Jets Select Leonard Williams (1.06)

Jets Select Leonard Williams (1.06)

The New York Jets took one of the best talents in the draft in DE Leonard Williams.  Williams was a top 5 prospect and should be considered a steal for the Jets with the sixth pick.

Williams will be looked to as a dominating force in new head coach’s Todd Bowles regime.  The Jets have had a great run defense in recent years, but they couldn’t pass on a dominating player like Williams.


Chicago Selects Kevin White (1.07)

3 KEVIN WHITE

The Chicago Bears selected West Virginia wide receiver Kevin White with the seventh selection in the 2015 NFL Draft.

White will step in and produce immediately with the departure of Brandon Marshall. White is one of the top players in the draft and can do damage at all levels of the field.


Washington Selects Brandon Scherff (1.05)

Brandon Scherff

The Washington Redskins selected Iowa offensive lineman Brandon Scherff with the fifth overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Scherff is the top run blocker in the draft and is likely to kick inside to play guard. He should be a day one starter and help running back Alfred Morris put up another year of solid production.


Jacksonville Selects Dante Fowler (1.03)

The Jacksonville Jaguars selected Dante Fowler with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Fowler will help bolster the pass rush for the Jaguars that play Andrew Luck and, now, Marcus Mariota twice a year.


Tampa Bay Selects Jameis Winston (1.01)

ACC Championship - Duke v Florida State

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected Jameis Winston, QB, Florida St. with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

This is not a shocker to anyone as Winston has been the consensus top pick for the last few months.

He joins a Buccaneers team with weapons alread on deck in Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson,  both of which will provide reliable vertical threats for the Florida State signal-caller.

2015 NFL Draft: The Target Board Experiment

Written by Justin Higdon on April 30, 2015

Kevin White catch

Almost every NFL Draft analyst has a Big Board, positional rankings or both. I’ve posted both already. My position by position rankings are at DraftBrowns, and my tiered draft board has been housed here at draftbreakdown since early Monday. These boards are great for us all to look back on, to see which prospects we got right, which ones we screwed up, and how we can improve the process of predicting successful transitions from college to the pro level. But as I alluded to in my “Undraftables” post recently, these boards and rankings give us a lot of wiggle room.

2015 NFL Draft: Jon Dove’s Final Mock Draft

Written by Jon Dove on April 29, 2015

The waiting is over and it’s time for everyone to submit their final mock draft. I’ve done too many to count so I’m very anxious for Thursday night so we can finally see the actual results. This mock draft goes against some of the traditional “rules” in that I included a few trades.

1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Jameis Winston, QB, Florida State

This is a pretty easy choice for the Buccaneers as it immediately solves their quarterback situation. Winston comes with his share of question marks but he’s NFL ready and possesses tremendous upside.

2. *Trade* New York Jets (via Tenn) – Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon

The Jets need to settle the long-term future of the quarterback positions. I still believe in Geno Smith but he’ll need a fresh start elsewhere to succeed. Trade details- Tennessee gets #6, #37 and 2016 2nd Round pick. Cleveland gets #2.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars- (read more…)
