BIG BOARD: Kiper's Top 25 senior NFL prospects | Sept. 19

1. Roy Williams, WR, Texas (6-4, 213) | previous ranking: same
Williams is the clear No. 1. Had he declared for the 2003 draft, he likely would have been an overall top 10-15 pick and the third receiver off the board, behind Michigan State's Charles Rogers and Miami's Andre Johnson. As a junior in 2002, he returned to the all-world form he displayed as a freshman after slipping somewhat as a sophomore (when he averaged just 12.5 yards per catch).
