2015 NFL Draft: Who Is Your Top Choice?

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Let's pretend for a moment that the New York Jets are drafting first overall. They have their pick of the litter; everyone is available. In that scenario, who would you want? What I'm essentially asking is, who do you think is the best player in the draft, for this team. For me, it would likely be Dante Fowler, Jr., who I believe would elevate this defense to legendary status. I think he'll be the next Khalil Mack. He can set the edge and he'll be a dynamic pass rusher. He's perfect for Todd Bowles' famous A gap blitzes. He has experience from a number of different positions, and he'll feast with this defensive line and secondary. He's one of the only players in this draft that I have zero questions about and am convinced he'll thrive regardless of where he goes. With the current personnel on this team, and the way Bowles is expected to use them, I don't think anyone makes more sense than Fowler.

What do you think? Who would you choose? I expect a number of you will reply with Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota, so let me add an additional request. If it's one of those two quarterbacks, give us a non-quarterback, just for diversity's sake.
