The NFL might not officially be back yet (Susan Nelson is trying, you guys!) but the 2011 NFL Draft will take place regardless on Thursday. It wasn't too long ago that no SU players were taken in a draft (2008) but it looks like those days are over.
Anywhere from 2-5 players from Syracuse will hear their names called in the draft. As for who those players will be and where they'll go, who knows? Certainly not people who put together mock drafts. They have worse track records than Bracketologists.
Then again, it can't hurt to check in with them. Let's see which Syracuse Orange come up in certain mock drafts from around the Interweb. (I can't see all of Mel Kiper's mock but if you can and see any SU players on there, let me know)
Ryan Bartholomew - Round 5, Seattle Seahawks
Doug Hogue - Round 5, Chicago Bears
Delone Carter - Round 7, Atlanta Falcons
Delone Carter - Round 5, Kansas City Cheifs

Delone Carter - Round 4, Kansas City Cheifs
