New Big Board has Paxton Lynch and Jarran Reed rising

A few more notables moves this week, as I've moved Paxton Lynch up a little more after another big performance against top competition, and I've also added another Alabama defensive tackle to the Big Board.

A reminder: General scouting reports on these players won't change much week to week, unless my overall evaluation changes. I'll simply be updating performance notes and providing updates on key matchups to come.

An asterisk denotes a junior for the 2015 season.

1. *Robert Nkemdiche, DT, Ole Miss Rebels

It has been a disappointing stretch for the team, but no slide in his stock. Great size, great burst, great versatility, and great at disrupting. He explodes off the snap like a guy 40-50 pounds lighter. And Nkemdiche isn't just quick; he also has strength at the point and doesn't get eaten up by double-teams. If he stays healthy he'll end up in the top five.

2. *Joey Bosa, DE, Ohio State Buckeyes

He's finding his form. He's an explosive pass-rusher who has power, awareness and is consistently disruptive against the run. Bosa has size -- he's 6-6, 275 pounds, and could play bigger -- versatility that will fit any scheme and the ability to go around blockers or right through them.

3. *Jared Goff, QB, California Golden Bears

It's not just a system. Goff can not only drill the ball down the field and into tight windows with ease but also has a changeup and proper trajectory. He has effective movement skills and anticipation for a player with good length who seems to see the whole field. He can also move defenders with his eyes pretty well and will continue to get better.
