With the NFL Scouting Combine on the horizon and the 2014 NFL Draft less than three months away, teams are starting to set up their boards of the draft’s top prospects, and so are we here at Buffalo Bills Draft.

Over the next four pages, take a look at how BBD assistant editor Joe Marino currently ranks the draft’s top 100 prospects.

Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater is the consensus top quarterback in the 2014 NFL draft class, but two names could vault themselves into the same discussion as Bridgewater with great seasons. Those two are Tajh Boyd of Clemson and David Fales of San Jose State. Both are contenders for the top spot with their own key qualities that make them successful.

We’ll take a look at Boyd on page 1, then look at Fales and compare the two on page 2.

After breaking down the top 50 prospects in my initial top 100 big board, I am back to give you the rest of the top 100 to digest, with many great players still on the board. This draft class has the makings to be one of the best in a long, long time, with all of these players having the potential to work their way up into the top 50.

51. Gabe Jackson, OG, Mississippi State

A pure mauler on the line of scrimmage. Fires off with powerful hands and quick-twitch movements in fundamentals. Has a chance to be a top-20 pick if he can supplant David Yankey on my big board later on.

52. Ra’Shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota

Hageman’s pure size and raw ability will draw scouts’ eyes right when they pop in the tape on him. Even with his more-than-300-pound frame, he moves like a cat. Hageman is reminiscent of an even more athletically-gifted Montori Hughes (Indianapolis Colts’ 5th-round pick from Tennessee-Martin).


2014 NFL Draft Big Board: Evan Sidery’s Initial Top 50

Even though the 2013 NFL Draft just over two weeks ago, it is already time to start talking about the 2014 draft class. I thought 2013 was a deep class, but the 2014 draft class looks even deeper, with many big-name prospects not even cracking the top 50. Sit back and enjoy my first part of my initial top 100 big board below.

*Players with remaining eligibility following the 2013 college football season are asterisked

1. Jadeveon Clowney, DE/OLB, South Carolina*

The man is an absolute freak. If Clowney was eligible to come out in 2013, he would have been the first overall pick. Jadeveon is the Andrew Luck-type prospect on defense (once in a generation). He will be given the highest grade by me I have ever given once I start doing my scouting report series.
