We love getting guest contributions on the front page here at Vikings Territory and today is no exception. Richard Comben (Aussie61 to those of you who know who is who in the comments section around here) is the latest reader to submit a mock draft for all of us to enjoy.
Richard said something when he emailed this to me that I thought was particularly of interest. “One thing that I have learned is that these mock drafts are more difficult than can be imagined when you start putting things on paper!” he wrote to me.
I thought that was a really good point to bring up, because mock drafts are one of the easiest things on the internet to criticize or dismiss, but the truth is that they aren’t easy to produce. Those guys that do this on a weekly basis (or daily basis, as is the case with some writers) deserve credit for what they do.
Anyways, leave Richard some love in the comments section, he did a nice job.
2015 NFL MOCK DRAFT – Submitted by Richard Comben
1. Tampa Bay // Dante Fowler, EDGE – Florida
Jameis Winston is the popular pick, but he’s not mine. I worry about his interception rate and off-field issues. Lovie Smith won’t miss the chance to boost his ailing defense, and Fowler can help right away.
2. Tennesee // Leonard Williams, DL – USC
The Titans are struggling on both sides of the ball, but offensive help is available later in the draft. Williams will add a piece that the Titans can build around up front.
3. Jacksonville // Brandon Scherff, OL – Iowa
The Jags had the worst ranked offence last year. After investing a first round pick in Blake Bortles they need to give him a chance to make plays. Some talent was added during free agency and fixing the OL has to be high on the agenda.
