2014 NFL Draft: Big Blue View Big Board 3.0

Jadeveon Clowney, as expected, is No. 1 on the Big Blue View Big Board - Rob Foldy-USA TODAY Sports

Version 3.0 of the Big Blue View Big Board will be our final one before the 2014 NFL Draft.

The 2014 NFL Draft is now less than two weeks away, and today we release version 3.0 of the Big Blue View Draft Prospect Big Board. This will be our final Big Board, so it is the one we will refer to during the rest of the draft process.

As with the first two versions of our Big Board, this is a combined effort between 'Invictus,' 'Raptor' and Jesse Bartolis. The Big Boards for each of our three draft analysts are shown below, with the total overall scores determining Big Board ranking. Players ranked on one or two Big Boards, but not all three, receive a score of 101 for the boards on which they are not listed.

The No. 1 player on our board is, as you might have expected, South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney. Texas A&M offensive tackle Jake Matthews got the top spot on 'Raptor's Big Board and is No. 2 on our overall board.

One oddity on our board. Jesse left Alabama safety HaHa Clinton-Dix off his board entirely, an admitted oversight after ranking him No. 22 in our last Big Board. That pushed Clinton-Dix all the way down to No. 43 overall. Wouldn't that be an amazing second-round find for the Giants? In reality, Clinton-Dix should be in the 15-17 range on the board.

How does our Big Board compare to the most recent one released by SB Nation's Mocking The Draft? Here are 10 places where our analysts differ substantially with Dan Kadar and Matthew Fairburn.

  • QB Teddy Bridgewater, 12th on our board, is No. 2 on the MTD board.
  • Our guys like Anthony Barr more than the folks at MTD. He is No. 7 on our board, but No. 21 at MTD.
  • Texas Tech tight end Jace Amaro is a first-round value (No. 22) on our board. He is a mid-second round value (No. 38) on the MTD board.
  • There is a difference of opinion when it comes to the value of UCLA guard Xavier Su's-Filo. Our board has him at No. 34, while MTD has him in mid-first round range at No. 15.
  • The same is true of LSU wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., only in reverse. Our board has Beckham at No. 15, while MTD pushes him down to No. 31.
  • Our analysts are much higher on Penn State wide receiver Allen Robinson, who have him at No. 31, than MTD's analysts, where he is No. 61.
  • MTD's analysts see Northern Illinois safety Jimmie Ward (No. 26 on their board) as a first-round value. Our board lists Ward at No. 47.
  • Vanderbilt cornerback Andre Hal did not make our board. He is ranked No. 52 at MTD.
  • LSU defensive tackle Ego Ferguson is another who did not make our board, but is highly-ranked (No. 65) at MTD.
  • Stanford guard David Yankey is No. 31 on our board. MTD's analysts have him at No. 68, making him a late-second to early-third round value for them.
