Draft week is here and it is time to get down to the nitty gritty. Yes, I love Nacho Libre! As teams start to finalize their draft boards this week, it is time to do ours here at 600 ESPN El Paso.

UTEP’s Will Hernandez has had a meteoric rise this off-season, as the once second-to-third-round selection now seems entrenched as a top-30 pick. His performance at the combine answered a lot of questions about his athleticism but his arm length may keep him out of the top 20 picks. Maryland’s D.J. Moore also passed his off-season tests. While Moore may not have the height that teams covet, he catches everything thrown his way, is a solid route-runner and has that quick-twitch acceleration you want at wideout.

After a horrendous showing at the combine, Oklahoma’s Orlando Brown went from a late first-round prospect to hoping he’ll be selected in the second round. He still grades out as a potential starter at right tackle in the NFL. Michigan's Maurice Hurst is off several team's boards. The standout defensive tackle was a medical red flag at the combine after an EKG showed irregularities. If he checks out physically, he could be a steal for some team in the third or fourth round.

Here’s a look at my Top 40 prospects broken down into five different tiers based on talent.

Tier 1 - Considered to have the talent and traits that make up a perennial all-pro, these prospects are expected to make an impact for their franchises from day one. What makes these three individuals truly special is that they are also great character guys.

2. Quenton Nelson, OG, Notre Dame

3. Bradley Chubb, DE, NC State
