Top 50 NFL draft prospect rankings
USC's Williams opens as top-rated prospect
I recently unveiled my first mock draft of the 2015 NFL Draft season. While the mock draft is based largely on what I'm hearing on where a prospect might be selected in the draft, this list is based solely on my own evaluations.
There is an enormous pool of players to comb through, especially when you consider the large number of underclassmen who have been declared eligible for the 2015 draft. So, there are still plenty of players to study more closely. As we go through the all-star games, NFL Scouting Combine, pro days, as well as taking the time to watch more game tape, this list will fluctuate as we lead up to the draft and will be periodically adjusted.
At this time of year when I was scouting, we were focused on getting a player into the right neighborhood, not necessarily the right house, when we went through putting our first draft board together. As we watch more tape and gather more information, it becomes easier to nail down a more precise order for the top draft prospects.
