NCAA Football: Fiesta Bowl-Penn State vs Washington
The consensus top prospect in the draft so far?
Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

From now until the draft, I am going to be running a tab on where different draft experts rank potential draft prospects. In order to qualify for inclusion, a board has to rank each position 1-10 or has to offer its Top 100 prospects. Right now, I have included five boards that meet these criteria: Matt Miller’s position ranks, Luke Easterling’s position ranks, Walter Football’s position ranks, NFL Draft Days’ Top 100 and DrafTek’s Top 100. If there is a public board that you want me to consider for inclusion, please leave it in the comments below.

Scoring is simple. A prospect would get a perfect score for being the #1 at his position on all boards and the #1 prospect overall. The value next to the player is how close each prospect is to earning that perfect score.

Please note that this ranking has nothing to do with my own evaluation of players. This is purely an aggregation of different major boards. It is actually the scoring system I used to determine whose video I’m was even going to watch last year (I looked for major splits in ranks and also for players who were consistently rated highly who I had not watched much of already). However, I thought WCG readers might appreciate a chance to see, on average, how major prospects were being evaluated.

After I include 10 total boards, I will probably run some actual analysis. Right now this is mostly just for fun.
