Mock drafts are fickle and oftentimes — much like an NCAA March Madness bracket — they are busted within the first hour. That’s why I put more stock into the Big Board.

I have scouted over 300 players in preparation for this draft and picked 200 for my final Big Board. Below you will find my thoughts on the Top 50, along with 150 other prospects ranked from best to worst.

*all pro day numbers listed are unofficial*

1. QB Trevor Lawrence (Clemson)

(Joshua S. Kelly/USA TODAY Sports)

A generational prospect garnering similar attention to what Andrew Luck & John Elway received coming into the league; it’s no surprise to see Trevor Lawrence sat atop this board. With prototypical size (6’6, 213 pounds), loads of experience, and an arm of gold… the Jacksonville Jaguars are ready to give him the franchise.

2. TE Kyle Pitts (Florida)

If it wasn’t for the best quarterback prospect of the last decade, Kyle Pitts would lay claim to being the best player in the 2021 NFL Draft. Pitts is the rare prospect who transcends his position and is often compared to the likes of Quenton Nelson in that regard. Many thought the Colts were crazy for selecting a guard in the top six, however I can assure you there isn’t a single Colts fan that is upset with the results. Likewise, teams should draft Pitts and disregard the two letters beside his name. You may never see another prospect in your lifetime that is as sure of a thing as Kyle Pitts.

3. OT Penei Sewell (Oregon)

After opting out of the 2020 college football season due to COVID-19, it might be easy to forget how dominate Sewell was the last time he played. Even in a loaded class in 2020, many evaluators tabbed him as a first round prospect if he had been eligible. Penei will not be 21 years old until midway through the upcoming NFL season, which means he is nowhere near his ceiling yet. A team will get a day one starting tackle with all-pro potential early in his career.

4. WR Ja’Marr Chase (LSU)

(Jonathan Bachman/Getty Images)

Like Sewell, Ja’Marr Chase elected to sit out the past college football season. While hauling in passes from Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow in 2019, Chase posted a stat line of: 84 receptions, 1780 yards, and 20 touchdowns in 14 games. Keep in mind Justin Jefferson and fellow 2021 draft mate Terrace Marshall Jr were also getting a bevy of targets that season. None shined more than Ja’Marr though, cementing himself as the best wide receiver available this year.

5. QB Justin Fields (Ohio State)

It seems as though Justin Fields has been the victim of over analysis through the draft process. For two years, Fields was neck and neck with Trevor Lawrence in many’s eyes. Capable of making any throw necessary in the NFL, and possessing athleticism that is rarely seen at the position; Fields is a franchise quarterback that should be selected early on April 29th.

6. QB Trey Lance (North Dakota State)

It’s hard to know exactly what Trey Lance is on the surface. An FCS quarterback that only has one full season under his belt, it is fair to wonder why he’s being held to such a high regard. The answer is fairly simple: Lance can throw a football to the International Space Station with a flick of the wrist. Rushing for nearly 1200 yards in 2019, Trey also has Cam Newton/Josh Allen-like ability in the run game. He has the highest ceiling and lowest floor in the draft, which is a risk that I would take every time with someone as talented as Lance. If his potential is reached, Trey Lance will be the best quarterback in this draft.

7. WR Jaylen Waddle (Alabama)

Jaylen Waddle began the season with 25 receptions, 557 yards and 4 touchdowns in only 4 games. An ankle injury cost him the rest of the regular season. Jaylen was outpacing eventual Heisman Trophy winner and teammate — Devonta Smith — at the time of the injury. Imagine the duo healthy together for a full season. The reason for Waddle being placed higher is due to his explosive, game breaking upside. It doesn’t matter if you’re in the red zone or 80 yards away, Jaylen is a threat to score any time he touches the football.

8. LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah (Notre Dame)

(Mike Miller/Rivals)

My personal favorite player in the entire draft. The NFL is trending in such a way that players with Koramoah’s skillset are becoming more and more valuable with each passing day. Calling JOK a linebacker is like calling Kyle Pitts a tight end; it really does not paint the full picture. He can line up in the slot and outside as a cover corner, is athletic enough to cover running backs out of the backfield, strong enough to be a run stuffer and has the ability to rush the passer on occasion. Simply put, there is nothing JOK can’t do.

