Year after year, hundreds of prospects get drafted into the NFL and they share many traits with those already in the league. It’s common to compare a college football player to an NFL player; it helps those who don’t follow the college game to connect with a player during the draft process.
So, with that in mind, I decided to position 10 draft-eligible prospects for the 2012 NFL draft, who reflect a top-10 pick (in sequential order) from the 2011 draft. By no means is this an abbreviated mock draft and a predicted order of where I foresee the draft-eligible prospects for ’12 to be selected. That article will come at a later time.
For now, these are the prospects that mirror those who were drafted in the top 10 in April.
