Some very good threads here already talking about some college players to keep an eye on.
It's good to have one separate from the regular Cowboys and NFL forums.
Maybe there could be a couple of permanent posts for the season, discussing some of the top player performances as the season goes on. Split them up by QBs & RBs, WRs & TEs, DBs, LBs and DL. I would say OL as well, but that's not a group that's as easy to gauge by stats alone.
Since there are fans from all over the country here who follow different college teams, there would be plenty of different perspectives.
I watch as many college games as I can - I have a notebook and write down names of players that stand out. I then add them to mt database - as the season winds down I compare that against the "experts" and Kipers. They are not above reproach.
Rates and ranks all teams players. Is a bench marking tool and helps (me) when watching teams you are not familiar with.
Based on that link Nors provided, going ONLY off ratings, These are the 400+ rated players that I saw. I browsed through most of the big teams, but not every team. But basically, if we can grab one of these guys with one of our firsts I would be very pleased. (go to the link and you will know what I mean)
