There are 52 weeks in a year. Some have holidays, birthdays, weddings and other celebrations that are cause for excitement and anticipation.

But only one of those 52 weeks holds the NFL Draft -- and that week is this week.

The wait -- and for many of you out there, the work -- is almost over. It's almost time to see the results of a process that, for many of these players, begins years before it even comes to fruition. We have a tendency to forget that, though this whole draft reporting industry is a job where we have to judge players for their athletic capabilities and how they will preform, this week represents an achievement for many of these young men that they only get to experience once in this life. It's an exciting thing to follow, and no mater where each player ultimately gets selected, this weekend is a weekend of celebration throughout.

It's been a blast getting to cover this draft for the first year of TDN. There are only two major articles left for me to produce before the first team officially goes on the clock. One of those articles is this one, my final 2019 NFL Draft Big Board. This year my final big board reached 200 prospects. These are the players that I feel I was able to watch enough of to have a good grip on. You'll definitely be able to see which players I am higher on than most others in the draft industry; players I believe will be true difference makers at the next level.

So without further ado, here it is. Enjoy!
