ESPN's 2015 Live Mock Draft Results: Mel Kiper and Todd McShay Do It Live!

New, comments

The two draft gurus for ESPN brought their show to the silver screen. How'd it turn out?

So ESPN really enjoys pushing their mock drafts and they have two in-house figureheads to push their product. Everyone eats it up and it starts a cycle of discussion. It's what works and oh my gosh can you believe what just happened?!

They left Clemson pass rusher Vic Beasley out of the first round entirely. He's not there. He's the top rusher in the entire draft and they didn't even include him. Is this oversight and they accidentally forgot? That's a danger of doing it live. Or do they know something that no one else does, and Beasley could have a fall similar to another Clemson Tiger  pass rusher Da'quan Bowers.

It's hard to complain about taking a player like Utah's Eric Rowe. He's a quality prospect who, with time, could develop into a top player. He could also move back to safety and allow Devin McCourty to slide up to be a #1 cornerback again. Or maybe the fact that Rowe, McCourty, Logan Ryan, and Kyle Arringon can all flex in between cornerback and safety would introduce some bizarre flex-quarters coverage. I'd pay to see that.

But if Beasley is on the board, and there are no injury concerns, the Patriots had better run their ticket up to the podium. He's another Von Miller. He's a game changing defender.

Edit: It looks like they released their second and third rounds on the website. They have the Patriots selecting wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham in the second, and defensive lineman Xavier Cooper and linebacker Shaq Thompson in the third. Overall, this would be a silly good draft.
