The NFL draft is upon us, and it’s time to dive into who’s making the most money this year.
Here’s what to expect.
Here are the top 10 players on the market.
The draft order isn’t final.
A.J. Cann, WR, Texas A&MThe 6-foot-2, 190-pound Cann will have a big role for Texas A &M this season, but he’s the favorite to go in the top five of the first round.
He had the best year of his career in 2017, with 949 yards and three touchdowns in 13 games.
He has good speed and quickness, and he’s been an efficient receiver with four games with more than 60 yards.
He’s also a physical playmaker, with 10 tackles for loss, a sack and three interceptions.
It’s hard to imagine the Cowboys cutting him this year, but if he plays well enough for his team to go after him, he could go high.
Jared Goff, QB, CaliforniaThe No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft, Goff could get a bigger contract than he is worth this season.
He was one of the most explosive quarterbacks in the draft, and with the Rams already planning to play with Goff at quarterback, it could take a big hit.
But he was a good athlete, and the Rams have a good young quarterback situation.
Goff has more than 20 career touchdowns, and his play in 2018 helped the Rams to a 6-9 record.
He could go in Round 2 or even the top four if he does well for his new team.
Duke Johnson, DT, Virginia TechThe 6’3, 307-pound Johnson is the No. 4 overall pick.
He missed the entire season after tearing his ACL in August, but in 2017 he made strides with his conditioning and was a leader on the field.
He went from a guy who struggled to stay on the same page to one of college football’s best defensive tackles, and if he continues to develop as a player, he might be a top-five pick in 2018.
Jermaine Eluemunor, CB, Florida StateThe 6′-1, 195-pound Eluemanor has been the best cornerback in the country for years.
He led the ACC with 12 interceptions last season, and was one for all three touchdowns he intercepted.
If he can get off to a good start in 2018, he has a shot to be the No and 2 overall picks in next year’s NFL draft.
Malik McDowell, CB/S, FloridaThe 6ft.
4, 185-pound McDowell has been a revelation in the NFL over the past few years, and has been compared to former New England Patriots corner Darrelle Revis.
He is also considered one of NFL’s best pass-rushers, and could be the best defensive tackle in the 2018 draft.
Jalen Ramsey, OT, AlabamaRamsey has played well as a rookie, with the Crimson Tide having a very solid pass protection unit.
He should have a strong second season in Alabama, and is a candidate to go early in the second round.
Samaje Perine, OT/G, LSUThe 6′, 330-pound Perine has been dominant since he entered the NFL in 2016, and there’s a chance that his production will continue to rise as the year goes on.
The Lions have a very good offensive line, and Perine is likely to be a good fit on the line, with a lot of talent on the right side.
He needs to be more consistent, but Perine was a big reason why the Lions had a good season.
Eli Manning, QB/QB, New York JetsThe No, 2 overall pick, Manning is the third quarterback in the history of the franchise to be drafted in the first three rounds.
He started just five games for the Jets last season before a shoulder injury kept him out for a few weeks, and while he was able to play in 10 games, he was benched early in Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns.
He then went back to throwing passes and was sacked nine times in Week 12, and then went to rehabbing a shoulder.
Manning is now back to being the best quarterback in football, and a first-round pick could be in play for the New York Giants.
Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Ohio StateThe No., 8 overall pick is the most productive running back in the nation, with 1,834 yards and 17 touchdowns over two seasons.
Elliott was a Heisman finalist in 2018 with the Buckeyes, and that success will help him land in the best position to make an impact for the Cowboys.
He’ll have plenty of competition for carries this season with Ezekiel Elliott, Ezekiel Elliott Jr., and Ezekiel Elliott-type running backs in the 2017 draft class.
Laremy Tunsil, OT and DE, Ole MissThe 6″5, 325-pound Tunsils will be a major threat in the middle of
