2023 NFL Draft Big Board - Will Anderson

2023 NFL Draft Industry Consensus Big Board: Will Anderson Jr., Bryce Young, and Jalen Carter Lead Top 100 Prospects After CFB Season

The 2023 NFL Draft Industry Consensus Big Board includes 20 different boards and breaks down the top-100 prospects after the college football season.

The 2023 NFL Draft Industry Consensus Big Board includes 20 different boards and breaks down the top 100 prospects after the conclusion of the regular season of college football.

Every year, I put out a big board that features the consensus of opinions from draft analysts around the world, condensing the industry’s rankings into one board that represents the feeling, at large, on each year’s prospects.

What I’ve never done before is keep an updated ranking throughout the draft season to get a gauge on which players are rising, falling, or just entering the conversation. This year, that changes.

Industry Consensus Big Board: What It Means

I’ve compiled rankings from 20 different boards around the industry. By the 2023 NFL Draft, that number will grow beyond 85. For now, that means the top 100 players ranked instead of the top 300, which we’ll have by the time the draft rolls around.

This method has historically done a fantastic job at predicting where players will go in the draft, telling which players are the most polarizing, explaining how different kinds of experts evaluate different types of prospects, and anchoring our discussions on the NFL draft.

This early in the draft cycle, however, we might see unusual stuff. Not every draft board included in the rankings this early was updated at the same time. People roll out their analyses at different dates throughout the year, and this version includes boards updated from late November through early December.

As we continue to update this board, we’ll drop any boards that are over a month old and add in any new ones that might have fresh insight. That way, we can best keep track of player movement until the 2023 NFL Draft rolls around in Kansas City.

How To Read the Industry Consensus Big Board

You might notice some unusual positional designations as you read through the chart. “DL1T” refers to nose tackles, “DL3T” refers to defensive tackles with more pass-rushing responsibility, and “DL5T” refers to players who can play 3-4 defensive end or could be either an edge rusher or interior pass rusher. We also have nickel corners listed as NCBs, which represents who will primarily be expected to play in the slot.
