2021 NFL Draft: Buddy’s final top 10 positional rankings

Thursday night’s NFL Draft can’t get here soon enough. The E2G Sports team can’t sleep. We’re all giddy with anticipation. Our E2G Draft Day party is this Saturday, which you should all RSVP for! Good things are happening, but like a kid on Christmas Eve, we can’t wait any longer!

So, what did I decide to do with all this energy? Put it to use. We’ve brought you our E2G Sports first-round mock draft. Then we published our top 100 NFL Draft board. So, why don’t we do a top 10 positional rankings? Why not put all this knowledge on the page?
