This was a week when there simply wasn't a lot of movement on the Big Board. In my top five at each position, I moved up players like Dan Williams of Tennessee and Aaron Hernandez of Florida, but the changes were few among the elite.

Part of this, as you'd suspect, is that with more and more reps and tape piling up, guys are solidifying where they are as players. At least until juniors declare for the NFL draft or opt to stay for another season in college, and events such as the Senior Bowl, and all the subsequent testing once again throw it all into flux. One move was by Taylor Mays, who dropped out of the top five; I discuss him a little more in Behind the Big Board.
