We are just 48 hours away from the 2018 NFL Draft, and NFL Network draft guru Mike Mayock has ramped up the excitement by releasing his list of top 100 players available when the draft kicks off on Thursday night in primetime. Mayock is consistently one of the most accurate draft analysts in the mainstream, so when he speaks on where a player ranks or where they could be selected, it is worth listening to.

On Tuesday, Mayock’s top 100 dropped which, to the surprise of few, featured Penn State running back Saquon Barkley as the top available player.

Sitting at No. 2 was Quenton Nelson, a guard from Notre Dame who is a projected top 10 pick, while NC State defensive end Bradley Chubb, Georgia linebacker Roquan Smith, and Alabama defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick round out the top five. Sam Darnold is the top quarterback available, ranked as the No. 7 overall prospect by Mayock.

Where does your favorite prospect land and who should your team be targetting when the draft rolls around?
