The big event is almost here, and it’s time to finalize the draft board. Each of the position groups have been ranked and combined into one list of RealSport’s top 450 prospects in the 2018 class, from your Ohio State’s and Alabama’s through to Division III schools.

It’s a solid-looking class overall, despite some questions of quality in the early discussions, and plenty of depth to unearth some late round and free agent gems. RealSport’s board features 310 prospects with a draftable grade, up slightly from 290 the previous year.

The players on the draft board below are broken into groups based on their grades. In terms of more in-depth discussion on the majority of the top prospects, please refer to our Top 10 by position series in the link below.

NFL Draft 2018 Position Rankings.

This is just one person’s opinion, adding to the many available at this time of the year! As with every draft class, there will be some gradings proven correct, plenty wrong, and some likely very wrong, such is the nature of the process. Part of the fun of the draft is that no two boards are alike, and that results in all the drama and debate both during and after.

Enjoy the final stages of the buildup to the draft and the three days in Dallas itself!
