The 2016 NFL draft has arrived, and as NFL teams get their draft boards in order, Doug Farrar has assembled his own Big Board, featuring his top 50 players. The SI 50 uses tape study to define the best prospects in this class and break down their strengths and weaknesses which explain their rankings.

During the weeks leading up to the NFL draft, we published a scouting report for each player, complete with game tape from Draft Breakdown. You can keep track of all the scouting reports here by clicking on each player’s name for a full tape analysis.

Watch NFL Draft Live tonight, starting at 7:30 p.m. ET. Presented by MET-Rx and Carhartt.
