2021 NFL Draft: Final PFF Top 300 Big Board

The final version of PFF's 2021 NFL Draft Big Board has arrived.

I can assure you that more hours of tape study have been dedicated to assembling this draft board than any other in existence, as the PFF staff has meticulously graded and charted every single FBS college football game since 2014. These rankings are powered by those grades, our analytics team and countless hours of film watching. Enjoy!

View PFF's 2021 NFL Draft position rankings:

QB | RB | WR | TE | T | iOL | DI | EDGE | LB | CB | S

    1. QB Trevor Lawrence, Clemson

      The best quarterback prospect we have ever scouted. There may not be one singular thing Lawrence hangs his hat on, but he’s got the fewest weaknesses of any quarterback we have ever graded.

    2. QB Zach Wilson, BYU

      Call him a one-year wonder if you want, but he earned an impressive 78.8 passing grade as a true freshman before injuries derailed his sophomore campaign. This past season, his 95.5 passing grade was the highest in the country. His off-platform arm talent and special throws make him an elite quarterback prospect.

    3. QB Justin Fields, Ohio State

      You name it, Fields has it. Even with the “bad” on tape this year, Fields still earned his second consecutive passing grade over 92.0. Add in his 4.43 speed, and it’s easy to see how his ability can open up a playbook.

    4. OT Penei Sewell, Oregon

      Sewell earned the highest single-season grade we have ever given to a college offensive tackle … as a true sophomore. We haven't seen him play a snap since his age-19 season, and he’s still talked about as a top-five pick. That tells you everything you need to know about his dominance.

    5. TE Kyle Pitts, Florida

      As rare as Sewell is for an offensive tackle prospect, Pitts might be even rarer for the tight end position. You just don't see 245-pounders move the way he can. Pitts earned a 96.2 PFF grade last year, shattering the single-season grade record for a college tight end.

    6. WR Ja'Marr Chase, LSU

      If Chase had his 2019 season in 2020 instead, there wouldn’t even be a debate for WR1. His 24 deep catches that year were 10 more than any other player in this class. Chase is a rocked-up physical freak, and he even has room to grow as a route-runner.

    7. WR DeVonta Smith, Alabama

      As if you needed any more stats to “wow” you after watching Smith’s Heisman campaign, here’s one that relates to what may be his biggest perceived weakness: He ranked in the top five in yards per route run against press coverage in both 2019 and 2020. Put that on a weighing scale.

    8. WR Jaylen Waddle, Alabama

      No player in this draft class produced more when given the opportunity. Over his career, Waddle generated more yards per route run than any player in this class. Sadly, we didn’t get to see his pro-day numbers because of his ankle injury, but there is no doubt in my mind that they would have been all-timers, given the way he moves on the field.

    9. LB Micah Parsons, Penn State

      Parsons is the best run defender, blitzer and tackler at the position in the draft class. He’s quite easily the best blitzing off-ball linebacker we’ve seen in our seven years of doing this, so it's no surprise that he ranks first in this draft class in PFF pass-rushing grade over his career. We have only ever seen him as a true freshman and sophomore, too. Parsons is a truly special prospect.

      PFF's 2021 NFL Draft Guide contains a full list of pros/cons, a long-form written analysis above a bar chart of stable PFF metrics and Mike Renner's “Bottom Line” and “NFL Draft Projection” for every prospect in the guide.
    10. QB Trey Lance, North Dakota State

      Lance has physical tools for days, and he’s already been exceptional at taking care of the football. As a redshirt freshman, Lance produced a 1.7% turnover-worthy play rate. For context, Trevor Lawrence’s turnover-worthy play rate was 3.6% last season.

    11. OT Rashawn Slater, Northwestern

      Slater was already extraordinarily good back in 2019 as a junior before he opted out in 2020. No projection is necessary. He allowed only five pressures and earned a 90.0 overall grade across 355 pass-blocking snaps.

    12. DI Christian Barmore, Alabama

      Barmore may have been inconsistent, but his dominant moments were as special as any defensive tackle prospect we’ve seen outside of Quinnen Williams. While he put up zero pressures against the likes of Tennessee and Florida this past season, he also logged 12 pressures in the College Football Playoff against two quality interior offensive lines.

