Optimum Scouting’s Projected Top-100 Picks in the 2016 NFL Draft


Every year, The Huddle Report collects Top-100 “projected” picks for each years draft, and compares the top NFL Draft websites to see who can predict the Top-100 picks best. Please note that this Top-100 projection is more indicative of what we believe will happen, rather than what our scouting reports reflect should happen.

Again, thanks again to The Huddle Report for collecting and doing this work!

*Along with sorted by position group, they also are sorted by the order I believe they will be taken in that position on draft day*
