2016 NFL Draft: Consensus Big Board 2.0 reflects changing perceptions

New, comments

The 2016 NFL Draft is approaching. With that in mind, here is version 2.0 of our Consensus Big Board, listing the top 100 players in the upcoming draft.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Much has changed in the 2016 NFL Draft landscape since we released version 1.0 of our 2016 NFL Draft Consensus Big Board here at Big Blue View. The NFL Scouting Combine and the ongoing slew of pro days have changed the way many prospects are viewed with the draft coming up next month. Here, then is version 2.0 of our Consensus Big Board.

This board, compiling selections from Alex, Chris, Invictus, and Stephen, is expanded to 100 players. Our initial board had just the top 50. You see each analyst's individual rankings, a player's overall rank, and their total score. Also, the final column is the projected draft round for each player. NFL teams tend to list players in tiers, rather than 1-100 and the "round" value is our way of approximating that.

Something interesting is that New York Giants General Manager Jerry Reese always says there are really only about 25 first-round draft picks. We ended up with pure first-round grades on exactly 25 players.
