The NFL Draft is seven rounds and you would think teams are scraping the bottom of the barrel in the last rounds, but that is not the case. Quality players like Kurt Warner, Tony Romo, Antonio Gates and Arian Foster all went undrafted out of college.
NFL teams do their due diligence during the pre-draft process. They dig deep into a prospect’s personal life and can sometime do a little too much work. Many players fall through the cracks due to off-the-field issues or a perceived idea that a certain player doesn’t fit a team’s current scheme.
I’ll leave all the draft grades and winners & losers posts for the so-called ‘experts’ that can tell the future. Here is a list of the best college players who didn’t get drafted during the 2015 NFL Draft.
Scouts and team executives from around the NFL are in Indianapolis this weekend for the start of the NFL Draft Combine. Prospects will get run through the car wash with interviews, weigh-ins and various drills.
The Colts are going into this draft with a huge question mark at running back. Two seasons ago, they traded a first round pick to Cleveland for Trent Richardson, but that hasn’t worked out…at all. They are now wrapped up in nasty situation in which Indy could try to void his contract.
This draft’s running back class is top heavy. Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon and Georgia’s Todd Gurley are on top of the list. Will Indy draft a running back in the first round?
The 2015 NFL Draft Combine takes place at the end of next week. The yearly event in Indianapolis has turned into must-see television. The NFL Network does a fantastic job covering the combine.

All the top prospects for the 2015 NFL Draft will be there (with a few choosing to only workout at their college’s pro day) and many will see a change in their draft stock. A player can drastically change their round projection with an outstanding performance.
Here are ten players to keep an eye on during the 2015 NFL Draft Combine.
NFL Draft rumors are swirling more than a Panhandle Twister. Teams are trying to gain any leverage they can by putting out false rumors. It’s difficult to trust anything you hear from now until the 2014 NFL Draft on May 8th.
The latest rumor getting traction is the Dallas Cowboys would do ‘anything’ to trade up to draft Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel.
It would be the quintessential ‘Jerry Jones’ move. Johnny Football is everything Jones wants in a quarterback. He’s talented, fun to watch and very marketable. Jones would love to have Manziel play for the Cowboys.