    13. CB Patrick Surtain, Alabama

      Surtain was the highest-graded cornerback in college football this past season and has seen his PFF grade increase every single year since his freshman campaign. It's also not hard to project him to the NFL, as he has played 662 press coverage snaps over the past two years.

    14. QB Mac Jones, Alabama

      Jones produced the second-highest passing grade in college football last season at 94.8, but he also benefitted from the easiest situation of any quarterback in the college game. His underneath accuracy is his calling card, which can still be a pathway to success in the NFL. He was the most accurate quarterback in the country on passes thrown under 10 yards downfield in 2020, per our ball-placement charting.

    15. OT Christian Darrisaw, Virginia Tech

      Darrisaw earned the highest PFF grade of any offensive tackle in the Power 5 in 2020 — there wasn’t a single blip on his radar from start to finish. He’s such a powerful 315-pounder and allowed all of six pressures over the entire season. More importantly, he didn’t allow a single sack or hit.

    16. S Trevon Moehrig, TCU

      Moehrig has some of the best ball production you’ll see from a safety prospect, as he led all FBS safeties in pass breakups in each of the past two seasons. At 6-foot-2, 202 pounds, Moehrig has ideal size and physicality for the position, as well.

    17. WR Rashod Bateman, Minnesota

      There genuinely aren’t many holes that can be poked in Bateman’s game. While his junior-year production didn’t quite stack up to his sophomore-year production, much of the latter came after contracting COVID-19 and losing 10 pounds right before the season. He was one of the highest-graded receivers in the country as a sophomore and led the nation in yards per route run from an outside alignment.

    18. CB Jaycee Horn, South Carolina

      This is the press-man cornerback you want in this draft class. He allowed only eight catches from 24 targets in the SEC last season. The issue was that even with the relatively lax college rules, Horn was still flagged five times. He’ll need to reel that in at the next level.

    19. LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, Notre Dame

      Versatile, instinctive and explosive, JOK ticks the boxes you want to see from a modern linebacker. He generated the second-highest slot coverage grade of any player in the country last season. Oh, and did I mention that he’s a 221-pound linebacker? That type of coverage prowess is rare for the position.

    20. CB Greg Newsome, Northwestern

      Newsome’s biggest knock is that we just didn’t get to see more of him this past year. He allowed all of 12 catches on 34 targets for 93 yards. With the Big Ten’s shortened schedule, however, those came on only 223 coverage snaps. He’s got the best feet of any corner in the class and can plug into any scheme in the league.

    21. IOL Alijah Vera Tucker, USC

      Vera-Tucker put up the highest pass-blocking grade on true pass sets of any lineman over the past two seasons, and he did it between guard and tackle. While his 32 1/8-inch arms may lead to him playing on the interior in the NFL, we’d still give him a shot at tackle.

    22. WR Elijah Moore, Ole Miss

      You won’t find a slot receiver with more tough catches on tape than Moore. He hauled in 73% of his contested catch opportunities this past season during his 1,193-yard campaign. That physicality makes me think he can hack it on the outside in the NFL.

    23. CB Caleb Farley, Virginia Tech

      Farley's recent back surgery is the only thing keeping him from being CB1 on PFF’s board. The last time we saw him, in 2019, he earned a 90.5 coverage grade and allowed a passer rating of only 26.8. He’s got elite closing speed downfield and can easily affect the catch point at 6-foot-2, 207 pounds.

    24. EDGE Kwity Paye, Michigan

      Paye has the kind of physical tools that don’t come around every class. Whether it’s the sub-6.5-second three-cone he ran as a junior or the 36 bench press reps he did at his pro day, Paye is the definition of “built different.” This season we finally saw him start to put it all together, as his 87.1 pass-rushing grade suggests.

    25. EDGE Jayson Oweh, Penn State

      Oweh may not have recorded a sack last year, but he was still making a big impact in the pass rush. We actually saw real improvement from 2019, as his overall grade went from 74.6 to 85.4 this past season. He boasted the single freakiest pro day at the edge position I’ve ever seen and only started playing football in 2016.

