The 2013 football seasons are quickly coming to a close.
This evening, Auburn and Florida State will battle in the final BCS Championship Game. There will be a lot of future NFL talent on display in the game, especially with the Seminoles.
Meanwhile, the NFL's Wild Card Weekend provided some of the best drama the professional ranks can offer once again. Some glaring weaknesses were made more obvious (the Chiefs' secondary), some questions were raised (cough... Andy Dalton...), and a few players showed some serious "intestinal fortitude" in winning performances (Andrew Luck).
Jay Cutler got paid, which answers one of the big questions heading into the draft as well.
We've also seen a few moves in the coaching ranks:
- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers hired Lovie Smith as their head coach. He brought Jeff Tedford and Leslie Frazier with him.
- The Houston Texans hired Bill O'Brien, who hasn't made staff decisions yet.
- The University of Texas hired Charlie Strong, formerly at Louisville, as their new head coach.
- The Tennessee Titans fired Mike Munchak, who might head to Penn State to replace O'Brien
- The Lions, Browns, Vikings and Redskins still need a new head coach.
So how do these performances and coaching changes impact the draft?
Let's take a look ahead at the 2014 NFL Draft. This time, we're expanding our projections to include the first three rounds.
