It’s never too early for NFL teams to start recruiting future players in college right? Some teams have already been looking at collegiate players this season and this weekend is going to be no different.
According to NFL.com, seven of this weekend’s biggest college football games will see multiple NFL teams there to scout out potential players. Of those games, three feature SEC teams, not surprisingly.
The Georgia-South Carolina game in Athens is garnering the most attention with eight NFL teams visiting. The Bulldogs feature one of the best running backs in the country in Nick Chubb with linebackers Jordan Jenkins and Leonard Floyd being huge prospects for the 2016 NFL Draft as well. For South Carolina, wide receiver/running back/wildcat QB Pharaoh Cooper is the biggest prospects for NFL teams to keep their eyes on this weekend.
The LSU-Auburn game in Baton Rogue and Kentucky-Florida game in Lexington both welcome in four different NFL teams this weekend. Travi Dural for the Bayou Bengals will certainly be the player to watch this weekend at Death Valley while Patrick Towles for Kentucky and Vernon Hargreaves III for Florida will garner the most attention in Lexington.
The other four games that have scouts attending are Georgia Tech at Notre Dame, which has the second highest with six, Stanford at USC with five, Cal at Texas with four, and BYU at UCLA with two. I’d expect there to be a lot of new draft boards to be popping up on Monday with all these different teams making appearances in the college football world this weekend.