    26. OT Walker Little, Stanford

      We haven’t seen Little play since Week 1 of 2019. While some may look at that as a negative, that’s an incredible amount of development we have yet to see. We already saw considerable development from him as a sophomore in 2018, as he only allowed one pressure over his final seven games.

    27. EDGE Jaelan Phillips, Miami (FL)

      Phillips put it all together for the Hurricanes this past season, recording 42 pressures and an 86.6 overall grade. The former five-star started his career at UCLA before being forced to retire due to concussions. After taking 2019 off, he showed why he was so highly touted this past season. Phillips has got all the physical tools you could want for the position, but the injury history is concerning.

    28. WR Terrace Marshall, LSU

      Marshall took over the Justin Jefferson role in the slot this year, and his production exploded as “the guy” for LSU. He’s racked up 23 touchdowns on 94 catches over the past two seasons. He’s not even 21 years old, but very few receivers in this class can match him in terms of catch radius.

    29. CB Asante Samuel Jr., Florida St.

      He’s undersized for the position, but there’s not much else in Samuel’s game you can poke holes in. He’s started for three years and has seen his coverage grade improve every year. He allowed only 179 yards into his coverage last season.

    30. EDGE Azeez Ojulari, Georgia

      Ojulari is a sub-250-pound rusher but has the length and explosiveness to get by on the edge. He uses his hands about as well as any edge defender in the class, with his patented cross-chop getting him to a 91.7 pass-rushing grade this past season. Even at his size, Ojulari can still play a three-down role.

    31. OT Teven Jenkins, Oklahoma State

      Jenkins is an absolute mauler in the run game, and he earned a 93.6 run-blocking grade at right tackle last season. While relatively untested in the Big 12, Jenkins only allowed 11 pressures on 623 pass-blocking snaps over the past two seasons.

    32. OT Dillon Radunz, NDSU

      Radunz earned his spot here with a lights-out performance at the Senior Bowl, where he was the highest-graded tackle in the one-on-ones, throughout the week of practice and in the game itself. He’s a bit slim at just over 300 pounds, but he is an explosive athlete who gets by with a strong anchor.

    33. WR Rondale Moore, Purdue

      Moore is a different breed of athlete for the position. He led all of college football in broken tackles (33) as a true freshman in 2018. Injuries have since hampered him, but he’ll be a weapon with the ball in his hands in the NFL. The issue is what exactly his role will be, as he measured in at only 5-foot-7 and 180 pounds on his pro day.

    34. LB Nick Bolton, Missouri

      Bolton is arguably the most instinctive linebacker in the class. He’s racked up stops in both the run and pass game over the past two seasons. He’s also gotten his hands on the ball despite being small for the position, tallying 11 pass breakups and two picks over that span.

    35. S Elijah Molden, Washington

      Molden is the gold standard in the slot for this class. He earned a 90.9 coverage grade in that role in 2019 and backed it up with a mark of 86.2 this past season. While he's a little undersized to stay outside, he’s a physical tackler who has the skills to move to safety seamlessly.

    36. LB Zaven Collins, Tulsa

      Collins is one unique backer at 6-foot-5, 260 pounds. He’s not physically limited by any means at that size and earned a 93.0 coverage grade this past season for Tulsa. While he won’t be for everyone, certain schemes will covet that size.

    37. EDGE Gregory Rousseau, Miami (FL)

      Rousseau exploded with a monster 16-sack redshirt freshman campaign in 2019 before opting out this past year. However, his 80.7 pass-rushing grade doesn’t quite measure up to that sack total, as he has struggled to win on the outside.

    38. OT Samuel Cosmi, Texas

      Cosmi is one of the most battle-tested tackles in this class when it comes to pass protection. He has played over 1,500 pass-blocking snaps between right and left tackle in his career and handled himself well this past season, earning a 90.7 pass-blocking grade.

    39. WR Kadarius Toney, Florida

      Toney is electric with the ball in his hands and has truly rare movement skills. While he’s still raw as a route-runner, Toney is getting drafted highly because of his 43 broken tackles across 120 catches.

    40. OT Alex Leatherwood, Alabama

      Leatherwood is a brute in the run game, which is why he earned an 85.5 grade in that regard this past season. While he’s got ideal length for tackle, Leatherwood tends to give the edge to quicker edge rushers and allowed 16 pressures this past season.

