Welcome to this year's Rookie Snapshot, our miniseries where Liz Loza and Yahoo Sports NFL Draft analyst Eric Edholm take a deep dive into the top prospects — and future fantasy stars — set to join the league.

  • Najee Harris, Alabama
  • Javonte Williams, North Carolina
  • Travis Etienne, Clemson
  • Michael Carter, North Carolina

You’ll learn the one word you can use to describe each prospect, a key stat from their college days, which NFL player they compare to best and finally, Liz & Eric play GM matchmaker and pick the NFL team that fits with their skillset the best.
