2015 NFL Draft: Post-Combine Big Board and Prospect Rankings

The NFL Combine may be over and done with, but the buzz that many of the event’s top performers were able to generate is still dominating the headlines.

Top prospects such as West Virginia WR Kevin White, Michigan State CB Trae Waynes and Clemson edge rusher Vic Beasley all proved to be elite athletes, while other less heralded prospects such as UConn CB Byron Jones, Hobart OL Ali Marpet and Texas LB Jordan Hicks all gave a big boost to their stock with tremendous showings in workouts as well.

With the Combine now in the rear view mirror and the NFL free agency period right around the corner, draft weekend continues to inch ever closer. It’s now time to to delve deep and figure out which players truly have what it takes to become impact players at the next level.

With just a little over two months to go before draft weekend, here’s a look at the updated Top 100 big board along with positional prospect rankings for the 2015 NFL Draft class,