9. CB Jaycee Horn (South Carolina)

As the son of former Saints’ star Joe Horn, Jaycee has genetics on his side. Horn is one of the best athletes to ever enter the draft. Standing at 6’, 205 pounds… he ran a 4.4 40 yard dash along with a jaw-dropping vertical (41.5”) and broad jump (11’1). Jaycee is an elite man-to-man press corner that profiles as a top tier player at his position for years to come.

10. QB Zach Wilson (BYU)

Zach “Kapono” Wilson burst onto the scene for the BYU Cougars last season. Following 2 seasons of average-at-best quarterback play, Wilson found a different gear for his junior year. After breaking Steve Young’s school record for completion percentage (73.5), teams will be hoping that accuracy transfers to Sundays. Zach would be the top quarterback available in most drafts, the fact he is the fourth on my board is not an indictment on him in any way. I view Wilson as a high end starter with star potential.

11. CB Patrick Surtain ll (Alabama)

Much like his cornerback counterpart, Jaycee Horn, Surtain has a bloodline of football success. His father was a four sport athlete in high school and went on to play eleven seasons in the NFL after a successful college career at the University of Southern Mississippi. PS2 inherited his fathers athleticism and football ability in spades and was a key cog on Alabama’s National Championship winning team in 2021. I expect him to continue following his fathers footsteps and to have a fruitful, decade long career as a lockdown cornerback in the NFL.

12. WR Devonta Smith (Alabama)

(Kent Gidley/Heisman Trophy Trust)

Coming off of arguably the best college football season for a wide receiver in the history of the sport, Devonta looks to bring his elite route running and hands to an NFL franchise for years to come. Checking in at 6’1 and rumored to weigh somewhere in the 160 pound range, his lack of size is the only thing keeping him from challenging Ja’Marr Chase for the top wide receiver spot in the draft. The Heisman Trophy winner should be able to avoid a lot of the injuries that players of his size are often victim to. DeVonta excels at avoiding contact and is more of a possession receiver as opposed to a burner. He will be an immediate contributor wherever the draft takes him.

13. OT Rashawn Slater (Northwestern)

Many will argue that Slater is the top offensive lineman in this draft, and while I don’t agree, I can see the argument. Having played both tackle positions in college, and projecting as an elite option at guard/center going forward, versatility is the key for Rashawn. Knowing that you can kick him inside and get potential all-pro level play makes taking the chance on Slater worth it. In the 2019 season, the Northwestern Wildcat made a name for himself after manhandling eventual #2 overall pick (and NFL Rookie of the Year) Chase Young in a Big Ten battle versus Ohio State. Arm length is a concern for most scouts but his athleticism will more than make up for any lack of measurables. Draft him with confidence.

14. LB Micah Parsons (Penn State)

Someone as big as Micah Parsons should not be able to move the way that he does. After a blazing 4.36 40 yard dash, combined with exceptional measurements, teams are falling head over heels for the linebacker prospect. What intrigues evaluators the most is his potential to be an impact player on the EDGE as well. He is not quite as polished in pass coverage as Tampa Bay’s Devin White, but the two are similar in terms of being able to take a game over. Rumors of character concerns seem to have been put to rest, clearing the way for Parsons to be one of the first defensive players selected.

15. DT Christian Barmore (Alabama)

Christian Barmore is such a disruptive force from the interior defensive line position. He is capable of lining up directly over the center, as well as having the ability to play DE in a 3-4 defense. Barmore is a very fluid athlete for his size and uses that ability to rush the passer and establish dominance on the line of scrimmage. There isn’t much to dislike about his game, line him up at defensive tackle and the EDGE rushers on your team will thank you.

16. LB Zaven Collins (Tulsa)

(Julio Aguilar/Getty Images)

Zaven is another player that I love a little bit more every time I watch him play. He is an imposing figure (6’4, 259 pounds) that never takes a play off and can impact the game in so many ways. Whether that be sacking the quarterback, intercepting a pass for a pick-six, or forcing a fumble on a rush up the middle… Collins will make at least one big play each game. Death, taxes, and Zaven Collins wrecking a game.

