As the college football season comes to an end, we get closer and closer to championship season and after that, it’s NFL draft season. This year’s draft has elite talent on defense and some explosive offensive talent. Here are my top five NFL draft prospects.
Kayvon Thibodeaux, EDGE
Kayvon Thibodeaux is easily the best player in this draft. He’s a force of nature unlike anything seen before. Standing 6’2 and weighing 250 lbs, he possesses elite power, and athleticism. He consistently shows the ability to beat offensive lineman in a variety of ways. In an NFL where many teams run option reads, EDGE players (pass rushers who either play defensive end or outside linebacker depending on their team’s defensive scheme) need to have the ability to stay at home, run down the line of scrimmage, set the edge without being out-flanked. Thibodeaux checks all those boxes. In just seven games this year, Thibodeaux already has six sacks and 10 tackles for loss. Ridiculous. He’s undoubtedly the best player in this draft.
Kyle Hamilton, Safety
