Below, you can find our player positional grades, including our final grades, ceiling grades, and where each player ranks on the current NFL Draft Big Board.

Positional Ranking By Final Grade

The final grade represents the level of the immediate impact we project a player can make in their first year.

  1. Kenny Pickett Pitt (Solid Starter Level) Year One Starter Level

  2. Malik Willis Liberty (Developmental) 1-2 yrs development

  3. Desmond Ridder UC (Developmental) 1-3 Years development

  4. Matt Corral Ole Miss (Developmental) 1-3 Years Development

  5. Sam Howell UNC (Developmental) 1-3 Years Development

  6. Carson Strong NEV (High-Level Backup)

  7. Bailey Zappe WKU (High-Level Backup)


Positional Ranking by Ceiling Grade

The ceiling grade projects the highest level of potential we believe a prospect can reach once they have developed their skills at the NFL level. If a player enters the NFL with a developmental grade (1-3 years development) with a ceiling of projected high-end starter, we believe that the prospect has the potential to reach their projected ceiling if in the right situation within 1-3 years. The projected time frame might vary based on a player's final grade and film review.

  1. Malik Willis Liberty (High-End Starter Potential)

  2. Carson Strong Nevada (High-End Starter Potential)

  3. Desmond Ridder UC (High-End Starter Potential)

  4. Sam Howell UNC (Solid Starter Potential)

  5. Kenny Pickett Pitt (Solid Starter Potential)

  6. Matt Corral Ole Miss (Solid Starter Potential)

  7. Bailey Zappe WKU (Lower Level Starter Potential)
