Joseph B. Coaty Top 300 Prospects for the 2008 NFL Draft

Joseph B. Coaty
March 10, 2008

The following list is whom I consider to be the top 300 prospects for the 2008 NFL Draft as of March 10, 2008. This list is in no way a prediction of where I think players will be drafted. The list is simply a ranking of players with regards as to how I think they will eventually perform in the NFL.


NOTE: For players with two positions listed, the first position listed is the position that player played at during the 2007 season, the second position listed is the position I currently project that player to play in the NFL.
