ACC players holding steady on draft boards
By Matt Fortuna
North Carolina's Quinton Coples jumped two spots to No. 7 on Todd McShay's 32-man draft board this week, highlighting the movement among ACC players.
Luke Kuechly is right behind Coples at No. 8 on McShay's board, and the Boston College linebacker is the top ACC player on Mel Kiper's 25-man Big Board, holding steady at No. 7 . Coples dropped one spot to No. 9 on Kiper's board.
Clemson's Andre Branch remains at No. 20 on McShay's board.
McShay and Scouts Inc. also reveal their draft board, in which each prospect is grouped with his position and assigned to the round corresponding with his draft grade.
It's a pretty neat look at where each prospect could fall in the draft, with Kuechly, Coples and Branch all receiving first-round grades.
