NFL Draft Big Board: Top 100 Post Senior Bowl

Senior Bowl week was awesome as we got to see some excellent standout players shine and others we weren’t familiar with take the big stage. Projected first round picks like Justin Herbert, Javon Kinlaw and Terrell Lewis showed up. Unheralded prospects like Kyle Dugger, Ben Bartch and Dane Jackson showed they were more than ready for the NFL. Overall, it was a great opportunity to evaluate these players in a different setting and see them put to the test against many others they are competing against to be drafted.

Between the College Football Playoff, East-West Shrine Bowl and Senior Bowl, a lot has changed since my last big board. While there are still plenty of questions left following the week, we now have a much better sense for where each player stands heading into the combine. There will be plenty more to learn and dissect following week-long event, but as we stand, here is my latest top 100 prospects.

  1. Ohio State LogoChase Young, EDGE, Ohio State
    Unquestionably the best prospect in the draft. About as polished as you could hope for as a pass rusher entering the league. Young does an excellent job against the run as well.
  2. Ohio State LogoJeff Okudah, CB, Ohio State
    The more I watch Jeff Okudah, the more I love what I see. He mirrors receivers so well and shows excellent closing speed to disrupt passes. He seals it with being a proven tackler as well.
  3. Alabama LogoJerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama
    This is one of, if not the best receiver class ever. It is headlined by Jerry Jeudy, who has showcased the speed, ability to separate and awareness to be an elite NFL receiver. He has had a few drops, but it looks like a fixable problem.
  4. Clemson LogoIsaiah Simmons, LB/S, Clemson
    You could start Isaiah Simmons in a lot of places. He could be an excellent off-ball linebacker or a ball hawking safety. His speed, instincts and football IQ make him an elite defensive prospect.
  5. LSU LogoJoe Burrow, QB, LSU
    After an incredible senior season, Joe Burrow will likely be the first overall pick. He has incredible mobility and excels at making plays outside the pocket. He doesn’t have the strongest arm, but he can still make plays down the field. His intermediate accuracy is scary good.
  6. Oklahoma LogoCeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma
    If you want a player who can make something out of seemingly nothing, CeeDee Lamb is for you. Put on the film against Texas and you will see him simply willing himself to the end zone. He will have to prove he can generate separation at the next level, but his playmaking skill makes him an immediate starter.
  7. iowa_wordmarkA.J. Epenesa, EDGE, Iowa
    I list A.J. Epenesa as an edge player, but he could also kick inside as a five technique tackle. That versatility makes him an intriguing option for any team needing a disruptive defensive linemen. He played exceptionally well over his final few college games.
  8. Alabama LogoTua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama
    Were it not for the injury, Tua Tagovailoa would push Joe Burrow for the top quarterback taken in 2020. As it stands, there are major red flags regarding Tua’s durability. When healthy, he reminds many of a southpaw Drew Brees.
  9. Georgia LogoAndrew Thomas, OT, Georgia
    When you turn on tape of Andrew Thomas, you see someone with the power to be an high-level starter in the pros. He struggles at times with speed rushers, but he has the frame and technique to start right away.
  10. Alabama LogoHenry Ruggs, WR, Alabama
    Meet the fastest player in this draft. One of the most exciting things about the upcoming combine will be if Henry Ruggs threatens the 40-yard dash record. He is a complete receiver and decent size given his explosiveness.
  11. Auburn_Tigers_logoDerrick Brown, DL, Auburn
    I’m not as high on Derrick Brown as most. He has shown flashes of being a game-wrecker, but he is too inconsistent as a pass rusher for me. However, he might be the best interior lineman against the run in this class.
  12. South Carolina logoJavon Kinlaw, DL, South Carolina
    Javon Kinlaw essentially ran unchecked through Mobile. He bolstered what already an impressive draft stock and proved he is a great interior rusher. If he measures well at the combine and shows some good agility in the three cone drill, he could move ahead of Brown.
  13. Clemson LogoTee Higgins, WR, Clemson
    The biggest knock on Tee Higgins is his inability to separate. I think that has been overblown and his catch radius should limit those concerns anyway. There might not be a better jump ball player in this draft.
  14. iowa_wordmarkTristan Wirfs, OL, Iowa
    I think Tristan Wirfs projects best as an interior lineman, but he does have some experience at both tackle positions. He moves well for a player his size. He is a more polished version of Mekhi Becton.
  15. Alabama LogoJedrick Wills, OT, Alabama
    While he might not be as physically imposing as the other tackles projected in the first round, Jedrick Wills is the best pass blocker of the bunch. He isn’t a mauler, but he is technically sound and pro ready.
  16. Ohio State LogoJ.K. Dobbins, RB, Ohio State
    Few running backs have the blend of speed and power J.K. Dobbins possesses. He will likely go a lot later than this on draft day, but he is that talented. Position value will just cause him to slide.
  17. Oklahoma LogoKenneth Murray, LB, Oklahoma
    The NFL continues to trend towards smaller, faster linebackers. Kenneth Murray fits the mold of the new prototype. His speed alone makes him an impact player. He wraps up well and with a little refining in coverage, he should be a three-down player.
  18. colorado_buffaloes_alternate_logoLaviska Shenault Jr., WR, Colorado
    Laviska Shenault gets lost in the shuffle of the big name receivers in this draft. Prior to a banged up 2019 season, Shenault dominated the Pac-12 in 2018. He is athletic and has some interesting positional diversity. Colorado used him as a wildcat quarterback just to get the ball in his hands more.
  19. LSU LogoJustin Jefferson, WR, LSU
    No player benefited more from Joe Burrow’s Heisman season than Justin Jefferson. He thrust himself into the first round conversation with an incredible statistical season. He has the size and physical skills to be a No. 1 receiver in the NFL.
  20. Oregon logoJustin Herbert, QB, Oregon
    There are still some questions regarding Justin Herbert, but he showed he could be a leader at the Senior Bowl. He showcased his arm talent once again. His mobility makes him a dynamic option who could develop into a Pro-Bowl-level quarterback.
  21. Wisconsin logoTyler Biadasz, OL, Wisconsin
    Teams looking for a plug and play center will be doing their homework on Tyler Biadasz. He is a grinder and has put together some excellent tape. He had hip surgery at the end of the year, which is certainly a red flag. How he tests at the combine could solidify his first round status or drop him out of the top 50.
  22. Penn State logoYetur Gross-Matos, EDGE, Penn State
    Yetur Gross-Matos put together another solid season following an impressive 2018 campaign. He has the size to play as a 4-3 or a 3-4 outside linebacker. He should be a situational pass rusher from Day 1.
  23. LSU LogoGrant Delpit, S, LSU
    In terms of diagnosing plays and putting himself in position to succeed, Grant Delpit is a great player. He struggles to always make those plays though. A clear inability to wrap up showed up on film this year and he needs to improve his angles downfield.
  24. LSU LogoKristian Fulton, CB, LSU
    Often overshadowed by Derrick Stingley Jr., Kristian Fulton has the physical tools to develop into a No. 1 corner. He tracks the ball well in the air and will make some plays in coverage. He still has to iron out some inconsistencies and show he can handle the pressure of being picked on.
  25. Alabama LogoXavier McKinney, S, Alabama
    For teams looking for an aggressive safety, Xavier McKinney checks a lot of the desired boxes. He measures in well and he can play up near the line. He is comfortable stepping into the slot occasionally as well.
  26. Louisville logoMekhi Becton, OT, Louisville
    Mekhi Becton is a behemoth. He is 6’7″ and roughly 365 pounds. His power in absolutely incredible. He is also incredibly raw. His potential is huge, but he definitely needs a decent amount of work before he can be trusted as a starter.
  27. Alabama LogoTerrell Lewis, EDGE, Alabama
    After a solid week in Mobile, Terrell Lewis is showing some depth to his game in addition to just being a pass rusher. He played some off-ball linebacker and flashed his athleticism. Testing well could see him crack the top 20.
  28. Florida logoCJ Henderson, CB, Florida
    At times, CJ Henderson looks ready to make the jump. At others, Henderson can look overmatched and out of position. He breaks well on the ball and uses his hands well to break up passes. He needs to improve his press coverage.
  29. Georgia LogoD’Andre Swift, RB, Georgia
    The hype around Georgia’s offense dipped in the second half of the year. Word is injury slowed down D’Andre Swift during the drop off. I want to see him compete at full health at the combine to see how dynamic he can truly be.
  30. Utah_Utes_logoBradlee Anae, EDGE, Utah
    This is my biggest draft crush at this point. Bradlee Anae jumped out on tape over the past month of the season and dominated the Senior Bowl. He showed out in the game and has a first round grade from me at the moment.
  31. LSU LogoK’Lavon Chaisson, EDGE, LSU
    As a pass rusher, K’Lavon Chaisson is a speed rusher with decent power. The thing that bothers me is how bad he is against the run. He never keeps contain and will get dragged for extra yardage.
  32. USC logoMichael Pittman, WR, USC
    Another Senior Bowl standout here. He sat out Saturday’s game with an ankle injury, but he balled out in practice. Michael Pittman lacks blazing speed, but he can still separate and projects as an excellent possession receiver.
  33. 800px-virginia_cavaliers_wordmarkBryce Hall, CB, Virginia
    Prior to an ankle injury, Bryce Hall was playing like a first round pick for Virginia. If he can get healthy by the combine, he could work his way back into the first round.
  34. Alabama LogoTrevon Diggs, CB, Alabama
    Trevon Diggs has the size and speed that NFL teams love. However, he has some rough games on film. There were a lot of corners torched by LSU, but it still shows Diggs has some growing to do.
  35. 350px-utah_state_aggies_logo.svg_Jordan Love, QB, Utah State
    One of the most controversial prospects in this class, I think Jordan Love would be an excellent value in the late first round or early second round. His arm talent is impressive. His decision making and inability to move through his reads is concerning.
  36. Oklahoma LogoNeville Gallimore, DL, Oklahoma
    Few players bring the type of savvy Neville Gallimore has. He should be a high floor, starting option early in his career. He looked sharp during Senior Bowl week.
  37. LSU LogoPatrick Queen, LB, LSU
    I still have a lot more film to break down on Patrick Queen after expecting him to return to school for most of the year. While I think he is currently being overhyped, showing up on a big stage is promising.
  38. logo_of_university_of_houston_athleticsJosh Jones, OT, Houston
    One of the clear winners from Senior Bowl week, Josh Jones is now generating first round buzz. He solidifies himself in that second tier of tackles. His potential and grit are enticing.
  39. 237px-arizona_state_sun_devils_baseball_logo.svg_Brandon Aiyuk, WR, Arizona State
    Unfortunately, Brandon Aiyuk was forced to sit out Senior Bowl week with an injury. His production from his senior year has some talking about him being a first round pick. He gets vertical and stacks defensive backs well to make big plays downfield.
  40. 1280px-boise_state_22b22_logo.svg_Curtis Weaver, EDGE, Boise State
    One of the most consistent players in college football over the past three years, Curtis Weaver finished his junior year with 13.5 sacks and a career total 34. I’m eager to see him at the combine.
  41. 250px-tcu_horned_frogs_logo.svg_Jalen Reagor, WR, TCU
    Speedy playmakers that play above the rim are a commodity. Jalen Reagor had a dominant 2018 season before taking a step back this year. If he can clean up the drops at the combine, he should have enough physical skill to standout in a loaded draft class.
  42. Wisconsin logoZach Baun, LB, Wisconsin
    Zach Baun completely changed the scouting report on himself during Senior Bowl week. After spending his time at Wisconsin as an edge rusher, he showed his versatility and coachability by moving to linebacker. He could draw first round interest.
  43. 300px-california_golden_bears_logo.svg_Ashtyn Davis, S, California
    As a track star at California, Ashtyn Davis could stand out at the combine. He missed out on the Senior Bowl with an injury. He still has some questions to answer about his ability to cover at the next level.
  44. Notre Dame LogoJulian Okwara, EDGE, Notre Dame
