It's time to find out if Miami offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson has made the jump from being project to true prospect. Henderson isn't guaranteed to play against Kansas State, but he's at least making the trip. Henderson didn't play against Boston College last week and missed a lot of Miami's training camp for personal issues.
Even if Henderson does play, the spotlight should be in Kansas State's Arthur Brown. He's an incredibly athletic, albeit undersized linebacker. He'll get a workout against Miami's fast-paced offense.
After the jump, prospect lists, a question of the day and the key matchup.

Miami Hurricanes 2013 NFL Draft prospects:

Matchup of the day:
Kansas State LB Arthur Brown (No. 4) against Miami RB Duke Johnson (No. 8)
Johnson may only be a freshman, but he looks like a good one. He sped his way to 135 yards against Boston College last week. Brown's specialty is chasing the ball and relying on his speed.
Question of the day:
How will Kansas State's Nigel Malone hold up?
On Saturday, Malone will either line up against the speedy Phillip Dorsett or the 6-foot-3 Allen Hurns. Either will be a challenge for Malone. He's not the fastest or biggest, but he has good instincts and hands. He intercepted seven passes a year ago and is a good tackler.
