There have been a lot of articles regarding the fate of Michael Vick, the impending success of Mark Sanchez, Brett Favre going to Minnesota, the Buccaneers wiping out their entire franchise and starting over, etc.
The list goes on and on.
All riveting stuff no doubt.
But, as I sit here and look forward to the 2009 season I can't help but be just a little more excited about the upcoming college season.
I find college football far more exciting to watch and enjoy. College players have not been desensitized or spoiled yet. They still go for it on fourth down, and QB's aren't afraid to throw the deep ball.
But what happens when five of the most exciting college players that the world has ever known enter the NFL?
Will it change the face of pro-football?
Will it change the coaches and staffs?
I am talking big talent here, not just Mark Sanchez or Michael Crabtree.
I am talking about Tim Tebow, who I see making an impact similar to Ben Roethlisberger.
Some say that Tebow won't play QB in the NFL. Maybe.
I say hold on to your knickers because Tebow tops his last two seasons this year.
I think he will get better. Plus, the kid is just so damn tough.
He is a born leader and an intense competitor. I cannot wait to see where he goes in 2010.
What about Jevan Snead? Oh yeah, he will most likely going in 2010 as well.
The Ole Miss QB will no doubt be racking up more and more this upcoming season, and keeping his team in contention.
Watch for Snead to join these other three in New York for the Heisman Ceremony next year as well.
The mighty Sam Bradford will most likely declare in 2010. He will definitely if the Sooners win the Title this season.
Heisman winner and all around golden boy, Bradford has the stock, the arm and the training to make it huge in the NFL.
It may be years off, but I see Bradford very much like a Roger Staubach. Just watch him, you'll see what I mean.
Now, this is arguably a very broad topic. And there are hundreds of college players who will declare for the 2010 draft and no doubt make a huge impact in the NFL.
I am just skimming the surface here.
I will end with Colt McCoy.
Everything is bigger in Texas. And McCoy is no exception.
Watch for huge things this season. Texas feels slighted and so does McCoy.
McCoy has his eye on a serious run at the BCS Title, the Heisman, and number one draft pick.
This would be an amazing year for the BCS format to be abandoned. Imagine a play-off for the National Championship with these teams and more.
No computer could possibly have a heart the size of these guys.
Neither does the NFL.
Make room because the NFL is about to get a whole lot more exciting, we just have to suffer through this season first.
