The 2022 NFL Draft is less than 2 weeks away, and the anticipation around the league continues to grow by the day.

Team interviews with prospects are wrapping up, and front offices are debating amongst themselves into oblivion with their opinions on players they’ve had strong opinions on for months at this point. Fans are engaging in mock draft simulations galore, and draftniks like myself have solidified their own big boards to share with the masses.

This makes now as good of a time as ever to display a peek at my own board for this year’s draft!

I have published the entire of my big board in my draft guide over on my Patreon — featuring over 400 players — so if you’re confused as to why your favorite mid-round prospect isn’t in this article, I can guarantee they’ll be ranked somewhere on my full board.

As an added bonus, I’ll be sharing my top 10 players at each position, as well as my top 150 overall prospects. Without further ado, let’s begin.
