Looking around at mock scenarios for the upcoming 2012 NFL Draft, I began to wonder what the draft would look like if there were no eligibility restriction on who could enter. Would the top overall prospect in 2012 still be the top pick? Where would that freshman phenom fit into the mix of things when you consider upside and limited early production?

I’ve been doing some research on the 2011 College Football season and the 2012 NFL Draft because I have nothing better to do. Plus, as a Browns fan, I have pretty much all season to look forward to the draft.
This draft class has the potential to be legendary. It’s so awesome that if I had a twin, I would want to kiss him on the lips (watch this video and you’ll know what I’m talkin’ bout). Here are a few names worth keeping an eye on during the College Football season which is just around the corner!
