Saturday College Football Open Thread

Matt Warren is Associate Director of NFL coverage for SB Nation and previously covered the Bills for Buffalo Rumblings for more than a decade.

As most of you know I'm not a huge college football fan. I watch maybe two college football games a year. The college football season's awards were handed out on Thursday with the exception of the Heisman which will be awarded tonight.

Plus Army is playing Navy this afternoon which is a game I get jacked up for. To help me out I've enlisted the help of Mocking the Draft guru Dan Kadar. Here are his thought's on today's NFL prospects:

It's always tough to project the Army-Navy game because the players have the mandatory two-year service agreement. One player to watch is Army senior defensive end Josh McNary. He projects as an outside linebacker in the NFL at 6'1, 235 pounds. He's seen extra blockers this year, but was fun to watch in 2009. As a junior, he had 22.5 tackles for loss and 12.5 sacks. The tackles for loss average per game was good for second in the nation. That's impressive no matter who you play.

Use this thread to talk about the Heisman, Army-Navy, the regular season college football awards, or anything else college football this afternoon and evening.
