If a prospect is talented enough to play in the National Football League, NFL scouts will find them.
It doesn’t matter which school they play for or at what level. As long as they play at a high level and have the measurables and skill set that translate to the professional ranks, there’s a good chance scouts will appear at their games.
Scouts from all 32 NFL teams attend numerous major college football games during the year, and have assignments at various small schools as well.

Here are 10 small-school prospects (ranked in order) that will appear high on teams’ draft boards.
