Matt Kalil has a bright future with the Vikings, and Texas A&M's Jake Matthews has what it takes to be the next Kalil.
It’s common to compare a college football player to an NFL player; it helps those who don’t follow the college game to connect with a player during the NFL Draft process. We're still months away from the draft process, but I've decided to position ten draft-eligible prospects for the 2013 draft with the top-10 picks (in sequential order) from the 2012 draft.
The prospects that I paired with the recent draftees possess similar abilities and mirror each other in many ways; a PowerGrid was used to break down their skills. By no means is this an abbreviated 2013 mock draft, or a predicted order of where I foresee the draft-eligible prospects being selected next April; I won’t produce a 2013 mock draft until Week 8 of the NFL regular season.
For now, here are the prospects that reflect those who were drafted in the top 10 this past April.
