With the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine in the books, draft season is in full swing and we will begin seeing where players will be ranking among the rest of the prospects in the draft class. Every week the latest buzz will let us know the risers and fallers of the class, which will be reflected in our weekly big board.
While each team and draftnik in the scouting community will have their own Big Board, we want to provide you with our own look at the 2014 draft class.
