ESPN's Todd McShay has former Clemson defensive end Da'Quan Bowers listed as the top pick in this year's NFL draft, going to the Carolina Panthers in his latest Mock Draft. You have to be an Insider subscriber to see the full content, but I'll let you in on a little secret: McShay has two other ACC players going in the first round: BC's Anthony Castonzo and North Carolina's Robert Quinn. Mel Kiper has Bowers at No. 2 on his latest Big Board behind Auburn's Nick Fairley. He also had Castonzo and Quinn listed.
Bruce Feldman listed his early entry winners and losers, and it was no surprise to find Virginia Tech ranked among his losers. With the departure of Ryan Williams and Darren Evans, the Hokies' backfield will obviously be much thinner this year.
