A look at Jake O’Brien’s top rated players heading into the 2017 NFL Draft
.

Big Board
Leonard Fournette remains at the top of the big board despite a down season.

I’m back again with my updated big board. This will be updated throughout the year leading up to the draft, which is in just under 100 days.  I’m not particularly happy about the top half of the board, specifically, it hurts when a few guys I really like have decided to return to school (or at least at the moment). I think this class is rather weak and there aren’t a lot of first rounders on my board.

Shout out goes to Taco Charlton. Really impressed with him lately and I can’t wait to chart more games of him, I recommend everyone to watch his game against Ohio State. I’ve watched quite a lot of tape the last month which has led to a lot of players rising and falling, especially falling. Some I hadn’t watch since 2015 and regressed or didn’t improve like I hoped. Also, watched way over 200 prospects now! Also started on my draft guide, and I’m 10 000 words into it so get your eyes ready. Got a weekly scouting report series as well.

Any concerns with “no way player x is better than y” or “player X should be way higher up you idiot” won’t be answered. Tell me why I have him rated too low or too high and we can have a discussion about it!

Keep in mind this board is based on my views on players, not Matt Miller or Todd McShay. . Constructive criticism is however well appreciated and I’ll answer any questions why I have a prospect ranked where I do on twitter , which is @jakeobrien_w.  If you feel I’ve placed a player wrongly, either too high or low, please convince me and I’ll without a doubt go back and give the player a new look. Any prospect not on the board I likely haven’t ranked yet or watched (or just forgotten about). Without further ado, the list :