    After wrapping a solid if unspectacular career at Notre Dame, Julian Okwara is a player capable of making an early impact. He failed to take a step forward during his senior year, but he has some potential to develop into a consistent pass rusher.
  45. 250px-tcu_horned_frogs_logo.svg_Ross Blacklock, DL, TCU
    I am still in the early stages of breaking down film on Ross Blacklock. He has great size and holds his position well. More to come on him.
  46. USC logoAustin Jackson, OT, USC
    Prior to his bowl game, there was some first round hype around Austin Jackson. That died down after he struggled to keep up with A.J. Epenesa. He has the physical tools to develop into a starting left tackle.
  47. Wisconsin logoJonathan Taylor, RB, Wisconsin
    From a talent perspective, Jonathan Taylor is near the top of the class. However, he has a ton of mileage on his legs and issues with fumbling. That makes it harder to justify picking him.
  48. MichiganWolverinesDonovan Peoples-Jones, WR, Michigan
    It is becoming more and more apparent that his lack of production was likely linked to Shea Patterson. He should be an intriguing option to improve in a new offense.
  49. Notre Dame LogoCole Kmet, TE, Notre Dame
    I am still working on catching up on Cole Kmet film after he changed his draft decision. He shows good hands and has the size NFL teams want at the position.
  50. 212px-temple_t_logo.svg_Matt Hennessy, OL, Temple
    Matt Hennessey won’t overwhelm anyone with his power, but he fits well into any zone scheme. He has no problem sprinting out on reach blocks and picking up players in the second level.
  51. 250px-tcu_horned_frogs_logo.svg_Jeff Gladney, CB, TCU
    He doesn’t jump off the page from a measurable or statistical standpoint, but Jeff Gladney is consistent and crafty. He understands how to position himself well to make plays. Would love to see him come up with a few more interceptions.
  52. MichiganWolverinesCesar Ruiz, OL, Michigan
    Projects as a starting center at the next level. Cesar Ruiz has the size you want for an interior linemen.
  53. Clemson LogoJohn Simpson, G, Clemson
    About as battle tested as they come. John Simpson played in back-to-back championship games and held up well against some very good competition.
  54. Auburn_Tigers_logoMarlon Davidson, DL, Auburn
    I am still a little uncertain what Marlon Davidson’s best fit in the NFL will be. He lined up all over the place for Auburn. That type of versatility is something to work with.
  55. Penn State logoKJ Hamler, WR, Penn State
    I am much lower on the Penn State speedster than most. I don’t see KJ Hamler as being much more than an average slot receiver. His speed is his best quality.
  56. Auburn_Tigers_logoPrince Tega Wangho, OT, Auburn
    He was put through the ringer at times blocking in the SEC. He still has some room to grow, but I like his ability in pass protection.
  57. Florida logoJonathan Greenard, EDGE, Florida
    He isn’t too flashy, but he works hard and understands his assignments. Greenard made a good impression after transferring from Louisville to Florida.
  58. Ohio State LogoMalik Harrison, LB, Ohio State
    A downhill playmaker, Malik Harrison is a fun prospect. He made a lot of disruptive plays. He still has to grow as a block shedder and coverage option.
  59. LSU LogoLloyd Cushenberry, OL, LSU
    He struggled through the College Football Playoff, but put together a solid week in Mobile. He has some plug and play potential.
  60. Ohio State LogoDamon Arnette, CB, Ohio State
    Clearly not as well known as Ohio State’s other corners, Damon Arnette played a solid final game of his college career. He can press well and could develop into an outside option.
  61. Utah_Utes_logoLeki Fotu, DL, Utah
    He is a massive man playing in the middle of defensive lines. Leki Fotu has excellent burst off the line as a pass rusher. He has a ways to go with his technique and stamina.
  62. Washington Huskies logoJacob Eason, QB, Washington
    The strong-arm quarterback from Washington has more questions than answers. His lack of mobility is concerning, but Jacob Eason’s arm talent should see him go on Day 2.
  63. Oregon logoTroy Dye, LB, Oregon
    A tough and fast linebacker, Troy Dye is a bit undersized even by today’s expectations. He fights through traffic well, but needs to up his play strength.
  64. vanderbilt_commodoresJared Pickney, TE, Vanderbilt
    Jared Pickney is the most well-rounded tight end in this class. He is a solid blocker and showed his chops as a pass catcher. His play is consistently above average.
  65. MichiganWolverinesJosh Uche, EDGE, Michigan
    Much like Bradlee Anae, Josh Uche had an excellent showing at the Senior Bowl. He showed his speed off the edge consistently. Uche hasn’t shown a whole lot of other ways he can win though.
  66. Alabama LogoRaekwon Davis, DL, Alabama
    From a traits perspective, Raekwon Davis checks every box. From a production and reliability standpoint, Davis has been a did. He has gone backwards in his final two years at Alabama.
  67. LSU LogoClyde Edwards-Helaire, RB, LSU
    Maurice Jones-Drew 2.0 showcased his bruising running style en route to a national title. Clyde Edwards-Helaire can catch the ball out of the backfield as well. His top speed is average at best, but he has a clear role to play.
  68. Baylor logoDenzel Mims, WR, Baylor
    Part of Baylor’s surprising resurgence this season, Denzel Mims proved he is a playmaker. He has excellent body control and seems to be improving as a route runner.
  69. 320px-dayton_flyers_winged-d_logo_redAdam Trautman, TE, Dayton
    Another riser from Senior Bowl week, Adam Trautman showed off some solid hands and decent blocking skills. He made some ground in this deepish tight end group.
  70. MichiganWolverinesBen Bredeson, G, Michigan
    Ben Bredeson had an uneven week in Mobile, with a couple of poor reps in 1-on-1 drills. However, he also flashed some solid technique and could develop into a quality option.
  71. Texas A&M logoJustin Manduibuike, DL, Texas A&M
    He showed up on tape for Texas A&M right away. He is relentless in his pursuit, but needs to improve at reading his keys.
  72. Texas_Longhorns_logoDevin Duvernay, WR, Texas
    Pretty much every receiver had a good week in Mobile, but I am really starting to like Devin Duvernay. He looks like a quality slot receiver with good route running ability. His film over Texas’ final few games is impressive.
  73. 176px-purdue_boilermakers_logo.svg_Brycen Hopkins, TE, Purdue
    My assessment of Brycen Hopkins is still very incomplete. At times, he looks like the best tight end in this draft. At others, he looks like a backup at best.
  74. uconn_logo1Matt Peart, OT, UConn
    Matt Peart might be the best of the project tackles in this class. His size and length make him a fun prospect to work with.
  75. Georgia LogoJake Fromm, QB, Georgia
    A lack of arm strength limits Jake Fromm’s upside. He is very cerebral and poised, but lacks the zip to hit tight windows or stretch the field.
  76. Auburn_Tigers_logoNoah Igbinoghene, CB, Auburn
    He is starting to generate some buzz. When I watch him, I see good speed and excellent use of the sideline to help him in coverage, limiting the space for receivers. He still has some work to do with his technique.
  77. Washington Huskies logoTrey Adams, OT, Washington
    When totally healthy, Trey Adams should be in the conversation with Josh Jones and Austin Jackson. A checkered injury history and shaky movement skills knock him down a lot.
  78. 250px-tcu_horned_frogs_logo.svg_Lucas Niang, OT, TCU
    Projecting as a right tackle, Lucas Niang has the size you want. He is pretty powerful, but still underdeveloped. He missed most of the year with an injury.
  79. redraiderlogoJordyn Brooks, LB, Texas Tech
    This is someone I could see rising up my board. He has good speed and can run with backs out of the backfield. He is smart with how he attacks opposing quarterbacks.
  80. Utah_Utes_logoJaylon Johnson, CB, Utah
    While he has some better moments, it is hard for me to get past the film against USC. Jaylon Johnson has no interest as a tackler and is still developing in coverage.
  81. Florida State LogoCam Akers, RB, Florida State
    Cam Akers is the type of player you can expect to improve in the NFL after getting out of that terrible Florida State offense. He should carve out a role early on with some potential to take over as a starter down the line.
  82. Michigan State logoKenny Willekes, EDGE, Michigan State
    He won’t wow you with his athleticism, but he grinds down opposing offensive linemen and finds way to be productive. Kenny Willekes could end up being a steal.
  83. 1000px-mississippi_state_bulldogs_logo.svg_Cameron Dantzler, CB, Mississippi State
    As a proven tackler, Cameron Dantzler will be on some teams boards for that reason alone. If he can refine his approach as a man corner, he will turn into a quality corner.
  84. Ohio State LogoKJ Hill, WR, Ohio State
    KJ Hill had an excellent week in Mobile, showing his route running ability. He still needs to work on generating separation earlier in his routes, but he is crafty.
  85. Clemson LogoA.J. Terrell, CB, Clemson
    What is the opposite of recency bias? A.J. Terrell got torched in a variety of ways in the national championship game. He is definitely a project player with some upside.
  86. 300px-california_golden_bears_logo.svg_Evan Weaver, LB, Cal
    Evan Weaver led the country in tackles this year. He has a nose for the football and contributes on special teams.
  87. Notre Dame LogoChase Claypool, WR, Notre Dame
    With teams looking to find red zone specialists, Chase Claypool should draw some interest. He has a big body and adjusts well to balls in the air.
  88. Ben Bartch, OT, St. John’s
    He came out to play with the big boys and did not disappoint. Ben Bartch has a steep learning curve ahead, but looks like a future starting tackle.
  89. Notre Dame LogoTroy Pride Jr., CB, Notre Dame
    As far as speed goes, Troy Pride showed at the Senior Bowl that he can run with anyone. Someone will take a chance on him with the hope of developing the rest of his game.
  90. Alabama LogoAnfernee Jennings, LB, Alabama
    I was surprised to see Anfernee Jennings listed as an inside linebacker on the Senior Bowl roster. I’m not sure how much upside I really see in a position switch for him.
  91. 320px-pittpanthersDane Jackson, CB, Pittsburgh
    He might not go to a small school, but Dane Jackson still came from way off the radar with his performance in Mobile. He made a really positive impression that is going to force me to watch some film on him.
  92. Florida logoVan Jefferson, WR, Florida
    This is much more of a traits thing than anything else. Van Jefferson didn’t have elite college production, but he showed in Mobile that he can make contested catches and find ways to create a window for quarterbacks to throw into.
  93. 1000px-north_carolina_state_university_athletic_logo.svg_Larrell Murchison, DL, NC State
    NC State seems to produce solid defensive linemen every year. Larrell Murchison should just continue the trend. He had a decent Senior Bowl week. I will be revisiting his film before the combine.
  94. 512px-oklahoma_state_university_athletics_logo_28four_colors29.svg_A.J. Green, CB, Oklahoma State
    Not to be confused with the injured Bengals receiver, A.J. Green made a name for himself at the Senior Bowl. He rose to the challenge of facing the incredible receivers in attendance and fared well.
  95. Kyle Dugger, S, Lenoir Rhyne
    I don’t even know where Lenoir Rhyne is, but I can tell you Kyle Dugger is an NFL-caliber player. He had some really nice moments in Mobile and acclimated nicely to the speed.
  96. Baylor logoJames Lynch, DL, Baylor
    After a fantastic season where he was named Big 12 defensive player of the year, James Lynch still seems like a mid round player. His production was impressive, but his upside and measurables are less so.
  97. Kentucky logoLogan Stenberg, G, Kentucky
    He didn’t stand out as much during Senior Bowl week, but he did nothing to hurt his stock. Logan Stenberg has some solid film in the SEC to fall back on.
  98. Washington Huskies logoNick Harris, C, Washington
    Pretty much everyone I have talked about had a good week in Mobile. Nick Harris did not. He got bullied in 1-on-1 drills. His tape is more promising, but this exposed some clear weaknesses.
  99. Georgia LogoIsaiah Wilson, OT, Georgia
    The other Georgia offensive tackle, Isaiah Wilson is all about his traits. He has the size and frame to develop into a starting option. He faced good competition, but he never stood out.
  100. 237px-arizona_state_sun_devils_baseball_logo.svg_Eno Benjamin, RB, Arizona State
    Eno Benjamin is a shifty running back I could see rising up boards at the combine. He played on a middling Arizona State team that didn’t get much press. He could start to work his way into the top five conversation with a good showing in Indianapolis.For more NFL Draft coverage, check out the Aftermath’s NFL Draft Podcast, with new episodes every Thursday.