17. IOL Alijah Vera-Tucker (USC)

This former USC Trojan is arguably the most polished offensive lineman in this class. Vera-Tucker spent time at left tackle and guard at USC but is expected to play guard as a professional. He is capable of establishing the run by getting to the second level with ease, opening up lanes that even I could run through. AVT has a football IQ that rivals any in the league and is one of the safest picks in the draft due to his high floor and equally high ceiling.

18. EDGE Azeez Ojulari (Georgia)

(Todd Kirkland/Icon Sportswire)

The best pass rusher in the draft is Azeez Ojulari. He bends the defense in a way that is almost hard to fathom if you haven’t watched him play before. The first step burst is undeniable and hand usage couldn’t be better. Azeez is also much stronger than his weight would indicate. He has the longest wingspan at his position in the draft (82.5”) and knows how to use it to his advantage. I have no doubt about his ability to stuff the run as well as constantly applying pressure on the quarterback. A rare prospect that fits any defensive scheme you deploy. He can put a hand in the dirt or stand up, either way he will find his way to the quarterback.

19. OT Christian Darrisaw (Virginia Tech)

Christian Darrisaw is a 6’5, 322 pound mammoth of a man. He has the exact size you look for in a franchise left tackle with 34.5” arm length, in addition to the monster frame. The former Hokie standout can get sloppy with his technique and footwork at times but when he is dialed in, there are very few better. Darrisaw was the best tackle in the country last season, having been charged with zero sacks given up and all the while being a stalwart in the run game. All the boxes are checked, proper NFL coaching is the last step of his development.

20. EDGE Jaelan Phillips (Miami)

The former number one overall recruit out of high school faces similar concerns. An early retirement from football while attending UCLA looked to be the end of a once promising career. However, Jaelan Phillips got the itch to give it one more go. He decided to take his talents to South Beach by transferring to The U. Jaelan donned the historic #15 and racked up 15.5 tackles for loss & eight sacks in ten games. If there were zero health red flags, Phillips would be a top-ten player on every board.

21. RB Najee Harris (Alabama)

(Kim Klement/USA TODAY Sports)

The best running back in the draft hails from Alabama. After two lackluster years (by Najee’s standards), Harris broke out and seized the bellcow role in the Crimson Tide offense. Racking up 2690 yards on the ground, 729 through the air, and 50 total touchdowns over his final two seasons; Harris has cemented himself as one of the greats. Now it is time to see how his brand of football transfers to the NFL. Bigger than most of the top running backs in the league today, Najee relies on a special blend of strength and elusiveness to churn the ball downfield. Harris will run past you, through you, and even jump over you in an effort to score. I wouldn’t want to be a defender standing in his way.

22. WR Kadarius Toney (Florida)

When you go to watch Kyle Pitts’ tape, it’s impossible to ignore his 5’11, 193 pound dynamo of a partner. By clocking in with 4.4 speed and having short area agility that is unmatched in this draft class, there is reason to believe Toney could have comparable value to that of Justin Jefferson for a team picking in the 20’s. Some teams will view getting Kadarius in the early twenties as a better value than using a top-ten selection on the wide receivers ranked above him.

23. CB Greg Newsome ll (Northwestern)

Injuries seem to be a common concern among the prospects in this range. Having missed eight games in his redshift freshman season, along with three games in each of the past two seasons… it’s fair to question durability with Newsome. When he has been on the field though, he is lights out. Newsome allowed a completion percentage that ranked near the top of the country and was connected at the hip with his matchups in coverage. He is as confident as they come, which is a very important part of being a successful cover corner in the NFL.

24. EDGE Kwity Paye (Michigan)

(Mike Mulholland/

Kwity Paye is a little bit bigger and more traditional of an EDGE defender than most of the other top options at this position. He is capable of playing from the stand up outside linebacker position in the 3-4 but I project him as more of a pure 4-3, hand in the dirt defensive end. Paye only has one season under his belt with more than two sacks, so there is some projecting involved here. He will be an elite run stuffer from the jump, however, so I will take my chances on him developing the other parts of his game.

