Week 3 offers up three SEC tilts with an interesting late game in Los Angeles.  This prospect preview will save you the in-game googling and highlight the top NFL Draft prospects in each game.

#18 Auburn vs #13 LSU 3:30 CBS

Always one of my favorite games of the year.  Auburn survived the scare of all scares last week with an overtime win over FCS Jacksonville State, while LSU won in hostile Starkville by the skin of their teeth. I get it with Auburn, and although that game shouldn’t have been that close – there is something to be said for battling back to win when nothing is going right.  Should Jeremy Johnson be the Jeremy Johnson we all expected to see, Auburn could easily walk out of Baton Rouge with a victory.

College Football is here (at last)! Opening weekend is full of cupcakes, unknowns, and major point spreads. However, these four games loaded with 2016 NFL Draft prospects will be worth your attention.

UNC vs South Carolina THURSDAY SEPT 3 ESPN 6:00 Charlotte, NC

In years past, UNC has been overwhelmed in this matchup – that won’t be the case Thursday. South Carolina is only returning 12 starters from last year’s 7-6 squad (maybe a good thing), and is a team I’m quite frankly not high on in ’15. Quarterback concerns, defensive worries, and relatively unknown faces in key positions – that describes South Carolina in a nut shell. I expect a shootout, and I’ll take the Tar Heels (+2) to win a close one. 34-30.

North Carolina Prospects

OG Landon Turner : Dominant in short spaces, struggles with flexibility in space. Great frame, but needs to work on technique. Shows good explosion at the point of attack.  Turner should have his way vs the Gamecocks. (more…)

The first bowl game of the bowl season turned out to be a last-minute thriller, as the Arizona Wildcats made up a 13-point deficit by scoring 14 points in the game’s final 42 seconds — with an onside kick in between — to win an offensive shootout 49-48 over the Nevada Wolfpack in the New Mexico Bowl.

This exciting college football game, which served as both a culmination to Arizona and Nevada’s seasons as well as a kick-off to the bowl season, also featured numerous 2013 NFL draft prospects on each side:

College football’s bowl season kicks off with the New Mexico Bowl on Saturday afternoon between the Nevada Wolf Pack and the Arizona Wildcats. In addition to the game being nationally televised — as all 35 bowl games are — NFL scouts will likely be in attendance to watch the top prospects from each team play their final collegiate game before preparing for the 2013 NFL draft.

While neither of these teams has any prospects likely to be selected in the draft’s first two days, there is some intriguing talent on both teams that could draw interest in the late rounds of the draft or as undrafted free agents.

The New England Patriots currently have only one pick in the draft’s final four rounds, but chances are good that they will acquire additional selections via trade. If so, these are a few players that the Patriots could look at as late draft picks or as free agent selections:
