2013 NFL Draft Prospects: Louisville


These are the school's prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft by status * - denotes 2014 prospect ** - denotes 2015 prospect.

This page was last updated April 13, 2013. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

  1. Mario Benavides, C, Louisville
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 300.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.15.
    Projected Round (2012): 6-7.

    4/13/13: Benavides started the season strong. He had an excellent game against North Carolina and defensive tackle Sylvester Williams. Benavides did pretty well in the Sugar Bowl against Florida, too. There were some plays where he was beaten by the Gators interior, but he had his share of wins as well.

    Benavides was a strong run-blocker and good pass-protector for Teddy Bridgewater in 2012. Benavides did not work out at the Combine.

    8/22/12: Mario Benavides enters his senior season having started the past three years at center for the Cardinals. Benavides missed the first three games of last season with a knee injury, but he returned to start the final 10 games. Benavides is experienced, and if he plays well in 2012, he should solidify his stock as a mid-round pick.

Basically, there are different diiisvons and most college football fans only care about Division I-A, which is known as the FBS. Other diiisvons are Div. I-AA (FCS), Div II and Div III. The FBS has six major conferences ACC, Big 12, Big Ten, Big East, Pac-10, SEC. The conferences are, more or less, regionally divided/decided, i.e. most Big Ten teams are in the Midwest, most SEC teams are in the Southeast, etc. The team from these conferences that win the conference get automatic bids to BCS bowl games at the end of the season, and other teams from any FBS school can qualify for other less prestigious bowl games if they win 6 or 7 games out of 12 or 13 (no more than one win can come from a non-FBS school, or else you have to win 7). Usually, teams win their conference by winning a conference championship game at the end of the regular season, i.e. before bowl games. After the six big conference winners are picked, there are a few spots left in BCS bowl games that go to other teams ranked highly, often in the top 8. And there is a BCS championship game that has to take the teams ranked #1 and #2 in the BCS poll. There are five other FBS conferences Sun Belt, C-USA, MAC, MWC, WAC. And then independent teams that are not part of a conference. In theory, any team can play another one in one of 3-4 non-conference games. But in practice, it's about money and competition. Some teams don't want to schedule good teams non-conference. Also, FBS teams never really schedule outside of Division I. If you like USC, support USC. It's not really up to anyone else to tell you which team to support. But in the US, rooting interests usually are decided by what school the fan attended, i.e. I attended Michigan and am a Michigan fan, or where the fan is from.
