NCAA Football: Texas Christian at Oklahoma Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Here is my second edition of my positional rankings and I have pretty much changed rankings across the board. I have Yosuah Nijman entering my OT rankings and though there’s talk he’s not declaring, I am including him in my list because so far he’s been one of the most impressive tackles I’ve scouted; I think he should declare. Another new member of my list is center Lamont Gaillard from Georgia. I have really only got two games into his film breakdown but I am came away liking what I’ve seen so far. He’s certainly not perfect, has things he needs to clean up but I think the potential and the talent I’ve seen in him. My third biggest change was adding Ogbonnia Okoronkwo from Oklahoma to my linebackers list. It was an absolute crime that I did not have him on my first edition and I want to apologize to you all for that. He’s a terrific prospect and really if he was 6-5 not 6-0 he would be a top 10 pick. I still think he ends up a first rounder but his size really limits him. Anyways, go through the list and tell what you all think. Thanks!
