With an epic Super Bowl taking place in Houston not many people (who aren’t scouts or GMs) have paid a lot of attention to the college athletes entering the NFL. I watched the East-West Shrine and Senior Bowl practices and games for you to catch up to who improved their draft stock the most. Here are the players who helped themselves the most:
It was a very eventful and surprising three days in Chicago and all teams improved their roster. So now it’s time to look at who benefited most from the draft and who had to come out of it with some form of disappointment. The lists include both teams and players and at the end I put up the biggest steals on this year’s board and which players I thought didn’t present a good enough value at the spot they were taken. None of them are ranked in any particular order.
After doing tons of film work on all the prospects, analyzing them by position and overall, here’s my one and only mock draft for the first round. Draft day is crazy and anything can happen. You can never have your whole board right because of all the trades and shiftings going on, so I decided to leave the projections for possible trades and went with the board as it is right now.

After listing my top ten prospects at each other position, finally here are my quarterbacks. With the mega-deals by the Rams and Eagles we already know who the first two will be that hear their name called on Thursday, but I think this is a very deep and talented class. Once again I’m projecting what kind of players they can become, so the guy at number one isn’t the only one, who wasn’t in the national spotlight during his collegiate career.
Adding to my top 10 cornerback prospects, here is my list of the best safeties available. The skill-sets of these guys are very different and can go from in-the-box safeties to center-fielders. I always like to see lower-level players I can put up here and there are a couple of very intriguing guys out there.
Adding to my top 10 linebackers and runningbacks in the draft I now give you my best offensive tackles and interior offensive linemen. With some of those guys I’m just projecting which kind of players they could become, even though there might be a couple of things they still have to work on.
With the 2015/16 season in the books my eyes are now fully on college prospects. After looking at the East-West Shrine practices and the game, Senior Bowl week and the NFL Scouting combine, I decided to list the young men who I thought boosted their draft stock the most during these events. A couple of pro days are already in the books, but I didn’t want to take them into account since a lot of them are still coming up. So here are my ten guys in no particular order:
