The NFL draft 2015 starts on Thursday with the first round and the full list of picks and selections for the seven round draft can be found at NFL.com and the first picks open with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tennessee Titans, Jacksonville Jaguars, Oakland Raiders, Washington Redskins and NY Jets in the first six selections.
The draft this year will be in Chicago and the event will be televised in primetime from ESPN. The first round has live coverage on Thursday night and things will continue on Friday and through the weekend. The Buccaneers have the first overall pick and many draft experts expect them to take Jameis Winston at that spot from Florida State. The second overall pick is going to be interesting, as the Titans have been taking calls about trades and they could move it for a team who wants to pick Marcus Mariota.
The draft starts up on ESPN at 8 pm ET and will also be streaming on ESPN.com through the Watch ESPN website. The second day has the second and third rounds and those will be on ESPN as well starting up past 7 pm ET. The final day is on Saturday with Round 4-7 and that will begin at 12 pm ET noon.
The draft order for the first round has the Buccaneers at number one, while the Titans and Jaguars are at two and three. The Titans could sit and take Leonard Williams, while reports have the Jags seriously considering Amari Cooper at the pick. The fourth selection is the Raiders and they could be a potential trade partner for teams.
The Redskins also likely will shop the number five pick depending on how goes in the first four selections, while the Jets are at number six. The team is hoping for Marcus Mariota to fall, but it's unlikely he makes it out of the top five. The rest of the top 10 has the Chicago Bears at number seven, the Atlanta Falcons at eight, New York Giants at number nine and the St. Louis Rams picking at number 10.
There could be more trades down out of the top 10 than usual this year, as this is considered to be a deep draft and could see some teams move back for picks. The Vikings have the number 11 pick, followed by the Cleveland Browns, New Orleans Saints, Miami Dolphins and San Francisco 49ers. The middle of the first has the Texans, Chargers, Browns again, Eagles and Bengals, while the Steelers and Lions are next. The Patriots pick at the end, while the Saints now have the Seahawks' first round pick from the Jimmy Graham trade.
