Even though the 2025 NFL draft is more than 10 months away, it is never too early to evaluate an upcoming class. That's what we did here, as ESPN draft experts Matt Miller and Jordan Reid picked their top five players at every position for next year.

But this isn't simply a bunch of top-five lists. Miller and Reid also named players whose ranking might be complicated by external factors (injuries, position changes, transfers) and players outside the top five at their positions who could be vaulted up the board in the months to come. Let's dig into the 2025 class, which is loaded at defensive tackle and on the edge. We'll start with the quarterbacks.

Note: Some prospects are listed under different positions for different analysts.
