It is finally here everyone! The wait for college football is over!! The 2019 college football season gets underway on Saturday with two FBS games in Week Zero. Below we are going to tell you what to watch, and more importantly, whom to watch this week.
WEEK ZERO PROSPECT PLATTER
Florida vs Miami (FL) 6 pm ESPN (Orlando, FL)
After watching Feleipe Franks over the summer, I found a lot to like about his game. The junior signal-caller has plenty to improve upon. However, the physical tools are there. Lamical Perine has tremendous balance and is an asset out of the backfield. Corner C.J. Henderson could be a Top 60 pick. Jabari Zuniga flashes off of the edge.
Miami (FL) Hurricanes
|53||LB||Zach McCloud||Miami (FL)||Sr||6’2||230|
|55||LB||Shaq Quarterman||Miami (FL)||Sr||6’1||240|
|56||LB||Michael Pinckney||Miami (FL)||Sr||6’1||228|
|94||EDGE||Trevon Hill||Miami (FL)||Sr||6’3||245|
|8||WR||K.J. Osborn||Miami (FL)||Sr||5’11||205|
|55||G||Navaughn Donaldson||Miami (FL)||Jr||6’5||340|
|97||EDGE||Jonathan Garvin||Miami (FL)||Jr||6’4||250|
|2||CB||Trajan Bandy||Miami (FL)||Jr||5’9||188|
The most intriguing prospect for Miami may be EDGE Trevon Hill. Hill is a Virginia Tech transfer. He was kicked off of the Hokies squad. Hill is a tremendous pass rusher who is a bit of a knucklehead. Speaking of transfers, former Buffalo WR K.J. Osborn joins the Hurricanes. Osborn is an excellent possession receiver. Miami has a trio of potential NFL linebackers.
Arizona @ Hawaii 9:30pm CBSSN
None on DFD watchlist, below from Senior Bowl watchlist

Cole McDonald started with a bang in 2018 but leveled out towards the end. He has a nice arm and is an accurate thrower. I want to see his continued improvement in 2019.
