Electrifying QBs highlight Arizona vs. USC (0:39)

Khalil Tate and Sam Darnold will face off Saturday night at 10:45 ET on ESPN when Arizona travels to USC for a matchup of ranked Pac 12 teams. (0:39)

Although it seems like the season just began, we're somehow entering Week 10 of the college football season, which has given more time for prospects to stand out. There are familiar names up top on my top 32 prospects list, but a couple new additions, including an appearance for the nation's leading rusher.

Here are my top prospects for the 2018 NFL draft right now:

Note: Underclassmen are marked with an asterisk.


1. Sam Darnold, QB, USC*

Grade: 95 | Previous rank: 1

Darnold has made some questionable decisions throwing the football this season (10 INTs is more than his total from 2016), but it hasn't changed my evaluation of him. He also has only one INT in the past three games. He simply makes plays when it matters, as seen again against Utah in the second half. His delivery still needs to be cleaned up, but his accuracy is phenomenal. He is the most complete quarterback in college football and a potential franchise signal-caller, if he decides to enter the draft.

2. Saquon Barkley, RB, Penn State*

Grade: 94 | Previous rank: 2
