The NFL Draft begins this evening. So why not print out a card and keep score? We’ve compiled a Consensus Big Board so you can keep track of the picks at home. There are four ranking columns. The first set of rankings is the rank by the whole consensus board, with every analyst included. The next two are ranks by the Forecaster and Evaluator Boards — the differences are explained here. The final set of rankings modifies the consensus for analytical success, a discussion you can find here.
We’ve done a lot with the consensus board. We’ve figured out who did the best job of predicting player performance in 2014 and 2015, tracked who has the weirdest big boards (and who predicts the draft the best), found out which players no one could agree on and we’ll use it to grade the draft after all the festivities are over.