2020 NFL Draft Big Board: Top 100

Declaration are coming in fast and furious. Tua Tagovailoa finally ended the wait as he declared on Monday, which is why these are coming out on Tuesday morning. The wide receiver class still looks incredible, but has lost a good chunk of its depth. We are still waiting for a number of players to make their final decisions and this board will change dramatically for February following the Senior Bowl. For where we are though in early January, this is where my board stands.

Now to clarify, big boards are meant to focus on the talent and upside of these prospects, almost in a vacuum. For more of how they will sort themselves out at the next level in terms of fit and value, that can be found in my latest mock draft, a three rounder right after the NFL regular season ended.

Ohio State Logo1. Chase Young, DE, Ohio State
No one should be questioning this any more. Chase Young is a special talent who will immediately transform a franchise’s front seven. If not for the need at quarterback, I would expect him to be the top pick in the draft.

LSU Logo2. Joe Burrow, QB, LSU
It has been an incredible run for Joe Burrow. He has rocketed up draft boards. He was not in my top 25 in September and was No. 17 in late October. His performances against Alabama, Auburn, Georgia and Oklahoma show why he is an elite quarterback prospect.

Ohio State Logo3. Jeffrey Okudah, CB, Ohio State
There might not be a larger gap between the top player and the next best prospect at a position in this class than Jeff Okudah and every other corner. He mirrors receivers exceptionally well and closes so well on the ball. Okudah should be a shutdown corner at the next level.

Alabama Logo4. Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama
In terms of physical tools and positive traits, Jerry Jeudy has everything you could ask for. He has struggled with some drops this season, but his route running and athleticism is top notch. He should still be the first receiver off the board.

Clemson Logo5. Isaiah Simmons, LB/S, Clemson
Is he a safety? Is he a linebacker? Does it matter? Isaiah Simmons is a Swiss-army knife. In the right defense, he can be a game-wrecker. His versatility is second to none. His speed and instincts make him a good fit for just about any defense.

Oklahoma Logo6. CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma
This receiver class is incredible. CeeDee Lamb would be the top option in most draft classes and showed off once again against LSU. Even though Oklahoma got blown out, Lamb had a great game against a talented secondary.

iowa_wordmark7. A.J. Epenesa, EDGE, Iowa
It was a slow start to the year for A.J. Epenesa, but he finished playing some of the best football in the country. He has the size and technique to be a great 4-3 defensive end. I will need to go back to the film to figure out why he struggled out of the gate, but he destroyed USC’s Austin Jackson in the Holiday Bowl.

Georgia Logo8. Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia
Andrew Thomas is still the top offensive tackle on my board, but the gap has closed considerably. He has prototypical size, and has shown solid power as a run blocker. I like him a lot as a pass blocker and he is certainly battle-tested after playing for three years in the SEC.

Alabama Logo9. Jedrick Wills, OT, Alabama
The reason the gap has closed on Andrew Thomas is because of the rise of Jedrick Wills. He played right tackle protecting Tua Tagovailoa’s blindside this season. He moves like an NFL tackle and should be able to contribute very early in his career.

Auburn_Tigers_logo10. Derrick Brown, DL, Auburn
Looking at Derrick Brown, he is an incredibly talented player. However, his overall value at the NFL level is up for debate. He will lock down the middle against the run, but he does not disrupt the passing game quite as much. Given the direction the NFL is headed, that could cause him to slide a little bit.

Alabama Logo11. Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama
We finally know! Tua Tagovailoa prevents this from being an underwhelming quarterback class. His injury history makes him a riskier prospect than we figured entering the year, but his upside is still tremendous.

Alabama Logo12. Henry Ruggs, WR, Alabama
I cannot wait to watch Henry Ruggs run the 40 at the NFL combine. It will just be fun. He is a speedster with great ball skills and the ideal frame to compete in the pros. Ruggs will fundamentally change just about any offense he lands in.

