Welcome Back to the “Bolt Beat Fans Mock”!
Over the past week we have been selecting draft picks to come up with our very own Bolt Beat Mock Draft to send over to TT and the Chargers tomorrow morning so they have the fan’s input before the 2015 NFL draft begins.
If you recall the voting was too close in the first round and we split the mock into two versions and proceeded through four rounds. We did not go into rounds 5 and 6 because talent drops off the board there and at that point TT and the Chargers should be selecting the best player available.
As promised today is the day we decide which mock to send, but because we here at Bolt Beat believe in doing things bigger and better there will be not 2 but 6 mocks to choose from. That is right, we have three times the amount of promised mocks!!!!!

The first two mocks will be the ones the fans voted for. The third and fourth will be Tazz’s mocks which includes my belief that the Chargers will nab a QB in the first 3 rounds. (I’m not saying they should, I just think they will) The fifth will be Marcel’s mock. (Surprise, Marcel!) I included Marcel’s selections because he has been pretty outspoken here over the last week. The final mock is from our editor and chief Ernie.
Enough Jibber Jabber…. ON WITH THE MOCKS!
