This is really interesting, thanks for sharing it.Consensus Big Board (Top 200)
Data culled from Bleacher Report (175), Brugler (100), Campbell (100), CBS Big Board (350), Draft Diamonds (250), DraftTek (300), Espn (300), Mock Draft Database (250), NFL.com (300), PFF Big Board (350), PFN Big Board (250), Sporting News (100), Sports Illustrated (100), Daniel Jeremiah (50), Tankathon (100), TDN Big Board (100).
Its funny, I read PFF, I listen to Kiper/McShay when they are on, I read DJ on NFL.com, and yet the source I seem to have the most similar views to is Tankathon, who I have almost no knowledge of. I guess that speaks to making up my own mind on guys, but its surprising to me.
I probably watch Bootleg (Brett Kollmann & EJ Snyder) & PFF on YT the most. I like Mike Renner and the newish pod NFL Stock Exchange (PFF started this year but same guys, Trevor Sikema & Trevor Rogers, who create a lot of their draft content.) TBH I like them for entertainment factor as much as anything. PFF is kind of out of sync with a lot of consensus ranks.
Every draft has surprises. though. Would be boring if all the GMs went chalk.
IDK how to access all 22 for CFB so I find it pretty hard to do my own scouting for passing game positions, rely on others opinions and breakdowns. I don't see much value in watching highlights or regular telecasts bc I have no idea what coverages are with the typical sideline view. Somewhat easier doing lineman and RBs but you often don't get the ball carriers view.
