As the 2011 college football season is in full swing, it is never too early to look at potential stars coming for the 2012 NFL Draft class. Drafting players from college is far from a science as plenty first round draft picks turn out to be busts and stars are found in late rounds.
Four games into the college season, mock drafts and big boards are already starting to pop up with the usual suspects of Andrew Luck, Quinton Coples, Landry Jones, Matt Barkley, Alshon Jeffery and Justin Blackmon around the top.
It is quite early and certainly a lot will change between now and the days leading up to the draft, but here are some prospects that could shock the 2012 NFL draft class and become great players in the NFL. Some of the players included in the list are juniors and could potentially decide to stay in school for another year.
