Latest Big Board
By Kevin Gemmell
Mel Kiper's latest Big Board is out and -- as expected -- no movement this week from either of Stanford's players. Andrew Luck remains at No. 1 and offensive tackle Jonathan Martin is at No. 6.
Another great week, and while Luck has some good targets, they aren't elite; he makes everyone look better.
Martin actually missed some time in against USC with an ankle injury, but returned and was on the field for the fourth quarter drive and the overtime session.
I thought both of USC's Matts -- Barkley and Kalil -- helped their causes. Quarterback Matt Barkley (No. 10) pretty much went throw-for-throw with Luck and showed his quick release, which was one reason why Stanford's vaunted pass rush wasn't able to register a sack. Another reason was the left tackle, Matt Kalil (No. 2) who kept Stanford's pass rushers at bay most of the game.
