Russell moves past Quinn as top QB on Big Board
With a better body of work and stronger performances in big games, LSU's JaMarcus Russell has moved past Notre Dame's Brady Quinn as the top quarterback prospect on Mel Kiper Jr.'s Top 25 Big Board.
Simply put, Russell's body of work was better than Quinn's. Russell's overall performance in big games against elite competition was better than that of Quinn's. Head-to-head in the Sugar Bowl, Russell looked better against Notre Dame than Quinn did against LSU.
The NFL combine starts this week in Indianapolis, so you can expect more movement and changes on the Big Board and my first-round projections after the combine and individual workouts take place.
