On Monday, analyst Bucky Brooks updated his first-round mock draft, and there are some big shakeups following the NFL Combine and several pro days. Notably, he has Penn State RB Saquon Barkley down at No. 4, instead of at No. 1 or No. 2.

As you can see below, he has four former Big Ten players included on his list — two from Ohio State, one from Penn State and one from Iowa. Here are the entire first-round projections, but the four B1G players included are:

  • No. 4 — Saquon Barkley, RB, Penn State — Cleveland Browns
  • No. 5 — Denzel Ward, DB, Ohio State — Denver Broncos
  • No. 20 — James Daniels, C, Iowa — Detroit Lions
  • No. 24 — Sam Hubbard, DE, Ohio State — Carolina Panthers

These are sure to change again in the coming month, but for now, these four players are in good shape.
