A lot of moves were made here this week as I get close to wrapping up all evaluations for this class. This is a good primer to check on depth at each position and players that will be drafted into Day 3. (Note: Two players on this list -- North Alabama's Janoris Jenkins and Missouri Western State's Greg Zuerlein -- don't have team logos in our system, which is why those spots are blank. Juniors and draft-eligible sophomores are noted with an asterisk.)