25. CB Caleb Farley (Virginia Tech)

The teammate of the aforementioned Christian Darrisaw rounds out my top 25. Caleb Farley is a special athlete at the cornerback position, much like Horn and Surtain. The core reason for Farley being lower than those two is directly tied to his health. After suffering a few injuries during his high school and college careers, Caleb unfortunately required back surgery before he could perform at the Virginia Tech pro day. When healthy, you could argue he is the best cornerback prospect with the man-to-man and zone versatility he possesses. It will be interesting to see how much the back impacts his status on draft day. As for me, I wouldn’t hesitate to use a late first round pick if the medicals check out.

26. LB Jamin Davis (Kentucky)

The Kentucky linebacker is the highest riser of the draft process. You can tell when watching the tape that Jamin jumps off the screen. He has a nose for the ball and always seems to find himself in the middle of the play. He has impressive sideline to sideline mobility and, like fellow linebacker prospect Micah Parsons, doesn’t get enough credit for his ability to rush the passer. It was not a key part of his game in college, but using him more in pass rushing situations could change him from a good linebacker to a great all around player.

27. OT Teven Jenkins (Oklahoma State)

Another tackle prospect with less than ideal arm length slots in at 27 on my board. The thing about Teven Jenkins is that I project him as a right tackle, rather than a left tackle. Teven is more comfortable defending the rush from his right side and lacks the ideal lateral quickness that you look for on the the left side. All that being said, I see a lot of Colts’ right tackle Braden Smith when I look at Jenkins. They have nearly an identical build and both are bullies in the run game, while also having the chops to protect the quarterback from oncoming pass rushers.

28. QB Mac Jones (Alabama)

Mac Jones heard rumbles during the spring that incoming true freshman Bryce Young was going to surpass him on the depth chart as the Crimson Tide quarterback. Auburn players cracked jokes and called him a game manager. How did he respond you may ask? By leading the country in completion percentage at 77.4% on over 400 passing attempts, along with 4500 yards and 41 touchdowns to only four interceptions. Mac has the best anticipation in the draft. He is exceptional at throwing receivers open and releasing the ball before they are even out of their break. The arm strength leaves a bit to be desired and he isn’t going to extend many plays, but Jones can make every throw you need an NFL quarterback to make.

29. S Trevon Moehrig (TCU)

(Brandon Wade/AP Photos)

The only safety in the class that I deem worthy of a first round selection is the TCU product, Trevon Moehrig. Gary Patterson is known for his complicated scheme, which makes it a much easier process for his players to shift to the pros without missing a beat. I project him as being able to play either safety position in the NFL, though most of his experience was as the free safety center fielder of the defense. Elite ball skills, range, and the willingness to play in the box against the run makes Moehrig one of my favorite players in the draft.

30. WR Rashod Bateman (Minnesota)

This 6’, 190 pound wide receiver out of Minnesota is a polarizing player around draft circles. Depending who you’re talking to you’ll either hear Bateman mentioned in the same breathe as Chase/Smith/Waddle, or you’ll hear that he’s a mid-second round talent. In my eyes, he falls somewhere in between. He isn’t an athlete that will make your jaw drop due to speed but he will make the highlight catch if you throw it up to him. For a smaller receiver, Bateman loves going up and attacking the ball at it’s peak. He is also very underrated after the catch. I view him as a long term starting receiver.

31. IOL Landon Dickerson (Alabama)

Dickerson is the sixth Alabama player to make an appearance and is as good at his position as any of the players before him on this list. Landon Dickerson is a top-five center in the league from the moment he is drafted and will likely earn a captain patch early in his career. Why is he so low then? Injuries. He had four major injuries, including two season ending ACL tears, over his five year college stint. Teams will have to thoroughly assess him medically, but if doctors believe he is healthy going forward, he is worth the risk at the back end of the first round for those needing a center.

