Mel Kiper's latest 2010 Big Board
I address it further in Behind the Big Board, but as you can see with the latest addition to the Big Board, the amount of defensine lineman (both tackles and ends) is becoming extraordinary. The juniors who have crashed the party later in the season certainly add a lot, but in any event, if you have a need for a good interior or edge lineman -- or even an outside guy in a 3-4 -- this is a draft in which you should be able to get a lot of value.
Again, I'm not saying you could see this many guys come flying off the board in the first round of the draft. What I am saying is that if teams simply drafted without regard to need, you could see a run on these types. Some may fall to the second round from this group, but not because they deserve to.

To see who climbed and fell on the latest Big Board, you must be an ESPN Insider.
