Don’t ya just love the Big 10?
Some of the best college football comes from within the Big 10 and it just so happens that some of the best NFL players also emerge from the storied conference.
But whether you’re a fan of the classic Ann Arbor rivalry between Michigan and Ohio State, or just have an affinity towards the classic Penn State-Iowa match-up, the real excitement comes in April when we get to see where these kids will wind up in the NFL.
The NFL is no stranger to the Big 10, of course. Current players such as Drew Brees, Charles Woodson and Tom Brady are just a small sample of the 100-plus Big 10 players who have come along and made football what it is today.
So, with that said, I thought we would take a look at the 2011 Top 10 Prospects from the Big Ten. We’ll take a snap shot look at each player mentioned and who he could wind up playing for in 2011.
One caveat to add here: I will simply choose one player from each school who is either ranked the best player out of that institution, or whom I feel is the best offered (otherwise there would only be five or six schools mentioned here and I want to be fair, ya know.)
So here we go!
