Michigan edge rusher Aidan Hutchinson is the new No. 1 on ESPN NFL Draft analyst Mel Kiper’s “Big Board” leading a top five that includes four defensive players.

Hutchinson previously was No. 5 on Kiper’s top-25 draft-eligible players and moved to the top spot this week. Hutchinson is a Heisman Trophy finalist and set Michigan’s single-season sack record with 14 — he had two three-sack games in the final month, at Penn State and in the regular-season finale against Ohio State.

Also, Michigan’s David Ojabo, who has 11 sacks this season, has moved up one spot to No. 9.
