NFL Network Analyst Daniel Jeremiah
The 2017 NFL Draft officially kicks off three weeks from today in Philadelphia, and as it draws near, more and more draft analysts continue to release their mock drafts and top prospect evaluations. Among them, NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah recently released the fourth edition of his top 50 prospects for the 2017 campaign.
At the quarterback position, no one in this year's class ranks within Jeremiah's top 25, and there's still no clear indication which of the lot will be taken first. This is a defense-heavy draft, loaded with ample playmakers in the secondary. Within Jeremiah's top 10, seven players line up on the defensive side of the ball, and while there hasn't been any drastic movement since his last list, it should indicate that there's no question these players are studs.
An exclusive look at the top 50 prospects leading up to the 2017 NFL Draft, according to Daniel Jeremiah.
The biggest change to the top 50 comes at number 36, which is currently populated by University of Houston linebacker Tyus Bowser. Bowser, has climbed 14 spots into the top 50 after previously being unranked. The biggest name to fall down the list is Florida cornerback Teez Tabor, who many analysts have inked as a first round draft pick. Jeremiah's list isn't necessarily a blueprint to how the draft could pan out, but it clearly conveys who's at the top of a lot of draft boards.
Here's a look at who Jeremiah has in his top 10:
- Myles Garrett – DE, Texas A&M
- Jamal Adams – S, LSU
- Malik Hooker – S, Ohio State
- Leonard Fournette – RB, LSU
- Solomon Thomas – DE, Stanford
- Jonathan Allen – DE, Alabama
- Marshon Lattimore – CB, Ohio State
- O.J. Howard – TE, Alabama
- Reuben Foster – LB, Alabama
- Corey Davis – WR, Western Michigan
