Teams w/ Multiple Prospects @ Same Position
 
It seems like this has been happening more frequently in recent years, but 2012 has a lot of teams that are loaded at certain spots. I am sure I am missing some, but off the top of my head you have...

Draft eligible:

Texas A&M OT's - Joeckel, Matthews
LSU DE's - Mingo, Montgomery
Alabama OL - Warmack, Fluker, Jones
UGA LB's - Jones, Ogletree
WVU WR's - Austin, Bailey
Tenn WR's - Hunter, Patterson (and another guy dismissed with top 10 talent)
FSU DE's - Werner, Carradine (hurt), Jenkins (hurt)
Stanford TE's: Ertz, Toilolo
OSU DL: Hankins, Simon
Texas DE's: Okafor, Jeffcoat (hurt)
Florida DL: Hunter, Easley, Floyd
BYU DE's: Ansah, Van Noy

Then of course there are these guys who aren't all draft eligible

USC WR's: Woods, Lee
Clemson WR's: Watkins, Hopkins
Oregon RB's: Barner, Thomas
ND DL: Nix, Tuitt

On the surface it looks pretty cool, but it makes you wonder in a few of these cases if this is something to be wary of. Is one player feeding off another? Are they both overrated? Not saying it is the case, but it seems as if there are a lot of "dynamic duos" in college football this year. I'm sure that I am missing a few too. Could be a non-issue, but I think it is actually more than just a coincidence. There are a lot of situations like that this year.

I like Tennessee's WRs as well.

Stanford has some good LBs too. Not sure which ones are eligible.

You have Chase Thomas, Shane Skov and Trent Murphy all eligible. Murphy i believe is a rs junior so not sure if he'd come out. Murphy seems to me as the potential star at the next level of that group. Looks like your prototypical OLB in a 3-4 defense. He'll turn some heads at the combine when he comes out.

Forgot about Stanford, Tarpley is monster too. All of those guys could be playing on Sundays.

Man. If only Da'Rick could have passed a weed test.

UGA at saftey as Rambo, Shaun Williams and at CB Sanders Commings and Brandon Smith they will also have 2 DT if Kwame Geathers decides to go pro

BYU's Van Noy is a LB.

Just lump it in with pass rushers. As him and Ansah both are, Ansah plays out of a standup quite a bit too.

I was actually thinking about posting the exact same thing, interesting to see if its teams developing guys, or if its just a coincidence...

Dont forget the non eligible Devin Taylor (though he's not that good, still an NFL prospect) and Clowney (who clearly wears the pants in this relationship...lol).

Penn State's Gerald Hodges and Mike Mauti (though obviously Mauti's draft stock took a major hit w/his knee injury)
