Top QBs ready to battle for college football supremacy (1:13)

Lamar Jackson, Sam Darnold and Jalen Hurts headline the top QB Heisman hopefuls. (1:13)

The college football season is inching closer, which means the 2018 NFL draft will be here before you know it. The crew from Scouts Inc. and I spent the summer scouring tape and ranking the top draft prospects at each position.

I started last week with the defense, and so now it's time for the offense. And remember: These are preliminary rankings -- there's no telling who will emerge this season.

Click the links below to read our rankings of the positions we've evaluated so far:

DT | DE | OLB | ILB | CB | S | QB | RB | WR | TE

Note: Underclassmen are marked with an asterisk.


Tight ends

1. Dallas Goedert, South Dakota State

Grade: 79

Goedert is coming off a breakout season (1,293 yards, 11 touchdowns) in which he showed his versatility. He has the athletic ability to give linebackers issues, and his size (listed at 6-foot-4, 258 pounds) is trouble for corners. He needs to follow the previous season with another good one and then do all he can during the postseason process.

2. Troy Fumagalli, Wisconsin

Grade: 70
