This time of year, juniors and seniors are combined into one list that includes all declared draftees. So the pair of "top 5s" now consist of the guys in the draft, and then the players who could have been draft-eligible but opted to stay in school.

You can check out my latest 2010 mock draft here.

With the combine going through this weekend, these rankings will change -- the next mock draft, a joint effort with Todd McShay of Scouts Inc., will take place March 10 -- but the most relevant pre-combine change for this week is Jonathan Dwyer of Georgia Tech dropping off the top 5 eligible RBs list, with Anthony Dixon of Mississippi State replacing him.
