Congratulations football fans, we have made it to the month of the NFL Draft. Before you know it the NFL will welcome a new draft class. All 32 teams are eager to succeed in the NFL Draft.
A good way for any franchise to hit home runs in the draft is to draft the safest prospects. A safe prospect is a player that you know what he will give to your football team. A safe prospect is NFL ready, has no red flags and most importantly has a high floor.
By high floor, I mean that in the worst case scenario, he is a decent player that helps your football team. Teams often take risks on potential (a high ceiling) but too often they overlook the appeal of the polished and NFL ready player that they don’t have to cross their fingers with.
Here are the top 10 prospects who are low-risk investments that should be taken in the first two rounds.
