The 2015 NFL Draft is now exactly one week away, and will be held at the Roosevelt University Auditorium in Chicago, Illinois — the first time the Draft has been held outside of New York City in over 40 years.
The Draft will be headlined by: quarterbacks Jameis Winston of Florida State, Marcus Mariota of Oregon; wide receivers Amari Cooper of Alabama and Kevin White of West Virginia; runningbacks Todd Gurley of Georgia and Melvin Gordon of Wisconsin; and a bevy of defensive linemen, which include Dante Fowler Jr. of Florida, Leonard Williams of USC, Shane Ray of Missouri, Vic Beasley of Clemson and Randy Gregory of Nebraska.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers finished 2014 at 2-14 and own the first-overall selection in the Draft. The Tennessee Titans also finished 2014 at 2-14 and will select second. Here is the rest of the order for Rounds 1 and 2:
|Overall Pick #||Team:|
|6||New York Jets|
|9||New York Giants|
|19||Cleveland||*Acquired from Buffalo*|
|31||New Orleans||*Acquired from Seattle*|
|37||New York Jets|
|40||New York Giants|
– The Cleveland Browns acquired the Buffalo Bills 2015 first-round pick in the Sammy Watkins trade.
– The New Orleans Saints acquired the Seattle Seahawks 2015 first-round pick in the Jimmy Graham trade.
Each round will be televised on both ESPN and the NFL Network from Thursday, April 30th until Saturday, May 2nd.
