Like usual, the list is a product of first hand observation by NFN contributors after attending games, analyzing Hudl film and reviewing statistics from the last two seasons. Individual performances at various camps and combines around the country, which measure physical attributes and overall athleticism, are also considered.
The final component to our prospect rankings include input and evaluations from high school and college coaches around the upper Midwest as well as any post-season accolades earned by the student athletes.
The 2019 rankings are a projection of how we think players will perform at the collegiate level so size, strength and athleticism are factored in.
