As bowl season wraps up and January arrives, Big Ten football fans always begin evaluating next season by first looking at who will not come back for next year. That's because they will leave the biggest shoes to fill.

So now is a good time to rank the top NFL prospects from the Big Ten in 2013.

Most of these players will be drafted in April, although there are a couple underclassmen on this list who have yet to declare (or cannot declare yet, in one circumstance).

In compiling this list, the rankings are primarily based on and evaluations available from the draft experts at CBS Sports, FF Toolbox, Walter Football and limited information from ESPN.

Additionally, the rankings are based on the college statistics of these players and my own impressions from watching them over the past few seasons. Unlike in 2012, the top Big Ten prospects are much better than offensive tackle Riley Reiff of Iowa, the first Big Ten player selected with the 23rd pick in the draft.

There is a hot competition for the top spot, yet another battle between Michigan and Ohio State.

Let's see who comes out on top.
