Prior to the post-college all-star games and the NFL combine, NFL.com released its top 50 prospects for the NFL draft.

The list includes four Ohio State players: Safety Malik Hooker is the No. 2 overall prospect while cornerback Marshon Lattimore is No. 3.

The Buckeyes’ other starting cornerback, Gareon Conley, is rated No. 29 while receiver Curtis Samuel is No. 41.

Texas A&M defensive end/linebacker Myles Garrett tops the rankings.

Media NFL draft rankings can be misleading since they don’t necessarily represent the actual feelings of the the people making the decisions on draft day, but they at least provide some discussion fodder during the cold winter months.
