It's a quiet week on the Big Board, as the bigger story is my mock that goes through the first four rounds of the draft. Still, it's worth keeping an eye on this week as you look at projections, because of the value factor. If you're getting a player ranked in the top 10 here well into the teens in the draft (mock or otherwise), 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:
