Happy 2015 NFL Draft Day! 2015 1st Round Mock Draft Final Version
At last it is finally here! 2015 NFL Draft Day is officially here and for the diehard fans of the sport of football, it is a welcomed sight to have football related programming that matters on television once again.
The 2015 NFL offseason has been in full swing since the Patriots won Super Bowl 49 in February and now the Patriots and the other 31 NFL teams take another step towards winning that prestigious Super Bowl 50 trophy.
Thursday’s 2015 NFL Draft will be held in Chicago, a break from the usual Radio Music City Hall in New York City. The new location, I feel, will bring a rejuvenating feeling to the draft and will give the diehard NFL fans in Chicago a feeling of pride being able to host the 2015 NFL Draft.
There have been numerous rumors and speculations for the past several months and finally they can all be put to rest and the real draft results will finally be revealed. I have always compared the time in between the Super Bowl and draft night like a semester in college and draft night is like the final exam for the NFL offseason.
True, there will be many more offseason moves to come and rosters will continue to change all throughout the offseason, but the biggest roster changes always takes place on draft night. So, to follow that theme let’s do one last 2015 NFL Mock Draft and let’s think of it as a final exam for the 2015 NFL Pre-Draft coverage.
