The 2020 NFL draft is just a few days away, and the culmination of every NFL scout’s hard work over the past year is about to pay off.

Scouting college prospects is certainly no walk in the park. That’s why teams employ numerous personnel for scouting purposes, whether they be national scouts, area scouts, or high-ranking personnel: there are so many college football players out there.

It’s a daunting task to try and find as many potential professional players as one possibly can, since those players can come from numerous walks of life. From Power 5 Division I schools to under-the-radar Division III colleges, NFL players come from many different backgrounds. That’s why it’s important that, if you want to get a better understanding of what talent is out there, one has to look far and wide.

While not as grueling of a lifestyle as being a professional scout employed with a team, being a draft analyst also requires plenty of work in preparation for the draft. Instead of having numerous scouts assigned to a certain area of the country, draft analysts often have to cover the whole country by themselves. The overall quantity of prospects an “Internet scout” may not be nearly as much as an NFL team, but it’s still a challenging and time-consuming profession or hobby.

In preparation for this year’s draft, I have managed to watch a personal-best 342 prospects this season. Some of my evaluations are pretty standard with the norm, while others might be a little more bold than the consensus. Some of you may like these rankings, while others may hate them and call me an idiot. That’s the fun in draft analysis: it’s completely subjective.

The Bears currently have seven draft picks, though there’s a strong chance that number will change by the time the draft comes to an end. Ryan Pace has been known to make plenty of trades on Draft Day, so he may look to trade up for a player he likes or trade down to stockpile on mid-round picks.

This year’s class is certainly a talented one, so without further ado, here are my top 150 prospects in the 2020 NFL draft.
