Pro Player Comparisons for College Football's Top 25 Stars
Mark J. Terrill

College football greatness doesn't always translate to NFL success. Just look at some of the players who won the Heisman Trophy in the past decade, as illustrious pro careers weren't in the cards for USC's Matt Leinart, Ohio State's Troy Smith or Florida's Tim Tebow.

Yet each time a college athlete achieves star status, the first thing we want to do is compare him to an NFL player as a way of gauging how likely it is he'll make it in the big leagues.

The current stars of college football face the same comparisons, as we have identified the pro player each most closely resembles in terms of size, skill and approach to the game.
