2013 NFL Draft preview for Week 11 of college football


The three biggest games to watch for fans of the NFL Draft.

Let's get right into it with the game to watch.

Miami at Virginia - 12 p.m. - ABC

The main reason to keep an eye on this game is Virginia left tackle Oday Aboushi. He has steadily improved in his senior season, and will get a chance to do battle against a solid defensive front on national television. Aboushi is the best draft prospect in this game by far and frankly, he's the only reason it's even worth watching. Miami does not have much NFL Draft talent to speak of at this point.

Oregon State at Stanford - 3 p.m. - FOX

The Pac 12 has provided us with some of the most entertaining games in recent weeks. That conference delivers again in Week 11, as Oregon State and Stanford go head to head. The big name to watch for when the Cardinal is on offense is running back Stepfan Taylor, who has moved his way towards the top this running back class. He shouldn't have much trouble running the ball against the Beavers. Stanford tight end Zach Ertz is another one to watch.

Meanwhile, linebacker Chase Thomas will do most of the damage for Stanford's defense. He is a technically sound pass rusher with a great motor. The Beavers' top weapon on offense might be wide receiver Marcus Wheaton, who is still getting on the same page with his new quarterback.

Texas A&M at Alabama - 3:30 p.m. - CBS

Another heavyweight clash in the SEC. In terms of evaluating the NFL Draft, this one starts in the trenches. Alabama has a mean defensive line, but tackles Luke Joeckel and Jake Matthews form the best tandem in the entire country. That will be an entertaining matchup to watch unfold.

Offensively, Alabama's offensive line could all individually be heading for professional careers. Running back Eddie Lacy is an impressive prospect as well, displaying excellent burst and power. Quarterback A.J. McCarron built up some hype but laid and egg against LSU's defense. He still has a ways to go as a prospect.
