Munford is a no-brainer. He could have been a Day 1 or Day 2 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, but opted instead to return to Ohio State for another season.
In 2020, Munford was a First Team All-Big Ten selection by both the coaches and the media. He earned Second Team All-Big Ten honors in 2019 and has started 26 consecutive games for the Buckeyes.
Despite being a true freshman, Skoronski emerged as one of Northwestern’s best players last season. He was named Second Team All-Big Ten for his effort, and helped lead the Wildcats to Big Ten West title.
Skoronski is currently on track to be a top pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. According to 247Sports Composite rankings, Skoronski was the No. 113 overall player in the class of 2020.
