The lists below spotlight the top seniors in the country by position. Here you'll find guys such as Jake Locker, Anthony Castonzo, Daniel Thomas, Noel Devine and more.

Most everyone here has played his bowl game, so you see some small fluctuations -- at TE, OT, DE, ILB, OLB, etc. As various scouting combines roll out, the lists will only change more.

Two most notable changes here: I added Vincent Brown from SDSU to the WRs list, and I made Ahmad Black, out of Florida, the No. 1 safety, replacing DeAndre McDaniel.

All stats here are from 2010.
