Todd McShay’s Way-Too-Early 2015 NFL Mock Draft

Like clockwork, ESPN has rolled right into the 2015 NFL Draft following the conclusion of 2014’s. Toddy McShay has already put together a way-too-early look at how next year’s draft could shake out. It may be a bit premature, but the Worldwide Leader has to start popping them out now if it wants to reach the quota of 986 mock drafts over the next 12 months.

McShay uses Aaron Schatz’s projected win totals to lay out the draft order. To little surprise, he has Oakland, Cleveland and Jacksonville selecting near the top again. He also includes draft-eligible non-seniors in his mock.

If there is one thing to learn from this mock draft, it’s that Florida State is loaded (which is probably a bit of an understatement). McShay has six FSU players being selected in the top 26 picks.

Without further ado, here is 2015 NFL Mock Draft No. 1 of 986.
