2012 NFL draft: Top 5s by position
This is the list of Mel's top five players at each position in the 2012 NFL draft

Below are the top players for each position among those officially in the draft. My other Top 5 list will rank players who will presumably be playing college football next season. Once the draft is complete, we'll again shift back to seniors and underclassmen.
