Kyle Yates’ 2021 NFL Draft Big Board 1.0

Draft season is a marvelous time. NFL fans that were put through emotional hell the past season now have renewed spirits as they look ahead to see what player could rejuvenate their franchise.

My work here at FantasyPros is largely focused on fantasy football. This obviously means that I’m focusing on the key positions like QB, RB, WR, and TE. However, I also dedicate a large portion of the off-season to studying the NFL Draft as a whole and aiming to provide analysis on players at every position.

The Big Board you’ll find below is focused on every single position in the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft. This is not specifically fantasy football focused, but instead is meant to give you a glimpse into who I believe are the best available prospects, regardless of position. There will be plenty of time for Dynasty Big Boards – make sure to stay tuned for those – but this is meant to introduce you to the players who could find themselves wearing your favorite team’s colors later this spring.

If you come across a player that does not have specific notes written for them, I am not done evaluating their tape. I’ll certainly get to finalizing their grades eventually, but we’re still very early on in the entire process and there are only so many hours in the day. Their ranking is an estimate based on my exposure to watching them play in other settings versus sitting down and fully evaluating them in-depth. Please stay tuned as I’ll be releasing Big Board updates frequently as I’m able to evaluate more players.

With all that being said, please enjoy this Big Board with my top-85 2021 NFL Draft prospects!
