Spring is an important time in college football, both for players headed to the NFL and for players headed back to campus. The CollegeFootballNews.com tells us which players are hot and which players are not this spring.

Who's Hot

1. Former Texas CB Quentin Jammer The former Longhorn has become the talk of the teams at the top of the draft as the Carolina Panthers are making it known that they might take Jammer at the two. At worst, he'll go fourth to Buffalo. 2. South Carolina QB Corey Jenkins We all knew Corey Jenkins could run, but who knew he could pass? Maybe Lou Holtz and the coaching staff did when they named Jenkins the starter this last week. In South Carolina's spring game, Jenkins was 11 of 18 for 245 yards and four scores and just to prove he could still run, he carried the ball eight times for 91 yards. 3. The Illinois passing game Even without Kurt Kittner, the defending Big Ten champion's passing game looks as good as ever as Dustin Ward and Jon Beutjer combined to go 38 of 59 for 516 yards and five touchdowns in a recent scrimmage. Receivers Brandon Lloyd, Walter Young and Aaron Moorehead give the Illini the nation's most lethal trio of receivers this side of Austin. 4. Kentucky QB Jared Lorenzen The large No. 22 had to share the job with Shane Boyd last year, but this spring Jared Lorenzen has done almost everything he can do to have the position all to himself. In the latest scrimmage, Lorenzen was 11 of 17 for 223 yards and five touchdowns. The UK spring game is April 20th. 5. Defensive linemen in the draft As many as ten defensive linemen (Julius Peppers, Albert Haynesworth, Ryan Sims, Kalimba Edwards, Wendell Bryant, John Henderson, Bryan Thomas, Charles Grant, Anthony Weaver and Dwight Freeney) could go in the first round.

Who's Not

1. The Rose Bowl's pocketbook AT&T decided not to continue to sponsor the Rose Bowl giving no reason why the relationship has been terminated. Let us be the first to make an offer. We'd like to make a formal bid to the Rose Bowl committee of $453.59, an eight-foot roast beef sandwich with double meat from Subway and a 24-pack of Corona for the naming rights ... the Collegefootballnews.com Bowl full of Roses. 2. Former Boston College RB William Green After clocking in an average 4.55 in private workouts in March, teams started to sour on the former Eagle star. As Draft Day is getting closer, he's sliding from a sure-fire top ten pick to a projected late first rounder. 3. Former Colorado S Michael Lewis A recent test showed a heart abnormality that's knocking him down the draft charts as teams are afraid he might need surgery. 4. Michigan QB John Navarre With a quarterback controversy raging in Ann Arbor, John Navarre didn't do anything in the Michigan spring game/scrimmage to quiet his critics going 6 of 18 for 63 yards and no touchdowns. 5. Former South Carolina DE Kalimba Edwards While still considered a first round talent, teams are starting to back off as Edwards as he should slide down into the 20th pick and beyond after originally thought by many to be a top ten pick.
