In 2012, the Iowa football team slumped to a 4-8 record – their worst since 2000, when Head Coach Kirk Ferentz was in his second season on the job. The Hawkeyes bounced back with eight wins last year, and sent three players on to the NFL, including Browns third round pick Chris Kirksey. Among those returning this season is star offensive tackle Brandon Scherff, a player some scouts regard as the top senior prospect in college football. Here’s a look at Scherff and some of the other, draft-eligible Hawkeyes. Read the rest of this entry »

Last season, Head Coach Art Briles led Baylor to a school-record 11 wins and its first conference title since 1980. The Bears went on to lose to Central Florida in the Fiesta Bowl, but they return Heisman Trophy candidate Bryce Petty and a number of other key offensive players, Here’s a look at Petty and some of the other draft-eligible players suiting up for Baylor this fall.

In the days before training camp opens on Saturday, the Browns have already started rearranging the roster, waiving receivers Conner Vernon and Kenny Shaw, defensive back Royce Adams, running back Jourdan Brooks, and linebacker Brandon Magee,and adding linebackers Edgar Jones and Jamaal Westerman, and offensive linemen Nick McDonald and Abasi Salimu. Players added this late in the game generally have a tough time sticking, but both Jones and Westerman have played for Cleveland Head Coach Mike Pettine, and the team thought enough of McDonald to pick him up despite the fact that he isexpected to miss four to six weeks with a broken wrist. So I’m telling you there’s a chance. The Browns even have a couple of spots open in case they want to sign anyone else. Or maybe they’re just trying to get a head start on the next cut down date. Considering that bit of uncertainty, it going to be nearly impossible to correctly predict the final, 53-man roster, but that didn’t stop me from trying again. And like last time, my 53-man roster includes 54 names, because of the looming Josh Gordon suspension. Read the rest of this entry »

After a bumpy 2012 season, Michigan State rebounded to finish with a school-record 13 wins last year. The Spartans rode the nation’s third ranked scoring
defense (fourth in yards allowed) to an easy win over Michigan in the regular season, and to a win over Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship Game. The
latter victory earned Michigan State its first Rose Bowl berth since 1987, where the team finished the season by knocking off Stanford 24-20. The 2014
Spartans return their quarterback, leading running back, second-leading receiver, and their top pass rusher, setting the team up nicely for another Big Ten
title run. Here’s a look at Michigan State’s top, draft-eligible players heading into the season. (Asterisks denote underclassmen) Read the rest of this entry »

In their first season under Head Coach Mark Helfrich, the Oregon Ducks won their first eight games while averaging 56 points per contest, and seemed to be on their way to a berth in the BCS Championship Game. But with quarterback Marcus Mariota slowed by a knee injury, the Ducks fell to Stanford in a Thursday night game, putting their title hopes on life support. Those dreams were completely killed two weeks later when Oregon was blown out on the road at Arizona, and the Ducks wound up playing for pride in the Alamo Bowl. Despite being considered a first round prospect by many analysts, Mariota opted to return for his redshirt junior season, and with his knee fully healed, he’ll look to make one last run at collegiate glory. Here’s a look at Mariota and
some of the other draft-eligible Ducks on the roster. (Asterisks denote underclassmen) Read the rest of this entry »

In 2012, on the strength of its defense, Notre Dame finished the regular season undefeated and earned a berth in the National Championship game against
Alabama. Following a humiliating defeat at the hands of the Crimson Tide, the Fighting Irish lost two star players, Manti Te’o and Tyler Eifert, to the
NFL. Then in May of 2013, quarterback Everett Golson was banished from the program for an academic violation. Through two weeks of the 2013 season, Notre Dame had already suffered its first loss, and the team went on to drop three more games during the regular season. After a 9-4 season, Brian Kelly’s team had gone from title contenders to Pinstripe Bowl winners in less than a year’s time. The head coach gets his quarterback back for 2014, and the two will team with a new cast to try to recapture the magic of two years ago. Here’s a look at Golson, and some of the other draft-eligible players who will suit up for the Irish this fall. (Asterisks denote underclassmen) Read the rest of this entry »
