There are only 32 spots in my latest mock draft update , which means plenty of prospects with first-round tools and talent have been left out.
This week's Nickel Package (which is really a dime package) looks at the 10 best players I'm projecting to be on the outside looking in at the first round.
Among them are a pair of standout wide receivers, a trio of offensive linemen and two big-name quarterbacks. Below is a breakdown of each of the top 10 remaining players on my board.
1. West Virginia WR Tavon Austin: A dynamic offensive weapon with elite long speed, impressive body control and the ability to make cuts at full speed, Austin also shows the versatility to line up as a slot receiver or in the backfield and to return kicks. He's undersized (5-foot-8⅜, 173 pounds), but piling up 572 total yards in a shootout loss to Oklahoma created first-round buzz that has carried into the pre-draft process.
