NFL Draft Big Board 2015: Matt Miller's Final Rankings

0 of 17

    Mark J. Terrill/Associated Press

    The 2015 NFL draft class will be remembered, and judged, on the careers of Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota. Already, folks want to compare this class to the Peyton Manning vs. Ryan Leaf group—or Andrew Luck vs. Robert Griffin III—but the 2015 draft is about more than just the quarterbacks. 

    This is the year of the edge-rusher, and with six players at the position holding a first-round grade, that label is warranted. But how about the wide receivers? Five prospects there could see the first round. The same goes for the cornerback class, where five more players have a first-round grade. And we can't forget the running backs. Todd Gurley and Melvin Gordon are set to break the trend of waiting to select a ball-carrier until Day 2. 

    All in all, the 2015 draft class is a good one. It's not great—not like 2014—but when comparing it to 2013, 2012 and 2011, the talent level is solid. If the two superstar prospects at quarterback play more like Eli Manning and Philip Rivers and less like Leaf, this group could be remembered for quite some time.
