Browns Get Flashy, Draft Duke Johnson In 3rd Round
The Cleveland Browns drafted Miami running back Duke Johnson with the No. 77 overall pick in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Spin:
The Browns are obviously not sold on the running backs, Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell, they selected last season. Who can blame them? Neither running back was able to emerge as a clear front-runner to the starting job. Part of the problem could have been too many "cooks in the kitchen" as the Browns also had veteran Ben Tate in the backfield at the beginning of last season, but Tate was released in the middle of the season. This pick makes the Browns backfield a three-headed monster once again.

Chiefs Add Playmaker With 3rd Round Pick, Draft Chris Conley
The Kansas City Chiefs selected Georgia wide receiver Chris Conley with the No. 76 overall pick in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Spin:
The Chiefs wide receiver issues have been well documented. Kansas City didn't have passing touchdown to a wideout last season, so the position has been a big focus for the Chiefs this offseason. They signed Jeremy Maclin in the offseason and now added Conley. Conley didn't excell in college, but he didn't have a great quarterback with him last season. Conley should compete for the other starting wide receiver spot opposite Maclin.

D Brees (NOS)

Saints Draft Brees' Successor, Garrett Grayson
The New Orleans Saints drafted Colorado State quarterback Garrett Grayson with the No. 75 overall in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Spin:
So the first quarterback on Day 2 has finally been taken. This is a very interesting pick. The Saints had salary cap issues in March that led to the team losing Jimmy Graham and Kenny Stills. They did sign running back C.J. Spiller, but this team is rebuilding and has seemingly found Drew Brees' replacement. Brees is 36 and probably has just two or three really good years left.
02:31 AM

Falcons Get Physical, Draft RB Tevin Coleman
The Atlanta Falcons selected Indiana running back Tevin Coleman with the No. 73 overall pick in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Spin:
Coleman was a very productive runner in college, rushing for 3,219 yards and 28 touchdowns in 452 career rushes. Coleman can also pass protect, so there is a good chance he starts right away with only Devonta Freeman and Antone Smith left at running back on the Falcons roster. With Kyle Shanahan as his offensive coordinator, Coleman has high upside in fantasy this season.
02:02 AM

Texans Steal WR Jaelen Strong In 3rd Round
The Houston Texans selected Arizona State wide receiver Jaelen Strong with the No. 70 overall pick in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Spin:
Strong had first-round grades in a lot of mock drafts, so this is a steal for the Texans. He had a wrist injury at the end of the season last year, so perhaps that scared some teams away. Strong will replace Andre Johnson and play next to DeAndre Hopkins, and if Houston can get consistency out of their quarterback position, Strong could be a fantasy sleeper like he might be in this draft.
01:57 AM

Seahawks Add Speedy WR Tyler Lockett With 3rd Round Pick
The Seattle Seahawks picked Kansas State wide receiver Tyler Lockett with the No. 69 overall pick in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Spin:
Mel Kiper compared Lockett to Phillip Dorsett, who the Colts selected at the end of the first round, so the Seahawks certainly get value here in the early third round. The weakess position on the Seahawks roster is wide receiver, so Lockett could be that missing playmaker this team has needed since it traded away Percy Harvin.
01:54 AM

Raiders Continue To Draft Offensive Players, Take TE Clive Walford
The Oakland Raiders selected Miami tight end Clive Walford with the 68th overall pick in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Spin:
Well one think is for sure, Trey Wingo love him. Walford posted the most impressive numbers of any tight end in Miami football history, which is quite impressive considering Jeremy Shockey, Bubba Franks, Kellen Winslow and Greg Olsen are just some of the recent tight ends to have gone to Miami. This is another solid pick for the Oakland Raiders.
01:12 AM

Ravens Fill Need, Draft TE Maxx Willaims
The Baltimore Ravens selected Minnesota Tight End Maxx Williams with the 55th overall pick in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Spin:
The Ravens are clearly restocking their skill players to help quarterback Joe Flacco. Baltimore traded up in front of rival Pittsburgh, who was also interested in Williams, to draft the former Golden Gophers tight end. He comes from a very athletic family and should compete with the always injured Dennis Pitta for the No. 1 tight end job in 2015.

