We're now a little over three weeks from the first night of the NFL draft -- April 22, a Thursday -- and the list below, of declared players, is going to continue shifting. Jermaine Gresham of the Oklahoma Sooners had been the No. 1 TE on these lists for a while, but Aaron Hernandez of the Florida Gators jumped him last week and has stayed in the No. 1 TE slot this week.

Donald Butler of the Washington Huskies debuted at No. 3 on the ILB list on March 24, wiping Florida's Brandon Spikes from the list entirely. He remains this week as well.

The final three editions of this list -- April 7, April 14 and April 21 -- should see a great deal of change, so keep coming back.


To get a good feel for draft depth at every position, you must be an ESPN Insider.
