Fuller's 2020 NFL Draft Big Board 5.0: Post-Super Bowl, Pre-Combine Rankings

By Samuel Fuller

There's a VERY good chance all three of these championship-winning LSU Tigers hear their names (S Grant Delpit, QB Joe Burrow and LB Patrick Queen) called on night one of the draft.

Now that the official NFL draft order is set and the NFL Combine invitees have been announced, it was time to update my player rankings and post a new big board. Not much has changed at the very top, as the draft will still most likely begin with Joe Burrow heading to Cincinnati, but significant moves up and down the board were still made:

- Alabama OT Jedrick Wills soared up the board, moving from a late first-rounder to standing as the top O-Lineman and seventh-best prospect.

- Louisville OL Mekhi Becton saw a jump from a mid-second round grade to 14th overall, a move that in real life would mean millions more.

- LSU LB Patrick Queen was on the cusp of being a Day 3 pick, but after a solid National Championship run and his official commitment to the draft process, he's shot up to 29th overall with a legitimate shot at being the first inside linebacker taken.

- TCU DL Ross Blacklock, Auburn CB Noah Igbinoghene, and Michigan C Cesar Ruiz all saw their stock rise from a mid-round status to the mid-to-late second-round range.

- Other players that boosted their stock by at least fifty spots include LSU RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Michigan OLB Josh Uche, Minnesota S Antoine Winfield Jr., Florida WR Van Jefferson, Baylor WR Denzel Mims, Lenoir-Rhyne S Kyle Dugger, North Carolina DE Jason Strowbridge, Temple C Matt Hennessey, and South Carolina WR Bryan Edwards.

- The biggest slide down the board was without a doubt Missouri TE Albert Okwuegbunam (-46), but other big drops include Alabama OLB Anfernee Jennings (-20), Minnesota WR Tyler Johnson (-19), Oregon LB Troy Dye (-29), Notre Dame CB Troy Pride Jr., (-20), Oregon C Jake Hanson (-27), and Florida DE Jabari Zuniga (-24).
