A few surprises in this range, including Oklahoma center Creed Humphrey and North Carolina running back Javonte Williams. Both are widely seen as second-round prospects, but I have them as the second-best players at their respective positions (iOL and RB).
Humphrey isn’t an elite run-blocker, but his experience and refinement in pass protection mean that he should be, at least, a rock-solid starter for some team. As for Williams, he has all the makings of a three-down runner at the next level.
Elijah Moore’s slot/outside versatility helps him climb up my board and two other receivers, Rashod Bateman and Kadarius Toney, also make an appearance. Five of the top-30 players on my board are wide receivers.
Trevon Moehrig is my top safety coming in at No. 28. His range and coverage ability help him stand out in a poor safety class.
Caleb Farley’s upside is evident, but his medicals are a serious concern. Without access to his medical records, I have to push him down the board. Plus, on the field, I don’t think he’s as slam-dunk of a prospect as someone like Jaelan Phillips.
