New Years Top Prospects by Position

By | January 3, 2015

The Bowls are just about wrapped up and we’re two weeks from the NFL deadline for Underclassmen to declare for the 2015 Draft. So in that spirit I will reveal the New Year’s Prospect ranking by position, as I see it. The next real change will come shortly after the 15th when we know which underclassmen are really in or out of the Draft process. I would also note that the rankings on this are based on my grades and may vary from those in overall GBN positional rankings and Big Board which are compiled primarily based on info from our contacts around the scouting community.
