We’ve seen some incredibly talented wide receiver classes in the draft in recent years, but this one is right up there with them in terms of quality. With Drake London, Garrett Wilson, Treylon Burks, Chris Olave, and Jameson Williams at the top, there’s plenty of high-upside talent to consider in the first round. This is also an excellent offensive line class with Evan Neal, Ikem Ekwonu, and Charles Cross seemingly sure-fire top ten picks and plenty of depth along the line as well. While this quarterback class isn’t as good as in recent years, there may be some teams willing to take a chance on Kenny Pickett, Malik Willis, or Sam Howell being a potential starter.

On the defensive side of this draft class, we have some incredible edge talent on the board. The big headliners of the class are Aidan Hutchinson, who’s almost a lock to be a top-two pick, and Kayvon Thibodeaux, who’s fallen a bit in recent weeks but should still be a clear top-ten pick. The edge class is well-rounded with David Ojabo, Travon Walker, Jermaine Johnson, and George Karlaftis all solid first-round picks. At cornerback, the top names to watch are Derek Stingley Jr. and Ahmad Gardner with Trent McDuffie, Kaiir Elam, Kyler Gordon, Andrew Booth, and Roger McCreary all providing solid depth in this class.
