2016 NFL DRAFT TOP 100 PROSPECTS

Now that the practices are over the actual Senior bowl is upon us, and a lot of guys have already moved up & down draft boards . The practices are actually more important than the game in this situation, although a good/bad game can make a difference too. Still going through tape daily, and have some new additions to this expanded board. Not to mention that there are some small school guys that I have had very little exposure to so far, or guys I didn't expect to come out who did that I am just starting on. A record 107 underclassmen entered the 2016 draft, and I think it's likely that close to a third of them will go UN-drafted. However most of the top 10, probably more than 70% of the first round draftees , and at least 40 plus players out of the top 100 will also be players who could have stayed in school for at least one more year.So also keep that in mind along with the fact that some of these guys will get hurt, get in trouble off the field, impress & disappoint in the aforementioned Senior Bowl, on the chalkboard, or in interviews. There is still a lot to work to do on a lot these players, but here is how I see it so far. The prospects have former or current NFL player comparisons below their name , so you can get an idea of what kind of player they might become. The comp is for on the field play only, and the higher they are ranked the more likely it is that I think they will reach that comp.While I have designations for players with reported character(#) or injury(**) issues, every single year guys fall due to both that aren't reported in the general media until after draft,especially medical problems where a player who has great tape is thought to have a chronic long term medical issue according to the NFL teams medical professionals. With that being the case I am now just ranking them due to their play on the field, unless the injury issue is already something I think will hurt them long term, or they are already injury prone . So if you wonder why I have a guy a lot higher or lower in my mock drafts it could be because of already generally reported injury or character issues, but it could also be I just value them higher than I think some teams will. It could also be that some teams draft for need, scheme first, or position value like QB for instance. Right now I see a draft deep on the defensive side off the ball.  Interior D-line is the deepest overall position with 10-15 possible players that could go in the first 2 rounds. Edge rusher, corner back , safety, and off the ball linebackers all have at least one potential top 10 pick. All of those positions have at least 5 players with a chance to go in the first 2 rounds.  On offense the O-line is the strongest position group, especially at tackle in the top 2 rounds, but there is depth at center throughout the draft. There is no clear cut elite franchise QB at the top of of this draft right now, even though I think it likely that 3 QB's go in the first round, and it's possible that as many 8 could go in the top 100. Of the 2 QB's I currently have with a 1rst round grade neither of them are as highly graded as Winston & Mariota last year. Although the rest of this years draft is better in blue chip talents at the top compared to last season .Feel free to comment . Agree or disagree is fine with me, but please do it respectfully & intelligently. It's actually the top 103 because there is a extra one each for JESUS, Family, and Football.


# Is for a player with with reported character or maturity concerns.


** Is for a player with reported injury concerns.


THE ELITE-These are the kind of players that I see as possible rare and special talents that I would be willing to trade into the expensive top 10 to get. As always franchise quarterback trumps all, but I don't have one in this group.
