If the early forecasts are any indication, Notre Dame could have its most successful NFL draft in two decades.
Mel Kiper Jr. released his initial mock draft this week, and three Irish players make the first round.
Notre Dame has not had three players drafted in the first round since 1994, when Bryant Young (No. 7, San Francisco 49ers), Aaron Taylor (No. 16, Green Bay Packers) and Jeff Burris (No. 27, Buffalo Bills) all were taken that early.
