The newcomers

Though there wasn’t a ton of movement at the top of Todd McShay’s updated top-32 prospect list, a few newcomers broke through after the first edition came out last month.

South Carolina senior pass rusher Kingsley Enagbare continually impresses NFL scouts week in and week out this season. Enagbare has 4.5 sacks this season and 10 QB hurries.

Michigan linebacker David Ojabo made his debut at No. 25 in McShay’s NFL prospects list this time around. Ojabo and Aidan Hutchinson provide a powerful pass-rush for the Wolverines that has been hard to stop all year long. The third-year player has 10.0 sacks (tied for seventh in the country), 10.0 tackles for loss, 6 QB hurries and 5 forced fumbles (second).

Offensive lineman Bernhard Raimann has been shining for Central Michigan and impressing many NFL scouts. As a former tight end who only recently started playing OL, Raimann has a very high ceiling.

Behind Raimann on McShay’s list are two more small program seniors. Trey McBride at Colorado State has made a splash. He’s just 81 yards shy of a 1,000-yard receiving season. NFL scouts also see a ton of potential in Northern Iowa tackle Trevor Penning, a late bloomer at the position with a ton of upside.

A few initial bottom first-rounders also made big jumps in McShay’s second edition like USC WR Drake London, Pittsburgh QB Kenny Pickett and Alabama WR Jameson Williams.
