ACC's lunchtime links

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

Because of the draft and spring games, there were too many links to get to in one day on Monday, so consider this the second chapter:

  • Tony Barnhart breaks down the NFL draft in relation to the ACC and SEC.

  • What's the criticism of Georgia Tech's Michael Johnson? That he "doesn't play hard all the time."

  • It's exactly the opposite for Wake Forest's Aaron Curry, who wanted to "punish every team in the ACC for not even coming to say 'hi'" when he was recruited -- or, more accurately, wasn't recruited.

  • Curry is part of a recruiting class that was probably the best in school history. Or, as Dennis Dodd points out, the best in "a lot of schools' history." Imagine that. Lil' ole' Wake Forest had more players drafted than Auburn, Florida State, Miami, Michigan, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Tennessee and Florida.

  • Former Maryland corner Kevin Barnes, who attended Old Mill High School in Maryland, is staying in the area yet again to continue his career. He was caught off-guard on Sunday by a phone call from Daniel Snyder, owner of the Washington Redskins.

  • Also coming to the area will be Florida State's Lou Groza Award winner, Graham Gano, who was signed as a free agent by the Baltimore Ravens.

  • Clemson's players waited longer than usual to hear their names called.
