Top 50 NFL draft prospect rankings
Two prospects join ratings as combine revelations alter list
The NFL Scouting Combine is the first experience for most NFL decision makers to see the prospects in the draft live. I've spent the last few months studying the 2015 NFL Draft prospects on tape, but it's always helpful to get official heights, weights and speed numbers, not to mention getting the opportunity to see these players move around live in person on the Lucas Oil Stadium field.
While you never want to get carried away with what goes on in Indianapolis at the combine, it can help break ties when you have multiple players with similar grades. With that in mind, I have made a few adjustments in my Top 50 list, including the additions of UCLA linebacker Eric Kendricks and Wake Forest cornerback Kevin Johnson. I've also made a couple of other notable changes, including Florida's Dante Fowler leapfrogging Nebraska's Randy Gregory as the draft's top edge rusher and Florida's D.J. Humphries moving ahead of Pittsburgh's T.J. Clemmings as the draft's top offensive tackle.
