Check out the final Big Board HERE

 

With the draft officially just over a month away, the college draft big board is becoming more clear. There’s been some tremendous risers — Brandon Finnegan, A.J. Reed, and Zech Lemond among others — as well as numerous players that have seemingly stagnated thus far. 

And now that the sample sizes are becoming increasingly more reliable, I’ve started writing up individual draft reports for players (draft projection, ceiling, etc…). Click on the blue hyperlinks to take you to each report.
