I’ll never forget watching the 2003 NFL Draft. It was my third year of being truly interested in following football in a deeper level and keeping up with college football’s top prospects as they entered the NFL. In 2001, I began evaluating prospects and creating my own rankings and draft boards so by the 2003 draft, I felt like I was on my way to being the next Mel Kiper.

In the fourth round, with the No. 111 overall pick, the Buffalo Bills selected cornerback Terrence McGee out of Northwestern State and I was instantly humbled. Why? I had never heard of McGee. After all of my preparations, I didn’t even know a player who was taken in the fourth round. I took it hard and vowed to make sure this never happened again while taking my studies of players to an even deeper level.

Ten years later, a player here and there gets drafted that wasn’t on my radar but it’s very rare. This passion and drive for evaluating prospects has lead me to this great opportunity to share my work with you on Buffalo Bills Draft and now the debut of this scouting column. As for McGee, he went on to have a stellar 10-year career in the NFL; he holds six Bills franchise records and has been selected as an All-Pro on two occasions.

I have plenty in store for the 2014 season as I introduce a new crop of future NFL players. This column will be a great source to familiarize yourself with the prospects that will be selected next spring. Over the course of the season, I will feature more than 150 prospects for the 2015 draft as I highlight them in their biggest games, provide initial positional rankings, make predictions, and spotlight some of today’s best NFL draft analysts and football minds.

I hope you enjoy the 2014-15 College Football season and stay tuned as I share my thoughts.

The final college football game of 2013 is also expected to be the final college game for one of college football’s biggest superstars. Though he has still two remaining years of eligibility, Texas A&M redshirt sophomore quarterback Johnny Manziel plans to declare for the 2014 NFL Draft, according to a report from NFL.com’s Gil Brandt.

Manziel might not be the only Aggie to leave College Station early. Wide receiver Mike Evans, also a redshirt sophomore and projected first-round pick, also plans to leave school with two years of remaining eligibility, according to Brandt’s report. Redshirt junior right tackle Cedric Ogbuehi could also be a candidate to leave early for the NFL and be a first-round pick if he declares.

While Manziel and Evans garnered most of the attention with a solid game, there were many players in the matchup with potential to play on Sundays.
