The 2018 NFL Draft is only days away and the Green Bay Packers are set to add new talent to their roster.
While it’s easy to throw together position rankings, we decided to do something different this year. Instead of just giving you my top-10 prospects at each position, I polled three other writers–Tanner Nestle, Kyle Fellows, and Freddie Boston–to get their take on the 2018 draft class.
The four of us each shared our top-10 players by position with the purpose of creating a composite big board. What makes a composite board unique is it’s a culmination of several different opinions on the draft class in hopes to bring a balance of perspectives.
To create the composite board, I assigned a point value to each player based on their position in each writer’s rankings.
For example, if a player, like Saquon Barkley, was ranked first at his position I assigned him 10 points. If he was ranked second he’d get nine points, third would be eight points, and so on (you get the idea).
Each player’s point total would then determine their position on our composite board. This also means if a player received 40 points–the highest possible total–then each writer ranked this player first at his position.
Here is how the whole thing played out after all of the point totals were tallied.
