Hot 150: Gil Brandt's top-ranked prospects for 2018 NFL Draft –

Before we know it, another crop of fresh talent will be hitting the NFL. With all the mock drafting and prognosticating that has gone on over the past couple of months, you would be forgiven for feeling a bit lost in the woods when it comes to this year’s class. So with the 2018 NFL Draft just days away (Round 1 kicks off on April 26), I’ve put together my list of the top 150 prospects poised to potentially impact teams across the league this fall.

Saquon Barkley – RB

School: Penn State | Year: Junior.

Penn State’s all-time leader in yards from scrimmage (5,038) has traits that in the past have led to All-Pro-caliber production at the NFL level. He set the school record for rushing touchdowns (43) in just three seasons. He’s the fourth Big Ten player to notch 3,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards in his career. And he’s a great character person.

Josh Rosen – QB

School: UCLA | Year: Junior.

I don’t have any questions about this young man with regard to the chatter about his character. A good athlete, Rosen has a strong arm and accuracy — he can make all the throws. By Year 2, he’ll be a successful starter in the NFL. I really like this player.

Sam Darnold – QB

School: USC | Year: Junior.

Darnold combines a quick release with very good accuracy and mobility. His 2017 numbers were a step down from 2016, but he was not working with a great receiver corps last season. Darnold has the ability to be a franchise quarterback and a factor in this league for years to come.

Baker Mayfield – QB
