Thompson Final Big Board and Player Rankings for the 2021 NFL Draft

Ladies and gentlemen, the 2021 NFL Draft gets closer and closer. Some of you have asked me about my rankings, and positional rankings for the 2021 Draft cycle. Well here they are, I know some of the takes are a bit controversial, but I trust my eyes and my gut.
