Each fall camp's primary function is to prepare its team for the upcoming season. It's about working through rotations, declaring winners of position battles and game-planning for the season's first week.
But on a different level, each camp—even those of prospective BCS National Champions like Ohio State—is also about the future. It's about identifying and developing prospects who might contribute well past the 2013 season.
Every team has a few "projects" to work on this fall, some who might make an impact this coming year and others who might end up taking a redshirt.
And of those few on every roster, one usually sticks out above the rest.
