2015 NFL Mock Draft: Pre-Combine, Full First Round

Every year, we run through our Mock Drafts to show who we think whichever team will be taking.  It’s a fun exercise for those of us that follow the draft closely, but most people only have a vague idea of where they think players should go.  Often, this is based on where the experts put players, where they see them going, and that’s fine.  Those guys are experts for a reason, they get paid to follow the draft closely and make mock draft articles to that end.

I create and maintain my own big board every season, though up until this point I hadn’t been using it for my previous mock drafts.  That all changes now.  I’m far enough along in my evaluations that I feel comfortable in my rankings, so here is my first mock draft of 2015 based on my own, personal big board!  These picks are who not necessarily who I would take, but are who I believe the teams may given their present roster and draft tendencies, as well as coaching staff.  Enjoy!

Oregon. Marcus Mariota. 1. player. 48. I’m not the <a href=. Quarterback

There are still some that feel a <a href=. Defensive Tackle. Southern California. Leonard Williams. 2. player. 35

T.J. Clemmings. 3. player. 52. Perenially drafting at the top of the draft means the Jags have had their fair share of high profile targets, with mixed success.  Their <a href=. Offensive Tackle. Pittsburgh

28. <strong><a href=. Defensive End. Nebraska. Randy Gregory. 4. player
