2015 NFL Draft Preview - Cleveland Browns Big Board (Staff Edition)

A comprehensive look at all of the Cleveland Browns big boards you could ask for leading up to the 2015 NFL Draft.

For the past several weeks, Dawgs By Nature fans have been voting to compile a Cleveland Browns Big Board for the top 45 players who would be of most interest to the Browns. In short, the way a big board works is where you ask yourself, "if we could choose from any possible player in the draft, who would I take first? If that player is gone, who would I take instead? And so on..."

Now, it is time to look at the personal Browns Big Boards for each of our staff members at DBN. If you have any questions as to why a certain player is ranked somewhere on a person's board, feel free to ask in the comments section. Also, let us know whose big board you feel best represents your line of thinking.

Note: These rankings were compiled before the recent news about DE/OLB Shane Ray.

2015 Cleveland Browns - Cumulative DBN Big Board

This big board takes the cumulative players rankings from all eight big boards above for one comprehensive ranking. If a player was not ranked on somebody's big board above, the formula I came up with was to treat them as No. 46 on that person's board when figuring out the average.
