It's incredible how one player's stock can change so dramatically when he has a great or awful one this time of year. This is how guys slip under the radar or are overrated. You have to take a look at the entire body of work, have to consider things within context, etc.
Remember: In the NFL, guys player every week. Judging guys when they don't play for a month or longer is dangerous. Let's see how the Senior Bowl and Combine evolve before we get too crazy.

That's true to an extent, but bowl season is the first time many of us have seen a guy play and really studied him.  If the bowl was the first time you saw Russell play you might think he's the next Elway, when in reality he is very good, but that was his best game ever.

Well the Top five players hasn't changed too much, with the exception of the two Juniors who have declared. Early in the season Jemarcus Russell and Jamaal Anderson were listed as Top 10 players if they declared at the end of the year, so there haven't been any real surprises for where we're picking.

Red flags: 1. Too big or too small
2. (the biggest IMHO) Problems off the field
3. Just the term ''He's a project.'' Everybody's a project. When a guy isn't good enough to cut it on an elite D-I level when you draft him, it usually means he'll never cut it in the NFL. Not always, but it's almost an accident when he makes it.