      PFF's 2021 NFL Draft Guide contains a full list of pros/cons, a long-form written analysis above a bar chart of stable PFF metrics and Mike Renner's “Bottom Line” and “NFL Draft Projection” for every prospect in the guide.
    41. LB Jamin Davis, Kentucky

      Davis put together one heck of a season in his first year as a starter in 2020, earning an 87.5 run-defense grade for the Wildcats and showing some legit sideline-to-sideline range. He ran in the 4.4s at his pro day and tied the record for the highest vertical jump ever recorded by an off-ball linebacker (42 inches). He has all the athletic tools to be your do-it-all linebacker in the NFL.

    42. EDGE Carlos Basham Jr., Wake Forest

      Basham has elite explosiveness for a 285-pounder. His get-off will challenge every tackle he faces. That being said, he’s far less physical than his size would suggest. His 77.2 pass-rushing grade this past season was lackluster compared to what he’s capable of physically.

    43. EDGE Ronnie Perkins, Oklahoma

      Perkins is the only edge defender in this class who earned run-defense and pass-rushing grades over 90.0 in 2020. He’s been starting ever since his true freshman year in 2018 and took a massive step forward this past season. The problem is that we only saw him do it for 262 snaps.

    44. IOL Landon Dickerson, Alabama

      Dickerson was hands down the best center in the country this past season and earned a 91.3 overall grade to lead the position. He’s played every offensive line position at one point or another in his college career. If it weren’t for the torn ACL he suffered in the SEC title game — the second ACL tear of his career — Dickerson would be a top-25 player in the class.

    45. WR Dyami Brown, North Carolina

      Brown just wins downfield. He’s not particularly physically imposing, but he knows how to get open. He’s averaged over 20.0 yards per catch in each of the past two seasons. His ability to play physically despite being only 189 pounds is a plus at the next level.

    46. LB Jabril Cox, LSU

      Cox has one of the best coverage pedigrees in the entire draft class. He’s earned coverage grades of 87.4, 85.2 and 83.5 over the past three seasons between North Dakota State and LSU.

    47. S Jamar Johnson, Indiana

      Johnson’s high-end coverage plays are special. You won’t find a safety with better ball production per snap in the class. On 406 career coverage snaps, Johnson’s picked off seven passes and broken up six others. Just don’t ask him to play in the box — he’s a liability as a tackler and missed 13 of his 49 attempts last year.

    48. OT Jackson Carman, Clemson

      Carman has legit movement skills for a 320-pound tackle. He’s still a bit of a work in progress in pass protection — he only earned a 77.1 pass-block grade last year — but he’s only a true junior with two years of starting experience.

    49. S Richie Grant, UCF

      Grant is one of the most experienced safeties in the draft class. He’s played 2,658 career snaps for the Knights in a versatile safety role. He’s quite easily one of the best safeties in run support, too, so it's easy to see why he came away with a 90.0 grade in that regard this past season.

      Quarterbacks, wide receivers and tight ends in the PFF NFL Draft Guide will have two heat maps showing routes run for the offense (quarterbacks) or routes the player ran (wide receivers, tight ends) and another heat map showing targets. Offensive linemen and most defensive players have a display of snaps played by alignment.
    50. S Jevon Holland, Oregon

      Holland started at safety as a true freshman in 2018 before switching to the slot in 2019 and opting out this past season. He excelled in coverage in both roles, recording an 89.6 coverage grade as a freshman and an 85.3 grade as a sophomore, with 20 combined picks and pass breakups over that span.

    51. IOL Quinn Meinerz, Wisconsin-Whitewater

      Meinerz earned his spot with a dominant Senior Bowl week. He won 58% of his reps in the one-on-ones throughout the week of practices, which is all the more impressive considering the level-of-competition leap and the fact that he didn’t have a season this past fall.

    52. OT Liam Eichenberg, Notre Dame

      Eichenberg may be seen as a guard in the NFL, given the short 32 3/8-inch arms, but he has played left tackle for Notre Dame for the past three seasons. We saw his grades greatly improve every year over that span, culminating in an 89.9 overall grade this past season.

