This is the first look at my positional rankings since the draft class has been officially set. With all underclassmen now either in or out, you can view the rankings below with the full knowledge that all players will be drafted, or will be fighting to make an NFL roster as an undrafted free agent.
Remember: Prospects are listed under my projected NFL position, and that can be a little tough with some of the more versatile players, even before you get into schemes. A college tackle could be listed at guard, a college defensive end listed at linebacker, and so on.
* Denotes junior
** Denotes third-year sophomore
1. **Jameis Winston, Florida St.
2. *Marcus Mariota, Oregon
3. *Brett Hundley, UCLA
4. Bryce Petty, Baylor
5. Garrett Grayson, Colorado St.
6. Sean Mannion, Oregon St.
7. Shane Carden, East Carolina
8. Bryan Bennett, Southeastern Louisiana
9. Cody Fajardo, Nevada
10. Rakeem Cato, Marshall
Several notable changes here from the last time you saw this ranking. For one, both Connor Cook (Michigan State) and Cody Kessler (USC) are staying in school, which opens a pair of slots. I moved Winston back ahead of Mariota (more on that on the Big Board). Lastly, Fajardo and Cato are back in the rankings. As for an overall impression: This isn't a very good class. No way around it.
