We continue to roll out, update, tweak, edit and revisit our projections and previews prior to your fantasy draft. And while doing so we're going to occasionally take a more-detailed look at some of the nation's more intriguing stars for 2012.
The players featured over the next month or so may not be the top player at their respective positions, but they'll be ones that caused the most discussion around our roundtable or appear poised for a breakout or letdown campaign.
Breakdowns of college football's top offensive stars can of course be found in the CFFInsider.com 2012 Draft Kit.
2012 Position Rank: How does Hamilton rank among BCS WRs?
2012 Draft Kit Preview:
The Harley-riding coach has been replaced by one who runs with bulls, but at least Cobi Hamilton still has Tyler Wilson. Despite the off-season of chaos, the Razorbacks return a talented group of football players, especially on offense. The Texarkana native has been a solid producer during his time as a Hog, however much more is expected of the now-rising senior. A great spring game has only raised the bar and Hamilton will lead the Razorback passing game. This could be enough for a season of double-digit scores.
There were high expectations for Hamilton and Marquel Wade exiting spring practice. In fact there were debates as to which one was a better fantasy prospect. Well that debate has come to a close with Wade having to sit out the year. Unless Javontee Herndon or Julian Horton surprise, Hamilton should be quarterback Tyler Wilson's top target.
At 6-3 and 205 pounds, he's got the makings of a future NFL draft pick. He's played in every game the last three years, including 18 starts. He knows this offense.
The shakeup in the coaching staff is the biggest concern. It will be up to offensive coordinator Paul Petrino to keep the offense humming. For all but the 2011 season, Paul has been Bobby Petrino's right hand man since their days at Louisville. He knows what needs to be done and new head coach John L. Smith won't stick his nose in too often. Still, the loss of Bobby is still a concern.
Hamilton and tight end Chris Gragg should be your top two pass-catching targets for the Razorbacks on draft day. With Wade out of the picture, I would move Hamilton up slightly from a mid-round selection. The Razorbacks have been known to spread the ball around in the past, but they've also had the talent at receiver to do it. Right now, Hamilton looks like to be a notch above Herndon and Horton.
