2019 NFL Draft Big Board: Top 100 Prospects

Murray may go No. 1 overall, but where does he land on our latest big board?

The NFL Draft is under two weeks away. With the big day fast approaching, NFL teams and draft analysts alike are making the final tweaks to their big boards. Because every NFL team has their own evaluation methods, the big board process is an intriguing one. How they weigh talent, college production, upside, floor, NFL readiness, and athleticism, among other things, differs from club to club.

For this big board, we are looking for long-term upside, followed by the projectability and translatability of skill sets. Dominating at the college level does not guarantee you a successful NFL career. Likewise, having motor issues despite obvious talent and tools does not guarantee a prospect will be dogged by the same effort concerns throughout one’s NFL career. This big board is primarily based on talent grades, with upside playing a large correlative factor.

Players have been knocked if they have questions about what position they will play in the NFL. For example, we have Jonah Williams who was one of the best left tackles in the country during the 2018 college football season. He has a ton of talent but will not be able to stay at left tackle in the pros and play at a Pro Bowl level. He doe, however,r have Pro Bowl upside as a guard but is not the type of prospect at guard that last year’s sixth overall pick Quenton Nelson was.

This big board is not meant to project draft position. The impetus here is to rank players based on upside and talent. Take Rashan Gary and Greg Little for example. They both present concerns regarding effort level and taking plays off. Both, however, have as much upside, if not more, than any other prospect at their position in this draft class, and are ranked accordingly.
