Yesterday, I was just messing around looking at old high school prospect rankings on Yahoo’s Rivals.com, and something stood out to me: There are a boatload of current/former Giants and Eagles that appear on these lists.
It could be that the Giants and Eagles put more stock than other teams in what players accomplished as far back as high school, or it could just be a complete and total coincidence. Anyway, I found it interesting enough to at least list the former top high school recruits I found that entered the NFL in the last 5 years:
|Giants||Position||Year on Rivals Top 100||Overall Rank|
Eagles after the jump…
|Eagles||Position||Year on Rivals Top 100||Overall Rank|
Also, for Eagles fans, he didn’t make the cut because he didn’t enter the NFL in the last 5 years, but check out who the #1 high school recruit was back in 2003.
