No new Big Board this Thanksgiving week, as I instead got through another ranking of players by position. This hits the top 10 across every position, with a total of 150 players represented.

Remember: I'm listing prospects under projected NFL positions, and that can be a little tough with some of the more versatile players, even before you get into schemes. A college tackle could be listed at guard, a college defensive end listed at linebacker, and so on. Also: I'd give the edge to a senior over a junior in a close call at the back end of a top 10, due to the certainty the senior will be in the draft.

* Denotes junior
** Denotes third-year sophomore



1. *Marcus Mariota, Oregon
2. **Jameis Winston, Florida St.
3. *Brett Hundley, UCLA
4. *Connor Cook, Michigan St.
5. Bryce Petty, Baylor
6. Bryan Bennett, Southeastern Louisiana
7. Garrett Grayson, Colorado St.
8. *Dak Prescott, Mississippi St.
9. *Everett Golson, Notre Dame
10. Sean Mannion, Oregon St.

The back end of this list has shifted a great deal during the season as I've spent time on QBs. Bennett is a new arrival, as is Grayson and Golson. Gone are Cody Fajardo, Shane Carden and Taylor Heinicke. The constant has been Mariota at No. 1 -- he's been really what you'd hope for a player in his position and has made it easy to keep him there. Some big decisions await, and not just for Hundley -- who could have entered the 2014 draft -- but for Cook.
