There have been subtle changes to my latest Top 25 Big Board, the last one before the start of the 2008 season. Changes from my initial 2008 Big Board are a result of fall workouts as well as film sessions over the past two months.

Weekly updates will resume, following the first full weekend of the season.

1. Eugene Monroe, OT, Virginia (6-5, 313) | Previous: N/A
Super blue chip left tackle with great feet.
