As many guys are getting themselves prepared for the upcoming NFL draft, there is another group that is preparing for its shot as well heading into the college football season. Some players are pretty much guaranteed to go in the first round, while others have a little bit of work left to be done before you can label them a "can’t-miss" prospect.
Then there are the other players that will be treating this season like a do-or-die audition.
