2014 NFL Draft Prospect Rankings: Big Blue View Big Board 1.0

Jadeveon Clowney is the unanimous No. 1-ranked player on our 2014 NFL Draft Big Board - Rob Foldy-USA TODAY Sports

Big Blue View's draft experts have combined to produce a consensus Big Board of the top 50 prospects eligible for the 2014 NFL Draft.

The 2014 NFL Draft is now four months away. We begin our full-blown draft coverage with version 1.0 of the Big Blue View 2014 NFL Draft Big Board.

The board currently lists our take on the top 50 draft-eligible prospects, excluding those who have announced they will be returning to school.

Our methodology in putting together this consensus big board was simple. Each of our three draft gurus -- Jesse Bartolis, Invictus and Raptor22 -- compiled their own Top 50 Big Board. The overall scores were compiled, with rankings based on the point totals accumulated by each draft prospect.

The overall board, and how each of our panelists ranked the prospects on the final board, are shown below. Feel free to analyze and dissect to your heart's content.

There is much more draft content coming. We will soon begin player-by-player draft profiles, will set up a series of mock drafts and -- after the scouting combine -- we will run our annual community mock draft.

Enjoy!
