Benson named #1 NFL Prospect
Wow. Mel Kiper just released his list of Top 25 prospects for the NFL and guess who’s atop the list? None other than Cedric Benson. (I saw his article just minutes after my last post about Benson’s Heisman chances being dashed.) Kiper recently switched Benson to the top ranked running back of this year’s draft class, but this was his first release of his rankings of overall prospects and Benson is at the top. Not far behind is linebacker Derrick Johnson at #7. Another year, another pair of Longhorns taken in the top 10 of the draft. Mack Brown does an amazing job recruiting the top talent. Here’s hoping he learns how to use it to win a big game.