Wisconsin logo13. Tyler Biadasz, C, Wisconsin
I am a bit higher on Tyler Biadasz than most, but that is because he is such a rock-solid prospect. He moves well, brings a level of toughness needed to play along the interior of the offensive line and understands blocking schemes.

Clemson Logo14. Tee Higgins, WR, Clemson
Tee Higgins still has a great opportunity to bolster his draft stock. He will go up against some great defensive backs in the national title game. His size and body control make him a monster big-play threat.

iowa_wordmark15. Tristan Wirfs, OL, Iowa
I am still undecided for where exactly Tristan Wirfs will fit in the NFL. He has the size and build of a guard, but he moves more like a tackle. He reminds me a lot of Brandon Scherff. He should be a good player, but he might be best-suited to play on the interior.

LSU Logo16. Grant Delpit, S, LSU
Grant Delpit has the play style of an elite NFL safety. He just has missed a few plays this year. Physically, I think he will transition well, but he just needs to improve his tackling to warrant being a top-20 draft pick.

South Carolina logo17. Javon Kinlaw, DL, South Carolina
There is no better interior pass rusher in this draft class than Javon Kinlaw. His numbers might not bear that out, but he moves so well for his size. Kinlaw constantly faced double teams as well and still managed to make an impact.

Georgia Logo18. D’Andre Swift, RB, Georgia
The hype has cooled on D’Andre Swift after a lackluster close to the season. Swift still checks all the boxes for a top-tier NFL running back. He has enough receiving work and a light enough college work load to make you feel good about his ability to contribute in all facets of the offense.

LSU Logo19. Justin Jefferson, WR, LSU
I know recency bias is a real thing, but it is hard not to be impressed with his most recent tape. Justin Jefferson separates well and understands how to be effective as a route runner. Barring a terrible game against Clemson, he should land in the first round.

LSU Logo20. Kristian Fulton, DB, LSU
Kristian Fulton tracks the ball well and has the size needed to compete in the NFL. He needs to work on his hand usage and continue working on his technique. The biggest knock on Fulton’s play this year is he might be the third-best player in his own secondary.

colorado_buffaloes_alternate_logo21. Laviska Shenault Jr., WR, Colorado
There is not as much hype around Laviska Shenault Jr. as a lot of the other top receivers, but he should be in the same conversation. His athleticism and versatility make him a great option to work into any offense. His production took a hit, but he was dealing with injuries during the year.

Stanford Cardinal22. Paulson Adebo, CB, Stanford
Teams looking for a ball-hawking corner will be high on Paulson Adebo. He has the size and physicality to fit well into zone-heavy defenses. He closes well on the ball and shows the ball skills to make impact plays.

1280px-boise_state_22b22_logo.svg_23. Curtis Weaver, EDGE, Boise State
Curtis Weaver wraps up a great career at Boise State, finishing with 34 career sacks over his three years. He should be a situational pass rusher who can work his way into an every-down player before too long.

Ohio State Logo24. J.K. Dobbins, RB, Ohio State
J.K. Dobbins took a big bump after his performance vs. Clemson, but he has been building toward this in the second half of the year. His speed and hard-nosed style should translate well. His production makes him very enticing.

Penn State logo25. Yetur Gross-Matos, DE, Penn State
In addition to being a great pass rusher, Yetur Gross-Matos is a high-motor, high-character prospect. His production speaks for itself. Those other intangibles make it easy to feel good about building your culture and improving your football team.

Florida logo26. CJ Henderson, CB, Florida
There is a bit of a troubling trend among Florida corners headed to the NFL. Vernon Hargreaves, Teez Tabor and Quincy Wilson have all failed to translate. That shouldn’t rule out CJ Henderson because each prospect is unique, but he will require some extra film study.

Alabama Logo27. Terrell Lewis, EDGE, Alabama
Terrell Lewis projects as a great NFL pass rusher. He has the size, bend and speed to play as an edge rusher in a 3-4 scheme. Lewis bounced back well after missing 2018 due to injury.

Oregon logo28. Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon
Traits wise, Justin Herbert could be top of this class. He has the size, arm talent and mobility that fits the bill for a prototypical pro passer. His film tells a different story. He will be an interesting study in the pre-draft process.

Oklahoma Logo29. Kenneth Murray, LB, Oklahoma
NFL teams are looking to add speed on defense more and more. That could push Kenneth Murray up a lot of draft boards. He made a lot of plays in a wide open conference. He has sideline-to-sideline linebacker potential.

Alabama Logo30. Trevon Diggs, CB, Alabama
With his size and athleticism, Trevon Diggs has the tools to be a starting corner in the NFL. He got beat up a bit by JaMar Chase when Alabama played LSU, which just goes to show he still has a bit of refining to do.

Alabama Logo31. Xavier McKinney, S, Alabama
Xavier McKinney brings brash confidence and proven playmaking ability to the table. He has the versatility to drop back in coverage or make plays around the line of scrimmage.

Oklahoma Logo32. Creed Humphrey, G, Oklahoma
Much like Tyler Biadasz, Creed Humphrey feels like a very safe pick. He will come in and play consistently from day one. He can lock up well in pass protection and is used to playing with mobile quarterbacks.

LSU Logo33. K’Lavon Chaisson, EDGE, LSU
K’Lavon Chaisson is one of the most intriguing draft prospects this year. He plays extremely fast and can be disruptive as a pass rusher. He is a bit undersized though and struggles to set the edge against the run. He will start as a situational pass rusher. Teams will have to hope he can develop into more than that.

250px-tcu_horned_frogs_logo.svg_34. Jalen Reagor, WR, TCU
He is an aggressive receiver who plays much bigger than his size. Jalen Reagor did not put up the same kind of numbers in 2019, but that does not diminish the speed and toughness he brings to the position.

Notre Dame Logo35. Julian Okwara, EDGE, Notre Dame
Julian Okwara is another good fit to be a 4-3 defensive end who can rush the passer. He is not the most physically imposing, but he can use his quickness to set up opposing lineman well.

Notre Dame Logo36. Cole Kmet, TE, Notre Dame
I will be honest, I haven’t done a ton of homework on Cole Kmet yet. He has the physical tools to be a great tight end in the NFL. He should be a bit more complete than his counterparts in this class.

Clemson Logo37. A.J. Terrell, CB, Clemson
After a solid showing in the College Football Playoff semifinal, A.J. Terrell should be sitting somewhere in the top 50 on a lot of draft boards. He has good technique in coverage, which serves him well downfield.

Wisconsin logo38. Jonathan Taylor, RB, Wisconsin
There are two big red flags with Jonathan Taylor: fumbling and longevity. He just wrapped up one of the great careers we have ever seen, but he also has close to 1,000 career touches. That could end up causing him to break down earlier at a particularly bruising position. He also finished with 18 career fumbles.

800px-virginia_cavaliers_wordmark39. Bryce Hall, CB, Virginia
I wish Bryce Hall hadn’t gotten hurt. I’m sure he does too, but I would have loved to see him play against Clemson and Florida to close the year. His impact on Virginia’s defense cannot be overstated. He was a true leader for that group.

USC logo40. Michael Pittman Jr., WR, USC
Talk about being a quarterback’s safety blanket. Michael Pittman finished with the fourth-most catches in college football this season. He should be a solid possession receiver with the potential to make the occasional big play. I like his consistency.

300px-california_golden_bears_logo.svg_41. Ashtyn Davis, S, California
Cal finished the season on a high note by cruising past Illinois. Ashtyn Davis is drawing a lot of attention as well. His speed is great, as he is a member of the school’s track team. He will give a defensive coordinator a lot to work with when it comes to molding his game.

USC logo42. Austin Jackson, OT, USC
I had been leaning toward pushing Austin Jackson into the top 30 before the Holiday Bowl. He got worked over by A.J. Epenesa, but he also won a couple of those matchups. Those flashes show what Jackson can be with a bit more work on his hand placement and footwork.

Clemson Logo43. Travis Etienne, RB, Clemson
Travis Etienne showed once again why he is one of the most explosive players in college football. He is a tough runner with a lot of heart. The concern is his vision. He struggles to find the hole sometimes, meaning he can strung out or get caught up with trying to hit a home run instead of taking what is available to him.

Ohio State Logo44. Malik Harrison, LB, Ohio State
In the right system, Malik Harrison can be a disruptive force. We saw that this year as Ohio State allowed him to attack downhill more often and utilized him as a playmaker. If he can improve on his reading of opposing offenses, he will be a very solid player.

MichiganWolverines45. Donovan Peoples-Jones, WR, Michigan
Coming out of an offense that had other solid receivers and that didn’t throw the ball a ton, Donovan Peoples-Jones’ numbers won’t pop out at you. He only 438 yards receiving this year, actually down from last year. His physical talent should lead to more production in the NFL.

Alabama Logo46. Najee Harris, RB, Alabama
Najee Harris might be the most complete back in this class. He is not elite at much, but he does a lot well. He can be elusive or powerful in his running style. He has great athleticism, but not game-breaking speed. He showed some pass-catching ability this year as well. He reminds me a bit of Chris Carson.

Oklahoma Logo47. Neville Gallimore, DL, Oklahoma
One of the more proven prospects in this range, Neville Gallimore will offer a steady interior presence who looks pro ready. His ceiling is not crazy high, but he has some craftiness to his pass rush style that should make him effective.

512px-oklahoma_state_university_athletics_logo_28four_colors29.svg_48. Chubba Hubbard, RB, Oklahoma State
There might not be a player that meant more to his offense than Chuba Hubbard did to Oklahoma State. He led the country in rushes and yards this season. He has the top-end speed teams will love.

