The NFL Draft: reviewing the past decade’s pick at number seven

The Chicago Bears hold the seventh overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. In the past 10 years the seventh overall selection hasn’t always panned out well, but has produced four Pro Bowlers, and an All-Pro running back. Ironically three teams have held the seventh pick twice in the past 10 years. We review the players nine selections at the number seven pick. 2014: Mike Evans (WR...

Barlotta’s Draft Corner: 2015 NFL Mock Draft v.3

1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Jameis Winston, QB, FSU – Jameis Winston is the safest pick for the Tampa Bay Bucs. They need a quarterback who is ready to run the pro-system; Jameis fits the bill. Winston to Mike Evans could become a great thing for the Tampa organization. 2. Tennessee Titans- Leonard Williams, DL, USC – As I have said before Leonard Williams is the best player in...

Barlotta’s Draft Corner: 2015 NFL Mock Draft v.2

1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jameis Winston QB, FSU – Jameis Winston is the only pick in my opinion. He is the safest pick for a Tampa team who isn’t far off from being a playoff team. You have the ability to team him up with Mike Evans and have an elite one-two punch. 2. Tennessee Titans: Leonard Williams DT, USC – Leonard Williams is the best player in the draft. At 6-foot-5...

Is the 2014 WR draft class the best ever?
