This is my Big Board for the 2011 NFL Draft. I do not rank redshirt sophomores simply because the odds that these players declare is extremely low, and I won’t speculate much on them as far as my rankings or mock drafts are concerned until we get closer toward the end of the season and we get some rumors on where prospects stand (sorry, Andrew Luck)

The last time I updated my Big Board was on May 3, but I don’t have that many changes taking place here because there haven’t been any games. Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett dropped like a rock from No. 26 overall to now being a third-round grade. Ohio State defensive lineman Cameron Heyward went from No. 6 overall to a second-round grade.

The biggest riser easily for me over the summer has been senior Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara. He is now No. 6 overall on my board after I watched some of his game tapes. He’s the best run support corner in the nation and is just an absolute playmaker. He lacks elite deep speed, but has plenty of athleticism and quickness to be regarded as one of the top prospects for the 2011 NFL Draft.

I have a key to better understand my star system:
: Elite Talent
: Top-8 Talent
: Solid First-Round Talent
: Fringe First-Round Talent; Very Strong Round 2 Talent
: Second-Round Talent
