For 30 NFL teams, the main focus of this weekend and every weekend for the next few months will be on the NFL draft. There are still a few weeks before the NFL combine, but ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay has an idea of who the top prospects will be.

On Wednesday, McShay released his new Top 10 ranking of the top prospects heading into the 2019 NFL Draft.

Rather unsurprisingly, Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa held firm as the No. 1 prospect.

After Bosa, the list becomes more contentious compared to most other mock drafts and rankings.

Todd McShay has Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Williams coming in second, followed by LSU linebacker Devin White, Mississippi State defensive tackle Jeffery Simmons, and Kentucky linebacker Josh Allen rounding out the top five.

Sixth through ninth in order were Michigan defensive end Rashan Gary, Houston defensive tackle Ed Oliver, Clemson defensive tackle Christian Wilks, and Clemson defensive end Clelin Ferrell.

It is a very defense-heavy list, as the top nine prospects are all defensive players - and all of them play in the front seven.

Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins was the lone offensive player on the list, coming in at No. 10.

The Arizona Cardinals hold the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
