CLASS OF 2017

Marvin Wilson - Florida State

Wilson is done for the season but has had a very solid career despite Florida State's on-field struggles. He could be a first-rounder and, overall, he’s lived up to the hype.

Grade: B+

Aubrey Solomon - Michigan

Solomon hasn’t panned out as expected. He’s shown a few flashes here and there but overall he hasn’t come close to being the pocket crusher we expected.

Grade: C-

Tyler Shelvin - LSU

OK, Shelvin isn’t playing as he opted out of the season, but he’s had a solid enough career. He’s a run-stuffer and we knew it. Shelvin could be a second- or third-round value.

Grade: B-

CLASS OF 2019

Antonio Alfano - Colorado

Wow, this has been bad. He left Alabama without doing anything and has been in trouble at Colorado as well. His on-field performance can’t be graded so this is an off-field grade.

Grade: F

Christopher Hinton - Michigan

Hinton is starting to show signs of life at Michigan. It’s too early to see how good he will be, but so far he’s been average.

Grade: B

CLASS OF 2020

Bryan Bresee - Clemson

Bresee is off to a great start as a true freshman at Clemson. He's already cracked the starting lineup and is making an impact.

Grade: A-
