Kiper critiques McShay's latest top five (1:01)

Mel Kiper Jr. shares his thoughts on Todd McShay's mock draft 2.0 with specific thoughts on Deshaun Watson going second to the 49ers and Corey Davis going fifth to the Titans. (1:01)

Time for another Big Board, my last before the NFL combine at the end of the month. The big changes include a quarterback moving into the top 10, a defender moving into the top 20 after standing out at the Senior Bowl and a fast-rising tight end making his debut.

Check out Mock Draft 1.0 here, and come back for version 2.0 next week. Here we go:

One asterisk denotes a junior, and two asterisks denote a redshirt sophomore for the 2016 season.

1. *Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M

Garrett had a frustrating season, hampered by a high ankle sprain he suffered in late September, and his 8.5 sacks were down from his freshman total of 11.5 and sophomore total of 12.5. The injury took away some of the explosiveness that makes him such a promising talent, but when he's on, he's a brilliant, natural pass-rusher. The injury shouldn't affect Garrett's draft status. At 6-foot-5, 265 pounds, he has the length, strength and ability to bend the edge. I think he's a top-five lock, and I expect him to impress at the NFL combine.
