The college football season is now three weeks old, and the 2020 NFL draft class is just starting to take shape. Obviously a lot will change between now and when the first name is called in Las Vegas next April, but you can still get a good feel for who the best NFL prospects are at this point in the process.
Here is my evaluation of the top 32 players for 2020, updated from my Aug. 14 edition. Rankings will continue to be updated consistently throughout the college football slate and right into draft season.
Note: Underclassmen are marked with an asterisk, and grades are from Scouts Inc.
1. Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama*
Height: 6-1 | Weight: 218 | Grade: 94
Simply put, Tagovailoa is a special talent. The lefty has elite accuracy at all three levels, displaying a smooth delivery, solid arm strength and excellent touch. His anticipation and fast eyes are high-end, and he does have some twitch to him. Durability is a bit of a concern, but he's still my top prospect at this point in the process. Tagovailoa already has 1,007 passing yards and 12 touchdowns through the air this season -- and he has yet to throw an interception. His 95.5 Total QBR is second in the nation to Oklahoma's Jalen Hurts.
2. Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama*
Height: 6-1 | Weight: 192 | Grade: 92
Jeudy is a really fun prospect to watch. He's a truly polished route runner with soft hands, and he does an excellent job tracking the deep ball. Though he might not have elite size and strength, Jeudy should be an immediate impact player in the NFL. Consider that he already has 24 catches for 308 yards (tied for 14th in the country) and four touchdowns (tied for seventh) in just three games.
3. Grant Delpit, S, LSU*
Height: 6-3 | Weight: 203 | Grade: 91
