2016 NFL Draft Big Board: Matt Miller's Post-Combine Rankings

    The top players in the 2016 NFL draft class have been weighed, measured, timed, poked and prodded at the annual NFL Scouting Combine, and the results of that pressure-cooker weigh heavily on the updated top-300 big board.

    Which players rose to the occasion? Who fell flat in the biggest job interview of their life?

    The 2016 draft class is shaping up to be a solid one—somewhere between the talent levels of 2015 and 2013—with great depth at defensive tackle, more talent than last year's class at quarterback and an impressive group of cornerbacks, linebackers and running backs. And while the class is oddly weak at edge-rusher, and as weak as expected at tight end and safety, there is talent.

    The scouts just have to find it.

    Before pro days and private workouts kick off, and before final grades are entered on each player, here is an updated look at the top 300 overall, as well as each position's rankings.
