It’s almost time.

The 2015 NFL Draft begins in only a few short hours, and many fans will be plastered to their TVs to see what their teams will do. The draft is one of my favorite parts of the year, as each draft can provide a fresh wave of talent to each roster.

For this mock, I decided to leave out trades for simplicity, but I don’t believe this will be the case tonight. Not even close. I fully expect either both the Browns and the Eagles to make a strong push for the No. 2 pick, but recent reports have the Titans taking the Oregon star themselves.

However, I expect someone to move up into the 3-5 range for either Leonard Williams or Dante Fowler (watch for JAX/ATL trade), someone to trade up into the low top 10/early teens, a trade between picks 10-20, and one team to trade back up into the first. 4 total trades.

If you have any draft questions or disagreements with my mock, feel free to tweet at me! @pparkinson13

So without further ado, here we go.

QB. Florida State. Jameis Winston. 1. player. 48. No surprise here. The Bucs take their franchise quarterback and look to the future.

Reports are coming in that Tennessee is set on taking the second QB in the draft. In this mock, the Titans come to their senses and take a shot on the other top passer in the draft.. QB. Oregon. Marcus Mariota. 2. player. 35

player. 52. With two QBs being selected ahead of them, the Jaguars are more than happy to let the best player in the draft fall into their laps.. DE/DT. USC. Leonard Williams. 3

Amari Cooper. 4. player. 28. <strong><a href=. WR. Alabama

Vic Beasley. 6. player. 30. With <strong><a href=. DE/OLB. Clemson

57. I’m not buying the whole receiver-to-Chicago thing. The Bears have so many holes on defense, that they can’t afford to waste this pick when there’s such a deep WR class. Instead, they take the best corner in the draft.. CB. Michigan St.. Trae Waynes. 7. player

DE/OLB. Kentucky. Alvin 'Bud' Dupree. 8. player. 44. With this pick, Atlanta shores up it’s pass rush, and adds a raw guy like Dupree. The upside is massive, and so the Falcons pulls the trigger.
