NFL Draft Big Board 2013: Matt Miller's Final Rankings

0 of 17

    Who are the top players for the 2013 NFL draft?

    The 2013 draft is unique in that the talent at the top is very much flat. In contrast with the 2012 class, this year has no Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III. Instead of a draft class dominated by the top four players, this year's crop has talent throughout.

    Some will tell you that this isn't a good draft class, and I couldn't disagree more. When we look back on this class in three or five years, we will see marquee starters from the top 100 picks. All-Pro-level players will be found here.

    Speaking of the top 100, it's important to note a few things. This is not a mock draft or a prediction of where players will be drafted. My Top 100 is a ranking of which players will be the best in the NFL. Much like an NFL team's war room, this is my big board.
