The 2022 NFL Scouting Combine has come and gone, and free agency is right around the corner.

It’s an exciting time of year, and the last week of news around the world of football is living proof of that. Much will change between now and the 2022 NFL Draft, but with the Combine fresh in our minds and the chaos of free agency not totally underway, now is as good of a time as any to preview this year’s draft class.

I’ve done a handful of big boards this year, and as I prepare to finalize my rankings and complete my entire board for the rest of these draft articles and my upcoming draft guide, I figured I’d share with you all what my board currently looks like.

Since the last big board I released, there have been 11 new players to enter my top 100, with plenty of moving and shaking going on. My rankings reflect which positions I believe the class to be deepest at: wide receiver, cornerback, edge rusher, defensive line and offensive tackle among them. Luckily for the Bears, they have needs at most of those positions this offseason.

Without further ado, here is my current top 100 big board for the 2022 NFL Draft.
