Quarterbacks Marcus Mariota and Jameis Winston may be the headliners but a strong class of defensive linemen could prove the real story of the 2015 NFL draft. With the NFL and NCAA seasons under way, Senior Analyst Rob Rang projects what may happen in the first round.
Sure, there is a whole season of NFL and college football action left to determine what will happen in the 2015 draft, but given a projected selection order (including a Super Bowl XLVIII rematch), here is how NFLDraftScout.com Senior Analyst Rob Rang envisions the first 32 picks going.
Overshadowed by the "other" games last Saturday was a strong all-around performance from Smallwood, a junior and two-time all-conference pick who has already announced his intentions to enter the 2014 draft.
If Saturday's upset win at Wisconsin was the junior's final game for the Nittany Lions, Robinson went out in style, showing the versatile skill-set that could result in a high selection in the 2014 NFL draft.
Plenty of others have been recognized for LSU's domination of Johnny Manziel and the Aggies November 23 but no one was more impressive than the junior left tackle, whose powerful run blocking and adept pass protection anchored the Tigers' 34-10 win.
