Sections Advertisement The Draft Wire 300: Ranking the top prospects in the 2019 NFL draft Share this article After yet another marathon of all-star games, workouts, interviews and visits, we’ve finally made it to draft week. The 2019 NFL draft is just a few days away, so it’s time to unveil Draft Wire’s complete prospect rankings for this year’s class. It’s a fantastic year to need defensive line help. 24 prospects earned first-round grades from me this year, and 11 of them were either edge defenders or interior defensive linemen (including the top four players on my board). If you need a pass-catcher, there’s plenty of blue-chip talent and strong depth into the middle rounds at both wide receiver and tight end.
