We're on to the 2023 NFL Draft. Sporting News constructed its first Top 50 Big Board, and it's flush with talent from the usual college football powerhouses. Alabama leads all schools with nine players on the list, including two of the top three players in quarterback Bryce Young and edge rusher Will Anderson. Ohio State and Notre Dame are next with four players each. The Buckeyes have the top player in quarterback C.J. Stroud, and Notre Dame tight end Michael Mayer also made the top-10. Georgia and Clemson have three players each. The Bulldogs are led by defensive tackle Jalen Carter, and Clemons has a nasty defense coming back led by defensive linemen Bryan Bresee and Myles Murphy.
