This week's Big Board shows a classic case of a player doing well in a key matchup and being rewarded for it. Last week, as previewed in our Matchups series, USC left tackle Charles Brown went up against the talented defensive ends of Ohio State. Brown's strong performance confirmed his possibilities and he moves onto the Board. Clemson tailback C.J. Spiller, a speedster who can also go between the tackles, and Penn State tackling machine Sean Lee have also landed on the board after strong starts.

At No. 1 ... it's still the guy that I explained won't go anywhere until his health allows an evaluation that says he's not the same dynamic player he's been to this point.
