For reference's sake, this is averaging the boards of CBS Sports' Rob Rang (March 16), ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr.(March 24), Pro Football Focus (March 20) and Rotoworld's Josh Norris (March 24). In parenthesis to the right, it contains where these prospects ranked just after the NFL Scouting Combine.
1.FSU CB/S Jalen Ramsey, 6-foot-1, 202 pounds (Previous: 2)
Much like when multiple presidential candidates duke it out and split votes to allow a reality TV star a clear path to the party nomination, Ramsey jumps to No. 1 on average despite never actually being ranked at No. 1 by any of our analysts. Rang and Kiper park him at No. 2 while PFF and Norris check him into their rankings at No. 3.
2. Ole Miss T Laremy Tunsil, 6-foot-5, 305 pounds (Previous: 1)
Tunsil falls a spot as a clear division emerges between those who think he's a clear-cut first pick and those keeping their options open. Rang and Kiper both rank him at No. 1, while Norris and the PFF analysis team do not unveil his name until No's 4 and 5.
3. Ohio State DE Joey Bosa, 6-foot-5, 275 pounds (Previous: 3)
Bosa holds steady at No. 3. It's unlikely he ever rises back to the lofty perch he held several months ago, when he was viewed as a potential No. 1 selection. In our latest handful of boards, PFF's is the kindest to Bosa's cause. They slot him in as their No. 1 overall prospect. Kiper follows them with Bosa at No. 3, while Rang (No. 4) and Norris (No. 5) close out the proceedings.
4. UCLA LB Myles Jack, 6-foot-1, 222 pounds (Previous: 4)
Rotoworld's Norris has ridden long, cold hours in the dark trumpeting Jack as his No. 1 prospect in this draft. He continues to ring the midnight bell in Big Board 5.0, as Jack resides in his accustomed spot.Rang is next highest on the phenom and places him at No. 3, behind usual suspects Tunsil and Ramsey. Kiper and PFF's collective being are the most conservative here. They rank Jack at No. 5 and No. 6 respectively.
5. Oregon DE DeForest Buckner, 6-foot-7, 290 pounds (Previous: 7)
Two true champions for Buckner buoy him to this spot. The Pro Football Focus team ranks him No. 2, just behind Bosa. Elsewhere on the Internet, Kiper tosses him up at No. 4. Rang isn't quite so bullish and waits until No. 7, while Norris has him outside the top-10 on his board, placing him at No. 11.
6. Ohio State RB Ezekiel Elliott, 6-foot, 225 pounds (Previous: 5)
Zeke's seen a nice wave of momentum of late and holds steady at No. 5 here. Rotoworld's Norris ticks him off the board just after above friend Myles Jack. The rest of our analysts aren't quite so bold, with PFF and Rang both ranking him at No. 8 and Kiper holding off until No. 10.
7. Cal QB Jared Goff, 6-foot-4, 215 pounds (Previous: 8)
Rang (No. 5) and Kiper (No. 6) are both keen on the Cal gunslinger, but Pro Football Focus takes the quarterbacking cake here by ranking Goff as their fourth overall prospect. You won't find Goff on Norris' board until No. 23.
8. Notre Dame OT Ronnie Stanley, 6-foot-6, 315 pounds (Previous: 6)
Kiper leads the charge for Stanley when he ranks him at No. 7. All of our analysts are in the same general ballpark when it comes to the Irish standout. Norris and Rang both check him in at No. 9. Only Pro Football Focus strays a bit outside of the lines, as they pound the pavement for him at a still-respectable No. 15
9. North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz, 6-foot-5, 231 pounds (Previous: 14)
As with his quarterbacking buddy Jared Goff, Wentz has the support of three of our four analysts as a top-10 selection. Rang leads the charge by ranking Wentz at No. 6, but PFF (No. 7) and Kiper (No. 8) are right behind in their accolades for this FCS golden arm. As has been the case throughout the pre-draft season, Norris remains relatively unsold on this quarterback class. Wentz doesn't crack his rankings until No. 24.
10. Louisville DT Sheldon Rankins, 6-foot-2, 304 pounds (Previous: 16)
Norris and PFF are more/less in lockstep when it comes to Rankins, with Rotoworld's draft guru placing him at No. 8 and the collective entity of PFF slotting him at No. 9. Our most conservative analyst in this case would be Rang, who waits until No. 21 to unleash the Louisville DT into Big Board existence. Kiper's splits the middle between Rang's and our other two boards, inviting Rankins to the party at No. 14.
11. Florida CB Vernon Hargreaves III, 5-foot-11, 198 pounds (Previous: 11)
Kiper is the only one of our intrepid crew to rank Hargreaves within the top-10, dredging the swamp for the smooth Gator corner at No. 9. Meanwhile, Norris and Rang peek at each other's sheets to write in Hargreaves at lucky No. 13 while the teacher is dusting off the chalkboard. PFF turns Hargreaves home at No. 19 after the bell rings.
12. Ole Miss WR Laquon Treadwell, 6-foot-2, 212 pounds (Previous: 10)
Rotoworld's Norris and CBS Sports' Rang both hand Treadwell a spot in their respective top-10. Norris' placement at No. 7 is more secure, but Rang's at No. 10 will suffice as well. Kiper fails to rank him quite that high, though he's not far behind in measuring up the Ole Miss star as his No. 12 prospect in this class. Pro Football Focus' machine, on the other hand, is far behind. They wait until 24 other names have passed by the wayside before declaring Treadwell their No. 25 prospect in the pool.
13. Clemson DE Shaq Lawson, 6-foot-3, 275 pounds (Previous: 13)
Rang and the Pro Football Focus collective say howdy in slotting in Lawson at No's 11 and 12, respectively. Kiper and Norris are neighbors on this one, too, though their neighborhood is located a bit south. They uncage the Tiger terror at No's 16 and No. 17, respectively.
14. Baylor WR Corey Coleman, 5-10, 190 pounds (Previous: 23)
Coleman doesn't make the cut on Kiper's 25-man board, so we've taken the average of the three others here. The Bear standout remains Norris' favorite receiver in this class, earning a lofty standing of No. 6. That ranks just a smidge ahead of Laquon Treadwell (No. 7). Pro Football Focus likewise tags Coleman as their top wideout. They write him up at No. 10. Rang keeps the volume a bit lower and waits until No. 29 to debut the human highlight reel.
15. Baylor DT Andrew Billings, 6-foot-1, 300 pounds (Previous: 21)
Once again, Mel Kiper Jr. hatin' on Baylor. As with Coleman, Billings fails to crack his top-25. His complete omission makes Josh Norris' No. 10 ranking seem like it comes on wings of gold. Rang and Pro Football Focus are unwilling to venture into the top-10 range, but place Billings at No. 20 and No. 22, respectively.
