Today I’m starting a 3 part series for the 2018 NFL Draft. The first segment is what I’m doing today, my top 55 big board, next I will be ranking the top 10 players at each position, and finally either this weekend or mid next week I will be doing a 2018 NFL Mock Draft. Now I know what you’re saying, “why not just do a top 50?” Well, this class looks really deep, as most do at this time of year, so I wanted to fit in as many players as I could.

With draft gurus still in the scouting mode, I decided to make a 2018 top 55 big board, which of course, is subject to monumental change as this upcoming season commences. If I happened to miss a player you like, leave a comment and tell me who!

*Rankings will change due to the upcoming 2017 season
