Here we'll look at which players have moved up and down our top 32, drawing on the same scouting reports as before and making changes where necessary.

We'll continue to update our board as we get closer to the 2017 NFL draft and complete our evaluations. Although it's a given that some players will move into the rankings and others will drop out, this provides a good snapshot of which players currently have the most NFL potential, based on our evaluations.

To see our top 10 players at each position, check out this article.

Note: Underclassmen are marked with an asterisk.


1. Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M*

Grade: 95

Garrett is the best pure pass-rusher in the 2017 draft. He played through an ankle injury for much of this season and still finished tied for sixth in the SEC with 15.0 tackles for loss (including 8.5 sacks). He has a lethal combination of first-step quickness, bend, power and hand-to-hand combat skills. After adding 10 pounds of muscle last offseason, he was stronger setting the edge versus the run.

2. Jonathan Allen, DT, Alabama

Grade: 94

Allen had 8.5 tackles for loss in his final five games. He's a true game-wrecker, with 15 quarterback hurries and 10.5 sacks. Allen's excellent combination of quickness and power makes him one of the best interior pass-rushers we've studied in this draft class. He constantly pushes the pocket and brings tremendous experience to the table, with 56 games played.

3. Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU*

Grade: 94

Fournette, who had a nagging ankle injury all season, finished with only 144 touches, far below the 319 he had the season before. That works to his benefit from a wear-and-tear standpoint. When fully healthy, Fournette is a big-play machine with a rare combination of size, power, agility and speed for the position. His angry running style is something at which to marvel, and it will translate well to the next level.
