The 2021 NFL Draft is just three days away, and as we wrap up on pre-draft analysis, now seems like as good of a time as ever to look at the overall quality of this year’s class.

In a tape evaluation period that saw a tough quarantine period give me a massive head-start on the 2021 draft, this pre-draft process has been an eventful one, to say the least. The actual weekend now drawing near, my rankings are now finalized and my big board set in stone.

I’ll be sharing the top 100 of my big board this year. The link for my draft guide — featuring the entirety of my top 400, scouting reports, a 7-round mock draft and more — will be placed below these rankings.

With all that out of the way, here are my finalized top 100 prospects in the 2021 NFL Draft.
