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.

The Buckeyes couldn't have asked for much more from Bosa this season. He leads the team with 12.0 tackles for loss (including 9.5 in five conference games) and 11 QB hits. He just always seems to be around the ball or in the backfield, as evidenced by his 46.5 TFLs in 35 career games at Ohio State. Bosa shows a consistent ability to convert speed to power and uses a wide array of pass-rush moves -- swim, rip, club, spin. With experience playing DE on both sides and moving inside to DT on obvious pass downs, Bosa brings a lot of scheme versatility to the table.
Nkemdiche has played just one full game in the past month. He left the Rebels' upset loss to Memphis with a concussion, sat out the following week vs. Texas A&M and got ejected from last week's defeat against Arkansas. Nkemdiche's best performance all season came in Ole Miss' biggest game -- on the road at Alabama. He practically lived in the backfield on his way to racking up 2.5 TFLs and leading the Rebels to an upset victory. What makes Nkemdiche special is that he has outstanding quickness for his size (6-4, 296 pounds) and is versatile enough to play 3-technique or left defensive end in a 4-3 or 5-technique in a 3-4.
A star on FSU's track-and-field team, Ramsey pops off the screen because of his unique skill set. He plays as a hybrid safety/corner role in Florida State's scheme, frequently lining up over the slot. Ramsey is fast enough to play in center field or the slot and savvy enough to be a force against the run. He helped keep the Seminoles' game against Clemson tight until the fourth quarter, registering one sack and a pass breakup.
