2009 Big Board; Top 30 College Football Seniors

Andrew ButlerCorrespondent ISeptember 5, 2008

     In college football, we can notice that it's very hard to predict underclassman going into the NFL Draft, and so rather than spending ridiculous amounts of time making the conclusions of a player returning to school or going in the draft, we're going to rank the top 25 players that will for sure be in this year's NFL draft. 

     At that, I believe veteran leadership for these teams deserve a lot of respect for what they do for their teams, and how they're breaking records for their schools.  Some appreciation and recognition to those who truly wear their school colors until graduation get my respect on my big board.
