2015 NFL Draft: Top 50 Big Board

Misone's top 50 college players for the 2015 NFL draft shows that in a draft class not quite as loaded as last years, this year's draft is loaded with tackles, linebackers and interior D-linemen.

What better way to kickoff the new year then to shed some light on the upcoming draft's top prospects.

Well, I guess starting off the new year would be ten times as awesome if everyone could say their team is in the playoffs, but considering the circumstances, draft season is officially upon us. This year's draft class is not quite as deep as last years at any position in comparison, but the talent at tackle, linebacker, and the interior defensive line, is undeniable.

As far the gap between the top-rated player and the fifth-rated player, the gap is not very wide at all. All five of these players have the potential to be the most impact-ful players from this draft class five years down the road. These are very special players, that could end up going to seven or eight Pro Bowls apiece in their careers. All are the most pro-ready for their positions, and could should be able to come into the league and pick up where they left off...
