Manning still No. 1, shuffling elsewhere
Changes abound in Mel Kiper's latest first-round projection, and trades could shuffle it even more in the coming weeks.
More projections from Kiper: Second round | Third | Fourth Things have changed up and down my first-round projection, from the top five all the way to No. 32. Some teams still appear to be focused on a particular position or player, but most of the picks have shifted slightly since my last mock draft. Wide receivers fill two of the first three slots as well as the final three first-round positions, while there are 18 underclassmen among my projections for the first 32 picks.
And let's not forget that trades could significantly alter the look of the first round. Trade activity will no doubt change the board before April 24, and it will be interesting to see how team needs could affect when certain players come off the board. (underclassmen denoted with an asterisk*)
