There's not as much to say this week, with the new mock draft probably dominating the conversation, but make sure to keep an eye on this when you're evaluating the mocks. That's because the Big Board reflects overall player value. So if you're getting a player ranked in the top 10 here well into the teens in the draft, you're getting exceptional value.

So, at least in reference to my current mock, to get a guy like Colt McCoy (No. 25 here) in the second round is ideal. You get the idea. Here's the Board:
