2015 NFL Draft: Dillon Smith’s Midseason Top 25 Big Board


We are only at the midseason point for both College Football and the NFL, but the playoff picture and the Draft order are starting to take shape. Whether your team is tanking, like Oakland Raiders or Jacksonville Jaguars, or on their way to a playoff berth, like the Dallas Cowboys or the Denver Broncos, the draft is always a much anticipated time for any fan of the league.

Big name players like Marcus Mariota and Vic Beasley are guys who, as of today, are looking at going very high in this upcoming draft. Though it’s not on par with the 2014 draft, this crop of prospects is quite an impressive one and is deep at positions like EDGE and wide receiver.

There is no sure fire prospect this year like Andrew Luck, but there are several guys who are close.

As the season progresses, this and every other list will change with players moving up and down, but for now, take a quick look at my current prospect rankings.
