2012 NFL Draft: Two Baylor Bears Ranked Top 5 In Position Groups

NFL.com's Mike Mayock recently listed the top five players in every position group heading into the 2012 NFL draft and two of the players he listed are former Baylor Bears. They are quarterback Robert Griffin III and wide receiver Kendall Wright.

RGIII is listed as the second-ranked quarterback on Mayock's list behind Stanford's Andrew Luck and ahead of Texas A&M's Ryan Tannehil, Oklahoma State's Brandon Weeden and Arizona's Nick Foles. Mock drafts have him taken as early as the second overall pick by a team like the Minnesota Vikings or the Cleveland Browns who trade up to take him in the Rams' place.

Wright is listed as the second-ranked wide receiver in the draft behind Oklahoma State's Justin Blackmon and ahead of Notre Dame's Michael Floyd, LSU's Rueben Randle and South Carolina's Alshon Jeffery. SB Nation's latest mock draft has Wright taken at No. 15 by the Eagles.
