National Signing Day: How No. 1 overall recruits since 2000 have fared in NFL

High school recruits across the country will sign with their colleges of choice on Wednesday, National Signing Day, but the nation's No. 1 recruit is already spoken for. QB Trevor Lawrence signed with Clemson in the December early signing period and is already enrolled at CU. No. 1-ranked recruits have typically been outstanding college players, although their pro careers have been far less consistent. Here is a look at the No. 1 overall recruits, per 247sports.com, of this century and how they fared in the NFL.

NOTE: This list goes through 2014, as the No. 1 overall recruits since then are still college players, aside from the No. 1 recruit from 2015 -- Georgia DT Trenton Thompson -- who is a prospect in this year's draft.