32. EDGE Jayson Oweh (Penn State)

Earlier I touched on Kwity Paye’s lack of production in college, but Jayson Oweh takes that to another level. In 2019, Oweh produced a career-high five sacks over his eleven games played. In 2020, he sacked the quarterback a total of zero times over seven games. This is why you have to use context and not just look at box scores. On tape, Oweh is constantly in the backfield and disrupting the flow of the offense. He set the world on fire with one of the better pro day performances in recent memory and has teams salivating at his potential. It’s hard to ignore zero sacks but with the traits he has, the right NFL team can turn him into a superstar that will consistently turn in seasons with double digit sacks.

33. CB Elijah Molden (Washington)

(Alika Jenner/Getty Images)

What Molden lacks in size, he more than makes up for in toughness and natural born ability. He is a pestering slot defender that is capable of lining up outside or over the top at safety if needed. Teams willing to bet on the traits will be very happy adding such a high character leader to their secondary room. Elijah is of the many Washington Huskies projected to go early in the draft. If Molden was 6’+, he would be a lock for the first round.

34. RB Travis Etienne (Clemson)

(Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)

Dynamic is the word for Travis Etienne. He is a threat to take it to the house every time he touches the ball. ETN took a considerable step back in terms of production on the ground this past season. Failing to eclipse the 1000 yard mark in 12 games, after putting up 1600+ yards in each of the last two seasons, will raise a few eyebrows. However, context is needed. It was a bizarre year as a whole and Clemson was no exception. They temporarily lost Trevor Lawrence to COVID and many others to opt outs and transfers. When given stability, Travis has shown the ability to take over games. While I can’t ignore the dip in production, I bet on him landing in a spot that utilizes his ability in the pass game as well as the run game.

35. EDGE Joe Tryon (Washington)

Joe Tryon looks like he was chiseled from stone. The last time we watched him play football, he produced 12.5 tackles for loss while adding in eight sacks. The Washington defense was unrecognizable this year due to the opt outs of Tryon and Levi Onwuzurike. He needs to refine his pass rush moves and work on getting off the block in the run game, but he is explosive and has potential to be the best EDGE rusher from this class.

36. EDGE Gregory Rousseau (Miami)

(Mark Brown/Getty Images)

If you turn on the 2019 Miami Hurricanes, you’re gonna see the #15 jump off your screen. Don’t be confused, it’s not the previously mentioned Jaelan Phillips. It is his former teammate Gregory Rousseau. Finishing only second to Chase Young in sack production (15.5 sacks to Young’s 16.5), Rousseau has an elite season on tape. The problem is, nearly half of those sacks came in a two game span against less-than-stellar competition. I was hoping to see him replicate his 2019 season with more polish to his game, and more pass rushing moves in his catalog. Teams will be willing to take the chance on his production late in the first.

37. OT Samuel Cosmi (Texas)

Cosmi was an intimidating presence at both tackle positions for the Longhorns. He stands at nearly 6’7 and towers over EDGE defenders. The height can lead to some lazy technique, such as not bending the knees or finishing blocks in the run game. A good offensive line coach can easily fix the issues with fundamentals. The thing about Samuel is that he has intangibles that aren’t teachable. He has length and lateral mobility that coaches love and a mentality of always wanting to improve. I would play Cosmi at left tackle, knowing that he can slide over to the right side if he’s overwhelmed. He needs to add strength and clean up the sloppy form, but he is a franchise tackle if his eventual team exercises patience.

38. DT Levi Onwuzurike (Washington)

(Alika Jenner/Getty Images)

As the third Huskie on the fringe of being a first round selection, Onwuzurike is a very unique player for his position. Weighing in under 300 pounds is usually a red flag for an interior lineman, however most of them are nowhere near the athlete that Levi is. One must factor in the success rate of defensive tackles that come from Washington. Simply put, they know how to develop talent on the line. Onwuzurike planned to return for his senior season after receiving PAC-12 honors as a junior, before eventually opting out due to COVID-19 concerns. He has one of the quickest first steps in the draft and flawless technique when engaged with a blocker. A new age interior defender in every sense of the term.

