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.
