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. (more…)

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) (more…)

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) (more…)

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) (more…)

The 2013 Oklahoma Sooners shook off being routed by Baylor to win their final three regular season games and earn a berth in the Sugar Bowl to face heavily-favored Alabama. The Sooners trailed 17-14 in the second quarter before rattling off 17 unanswered points to take a 31-17 halftime lead. Oklahoma held on for a 45-31 victory, and set a BCS record by conquering the 17 point spread. Quarterback Trevor Knight, the game’s MVP, returns for his first full season at the controls, and he’ll be joined by 15 other returning starters. Here’s a closer look at Knight and some of the other top, draft-eligible players in the roster this season. (Asterisks denote underclassmen) (more…)
