Some handy combine links

Here are a few key resources, some available for free and others through the ESPN Insider package, to keep close at hand as the NFL moves through its extended scouting combine weekend.

  • Draft analyst Mel Kiper has an updated Big Board, ranking his top 25 players in this year’s draft. You need a subscription for this one, but I can tell Detroit fans that he has defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh ranked ahead of defensive tackle Gerald McCoy. Green Bay fans might be interested to know that Iowa left tackle Bryan Bulaga is ranked No. 21.

  • Scouts Inc. maintains a top 32 list on ESPN’s draft page, fully available to all readers. McCoy is ranked No. 1 and Suh is No. 2 on this list. Bulaga is No. 12.

  • For those interested, here is the official invite list of every player who has the opportunity to work out over the next four days.

  • Kiper has ranked his top 5 players at each position. Bulaga is ranked as the third-best offensive tackle.

I’ll do my best to pass along the news and analytical adjustments that arise as the combine gets in gear.
