Brent Sobleski's Draft Round Rankings

Yesterday, Sobo offered up his top 400 players, ranked by position. Today, he ranks the players by round, and offers his thoughts on where they should go in the draft.

1. Laremy Tunsil, OT Ole Miss
The Ole Miss product has the potential to be the game’s best left tackle. 

2. Joey Bosa, DE Ohio State
Some might say Bosa’s game dropped off as a junior. Those people didn’t watch him closely enough. 

3. Jalen Ramsey, CB Florida State 
An Olympic-level athlete who can be used in a variety of ways at either cornerback or safety.

4. Myles Jack, LB UCLA   
A gigantic question mark surrounds Jack due to a knee injury, but a more versatile player can’t be found. 

5. Andrew Billings, NT Baylor
This 6’2”, 310-pound powerhouse has the potential to be the best defender from this class. 

6. Jared Goff, QB Cal
The No. 1 quarterback from start to finish. 

7. Ezekiel Elliott, RB Ohio State
Here is the safest pick in the draft and a running back truly worthy of a top selection. 

8. Carson Wentz, QB North Dakota State
Wentz is physically and mentally ready, but he needs to develop as a natural passer. 

9. Mackensie Alexander, CB Clemson 
A pure and natural cover corner who wins with great preparation, attitude, and footwork. 

10. Taylor Decker, OT Ohio State 
Decker couples his physical play with stellar technique and angles as either a left or right tackle. 

11. Jarran Reed, DE Alabama  
Stopping the run might not be sexy, but Reed did it better than any prospect in the past two draft classes. 

12. DeForest Buckner, DE Oregon
No one can deny Buckner’s physical ability at 6’7” and 291 pounds, but he shows some inconsistencies with pad level and run defense. 

13. Karl Joseph, S West Virginia
A complete safety who can blitz the quarterback, cover in the slot or simply knock a receiver’s head off. 

14. Noah Spence, DE E. Kentucky      
The best pure pass-rusher in this year’s class.    

15. Josh Doctson, WR TCU
Doctson is the No. 1 wide receiver prospect, because excels at winning outside the numbers and in the red zone. 

16. Laquon Treadwell, WR Ole Miss 
This 20-year-old target claims ideal size (6’2” and 221 pounds), and he’s absolutely fearless over the middle of the field. 

17. Sheldon Rankins, DT Louisville
An under-sized yet disruptive presence along the defensive interior. 

18. Vernon Hargreaves, CB Florida
Hargreaves doesn’t have the preferred height or length of an NFL cornerback, but he’s a smooth operator in coverage. 

19. Ronnie Stanley, OT Notre Dame
While Stanley is a premier athlete at left tackle, some still question his technique and attitude. 

20. William Jackson III, CB Houston 
Ball skills and speed are highly valued, and Jackson has both. He led major college football with 28 defended passes last season and ran a 4.37-second 40-yard dash. 

21. Darron Lee, LB Ohio State 
Lee is the epitome of a modern-day linebacker at 232 pounds with 4.47-second 40-yard-dash speed. 

22. Shaq Lawson, DE Clemson
A true three-down defender who might be better against the run than rushing the passer.   

23. Kenny Clark, NT UCLA
This 20-year-old interior defender is already physically prepared to play in the NFL with his violent hands at the point of attack.                            

24. Cody Whitehair, OT/OG Kansas State
The Kansas State product will be projected inside due to body type (i.e. short arms), but he’s a sound technician and reliable blocker.

25. A'Shawn Robinson, DT Alabama 
Another young interior defender at 21 years old, Robinson can be physically dominant, and he’s only scratched the surface of his talent. 

26. Reggie Ragland, LB Alabama
Ragland is a true field general and a physical presence at inside linebacker. Questions linger about him being a three-down linebacker, though. 

27. Paxton Lynch, QB Memphis
As physically talented as the top two quarterback prospects, the 6’7”, 244-pound Lynch is much further behind on the learning curve. 

28. Leonard Floyd, LB Georgia
The former Bulldog is a spider-like edge player with tremendous athleticism, but he’ll struggle at the point of attack. 

29. Kevin Dodd, DE Clemson
A late bloomer who dominated late in his junior campaign and finished with 23.5 tackles for loss and 12 sacks. 

30. Jason Spriggs, OT Indiana
The Indiana product is a stellar athlete on the blind side and his play transferred against the highest competition at the Senior Bowl. 

31. Michael Thomas, WR Ohio State
An underutilized target at Ohio State with the size (6’3” and 212 pounds), route-running and bloodlines coaches love.
