The NFL Draft is now edging ever closer, and we at Read American Football have a treat for you!

Since the Super Bowl, I have spent a ridiculous amount of time watching the draft tape of over 300 prospects, in order to try and broaden my knowledge, and make myself a draft expert.

This list doesn’t take into account injury problems, but any knocks on certain players such as lack of effort, or poor competition, have been taken into account.

The main method for deciding this order was simply watching tape, but through reading other analysis, and looking at certain analytics, players have gradually moved up and down on my board.

It is important to note that this is not a mock draft, this is simply my ranking of the top 50 prospects available in the draft this year.

Individual draft profiles will be written as we draw ever closer to draft day, and you can use this list as a way to navigate to all of them!
