Similar to how we compiled our own Cleveland Browns Big Board for the 2017 NFL Draft here at Dawgs By Nature, Pro Football Focus also took the time to compile big boards that were specific to each of the 32 teams in the NFL.

Let's take a look at their rankings below within the Top 50. The first column below is PFF's ranking of the player specifically for the Browns. The final column is where that player appeared on the DBN Big Board; in parenthesis is the difference between the PFF ranking and the DBN ranking.
