2012 NFL Draft: Position Rankings After the Underclassmen Declarations

A record 65 underclassmen have declared for the 2012 NFL draft, shattering the previous record of 56, which was set last year.

Now that the declaration deadline has passed, and we know exactly which players are staying in school and which ones are ready to make millions in the NFL, it’s time to start figuring out how all of the top prospects really stack up.

With the Senior Bowl coming up in a week and then the NFL combine and pro day part of the process to follow after that, a lot is surely going to change in the next couple of months. Different players will see their stocks rise and fall as we continue the countdown until draft weekend, which will once again take place in late April.

I’ll probably be putting out a complete top 100 prospects list some time after the NFL combine, but for now, here’s a look at how I think the top prospects currently stack up by position as we move into the postseason phase of the evaluation process.

I also included some very early and preliminary position rankings for the 2013 NFL draft, as we now know which players will be heading back to school for the 2012 season.
