USC QB Matt Barkley has struggled the last two weeks, but will try to rebound against Utah on Thursday night.
NFL representatives (general managers, scouting directors, scouts, etc.) from all 32 National Football League teams are on the road in search of the top draft eligible prospects and potential diamonds in the rough for the 2013 NFL Draft.
There are some intriguing contests between top teams during Week 6, and as always there will be plenty of great prospects on display for NFL teams to observe. Here is a list of games that I was able to confirm the presence of NFL teams, and the prospects scouts in attendance will likely have their eyes on.
