ESPN Experts Predict Which Big Ten Player In The 2017 Draft Will Have The Best NFL Career

Here's who will have the best NFL career.

The Big Ten has plenty of talent that will be drafted into the NFL this year. Michigan alone sent 14 players to the NFL Combine in February, meanwhile Ohio State could have three defensive backs taken in the first round.

But with all of the talent from the Big Ten this year, who will have the best career?

Four ESPN analysts gave their picks for who will have the best NFL career.

  • Brian Bennett: Ohio State S Malik Hooker
  • Dan Murphy: Penn State WR Chris Godwin
  • Jesse Temple: Wisconsin OL Ryan Ramczyk
  • Austin Ward: Ohio State C Pat Elflein

It's interesting to note that all four experts stayed away from Marshon Lattimore, who is projected to be the Big Ten's first pick in the NFL Draft. Of course, Malik Hooker isn't far behind, and Ryan Ramczyk is also expected to be drafted in the first round.

Penn State's Chris Godwin is not expected to be a first round pick, but was one of the best receivers in the Big Ten last season. Godwin was instrumental to the Nittany Lions successful 2016 campaign and nearly won the Rose Bowl for them.

Only time will tell how these elite prospects progress in NFL.
