Which NFL Draft Prospects are the Top 10 Players in the 2018 NFL Draft?

With the NFL Draft officially underway, there are still plenty of draft hopefuls still in the hunt for NFL attention.

But, there’s also a ton of talented players still in limbo.

Here’s a look at the players in the 2017 NFL Draft class with the best odds of landing on the first round.


Malik McDowell, QB, Texas A&M With the Aggies looking to rebuild their offensive line, Malik McDowells future is now in question.

But he might not even be the first quarterback taken in this year’s draft.

ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. has McDowell with a 2-4-5 record, with an 82.5 grade from PFF and an overall grade of 85.9, with a 70.6 passer rating and a 109.3 passer efficiency rating.

But McDowell is only the seventh QB in the history of the draft to earn a grade of 80 or better from PFR, and he has one year of eligibility remaining.

The 6-foot-5, 215-pound McDowell has a solid arm, but he can be a little off on deep throws.

McDowell struggled with accuracy last season, with just five touchdown passes in 34 career starts.

He could be a very good pick at No. 5, but it’s hard to see him landing on top of a team.


Kevin Dodd, RB, Washington With just a 3.2-yard average per carry, Kevin Dodd is a big-play threat that could make a splash in the NFL.

However, Dodd struggled in the early part of the season with his footwork, with him not seeing the field in six games.

He has one season of eligibility left, but with the Seahawks in the mix for him, it’s not an easy pick to make.


Corey Davis, WR, LSU With five career catches of 20-plus yards, Corey Davis has a huge skill set.


he’s only 5-foot, 11-inches tall, and doesn’t run very well.

While he may not have elite speed or speed to break a tackle, Davis is an athletic receiver that could get you a big play.

Davis also has a good chance of landing with the Jets in the first or second round, but the Jets are a rebuilding team.


Isaiah Oliver, QB/WR, Utah With a strong arm, strong footwork and the ability to beat defenders at the line of scrimmage, Isaiah Oliver has the potential to be a great prospect.

However the Cowboys are still rebuilding in 2018, the Cowboys might not have the assets to land him.


Trevon Diggs, RB/WR/TE, Vanderbilt With 496 yards and five touchdowns on only 22 carries, Trevon DeKeyser is a very effective running back in the SEC.

The Lions don’t have the resources to add a pass-catching back to their receiving corps.

However with a big arm, DeKeysers potential is there.

DeKeys, who is 6-feet tall, 195 pounds and has the ability of a running back, can be an elite player.


Jaelen Strong, WR/TE/DE, Texas Tech With only a few catches of 10-plus yard receiving, Jaelens Strong has plenty of upside.

However he doesn’t have elite physical tools, and his lack of speed has him being overshadowed by more athletic players like DeKeys.

He is a player with the potential for a big year in the pros, but for now, he’s just another player with a lot of upside to watch.


Josh Doctson, WR; RB/DE/OLB, TCU The best receiver in this class, Josh Doctsson could be the next great player to emerge in the college football world.

However as of right now, the wide receiver prospects at TCU aren’t very strong.

Doctson has been one of the best receivers in the country since entering the season, but his lack the physical tools and speed to consistently be an impact player.

Doctson has a great combination of size and speed, but lacks the physical strength to be an NFL player.


Tyler Ervin, WR-CB, Georgia Tech The only corner in the class with NFL experience, Tyler Erwin could be one of college football’s best receivers if he improves his pass-rushing technique.

However due to the amount of talented receivers in this draft class, there is a chance Ervin could fall out of the top 10 and fall further behind the top prospects.


Aaron Murray, WR: Georgia Tech; RB: UCLA If you haven’t watched Aaron Murray since he was a freshman in 2017, you should.

Murray had a great season for the Bruins, recording 59 catches for 971 yards and four touchdowns.

Murray also had an incredible 94.9 passer rating, with 13 touchdowns and one interception.

However Murray struggled with
