    Nick's 2015 Top 5 Positional Rankings

    Here's a very early look at my Top 5 at each positional unit, heading into the 2015 college football season.


    QB
    Marcus Mariota (Oregon)
    Jameis Winston (FSU)
    Brett Hundley (UCLA)
    Bryce Petty (Baylor)
    Kevin Hogan (Stanford)

    Notes: Going into 2015, I think there's a clear Top 3 for me, and that's Mariota, Winston, and Hundley. I give the edge to Mariota at this point, as I think Winston still needs polish and obviously has some off the field questions to answer.


    RB
    Todd Gurley (Georgia)
    Melvin Gordon (Wisconsin)
    Karlos Williams (FSU)
    Mike Davis (South Carolina)
    T.J. Yeldon (Alabama)

    Notes: The low ranking of T.J. Yeldon might surprise people, but I'm not as impressed with him as others are. I'm not even convinced he's the best running back on his team. Gurley, IMO, is at the top of a now undervalued positional group.


    WR
    Amari Cooper (Alabama)
    Stefon Diggs (Maryland)
    Nelson Agholor (USC)
    Ty Montgomery (Stanford)
    Rashad Greene (Florida State)

    Notes: DBG is left off pending what happens with him this season. The talent is there, but he's proved to be a headcase. Cooper clearly leads this pack, IMO. I'm interested to see how Agholor develops without Marqise Lee at USC.


    OL
    Cedric Ogbuehi (Texas A&M)
    Andrus Peat (Stanford)
    Cameron Erving (Florida State)
    La’el Collins (LSU)
    Brandon Scherff (Iowa)

    Notes: Ogbuehi and Erving were contenders to come out in 2014 as a potential first round tackles, but wisely stayed in school for another year. Considering both Luke Joeckel and Jake Matthews ended up being Top 6 picks, Ogbuehi should contend for a high spot.


    DL
    Leonard Williams (USC)
    Randy Gregory (Nebraska)
    Shilique Calhoun (Michigan State)
    Dante Fowler Jr. (Florida)
    Mario Edwards Jr. (Florida State)

    Notes: This is a very impressive group of top pass rushers, if the Rams think they need someone to groom as Chris Long's heir. Williams has size, power, and a relentless motor. Gregory could be intriguing for teams looking for a hybrid rusher.


    LB
    Vic Beasley (Clemson)
    Devonte Fields (TCU)
    Benardrick McKinney (Mississippi State)
    Jordan Jenkins (Georgia)
    Eric Striker (Oklahoma)

    Notes: Some 3-4 pass rushers are mixed in here, with Beasley leading the pack. McKinney is huge (6'5' 235 lbs) and can get into the backfield. How can you not love a linebacker named Striker?


    DB
    Ifo Ekpre-Olomu (Oregon)
    P.J. Williams (Florida State)
    Landon Collins (Alabama)
    Jalen Collins (LSU)
    Trae Waynes (Michigan State)

    Notes: Ekpre-Olomu was projected as a first round corner before returning to school. He enters 2014 leading the group, but don't sleep on P.J. Williams. Landon Collins is the top safety in this class, IMO.

    I would love a guy like Leonard Williams to replace Long, but I just can't see us taking ANOTHER defensive lineman in the first round. At some point, we need to use those picks for other positions.

    The top LB prospects you mentioned for the most part all have great size especially Fields and McKinney. Having a thumper like them playing alongside Laurinaitis and Ogletree and behind Donald and Brockers would be awesome.

    A guy like DGB or Amari Cooper would finally give Bradford the #1 target he's been lacking since he's arrived in the NFL.

    I would love Todd Gurley also as I think he's the faster, perfect version of Brandon Jacobs but I guess he doesn't make much sense with Stacy and Mason in our backfield already.

    DGB formerly from Mizzou? Yeah...we might have to wait on him to see if he ends up in jail.
