The regular season is now over, but my evaluation of seniors has not stopped. There continues to be some movement within my Top 25 Big Board; of course, the Big Board will change even more once underclassmen declare for next April's NFL draft.

One player making his debut on the Big Board this week is Ohio State quarterback Troy Smith. Smith is a proven winner and has been at his best in the Buckeyes biggest game, and is most likely going to walk away with the Heisman Trophy on Saturday.
