Top 50 NFL draft prospect rankings
USC's Agholor, UConn's Byron Jones biggest movers on board
Time can be a dangerous thing when it comes to ranking football players, which is why I've tried to limit the movement on this final adjustment to my Top 50 prospects list for the 2015 NFL Draft. But there are a few notable moves.
Perhaps the most notable is USC wide receiver Nelson Agholor, who now is in the top 30 and my fifth-ranked wideout overall. The more I read my notes on him, the more I believe in his ability to contribute right away in the NFL. I've moved him up four spots as a result, ahead of Jaelen Strong and Breshad Perriman.
Agholor is one of 10 wide receivers in my Top 50. Ranking them was one of the tougher chores in putting this list together. Last year's WR draft class was loaded, but this year's class is not far behind.
There are two new names on the list: Clemson DT Grady Jarrett and Penn State OT Dovovan Smith. Jarrett lacks ideal size but I love his motor, quickness and toughness. Smith was on the list previously and I believe he is worthy of a second-round pick.
