Most years, teams and analysts alike only have first-round grades on 12 to 20 players.
This draft may be the exception to the rule.
The receiver class has good depth, with Mel Kiper of ESPN predicting as many as six who could be drafted in the first round. Add the top four quarterbacks, the top-heavy offensive tackle class and a fairly deep cornerback class, and it’s easy to see why teams and analysts would have a higher-than-usual number of first-round grades this year.
