  • by

The 2022-23 college football season is upon, and with the NFL season a little under a week away, the intertwining of draft talk and prospect watching will now begin.

Philadelphia has a ton of NFL draft assets for 2023 and 2024.

With Howie Roseman looking to inject even more youth into a talented roster, this college football season will provide the best overall group of talent to enter the league in years.

There are plenty of opening weekend matchups to watch, and Oregon’s visit to Atlanta to face the Georgia Bulldogs could be the most explosive feature.

With the kickoff scheduled for Saturday afternoon, here are 15 prospects to watch on both teams.

Gonzalez has excellent size at cornerback and world-class track speed.

In two seasons with the Colorado Buffaloes, Gonzalez had 78 total tackles and ten passes defended.

A breakout season could move Gonzalez into the first or second-round territory.
