2018 Draft: Quick Hits & Top 25

Five months ahead of the Draft, here is how we stack them

– This QB class and how I’m ranking them is a very fluid situation. I think it’s as talented and deep of a class we have seen in many years. I’m still very high on Luke Falk but I think Rosen is the clear number one at the moment with Mason Rudolph and Baker Mayfield as my highest risers so far into the season.

– This class is very thin at the top in terms of wide receivers. Although I do like what many guys like Calvin Ridley, Deon Cain, Courtland Sutton, Christian Kirk, etc. bring to the table, I’m just not sure any of these guys are clear number ones at the NFL level.

– Denzel Ward is my number one player at the moment and I know I’m one of the few, if not the only person to have him in that spot but it’s simple for me. His football IQ is on another level for me when I watch his tape. I don’t think he has the raw speed of a Marshon Lattimore who we saw at Ohio State last year and is having immediate success in the NFL but his route mirroring and playing of the football is right up there with guys of a Lattimore breed.

– Lastly we all labeled this class as the year of the QB and it very well may likely still be that but the running back depth is there as it has been in the previous few drafts and I really the depth in the defensive lineman especially on the interior.
