Replacements for Every Player on Bleacher Report's NFL Draft Big Board
Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports
Texas A&M's Kenny Hill will get the first crack at replacing Johnny Manziel.

The Philadelphia-based R&B group Boyz II Men is remembered for a lot of things, including its a cappella harmonies and the members' great fashion sense.

They also cranked out some apropos lyrics, such as one that greatly applies each year to college football's top departing players:

"It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday."

But sad as it may be, each spring we must bid adieu to the best and brightest that college football has to offer. Most of them are headed for a career in the NFL, at the very least a shot at one.
