2013 NFL Draft Big Board: April 25, 2012

Could Florida State's Brandon Jenkins be a top 5 pick in the 2013 NFL Draft?

With the start of the 2012 NFL Draft about 20 hours away, below is my first big board for the 2013 NFL Draft. One thing early big boards tend to do is place way too much emphasis on quarterbacks. I found one a few hours ago that had five quarterbacks in its top 25 prospects! I know I had Georgia QB Aaron Murray as the No. 7 overall player in my Top 100 college football players for 2012 article, but I don’t even have him ranked on the big board below. Remember people, a big board reflects NFL readiness. Right now, I’m more confident in USC’s Matt Barkley, Arkansas’ Tyler Wilson, and Tennessee’s Tyler Bray (who many people have way too high).

RISING: DE Brandon Jenkins (Florida State), QB Tyler Bray (Tennessee)
QB Landry Jones (Oklahoma), QB Aaron Murray (Georgia)
WATCH FOR: WR Justin Hunter (Tennessee)
