2015 NFL Draft — Offensive Line Rankings

Now that the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine has wrapped up, I finally have the capacity to produce my final scouting reports for 2015 prospects. The first scouting reports will be compiled for my big board (top 32) prospects, to be released Wednesday morning.

Meanwhile, I have completed my initial rankings for each of the three offensive line positions. Remember, ranking does not always indicate where a player is projected to be drafted. Also, these rankings are not final and will be fluid to some degree up until draft day.

2015 NFL Draft — QB, RB, WR, TE Rankings

My favorite time of the year is upon us. The 2014-15 football has come and gone, and the die-hard draftniks have begun preparations for the 2015 NFL Combine. The postseason all-star games such as the Senior Bowl, East-West Shrine Game, and NFL PA Bowl have all concluded as well. These games gave scouts their first look at the top prospects practicing and playing along side one another. This is also the time where prospects have their game film cut-up and analyzed under a microscope. Thus, I have finally compiled my initial rankings for the quarterback, running back, wide receiver, and tight end positions. The past two weeks was devoted almost entirely to skill positions on the offensive and defensive side of the ball. Edge rushers and cornerbacks will be up by tomorrow.

It is important to note that these prospects are not always organized according to where they are projected to be drafted. My projected round estimation is merely a ceiling/floor based upon how high I believe a team could take him and how far he could fall. Often, I have prospects rated much higher than others who are projected to be picked before them. For instance, I would take Connor Halliday as a developmental backup (any day of the week!) before I would take Blake Sims.

Here are my initial rankings of QB, RB, WR and TE. These rankings will remain static until after the combine.
