Small-School Prospects Ready to Burst onto the NFL Scene
Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

If you take a quick glance at your favorite NFL team's roster, you will realize that BCS conference teams are not the only schools capable of producing pro talent.

College football recruiting is a major enterprise nowadays, but much like forecasting the NFL draft, projecting high school football players' college potential is an inexact science. 

Because of that, plenty of talented high school players end up playing their college ball at small FCS or Division II schools away from the bright lights of programs like Alabama, Florida, Georgia, USC, Ohio State and Texas.

Join me as I introduce you to 11 of my favorite small-school prospects in this year's draft. Every prospect here will have to deal with questions about the level of competition they faced in college, but I'll explain why each of them have the potential of making a name for themselves in the NFL.
