Alabama CB Dre Kirkpatrick is one of about seven Crimson Tide defenders who may be drafted, and maybe the last to go in round one. Find out how the Bengals, Titans and Lions could all be in play.
Who is the third best QB in this year's draft? It could be Michigan State's Kirk Cousins, who has impressed NFL evaluators throughout the draft process with his off-the-chart intangibles.
Haven't heard of Midwestern State? Amini Silatolu will change that. One of Nolan Nawrocki's favorite evaluations of the year is poised to bring his talent and temperament to the draft's first round.
He's young, he's huge, and he has loads of talent. That's a recipe for tons of upside for LSU DT Michael Brockers, who's a sure-fire first-round draft pick.
Syracuse DE Chandler Jones comes from a tough family--one brother plays in the NFL, the other is a champion MMA fighter. It's the kind of pedigree NFL teams could use a first-round pick on.
Texas A&M QB Ryan Tannehill may be the third best QB in the draft, and with the right seasoning, he could be a great NFL QB. But if a team rushes him, both the team and Tannehill could be in trouble.
A team captain on a National Champion defense, Alabama's Mark Barron brings experience and leadership to the NFL. The safety isn't the best in coverage, but not many DBs can stuff the run like him.

How high will Alabama OLB Courtney Upshaw go in the NFL Draft? The bulldog backer is scheme-versatile, and has a first-round pick with his name on it. Whose uniform will he wear as a pro?
North Carolina DE Quinton Coples poses an intriguing challenge for NFL teams. He's one of the most talented players in the draft, but has a red-flag work ethic. Can an NFL coach turn him around?
He's had his problems off the field, but Michael Floyd cleaned up his act as a senior and posted outstanding numbers at the combine for a WR and could be on track for a top-ten NFL Draft selection.
Alabama's Dont'a Hightower is one of only two ILBs who are likely top-15 prospects. Hightower's biggest selling point, though, is that he's one of the top OLBs, too.
It only took three seasons for Luke Kuechly to break the ACC record for career tackles. Kuechly will look the same in the NFL, showing up wherever the ball is. But whose uniform will he be wearing?
NFL teams in need of a pass-rushing DE will like what they see in South Carolina's Melvin Ingram. Teams with a need at LB will like him too. And DT-needy teams. Long story short: he's versatile.
As more news about Justin Blackmon's character surfaces, evaluators' opinions of him have taken a turn for the worse. But Blackmon is so good that there's still no way he slips out of the top seven.
