by Thor Nystrom
Updated On: April 25, 2019, 6:38 pm ET

 

My final position rankings with around 550 players slotted total is below. For comps, SPARQ scores, and RAS scores, scroll to the right of each table. And for full breakdowns on these players, please check out all my position deep-dives. And if you want to see how they stack up overall, check out the Thor 500, my top-500 mega board.

I've also attached my final mock draft, published Thursday afternoon. Enjoy the draft this weekend, friends. I'll be working/watching from home, hanging out on Twitter through Saturday night. Please say hi, and I'm always happy to answer any questions you have. You can find me at @thorku.