39. WR Terrace Marshall Jr (LSU)

The “other” LSU wide receiver is a very intriguing prospect. Marshall was able to find the end zone 13 times while being stuck behind Ja’Marr Chase and Justin Jefferson in 2019. Without Chase and JJetta, Terrace was finally able to take over the top spot on the depth chart. He didn’t disappoint, averaging seven catches and over 100 yards per game. I see Marshall as a starting X-receiver and someone that will be matched up with opposing teams’ top cornerback often. I have worries about Terrace being able to separate at an elite level on the outside, but no one believes in him as much as he believes in himself. That type of mentality goes a long way.

40. CB Asante Samuel Jr (Florida State)

(Melina Myers/USA TODAY Sports)

Stop me if you’ve heard this before… it’s another cornerback with a father that had a long, successful career in the NFL. The son of Asante Samuel is the spitting image of his pops. He has an identical build and all of the same traits that made his old man so special. Samuel Jr has the ability to cover the teams best player and the confidence to back it up. Teams may see him as primarily a nickel corner but they are underestimating his ability to cover wide receivers that are much bigger than him. A lack of polish after the catch and a slight tendency to get turned around in coverage are the only red flags for me. Some will point to his size (5’10, 180 pounds) as an issue but, as stated before, he has no issues defending a bigger body. This is the type of player you put your chips on because he has star written all over him when he speaks.

41. OT Alex Leatherwood (Alabama)

It can be said that Alex Leatherwood is the most athletically gifted offensive lineman in a class full of them. He ran a 4.99 40 yard dash (94th percentile), a 34.5” vertical jump (98th percentile), and — most impressive of all — a 9’10 broad jump (99th percentile). All of that is said without even mentioning his exceptional technique and motor. The biggest concern for evaluators when projecting Leatherwood to the NFL is that many view him as a guard rather than a tackle. The lack of length is a cause for concern on the outside but I believe he has more than enough athleticism to hold up. Leatherwood is a starting tackle from day one for nearly any team in the league, with guard capability if his size proves to be an issue.

42. WR Rondale Moore (Purdue)

(Jesse Johnson/USA TODAY Sports)

Rondale Moore arrived to campus with plenty of fanfare, having been a star high school football player in Indiana. The former Boilermaker set the College Football world ablaze as a true freshman. Collecting 114 receptions over 13 games and adding 1258 yards and 12 touchdowns, Rondale produced one of the best freshman seasons of all time. Unfortunately, over the last couple seasons, he has only suited up for seven games with mixed results. Moore is small (5’8, 181 pounds) but is very compact and strong. The health concerns push him farther down the board than he would be based off pure talent, like other prospects in this class. Health provided, he should be a focal point of an offensive game plan in the NFL.

43. LB Nick Bolton (Mizzou)

Mizzou Tiger Nick Bolton is the best MIKE linebacker in the entire draft. He is best in coverage and diagnosing plays pre-snap. Bolton was the quarterback of the defense over his college career and does not shy away from a leadership role. You would like to see a little more size or range from him. Speedy athletes out of the back field and the modern tight ends can cause him trouble in coverage. However, his intelligence and knack for knowing what the offense is running before they snap the ball will mask any athletic impairments.

44. DT Alim McNeill (NC State)

(Grant Halverson/Getty Images)

You won’t find anyone as high on Alim McNeill as I am. If this draft wasn’t loaded at so many premier positions, he would be substantially higher. He was one of the few, rare, pure nose tackles in the country last year. While the technique and moves are unpolished, Alim has an uncanny ability to find his way into the backfield anyway. Constantly blowing up run plays and breaking down the interior of the offensive line on passing downs makes McNeill a nightmare matchup for opposing offensive coordinators.

45. RB Javonte Williams (North Carolina)

Javonte Williams is so deceptive coming out the backfield. He has the ability to make you touch the floor on a juke and a truck stick that could put you in an early grave. Javonte has solid vision when running through the tackles but needs to work on his patience a bit and letting his line create more for him as opposed to just barreling through defenders. Doing so would not only result in big plays on the pro level, but would also increase the shelf life of his career tenfold.

