The 2015 NFL Draft starts this Thursday. Now is the time to release my second-to-last, first-round mock draft, which includes trade predictions.

1

Jameis Winston

Quarterback, Florida State

Off the field concerns are the only thing concerning about him. Besides that, Jameis Winston is as close to a home run as your going to find in this year’s NFL draft.
2

Marcus Mariota

Quarterback, Oregon

The Chargers acquire the selection in a trade with the Tennessee Titans. With this pick, Philip Rivers gets closer to home when he decides to retire and the Chargers get their quarterback of the future in Marcus Mariota.
3

Vic Beasley

Outside Linebacker, Clemson

They need help getting after the quarterback, and considering the scheme they play which incorporates the hybrid defensive end-linebacker, no one does it better than Vic Beasley.
4

Leonard Williams

Defensive Tackle, Southern California

My number one (along with most other scouts) player in this year’s draft lasts until pick four. Leonard Williams and Khalil Mack are a young and talented pair to spearhead the rebuild in Oakland.
5

Dante Fowler, Jr.

Defensive End/Outside Linebacker, Florida

When you have as many needs as Washington, you start over by going either quarterback or defensive end. With no value left on the board at quarterback, Dante Fowler, Jr. is the pick.
6

Randy Gregory

Defensive End/Outside Linebacker, Nebraska

If not for the failed drug test, Randy Gregory is not here this long. Luckily for the Jets he is, top five talent at six is a little bargain.
7

Amari Cooper

Wide Receiver, Alabama

The trade of Brandon Marshall leaves a big hole at the number two wide receiver position and the most polished, NFL-ready receiver is Amari Cooper.
8

Shane Ray

Defensive End, Missouri

The toe injury might change this selection as the draft approaches, but maybe not. Relentless when attacking the quarterback and a bit of a mean streak is something Atlanta has needed for a while.  Shane Ray solves that need.
