By  | 

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WDBJ7) -- Virginia defensive back Juan Thornhill will likely be the first UVA player taken in the NFL Draft. The Altavista graduate was projected as a mid-second-round pick, but he could sneak into the first round, according to some draft experts.

Thornhill's speed and athletic ability allowed him to play both cornerback and safety in college, and his performance in the NFL Scouting Combine turned heads.
