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.

You can check out the first 2010 mock draft here and the current Big Board here.


To get a good feel for draft depth at every position, you must be an ESPN Insider.
