While teams selecting in the top 10 are in position to nab potential building blocks, perennial playoff contenders like Baltimore, Dallas, Seattle and New England could use the draft to find cheap alternatives to expensive veterans. No club appears to be in better position to fill a key area of need than the Packers.
While the Bucs and Titans hope that Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota prove the answers to their prayers for a franchise quarterback, most of the other clubs in the top 10 focus on the pass rushers and pass-catchers -- though not necessarily in the order you might expect.
The Dallas Cowboys, Detroit Lions and Denver Broncos have big decisions in free agency with stars DeMarco Murray, Ndamukong Suh and Julius Thomas. The clubs could look to the 2015 draft for cheaper, young talent.
Jameis Winston may come up with plenty of off-field concerns but in a division boasting the likes of Drew Brees, Matt Ryan and Cam Newton, Tampa Bay doesn't have much choice but to gamble on the best quarterback in the draft.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers possess the No. 1 overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft. For now, Oregon's Marcus Mariota appears to be the favorite to be their choice. If Jameis Winston performs well on and off the field over the coming months, however, it could be the former and not the latter Heisman Trophy winner who ultimately hears his name called first on draft day.
Out of the final pre-draft Big Board, 78 prospects were ultimately selected within the top 100 picks, with the Chicago Bears, Houston Texans and San Francisco 49ers leading the way with five selections apiece.
