2015 NFL Draft Big (Small) Board 1.0

Well, it’s November and the Washington Redskins are 3-6. Not to say the season is over — if you read our Friday column you’d know I believe the season is far from over at this point. However, it’s always good to get an early jump on studying an upcoming draft.

From taking an early look at potential prospects in the 2015 NFL Draft, it’s pretty apparent that this draft is not very top heavy as it pertains to elite talent. The strength of this upcoming draft, at least for the first round, appears to be pass rushers. If you have a 3-4 defense, like the Washington Redskins, this is a good draft for your front 7.

Top 25 Notes:

  • There are six pass rushers in the top ten of our board (including Mr. Do it All in Shaq Thompson)
  • 11 of the top 15 are underclassmen
  • There are no offensive linemen in the top ten
  • There are no cornerbacks in the top 15


***These rankings are based on early personal film study and conversations we’ve had with pro scouts. This is not the order of which I believe players will be selected. These are purely talent-based rankings that are subject to change.
