Updated 2011 NFL Draft Big Board

New, comments

Draft Big Boards are a major part of the process as it helps develop your best player available list.  My Big Board has remained fluid for most the the year and it continues to change as we inch closer to the draft.  I have mentioned several times that I don't let the results of workouts make a significant impact on my rankings.  However, they do play a roll and cannot be ignored.  After the jump, you will see some minor changes to my Big Board with several players making their way into the back end of the ranking.

The biggest mover is Washington linebacker Mason Foster who moved into the #30 spot in my rankings.  Foster is not a flashy player but the more I watch the more I love.  He has the ability and instincts to be an impact linebacker in the NFL.  He is likely a 2nd round pick but whoever selects him will be getting great value.  Foster has the potential to fit several different schemes and is the type of player that is always around the football.
