A look at the top prospects available at each position in the upcoming NFL draft (x-denotes early entrant):

OFFENSE

QUARTERBACKS

Article continues below ...
Position outlook: This is a quarterback draft. There could be as many as six taken in the first round and five in the first 15 picks. It’s not crazy to come up with a scenario where four quarterbacks are taken in the first five picks.

x-Sam Darnold Authentic Miguel Montero Jersey , 6-3, 220, USC

Strengths: Excellent arm, good size and can make accurate throws – or the occasional positive run – when the pocket breaks down. Works his progressions.

Weaknesses: Ball security. Ball security. Ball security.

Fact: His grandfather, Dick Hammer, was an Olympic volleyball player and an actor who played the Marlboro Man.

Gone by: Pick No. 3.

x-Josh Rosen, 6-4, 226, UCLA

Strengths: Polished passer with excellent mechanics and nice touch.

Weaknesses: Durability issues in college. Will force plays unnecessarily.

Fact: Was an elite youth tennis player.

Gone by: Top five or so.

Baker Mayfield, 6-1, 215, Oklahoma

Strengths: Accuracy, competiveness, and command of the offense. Gets the ball out quickly and decisively.

Weaknesses: Undersized. Elusiveness and mobility that was a plus in college might not translate to the NFL.

Fact: Went from walk-on to 2017 Heisman Trophy winner. Plus, had two other top-five Heisman finishes.

Gone by: Pick 15.

Josh Allen, 6-5 Authentic Vita Vea Jersey , 233, Wyoming

Strengths: Arm strength, athleticism, size. It’s all ideal.

Weaknesses: Accuracy and ability to change speed on his throws while still being on target.

Fact: Had no major college scholarship offers coming out of high school.

Gone by: Top 10.

x-Lamar Jackson, 6-foot-3, 200 pounds, Louisville

Strengths: All the arm a team would need, plus speed and elusiveness unlike anything the NFL has seen from a top quarterback prospect since Mike Vick.

Weaknesses: Repeatable and consistent throwing mechanics for reliable accuracy.

Fact: Won the Heisman Trophy in 2016 and finished third in 2017 voting.

Gone by: First 20 picks.

Mason Rudolph, 6-5, 235, Oklahoma State

Strengths: Size, strength, and ability – and willingness – to throw deep.

Weaknesses: Limited mobility. Was asked to make limited reads in the offense.

Fact: Completion percentage and yards per pass increased each of last three seasons.

Gone by: Early second round, but could be sixth first-round QB.

Others to watch: Luke Falk, Washington State; Kyle Lauletta, Richmond; Mike White Ravens Anthony Averett Jersey , Western Kentucky.

RUNNING BACKS

Position outlook: Saquon Barkley is the No. 1 player on a lot of experts’ boards, but there are several backs that could provide great value outside the first 20 picks.

x-Saquon Barkley, 6-0, 233, Penn State

Strengths: Quick feet, sharp cuts, top-end speed, powerful lower body, solid pass catcher, willing blocker and, by all accounts, excellent work ethic.

Weaknesses: The one knock: He needs to use that power to run through more tacklers and push piles forward.

Fact: The first Penn State player to reach 3,000 yards rushing and 1,000 yards receiving.

Gone by: Browns at No. 4.

Sony Michel, 5-11, 220 Authentic Matt Duchene Jersey , Georgia

Strengths: Three-down back with good speed, decent receiving skills and ability to pass protect.

Weaknesses: Limited shiftiness.

Fact: Ran for 3,638 yards in four seasons at Georgia while mostly sharing carries with Nick Chubb.

Gone by: Middle of second round.

x-Derrius Guice, 5-10, 212, LSU

Strengths: Runs violently once he breaks the line of scrimmage and has breakaway speed.

Weaknesses: Some durability concerns. Might not be a three-down back.

Fact: Set an SEC record with three career 250-yard games.

Gone by: Middle of second round.

x-Ronald Jones II, 5-11, 200, USC

Strengths: Darting, tough runner who finishes runs by falling forward.

Weaknesses: His style at that size could limit him in NFL.

Fact: Broke Charles White’s USC freshman rushing record in 2015.

Gone by: Late second round.

Others to watch: Nick Chubb, Georgia; Rashaad Penny, San Diego State; Kerryon Johnson, Auburn.

WIDE RECEIVERS

Position outlook: No first-round locks, but expect at least one or two to go on Day 1.

x-Calvin Ridley, 6-0, 189 Authentic Orlando Brown Jr. Jersey , Alabama

Strengths: Game-breaking speed and explosive out of his cuts.

Weakness: Slender. Can he play through contact at the line?

Fact: Surpassed 1,000 yards receiving as a freshman, but limited passing game by Alabama held his numbers down in 2016 and ’17.

Gone by: Top-25 pick, likely first receiver taken.

Courtland Sutton, 6-3, 218, SMU

Strengths: Big, physical red-zone target.

Weaknesses: Possession receiver-type speed.

Fact: Was recruited as a defensive back out of high school.

Gone by: A need-and-fit pick who could slip to third round.

x-D.J. Moore, 6-0, 210, Maryland

Strengths: Elusive after the catch. Excelled with underwhelming quarterback play.

Weaknesses: Needs to improve on catching contested passes.

Fact: Big Ten receiver of the year in 2017 while catching passes from four quarterbacks.

Gone by: Middle of second round.

x-Christian Kirk, 5-10, 200, Texas A&M

Strengths: Good hands and slippery runner. Could be a game-breaking return man.

Weakness: Size could limit him to slot receiver.

Fact: Returned six punts and one kickoff for touchdowns in three seasons at A&M.

Gone by: End of second round.

Others to watch: James Washington, O. Cheap Reggie Jackson Jersey , Cheap Myles Turner Jersey , Cheap Kobe Bryant Jersey , Cheap Goran Dragic Jersey ,
