In cases CPU pins are severely bent I've found a scalpel very effective, thin but strong making gently lifting the pin up easy. After straightening the pins I tend to also slot a credit card between the pins (horizontal and vertical) to make sure they are as even as possible.

For the minor extra effort - go to an RC Airplane type hobbyshop and buy some thin ID brass tubing that fits snugly on the Pin OD. Using this will minimize strange mechanicals, and give you a better chance with fixing 15 pins.

Ideally you'd make a little fixture which was a second offset washer-like very short tube soldered to a thin longer rod - that would be inserted first and held fixed to avoid or to limit bending the base of the pin, and the straight tube would bend the major length of the pin, back into an acceptable angle.

The thing to take care with, is to avoid bending the base of the pin since it can pop out of the BGA substrate. And do any bending slowly. Using an empty pen barrel btw is not teribly effective, as it will not let you properly apply torque limited to the point of the bend - it will often make another distinct bend point and possibly mess it up further.

btw 15 pins makes this an mostly improbable fix, unless you are very careful, PLUS wear an esd ground strap and use a static dissipative work surface set-up.
