2016. Carson Wentz (Pick: Jared Goff)
With all due respect to the star-studded top five of this class, which included Jared Goff, Joey Bosa, Ezekiel Elliott, and Jalen Ramsey, quarterback Carson Wentz — whom the Philadelphia Eagles traded up to select — is the best player out of this year’s class. If it weren’t for his season-ending injury in December of 2017, Wentz would’ve been named the MVP of the league in just his second season in the NFL.
As he continues to round back into form after the injury, his combination of size, arm strength, and accuracy are as dangerous as almost any quarterback in the NFL.
