It should come as no surprise, but national champion Georgia has the most prospects (11) in my initial top-100 ranking. While their defense will return some potential first-round prospects for 2023, such as Jalen Carter, Kelee Ringo and Nolan Smith, eight of the 11 Bulldogs below, including the first six on this list, are defenders. Cincinnati (seven) and Alabama (five) ranked second and third, respectively, in terms of prospects on my first big board of the year. Edge rusher is arguably the deepest position in this year’s draft class, and 15 appear below, which is tied with wide receivers for the most of any position. The groups with the fewest prospects on the list are tight end and interior offensive linemen (five each).
