Another NFL Draft is officially behind us with the conclusion of the 2013 edition. This year threw a little bit of a curve ball at the franchises, fans and players, as it lacked the big time names so many drafts have been accustomed to.

At the end of the day, no one (not even the “experts”) really had any kind of clue as to where each player was going to be selected. It led for some very big surprises, especially in the first round.

But where did those surprises come from? Were they five star recruits coming out of high school? Did your team draft from the almighty SEC, or did they look for some MACtion?

Here is a breakdown of the entire draft, including: High school recruiting rankings, NCAA conference affiliation and prospect’s home state.
