The NFL Draft begins on Thursday night, and a brand new crop of college players will be entering the NFL ranks.

That includes numerous former ACC stars, several of whom are expected to be picked in the first round on Thursday night. NC State’s Ikem Ekwonu and Florida State’s Jermaine Johnson are just a couple ACC prospects who are potential top-10 selections.

With that in mind, let’s take a look back at the last time each ACC team produced a top-10 pick in the NFL Draft:

Boston College: LB Luke Kuechly | 2012 | No. 9 overall

The Carolina Panthers got an absolute steal when they picked Kuechly at No. 9 overall in 2012. Although his career was cut short by head injuries, he certainly made an impact when he was on the field.

He was a 7-time pro bowler, a 5-time All-pro linebacker and made the NFL’s 2010’s Hall-of-Fame team. He’s likely to be a first-ballot Hall-of-Famer when he’s eligible for induction in 2024.

Clemson: QB Trevor Lawrence | 2021 | No. 1 overall

The story is still being written for Lawrence, who went No. 1 overall in last year’s draft. His first season was marred by dysfunction during the short-lived Urban Meyer era, but he’s still one of the most promising quarterback prospects in the NFL.

Duke: QB Daniel Jones | 2019 | No. 6 overall

The Giants took Daniel Jones at No. 6 in what was perceived to be a weak 2019 quarterback class. Jones could still turn it around, but so far he hasn’t been able to overcome the Giants’ organizational struggles. He has 45 touchdowns and 29 interceptions in his first 3 seasons.

Florida State: DB Jalen Ramsey | 2016 | No. 5 overall

This was a home run pick by the Jacksonville Jaguars. Ramsey peaked as one of the best defensive backs in the league and just won the Super Bowl with the Rams. He’s a 5-time Pro Bowler and a 3-time All-Pro safety after just 6 seasons.

Georgia Tech: WR Calvin Johnson | 2007 | No. 2 overall

Calvin Johnson is one of the best picks on this entire list and perhaps the best draft pick in Detroit Lions franchise history. Johnson was the most dominant force in the NFL during his career and has already been inducted into the Hall-of-Fame. He retired after his age-30 season, but did so with over 11,000 yards and 83 touchdowns already on his résumé.

Louisville: DT Amobi Okoye | 2007 | No. 10 overall

Okoye is one of the most unique stories in NFL history. He entered the draft at just 19 years old and is still the youngest player to ever be drafted in the first round. He started 58 games for the Texans across 4 seasons, but then was released. He never re-established himself as an NFL regular and was out of the league by 2012.

Miami: OT Ereck Flowers | 2015 | No. 9 overall

Flowers didn’t become a dominant left tackle for the New York Giants, but he’s far from being a bust. He’s started 101 games in his career, including 16 contests for the Washington Football Team in 2021.

NC State: LB Bradley Chubb | 2018 | No. 5 overall

Chubb wasn’t expected to fall all the way to No. 5 in the 2018 draft, but Denver was happy to pick him up when he did. The former Wolfpack star was the top defensive player in this class and has been a problem for opposing offenses when healthy. He has 20.5 sacks in 4 seasons for the Broncos. However, he’s missed 25 games in that span due to injuries.

North Carolina: QB Mitchell Trubisky | 2017 | No. 2 overall

The Bears probably want this one back. Trubisky is one of the most infamous selections in NFL history. Chicago traded up to get him at No. 2 overall and didn’t work out in the Windy City. To make matters worse, quarterbacks like Deshaun Watson and Patrick Mahomes were available later in the first round. He’s still in the NFL though and may start games in 2022 for the Steelers.

Pittsburgh: WR Larry Fitzgerald | 2004 | No. 3 overall

Larry Fitzgerald is another sure-fire Hall-of-Famer on this list. Over the course of his career, Fitzgerald was one of the most consistent and dependable receivers in the entire league. He finished with 17,492 yards and 121 touchdowns. He made 11 Pro Bowls and was named to the NFL’s All 2010’s team. He’ll be a first-ballot Hall-of-Famer in 2025

Syracuse: QB Donovan McNabb | 1999 | No. 2 overall

For Syracuse’s last top-10 pick, you have to go all the way back to 1999. Donovan McNabb, of course, was one of the faces of the NFL during his prime with the Philadelphia Eagles. He and Andy Reid led the franchise to 4 straight NFC Championship Games and a Super Bowl appearance in 2005.

Virginia Tech: DB De’Angelo Hall | 2004 | No. 8 overall

It’s been awhile since Virginia Tech had a top-10 pick — Kyle Fuller was close a few years ago — but De’Angelo Hall was certainly a good one. The talented defensive back turned into a 3-time Pro Bowler and finished his career with 43 interceptions, 141 pass deflections and 10 touchdowns.

Virginia: OL Eugene Monroe | 2009 | No. 8 overall

Monroe started 98 games in his career, but never made a Pro Bowl roster or an All-Pro team. He was forced to retire at the age of 29 due to head injuries. Monroe announced his retirement and opened up about his injuries in a piece for the Player’s Tribune.  He played 7 seasons in the NFL.

Wake Forest: LB Aaron Curry | 2009 | No. 4 overall

Simply put, Aaron Curry didn’t make it in the NFL. He was out of the league after just 4 seasons. He showed promising signs early on, with 5.5 sacks and 4 forced fumbles through his first 2 years. But the production fell off after that, and he never made it back into the league. He’s now on the Seattle Seahawks’ coaching staff.
