An idea that I have been playing with for some time, but a full season of consistent draft coverage. We have done the scouting reports for draft prospects post season for years now. I have noticed that quite a few of our readers and regular contributors wish they had a chance to really see these guys, not just the highlight tape. However until Kiper and McShay release their post season mocks, if you don't follow college football you really don't know where to look.
So this is where our On The Trail series comes into play. Each week I will post up an article, maybe a couple depending on time, detailing some players you should be watching on Saturday. Give you a quick look into their season so far, their potential and why we as Jets fans should be paying attention to them.
They will be focused on our projected needs going into the 2013 draft, they will include some underclassmen who may declare, but mostly they will be focused on seniors who will be entering the draft. The whole point of this, is to introduce potential players before the season has ended, this gives you a chance to watch them in full game mode to get a real feel for their talent, something that is very hard to do from highlight videos alone.
Anyone who has been here for any period of time will know my little saying, when I watch college football I watch it as a Jets fan first, a Notre Dame fan second and a college football fan third. I really hope that you guys enjoy the series, the first on the trail article will be up either later today or tomorrow with my pre-season watch list of 20 players Jets fans need to keep an eye on.
Let me know your thoughts in the comments section, do you like the idea? is there anything that you really want to see included?
