0406_BigBoard_Archer

Here is my list of the top 32 college prospects as we head into the NFL Draft, which starts on April 23. You're probably wondering, how did I come up with this order? My rankings come from the player's ability to perform athletically, do his job consistently, and make plays regularly.

The key athletic components:

  • Can he run
  • Body movements
  • Size

The mental aspect of the game:

  • Understanding the concepts
  • Recognition of situation
  • Consistent performance

Does he display play-making ability:

  • Pretty self-explanatory here
  • Difference-making effort
  • Making the tough look easy
