The 2018 NFL regular season ended Sunday night, but fret not: It's officially draft season. The work now begins in earnest of evaluating, grading and ranking the top players in the class—in fact our NFL Draft 400 work started Monday morning while the New England Patriots were sleeping off their celebrations.
NFL Draft 400 is a project for which we write up 400 prospects complete with grades and pro player comparisons. To rank 400 players, you have to start somewhere. Generally, we start at the top and work down. That has led to an updated Big Board and a few key changes in the top 50 overall.