    53. RB Javonte Williams, North Carolina

      Williams has rare contact balance. His 76 broken tackles on 157 carries this past season produced easily the highest broken tackle rate we’ve recorded for a single season. Not even 21 years old, Williams is still an ascending player.

    54. DI Alim McNeill, N.C. State

      McNeil earned the highest run-defense grade among the country's defensive tackles this past season. He’s an immovable force on the nose at 320 pounds and has enough burst off the line to develop as a pass-rusher.

    55. TE Pat Freiermuth, Penn State

      Freiermuth was the focal point of the Nittany Lions offense this past season before going down with a shoulder injury. He racked up 310 yards in four games with 23 catches on 37 targets. At nearly 260 pounds, he is a jumbo-sized target at the position.

    56. CB Aaron Robinson, UCF

      Robinson manned the slot for UCF over the past couple of seasons, but he’s not your typical slot. This past season, 187 of his 339 coverage snaps still came in press coverage — a rarity for a slot corner. That makes you think that his skills can translate on the outside.

    57. S Ar'Darius Washington, TCU

      The TCU safety may not even be 180 pounds, but he continually plays bigger than his listed size. Over the past two seasons, Washington has earned a 91.3 coverage grade, allowing only 15 total catches on his 35 targets in coverage.

    58. EDGE Payton Turner, Houston

      Before he got hurt, Turner was dominant in four games this past season, putting up a 90.0 pass-rushing grade in the process. He’s also got an ideal build for the edge, with absurd 35 3/8-inch arms.

    59. S Andre Cisco, Syracuse

      Cisco has incredible plays littered all over his tape and had more combined picks and pass breakups in his three-year career than games played. Unfortunately, he tore his ACL halfway through 2020, and his stock will take a hit accordingly.

    60. EDGE Joseph Ossai, Texas

      Ossai only started playing on the line of scrimmage full-time this past season. He’s a bursty, undersized edge who’s still only scratching the surface after earning an 81.1 run-defense grade and 80.5 pass-rushing grade last season.

    61. IOL Wyatt Davis, Ohio State

      Davis has some of the best pass-blocking tape of any interior lineman in the class. Unfortunately, he also dealt with a recurring knee injury in 2020 that cost him multiple parts of games.

    62. IOL Creed Humphrey, Oklahoma

      Humphrey has been starting at center for three seasons for the Sooners and didn’t allow a single sack in his career. He has the size and athleticism to play any position on the interior.

    63. EDGE Rashad Weaver, Pittsburgh

      Weaver came back from a torn ACL in 2019 to be one of the most productive edge defenders in the country this past season. He’s a long-limbed edge who wins with his hands and play strength. He racked up 48 pressures and a 90.0 pass-rushing grade this past season.

    64. QB Kyle Trask, Florida

      Trask balled out in the loaded Florida offense this past season. He led the country with 41 big-time throws. He’s not particularly toolsy, but he is exceptional at working from the pocket and making big plays.

    65. RB Najee Harris, Alabama

      Harris had an incredibly productive Alabama career with rushing grades of 91.8, 89.8 and 90.1 the past three seasons. He also established himself as one of the best receiving backs in the country, with only three career drops on 83 catchable targets.

    66. RB Travis Etienne, Clemson

      With 4.4 speed, Etienne is one of the best home run threats at the position in recent college football history. He racked up 85 runs of 15-plus yards in his Clemson career. He also reinvented himself in the passing game as his career went on and led all backs in the country with 588 receiving yards in 2020.

    67. CB Kelvin Joseph, Kentucky

      Joseph is a bit of a roller coaster on tape, as evidenced by his 70.7 coverage grade this past season. It’s the games like Tennessee (92.3 coverage grade) and Alabama (85.9) that get you excited about what he’s physically capable of doing at the next level.

    68. IOL Kendrick Green, Illinois

      Green is one of the most explosive offensive linemen in the draft. After switching from defensive line early in his career, Green tied for the FBS lead for big-time blocks among interior linemen this past season.

    69. CB Tay Gowan, UCF

      Gowan only has one season of major college football under his belt back in 2019 before opting out this past season. That year he earned an 80.1 coverage grade and only allowed 20 receptions for 274 yards from 50 targets.

