As the summer winds down and the kids go back to school, that can only mean one thing… Football.
With the NFL Regular Season starting back up this week and the first week of the College Football season in the books, I think now is the time to start talking about NFL Draft. Now before you stop complaining, this isn’t a mock draft, instead we’re going to do monthly installments of the Top 10 players on my Big Board. Normally I’d wait to truly reveal this, but I think it would be a fun idea to see how my Big Board changes throughout a season. Now we’re going to keep this simple, we’re only going to do a Top 10 every month and trust me, there will be some changes every month as I’ve already started my scouting process and am already finding some concerns at some big time prospects. So it’s that time to reveal my first 2017 NFL Draft Top 10 Big Board.
Honorable Mention- Michigan CB Jourdan Smith, Georgia RB Nick Chubb, Western Michigan WR Corey Davis, Alabama LT Cam Robinson, Alabama DT Jonathan Allen, Florida St RB Dalvin Cook, Ohio State LB Raekwon McMillan
Now trust me when I say this Top 10 will change over time. I left off quite a few big names that I’m sure are going to play well early and play themselves into my Top 10. This first Big Board is all about my projections for players along with upside. Last year at around this time, I had pegging former MSU QB Connor Cook as the #1 pick, only to have former Cal QB Jared Goff jump him only a month later. So trust me this Top 10 is far from over. But for now let’s enjoy College Football and keep our hopes high for our respective NFL teams. It should be fun to see how this plays out because the first weekend of the College season left us with a ton of surprises, so I expect my big board to be full of surprises all year as well.
