Mel Kiper's latest 2010 Big Board

There's some movement this week. Based on what I'm hearing regarding the health of his shoulder, I've moved Sam Bradford ahead of Jimmy Clausen. That's not a huge surprise, because I've been saying it since Bradford was hurt -- this is a guy who was a potential No. 1 pick last year, and a physical issue that, from all indications, simply won't detract at all from what Bradford can do. One other notable: Taylor Mays has dropped out of the top 25 after continuing his slide with a less than impressive showing in Mobile. Out of the first round? Well, the new mock is next week. But not likely.
