With the 2014 NFL draft approaching, teams are feverishly assembling their draft boards, ranking players in order based on their own preferences.

At SI, it's time for us to do that as well. Doug Farrar and Chris Burke have assembled their own definitive Big Board -- SI64 -- consisting of the players they feel deserve to be selected in the first two rounds. We'll be unveiling that board over the next few weeks, using tape study to define the best prospects in this class, and why they're slotted as such. Check back often to see how our Big Board unfolds.
