No. 1 spot belongs to Bradford on list of top 25 prospects

The 2010 NFL Draft is a little over a month away, and scouts are putting the finishing touches on their draft boards based on information gathered at pro days.

While several of the draft's top prospects still have workouts pending, the top of the board is slowly starting to take shape as teams are narrowing their focus on the elite players at each position.

Though teams separate prospects by position, decision-makers eventually rank top players by grade, regardless of position.

In an attempt to mirror the draft boards across the league, I thought it was a great time to unveil my top 25 prospects in the draft. I'll be updating this list every week from now until the draft.
