JACOB EASON
QB, WASHINGTON HUSKIES


Bleacher Report's Matt Miller says Washington redshirt junior Jacob Eason has the best arm among 2020 prospects.

Eason has a lot to prove this upcoming season, but he's not short on hype from draft analysts. In addition to Miller's praise, Eason has been mocked in the first round and has been ranked highly across "way too early" rankings. What makes the hype particularly notable is the fact that Eason hasn't even been assured the starting job at Washington, but when the dust settles we'd be stunned if Eason didn't take the first snap for the Huskies.

DEVONTA SMITH
WR, ALABAMA CRIMSON TIDE


Bleacher Report's Matt Miller ranks Alabama junior WR Devonta Smith as his WR9 ahead of the 2020 NFL Draft.

Smith (6'1/173) would be 99% of college teams' top wide receiver, but he's the third option for Alabama with Jerry Jeudy and Henry Ruggs leading the way. As a result of the super-talented wide receiver group, Smith won't have the typical production of a Round 1 or Round 2 receiver, but he's expected to test very well at the combine. It wouldn't be very surprising to see Smith's touchdown total to climb from six to the double digits in 2019.

HENRY RUGGS
WR, ALABAMA CRIMSON TIDE


Bleacher Report's Matt Miller calls Alabama junior WR Henry Ruggs the best slot receiver prospect.

Ruggs' speed -- he might run sub-4.30 at the combine --, savviness, and youth make Ruggs a high-end slot prospect. As a sophomore in 2018, Ruggs (6'0/183) scored 11 touchdowns in 14 games while averaging 16.1 yards per reception, which is an absurd YPR for a slot receiver. In addition to Ruggs, the Crimson Tide have Miller's best overall wide receiver prospect along with Devonta Smith and Jaylen Waddle. It must be fun to be Tua Tagovailoa.

J.K. DOBBINS
RB, OHIO STATE BUCKEYES


Bleacher Report's Matt Miller ranks Ohio State junior J.K. Dobbins as his RB4 ahead of the 2020 NFL Draft.

Dobbins (5'10/214) is arguably being a tad overlooked in this stacked 2020 skill position class, but he'll be the focal point of the 2019 Ohio State offense and will likely enter the pre-draft process with a Day 2 grade. As a sophomore with Dwayne Haskins, Dobbins reached 1,053 rushing yards (4.6 YPC) and 10 touchdowns while catching 26 passes for 263 yards.

KENNY WILLEKES
DL, MICHIGAN STATE SPARTANS


Per Pro Football Focus, Michigan State redshirt senior EDGE Kenny Willekes recorded 72 QB pressures in 2018.

Willekes (6'4/260) added 41 total stops and 78 tackles (20.5 for loss) during his redshirt junior season. Pro Football Focus gave him a 90.5 overall grade in 2018 but he opted to return to school for another year to try and improve his draft stock. Another productive season like 2018 would likely bump his draft stock up to the first round.

BRYCE HALL
DB, VIRGINIA CAVALIERS


Per Pro Football Focus, Virginia senior CB Bryce Hall allowed 1.06 yards per cover snap.

Hall (6'1/200) was one of the top corners in the country last season and allowed just a 69 passer rating while forcing an incompletion on 31.9 percent of opposing targets. Had he declared for the 2019 draft there's a decent chance he would have been the first one off the board. As long as he turns in a similar or better season in 2019, we can expect to hear Hall's name called on Day 1 of the 2020 NFL Draft.

DERRICK BROWN
DL, AUBURN TIGERS


Bleacher Report's Matt Miller ranked Auburn senior DT Derrick Brown No. 1 at the position on his too-early 2020 Big Board.

Miller also believes Brown (6'4/316) is the "most NFL ready" and is the best pass-rusher in the class. Brown would have likely been selected on Day 1 had he declared for the 2019 draft and barring injury or a catastrophic season he should retain that status. Brown was recently mocked at No. 6 overall by ESPN's Todd McShay in his 2020 mock draft, a pick that suggests McShay believes Brown will continue to ascend as a player.

DYLAN MOSES
LB, ALABAMA CRIMSON TIDE


In his too-early 2020 big board, Bleacher Report's Matt Miller forwarded Alabama junior LB Dylan Moses as the most pro-ready linebacker prospect.

Miller tosses all kinds of accolades Moses' way, including "biggest hype," "best traits," "best pass-rusher" and "best potential." He ranks the 6-foot-3, 235-pounder as the No. 1 linebacker prospect in the prospective 2020 class. This past season, Moses logged 86 tackles (10.0 for loss), 3.5 sacks and a forced fumble across 15 games played. SEC coaches bestowed him with second-team all-conference honors at the end of the campaign.Moses figures to be part of the Day 1 mix next spring should he declare.

TREVON DIGGS
DB, ALABAMA CRIMSON TIDE


Alabama senior CB Trevon Diggs is considered to be the best zone coverage corner among draft-eligible prospects by Bleacher Report's Matt Miller.

Diggs (6'2/199) is ranked second among draft-eligible corners on Miller's list, with Florida's C.J. Henderson leading the way. The senior cornerback considered leaving Alabama for the NFL this spring but ultimately decided to return, as his 2018 season was cut short by a broken foot suffered in a win over Arkansas in early October. Diggs is expected to combine with Patrick Surtain Jr. to form one of college football's best cornerback tandems this fall.

CHRISTOPHER HENDERSON
DB, FLORIDA GATORS


Bleacher Report's Matt Miller has Florida junior CB C.J. Henderson atop his list of the top draft-eligible cornerbacks in college football.

