West Virginia Football: Ranking the Mountaineers' Top 10 NFL Prospects
Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE
QB Geno Smith is West Virginia's top pro prospect, but he's not the only Mountaineer with an NFL future

West Virginia’s football program isn’t particularly known for producing a ton of NFL prospects.

The Mountaineers had three players selected in this year’s NFL draft, including first-round pick Bruce Irvin. However, since 2006, the school has had just 15 players drafted by an NFL team.

By comparison, during that same time frame, USC had 56 players drafted, LSU had 42 players drafted, Ohio State had 41 players drafted, Oklahoma had 36 players drafted and Texas had 35 players drafted.

Obviously, West Virginia has never been in the same class as some of college football’s top pro-producing powerhouses. However, this year’s team does feature a few players who definitely have a future playing on Sundays.

QB Geno Smith, who has the potential to be a first-round pick in the 2013 NFL draft, is clearly the team’s top pro prospect, but he’s not the only Mountaineer that scouts will be paying close attention to this fall.

Here’s a look at West Virginia’s 10 best NFL prospects.
