1. QB Sam Howell, North Carolina
It’s a battle between Howell and Spencer Rattler for QB1 in the county next season, so Howell should easily be a first-rounder.
2. Justyn Ross, Clemson
NFL teams will watch carefully now that he's medically cleared but Ross is back near the top of many boards.
3. Ikem Ekwonu, NC State
Not many know about him nationally, but Ekwonu is so efficient and physical. He doesn’t make mistakes.
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.