Henderson (6'1/191) is considered to be the best cornerback in a draft class that has the potential to be loaded at the position. In Miller's opinion the Florida junior is not only the most NFL-ready corner, but he also has the most potential of any draft-eligible CB. Last season Henderson started all 13 games and accounted for 38 total tackles (five for loss), three sacks, two interceptions and two forced fumbles. At minimum he should be a Day 1 draft pick next spring if he continues to produce as he did in his first two seasons at Florida.

KENNETH MURRAY
LB, OKLAHOMA SOONERS


Oklahoma junior LB Kenneth Murray is considered by Bleacher Report's Matt Miller to be the third-best linebacker prospect in the 2020 draft class.

Murray (6'2/238) earned second team All-Big 12 honors in 2018, as he accounted for 155 total tackles (71 solo; 12.5 for loss), 4.5 sacks and two pass breakups for the Big 12 champions. Among his best performances was a 28-tackle outing in Oklahoma's win over Army in September. Murray had nine games of ten tackles or more in 2018, and his name is one to know well in advance of the 2020 NFL Draft.

ISAIAH SIMMONS
LB, CLEMSON TIGERS


ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. believes that Clemson redshirt junior Isaiah Simmons is a "perfect" linebacker for today's NFL.

Simmons is a former safety -- and it's a position that he still sort of plays in a hybrid role for the Tigers -- and you see it in his coverage ability. "He is extremely athletic and can run sideline to sideline," Kiper writes. "He had 89 total tackles and 9.5 tackles for loss last season." Simmons is getting a lot of hype coming into the year -- many were surprised he didn't leave as a redshirt sophomore -- and he has a chance to be one of the first defenders off the board in 2020 if he doesn't comeback for his fifth year.

CEEDEE LAMB
WR, OKLAHOMA SOONERS


Oklahoma junior WR CeeDee Lamb ranks 14th on ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr's Big Board for the 2020 NFL Draft.

Lamb is one of five wideouts who rank on Kiper's Big Board, and the only one who ranks higher than the Sooner wideout is Alabama's Jerry Jeudy; who comes in first. Lamb put up big numbers last year (65/1,118/11) and he's going to be the top target with Marquis "Hollywood" Brown off for the NFL. It wouldn't be a huge surprise to us if both Lamb and Jeudy were top 10 picks next April.

DERRICK BROWN
DL, AUBURN TIGERS


ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. ranks Auburn senior DT Derrick Brown 14th overall in his Big Board for the 2020 NFL Draft.

Brown decided to come back for his senior year -- likely at least in part due to the loaded defensive line class of last year -- and many believe he might be the top defensive tackle in the 2020 group. " Brown is still raw as a pass-rusher -- he gets into the backfield because of his power more than his finesse -- but I'm hoping to see a more refined player after he came back to school," Kiper writes. If he does, he's a first-round lock, and he might be a contender to be the first defensive lineman altogether drafted next April.

TREVON DIGGS
DB, ALABAMA CRIMSON TIDE


ESPN's Mel Kiper ranks Alabama senior CB Trevon Diggs 11th on his Big Board for the 2020 NFL Draft.

Diggs ranks as the second best corner on Kiper's list, just behind Florida's CJ Henderson. The 6-foot-2, 199-pound corner was limited to just six games because of a foot injury, as Kiper notes, but he's expected to be fully healthy for the 2019 season. There's also word that Diggs could play some "star" in 2019; a nickel/safety hybrid position. He's considered one of the better zone corner in the class, but showing versatility could see him targeted as a potential safety, as well.

JUSTIN HERBERT
QB, OREGON DUCKS


ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. writes that he would "like to see more consistency out of [Oregon senior QB Justin Herber] in 2019."

"He has all of the makings of a No. 1 overall pick -- great size, a big arm to make every throw, limited interceptions, good athleticism," Kiper writes before bringing out the claws to point out forgettable performances against San Jose State and Bowling Green. The ESPN analyst goes so far as to write that the 6-foot-6, 233-pound Herbert "misses some throws that first-round picks just can't miss." Kiper's hesitance with the senior -- whom he ranks as the No. 10 draft-eligible prospect for the spring -- is something that we completely understand. He left us just slightly cool in 2018. That said, if Herbert puts it all together (on a hyped Oregon team) from the fall campaign through the winter and spring evaluating process, he has the upside to be drafted first overall.

ANDREW THOMAS
T, GEORGIA BULLDOGS


ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. writes that Georgia junior T Andrew Thomas' "versatility to play multiple positions will make him stand out to (NFL) teams."

Thomas (6'5/320) began his UGA career at right tackle before moving to left tackle as a true sophomore. Kiper ranks the Bulldogs standout as the No. 9 draft-eligible prospect for the spring and the No. 2 draft-eligible tackle, trailing him behind only Stanford's Walker Little on the positional front. Bleacher Report's Matt Miller likewise slots in Thomas as his No. 2 tackle behind Little, but deems him to be the most pro-ready tackle in the prospective 2020 class.

Dude has great size for the position, but I still Dylan Moses over everyone else for that position in next year’s class:

PADDY FISHER
LB, NORTHWESTERN WILDCATS


Pro Football Focus gave Northwestern redshirt junior LB Paddy Fisher a 91.2 run-defense grade.

Fisher (6'4/245) is one of the better run defenders in the country, enough to be Bleacher Report's Matt Miller's No. 2 linebacker in the 2020 class. The redshirt junior made 63 solo tackles last year after racking up an impressive 65 tackles as a freshman. If there's room to improve, Fisher can step up his pass coverage game, but he's on track to be a Day 1 or Day 2 pick next year.
