4. WR Zay Flowers, Boston College

Flowers is arguably the most dominant receiver left in the ACC this season. He and Ross will battle that out.

5. DT Tyler Davis, Clemson

Davis is a monster in the middle and also a gap-shooter, which the NFL loves.

*****

6. DB Bubba Bolden, Miami

Bolden is a hitter but also rangy and should have a massive impact on the Miami secondary.

7. OL Zion Johnson, Boston College

Johnson is a prototype offensive tackle with great feet and athleticism.

*****

8. CB Andrew Booth, Clemson

Booth has had his ups and downs but his physical skills and ability to close have him on the NFL radar.

*****

9. RB Ty Chandler, North Carolina

No one believes me on this one, but just watch. Chandler will impress in a big way this season.

*****

10. OL Alec Lindstrom, Boston College

Lindstrom could be the best center in the country that no one knows about.
