Path to the Draft: ACC Week

Posted by Taylor Price on March 21, 2011 – 8:24 AM

Our third week of previewing potential NFL Draft prospects shifts its focus to the Atlantic Coast Conference. The always competitive ACC regularly produces top-notch pro talent and this year’s crop is one of its best in years.

Not counting North Carolina’s large offering of draft hopefuls, the conference is littered with talent on both sides of the ball.

The Virginia Tech Hokies overcame an 0-2 start in non-conference play to win all eight of their ACC matchups and the ACC Championship game over the Florida State Seminoles.

The Hokies lost to a Jim Harbaugh-coached Stanford team in the Orange Bowl, but enjoyed a great season despite a slow start. But perhaps no team was talked about more than the Tar Heels, an 8-5 team that had to play without the services of several suspended players.

We’ll have more on that promising group later in the week, but first, enjoy a draft spotlight on Boston College’s top offensive line talent, tackle Anthony Castanzo.

Which players from the ACC would you like to see in a 49ers uniform? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.

    i would like to see alex smith come back, i do not think he got afair shake with a new offensive coordinator every year . and our own fans booing him i believe true fans support our players and he was not a 1rst round pick for no reason.he needs to have some continuity and some support and i think he will be just fine i still have faith in him but he probably wont come back due to the booing in his own home stadium!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Christian Ponder would do great in that offense.! Especially with Coach Harbaugh developing his QB skills.

    Christian Ponder. Dont waste a 1st round pick on a qb when you can grab good talent in the second. That is if he doesnt go in the 1st.

    Cam Newton is our best choice for QB if we could get him

    I would personnally like to see the 9ers get a chance on Gabbert, but he will be gone before the 7th pick. He is the most NFL ready. I would bring McNabb or maybe Palmer in for a year. Cam will be a work in progress right off the bat…he will need someone to work with him.

    Alex Smith must move on. I never saw him as a leader much less a qb, please fans get it through ypour head, if harbaugh is to succeed he must bring in his own players and bring a new attitude, which obviously starts at QB. Alex you will be a great backup somewhere but please not here.!!

    Id like to see the 2 Patricks in the backfield. Alex Smith didnt get a fair hand dealt too him, but we can names dozens of others. It is the business side of the league…

    This person is exactly correct poor kid sticks around and last year the owners were like will give you some 1990 continuity and bring back a coordinator that had article written about him in 1990 about being put out to the pasture 20 years later Dingle-berry oops Singletry fired Mike Martz ya the same one that won a super bowl and develops QB but Dinglebery was scared to have a real coach over his shoulder cause after 0-5 see ya Singletar

    I need my Niners either to trade up ( swap 1sr round picks with Denver and our 3rd round pick)Securing our pick of Mr Peterson or Trade down with New England ( Swaping #7 with there # 17 and # 33) Getting Mad Marvan Austin, Smith or Wilkerson or Brandon Harris and then securing a QB with # 33!

    We either go get Peterson ( Swap our 7th and our 3rd rounder for there 2nd Pick! Or we drop back trading our 7th to N.E. for there #17 and there #33. We could pick up JJ Watt or Marvin Austin with 17 and then secure our QB with the first pick of the 2nd round. Our QB wont be there at pick #45. Other teams will see to that! Good Luck to All !!!

    swap our 7th and our fourth rounder, we need cb,qb,olb in the our first 3 pick cant wait for the fourth

    New England is rumored to want to trade up. If they are willing to sacrifice both of their number one picks for our number one then I say trade, because there is not a whole lot of difference in talent from the top picks at OLB, CB and QB in the first round.