46. WR Amari Rodgers (Clemson)

Another one of *my guys* in this draft is Amari Rodgers out of Clemson. He was the most trusted receiver for Trevor Lawrence last season, and followed up a great career with an amazing showing at the Senior Bowl. Amari was unguardable in the one-on-one drills, creating separation with his burst off the line and flawless footwork. Rodgers lacks elite height (5’9) so he looks to only be a slot receiver, which hurts his top end value overall. Nonetheless, I expect his name to be called early on day two, if not before that.

47. WR Elijah Moore (Ole Miss)

(Nick Tre. Smith/Icon Sportswire)

To continue the previous point, this draft is flooded with slot receivers and Elijah Moore is next up. No one benefitted more from the Lane Kiffin offense. In only eight games, Moore put up 1193 yards on 86 receptions and eight touchdowns to top it off. Elijah is a bit on the smaller side and has a smaller route tree than other receivers in his class. I don’t see him lining up on the outside often but with his speed and moves after the catch, he should be able to make a great career as a slot receiver in the NFL. A position that becomes more and more valuable each season.

48. S Jevon Holland (Oregon)

Speaking of slot receivers being of more value, in turn, players capable of defending those receivers are also rising in value. Jevon Holland is a safety by definition, however, he can do a little bit of everything. He has the short range motion to play zone, the toughness to stop an oncoming running back in his tracks and the athleticism/size to cover receivers and tight ends from the slot. Holland hasn’t played football in awhile — after opting out of the 2020 season — but he could be a player that makes this ranking look silly once he knocks the rust off.

49. IOL Creed Humphrey (Oklahoma)

Humphrey was a three year standout at the center position for the Oklahoma Sooners. He spent two of those seasons snapping the football to Kyler Murray (2018) and Jalen Hurts (2019), which earned him a lot of time in the eyes of talent evaluators. It is hard to ignore the talent of the 6’4, 302 pound snapping them the ball. This past year was his best yet, taking home the Big 12 Best Offensive Lineman award for the 2020 season. The future is bright for this Okie.

50. OT Liam Eichenberg (Notre Dame)

(Robin Alam/Icon Sportswire)

Notre Dame producing starting offensive lineman is as much of a guarantee as there is in sports. Eichenberg isn’t as athletic as other tackles in this class but his technique is on par with any of them. He is looking to follow the footsteps of Zack Martin, Ronnie Stanley, Quenton Nelson, Mike McGlinchey and many other Fighting Irish prospects that were immediate contributors to the team that drafted them. One knock for Liam is his foot speed and ability to handle the speed rushers. For that reason, I project him as a right tackle going forward. A safe, if not spectacular, prospect puts a cap on my top 50.

51. EDGE Boogie Basham (Wake Forest)

52. S Richie Grant (UCF)

53. CB Tyson Campbell (Georgia)

54. TE Pat Freiermuth (Penn State)

55. EDGE Joseph Ossai (Texas)

56. WR Dyami Brown (North Carolina)

57. CB Eric Stokes (Georgia)

58. OT Brady Christensen (BYU)

59. IOL Wyatt Davis (Ohio State)

60. CB Aaron Robinson (UCF)

61. DT Daviyon Nixon (Iowa)

62. OT Dillon Radunz (North Dakota State)

63. IOL Quinn Meinerz (UW-Whitewater)

64. CB Ifeatu Meliwonfu (Syracuse)

65. WR D’Wayne Eskridge (Western Michigan)

66. LB Jabril Cox (LSU)

67. EDGE Rashad Weaver (Pittsburgh)

68. EDGE Payton Turner (Houston)

69. RB Michael Carter (North Carolina)

70. IOL Aaron Banks (Notre Dame)

71. OT Walker Little (Stanford)

72. CB Kelvin Joseph (Kentucky)

73. S Hamsah Nasirildeen (Florida State)

74. DT Milton Williams (Louisiana Tech)

75. WR Nico Collins (Michigan)

76. EDGE Ronnie Perkins (Oklahoma)

77. QB Davis Mills (Stanford)

78. IOL Deonte Brown (Alabama)

79. OT D’Ante Smith (East Carolina)
