Top 5 draft prospects by position
Ranking the top five QBs, RBs, DEs, LBs and every other position in the 2012 draft class
The players are finally off to the NFL combine. Indy will move some guys around based on any surprising results, but we also know a lot, given all the evaluation time on most guys. Expect to see more tweaks than massive shifts in where guys are ranked as we move ahead, but there are always cases that stand out.
To give you a better sense of depth beyond the usual Big Board, this list consists of the top five prospects by position for the 2012 NFL draft. (As a note: Two players on this list, in cornerbacks and kickers, don't have team logos in the system, which is why that spot is blank. Those would be North Alabama and Western Missouri State.)
