The conference champions have all been named, the bowl slots are all filled, and the 2012 season is almost over. 2013 is just around the corner, and so are the 2013 preseason rankings.

From the NFL draft to the graduation ceremonies that will cripple some programs, there are many factors that play into the preseason rankings. Coaches leaving programs to go elsewhere, coaches getting fired and coordinators getting promoted are just a few of the other factors.

In this article, the number of graduating seniors, the number of projected first-round NFL draftees and the current recruiting class rankings will be laid out for each projected top 25 team. Here are my predictions for the preseason AP Top 25 and the reasoning behind each one.

*Information from cfbstats.com (number of seniors on each team), cbssports.com (number of draft-eligible juniors) and collegefootball.ap.org (current AP ranking) was used in forming this article.
