The first round of the 2019 NFL Draft ended last night and analysts are already making their draft boards for the 2020 NFL Draft. Slated to be held in Las Vegas next year, plenty of early predictions are pouring in.

Among the first analysts to present an early look is Joel Klatt of FS1. The Fox Sports analyst presented his early ranking of the top prospects the morning after the first round.

Klatt revealed his top-15 prospects for the 2020 draft.

Here's a look at the top five:

  1. QB Justin Herbert, Oregon
  2. DT Derrick Brown, Auburn
  3. QB Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama
  4. OT Walker Little, Stanford
  5. DE Chase Young, Ohio State

The full list can be seen below.

All 15 players on Klatt's list hail from just three conferences: The Pac-12, SEC, and Big Ten.

Unsurprisingly, it's being headlined by a quarterback: Oregon's Justin Herbert. 2018 Heisman Trophy runner-up Tua Tagovailoa is also high on the list, but he isn't even the top SEC player in the class.

But there are always big risers and fallers in every draft class.

Who thought this time last year that Kyler Murray would win the Heisman trophy - let alone go No. 1 to a team that had just drafted a quarterback.
