I'm sure this Big Board will fly under the radar a bit, considering the dual mock draft we posted Wednesday. But here it is.

That said, this is a great database for those trying to infer their team's draft strategy. Players like C.J. Spiller are higher here than on my mock, and thus represent great value there. But as I talk to league sources and get a feel for how the draft might play out, it's fair to say not everybody evaluates talent in the same way I do. The Big Board represents pure overall value.
