Time for another edition of my position rankings for the 2017 NFL draft. With the Jan. 16 deadline looming for underclassmen to declare for the NFL draft, some of the prospects in my Big Board and on my position rankings are still undecided. I'm leaving them in for now until they make their decisions one way or the other.
One asterisk denotes a junior, and two asterisks denote a redshirt sophomore for the 2016 season.
1. *Mitch Trubisky, North Carolina
2. **DeShone Kizer, Notre Dame
3. *Deshaun Watson, Clemson
4. *Patrick Mahomes, Texas Tech
5. *Brad Kaaya, Miami (Fla.)
6.*Jerod Evans, Virginia Tech
7. Nathan Peterman, Pittsburgh
8. Chad Kelly, Mississippi
9. C.J. Beathard, Iowa
10. Antonio Pipkin, Tiffin
Underclassmen dominate this list. Watson (6-foot-2, 210 pounds) was spectacular in the second half of the national title game, but I think he's a Day 2 pick.
