The 2015 NFL Mock Draft season is in full swing, with some analysts going so far as to post seven rounds of picks!  I bow to them, as it’s an endeavor that gives me the shakes.  That said, and since I am the defending Huddle Report Mock Draft Champion, it’s time that I publish my first complete, first-round mock.  Without further delay…

2015 NFL Mock Draft, Round 1

tampa1.  Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The pick:  Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon

The Reason:  It’s no secret that Tampa needs a quarterback, as neither Josh McCown or Mike Glennon is the answer.  In addition, they need a “face of the franchise.”  And when you’re picking first overall, the selection’s value is maximized when you can bring in a quarterback with the potential to be a franchise player.  Mariota doesn’t have the “golden arm,” but he does have just about everything else.  He’s a very good athlete whose highly intelligent and squeaky clean (character-wise.)  Sure, he played in a spread offense and sure, sometimes his arm strength leaves a bit to be desired.  But his overall body of work suggests he will be at least a competent and capable starting NFL quarterback.  And, as many teams have learned the hard way, those players are hard to come by.

Next:  Tennessee Titans

    No way the Steelers take an OT with those 3 edge rushers (OLB’s) still on the board.
