Defensive board taking shape
Linemen own the top of the board; LB class lacks elite talent inside
We at Scouts Inc. continue to watch film and and monitor pro day workouts across the country. Below is a look at how our offensive board is stacked at this point, with each prospect (in order within position groups) assigned to the round most appropriate to his draft grade.
NFL teams use charts and boards similar to this one in conjunction with their overall rankings and team needs to avoid reaching for players too early and to keep an eye on players who might slip and turn into value picks later in the draft.
The vast majority of our evaluations are updated and while some players could move based on the interview process and upcoming medical tests, but the board is close to being locked in and this document gives a good feel for where players will end up.

How many players from a deep defensive end class grade out in the first round? Which defensive position does not have a player in the first two rounds? And where to the top kickers and punters stand? ESPN Insiders get all the answers.
