Kiper's 2017 Big Board: Alabama LB jumps five spots

The college football season is just getting deep into conference play, and we already have a clearer picture on the best teams. Same goes for the best prospects. In this edition of my Big Board, an Alabama linebacker rises into the top 10, two offensive tackles drop a little bit and there are five new additions.

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

One asterisk denotes a junior, and two asterisks denote a redshirt sophomore for the 2016 season.

1. *Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M

Garrett appeared to have been hurt in the Aggies' win over Arkansas, but Texas A&M hasn't released information about his injury. Regardless, he's a brilliant, natural pass-rushing talent who, at 6-foot-5 and 265 pounds, has the length, strength and ability to bend the edge. He has 3.0 sacks this season after totaling 22.0 in his first two, and he looks like a top-five lock if he stays healthy. He comes from an athletic family -- both his brother and sister are great athletes.
