2015 NFL Draft: Sakamoto’s Big Board


After watching the NFL combine, I came away impressed with numerous players. From WR Kevin White’s sub 4.35 40-yard dash to UCONN’s Byron Jones’ impressive world-record 147-inch broad-jump, there were many things to take away from this year’s combine.

And with the combine officially in the books as it concluded this morning, I have developed my first 2015 Big Board. After pro-days things will change but as of right now this is who I have as the Top 32 prospects.
