SMD's by position Draft Depth Chart

I was on Twitter and saw Rich Eisen tweet that Mike Mayock did one of these, so I figure I'd do one too. Kind of like my top 5 by position, but not exactly. I'll be spliting players up by individual positions, like you would see on a depth chart. You may see some players more than once, as some fit into multiple positions. Like a DE may also fit into the 3-4 OLB bracket, and a OT may also fit in at OG.
