Please note, that there may be some players not ranked, and this is due to me not knowing enough, or having studied up enough on those prospects, to fully evaluate them, and rank them.

The most notable players who are missing include the following.

Alabama RB Derrick Henry

Tennessee WR Marquez North

Alabama TE O.J. Howard

Notre Dame C/OG Nick Martin

Baylor OT Spencer Drango

Auburn DE/OLB Carl Lawson

Alabama DT A’Shawn Robinson

Baylor NT Andrew Billings

Notre Dame OLB Jaylon Smih

UCLA OLB Myles Jack

Ohio State OLB Darron Lee

Alabama CB/S Eddie Jackson.

And finally due to not fully evaluating enough prospects, I’m unsure of the exact time frame for my initial positional rankings, and when they will be released on the site.
