I would be happy the Bucs getting either Millner or Rhodes. They need a Corner in a BAD way
LOL... Dane Brugler thinks that Barkevious Mingo is going to be the first LB taken in the draft???? What a tool!
For recruiting reference...
Conference region guys that CBS lists as projected 1st rounders on either list...

Nebraska is two years removed from being B12 territory.
ACC (FSU 2) Bjoern Werner and Xavier Rhodes
I count that state as Big 12 region, however.
Texas is not going to be counted in the Southeast states either.
Just my thoughts.

They must have missed CJ's announcement yesterday.
Brugler has Joeckel listed twice
You can put it in with the ACC if you want. It doesn't make it accurate. The only FBS school in the State of Nebraska moved to the B10 two years ago.
It was from Dec. 20...should have posted the date. My bad.
And kids from that state will go to Big 12 schools as much as Big 10 schools (unless Neb signs a big amount in a specific year).
It can go either way, kind of like Iowa.
And it's an opinion, which makes mine just as accurate as yours.
State of Iowa since 2011 class (2013 class not finished)...
Iowa State and Big 12 schools: 14
Iowa and Big 10 schools: 8
Pac-12 schools: 2
State of Nebraska since 2011 class...
Nebraska and Big 10 schools: 8 (Nebraska has signed 6 of those with Iowa signing 2)
Big 12 schools: 2
BCS conference: LSU (kid that moved from Texas prior to this season).
The Browns are not taking an OT with their top pick. If Jarvis Jones is on the board they'll be rushing to Goodell so fast he will think their is a bounty on him.
If I'm reading this correctly, it further proves my point because most of the players from the State of Nebraska appear to have ended up in the B10. But it also highlights why it is misleading to assign entire states to conferences. Take Florida. You have classified Florida as SEC territory when two of the major FBS schools (Miami and FSU) are in the ACC vs one (UF) in the SEC. It's arbitrary. You yourself pointed out the problem with the State of Texas now that A&M is in the SEC. It might be useful and/or interesting to track draft picks by state, but when you then turn around and assign entire states to specific conferences the numbers become misleading. If you want to track draft picks by conference, you can easily (and more accurately) do that directly.
So you are saying more sec than all others combined? Interesting.
Almost more Bama than entire Pac12... 5 v 4
But more Bama than every other conference?

I'm not seeing Buffalo taking a DT. Yeah, it's good to have depth at DT, but we've got Kyle Williams, Marcell Dareus, and now Alex Carrington is showing well. Guess I don't see the point in draft a first rounder who is going to be 3rd on the depth chart at best for the next few years. Only reason I can think of is if Kyle Williams is expected to decline (don't see that right now).
Could see Tyler Wilson. Don't know enough about the specific players, but position wise I think they'll look at CB, QB, WR. Buddy Nix loves his early round CB's.
I've seen horrible mock drafts before but Brugler actually pulls a paycheck for that stuff?
Outside of Nebraska, the state splits Big 12 and Big 10 as far as where kids go. I doubt that changes as long as there is a Big 12.
Fun discussion for sure.
