2012 NFL Draft: Three Local Players Listed In Possible Top-100 Picks In Deepest Positions, Per NFP

According to the the National Football Post's Wes Bunting, the five deepest positions in this year's NFL draft are wide receiver, guard, quarterback, cornerback and running back. Bunting believes that these five positions have the most players that could be selected in the top-100 picks and there are two Georgia Bulldogs on the list at three different positions: guard Cordy Glenn and cornerback Brandon Boykin, plus Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets wide receiver Stephen Hill.

On Glenn, Bunting lists him as this year's draft class' second best guard after Stanford's David DeCastro.

From top to bottom this might be the most impressive offensive guard class I've seen since I've been doing this. There is a pair of potential first round picks in Stanford's David DeCastro and Georgia's Cordy Glenn, with a number of potential second/third round options who have the ability to come in and play at a high level early in their NFL career.

Bunting lists Hill as the 2012 draft class' 10th-best receiver behind guys like Justin Blackmon, Kendall Wright, Michael Floyd, Mohamed Sanu and others.

As for the cornerbacks, Georgia's Brandon Boykin is listed as the fourth best corner in the very deep corner class. He's listed behind LSU's Morris Claiborne, Alabama's Dre Kirkpatrick and North Alabama's Janoris Jenkins.
