Over 250 of college football's top prospects will hear their name called at the 2016 NFL Draft -- but, excluding quarterbacks, who are the guys that are set to immediately make a big impact for whichever team is lucky enough to draft them? Some of the most intriguing players include:

• UCLA's Myles Jack, who can play just about anywhere in the back seven of the defense. Whether it's inside linebacker, outside linebacker - even safety - Jack will fit in anywhere ... he can cover tight ends and running backs, play the run sideline to sideline, and get after the quarterback. All 32 teams would love to have him.

• Florida State's Jalen Ramsey, easily the top defensive back in the draft. He excelled at both cornerback and safety for the Seminoles, only allowed one touchdown i 2015, and he's not even a finished product yet - the arrow is still very much pointing up for Ramsey.

• Ohio State's Ezekiel Elliott, who can do it all. As great as he is at carrying the football, he's not a liability on passing downs as he's comfortable as a safety valve in the passing game and he'll roll up his sleeves in pass pro to keep his quarterback clean.

• Mississippi's Laremy Tunsil, an athletic marvel ready to protect his quarterback's blind side for the next decade and create cavernous holes in the ground game.

• Baylor's Corey Coleman, a speedster who was wildly productive last year in catching a whopping 20 touchdowns and winning the Biletnikoff Award. He'll be a nightmare for defenses to handle when he gets the ball in space.
