Next up in the draft evaluation phrase are pro days, with a notable one for Geno Smith taking place next week. Below you'll get a ranking of players by position, regardless of class. Each player's position is based on my projection of his NFL position. Every player in the 2013 NFL draft class was considered for these top-five lists, so if you don't see a player who you know is in the draft, it's not by accident.

For the top 25 prospects overall, regardless of position, check out my latest 2013 NFL draft Big Board.
