After months of watching tape, evaluating testing numbers, making calls around the league and shuffling my board, I'm finally locking in my 2023 NFL draft rankings. This class has a little bit of everything. We have multiple quarterbacks with first-round grades, a handful of dynamic offensive playmakers and some really elite defenders at the top of the deck.
Even though only 259 names will be called over the course of the draft, I ended up ranking 350 prospects. And the list is topped with two 96 grades. For context, I didn't have any players with a grade that high last year, and the last two players to earn marks at least that high were Trevor Lawrence (97 in 2021) and Saquon Barkley (97 in 2018).
I included mini scouting reports for players with an 80-plus grade this year, and I broke out full positional rankings -- which actually include 561 total players and as many as 76 per position. Let's get into it. Here's how my final board stacks up for 2023.
Overall rankings by grade:
90-96 | 80-89 | 70-79 | 60-69
50-59 | 40-49 | 30-39
QB | RB | FB | WR | TE | OT | G | C
DE | OLB | DT | ILB | CB | S | K | P | LS
