ESPN draft guru Mel Kiper has released his latest post combine big board and we've got some big changes.
For one, Damontre Moore, who was his 3rd ranked player is now out of his top 25 altogether. He also now has Central Michigan's Eric Fisher ahead of Texas A&M's Luke Joeckel as the top offensive tackle.
Nobody even knew who Fisher was when the season started, but he could go top 5. He had a good combine, and a few questions were raised on Joeckel. Fluker has been rising, but he'll stay at RT. Johnson is the guy who has really moved up in recent weeks. A one-time QB, his ceiling appears high.
In addition, Mel now has Matt Barkley over Geno Smith as the top QB. But as for the Eagles big holes...
Dion Jordan has risen to the top of his list of defensive ends, but he notes that a good portion of those guys will likely switch to OLB in the NFL. Barkevious Mingo, Bjoern Werner, Ezekiel Ansah & Datone Jones round his top 5.
Like many scouts, he's also got Florida DT Sharrif over Star Lotulelei.
As for the corners, not a lot has changed at the top, but there are some new names in Kiper's top 5.
