Now that we’ve finished up on the positional rankings, it’s time to put all those names in a hat together and rank them regardless of position. It is kind of hard, comparing a running back to a defensive tackle, but it comes down to this – if both these players were available, who would I pick regardless of my team needs? The top two guys on my list, I consider generational prospects.
If you want to read about any of them, I have in-depth analyses on every single one of them among my positional rankings. So make sure to check that out as well!
In episode 53 of The Defy Life Podcast, the guys discuss the NBA playoffs, NBA regular season awards, Dez Bryant’s legacy as a Cowboy and more!
Here we finally are! After spending more than a month on the rankings and analyses of the top prospects at each other position, we are down to the final one – the quarterbacks.
Unlike a lot of scouting pages and grading systems, I don’t weigh accuracy, arm strength, leadership or any of these abilities the same. I look at every factor and grade the total package.
This group of signal-callers includes six potential first rounders and there’s a solid chance four of the top five picks end up being spent on QBs. After that, there’s a lot of different opinions, on who the next guys are. I believe all of my top ten players have a shot at starting for an NFL franchise some day and a few guys at the top could be special players.
I really wanted to go in-depth with these quarterbacks, especially the top guys.

We are about to wrap this thing up! After we’ve talked about the running backs and linebackers, wide receivers and cornerbacks, offensive and defensive lines and now tight-ends just recently, we are down to the safeties, before finishing up with the QBs.
This safety group includes a bunch of different players and body-types. Some of them might lack the speed for a high-safety role, others might not have the physicality to come down in the box, and then there’s a bunch of them, who have the versatility to take on different tasks. The NFL is looking for matchup pieces and the safety position has never been this diverse.
In my rankings, I have two safeties, who I believe are both top ten prospects. After that, a lot of the evaluations depend strongly on taste and scheme fit. I could see up to ten safeties drafted within the first two days in Dallas.
Voch Lombardi is one the best in the business of NFL prospect evaluation. Next up is Florida State safety Derwin James.
We have come to the final three positional rankings, leading up to the draft. This week I’m going to talk about the tight-ends and safeties, before finishing up with the quarterbacks. Let’s start with the big pass-catchers.
Talking about this position group is always interesting, because there are so many different types of players. You have the true Y-tight-ends, who play in-line and are big parts of a team’s rushing attack, or what basically are big slot receivers nowadays, who don’t want to block at all, plus everything in-between.
There are six tight-ends, who I believe are worthy of a selection through the first two days of the draft and one, who I have a late first-round grade on.
