NFL Draft 2015: Best players available after 1st round

New, comments

Not surprisingly, some of the draft's biggest character risks fell out of the first round.

As expected, some of the most promising players but those with character issues fell out of the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft. Chief among them are Nebraska pass rusher Randy Gregory and LSU offensive tackle La'el Collins. Both have serious off-the-field question marks, and it should come as no surprise that both fell. The same can be said of wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham.

Keep up with Rounds 2 and 3 with SB Nation's LIVE NFL Draft tracker!

The rumor mill has been heating up throughout the day on Friday. Be sure to keep up with the latest buzz with our rumor tracker.

The players left after the first round also give some indication of where we might see some runs in the second and third rounds of the draft. Chief among them is running back after just two were picked in the first round. We'll also see a run on wide receivers, even though six were picked in the first round.
