An updated top 75 big board with an extra 25 added. Yes, my big board 2.0 features my top 100 NFL draft prospects of 2016...

It's that time again. Time for an update on my big board.

Last time, we looked at my top 75 players, but this time we'll have a gander at my top 100 with some players dropping and some jumping.

A FEW NOTES

  • Some of you may notice my two biggest drops from the previous big board are Connor Cook and Derrick Henry. Simply put, the more I watch the less impressed I am. Neither player strikes me as a long term answer at their respective positions. But both has tools to work with, and should carve out okay careers. I look at Henry and see Brandon Jacobs, and I look at Cook and see Ryan Mallet mixed with Matt Cassel, that should tell you all you need to know...
  • I've mentioned it before and I'll mention it again, the interior defensive line is stacked. Whether you need depth or a starter you will find plenty in this draft.
  • There's some really talented linemen in this draft, and the center and tackle positions are stout. It would be beyond wise for the Rams to invest in each position. As they say, get it while the gettings hot, or something like that.
  • This draft is flooded with small school talent. The difference between this year and other years where there's plenty of small school guys is that there's a lot of polish that comes with this group. Don't be surprised if a run starts on them between rounds three and four.
