BIG BOARD | April 7
Editor's Note:'s NFL draft guru, Mel Kiper Jr., ranks his Top 25 prospects for the 2003 draft. Plus, check out the corresponding list of his top five prospects by position.

With the NFL draft less than a month away, it's a good time to update my Big Board. Notre Dame C Jeff Faine made the biggest jump on the board, rising from No. 21 to No. 13. Kentucky DT Dewayne Robertson jumped from No. 10 to No. 4.

Six prospects in my Top 25 were unranked on my previous Big Board, with USC S Troy Polamalu (No. 14) and Penn State DE Michael Haynes (No. 15) making the biggest splashes.
