Ah the NFL Draft, teams picking new players, towns celebrating their new NFL stars, and schools trotting our the picks from their program to show other recruits that they too, can get to the league from their respective school. But who are the 2021 and 2022 guys in Va you should watch for over the next few years?

Number one for me was a no-brainer, Rice is the number one prospect in the state in his class and honestly is one of the best to come along in a while. Rice is big, mean, physical, all the things you want your star lineman to be and he has had his choice of schools over his recruiting process. We now have a better idea of where Rice will go as he recently cut his list down to the five schools he will be visiting. UVA, Ohio State, UNC, Alabama, and Notre Dame are the five Rice is going to choose from and any one of them is a good choice.

It would not surprise me to see Rice being a top ten pick one day.
