Round 1 of the 2015 NFL Draft is in the books, and now we move on to the the second day, which features Rounds 2 and 3 and lot of talented players are still available.  The Redskins solved their OT/OG problem for the next decade by taking Brandon Scherff with the 5th overall pick yesterday.  The Redskins have a lot positions that could be upgraded with draft picks(OLB, S, ILB, WR, everything), but we'll have to wait to see how new GM Scot McCloughan handles needs/BPA tonight.  The 2nd Round begins at 7 pm tonight.

Players like Randy Gregory and La'el Collins have slipped out of the 1st round for off the field issues, and Collins could go undrafted due to an unresolved legal case.  Landon Collins is another big name, and was expected to be the first safety off the board in the first round by many.  There are also some cornerbacks who could have gone yesterday, but are still waiting for their names to be called.  When your team has won 7 games over the last two seasons, almost every position is going to be looked at here.  Who will be the best player available when the Redskins pick at 38?
