State go head-to-head on New Years Day in the Rose Bowl and the College Football Playoff. However, I think the Tennessee Titans could easily go after Leonard Williams to help stop the run as their run defense is ranked 2nd to last in the NFL.  New York Jets fans would LOVE that scenario!

Oakland owns the worst offense in the league, when it comes to yards gained, and giving Derek Carr, Amari Cooper, is a good way to help change that.  So is letting Latavius Murray lead the team in carries in 2015.

Alex Smith has yet to throw a TD to a WR this season.  Not quite sure how that is even possible, but they will have to address it via the draft and probably have to add a veteran via free agency like Nate Washington or Eddie Royal.

I think the San Diego Chargers and Philip Rivers would love for Melvin Gordon to fall to them in the draft and is a great spot for a RB to play.  Ryan Mathews is a FA and his injury history will prevent him from being viewed as a 3 down back.  Gordon can jump into a backfield, with Donald Brown and Danny Woodhead/Branden Oliver, that desperately needs an upgrade.
