      Marcus Mariota, the collegiate
      phenom that NFL Front Office 
      personnel must project to the NFL
      systems.  Does he go #2?  Does
      Trader-Chip move up?
On this update, rather than spending time writing narrative, I have concentrated the efforts on player-to-team matches, which is
ultimately what a good draft projection is trying to do.  While, yes, there are trades that come into mind (such as Washington and 
St. Louis flipping spots at #5 and #10 below), those items have not really been highlighted here.   Too much trade-talk in a mock
draft ends up coming off as childish and fantasy-like and I have a bit of a beef with seeing the absurd number of trades
included in many projections.  I believe the St. Louis Rams will end up being the best suitor for Marcus Mariota after the 
Titans decide to take the best player available and develop around their current QB, whom is a year ahead of Mariota in 
development.  The Rams truly do need to get a new face of the franchise and they're only a QB away from having  a pretty
nice squad.   Keep in mind, also, that the Rams get additional asset in the Bradford-for-Foles trade in the form of a 2016
2nd round draft pick.  This might give them the luxury of trading away their 2016 1st Rd. choice in a potential move up from
the #10 spot this year.  Ironically, they would potentially be dealing with the same team (Washington) to which the RGIII 
transactions took place a few years back!  Without further wait, the 2015 1st Rd. Projection:
