Jameis Winston was the No. 1 selection in the 2015 NFL Draft as expected, and Marcus Mariota followed to the Tennessee Titans.

It wasn’t until the San Diego Chargers traded up to No. 15 to select Melvin Gordon with a pick that originally belonged to the San Francisco 49ers that we saw a trade take place in Chicago.
