The "Top 100 Projection" is that item at DraftBoardGuru.com for which the credibility of the site has been built over the past decade.  It is my hope in 2017 to once again provide an accurate, well-studied, researched, and polished list for my draft colleagues, friends, and the enthusiasts that visit this website.  This site strives to be the best at two things:  Projecting the Top 100 prospects and slotting the players into a very close coordinate to where they will be expected to be drafted (see Offensive and Defensive Value Boards)  Please give me feedback and/or constructive criticism to this list via email (coachdmartz@hotmail.com) or twitter (twitter.com/DraftBoardGuru).  - Doug Martz

Note about Top 100 List:
Although Top 100 sounds easy, quick, and painless (like a 10-minute job)...  nothing could be further from the truth.  Designing and narrowing this list down from an initial group of over 700+ to a chunk of 100 guys that will go in the first 100 selections is the hardest line of work for draft preparations.  It's also my favorite here at DraftBoardGuru.com.  The process involves as much naked-eye assessment of how these players are slotted into a draft position as possible.  Along with that, keen research on official team visits, pro-day workouts, and combine workouts are extremely valuable. Special consideration is also given to the regular season collegiate games and how the players did against other good (draftable) athletes.  The part of the Top 100 that's easy is the first 50.  It's that next 50 that takes hours upon hours to narrow down.  Finally, it's the players from #80 to #100 that makes the difference to whether this list can be credible or not.  The difference between scoring in the high 80's on this task (a good score) and getting a 70 depends on what happens in the final half of round three of the NFL draft.  Although mock drafting and building draftboards are fun, they pail in comparison to the workload involved in the slotting of players into a successful Top 100 list.
