NCAA Football: SEC Championship-Georgia vs Auburn Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

In edition to my mock drafts that I will be updating as much as possible, I will be keeping up with my personal positional rankings. This, much like the mock drafts, is more of a fun exercise to do however, these are my real rankings based on game film I’ve watched. So far, I have been very impressed with this RB class, DT class and LB class (Roquan Smith is special; quickly becoming one of my favorites in this draft, top 10 talent). I have not been liking what I’ve seen from the OT and the TE classes, in particular the OT class. I do see a lot of potential in the interior o-line (which is great news for the phins) but need to still go through a lot of tape. So, please keep in mind this list will certainly be evolving and changing throughout the next couple months as I dive into more game tape. With that said, I hope you enjoy it and I hope this introduces you to many new prospects and most likely future Dolphins picks. As always, thanks for reading.
