The 2015 NFL Draft class offers an array of pass rushing talent. Top pass rushers, particularly edge rushers, are gaining value in the early rounds of recent drafts and that trend will continue to grow this year as well. While there is no Jadeveon Clowney in this group, a deep well of talent at the position awaits NFL teams none-the-less.
The Vikings biggest need is certainly not in the pass rush department, yet with the talent and depth offered in this class, it might be hard to pass on a dynamic edge rusher right off the bat. However, if the Vikings fill other needs in the early rounds of the draft, one edge rusher to keep an eye on in day three is Shaquille Riddick from West Virginia. He’s an edge rusher that hasn’t gotten the attention that the others at the top of the class have garnered, but his measurables and athleticism are equally as impressive.
