The ACC has two players ranked among the top 10 in Todd McShay's latest list of the 32 best NFL prospects heading into the weekend workouts of the NFL combine.
North Carolina defensive end Quinton Coples dropped from No. 5 to No. 6 this week, and Boston College linebacker Luke Kuechly jumped from No. 10 to No. 9. Coples is listed as the top defensive lineman, and Kuechly the best linebacker available. The only other ACC players listed are Clemson defensive end Andre Branch at No. 29 and defensive tackle Brandon Thompson at No. 31.
Once again, the ACC is living up to its reputation as a defensive conference, and this year the linemen are the highlight.
