I like this topic, treating the schools like stock.
My picks,Ultra conservative stock:
Alabama or Oregon. Both schools have consistently preformed well, but if they are stocks I would be buying when their stock is at its highest. Stocks trending up:
UCLA and Ohio St. are two schools whose stock had been underachieving but whose stock went up last year and should continue to rise. Penny stock:
Mississippi St, this is a high risk high reward investment. Mississippi St is on a two year probation but they have a hand-full of NFL talent on the defensive side of the ball that have the size and speed that the Seahawks like in their defensive players. They started off red hot last year, but ended the season with a thud.
A few of the players to watch are,(MLB) Benardrick McKinney:
He is a long LB in the mold of KJ Wright. McKinney is 6-5 235 lbs, he is only a sophomore and won't be eligible until the 2015 draft. He has the potential to be a 1st round pick when he enters the draft. Here is a quick article on him. http://www.forwhomthecowbelltolls.com/f ... l-sec-team(DE) Preston Smith:
Smith at 6-6 245 lbs is a junior that may be a player that comes out of nowhere to catch some NFL draft momentum during this season. (DE) Denico Autry:
Autry is another long DE at 6-5 255 lbs. He is projected to be the best of Mississippi's St defensive ends this year.(DT) Nick James:
James is only a sophomore and may not be a starter this year, but at 6-5 345 lbs he has the size that is intriguing.
