2011 Player Database and New Positional Rankings are out

Written by Ben Morgan on 12/13/2010

If you're familiar with Draft Board Insider you'll know about out Prospects page.  It's the jumping off point for all our scouting reports, positional rankings and Top 100 rated prospects for the 2011 draft. We currently have about 320 players lined up for the 2011 draft, although a fair few of them are underclassmen who may not declare. The number of underclassmen may be well down this year due to uncertainty over a potential NFL lockout as well. But for now, we've put in the sort of underclassmen who usually declare for the draft and we'll adjust it when the official list comes out.

Below is a snapshot of the Prospects page as of today. Curt will update the rankings periodically but we have a current Top 10 for most positions and a highly tentative Top 100. The Top 100 comes in position order right now but that will change. So no, we don't think Nick Foles is the 5th best NFL prospect.

This year we've taken notice of the increasing importance of the 3-4 Defensive Front in the NFL and added separate categories for guys Curt thinks would shine under that system.
