1. Shelton Gibson 5'11 191 WR Junior
- Gibson was an electric playmaker for the Mountaineers. A speed demon that can blow the top off any defense he faces. A go route specialist that can high point the ball like a taller receiver despite his small stature. Ball skills are a plus. Not the most technically proficient route runner in the world. He can flat out fly. DeDe Westbrook without the off field issues.
2. Rasul Douglas 6'2 209 CB Senior
- Douglas is possibly the most underrated corner in this year's class. He's the veteran leader of the stingy Mountaineers defense that led the Big 12 in most defensive categories. A tall and lanky corner with plus athleticism. Has shut down nearly every receiver that has dared to face him. He was one of the best corner prospects at the Senior Bowl. Has the size every team will love. Impact defender. Didn't have the best workout at the Combine but has just enough functional speed to get by.
1. Derek Barnett 6'3 259 DE Junior
- Barnett could have pitched his claim of being the best defensive lineman in the SEC and not get laughed at. He was a dominant force for the Volunteers. A relentless motor and work ethic are major plus to his game. Speed and agility is at an elite level. He has declared for the draft. Surpassed Reggie White's school record of 32 career sacks in the bowl game. Nebraska wanted no part of him in the Music City Bowl. Met with the Titans at the Combine.
2. Alvin Kamara 5'10 194 RB Junior
- Kamara is one of the best running backs in the country. A speed merchant that has shown the ability to run inside the tackles. Athleticism is among the best in the class. A big play generator. Carried the bulk of the Volunteers offense once Jalen Hurd made his ghastly and utterly disgraceful exit from the team midseason. Excellent receiver out of the backfield. Has met with the Titans at the Combine.
3. Josh Dobbs 6'3 216 QB Senior
- It has been interesting to see that despite some skepticism about sticking at QB, Dobbs has stuck at the position throughout the process. He was the best QB at the Senior Bowl by a far margin. Athletic enough to play receiver. Could be a possible developmental QB that takes some time to develop like Tyrod Taylor. A possible outcome for him would be a trick play / uber athlete like Antwan Randle-El or Josh Cribbs.
4. Cam Sutton 5'11 188 CB Senior
- Sutton has more than made up for his medical questions during the process by showing up very well at the Senior Bowl and at the Combine. Was in the running for the title of best corner in the country entering 2016 but the injury has dinged his stock a bit. He's a fun guy to scout as he's very fundamentally sound. If he clears the medical portion with teams, he's a lock for a Day 2 pick.
1. Forrest Lamp 6'4 309 OL RS Senior
- Lamp was last seen having a great week in Mobile before unfortunately picking up an injury that caused him to miss practice and the game itself. Strength is a plus. Football IQ is above average as well. Character and work ethic are a plus. Four year starter at left tackle. A two star recruit that developed into one of the best in the country. He's projected to go in the latter stages of the first round.
2. Taywan Taylor 5'11 203 WR Senior
- He's a quick twitch explosive athlete that is ideal for the slot position. Broke a ton of records at WKU. Had a pretty solid outing in Mobile. Could fly up the boards with a decent showing in Indy as high as the third round. Dominated Alabama's talented secondary in the 2016 opener even if his team didn't do so well.
1. Patrick Mahomes 6'2 225 QB Junior
Physically he looks the part of an NFL QB but the mental aspects of the game need some work i.e. field reading, pocket awareness, etc. The Red Raider program isn't exactly friendly to the idea that the QBs can successfully transition to a more conservative gameplan in the pros. Mahomes has been going as high as the top 15 in some mocks despite major system fit issues. Has big league talent to make it.
