2016 NFL Draft Overrated Prospects.

Labeling a prospect as one of the 2016 NFL Draft’s most overrated players is a little tricky. Many will immediately think that I see these players as low-level prospects. However, it’s more often the fact that there is too much hype surrounding the player.

The majority of the players on this list are talked about as 1st round prospects or even top-10 talents. I have them labeled as overrated because they have some flaws or risks that make it tough to rate them so highly.

A top-10 pick should be someone expected to produce at a high level and often times very quickly. They should also be seen as a safe prospect who has little chance to bust or fail to meet expectations. Each prospect in this articles has at least one factor raises the risk factor.

I listed two quarterbacks in this group which is a little unfair because it’s such a difficult position to evaluate. This is especially true for the 2016 NFL draft because each of the prospects come with some question marks.

However, the ones I included have a few more question marks than my top rated quarterback California’s Jared Goff. Overall, this draft has a limited amount of prospects who could be considered safe.
