Week Nine: CFB Open Thread

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

The College Football Season rolls on with some interesting matchups in the BCS Top 25. This week, we focus on the D-Line prospects.

Is it draft season yet? It is for the fervent draftniks amongst us!

There's no secret Dallas will need to infuse some talent along the defensive line this coming offseason. With the nature of the team going away from big name free agents (partially by choice, mostly by cap issues) the draft will be the way to go.

As such, let's look at the top defensive line prospects, per CBS Sports.
