It’s Draft Time!

Over the last few months, I’ve been watching a lot of tape on the 2017 prospects and I’ve come up with my top 50 players in the draft class.

I’ve based this decision solely on watching the footage of the players. The rankings don’t take into account injuries or potential character issues, they are purely based on the on-field performances of the players and how I see their skill sets translating into the NFL, although combine measurables have also played a part in the final grading too.

It’s important to note that this is not the order I think the prospects will be drafted in, it is purely a ranking based on grades.

Over the coming weeks, the RAF writing team will profile each of these 50 players