      Quarterbacks, wide receivers and tight ends in the PFF NFL Draft Guide will have two heat maps showing routes run for the offense (quarterbacks) or routes the player ran (wide receivers, tight ends) and another heat map showing targets. Offensive linemen and most defensive players have a display of snaps played by alignment.
    70. CB Ifeatu Melifonwu, Syracuse

      Melifonwu has rare physical tools for the position at 6-foot-2, 205 pounds with a 41.5-inch vertical and 11-2 broad jump. In two years as a starter, however, Melifonwu has earned coverage grades of just 79.3 and 74.1, as he’s not quite as physical as his athletic testing might suggest.

    71. WR Josh Palmer, Tennessee

      Palmer ran mostly the vertical tree in Tennessee’s offense and rarely got targeted because of it. That’s why his 475 yards this past season really don’t do him justice. His 81% win rate was the highest of any outside receiver at the 2021 Reese's Senior Bowl one-on-ones.

    72. CB Eric Stokes, Georgia

      Stokes has low-4.3 speed and has been one of the stingiest corners in college football over the past three seasons. This past year, Stokes allowed only 16-of-28 targets for 145 yards with four picks.

    73. DI Milton Williams, Louisiana Tech

      Williams put together an all-time pro day with a 4.67-second 40-yard dash and 38.5-inch vertical at 284 pounds. He’s a pure three-technique who came on strong down the stretch this past season with a 90.8 overall grade.

    74. OT Brady Christensen, BYU

      Christensen broke the PFF record for overall grade by a tackle at 96.0 in 2020. While he is on the older side (24), Christensen’s dominance is difficult to ignore after allowing three pressures all last season.

    75. EDGE Joe Tryon, Washington

      Tryon is a long and explosive defensive end who had little in the way of production before opting out this past season. He earned only a 71.9 pass-rushing grade in his lone year as a starter in 2019.

    76. CB Thomas Graham Jr., Oregon

      Graham started since he was a true freshman for Oregon and was one of the best corners in the country as a sophomore and junior before opting out in 2020. He earned coverage grades of 79.8 and 82.9 with 19 pass breakups and five picks over that span.

    77. WR Cade Johnson, South Dakota State

      Johnson was uber-productive on tape against FCS competition, but it was at the Senior Bowl where he really shot up boards. Johnson left that week of practices with the highest grade in the one-on-ones working primarily from the slot.

    78. DI Levi Onwuzurike, Washington

      We never got to see what the next step could be from Onwuzurike after earning an impressive 82.5 overall grade in his lone year as a starter in 2019. A 2020 opt-out, Onwuzurike still looked inconsistent in the week of practices at the Senior Bowl. He’s a three-technique at the next level with one of the best first steps in the class.

    79. WR Jaelon Darden, North Texas

      Darden is electric with the ball in his hands and is a threat to house it from everywhere. He totaled 19 touchdowns on 74 catches for 1,190 yards for North Texas this past season.

    80. EDGE Dayo Odeyingbo, Vanderbilt

      Odeyingbo is a versatile defender who can move up and down the line of scrimmage with ease. At 6-foot-5, 276 pounds with 35.5-inch arms, Odeyingbo can affect quarterbacks from any alignment.

      Quarterbacks, wide receivers and tight ends in the PFF NFL Draft Guide will have two heat maps showing routes run for the offense (quarterbacks) or routes the player ran (wide receivers, tight ends) and another heat map showing targets. Offensive linemen and most defensive players have a display of snaps played by alignment.
    81. QB Davis Mills, Stanford

      A former five-star recruit, Mills has had an injury-plagued time at Stanford and has fewer than a dozen career starts. We saw a distinct improvement in his five games this past season, though, as he earned an 82.9 overall grade on the year.

    82. OT Stone Forsythe, Florida

      Forsythe is a super high cut tackle at 6-foot-8, 307 pounds. That made him one of the most difficult tackles in the SEC to get around this past season. He only allowed 16 pressures on 513 pass-blocking snaps.

    83. DI Tommy Togiai, Ohio State

      Togiai is a super disruptive three-technique, but we just simply haven’t seen a ton of him. He earned an 87.5 overall grade this past season in his first year as a starter, but he still only played 291 total defensive snaps.