237px-arizona_state_sun_devils_baseball_logo.svg_49. Brandon Aiyuk, WR, Arizona State
Capable of taking the top off defenses, Brandon Aiyuk could move up after the Senior Bowl and combine. He got overshadowed a lot because he was playing for a middling team, but the talent is there.

Wisconsin logo50. Zack Baun, EDGE, Wisconsin
Zack Baun definitely strikes me as a prospect that is scheme specific. He is smart and pretty refined. I think there might be some physical limitations to his game though, which could limit his upside.

Washington Huskies logo51. Jacob Eason, QB, Washington
From an arm talent perspective, Jacob Eason is an NFL quarterback. Unfortunately, he seems to lack the mobility and possibly the poise to play the position. This was his first year starting in a new system, so maybe he can learn over time, but he struggled at points this season.

logo_of_university_of_houston_athletics52. Josh Jones, OT, Houston
Down the line, Josh Jones could be a starting left tackle in the NFL. He is still a little raw despite being a fifth-year senior. If he can be brought up to speed, he should be able to hold his own and develop.

Alabama Logo53. Raekwon Davis, DL, Alabama
With a massive frame, Raekwon Davis certainly stands out. He just never really made the jump many anticipated. He should still be a serviceable NFL player, but he might never be a star.

176px-purdue_boilermakers_logo.svg_54. Brycen Hopkins, TE, Purdue
In a weak tight end class, Brycen Hopkins had a real chance to be the top one taken until Cole Kmet announced he was leaving Notre Dame. Hopkins is a solid receiver with decent route-running savvy. He is not a blocker though, limiting his upside.

Auburn_Tigers_logo55. Prince Tega Wanogho, OT, Auburn
There is something to work with in Prince Tega Wanogho. He looks like he understands his assignments well, picking up stunts. He fared decently well against good competition. He is not a mauler, but he is pretty technically sound.

Louisville logo56. Mekhi Becton, OT, Louisville
One of the largest players in the draft, Mekhi Becton will likely get a look from some teams wanting a tackle project. Others could want to kick him inside given his size. You can’t coach length though, which is why teams will be interested in him.

Florida logo57. Jonathan Greenard, LB, Florida
Jonathan Greenard is shaping up to be a solid pass rusher. He finished the year with 9.5 sacks. It was a good sign after he sat out 2018 due to transfer rules. He proved himself in the SEC this year and should warrant Day 2 consideration.

202px-tennessee_volunteers_logo.svg_58. Trey Smith, OL, Tennessee
After starting at left tackle in 2018, Trey Smith kicked inside and showed why he is a future NFL guard. He has raw power that he uses well. His medical past is a huge red flag with blood clots in his lungs costing him a lot of games during his career.

Penn State logo59. KJ Hamler, WR, Penn State
I am not as high on the speedster from Penn State as others. KJ Hamler is very small at 5’9″, 176 pounds. He seems destined to be a slot receiver. That doesn’t mean he won’t be effective, but I think it limits his upside.

250px-tcu_horned_frogs_logo.svg_60. Jeff Gladney, CB, TCU
While the Big 12 might not feature the best defenses, there are a lot of high-flying offenses Jeff Gladney had to go up against. He understands the technique required to play outside corner, even if he can’t always make the necessary play.

Washington Huskies logo61. Nick Harris, OL, Washington
While he struggled at times in pass protection this year, Nick Harris has the footwork and size to translate well at the next level. He could help himself a lot in Mobile.

Oregon logo62. Troy Dye, LB, Oregon
Troy Dye would never be considered an NFL linebacker 10 years ago. As teams have opted for more speed on defense though, smaller linebackers have become more common. Dye likely needs to add a bit to his frame still to really sift though traffic and make plays, but he has a nose for the ball.

Washington Huskies logo63. Trey Adams, OT, Washington
From a size profile, Trey Adams looks like an NFL tackle. He shows good initial punch to stem bullrushes and navigates well in the run game. The biggest question is his ability to move in space and slide as a pass blocker. He is someone to watch in Mobile.

Ohio State Logo64. Damon Arnette, CB, Ohio State
Damon Arnette made a good impression vs. Clemson with some solid play. He excels in press man coverage. If he shows out at the Senior Bowl, he could crack the top 50.

1000px-mississippi_state_bulldogs_logo.svg_65. Daryl Williams, OL, Mississippi State
With the size needed to play inside, there is some concern about Daryl Williams’ power. He offers some flexibility along the interior, but he will have to do some work in an NFL weight room to be ready for the next level.

Texas A&M logo66. Justin Mandubuike, DL, Texas A&M
With solid measurables and an SEC pedigree, Justin Mandubuike will be on scouts radars headed into the combine. He still has a ways to go with his technique and foundation, but those are things that can be fixed with good coaching.

Washington Huskies logo67. Hunter Bryant, TE, Washington
After catching passes from Jacob Eason all year, Hunter Bryant could shoot up some draft boards if he puts up gaudy numbers in Indianapolis. He doesn’t have a ton of film because of some injuries that kept him out during his first two years.

Utah_Utes_logo68. Jaylon Johnson, DB, Utah
Jaylon Johnson will be a player to watch at the Senior Bowl. He has some work to do technique wise. Given time, he could develop into a good outside option.

250px-tcu_horned_frogs_logo.svg_69. Lucas Niang, OL, TCU
Projecting as a right tackle, Lucas Niang saw his season end early. He underwent season-ending surgery to repair a torn hip labrum. He has the necessary power to play on the right side.

350px-utah_state_aggies_logo.svg_70. Jordan Love, QB, Utah State
While many will have Jordan Love mocked in the first round, I have a round 3 grade on him currently. He had a pretty rough season at Utah State without a ton of proven talent around him. His decision making was particularly concerning.

MichiganWolverines71. Ben Bredeson, OL, Michigan
Ben Bredeson has the power to be a punishing blocker along the interior of the offensive line. Scouts will like his size and ability to set up blocks at the second level.

Miami logo72. Shaquille Quarterman, LB, Miami
Playing as an off-ball linebacker, Shaquille Quarterman was around the ball a lot. He finished the year with 107 tackles. He could be a projectable starter down the line.

1000px-mississippi_state_bulldogs_logo.svg_73. Cameron Dantzler, CB, Mississippi State
At 6’2″, Cameron Dantzler is well-position to climb up the board if he runs well at the combine. NFL teams love corners that have a mixture of size and speed.

Clemson Logo74. John Simpson, G, Clemson
If you want an interior lineman with lots of big game experience, John Simpson is your guy. He will start his third straight national championship game on Monday.

vanderbilt_commodores75. Jared Pickney, TE, Vanderbilt
Jared Pickney might not be the most polished receiving tight end in this class, but he brings some blocking to the table as well. He has the potential to be a well-rounded starting option.

800px-fresno_state_bulldogs_baseball_logo.svg_76. Netane Muti, OL, Fresno State
Long term potential is big for Netane Muti. He does not figure to be a day one starter, but could develop into a quality lineman with the right coaching.

Michigan State logo77. Kenny Willekes, EDGE, Michigan State
At times, Kenny Willekes can wreck games. He seems like a solid situational rusher with a high floor and low ceiling.

202px-tennessee_volunteers_logo.svg_78. Darrell Taylor, EDGE, Tennessee
With his ability to drop into coverage and rush the passer, Darrell Taylor should find himself on the field right away. He will have a long way to go as run defender though.

Georgia Logo79. Jake Fromm, QB, Georgia
No one player has slid more for me this year than Jake Fromm. He could be a great NFL quarterback in the right system surrounded by the right talent. He has an average arm, but good pocket presence. His athleticism leaves something to be desired as well.

Utah_Utes_logo80. Leki Fotu, DL, Utah
Considering how big Leki Fotu is, he is explosive off the line of scrimmage. If he can develop some consistency, he could end up being a steal.

Oregon logo81. Calvin Throckmorton, OT, Oregon
It is hard to say what Calvin Throckmorton’s best fit is at the next level. He the size to play outside, but seems to lack the footwork. He could kick inside, but he would have to refine his technique there. He offers a project with lots of upside.

Georgia Logo82. Monty Rice, LB, Georgia
From an athleticism and size standpoint, Monty Rice is NFL ready. He just needs to put it all together to really capitalize on all the raw talent.

Missouri logo83. Albert Okwuegbunam, TE, Missouri
Albert Okwuegbunam was definitely underutilized at Missouri. Going from Drew Lock to Kelly Bryant at quarterback, his numbers declined a bit. His size and route running will make him more valuable at the next level.

202px-syracuse_orange_logo.svg_84. Alton Robinson, EDGE, Syracuse
After an up and down career at Syracuse, Alton Robinson feels like a bit of a boom or bust pick. He had 10 sacks in 2018, but dipped to just 4.5 in 2019. He has potential, but consistency could be his biggest weakness.

Oregon logo85. Shane Lemieux, G, Oregon
Oregon had one of the best offensive lines in the country this year. Shane Lemieux played his part well. He is a polished blocker with limited athletic upside.

Clemson Logo86. K’Von Wallace, S, Clemson
Great as a blitzer from the secondary, K’Von Wallace is a fun player for Brent Venables to use in his defense. He has enough versatility to find his way onto the field.

300px-california_golden_bears_logo.svg_87. Evan Weaver, LB, Cal
A tackling machine, Evan Weaver lead the nation in tackles this season. He obviously has a good nose for the football and produces well.

