The 2021 NFL Draft is almost upon us, so we thought it would be helpful to break down the top prospects in the draft, regardless of position. So did I rank the Top 100? Top 200? Top 250?

Nope.

Here are my Top 300 prospects heading into the draft. Now you might look at this list and think it’s made just for hot takes or controversial opinions, but that’s not the case at all.
