Osborn Laboratories: 37 Draft Prospects

I chose 37 players to assess, ranging everywhere in the draft from the teens to the undrafted, These players, a couple of which I've never actually seen live, have been analyzed and studied in detail in Osborn Laboratories, and I have made the following judgments. Many (most) of you won't agree with me on all these picks, so I'll offer approximately 5.5 words on each one, explaining why I think this way.

Destroy me in the comments, pause.
