NFL draft Big Board 1.0: Ranking the top 10 prospects

106 0

The college football regular season is complete. LSU QB Joe Burrow won the Heisman Trophy. LSU, Ohio State, Clemson and Oklahoma have been selected for the College Football Playoff. So we’ve got a lot of evidence to dig through now on the 2020 draft class.

With that in mind, I figured the time was right to put together a top 10 big board—both for my own educational purposes and as entertainment for the rest of you who love lists.

Chase Young
Thanks for watching!

1. Ohio State DE Chase Young | Height: 6′ 5″ | Weight: 265 pounds

All-Planet. Heisman finalist. Generational prospect. Easy, right?

2. Auburn DT Derrick Brown | Height: 6′ 5″ | Weight: 318 pounds

Brown would’ve been a top-15 pick last year. He came back and won SEC Defensive Player of the Year. A super-sized, game-wrecking force.

3. Ohio State CB Jeffrey Okudah | Height: 6′ 1″ | Weight: 200 pounds

Okudah had top-10 overall potential coming into the year, but he needed to be more consistent.

4. LSU QB Joe Burrow | Height: 6′ 1″ | Weight: 216 pounds

You know his story, and I have more on him in my Six From Saturday column. Good, not great tools. But he’s an outstanding leader, a gamer—all that cliched stuff, etc., etc.

5. Georgia OT Andrew Thomas | Height: 6′ 5″ | Weight: 320 pounds

Probably the first tackle off the board, but it’s not a sure thing. Much will ride on the pre-draft process for a competitive position group.

6. Clemson S/LB Isaiah Simmons | Height: 6′ 4″ | Weight: 229 pounds

Maybe my favorite prospect, in that he’s an athletic freak who you’d need to find a home for. The safety/backer/rusher can do a bunch.

7. South Carolina DL Javon Kinlaw | Height: 6′ 6″ | Weight: 310 pounds

Another SEC lineman who stayed when he could’ve gone and has dominated as a senior. Though several scouts raised potential red flags about possible character issues.

8. Alabama WR Jerry Jeudy | Height: 6′ 1″ | Weight: 192 pounds

He’s the presumptive choice to be the first receiver taken, but I’m not so sure it’s going to happen that way for the Calvin Ridley playalike anymore.

9. Iowa OT Tristan Wirfs | Height: 6′ 5″ | Weight: 322 pounds

Wirfs is the fourth in a cluster of four tackles at the top. He’s a solid product of an offensive line factory who compares to Titans RT Jack Conklin.
