We're less than a week away from the start of the 2019 NFL Draft, which begins on Thursday night.

The Arizona Cardinals have the No. 1 overall pick in this year's NFL Draft. Former Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray is believed to be in contention for the top overall selection. So, too, is former Buckeyes star Nick Bosa.

Who is actually the best player in the NFL Draft class, though?

According to some NFL personnel, it's not Bosa or Murray.

Former Alabama standout Quinnen Williams won the poll done by Bob McGinn.

"I polled 14 personnel people this month on their choice as the best player in the NFL draft. Here were the totals: Q. Williams 6, Bosa 3, Murray 2, J. Allen 1, Haskins 1, Simmons 1," he tweeted.

Williams, 21, starred at Alabama for two seasons. He was one of the best players in the country last season, totaling 71 tackles, 19.5 TFL and eight sacks.

The 2019 NFL Draft is set to begin on Thursday night.

The first round starts at 8 p.m. E.T.
