TDN100: TDN’s Initial 2023 NFL Draft Rankings

The 2022 NFL Draft cycle was our fourth here at The Draft Network but the first in which we embraced one of our biggest projects to date: the TDN100. Our scouting department begins assessing every draft class early on—we’re doing regional grades in May, assessing players throughout the college season, and then partaking in deep dives and cross-checks throughout the winter and spring. TDN100 is our way of keeping all of you in the loop throughout the year.

With the TDN100, our scouting staff shares their consensus top-100 prospects eligible for the NFL draft each month. The goal is to keep you all up to speed with our assessments as we gain more information while also showcasing just how fluid this process is and how quickly players can claim top prospect status along the way. Whether you’re a prospect like Aidan Hutchinson, who went wire-to-wire as a TDN100 player last year, or Jameson Williams, who wasn’t ranked in our first release of TDN100 last August, everything from here is open season. Consider this a starting point.

We’re ready to debut our first set of TDN100 rankings for the 2023 NFL Draft. Here are the averaged rankings of The Draft Network’s five-person scouting team, including rankings from Keith Sanchez, Damian Parson, Brentley Weissman, Kyle Crabbs, and Joe Marino.
