Kiper tags each school's top prospect

So what if it's August and this thing we call college football is about to get in the way of players' preparation for next April's NFL Draft?

Draft guru Mel Kiper has released his list of the top prospects from each school in every conference, including the Big 12.

You'll need ESPN Insider to read his comments, but here's his selection for each school.

Baylor: Phil Taylor, DT

Colorado: Nate Solder, LT

Iowa State: Alexander Robinson, RB

Kansas: Chris Harris, CB

Kansas State: Daniel Thomas, RB

Missouri: Blaine Gabbert, QB

Nebraska: Prince Amukamara, CB

Oklahoma: Travis Lewis, LB

Oklahoma State: Kendall Hunter, RB

Texas: Aaron Williams, CB

Texas A&M: Jerrod Johnson, QB

Texas Tech: Detron Lewis, WR

No huge surprises in any of these selections, but I might have guessed Alex Torres over Lewis at Texas Tech. I also imagine the pick between Johnson and linebacker Von Miller at Texas A&M was close.

And as usual in a draft, college production isn't the sole indicator of stock. There will be plenty of guys like Johnson, Williams, Amukamara and Thomas, but plenty of other guys like Taylor with obvious talent and size (6-foot-4, 340 pounds) who haven't turned it into results on the field.

Nebraska's Niles Paul was probably another guy close to making this list, but Williams and Amukamara could be stars very quickly at the next level.
