We are now a week away from the NFL draft combine, an event which should have an impact on the draft stocks of several players.
Where do things stand right now? In our latest Top 32 update, the top few prospects remain the same, while a receiver moves into the top 10, a top pass-rusher continues to slide down the board and a handful of new names join the list.
Here is our latest ranking of the top 32 prospects for the 2014 NFL draft.
(Note: The scouting reports will largely stay the same for each edition of these rankings, but we'll update as needed based on news developments. Draft-eligible non-seniors are noted with an asterisk.)1Jadeveon Clowney*COLLEGE: South CarolinaAGE: 20HT: 6-5WT: 258POS: DETkl 41Sack 3.0Int 0
Analysis: Clowney remains the No. 1 prospect on our board, as he has all season. His production dropped off in 2013 and his motor ran hot and cold, especially toward the end of the year, but simply put, he is the most talented player in this class. He has a rare blend of size, athleticism, strength and speed, and he can beat opponents with both his speed rush and his bull rush.PREVIOUS RANK: 1 | PLAYER CARD2Greg Robinson*COLLEGE: AuburnAGE: 21HT: 6-5WT: 320POS: OTGP 13GS 13
Analysis: Robinson combines the size and strength of a road-grading right tackle with the athleticism, agility and length that make him a potential star at left tackle. Yes, Auburn's run-heavy offensive system gave him plenty of opportunities to shine, but he really jumps out on tape. He is dominant at the point of attack.PREVIOUS RANK: 2 | PLAYER CARD3Jake MatthewsCOLLEGE: Texas A&MAGE: 21HT: 6-5WT: 309POS: OTGP 13GS 13
Analysis: Matthews isn't the athlete Robinson is, but he is a very effective blocker both against the run and in pass protection. He has good durability, pedigree and versatility, having played both right and left tackle for the Aggies.PREVIOUS RANK: 3 | PLAYER CARD
