Default Where the HS #1's were Drafted in the NFL Draft!!! (10 Years)

I wanted to know how the other #1's (top ranked players) out of high school were drafted in the NFL draft. I had to use Rivals, b/c 247 didn't exist in the early and mid 2000's. So I listed the year the player came out of high school, their college team, their draft position and how many years they were in college. Clowney was THE ONLY #1 player out of high school who was also drafted #1 in the NFL Draft. Also, some of these guys really fell off after they went to PSU, tOSU and Tenn.

2002 Vincent Young, Texas, 1st Rd 3rd Overall (4 years in college)

2003 Ernie Sims, Florida State, 1st Rd 9th Overall (3 years in college)

2004 Adrian Peterson, Oklahoma, 1st Rd 7th Overall (3 years in college)

2005 Derrick Williams, Penn St, 3rd Rd 82nd Overall (4 years in college)

2006 Percy Harvin, Florida, 1st Rd 22nd Overall (3 years in college)

2007 Jimmy Clausen, Notre Dame, 2nd Rd 48th Overall (3 years in college)

2008 Terrelle Pryor, Ohio State, 3rd Rd 2011 Supplemental Draft

2009 Bryce Brown, Tennessee, 7th Rd 229th Overall (3-ish years in college)

2010 Ronald Powell, Florida, 2014 draft, unknown selection at this point, not 1st. Rd (4 years in college)

2011 Jadeveon Clowney, South Carolina, 1st Rd 1st Overall (3 years in college)

That's pretty neat. Thanks for sharing. Hopefully the only one Clowney resembles is AP lol

That's probably true. He'll probably be allowed a couple strikes at his new school, but at his pace, he could get in trouble and kicked off b/w now and November.

I'm not impressed by DGB at all. He's never made an All SEC or All American list, For the guy who was supposed to be the next Randy Moss, he has greatly underwhelmed.

DBG's problem is that he is probably a little too much like Randy Moss, especially off the field. When I look at that list the one that jumps out at me is Percey Harvin.

Harvin tested positive for weed at the Combine and that's a big reason he fell, like the lsu and fsu guys this year.

Yes, he was a lock at 10, and fell to 12....

Also looking at guys like Mettenberger and Jernigan who tested positive this year and fell in projections/have yet to be drafted.

Default Re: Where the HS #1's were Drafted in the NFL Draft!!! (10 Years)

I saw D. Williams play at PSU on several occasions. I never realized he was the #1 recruit out of HS, nor would I have guessed. I mean he has talent, just never thought it would have been best in HS. Cool that you were able to get all this.

For the most part these guys were on the Offensive side of the ball, and that's always a tough translation in to the NFL with so many and with the differences in the game. T. Pryor for example did well at OSU, but the NFL knew it wouldn't translate into a #1 draft choice.

Either way though, to be #1 out of HS shows you have talent, and be #1 in NFL shows you grew your talent as well.

If they could re-draft, pretty sure AP would go #1 overall now. To think the #1 overall that year was... Jamarcus Russell.

When was the last time a high school #1 was also taken #1 for the NFL?

Has it ever happened?

Clowney is the first. Also the qb for LSU didn't technically fail the drug test. His sample came back as a dilute. That means that they couldn't tell if he used drugs because he had been drinking so much water. It's true that he could have been trying to flush stuff out of his system, but it could also just be that he was drinking a lot of water doing rehab with his knee. The NFL will go to his B sample to get results.

The B sample doesn't really matter now as the damage seems to have been done. Mettenberger's past issues aren't helping him now either.

Being the #1 pick doesn't always mean you are the best player. It means you are the best player that fits the needs of the team that has the first pick. Clowney was fortunate that the Texans felt the need for a defensive end. Adrian Peterson wasn't the #1 pick, but he was the first running back to be drafted that year.

In the end I don't think it matters. Clowney was going to go #1 no matter who was picking.
