Let there be no mistake: There will be way too much NFL Draft overanalysis, and the plan here is to limit the mock draft talk as much as possible.
But player rankings by position? That’s sort of interesting.
Which leads to the National Football Post’s rankings from earlier today.
Obviously, there is still plenty of time before the draft. But it is one way to whet the appetite of people who will watch hours upon hours of draft coverage. So here’s where players from local and regional schools land at each position:
9. Rashad Jennings, Liberty
6. Eric Kettani, Navy
5. Darrius Heyward-Bey, Maryland
1. Eugene Monroe, Virginia
10. Jaimie Thomas, Maryland
4-3 DEFENSIVE ENDS
10. Lawrence Sidbury Jr., Richmond
3-4 DEFENSIVE ENDS
9. Jeremy Navarre, Maryland
9. Chris Baker, Hampton
3-4 OUTSIDE LINEBACKERS
5. Clint Sintim, Virginia
7. Orion Martin, Virginia Tech
9. Moise Fokou, Maryland
10. Victor “Macho” Harris, Virginia Tech
