ESPN.com NFL draft analyst Steve Muench has an interesting story looking at the top prospects for each of the Big Ten bowl teams. Well, make that eight of the 10 league bowl teams, as Muench surmises that neither Northwestern nor Purdue has a "prospect with a draftable grade."
He lists the top prospects from each team in this order as far as draft grade:
Iowa: OT Riley Reiff
Illinois: DE Whitney Mercilus
Penn State: DT Devon Still
Michigan State: DT Jerel Worthy
Nebraska: CB Alfonzo Dennard
Ohio State: OT Mike Adams
Wisconsin: WR Nick Toon
Michigan: DT Mike Martin
Muench sees Reiff and potentially Dennard and Adams as first-rounders, with Mercilus, Still and Worthy as possible second-rounders. He says Toon could go in the late second round, while Martin is more of a middle-round selection.
He also projects which NFL team would be the best fit for each player. For the complete story, click here.
