Mel Kiper's latest 2010 Big Board
In the latest Big Board, we have a change in the top 5. Ndamukong Suh rightfully moves up after a dominating performance against Virginia Tech -- yes, in a loss -- in which he not only was disruptive in the manner great defensive tackles often are, but also batted down four passes, a fantastic stat. It's a case where a guy is just relentlessly active, regardless of whether he's double-teamed or chasing down a quarterback. He affects the play. I've said it before: Suh could be at the top of this when all is said and done.
Other changes see C.J. Spiller flying up the list and Jermaine Gresham back in the mix. Yeah, Gresham is hurt, but the guy is going to be a first-round pick without question, so he might as well stay on the board. He'll have plenty of time to work out with scouts before the draft, and he's an outstanding player -- the board ought to reflect that. From there, well, on to the arguments.
