2015 NFL Scouting Combine? Check. Free-agent signing period? Check. 2015 NFL Draft? Check.

Now, my fantasy football friends, things start to get real. With a clearer picture of how NFL rosters will look, now is the first time this offseason we can project player rankings with confidence. Among the questions that have been answered, we now know the top wide receiver in Oakland, the No. 1 running back in San Diego and some of the big uglies who will block ahead of Mark Ingram in New Orleans. We also know that the quarterback spot is as deep as ever, while the number of true featured runners continues to shrink across the league.

Those are just a few of the things you should remember when scanning my first post-draft Top 100, which doesn't have a quarterback listed until the late No. 20s (or Round 3 of a 10-team draft). You'll also see a whole lot of backs and wideouts in the top 20, but just one tight end in the top 45. And you know who that is, right? (Sorry, Jimmy Graham).

Enjoy, and feel free to leave your approvals or criticisms in the comments section below!
