Kiper Jr., McShay analyze Alabama's draft prospects (2:26)

ESPN NFL draft insiders Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay break down Alabama's draft prospects and how likely they are to have success playing in the NFL. (2:26)

Here, we'll look at which players have moved up and down our Top 32, drawing on the same scouting reports as before and making changes only where necessary.

We'll continue to update our board as we get closer to the 2016 NFL draft. While it's a given that some players will move into the rankings while others will drop out, this provides a good snapshot of which players currently have the most NFL potential based on our evaluations.

(Underclassmen are noted with an asterisk.)


1. Joey Bosa, DE, Ohio State Buckeyes*

He's been the top player on my board all season, and there's no reason to change that now. From start to finish, Bosa left his mark in Columbus, with 50.5 tackles for loss in 41 career games. Bosa shows a consistent ability to convert speed to power and keeps offensive linemen off balance with a wide array of pass-rush moves -- swim, rip, club, spin. He's shown the ability to play all over the place (both DE positions and DT), so Bosa brings a lot of scheme versatility to the table.

2. Jalen Ramsey, CB, Florida State Seminoles*

Ramsey finished the season leading Florida State with 10 pass breakups, four more than his next-closest teammate. NFL teams will love his versatility -- he frequently lines up over the slot, but he's also capable of playing center field. A star on FSU's track-and-field team, Ramsey brings a unique athletic skill set to the table.

3. Vernon Hargreaves III, CB, Florida Gators*

With four interceptions on the season, Hargreaves continues to show he has the instincts and aggressiveness to develop into a good outside starting cornerback in the NFL. His showing against Ole Miss' Laquon Treadwell (No. 14 on this list) was particularly impressive, as Hargreaves allowed just 42 yards, Treadwell's second-lowest output this season. Hargreaves does a good job in press-man coverage, consistently redirecting wide receivers.
