Notes from NFL.com’s Daniel Jeremiah and his latest Big Board

One of the more difficult things for novice NFL draft fans to understand is “positional relativity” which, in case you can’t tell, is a phrase I just made up on the spot. But before trying to predict who your favorite team will draft, it’s good to understand where players project to fit best at the NFL level. Daniel Jeremiah from NFL.com broke down his newest Top 50 big board and I’ve taken some notes on where he projects them to excel.

    Analysis: “Haskins is the No. 1 quarterback in this draft. There is real concern over his limited experience—one season—as a starter (play the TCU, Penn State or Purdue tape), but he bounced back from midseason struggles and finished the year strong.”