    84. QB Kellen Mond, Texas A&M

      Mond has the tools to hack it as a starter in the league, but we’ve rarely seen the high end on his tape over three seasons as a starter. His 81.3 passing grade with Texas A&M this past season was the highest of his career.

    85. IOL Trey Smith, Tennessee

      After an impressive true freshman campaign that saw him play well at multiple positions, Smith had his career derailed with injuries. He never quite developed the way many had hoped and only earned a 73.4 overall grade this past season.

    86. DI Bobby Brown, Texas A&M

      Brown was a bit of a surprise to declare after his junior season, but we’ve seen multiple solid years as a run defender from him at this point. There’s reason to believe he can be a better pro than college defensive tackle with some high-level physical tools.

    87. WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, USC

      St. Brown struggled a bit to separate down the field in 2020 in his first year as a full-time outside receiver. He thrived from the slot, though, as a freshman and sophomore. He's also one of the more nuanced route-runners in this class.

    88. EDGE Cameron Sample, Tulane

      Sample turned it on in a big way this past season. He earned an 84.0 run-defense grade and a 90.4 pass-rushing grade for the Green Wave. At 6-foot-3, 280 pounds, Sample is a versatile defensive end who also can be effective rushing from the interior.

    89. RB Michael Carter, North Carolina

      Carter ran for 7.9 yards per carry and earned a 91.1 rushing grade with UNC in 2020. He’s also a weapon in the passing game and caught 25 balls for 267 yards this past season.

    90. CB Benjamin St-Juste, Minnesota

      St-Juste is a unique corner at 6-foot-3, 205 pounds. He really made a name for himself in the Senior Bowl one-on-ones, where he earned the highest grade of any corner in attendance.

    91. RB Khalil Herbert, Virginia Tech

      After transferring from Kansas, Herbert broke out in a big way this past fall. He earned a 91.3 rushing grade with 42 broken tackles on 155 attempts and averaged 7.6 yards per carry.

    92. EDGE Patrick Johnson, Tulane

      Johnson has been one of the most consistently productive edge rushers in the country the past three seasons. He earned a 91.2 pass-rushing grade on 837 pass-rushing snaps over that span.

    93. DI Osa Odighizuwa, UCLA

      Odighizuwa should be coveted by teams in need of a 3-4 defensive end with his combination of anchor and length. He’s earned run-defense grades of 83.2, 80.6 and 78.4 the past three seasons.

    94. DI Marvin Wilson, Florida State

      Wilson came back to try and push his draft stock high into Round 1, but he may have incidentally torpedoed it in the process. He looked like a different player on tape this year and only earned a 67.7 overall grade after a 90.7 in 2019.

    95. IOL Ben Cleveland, Georgia

      Cleveland is about as well proportioned a 6-foot-6, 343-pound guard as you’ll ever see. He was impenetrable in pass protection over the course of his career. He only had 13 pressures allowed across 600 pass-blocking snaps the past three seasons.

    96. TE Tommy Tremble, Notre Dame

      Tremble earned the highest run-blocking grade of any tight end in the country last season. He’s at his best blocking on the move and could even be seen as a fullback in the NFL.

    97. LB Pete Werner, Ohio State

      Werner has an ideal blend of size and athleticism at the position. There aren’t a ton of “wow” plays on his tape, but he’s not going to be limited at the NFL level, either.

    98. CB Tre Brown, Oklahoma

      Brown has been starting for the past three years for the Sooners and continually plays larger than his listed 5-foot-9, 185 pounds. He’s super physical in press and could likely still hold up on the outside in the NFL.

    99. S Divine Deablo, Virginia Tech

      Deablo has been a three-year starter for the Hokies who really came on strong this past season with four picks and two pass breakups. At over 220 pounds, Deablo may even be seen as a linebacker prospect by some teams in the league.

    100. IOL Robert Hainsey, Notre Dame

      Hainsey is one of our favorite center converts in the class. He was terrific in pass protection at right tackle over the course of his career but doesn’t quite have the feet to stick there. His hand usage is exceptional, though, and translated extremely well to center at the Senior Bowl.
