    So who was the most valuable player selected in the draft?

    Well, Most Valuable can be defined in a number of ways, but by my calculation is was Alabama wide receiver Julio Jones.

    Why? Let's count'em up. Cleveland traded away their right to slot No. 6 to Atlanta. What did Atlanta give up in return?

    .....the 1st, 2nd and 4th round picks in this draft , pluuuuuuuuuuuuuuus their 1st and 4th round picks in the 2012 draft.

    Yes sirree, Julio Jones was unquestionably the most valuable player in the draft.

    None of those eight schools played in a BCS bowl, and Clemson and Georgia finished with losing records.

    Oregon, which lost in the national championship game, had one player drafted. Auburn, which won the national title, had four. That means the BCS title game had five draftees -- the fewest of any of the BCS bowls.

    Micheal Jasper is the first player drafted from Bethel (Tenn.), an NAIA school located in McKenzie, Tenn., a town of about 5,300 in northwest Tennessee. Jasper, from the Nashville suburb of Mt. Juliet, was drafted as a defensive tackle by Buffalo after playing guard at 440 pounds last fall.

    There were 56 underclassmen -- a record high -- who declared for the draft. A lot of them are having second thoughts right about now. Thirteen weren't drafted at all.....................and are now ineligible for future college ball

    Auburn WR Darvin Adams, Southern Miss WR DeAndre Brown, Wisconsin RB John Clay, Georgia Tech OT Nick Claytor, Virginia Tech RB Darren Evans, South Carolina WR Tori Gurley, Florida FS Will Hill, Pitt FB Henry Hynoski, Stanford LB Thomas Keiser, Oregon DB Javes Lewis, Virginia DE Zane Parr, Utah DT Sealver Siliga and Georgia Tech S Jerrard Tarrant
    And half of them didn't even play last season :/

    ACC with the second most draft picks. Lots of talent in that conference.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.
