Early Look at 2013 top-50 prospects

By Dane Brugler | NFLDraftScout.com Senior Analyst
Is it too early to start talking about the 2013 NFL Draft class? Of course not. NFL teams are already looking towards next year's class, and we will too.

The following list will be extremely fluid over the next 12 months and will see some drastic changes, but you need to start somewhere. Underclassmen are marked with an asterisk (*).

1. QB Matt Barkley, USC
Doesn't have "wow" physical tools, but boasts the resume, leadership and decision-making to be a top pick in 2013

2. DE Barkevious Mingo*, LSU
This explosive edge rusher stood out on the Nation's most talented defensive line and will remind scouts of Von Miller

3. DT Johnathan Hankins*, Ohio State
Defensive linemen that are 335-pounds aren't supposed to move like he can, recording 11.0 tackles for loss in 2011

4. QB Tyler Wilson, Arkansas
He lost three of his top receivers to the draft and won't have Bobby Petrino on the sidelines, but the sky's the limit

5. WR Robert Woods*, Southern Cal
Like his QB, he won't test off-the-charts physically, but he's a polished route runner and knows how to get open

6. RB Marcus Lattimore*, South Carolina
A productive, well-built back with deceiving quickness, but how will he return from last year's knee injury?

7. QB Tyler Bray*, Tennessee
Bray looked like a future first rounder last year, but a broken thumb derailed his season, how will he respond in 2012?

8. DE Alex Okafor, Texas
The top defensive senior on this list, Okafor finished last season with 12.5 tackles for loss and 7.0 sacks

9. DT Star Lotulelei, Utah
At 6-4 and 325-pounds with his strength and agility, expect to hear a lot of Haloti Ngata player comparisons

10. LB Manti Te'o, Notre Dame
A fast, instinctive linebacker with a relentless playing style, will be first round pick next year if he cleans up his tackling

11. WR Justin Hunter*, Tennessee
12. DE Bjoern Werner*, Florida State
13. LB Jarvis Jones*, Georgia
14. WR Keenan Allen*, California
15. LB Sean Porter, Texas A&M
16. DE Corey Lemonier*, Auburn
17. CB Tyrann Mathieu*, LSU
18. CB David Amerson*, NC State
19. RB Montee Ball, Wisconsin
20. DE Brandon Jenkins, Florida State
21. OL Barrett Jones, Alabama
22. DE Jackson Jeffcoat*, Texas
23. DT Dominique Easley*, Florida
24. OT Taylor Lewan*, Michigan
25. RB Knile Davis, Arkansas
