My latest Big Board now reflects the underclassmen who have declared for April's draft, and they make up almost half of the top 25. Junior Darren McFadden is the No. 1 prospect in the draft, but that doesn't mean he will be the first overall pick. Also with underclassmen, accurate and official mearsurables (height, weight, vertical leap) won't be available until the combine workouts. Right now, their spots on the Big Board are based on performance and potential at the next level.


Few interesting notes from the latest top 25 Big Board:

• Nine of the top 13 players are linemen (six defensive, three offensive).

• Notable schools currently not represented in the top 25 are Florida, Texas, Georgia, West Virginia and Tennessee

• There are only three schools with more than one player on the Big Board: USC (4), Miami (2) and Arkansas (2).


The article was longer, but ya have to be a paying member to read it and I ain't!

As would I, Malcolm Kelly is also noticeably absent.

Woodson throws a really nice ball, but I've soured on him a little bit. He made some big mistakes in big games this year, and finished things off with erroneous play and awful game management against a bad FSU defense as a senior.

He is still a better pro spec than an overrated Matt Ryan and Brian Brohm

My thoughts exactly, I like Woodson but I wouldn't want to take him with a top 15 pick. I am meh on Ryan and think he is being overrated b/c of a lack of good QB prospects and Brohm's stock plummeted this year.

I think Stewart is the safer pick, but Felix has the higher ceiling

I'm surprised Dorsey isn't #1. Also surprised that Stewart isn't a bit higher. Finally, I'm a bit surprised Douset was dropped.

You may notice I edited the first post today - nothing major, just forgot to put Jake in his team colors! :-D

(Dunno how I overlooked that - I'm so ashamed!)
