2013 NFL Draft: Ranking College Football's Top Prospects Heading into Week 12
Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE
Georgia LB Jarvis Jones has put together another sensational season in 2012

There are just three weeks left in the college football regular season, but things are still far from settled in the battle to be the No. 1 overall pick of the 2013 NFL draft. So far this season, we’ve seen plenty of high-profile players rise to the occasion and gain the trust of NFL scouts with their outstanding performances. Yet we’ve also seen more than a few well-known prospects who received a ton of preseason publicity falter and fail to live up to early expectations. 

As we head into the 12th weekend of the 2012 season, it’s clear that there’s still a lot to be settled in the coming months leading up to next April. The 2013 draft class doesn’t have a surefire No. 1 overall pick like Andrew Luck or Sam Bradford. At this point, no quarterback prospect has even proven that he is undoubtedly worth a top-10 pick, let alone the No. 1 pick in the draft.

Due to the lack of true standout prospects at the offensive skill-positions, the first round of the 2013 draft will likely be dominated by defensive players, especially defensive linemen, given the abundance of potential star pass-rushers who will be available.

It’s still too early to tell just exactly how things will play out next April. Nevertheless, here’s a look at how college football’s top 25 prospects for the 2013 NFL draft stack up at this point in the season.
