This is a helpful primer during the draft. I've ranked players across every single position -- even the kickers. This will be a final ranking for this group. (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.)
