Who are the top prospects in the 2019 draft?

From Baker Mayfield to Sam Darnold, last season saw an influx of rookie quarterbacks. Can the 2019 draft deliver another dominant passing class with long-term solutions for a handful of NFL teams?

Top signal-callers in this year's draft include Kyler Murray, Dwayne Haskins and Drew Lock. While Murray has been projected as a likely No. 1 selection, the Cardinals haven't given any indication which way they're leaning.

Among non-quarterbacks, many draft analysts expect Ohio State pass-rusher Nick Bosa to headline the class. Josh Allen, Quinnen Williams, Devin White and Ed Oliver should join him in the early-going on Thursday night.

Here's a quick breakdown of hot prospects to keep an eye on at every position:

Quarterbacks: Kyler Murray, Dwayne Haskins, Drew Lock
Running backs: Josh Jacobs, David Montgomery, Damien Harris
Wide receivers: Marquise Brown, A.J. Brown, N'Keal Harry
Tight ends: T.J. Hockenson, Noah Fant, Irv Smith Jr.
Offensive tackles: Jawaan Taylor, Andre Dillard, Jonah Williams
Offensive guards/centers: Garrett Bradbury, Elgton Jenkins, Erik McCoy
Defensive tackles: Quinnen Williams, Ed Oliver, Christian Wilkins
Edge: Nick Bosa, Josh Allen, Clelin Ferrell
Linebackers: Devin White, Devin Bush, Mack Wilson
Cornerbacks: Byron Murphy, Greedy Williams, Rock Ya-Sin
Safeties: Johnathan Abram, Taylor Rapp, Darnell Savage

What are the latest NFL mock drafts projecting?

Is Tampa Bay going to snag Devin White a top-five pick? Could Montez Sweat break into the top 10 as a high-upside linebacker? NFL.com's expert analysts have been putting together mock drafts for the past months to help answer those questions and more.
