On the Clock podcast: Top 10 players on our early-season Big Board

Thursday September 24th, 2015

Football season may have just arrived, but NFL draft season is a year-long experience. For amateur scouts and forward-thinking NFL fans alike, welcome to the On the Clock NFL Draft Podcast with Chris Burke, a weekly look at the prospects of the 2016 draft and the NFL teams most in need of their services.

Disclaimer: These 2016 Big Boards are way, way too early for serious consideration, but with Robert Nkemdiche's dominant performance against Alabama and Jared Goff off to a hot start at the helm of Cal's offense, there's enough tape to examine where September's standouts may fall next spring as the draft class takes shape. On this week's episode, Burke is joined by Eric Galko of Optimum Scouting and Sporting News as the two compare their Big Boards of the top 10 players available. Then Burke takes a look at three players on the rise and three whose professional stock has taken a hit recently.

If you have any feedback, want us to break down a particular prospect or want to weigh on with your own draft predictions, reach out to Burke on Twitter, and don't forget to subscribe to the On The Clock podcast here.
