As the Commissioner of the National Football League says, "Welcome to the 2015 NFL Draft... our season begins tonight!"  To all football fans, and particularly the somewhat nerdier side of the football fans that have somehow navigated themselves to this website:  I hope you will share in enthusiasm along with me for what should be a very exciting draft process.  In this final mock draft projection, two trades have come to fruition. First, when the Jaguars are on the clock at #3, Atlanta comes calling because they covet prospect Dante Fowler so much that they are willing to give up additional/future asset to come get the guy they want.  Atlanta and Jacksonville will flip spots at #3 and #8 and Jacksonville will be happy to gain the additional draft picks they get from the trade and then stun the draft world when they come out of the blue to snatch RB sensation Todd Gurley.  You heard it here first... ( or second or third if it's been out there somewhere else, but this is another one of those "below the radar" moves that Jacksonville could pull on us just as they did with the Blake Bortles selection last year.  A new offensive coordinator was brought in (Greg Olson) with this mission in mind:  grind, smash-mouth, play-action, run the football, win the line of scrimmage and make the quarterback's life easier.  They must get a runner -- and here they get the best one to enter the draft in the past half-decade.
The second trade worked-out in this projection takes place later in the draft when the Detroit Lions move up from #23 to #18 in a swap of picks with the Kansas City Chiefs.  Two prospects the Lions like very much are OT Ereck Flowers of Miami (gone at pick #10 to St. Louis) and OT Andrus Peat of Stanford.  Worried enough that the Browns, sitting at #19, might be interested in the big tackle, Peat, the Lions decide to make a move to go get him.  The Lions get their guy, the Browns still find a reason to smile because Danny Shelton is a heck of a prospect to get at #19 (and Johnny Manziel is out of rehab), and then the Kansas City Chiefs move down to #23, take the very reliable and plug-and-play interior offensive lineman Cameron Erving.  But enough talk!  Without further wait, the 2015 1st Rd.
