After a summer spent scouting the nation, this initial Big Board serves as the starting point for the way I stack up the best draft-eligible talent in college football.
Please be advised, Trevor Lawrence is not eligible. Neither is Rondale Moore, Justyn Ross or Brevin Jordan.
Something to keep in mind with how I assembled this Board is that it gives the benefit of the doubt in projecting growth. There are some young players with limited experience that slot fairly high on this Board because I believe they can evolve based on traits but are far from finished products.
The process is fluid and these rankings/overall board will be updated regularly!
