The 2015 NFL Draft is rapidly approaching. We’re just under a month away now.

There are prospects being touted as surefire first-rounders. Then there are some that carry major red flags. Then there are these guys.

Below we’ve listed five prospects who are rapidly climbing up draft boards and may have done enough in the combine, Pro Day workouts and team interviews to boost themselves into Round 1. Here are the five biggest risers:

1. Breshad Perriman, WR

If you want speed, look no further than Perriman.

The Central Florida wide receiver has reportedly lined up 18 visits to NFL teams, including the likes of the Lions and Eagles, the latter a very intriguing landing spot whether it’s at pick No. 20 or if he lasts until Round 2.

Perriman is being touted as a player who can most certainly create separation from NFL cornerbacks and has enough size at 6-foot-2 and 212 pounds to be a threat making plays after the catch. He’s long been considered a second-rounder, but his stock has rapidly grown and is becoming one of the most sought-after players that might not slip past pick No. 32.
