2015 Top 50 Prospects By Class

Get a head start on preparing for the draft in June—and for years to come—with a look at the top 50 college prospects in each class. The senior class list has become even more important in recent years as many teams have taken to drafting college seniors in the top 10 rounds to save money for later picks.

All college juniors and seniors are eligible for the 2015 draft. Asterisks (*) denote freshmen and sophomores who are draft-eligible, either because of their age or because they're attending junior college or a post-secondary school.
