The college football season is upon us, which means for the NFL Draft community, it’s go time. Summer grades are in and it’s Big Board 1.0 season. After a summer of grinding tape on known prospects returning for their Senior seasons, young players who have been hyped and are now finally draft eligible, plus a bunch of JAGs, I now have a rough idea of what the 2019 NFL Draft could look like.

The draft isn’t for over seven months so it would be ridiculous to imply any of this will look the same by then, but it’s always good to have an idea this early. So many more prospects will emerge, some will play themselves up or down the board, and other guys will move with more tape study. For now this is my Big Board and position rankings entering the season. Remember, if there’s a prospect missing that you believe deserves to be here, drop a comment because I may not know about them just yet.
