Notes:

- The DE/OLB ‘tweeners’ were once again left off. To at least name a couple: Jamie Collins is a potential fit; his name has picked up some steam after the combine. Brandon Jenkins is a notable name that’s been forgotten from this group because of injury, and Michael Buchanan was a pretty good DE for the Illini who I think projects as a 3-4 OLB.

- Once again, injury and character concerns (if there are any) were essentially ignored.

- I am hardly confident in ranking TEs, as I simply have not seen a good number of them. However, later round TE/H-backs that caught my eye include Mychal Rivera, Kyle Juszczyk, and Chris Gragg.

- David Amerson and T.J. McDonald are intentionally absent from the CB and Safety rankings, respectively. Amerson looks to me like he should move to safety and McDonald like he should move to nickel linebacker. Although they are both solid prospects, I opted to leave them out of the rankings entirely.

- Any questions or comments are encouraged. Feel free to tell me how hilariously wrong I am and why.
