With name, image and likeness rule changes and the transfer portal providing players more options than in the past, there are fewer underclassmen in this draft than in past years. There were 100 underclassmen granted special eligibility by the league in 2020 and 128 in 2021. This year only features 82. That said, the quality of this year’s additions is high. Among these rankings of my top 50 prospects available, 37 of them are underclassmen.
Sorry in advance to the fantasy-football and skill-position enthusiasts, but with the exception of a few stellar talents at the top, the bulk of the best players in the 2023 NFL draft play along the line of scrimmage, including above-average crops at edge rusher, tight end and center.
