    The Senior Bowl not only shook up my Big Board of the top 25 NFL draft prospects, but also my listing of the top five prospects at each position.

    Quarterbacks Jason Campbell of Auburn and Charlie Frye of Akron both looked good at the Senior Bowl, but Campbell edged ahead of Frye thanks to a more consistent week of practice. Oklahoma wide receiver Mark Clayton also looked good and got himself into position to challenge for the No. 3 spot among this year's wideout class. But the biggest moves on offense were made along the line. Washington tackle Khalif Barnes and Utah guard Chris Kemoeatu both rank No. 2 at their position after being unranked the last time around.

    On the defensive side, LSU's Marcus Spears looked very good at the Senior Bowl and is back among the top ends while Troy's Demarcus Ware has bulked up a bit and now rates as a top outside linebacker. Three of the five names at safety are new to the rankings as well.
