2019 NFL Draft: Houtz’s top-5 prospects at each position pre-combine

New, comments

The NFL Draft is coming.

Oregon State v Ohio State

In a little over one week, NFL prospects (and Sutton) will gather in Indianapolis to showcase their skills before all 32-NFL teams. This is considered the Super Bowl for NFL scouts and fans of the draft as well.

Here, teams get to see how each player stacks up with the competition. Players’ stock will continue to rise but unfortunately for some, they will fall. But for many, however, this is their opportunity to show NFL teams they belong.

I am NOT an expert. In fact, I am nothing more than a guy who loves football. I have watched about as much film as you’d expect from a father (expecting baby #2) and a guy that works 60+ hour work weeks.

With the draft a little more than two months away, I decided to put together my top-5 prospects at each position. This isn’t perfect, and will probably change a few times between now and the draft.

Here are Houtz’s way too early top-5 players at each position in the 2019 NFL Draft.
