NFL Draft 2015: Best players available on final day

New, comments

The wait is on for some players with injury issues.

NFL Draft live coverage

Injuries are quickly becoming the storyline of the 2015 NFL Draft. We've seen teams reach on players in the first few rounds of the draft, while some very talented players wound up falling.

Jay Ajayi of Boise State was the biggest name still on the board after four rounds. Ajayi is one of the most-talented running backs in this year's draft but his injury concerns had teams avoiding him until the Miami Dolphins finally pulled the trigger at No. 149 overall. He can be a major contributor if healthy.

Going into the fifth round, there were a lot of quality defensive tackles available. Most notably, Ohio State's Michael Bennett was just sitting out there for a 4-3 team to scoop up. He has arguably the best first step of any interior defensive lineman in the daft this year and will be a good three technique.

We're going to update this as the final day of the draft progresses, removing players who finally get scooped up. As you can see below, there's plenty of players worth nabbing. Here are the best players remaining in the 2015 NFL Draft:
