10 Best NFL Prospects In The 2015 Draft

Craig Ruttle/AP

We’ve entered the NFL Draft month, with the hottest college football prospects showcasing their talents on pro-days, shamelessly self-advertising, and courting as much media attention as they possibly can, in a bid to boost their chances of being a top pick, and landing a lucrative contract.

Last year saw Jadaveon Clowney take the mantle of Number 1 overall pick, with the Texans hoping he would combine with superhuman J.J. Watt to form an earth-shattering pass rushing duo.

A season of injuries and set-backs stopped Clowney from fulfilling his massive potential during his rookie season, though he was comfortably considered as the best player in a 2014 Draft class that also contained, WR Sammy Watkins, DE Khalil Mack, and of course, QB Johnny Manziel.

But what does this year’s draft have in store for the 32 NFL teams across the country? It boasts a great raft of defensive additions, a selection of potentially top class wide receivers, and two standout quarterbacks, but where will they all land?

This list doesn’t rank the order of when each player will be chosen, instead, it will rate the quality of the top prospects in the draft this year; the 10 players who will set the league on fire.
