The guys just off the Big Board
They're not top 25 now, but names like Mardy Gilyard could shine
There's plenty of consensus building on who will be sitting near the top of the first mock drafts. Of course, we can't say much with any certainty until an actual draft order is established. And while things are bound to change significantly after the senior all-star games and the combine, it's fair to say that aside from some new additions -- and I predict I'll have at least one significant add for next week -- the Big Board will play a big part in the first round selections I pick when we mock it up in January.
But it only goes to 25, so let's flesh out the guys I see as sitting between 26 and 32 right now. Not in any order, mind you, but all in the mix.
