Which NFL player will be the next MVP?
Bleacher Tracker NFL draft prospects and potential first-round draft picks are ranked based on their skill set and college production.
We’ve got the top players, along with a team-by-team breakdown of the top prospects and how each team sees them in the upcoming draft.
NFL draft prospect rankings are based on the following metrics: NFL Media draft grades, which grades each prospect by a composite of the three major college recruiting services.
Scout.com’s draft grades are based entirely on scouting reports and combine data.
NFL Network draft grades and draft projections are based primarily on team-specific information from NFL Network analysts and analysts from other teams.
The projections are only a rough guide to the future, as the draft will ultimately be filled with so many talent types, players and situations that there’s no way to know for certain who will make the leap from college to the NFL.
If a prospect is selected in the first round, we will grade him as a first-rounder, and if he’s selected in rounds two through four, we’ll grade him a second-rounder.
All projections are from NFL Media experts and will be updated as new information becomes available.
NFL Draft: Top prospects and projections NFL.com draft analyst Gil Brandt and Bleacher contributor Chris Simms have assembled a list of the projected first- and second-round picks in the 2016 NFL draft.
If you are a fantasy football owner, the best way to track this class is to create your own mock draft based on which prospects you think will go where and how.
Below is a breakdown of each player, with their projected draft position based on ESPN.com: 1.
Tennessee Titans: OT Michael Oher (6-foot-5, 306 pounds) — He’ll be the Titans’ starting left tackle in 2016.
If Oher can maintain his strong performance, he could be a first round pick.
The team believes he can be a starter at both guard spots in the NFL and the Titans may take a flier on that position.
The Titans are expected to be very aggressive in free agency and will likely target some of their young talent in the draft.
Oher was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft and was the starter at left tackle for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Los Angeles Chargers: WR Sammy Watkins (6’1, 215 pounds) – The Chargers are expected, and probably will be, aggressive in their free agency pursuit of talented wide receivers in the 2017 NFL Draft.
Watkins was the top-ranked wide receiver in the nation in 2015.
Indianapolis Colts: WR Marquise Goodwin (6′-2, 207 pounds) Goodwin is a dynamic receiver who can stretch the field, and the Colts hope he can take advantage of the opportunities they have in Indy.
Goodwin was a first team All-Big Ten selection as a senior at Notre Dame.
New Orleans Saints: QB Dak Prescott (6′, 2nd round) – New Orleans is loaded at quarterback, and Prescott has the potential to be a franchise quarterback.
Prescott was the fourth overall pick of the 2017 draft by the Dallas Cowboys.
Cincinnati Bengals: WR DeVante Parker (6-, 4th round) Parker is a physical threat who has good speed.
He was the sixth overall pick by the Atlanta Falcons in 2016 and is a versatile player who can play all three receiver positions.
Kansas City Chiefs: OT Jake Matthews (6, 305 pounds) Matthews has the ability to move between guard and tackle for Kansas City, but his athleticism could be better.
He could end up as a third-string left tackle.
Pittsburgh Steelers: RB Melvin Gordon (6′) 3.0 (6ft 2, 220lbs) Gordon was the second overall pick, but the Steelers are not expected to draft a running back.
He’s more of a receiving back, but he is a potential first round talent.
San Diego Chargers: OT Anthony Steen (6.25, 5’11, 306lbs) Steen was the seventh overall pick and the Chargers are looking for a right tackle, which they did with the sixth pick in 2016 when they took Steen with the No
