It’s finally here! The NFL Draft, pushed back to May in order to produce big ratings during “sweeps week,” is actually upon us, starting on Thursday night with round one. While the extra two weeks has made it seem like it’s taken forever for the draft to get here, it has provided plenty of time for preparation. NFL teams are so ready to go, flooded with information, that some took this past weekend off, heading to Vegas for a little R&R. At cover32, it’s provided ample time to break down each position in the draft. In case you missed any of our top-10 lists during the past few weeks, or just want to have them all in one handy place, below are our rankings for every offensive position. Brush up and be prepared for Thursday, Friday and Saturday: QUARTERBACKS It’s the most important position in football. Who is ready to be the face of an NFL franchise? Here’s the top 10 signal callers in the draft. RUNNING BACKS Some think it’s a dying position, but teams still need someone who can get the tough yards. Here are the top 10 ball carriers available.
