Just two days away from the 2013 NFL draft, it’s the time of the season where projected first-round picks start to come out of the woodworks. Suddenly, a player who no one has been projecting in Round 1 all year starts being rumored to a team late in the first round, or one reported visit or phone call from a prospect with a team picking early propels that player into the high picks of many NFL mock drafts.

Some players, however, never generate the buzz until the draft itself comes around. Each year, there are NFL prospects who are overlooked by the majority of the draft media, only to be selected considerably higher than most projected them to be picked.

That may not necessarily apply to most of these players — we will find out on Thursday, Friday and Saturday where each player’s true draft stock, at least in the mind of the teams that draft them, lies. The following players, however, are one player at each position who has not gotten as much attention as his peers leading up to the start of the draft, even though each of these players belong at the very least to be part of the discussion.

What began as a defensive struggle between Michigan State and Texas Christian eventually concluded with a fair amount of scoring as the two teams began to find some offensive rhythm; ultimately, the Spartans were able to emerge with a 17-16 victory following a 47-yard field goal. Each of the game’s four major prospects – Le’Veon Bell, Dion Sims, William Gholston, Josh Boyce – improved their draft stock on the night. Read on for more information regarding these four juniors.

7-5 Texas Christian will play 6-6 Michigan State tonight in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl in what should be a predominantly defensive affair. TCU ranks 35th in the nation in scoring defense, while Michigan State is ranked ninth. However, although both the Horned Frogs (61st) and the Spartans (109th) have struggled to score, most of tonight’s interesting prospects are on the offensive side of the ball. Read on for more information regarding the top six players who may be playing tonight.

Michigan State defensive end William Gholston still has some concerns with his game, but he also has as much upside as any potential prospect for the 2013 NFL draft. How is Gholston’s draft stock shaping up and where does he stand in regards to other pass rushers in the 2013 NFL Draft class?

Le’veon Bell nearly beat Boise State by himself and in doing so, vaulted himself into the national consciousness. I’d expect to see “Bell for Heisman” campaigns springing up all over East Lansing.
