Gil Brandt updates top 100 … For those that haven’t seen it yet, long-time NFL draft guru Gil Brandt of NFL.com has updated his latest top 100 list of prospects for the 2021 draft. No real surprises at the top of Brandt’s board, although BYU QB Zach Wilson only sits 5th behind the usual top 5 suspects: Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence, Oregon OT Penei Sewell, Florida TE Kyle Pitts and LSU WR Ja’Marr Chase. Little bit of a surprise, though, that Southern Cal G/T Alijah Vera-Tucker comes in at #6. its probably also something of a surprise that Miami DE Jaelan Phillips is the top edge rusher at #11, while North Dakota State QB Trey Lance, and CBs Patrick Surtain of Alabama and Virginia Tech’s Caleb Farley are a little lower than usual at #s 13 thru 15. Brandt also sees big moves up by Tulsa LB Taven Collins and Oklahoma State OT Teven Jenkins who are up to #s 20 and 21 respectively, while Kentucky CB Kelvin Joseph is up to 27th. On the other hand, Greg Rousseau, the other Miami DE is down to #22.
