Kiper Jr.'s top 5 prospects by position

March, 1, 2012
Now that the NFL combine is over, draft guru Mel Kiper Jr. has released his latest top five NFL draft prospects by position Insider.

Former ACC running backs David Wilson and Lamar Miller checked in at Nos. 3 and 4, respectively. Georgia Tech's Stephen Hill cracked the list of receivers at No. 4, Clemson's Dwayne Allen was listed as the No. 3 tight end, and UNC's Quinton Coples remains the No. 1 prospect at defensive end, followed by No. 3 Andre Branch. BC's Luke Kuechly is the top inside linebacker, and NC State's Terrell Manning is the No. 3 outside linebacker. Florida State punter Shawn Powell (No. 3) was the only other ACC player listed, but the ACC had plenty of winners at this year's combine, according to Kiper:
  • Wilson, RB, Virginia Tech
  • Hill, WR, Georgia Tech
  • Tommy Streeter, WR, Miami
  • Kuechly, LB, Boston College

Kiper called former Clemson tight end Dwayne Allen a question mark with more of a second-round grade now, but said that could change with a good pro day.
