As I said last week, these positional rankings have undergone an important change as we condense the juniors and seniors boards into one list that includes all eligible and declared draftees. For example, if you look at the first category -- quarterbacks -- you'll see that Jimmy Clausen and Sam Bradford are now 1-2, ahead of Colt McCoy, who was No. 1 on this position list just last week. Clausen and Bradford were obviously juniors, but are now declared draftees, so they move here.
Mel Kiper offers up his top five declared players by position as of Jan. 28, 2010. For the first time, this list now includes declared juniors such as QB Sam Bradford, QB Jimmy Clausen and S Eric Berry since they can no longer return to college.
