Star Lotulelei and the Utes will be featured on Friday night against Utah State.
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.
Like Week 1, there are not a lot of great matchups during Week 2, but there are still great prospects on display and NFL teams will be focused on them. 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.
