Top 60 Prospects in the 2013 NFL Draft

USA TODAY Sports

With the deadline for early entrants to declare for the draft passing on Tuesday, it is now the time to really start putting together an ordered list of the top prospects. This attempt at a list of the top 60 players is not the order I think they will be picked, but rather the order they would be picked if it was simply based on talent, and not on team needs and positional value. I have broken the players down into groups of players that I believe are worthy of being a: top five pick, top ten pick, first round pick, second round pick. You will notice that there are more than 32 players that I have being worthy of top ten picks and less than ten players that I have being worthy of top ten picks. That is because this year, I believe the draft is very good in the 10 to 50 range but outside of the top eight prospects, there are no elite guys.
