Occasionally, I get some emails from folks wanting to hear more about non-FBS football. The subject doesn't usually get much time in the spotlight, outside of a little coverage during the FCS playoffs in December or when there's a rising prospect flashing on the NFL radar come draft time.
So this week's list is dedicated to the subject: the top 10 non-BCS players (at four-year schools) that college football fans should know about in 2011:
1. Janoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama
Terry Bowden's latest pickup transferred to the D-2 school after getting dismissed from the Florida Gators in April, following his arrest on misdemeanor marijuana charges. Jenkins' run of off-field problems have been well-documented, but his on-field skills will give the NFL a whole lot to think about. The All-SEC pick in 2010 has been touted by many as a future first-round talent.
