A Look at the All-World Class of 2002

More reason to toss out those recruiting rankings. Bruce Feldman of ESPN takes a look at the careers of players who appeared in the 2002 U.S. Army All-American Game. Back then, these guys were deemed all-world. Some of the players have another season of college eligibility, but as you will see, only seven were first-day selections in the NFL draft, including Denver's pick of last year, Maurice Clarett, pictured with this post. And Scout rankings are put to the test with a look at how the NFL's first-round selections were graded coming out of high school. Thanks to reader Kevin for the links!