Lions Add Depth To Backfield, Draft Ameer Abdullah
The Detroit Lions selected Nebrask running back Ameer Abdullah with the No. 54 overall pick in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Spin:
Detroit averaged just 1.8 yards before contact while running the ball in 2014, so their blocking certainly needs help. Rather than trying to fix the entire offensive line, the Lions took Abdullah, who loves running straight ahead and hitting defenders. He will be a great complement to Joique Bell and Theo Riddick, but it is too early to tell what kind of fantasy impact Abdullah could have in his rookie season.

Cam Newton Has Tallest WR Targets Thanks To Panthers Drafting Funchess
The Carolina Panthers drafted Michigan wide receiver Devin Funchess with the No. 41 overall pick in the second round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Spin:
Similar to Green-Beckham, Funchess is another big wide receiver, standing at 6'4". Pairing him with the second-year, 6'5" Kelvin Benjamin, quarterback Cam Newton has some big targets to throw to. The problem with the Panthers offense, though, was Newton was under duress a lot. It probably would have been better if Carolina went with an offensive lineman or a small, quick receiver that Netwon could hit quickly in the flat.

Titans Take Flyer On Monster DGB
The Tennessee Titans selected Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham with the No. 40 overall pick in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Spin:
The Titans are obviously trying to surround their new quarterback, Marcus Mariota, with weapons. Green-Beckham, however, comes with a lot of risk. He was charged with marijuana possession in 2012, arrested for marijuana charges in January of 2014, and then was dismissed from the football team at Missouri because of a domestic violence investigation. This pick doesn't make much sense considering other wide receivers like Jaelen Strong were still available. Fantasy owners should stay clear of Green-Beckham for now.
11:37 PM

Speedster Devin Smith Drafted By Jets
The New York Jets selected Ohio State wide receiver Devin Smith with the No. 37 overall pick in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Spin:
The Jets had the worse passing offense in the NFL last season, so they addressed that problem by trading for Brandon Marshall and then drafting Smith. This is a nice pick for the Jets because even if he doesn't play much at wide receiver in 2015, he has value on special teams, but last time I checked, Geno Smith is still the Jets quarterback. That should scare any fantasy owner away from this kid.

Jags Add More Offensive Weapons, Draft T.J. Yeldon
The Jacksonville Jaguars selected Alabama running back T.J. Yeldon with the No. 36 overall pick in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Spin:
Yeldon might be an early steal in the second round. He is a proven winner, playing for National Championship at Alabama, and he fills an obvious need in Jacksonville. With Toby Gerhart, Denard Robinson, Storm Johnson and Bernard Pierce the four running backs currently on the Jacksonville roster, Yeldon needs to be on fantasy radars in all leagues. Yeldon could be the Jaguars starter from Day 1.

Colts Add Another Weapon For Andrew Luck, Draft Phillip Dorsett
The Indianapolis Colts selected Miami wide receiver Phillip Dorsett with the No. 29 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Spin:
Perhaps the shocker of an otherwise pretty boring first round, the Colts went wide receiver despite the best safety of the draft still on the board and other obvious needs on defense. Dorsett will obviously benefit from playing with Andrew Luck and for that reason, he could be an immediate impact in fantasy football, but how is he going to get on the field? The Colts already had T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief, Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener as Luck's top pass catchers, and then they added Andre Johnson in free agency. Owners have to assume all five of those guys will see more targets than Dorsett in 2015.

Ravens Replace Torrey Smith With Selection of Breshad Perriman
The Baltimore Ravens selected UCF wide receiver Breshad Perriman with the No. 26 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Spin:
Perriman is an extremely talented receiver, but he has had trouble catching the ball in the past. He dropped 14 passes the last two years at UCF. If he can figure out the catching problem, Perriman has the other skills to be a solid NFL wide receiver.
