And now, toward the 2012 draft
This is a list of the top five players, per position, who are returning to school in '11
We know who's in and who's out for the 2011 NFL draft -- you can find those guys listed here, by position -- so this is a different look: These are guys returning to school next fall. The big name here is obviously Andrew Luck, but some observers also expected others to jump to the NFL -- Janoris Jenkins, Justin Blackmon, Dan Herron, etc. They are all listed here.
This list won't change a ton between now and the 2011 draft -- after all, these guys won't be at the combine, working out for teams and doing all the things 2011 draftees will be doing -- but you can think of it as a very early (very early) road map to the 2012 NFL draft.