Utah_Utes_logo88. Bradlee Anae, EDGE, Utah
With good speed off the edge, Bradlee Anae looks the part of a 3-4 stand up rusher. He is not crazy athletic, but he shows good burst to make some high-impact plays.

Florida State Logo89. Hamsah Nasirildeen, S, Florida State
Hamsah Nasirildeen is a bit taller than most safeties, but lighter than most linebackers. He could be an interesting box safety type at the next level in the right defense.

250px-ucf_knights_logo.svg_90. Gabriel Davis, WR, UCF
Following a monster season, Gabriel Davis decided to leave early for the draft. He has good size and produced well this season. If he can post good times in the three-cone drill and 40-yard dash, he could push himself into the second round conversation with so many receivers returning to school.

Florida logo91. Jabari Zuniga, EDGE, Florida
Injuries limited Jabari Zuniga to just five games this season. He has shown flashes of top-end pass rushing ability, but it is hard to know if he can be reliable.

Auburn_Tigers_logo92. Marlon Davidson, DE, Auburn
Marlon Davidson is a bit of a tweaner in the sense that he could be an end in either a 4-3 or 3-4 scheme. He would probably need to bulk up a bit more in a 3-4, but still possesses the requisite strength. He has a lot to clean up technically.

Alabama Logo93. Anfernee Jennings, EDGE, Alabama
Earning his way into playing time as a block shedder, Anfernee Jennings is not an explosive athlete. He understands how to use his size and strength to reach the quarterback though.

uconn_logo194. Matthew Peart, OT, UConn
Mostly untested, Matthew Peart is starting to catch the eye of NFL scouts with his size and traits. He is fairly raw and definitely needs a few years to develop.

Auburn_Tigers_logo95. Nick Coe, DL, Auburn
Surrounded by great talent on the defensive line at Auburn, Nick Coe has stood out as a solid run stopper. He did not register a sack in 2019, but should be a solid 3-4 defensive end.

minnesotagoldengophers96. Tyler Johnson, WR, Minnesota
The community is very split on him. Tyler Johnson had a phenomenal year at Minnesota, but did not receive a Senior Bowl invite. He has displayed above average route running with good enough hands to make the jump.

Baylor logo97. Denzel Mims, WR, Baylor
A great athlete, Denzel Mims posted some monster numbers down the stretch. He benefited from playing some bad Big 12 defenses, but his size and body control should see him translate well.

iowa_wordmark98. Alaric Jackson, OT, Iowa
Not as highly touted as his teammate Tristan Wirfs, Alaric Jackson is actually the one playing left tackle at Iowa. His massive frame could make him a projectable starter down the line.

Texas_Longhorns_logo99. Devin Duvernay, WR, Texas
With his speed and savvy, Devin Duvernay became Sam Ehlinger’s favorite target this season. He can operate out of the slot, but needs to improve his route running.

Oregon logo100. Jake Hansen, OL, Oregon
As the leader of this Oregon offensive line, Jake Hansen could be another Duck joining the pro ranks. He won’t blow you away with his game, but he holds up well in protection.

2020 NFL Draft Big Board: Top 50

With October winding down, we now have eight full weeks of college football action under our belts. While the best is still yet to come, we have already seen a lot from the best college football has to offer. At the end of each month, I set about ranking my top prospects heading into the upcoming draft. There is still a long ways to go, but this acts as a barometer for how players have separated themselves through the first two months of the year. To see how much things have already changed, feel free to check out my top 25 from the end of September.

This class is stacked at receiver and has really good depth at corner and running back. The quarterback group is starting to come together, but maybe doesn’t look quite as strong as we initially thought. Without further ado, let’s dive in.

Ohio State Logo1. Chase Young, DE, Ohio State
There is a drop after the top two prospects. That is mostly because of how dominant these two players are in Jerry Jeudy and Chase Young. Young put up four sacks on Saturday vs. Wisconsin. He is simply unfair to deal with.

Alabama Logo2. Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama
Don’t overthink this one. Jerry Jeudy is a stud. He will be a top-tier receiver from his first snap in the NFL. He is even showing he can do it without Tua Tagovailoa.

Alabama Logo3. Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama
Another ankle injury to Tagovailoa is troubling, but Tua has separated himself from the rest of the QB class. There is some potential for Joe Burrow to close the gap some and we will get to see them play head-to-head in a few weeks. Cannot wait for that game.

Ohio State Logo4. Jeffrey Okudah, CB, Ohio State
There are a lot of schools who claim to be DB University. Jeff Okudah is helping Ohio State’s case. He is a great man coverage defender and does an excellent job tackling in space.

iowa_wordmark5. AJ Epenesa, EDGE, Iowa
The production has not been there this season for AJ Epenesa, but the talent still is. He is commanding a lot of attention in every game for Iowa. He has a little bit of J.J. Watt in him, which is a great thing for any prospect.

Georgia Logo6. Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia
Any team looking for a future starting left tackle will have its eye on Andrew Thomas. He is an elite pass blocker who has performed against top competition. He feels like a lock for the top 10, maybe even the top five.

Oklahoma Logo7. CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma
There might not be a better receiver after the catch in this draft than CeeDee Lamb. He is super elusive and shows great vision. He is clearly very athletic, even if he won’t blow you away with speed.

Georgia Logo8. D’Andre Swift, RB, Georgia
In the modern day NFL, running backs need to be able to catch the ball out of the backfield frequently. D’Andre Swift has proven he is more than capable. He already has 900 yards from scrimmage in seven games this season.

Clemson Logo9. Tee Higgins, WR, Clemson
This is an elite wide receiver class. Tee Higgins could very well be the top option in other draft years. He is dominant in the red zone and routinely makes big plays downfield.

Wisconsin logo10. Jonathan Taylor, RB, Wisconsin
Up until a meeting with Ohio State, Jonathan Taylor had looked unstoppable. Clearly he is mortal, but that one game should not undermine all the work he has done in his career. The workload is a concern, but he has workhorse back potential at the next level.

LSU Logo11. Grant Delpit, S, LSU
Some questionable tackling has knocked Grant Delpit down the board a little bit, but he is still a decisive playmaker. Safeties have slid in the past few years and that could happen again, but Delpit should be a Day 1 starter.

Auburn_Tigers_logo12. Derrick Brown, DL, Auburn
When you look at Derrick Brown, you might peg him as a run stopper. At 6’5″, roughly 320 pounds, that’s not a bad guess, but he also moves well as a pass rusher. Brown has three sacks this year and is handful for interior offensive linemen to deal with.

Wisconsin logo13. Tyler Biadasz, C, Wisconsin
One of the most dependable prospects in this class, Tyler Biadasz looks like a future All-Pro center. His base is so strong and he clearly has the mental traits needed to excel at the position in the NFL.

Alabama Logo14. Henry Ruggs, WR, Alabama
Nobody can run with Henry Ruggs in football. He is electric in the open field. At six feet tall, he has good size for someone with his speed. Ruggs should be a run player for any offensive coordinator to use at the next level.

Penn State logo15. Yetur Gross-Matos, DE, Penn State
Yetur Gross-Matos made some noise last year and he has followed it up with another solid campaign. His hand usage is excellent and he might just have the best motor of anyone in the nation. Super high-character guy as well.

Clemson Logo16. Isaiah Simmons, LB, Clemson
The biggest question surrounding Isaiah Simmons is what position teams see him at in the NFL. The line between safeties and linebackers is blurring more and more at the pro level. Someone will find a spot for the versatile Simmons in there defense.

LSU Logo17. Joe Burrow, QB, LSU
It wasn’t his best performance of the year, but Joe Burrow put together a gritty performance to beat Auburn. Not every game is going to be super clear cut. Burrow continues to show his ability to adapt and make plays as needed.

Clemson Logo18. Travis Etienne, RB, Clemson
Clemson is chock full of talented offensive players and rarely does Travis Etienne get his due respect. He is one of the most productive players in college football. He should be a good change of pace back right away.

colorado_buffaloes_alternate_logo19. Laviska Shenault Jr., WR, Colorado
This has been a tough season for Laviska Shenault Jr. He was dominant in 2018, but he struggled out of the gates this year. Against USC, he finally showed up with a big game. At his best, he can be a game-changing receiver with great run after the catch ability.

Alabama Logo20. Trevon Diggs, CB, Alabama
Based on size alone, Trevon Diggs was going to draw the attention of NFL scouts. It also helps he plays for ‘Bama. His 84-yard pick-six Saturday will help as well. He plays with the aggression needed to be a no. 1 corner.

1280px-boise_state_22b22_logo.svg_21. Curtis Weaver, EDGE, Boise State
For the second straight year, Curtis Weaver is one of the most disruptive players in college football. He is an excellent pass rusher with good size and the potential to play in either a 4-3 or 3-4 scheme. If he keeps racking up sacks, 9.5 already in 2019, he might not last this long.

Oregon logo22. Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon
Justin Herbert has not had the type of season most expected of him. He has flashed special arm talent, but his accuracy is a concern. Herbert has not handled pressure well either and seems like he will need a bit of seasoning before becoming a quality starter.

Florida logo23. CJ Henderson, CB, Florida
Scouts will love his frame, but CJ Henderson’s closing speed is generating first-round buzz. The biggest knock is his press coverage, but he excels in zone looks and has long arms to make critical plays downfield.

