No surprise here: Ohio State's Chase Young is the top edge rusher prospect in this year's draft class. Are there any pass-rushers teams can target if they're not lucky enough to be drafting at the top of the first round? And who is the prospect teams should avoid?

Is the 2020 class of wide receivers stacked with talented prospects? Yes it is. Is it the best of all time? Not necessarily. In his latest version of Playmaker Score, guest columnist Nathan Forster breaks down the college stats and combine performances of wideouts such as Oklahoma's CeeDee Lamb and attempts to forecast their NFL success.

There are a lot of first-round prospects in the wide receiver class of 2020, but they're generally equal to the average first-rounder of past drafts, with two exceptions. This is the ESPN+ version of Playmaker Score; it will also run on FO with a full table next week.

Our statistical projections for edge rushers in this year's draft agree with the consensus that the talent pool at the position is deep, but are surprisingly pessimistic about Ohio State's Nick Bosa, expected to be the first pass-rusher off the board Thursday night. Who has the best statistical profile? That's a surprise too.

Sometimes statistical projections simply reinforce common consensus -- and sometimes they knock that consensus on its ear. Welcome to BackCAST's projections for 2019 running backs, where a likely Day 3 pick leads the way, and the scouts' favorites fare quite poorly.
Marquise Brown -- top target for both Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray at Oklahoma -- is the top wide receiver prospect in this year's draft class ... which says a lot about how limited the prospects this year are.
