Thoughts and comments:

  • I have yet to take a deep dive into the quarterback position. As you can see, Trey Lance, Zach Wilson and Justin Fields are still clustered. This will change as I gain more clarity and finish their reports. Lance is my early runner-up based on work conducted over the summer. He’s a polished decision-maker with terrific arm talent, athleticism and roofless potential.
  • There’s a real battle between Jaycee Horn and Patrick Surtain II for CB1, in my books. In the end, Surtain’s production and resume on college football’s biggest stage might get him drafted first. But Jaycee Horn has legitimate tools to make him the top man-to-man cornerback in the Draft when it’s all said and done. He’s long with terrific movement skills to mirror agile route runners. His physicality and technique at the line of scrimmage are top-notch, and his ball skills are highly underrated.
  • With 11 players in my top 50, I love the potential of the offensive line class. Penei Sewell is the cream of the crop, but there’s offensive line talent in every round of the draft this year. And a lot of these prospects offer guard-tackle versatility (Sewell, Rashawn Slater, Alijah Vera-Tucker, Jalen Mayfield, Teven Jenkins, etc.).
  • I’ll name drop some offensive line sleepers not included in this top 50 that have caught my eyes so far, notably during Senior Bowl week – Quinn Meinerz, D’Ante Smith, Jaylon Moore, James Hudson
