Matt Miller Releases 2019 NFL Draft Big Board + Position Rankings

February 27, 2019

The NFL Combine has officially started and eight former Notre Dame players will have a chance to improve their draft stock over the next few days. 

Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller released his 2019 NFL Draft Big Board on Wednesday and it takes a look at the top players at the NFL Combine, but he also ranked the positions. 

Defensive lineman Jerry Tillery was the only Notre Dame prospect in Miller’s Top 50 as the Louisiana native checked in at No. 41. 

When it comes to the running back position, Miller ranked Dexter Williams as the 9th best back in the class, which was five spots ahead of Stanford running back Bryce Love. 

In an absolutely loaded defensive line class, Tillery checks in at No. 6 behind Quinnen Williams (Alabama), Rashan Gary (Michigan), Jeffery Simmons (Mississippi State), Ed Oliver (Houston) and Christian Wilkins (Clemson). 

Miller ranked Te’von Coney as the No. 11 linebacker at the combine behind Devin White (LSU), Devin Bush (Michigan), Mack Wilson (Alabama), Germaine Pratt (NC State), Tre Lamar (Clemson), Terrill Hanks (New Mexico State), David Long Jr. (West Virginia), Vosean Joseph (Florida), Bobby Okereke (Stanford) and Cameron Smith (USC). 

Perhaps the most surprising move on the list was the fall of cornerback Julian Love. Miller dropped Love to No. 8 on his list because of speed questions and the rise of other cornerbacks. Love was ranked behind Byron Murphy (Washington), Greedy Williams (LSU), DeAndre Baker (Georgia), Trayvon Mullen (Clemson), Rock Ya-Sin (Temple), Sean Buntin (Central Michigan) and Joejuan Williams (Vanderbilt). 

You can watch the NFL Combine starting March 1st on the NFL Network when on-field workouts begin for running backs, offensive linemen, kickers and special teams prospects.