512px-oklahoma_state_university_athletics_logo_28four_colors29.svg_24. Tylan Wallace, WR, Oklahoma State
With such a great receiver class, Tylan Wallace can get overlooked, but he is a proven playmaker. He high points the ball and will burn corners off the line. He reminds me a bit of Green Bay’s Davante Adams.

South Carolina logo25. Javon Kinlaw, DL, South Carolina
Given the level of competition Javon Kinlaw is facing, he has earned first-round consideration. He has been a great interior pass rusher for South Carolina. Kinlaw regularly faces double teams and loves to compete.

Alabama Logo26. Alex Leatherwood, OT, Alabama
At 6’6″, 310 pounds, Alex Leatherwood is built like a prototypical NFL left tackle. Leatherwood spent all of 2018 at right guard, but has looked very comfortable at left tackle this season. He isn’t the blindside blocker because Tua Tagovailoa is a lefty, but he should be a first rounder.

Stanford Cardinal27. Walker Little, OT, Stanford
This offensive line class took a hit when Walker Little went down in Stanford’s season opener. He moves well in space and has shown a tendency to finish blocks in the run game. Little projects as a future left tackle in the pros.

iowa_wordmark28. Triston Wirfs, OG, Iowa
After watching Triston Wirfs this year, I don’t see how he can play outside in the NFL. He looks incredible in the run game, but he does not move well enough to be a tackle at the next level. If he kicks inside, I think he could have a good career.

Georgia Logo29. Jake Fromm, QB, Georgia
Georgia’s offense has ground to a halt in recent weeks and Jake Fromm deserves some blame for that. He doesn’t have the same type of arm talent to make up for some mental mistakes or missed throws as the other top QBs in this draft.

LSU Logo30. Kristian Fulton, DB, LSU
If you ask me, the real DB University is in Baton Rouge and Kristian Fulton seems set to join the ranks of quality defensive backs joining the NFL. He is athletic and unafraid. The one thing is he likely the third-best player in LSU’s secondary this year, so it is hard to tell how he will fair as the top option at the next level.

Stanford Cardinal31. Paulson Adebo, CB, Stanford
Teams around the Pac-12 have already realized it’s best not to throw at Paulson Adebo. He has eight interceptions over the past two years and the size to deal with taller receivers. If he runs well at the combine, he could go top 20.

Alabama Logo32. Terrell Lewis, EDGE, Alabama
Another player coming off a major injury, Terrell Lewis has put up good numbers this year in his return. He is tops in the SEC in sacks and tackles for loss.

Notre Dame Logo33. Julian Okwara, EDGE, Notre Dame
He can disappear at times, but Julian Okwara can explode for big games on any given day. He has good power and will bully smaller offensive linemen. If he can find some consistency, he should rise up draft boards.

LSU Logo34. K’Lavon Chaisson, EDGE, LSU
I was disappointed with K’Lavon Chaisson early on this season, but I think I might have been too harsh on him coming off a torn ACL. He has shown the ability to be more than just a pass rusher. He is a bit small, but he has great speed.

Alabama Logo35. Xavier McKinney, S, Alabama
With teams looking for versatility in defensive backs, Xaiver McKinney should make a good impression at the NFL level. He is a good tackler who has shown flashes of an ability to hold up in coverage.

Alabama Logo36. Dylan Moses, LB, Alabama
This was a lost season for Dylan Moses after tearing his ACL in camp. Given the injury, he could return to school for another season, but if he comes out and passes medicals, he has shown enough to go fairly early.

250px-tcu_horned_frogs_logo.svg_37. Jalen Reagor, WR, TCU
If you don’t find a way to bottle him up, Jalen Reagor will burn you. He has had a much quieter 2019, but his speed is for real. With a great receiver class to compete with, he is sliding a bit.

Washington Huskies logo38. Jacob Eason, QB, Washington
Without question, Jacob Eason has an NFL caliber arm. He has not shown the decision making or poise to match that. He has been a bit up and down this season, far too inconsistent for me to think he should be a first rounder. Someone will still probably reach for him.

Oklahoma Logo39. Kenneth Murray, LB, Oklahoma
Outside of a rough game from the entire Oklahoma defense Saturday against Kansas State, Kenneth Murray has had a great year. He already has 55 tackles this year, including 7.5 for loss. Murray has a nose for the ball and the athleticism to get there.

250px-tcu_horned_frogs_logo.svg_40. Lucas Niang, OT, TCU
Projecting as a right tackle, Lucas Niang saw his season end early. He will undergo season-ending surgery to repair a torn hip labrum. Niang made the decision to get the surgery now with hopes of being able to participate in the combine.

Michigan State logo41. Kenny Willekes, DE, Michigan State
As a redshirt senior, Kenney Willekes is one of the elder statesmen of this draft class. He is a great run stopper who simply doesn’t have as much talent around him this year. He has not shown the ability to wreck a game by himself, but he will be a useful piece in any defense.

Ohio State Logo42. J.K. Dobbins, RB, Ohio State
Already up to fourth in Buckeyes history in rushing, J.K. Dobbins is on track to pass Eddie George and Ezekiel Elliott before the season is over. That is some great company and after ripping apart the Wisconsin defense, he has earned it.

Utah_Utes_logo43. Jaylon Johnson, DB, Utah
Utah often gets overlooked and so do there best players. Jaylon Johnson does not get much national press, but he is one of the top corners in this draft. He plays with the mentality of a lockdown corner and could very well develop into a good one.

Oregon logo44. Troy Dye, LB, Oregon
He might be on the shelf right now with a thumb injury, but Troy Dye has made a case for being one of the better linebackers in the nation. He has led Oregon in tackles for three straight years. The injury will probably keep him from doing it again, but he is a fundamentally sound prospect.

Oklahoma Logo45. Creed Humphrey, G, Oklahoma
As the lone returning starter along the Oklahoma offensive line, Creed Humphrey has been crucial to the Sooners’ success this season. He is a rock solid interior line prospect who could challenge for a starting spot as soon as he arrives in camp.

Alabama Logo46. Raekwon Davis, DL, Alabama
I don’t know that there is a larger presence, literally, in college football this year than Raekwon Davis. Alabama lists him at 6’7″, 312 pounds. He draws a lot of attention from opposing defenses as soon as he steps on the field. Davis hasn’t been as dominant this year, but his physical tools keep him as a top 50 prospect.

LSU Logo47. Justin Jefferson, WR, LSU
In the midst of a breakout season, Justin Jefferson is flying up draft boards. He might not be the best receiver on his own team, but Jefferson has blossomed in this new-look LSU offense. He can separate from defenders and makes some touch catches.

Ohio State Logo48. Malik Harrison, LB, Ohio State
Ohio State’s defense is stacked with playmakers, but Malik Harrison has still found a way to stand out. He has 9.5 tackles for loss this year and seems to just fly around the field. It’s tough to tell if he is a product of the system or truly an elite prospect though.

200px-illinois_fighting_illini_logo.svg_49. Oluwole Betiku Jr., EDGE, Illinois
One of my favorite players in this draft, Oluwole Betiku Jr. has shown up in a big way in 2019. He is still incredibly raw, but with 11.5 tackles for loss and eight sacks, he is showing a knack for causing trouble. In a year or two, he has the potential to rack up double-digit sacks in the NFL.

512px-oklahoma_state_university_athletics_logo_28four_colors29.svg_50. Chuba Hubbard, RB, Oklahoma State
If you didn’t already know, Chuba Hubbard leads college football in rushing yards this season. He has been a bellcow for Oklahoma State. If he can show some signs of being a reliable receiver down the stretch, he could start drawing some first round attention.

