Our top five prospect list was heavily skewed toward pass rushers but now we're finally seeing a little mix of positions with a wide receiver, a tackle, and a cornerback on our list. Interesting that Sheldon Rankins comes in at No. 6 overall while A'Shawn Robinson hasn't even made the list year. That shows Rankins is obviously the clear favorite DT among the two. And obviously Saints fans would still take a talented wide receiver if he was available, even over a pass rusher like Emmanuel Ogbah.
We'll begin voting for prospects 11-15 very shortly so stay tuned.
