2013 Composite Draft Board

There is an overwhelming amount of data on the NFL Draft. To sort through the noise, I went to four of the most reputable sites for draft coverage (NFL.com, ESPN, SB Nation, and CBS Sports) and created a composite board based on their rankings. I weighted each system the same. For example, Luke Joeckel was ranked 2, 1, 1, and 1 for a composite score of 1.25. As of this moment, he is the top ranked player in this year’s class. A player makes the board if he is ranked in the top 100 on at least three of the sites. Those ranked two times or one time go onto a watch list. I also included Mike Mayock’s ranking for the sole reason that he is the best when it comes to analyzing college prospects, not to mention his great work in the booth for NFL Network and NBC; however, his system does not go into the composite score as he only ranks by position.

I don’t know how to embed it in the post or if it is even possible, but the board is a public Google document and can be accessed here:

There are three sheets: overall ranking, position ranking, and watch list.

Some takeaways:

88 players are on the composite board

11 players come from outside the Power 6 conferences

7 of the top 10 players are linemen

1 quarterback, Geno Smith, gets a first round grade

The highest ranked running back is Eddie Lacy at 40

The board features 11 wide receivers, the most of any position

9 defensive lineman are in the top 25

Of the 88, only 3 are inside linebackers

BCS champions Alabama have 4 players in the top 32, the most of any team

9 players ranked by Mayock do not feature on the board
