NFL Draft 2015: Predictions for Day 2

Chalk.

That's mostly what fans saw in the first round of the 2015 NFL draft—exactly what most of us expected to see. The only difference was for those (like myself) who expected to be wrong! We always expect to be wrong, because the draft does that to us every single year. 

Yet, for whatever reason, NFL teams simply stood in line and took their best player available. 

Maybe it's the quality of the class, that there were only a small handful of elite players and a deep class of better-than-mediocre talent. It became cost prohibitive to trade up to the very top of the draft and unnecessary later in the first. 

Or, maybe, teams were just empowered by stories of Dallas Cowboys executive Stephen Jones wrestling his father, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, away from the Johnny Manziel selection in 2014, resulting in a widespread revolt leading to an outbreak of logic against teams mortgaging their future. 

OK, so it's more likely to have been the former.

What can we expect to see on Day 2?
