Power ranking the early enrollees starts with two basic criteria:
1. Position on the depth chart after the spring.
2. Difficulty to break into said depth chart.
The only thing between the previous season and the post-spring roster is the practice field. It doesn't matter how talented you were in high school, and it certainly doesn't matter where you personally think you should be.
All that matters is a player's total skill, which is simply talent plus hard work. Someone can know how to cover a route, but if he can't physically do it, he is going to have a comfy spot on the bench with his name on it.
This spring, dozens of early enrollees earned spots on the two-deep and four-deep charts all over the country.
Here are the top 25 ranked from lowest to highest.
