Bleacher Report

● By Staff
The autumn wind calls, and the Bleacher Report Scouting Department has gathered to piece together its initial NFL draft board for the 2023 class. Through eight weeks of play, college football has provided significant talent to evaluate, with projected top talents living up to expectations and others surprising with standout performances. Initial impressions suggest this is a stronger class than the one last April, particularly at the quarterback position. The department pieced together its Top 100 based on early-season viewings, though the process remains ongoing. As such, not every draft-eligible prospect is included as the scouts make their way through hundreds of players. The following are the best seen to date, and these rankings should serve as the introductory step toward building a complete view of this cycle.
