The top 100 prospects in the 2022 NFL Draft:

All the evaluations are in the books and you can check out my detailed positional rankings for every unit in the draft right here on my page. So now it’s time to combine them all and bring to you my combined big board. Unlike the positional breakdowns, this is actually taking injuries into contact, which we’re aware off at the moment, since I obviously don’t have insight into the respective medical records. NFL teams of course also have the benefit of being able to interview these young men. I don’t have that luxury of making personal connections and weighing their characters, but I see myself as a pretty damn good talent evaluator.

Three players I disqualified from this list, because I simply don’t have the medical information to judge how much I should move them on my board – Michigan edge defender David Ojabo, Nevada quarterback Carson Strong and LSU linebacker Damone Clark. All three would be inside my top-50 otherwise, in that order. You can make out where they would come in based on my positional rankings. And Clemson wide receiver Justyn Ross is another guy I struggled with trying to rank, since I simply don’t have knowledge about where he stands medically.

Either way, this is how I stack up basically the first three rounds of this draft:

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. Obviously this will look different for each individual team because of scheme fit, needs, etc., but for me I just went with who I think are the top 100 prospects available. This is clearly a defensive draft with 10 of my first 14 players on that side of the ball, but I also think there are several offensive linemen worth being selected within the first two days, especially since it’s a rather thin group beyond that, and while some might argue there is not a lot of talent at the skill positions, I think there could be a run on wide receivers on Friday, since I have eight of them with a second-round grade.

Just to set the table here, unlike my positional rankings this list takes injuries and other concerns into consideration. That is why a guy like Jeffery Simmons from Mississippi State isn’t somewhere around the top ten.

Top 100 players in the 2017 NFL Draft:

Over the last five weeks I ranked my top prospects at each position in the draft. Now that I’ve finished evaluating them all and putting lists together, I compiled all of that into a top 100 big board. The crazy part about this list is that it includes a total 27 defensive backs. On the other hand I have only six quarterbacks and offensive tackles respectively on my board – the two most important offensive positions according to most coaches. 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.
