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)

"to be honest with you, if you just graded it out, we won in every phase of the game,” Swinney said. “We lost on the scoreboard."
