While the on-field workouts have yet to begin at this year’s NFL Scouting Combine, the event is already well underway with interviews, medical evaluations, measurements and as of Thursday, the bench press.

The interviews and medicals might truly be the most important aspects of the combine as a whole, but those of us not employed by NFL teams receive little information on what happens behind closed doors. We can, however, utilize the measurements and workout results to see how the top prospects in the 2015 NFL Draft stack up against one another.

By Saturday morning, every team in college football will have taken the field. The season is in full swing. Oregon and USC secured big early-season victories this past weekend over Michigan State and Stanford, but most teams have yet to face a formidable conference opponent.

Even though Week 3 doesn’t offer the marquee matchups of previous weeks, every game counts and NFL scouts are always watching. This is a week highly ranked teams need to guard against a letdown loss.

As you would expect when the two best teams in college football play for a title, there will be no shortage of NFL talent on the field when Florida State (13-0) plays Auburn (12-1) in Monday’s BCS National Championship Game (8:30 p.m. ET, ESPN).

While Heisman Trophy-winning Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston is not eligible for the 2014 NFL draft as he is only a redshirt freshman, the case could be made that every player in Florida State’s starting lineup has NFL potential, many of whom are seniors or potential early-round picks if they declare.

Auburn does not have as much talent headed to the upcoming draft as the Seminoles do, but they have had a number of breakout stars this year whose draft stocks have soared as the Tigers have re-emerged as a championship contender.

After a tough matchup and nearly getting upset by Boston College, but ultimately winning 24-14, No. 3 Clemson will face No. 5 Florida State, who won their most recent game against Maryland on Oct. 5 by a 63-0 score, on a Saturday in a game likely to decide the winner of the Atlantic Coast Conference’s Atlantic Division.

With both teams ranked in the top five of both major polls, a possible national title shot is at stake as well.

Both teams boast talented rosters filled with future NFL players, so scouts have their sights set on this game.
