Stacking the Board
The Offensive Draft Value Chart
Offensive Value-Board Ratings:
* Final Update *
04/24/18
*** This is the projected order (stacked-board style) for which the players will come off the board during the draft. Rounds 1 & 2 are each whittled into sectors "1A, 1B, etc."  In this case, "1A," for example, stands for picks in the first one-third of Rd.1, and something like "2C" would equate to the last one-third of Rd. 2.  Likewise, in Rd's 3-7 all players are stacked vertically by way of their grade / expected order drafted in that round.***

165 Offensive Players are ranked here for the 2018 Draft:
On average, this site has slotted around 170 offensive players by the time the draft rolls around, so this year's list is just a bit short of that average due to the draft class not being quite as strong as usual over a five-year period.  Smaller "grade-able" numbers are present this year at OT, TE, and WR than on average, while the positions of QB, RB, and interior OL remain at average or in the case of Interior OL, very much above average.  The centers and guards in the '18 draft are fantastic.
 
The prospects are ranked in a formula based off of collegiate success coupled with where they will be expected to go "off the board." Based on past success, this chart will be quite handy on draft day in following the process unfold round by round.  The strongest offensive positions are interior offensive line and running back.  Both have top-end talent and overall depth.  QB is, of course, an extremely talented group up top with six high caliber players found inside the top 50 prospects.  The QB depth is decent in the mid and late rounds, but not spectacular.  As stated earlier, WR/TE/OT are rather weak positions in the 2018 draft and teams that have those needs will have to make their selections early; in some cases inflating the value of mid-round prospects at those positions.
