The following rankings, broken up by positions, project how well the skills of each offensive player (See also: Defensive player rankings) in this year’s class will translate to the next level. These rankings reflect my opinions on who the best players are at each position in the draft, and do not intend to be predictive of where each player will be drafted.

The NFL’s annual Underwear Olympics officially went into full swing Friday as the offensive linemen and tight ends became the first position groups to take the field for their on-field workouts at the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine.

A number of projected first-round draft picks showed why they are top prospects, while a few other potential early-rounders had underwhelming day.
