The 2020 college football season has set up a bit different than normal years, but every Power 5 conference is finally in play in early November. And we've seen enough football to start to get an idea of the top prospects in the 2021 NFL draft class. I have five quarterbacks breaking into my top 32 ranking, including a pair of big risers, and four wide receivers make my top 10. But remember, we have a lot of work still to do on this class with five-plus months until the clock starts on the first pick of the draft.

1. Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson*
HT: 6-foot-6 | WT: 220 | Grade: 97
Lawrence is the best quarterback prospect I've seen come out of college since Andrew Luck was drafted by the Colts in 2012. Lawrence's intangibles are high-end, and I love his huge arm and the mobility he brings at his size. He'll need a little refining with his pocket presence, and his footwork is still progressing, but this kid is the real deal. He is currently out for Clemson as he recovers from COVID-19, but the junior has already amassed 17 passing touchdowns, 1,833 yards through the air and a 70.7% completion percentage while throwing only two interceptions in six games this season, all wins. He also has another four scores on the ground.
2. Justin Fields, QB, Ohio State*
HT: 6-3 | WT: 228 | Grade: 93