2020 NFL Draft Big Board: Top 25

  1. Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama
    You could argue this should be Chase Young, but Jerry Jeudy is about as slam dunk of a pick as it gets. He has the physical tools to play like Odell Beckham Jr. There is some aspect of his game that reminds me of Marvin Harrison. He plays faster than his raw speed will indicate and demonstrates incredible route-running ability. I don’t expect him to go first overall because of the position value, but he is the best pro prospect in this draft.
  2. Chase Young, DE, Ohio State
    I can almost guarantee you Jeudy and Chase Young will be the top two prospects all the way through the draft. Unlike Jeudy, there is some possibility Young goes first overall based on his positional value. He is an excellent pass rusher, but he also does a nice job against the run. He excels at setting the edge and checks every box when it comes to physical skill. I’ve seen comparisons to Von Miller, and that is probably not far off.
  3. Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama
    He is not going to be for everyone. Much like Kyler Murray a year ago, Tua Tagovailoa lacks the size of the prototypical NFL quarterback. However, his poise, touch and accuracy make him an NFL-ready passer who has athletic upside. He won’t be Patrick Mahomes, launching the ball 50-plus yards down field or firing in bullet passes, but he can run an offense efficiently and effectively. The thing to like most about him? Eight interceptions in 580 career passes so far. His decision making is impeccable and possibly even the best in the class.
  4. A.J. Epenesa, EDGE, Iowa
    Despite not being a traditional college football power, Iowa produces NFL-ready talent every season. A.J. Epenesa is no exception. He has gotten off to a slower start this year, but he fits the mold of a great NFL defensive lineman. He is not an elite athlete, but Epenesa has good power and discipline. He uses his hands well to keep offensive linemen from locking him up. He forces a ton of fumbles as well. He needs to pick up the production though this year.
  5. D’Andre Swift, RB, Georgia
    He might not be as prolific at the college level as some of the other backs in this class, but he is the polished and versatile. DeAndre Swift is a complete back with good hands, above average vision and tons of college production. He spent the last two seasons splitting time with Nick Chubb, Sony Michel and Elijah Holyfield. Now, he gets the chance to be the feature back and he has taken it well. He is more elusive than fast, but he has enough speed to break off big plays. Swift features heavily in the passing game and does not have a ton of mileage on his legs either after splitting time throughout his college career.
  6. Jeffrey Okudah, CB, Ohio State
    The more I watch Jeffrey Okudah, the more impressed I am by his skill. He just looks so natural as a lockdown corner. He is a great tackler in space and excels in bump-and-run coverage. Okudah will sometimes end up running the route for the receiver because his hips are so fluid and he has great eye discipline. He can be a little aggressive at times, which makes him susceptible to double moves, but he seems to have enough relative speed to make up for it in most cases. If he runs well at the combine, we could be talking about a top-five pick.
  7. Jake Fromm, QB, Georgia
    I know I am definitely higher on him than a lot of other people, but I have been really impressed with Jake Fromm. He goes up against great competition all the time and does an excellent job leading his team. He is a field general who commands the offense, he has NFL-caliber arm strength and he seems to be improving his accuracy. He might not be as flashy as some of the other quarterbacks in this class, but he feels like a rock solid prospect with a long pro career ahead of him.
  8. Tee Higgins, WR, Clemson
    Jerry Jeudy is head and shoulders above everyone else in this class, and it is a very good receiver class. Tee Higgins is the best of the rest. He has an incredible catch radius, very reliable hands and runs his routes well. In my opinion, he has saved Trevor Lawrence’s rocky start from going completely off the rails. Higgins regularly wins jump balls and adjusts to make catches. The biggest knock is the lack of speed, but he feels a lot like fellow former Clemson receiver Mike Williams, just without the injury history.
  9. Grant Delpit, S, LSU
    If you are looking for the next great LSU defensive back, Grant Delpit is it. He is cut from the same cloth as Jamaal Adams, but excels more down field than in the opponents backfield. He is excellent at diagnosing plays and shows great closing speed. Deplit looks very comfortable in coverage as well. The concern that keeps cropping up on film is his tackling. He arrives at the right place at the right time, but doesn’t always complete the play. Tackling isn’t the most important skill needed as a versatile safety, but one he will need to work on to be worth a top-10 pick.
  10. CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma
    Had CeeDee Lamb come out last year, he probably would have been the top receiver off the board, ahead of teammate Marquis Brown. Instead, he comes out in a great receiver class and drops to WR3, which is impressive, because he is still the 10th player on my board. He runs really well and is not afraid to go across the middle. He shows excellent ability to make big plays after the catch and fights for extra yardage. He is not as dominant as Tee Higgins in the red zone, but he is much better at creating separation and giving a quarterback a nice window to hit.
  11. Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia
    Now in his third year of facing future NFL talent playing in the SEC, Andrew Thomas is finally draft eligible and should be the first offensive lineman off the board. He is an excellent pass blocker with solid footwork. He does not get bullied too often and knows how to handle speed rushers. He is not one of those road grading linemen in the running game, but he understands how to seal the block to create a running lane. He has already faced Julian Okwara this year and fared well. He will get plenty more chances to show why he is the top tackle prospect this year.
  12. Jonathan Taylor, RB, Wisconsin
    There is not a more accomplished running back through his first two years in college football history than Jonathan Taylor. He has been a bellcow at Wisconsin posting over 2,000 yards from scrimmage each of the past two seasons. After signs early in his career that fumbling would be an issue, he has worked to cut down on them. Already this season, Taylor is showing his development as a receiver, with more catches through four games than he had in either of his previous two seasons. One major concern is the number of touches he has had in his college career. Durability has never been an issue, but he already has 690 carries in his college career. That starts to take a toll eventually.
  13. Derrick Brown, DL, Auburn
    Derrick Brown is an athletic space-eater. He uses his hands well to attack offensive linemen and also disrupt passing lanes for opposing quarterbacks. Brown is surrounded by other future NFL talent on the Auburn defensive line, but he stands out as the best of them. He won’t be the type of pass rusher we’ve seen Aaron Donald turn into, but he can collapse a pocket very quickly with his interior pressure. He isn’t very agile or quick, playing as more of a nose tackle type, but he has enough speed to chase down the quarterback.
  14. Travis Etienne, RB, Clemson
    I know I made this comment about CeeDee Lamb, but in another draft, Travis Etienne would probably be the first player at his position to come off the board. He is an incredibly elusive runner who does a good job of keeping his legs churning for extra yards. He has game-breaking speed and can stop on a dime to make a defender miss. He also contributes consistently in the passing game, as he already has 10 catches this season. He finished seventh in the Heisman voting last year, which just goes to show the value he has for that Clemson team.
  15. Yetur Gross-Matos, DE, Penn State
    If there is someone in this class that could work their way into the top 10 with an impressive combine, that is Yetur Gross-Matos in my mind. He has shown great ability as a pass rusher over the past two years at Penn State. Gross-Matos has heavy hands that allow him to fight through blocks and turn linemen to close down openings. He is disruptive in the run game as well, shooting into the backfield to blow up plays. I expect him to work best as a down lineman in a 4-3 defense. If he can find a way to reach double-digit sacks this season, he could hear his name called very early come April.
  16. Laviska Sheault Jr., WR, Colorado
    Heading into the season, I had very high expectations for Laviska Shenault Jr. He hasn’t quite lived up to them yet, but his raw talent should see him go in the first round regardless. He excels at beating receivers off the line and making plays downfield, which is impressive for a 6’2″, 220-pound receiver. He is almost like a running back after the catch, showing good vision and power with the ball in his hands. Colorado likes to use him as a wildcat quarterback sometimes, just to get the ball in his hands. He has had some minor injuries that have kept him off the field at times this year, but his tape is very impressive.
  17. Walker Little, OT, Stanford
    Heading into the year, Walker Little was an exciting prospect who had to answer a couple questions about technique and agility. He never really got a chance to, suffering a season-ending knee injury in the season opener against Northwestern. Little has some solid tape from a year ago and has a massive frame that projects well to the next level. He is not as polished as Andrew Thomas, but he has a lot of upside. On the bright side for Little, the injury happened so early in the year that he may be able to do some drills by the time the combine rolls around to sure up his draft stock.
  18. Henry Ruggs, WR, Alabama
    Henry Ruggs might be the best playmaker in all of college football. He is electric with the ball in his hands and there is already buzz about him potentially running a sub 4.3 40-yard dash at the combine. He can get lost in the shuffle with so many great receivers playing alongside him at Alabama, but he is who the Tide turns to when they need a big play. His hands are fine and there is definitely some injury concern with him. His status is up in the air for Bama’s next game against Texas A&M after suffering a leg injury. Creating separation won’t be a problem for Ruggs who could be a fine toy for offensive coordinators to deploy.
  19. Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon
    When it comes to Justin Herbert, the arm talent is there, but the more I watch him, the less sure I am about the rest of his game. He seems to fade a bit when Oregon faces top-tier opponents and has some small technical things he needs to clean up that affect his accuracy. While he probably has better physical tools than Tua Tagovailoa or Jake Fromm, he is not there on the mental side of things. He will need a bit of work before he is ready to be a starter in the NFL. With the right coaching though, he could be a Pro Bowl passer one day.
  20. Tyler Biadasz, C, Wisconsin
    Wisconsin, much like Iowa, does an excellent job of producing players ready to make the jump to the next level. Tyler Biadasz is definitely the top interior line prospect at the point in the draft process. He gets off the line well and does a really nice job finishing blocks. He has the power to run over smaller lineman and almost never gets pushed back thanks to a strong base and good technique.
  21. Tristan Wirfs, OT, Iowa
    I did say Iowa does a good job of producing NFL talent right? Tristan Wrifs is looking like one of the top tackle prospects in the upcoming draft, with a big frame and lots of experience playing in the Big 10. What holds him back from being higher up on this list is he plays right tackle instead of left. Now, Wirfs does have the size to slide over, but he is better as a run blocker than as a pass blocke and one of the biggest knocks has been his foot speed. He has the potential to be a plug and play type pick on the right side for a team looking for line help.
  22. Isaiah Simmons, LB, Clemson
    As a converted safety, Isaiah Simmons is better in coverage than your average outside linebacker. He is fast and a good tackler in space. He shows a good ability to wreck havoc in the backfield as well either as a blitzing pass rusher or against the run. As the tight end position continues to evolve, the need for teams to find players capable of covering them. Simmons should be able to do that and then some.
  23. CJ Henderson, CB, Florida
    And here starts the run on cornerbacks. I will admit I haven’t really made a full determination on the order of these next three players. It feels very close to me between them all. CJ Henderson has had moments of brilliance at Florida, but has battled through injuries this year. He has good size for an NFL corner. I want to see him on the field later this year matching up with the top talent to see if he can prove his worth.
  24. Kristian Fulton, DB, LSU
    Much of what I said about Henderson applies to Kristian Fulton as well. He has faced great competition and shown flashes of potential. He thankfully hasn’t had the same injuries has Henderson, but I still want to see him prove himself late in the year.
  25. Bryce Hall, CB, Virginia
    Teams have already picked up on the fact that throwing at Bryce Hall is a bad idea. He headlines an impressive Virginia defense fresh off a solid showing against Notre Dame. The secondary held Ian Book to just 165 yards passing and played better than that scoreline would indicate. With good size and speed, Hall has the physical tools to make an early impact at the next level.
