This is the first time I've combined both seniors and underclassmen into a single top 10 across every position for the 2016 NFL draft. By "underclassmen" I simply refer to players who technically could return to school for the 2016 season. Those are true juniors and third-year sophomores.
But since we've reached the halfway point in the college football season, it's time to rank every draft-eligible player side by side. Things are sure to change, but this is where I have things now.
An asterisk means the player is a junior (one more season of eligibility), two asterisks means the player is a third-year sophomore (two more seasons of eligibility).
1. *Jared Goff, California
2. *Paxton Lynch, Memphis
3. Carson Wentz, North Dakota St.
4. Connor Cook, Michigan St.
5. *Seth Russell, Baylor
6. *Christian Hackenberg, Penn St.
7. *Cardale Jones, Ohio St.
8. Brandon Doughty, Western Kentucky
9. Cody Kessler, USC
10. Dak Prescott, Mississippi St.
Goff is the clear leader, though Lynch has made up ground. Wentz is currently out with a broken wrist, but that wasn't enough to change his ranking at this point.
