It's time to present our final rankings -- a full top 300 -- for the 2018 NFL draft class. The first 100 players below have scouting reports written by Steve Muench and myself, along with his Scouts Inc. grade in parentheses.

If you're looking for a positional breakdown, it's after the top 300 prospects list.

Top 300
1-25 | 26-50 | 51-75 | 76-100
101-150 | 151-200 | 201-250 | 251-300

Position rankings

1. Saquon Barkley, RB, Penn State* (Grade: 97)

The top prospect on our board, Barkley projects as an every-down back with the elite talent and intangibles to become a franchise-changing player. He's gifted enough to emerge as an All-Pro-caliber player early in his career.

2. Bradley Chubb, DE, NC State (95)

Chubb has a prototypical build, plays a lot of snaps, has some experience in coverage and compares favorably to Ravens pass-rusher Terrell Suggs. He grades out as a high-impact NFL edge defender and is one of the best all-around players in this class.

3. Quenton Nelson, G, Notre Dame* (95)

Nelson is a road grader who excels at getting into defenders and moving them off the ball. He anchors well, and his wide frame and strong hands tend to mask his athletic limitations when he's forced to mirror. Nelson is one of the best guard prospects in recent history.
