NFL Draft notes - late college open thread

  Great day so far in college, but the big games are coming up (save for the ACC battle between Clemson and Virginia Tech that's been great for fans of defense).

  The big two are great conference games, one of which you couldn't have said that about a year ago.  The SEC night game is Florida-Alabama (MTD game notes), and if you're looking for NFL talent, you could pretty much get 15 future pros on the field at any time.  Given the popular answer from the early thread, Rams fans may want to pay extra attention when Florida has the ball to get an eye on Alabama CB Dre Kirkpatrick.  Also, look for two redshirt sophomores who I could see leaving after this season: Alabama OT D.J. Fluker and Florida OLB Jelani Jenkins.

  Of course, the other game is the new Big Ten matchup between Wisconsin and Nebraska (MTD game notes).  Again, there's a premier CB prospect in Nebraska's Alfonzo Dennard, whose skills I like better than his teammate from last year, Prince Amukamara.  Amukamara, you'll remember, was a mid-1st round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.

  And as a programming note, this week buckeyefan55 and I will release our WR Big Boards.  And no, they're not carbon copies of the MTD WR Big Board.

  So hit it up here for the rest of the night with your scouting thoughts.
