With the NFL draft hours away, Saquon Barkley appears to be in a tier alone at No. 1. But who will follow him in the second tier? Another stud running back from a deep class? Perhaps the fastest-rising wide receiver? The NFL draft will provide the last key piece in our prospect puzzle before rookie drafts begin almost immediately in leagues like Ryan McDowell’s Kitchen Sink. And the draft does have a large influence. Blair Andrews recently demonstrated the difference in WR NFL breakout age for those drafted in the top 100 picks versus those drafted later. My tiers are based on research from the terrific cast of writers who’ve been working on the draft project all spring.
