Top 100 prospects in the 2019 NFL Draft:

After watching hundreds over hundreds of hours of film, putting together positional rankings and comparing them to each other, I have finalized my big board for this upcoming draft.

This is an extremely deep draft at so many positions, which kept some great players off my list, so I added ten more names.

Different to my positional rankings, I took injuries and off-the-field concerns into account. If you are interested in analyses on the top prospects at each position, you can find them all right here.
