ACC in Todd McShay's latest mock draft
By Heather Dinich
The NFL draft is coming up in April, and ESPN analyst Todd McShay this week released his latest mock draft . The first player off the board for the ACC is former UNC offensive guard Jonathan Cooper, who McShay lists at No. 10. Cooper is joined by:
No. 22: Menelik Watson, Florida State OT
No. 23: Sylvester Williams, North Carolina, DT
No. 25: Bjoern Werner, Florida State, DE
No. 28: Xavier Rhodes, Florida State, CB
Florida State and North Carolina are the lone ACC schools represented, and all of these guys are going to be extremely difficult to replace.
Mel Kiper's Big Board was also updated this week, and Cooper comes in at No. 8. Werner and Williams also make the cut, but Watson and Rhodes didn't. Kiper also listed his top five draft prospects by position , and you'll find lots of former ACC players listed there.
