As the big moment approaches, another series of mock projections are in order for 2015 NFL free agency.  The following is a breakdown of every position group from offense to defense and where the top five players who will be available should land.

Probable Franchise Tag Targets

  • Dez Bryant
  • Demaryius Thomas
  • Jason Pierre-Paul
  • Devin McCourty
  • Justin Houston

Before anything else, it’s important to indicate which players are unlikely to reach the open market due to the franchise tag.  Those names are listed above.


Injuries have really masked how much progress Jake Locker was making before things changed again in Tennessee.  He needs a fresh start.  The Philadelphia Eagles have no guarantees of getting Marcus Mariota, so adding Locker with his big arm and mobility would make a good fit for their system.. QB. Tennessee. Jake Locker. 1. player. 54

Cleveland. Brian Hoyer. 2. player. 16. Their misfire on Josh McCown will force the Buffalo Bills to be more aggressive with their next attempt.  Brian Hoyer may be their best shot.  He’s experienced, reasonably talented and a good leader in the huddle.  Rex Ryan’s defense and Greg Roman’s crafty rushing attacks should be able to mask his deficiencies.. QB

Sam Bradford could be back again in 2015, but the St. Louis Rams need more insurance behind him.  Mark Sanchez would make not only a great backup in case of another setback but good competition as well.  His familiarity of playing in a run-first offense will also be a big plus.. QB. Philadelphia. Mark Sanchez. 3. player. 51

Ryan Mallett. 4. player. 10. On several occasions Ryan Mallett has made it clear he’d love the chance to return for another shot at the Houston Texans starting job.  He shouldn’t be all that expensive for the team to re-sign anyway and they will want him as part of the competition they are sure to hold for the job next season given they traded to get him in the first place.. QB. Houston

5. player. 53. This is not a prediction.  Josh McCown signed a three-year deal to join the Cleveland Browns so this quarterback is officially off the market.. QB. Tampa Bay. Josh McCown
