Ranking top junior or draft-eligible sophomore NFL prospects, by position

As anyone who follows the NFL draft knows, many top prospects in the draft come from the junior class. The majority of players on my latest Big Board come from this group.

This should offer a good reflection of the depth at each position group, but expect these rankings to shift plenty during the season. In fact, many guys here are full-time starters for the first time, so it'll be time to justify the hype.
