Jones is the only Big East player on that list.

Kiper Jr. doesn't have a new mock draft out, but he updated his big board Insider and Top 5 player rankings Insider by position. No changes to report there. He still has UConn defensive tackle Kendall Reyes among his Top 5 at that position, and Syracuse safety Phillip Thomas in the top five as well.
