We at Scouts Inc. have finished up final film work on each of the 300-plus prospects to whom we gave full draft evaluations, and the board has been shuffled a bit after all that work.

The biggest change is at defensive tackle, where there is a new name atop the positional ranking and solidly in the top 10 overall. The defensive line as a whole remains one of the deepest areas in this draft, with 10 players among the top 32.

A trio of quarterbacks remain among the top 10, but none crack the board beyond that threshold. As for other positions, only one safety and one guard make the list, while five offensive tackles and four cornerbacks are part of this week's ranking.

Here's how the entire top 32 looks at this point; juniors and third-year sophomores are noted with an asterisk.
