Finally, NFL draft week is here, and it’s also premier day for this year’s one and only 580 Sports Talk consensus big board.
It’s a simple concept: we take a smattering of draft prospect rankings from around the internet, compile all the boards, fire up a couple Excel equations and bring you the average spot where each prospect is ranked.
For the first time in the three years we’ve done this board, the No. 1 prospect is unanimous, and that’s Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence. Beyond that, there’s plenty of top-to-bottom intrigue for the 200 prospects featured in the rankings.
The 2021 consensus big board:
This year’s boards: NFL Stats Inc., Tankathon, Sporting News, Daniel Jeremiah, Drae Harris, Jordan Reid, Gil Brandt, Mel Kiper, The Ringer, DraftWire, DraftPlex, CBS Sports, Bleacher Report, Grueling Truth, Fox Sports, Sportsnaut, Dane Brugler, San Diego Union-Tribune, Brentley Weissman, TouchdownWire, NFL Mocks, PFF, Jeff Legwold, 4for4, Stampede Blue
