The grind is finally over, it’s draft week. After spending the last 10 months watching tape on the 2018 draft class I’m excited beyond belief for all three days of the 2018 NFL Draft. It’s almost a guarantee there will be a player drafted that I haven’t watched, despite evaluating over 400 players, and that’s going to sting. Below is my final big board and position rankings, every single player has a pro comparison. It’ll be fun to track this class, it’s the most work I’ve ever put into one group. I’m going to love to see who I hit and miss on. Big boards are the bread and butter of a draft analyst, it’s all about how they see the class and to me they are far more important than mock drafts. But stay tuned for my final seven-round mock draft dropping the day of the draft. Enjoy, and I look forward to the 2019 class and hopefully getting 500 players done for then.

I’m Canadian as can be, other than the fact that I don’t care about hockey. I love football. The NFL is my life. I consider myself a football guy and I’d rather watch tape than anything else. I’m the Armchair NFL Draft analyst here. You can read my Armchair Scout columns and call me out for my draft misses. I’m also part of two podcasts at Armchair. Our NFL Draft podcast, 7 Rounds in Heaven, and the main NFL pod, Resting the Starters. I cheer for the Steelers, Raptors, Blue Jays, Oregon, and I guess the Leafs.
