BIG BOARD: Kiper's Top 25 NFL prospects | Dec. 18
Another new Big Board, another junior making his debut. After Virginia Tech RB Kevin Jones made his first appearance back on Dec. 5, Washington WR Reggie Williams has declared for the NFL draft and enters the board at No. 8, one spot ahead of Jones.

The top seven six have remained the same ahead of Williams, but there has been some shuffling behind them. And while the Big Board is still reserved for seniors and those juniors who have opted to forego their final year of eligibility, there will be plenty of changes ahead as more underclassmen enter the draft process.

And don't forget about some seniors who are making late pushes and improving their overall rating: Florida State LB Michael Boulware; Oklahoma LB Teddy Lehman; South Florida DB J.R. Reed; USC OT Jacob Rogers; Kansas St. DB Rashad Washington; Notre Dame LB Courtney Watson; and West Virginia RB Quincy Wilson
