CLASS OF 2023 RANKINGS: Rivals100
RIVALS CAMP SERIES: Info/coverage on 2021 camp series
1. CB Derek Stingley Jr., LSU
Stingley is the best cornerback in the country and arguably the best since Jalen Ramsey. He should be a top-five pick.
2. OT Evan Neal, Alabama
Neal is a freaky athlete and this is higher than many have him ranked, but I think he’s more special than Penei Sewell.
3. DT DeMarvin Leal, Texas A&M
Leal is a monster who can play end or tackle. He should easily be a top-10 pick.
4. LB Christian Harris, Alabama
Harris has great size and his closing speed is nasty. He’s a top-15 pick and my top-ranked linebacker.
5. TE Jalen Wydermyer, Texas A&M
This is higher than many have him as well but Wydermyer is a first-round talent if he keeps progressing.
6. CB Kaiir Elam, Florida
Elam is a bit raw in some areas but he has all the athletic skill to be a first-rounder.
7. WR George Pickens, Georgia
His knee injury doesn’t help but he could be back later in the season and cement that first-round status he had.
8. OT Kenyon Green, Texas A&M
Is he a tackle? I’m not sure, but I know he’s going to be a valued lineman even if he’s projected as a guard.
9. DT Jordan Davis, Georgia
Davis is an elite defensive tackle who can crush the pocket.
10. QB Matt Corral, Ole Miss
Corral makes some mistakes and takes some chances but he has special arm talent.
