A couple of notes to explain a bit about my ranking choices right now.
I am assuming that things go well for athletes rehabbing serious injuries (ala JAYLON SMITH) or facing character issues (ala NKEMDICHE). Clearly that will not be the case for all players, therefore some guys may drop a long way down my list after the Combine.
I will be watching Combine numbers more closely than ever this year. In many cases very little separates the potential of player No. 36 from player No. 50. So little things mean a lot.
The 2016 Draft Class has good depth in my opinion, but the number of elite prospects is highly questionable. This group of players should be better than 2013, but not as good, or deep, as the 2 most recent Draft Classes.
Please, also remember that my list differs from that of Editor Colin Lindsay, in that he incorporates what he is hearing from teams and sources around the League, whereas I am basing my rankings almost exclusively on what I have seen of these players in action with my own eyes only.
