In addition, this year the draft will be quarterback heavy with potentially 4 signal callers in the top 10. Even though the NFL Draft is really just a big guessing game, we thought that we should at least name the top NFL prospects.
Saquon Barkley, RB for Penn State
Barkley is considered a top 5 pick because he is a tremendous receiver on to of being one of the best running back in the country. In addition, Barkley caught 54 passes for 632 yards in addition to returning 2 kickoffs for touchdowns in 2017.
Most sportsbook pay per head reviews believe that he will be picked up by the Browns as their No. 1 or No. 4 pick.
Denzel Ward, CB for Ohio State
At 5’10”, Ward may be one of the smaller players currently in the NFL Draft thus year but we have high hopes for him. This is because he does not allow easy throws. In fact, in 2017 the defender only allowed 223 receiving yards on 53 targets.
Tremaine Edmunds, LB for Virginia Tech
Edmunds is one of the youngest players in the NFL Draft this year because he will turn 20 in May. This teenager has been wreaking havoc in the ACC with 32.5 stops with 10 sacks in 2016 and 2017. In addition, the 6’5” and 250 pound LB delivered 100 tackles for Virginia Tech.
