With the NFL scouting combine (Feb. 23-29) fast approaching, let's take a look at the players who have moved up and down our Top 32, drawing on the same scouting reports and making changes only where necessary.
We'll continue to update our board as we get closer to the 2016 NFL draft. Although it's a given that some players will move into the rankings while others drop out, this provides a good snapshot of which players currently have the most NFL potential, based on our evaluations. For our full rankings list, check out this link.
(Underclassmen are noted with an asterisk.)
1. Joey Bosa, DE, Ohio State*
No change here. From start to finish, Bosa left his mark in Columbus with 50.5 tackles for loss in 41 career games. He shows a consistent ability to convert speed to power and keep offensive linemen off-balance with a wide array of pass-rush moves. He's a dynamic talent wherever you put him along the D-line.
2. Jalen Ramsey, CB, Florida State*
NFL teams will love Ramsey's versatility. He can line up against a slot receiver one play and patrol center field the next. A star on FSU's track and field team, Ramsey brings a unique athletic skill set to the table. He'll turn heads in Indy.
3. Laremy Tunsil, OT, Mississippi*
The best left tackle prospect in the draft, Tunsil is an exceptional athlete for a 310-pounder. He is quick to redirect and mirror top pass-rushers, and he has great range as a run-blocker. Because of his mobility, he would fit best in a zone blocking-heavy scheme.
4. Vernon Hargreaves III, CB, Florida*
Hargreaves does a good job in press-man coverage by consistently redirecting wide receivers. He's a little undersized (5-foot-11, 195 pounds), but with four interceptions this season, Hargreaves showed he has the instincts and aggressiveness to develop into a good starting cornerback in the NFL.
