2013 NFL Draft: Mel Kiper Jr., Todd McShay update big boards

Lane Johnson - Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

ESPN NFL Draft experts Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay have updated their 2013 NFL Draft big boards. How do their rankings differ from those provided by Jesse Bartolis of BBV? Let's look at a few examples.

With the Senior Bowl having come and gone, ESPN draft analysts Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay each released updated 2013 NFL Draft big boards over the past couple of days. How do those boards compare to the Big Blue View Big Board released on Wednesday by our own Jesse Bartolis?

Well, let's take a look at a few of the comparisons. As usual, incidentally, both ESPN big boards are 'Insider' content.

[McShay Big Board | Kiper Big Board]

Let's highlight five players.

Dion Jordan -- Jesse has him at No. 7, and obviously likes the 6-foot-7, 243-pound Oregon defensive end more than McShay (12th) or Kiper (19th).

Kenny Vaccaro -- Jesse has the Texas safety at No. 27, while McShay has Vaccaro all the way up at No. 7 and Kiper places him 17th.

Lane Johnson -- Huge difference of opinion here. Jesse has the Oklahoma offensive tackle way down at No. 52, while McShay (16th) and Kiper (14th) have him in spots where he might be off the board by the time the New York Giants select at No. 19 in the first round.

Ezekial Ansah -- Jesse has the BYU defensive end, often mocked to the Giants, at No. 15. McShay has him at No. 23 and Kiper at No. 24.

Kevin Minter -- Jesse has the LSU inside linebacker, a player I know some of you like for the Giants, at No. 20. McShay has Minter down at No. 30, while Kiper ranks him at 21, more or less agreeing with Jesse.

There are plenty of other differences -- some big, some small. Just a little fodder for you draftniks to keep the discussion going.
