2015 NFL Draft Best Available: Day Two

The first round of the 2015 NFL Draft didn’t have quite as much drama as we had hoped, with only two trades and the Titans staying put at No. 2 overall for Marcus Mariota (QB, Oregon).  The first half of the first round went as many had expected with a few minor exceptions, but things started to shift a bit after the Chargers traded up to the No. 15 pick for Melvin Gordon (RB, Wisconsin).

Players like Nelson Agholor (WR, USC), Cedric Ogbuehi (OT, TAMU), Shaq Thompson (LB, Wash) and Stephone Anthony (LB, Clemson) were all picked between picks 20-32 resulting in a lot of talented players with first-round grades to slip into Day 2.
